Stash influx and Quick Project
First, let me tell you about a surprise I received in the mail. While I was in NYC for Spring Break recently, I mentioned to my friend Claudine at our meetup that I had a hankering for some French Bee fabric in passing. I didn’t really search hard for it, but it’s on the back burner to find someday. Well, lo and behold, I found a package in the mail from Claudine containing the most gorgeous French Bee remnant in a beautiful colorway. LOVE. IT. It’s just enough to line a purse project or a little sumpin-sumpin. Thanks Claudine!!!
Isn’t it beautiful?
And two days ago I had a major accident of the stash variety. I walked into Yardage Town with the intent of buying poly charmeuse to muslin my Gatsby dress and walked out with a bunch of other fabrics. I’m not sure how that happened. I seemed to have a black out period where my memory is very fuzzy. Must have been the fabric concussion. Here are my lovelies…
I heart those fabrics. J’adore!
And last but not least… I whipped up a quickie project for Jack’s playdate guest yesterday. They wanted to play superheroes but only had one cape. What’s a sewist to do? Super Mom to the rescue! Haha. I checked out the stash for a quick change cape material. Since it had to be super-quick project, I went for fleece so I didn’t have to finish any of the edges. Our guest chose orange and then wanted a red S on the back. I used the cape my mom made 30 years ago as my pattern and cut out the fleece. I free-handed the cutting out of the S and then adhered it with steam-a-seam. I added some velcro at the neck with some hand stitching, et voilá! A cape.
How cute are they together???
This is the cutest age I have to say. I am enjoying it so much.
Anyway, that’s all my news. Happy sewing everyone!
