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.
I thought I would share some designs that I hope to use with those fabrics I got recently. I hope to be able to get working on a project soon. I also have a few home decor projects to work on too. Cowhide, suede, and leather lacing are on the supplies list.
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. Oh, wait. Wrong story. This wasn't a long time ago nor in a galaxy far away. My last project was about two months ago and that feels like along time ago and a whole other world.
I know I have been a little neglecting of my blog of late. Unfortunately that is all my fault, but I can't promise that it will get any better. Actually, I think it will get worse. Life is going to be very hectic and crazy for me for the next few months so that I won't get very much done to feature on the blog. But I do have some sewing things going on right now that I can outline for you.
I haven't been completely lazy lately, although I didn't manage to get a post out Monday. I will use the fact that is a national holiday as my excuse.
I have finally gotten around to putting together a bodice moulage and without too much tears and anguish over fitting problems.
I have been working on my personal pattern slopers or pattern blocks starting with the bodice moulage. I want my clothes to fit well and I think the best way to do that is with custom patterns.
I have managed to clear out some of the projects that have been piled high, though in the process they seemed to multiply like rabbits. ('Cause in the middle I was given some more alteration projects.)
I finished my silk ball gown! Yippee! It is done with plenty of time to spare. Now hopefull Miriam will be able to finish hers in time. Due to some unforseen circumstances, I won't be able to help her finish hers.
My silk dress is all cut out without any major catastrophe. I started sewing last night and have continued today. I am trying to do as much machine sewing as I can before I start working on the seam finishing.
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.
