A long ways back I ordered a bundle of Birch fabric basics from Fabric worm and decided to give a plus sign layout quilt a try. I only had two grey fabrics so I ended up with similar prints together, but all in all I like it. It's going to be a baby quilt and I'll keep it on hand for friends who may have baby boys in the future. Just need to sew it together!
|I have it on a picnic table cloth, and just roll it up to keep it laid out and out of the way. Works great!|
This mess is a *gasp, eek* bathing suit pattern and fabric. The suit is called the bombshell swimsuit and came with the perfect pattern parcel # 3. I am scared, but excited as I never seem to fit 1-piece suits because they're too short. Hopefully I don't screw it up! The fabric is from Girl Charlee.
This bag is also from the pattern parcel. I bought some discount outdoor fabric from Fabricland to make it, intending to make two for wedding gifts (the other would be the same colours but reversed), and to be honest I probably won't make the second one. It was kind of a pain to make, I found the instructions confusing, and the fabric wasn't the easiest to work with. Also, I don't have enough interfacing left. Very colourful and fun though!
It's meant to carry water bottles or the like. After I got going, I thought it would have been neat to do the outer pocket in the same fabric as the liner. Oh well.
In exciting news, I won a mini pack of the Allison Glass aurifil essentials thread. So awesome!!
Look who is 10 months old!! Hard to get her to sit still for a picture these days since she's been walking for a few weeks already!!
And lastly, I said in my last post that I would include a picture of myself wearing the Staple Dress that I made, so here is my lovely assistant helping me model it.
