I finished these all up weeks ago and haven't posted for ages. Oops. Sometimes
I've made a few t-shirts lately from my own pattern and have shared those pictures on social media, but I thought I would round them all up and post them here as well!
I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I sure did. I thought I would share some (okay, most) of my gifts that pertain to my love of sewing and vintage.
The pattern drafting paid off for me big time. I only needed to make a few alterations to get a basic sleeveless t-shirt pattern. I will now use this pattern to make a few t-shirts from the double brushed poly I bought. With a few alterations, I will make a more fancy t-shirt by including some ruching, and will also use it as the basis for the bodice of a few knit dresses.
I turned my woven sloper into a knit sloper and made a few modifications for the first try of my own t-shirt pattern. I would have started working on the top itself, except I had to wash the fabric.
My Christmas project for this year got its first airing this past weekend with a Christmas piano recital.
All I seem to do are home decor projects anymore...... We hated the valances in the living room and dining room, so we took those down. But we were left with the wooden frames and with family coming for Christmas it got to the point something had to be done.
So here is a sneak peek of what my current project plans are or other sewing related news.
I would like to hang this in my room during Christmas. I bought this panel at Hobby Lobby last year when I was visiting my Grandparents. I originally thought I wouldn't be able to get it done this Christmas. I didn't want to spend money on sewing projects but our new Joanns store was opening and I had a gift card! So I was able to get the batting, and I searched the stash for a suitable backing.
After the hearth cushion, we needed a few more couch pillows to fit our new decor style. So I got to make pillow covers! This time faux cow hide and faux suede, but much better for a throw pillow.
A day late and probably a dollar short, my post for this week is up. Anyway, last Saturday I finished a cushion for our hearth. Cowhide rug makes the top of the cushion and genuine suede the bottom.
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
