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.
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 plead very guilty to the charge of fabric hoarding. Hopefully, these projects will actually get done in a reasonable amount of time.
I have a bit of a fabric obsession. What I feel is my one saving quality is that when I buy fabric I buy it with a project in mind, such as I want to make a dress out of this (specifics unknown), or I want to make this specific design out of that.*** The problem is that I buy the fabric and then have to store it until I manage to get around to that project. The other problem is that I can't really "shop my stash" so to speak when I have a new project in mind. I usually have to go buy more because the rest has been spoken for. :)
New fabric added to the stash: rayon polka dot stretch denim.
Leave a comment with your guess as to what I will be using this denim for!
This is one of the newest releases from Melody Miller with Cotton + Steel from the collection Trinkets. I thought this fabric with all the spools of thread would make a wonderful novelty print 1940's dress.
I have been adding to my fabric stash over the last few months, and I haven't shared for quite awhile my latest purchases. Since there is quite a large stash, I will separate this into two posts: one for rayon, and one for cotton prints. I might as well start with the two rayon prints above. I bought these matching rayon challis prints to make skirts for my Etsy shop. The blue has already been cut and sewn. All the skirts are just waiting to have elastic stuck in the waistband. The black is still waiting to be cut.
