Take Two….

So last week I did a blog post about the Tulip from CloBird Designs and as I stated there were many mistakes in the first one.  So I decided to take two.  I whipped up another Tulip for a fellow sewer in a birthday group that I belong too.  Here is the second one that I absolutely love.  This little case is perfect size for sewing notions!




Patterns for Pirates

So today I thought that I would whip up some Peg Legs by Patterns for Pirates http://www.patternsforpirates.com to test out my White Superlock DW734 that I haven’t used in 15 years.  This pattern was easy to print and match up.  The pattern sizing was very true to size.  The material I used was some super cheap and super thin 4 way stretch that I found at Lens Mills in London Ontario.  The pattern went together very easily and the directions were very detailed!  This was a super quick so and probably took an hour to cut out the fabric and sew together.  All in all great pattern!!


Getting Started

Today I have decided to start writing a blog to detail my adventures in sewing.  Recently I have been making bags.  The first bag I would like to blog about is the one I have created most recently the “Tulip” by Clobird Designs – this is a free pattern offered by Crafty.  I will add the link at the bottom of the post.  I love this little accessory bag it is quick and easy to sew and is very spacious!  The pattern consists of three different sizes including a passport size.  The fabric I used is grey linen I purchased at Jo Ann Fabrics in Port Huron and the flower fabric is Michael Miller and was purchased at Ye Olde Fabric Shoppe in Stratford ON.  My Tulip is not perfect but was a fun quick sew and will hold my supplies for an upcoming class.  Please check out CloBird Designs Group on Facebook and try out some of Karis Vail Hess’s patterns.
