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.
Life can change courses in so many ways and as fast a flash flood. Because of a 2100 mile move, I have to start a piano studio over again, my Etsy shop and sewing projects were put on hold, and I have to start life over again in a whole new place. But at least in some ways, I got to bring my friends with me.
I thought I just might show off another one or two of my Christmas presents. Quite a bit of my Christmas list was sewing related, although not entirely since I got my new cowboy hat!
One of my dearest friends knows me well enough to have completely nailed my Christmas presents this year. This cute little vintage picture and shotgun shell turkey decorated the outside of my gift.
I can finally put this series to rest that it should have gotten a long time ago. Why not add that fabric you are dying to have to your Christmas list? I haven't been above doing this in the past! Or maybe a gift certificate to your favorite fabric store. I think I am about to break down and buy some silk for a dress that I really want to make!
More than a day late and a dollar short, I know, but there is still time to add something to your Christmas list! Maybe some sewing machine needles should be on there..... I hardly ever remember to buy these until I absolutely need them. That and rotary cutter blades. Things like that are nice to have in the stash for whenever you need them.
Oh, dear the 12 days of Christmas series techinically ended several days ago, but I still have days 10, 11, and 12 to go! Oops. Next time I do a series like this, I will have to get everything done in advance.
Anyway, who wouldn't want a nice sketch book to document all their ideas?
So if we have nice fresh seam rippers, how about a really nice pair of sharp sewing shears!
Ug, I missed yesterday. So today I suppose I will have to make up for it. :)
How about a boat load of seam rippers? My favorite instructor from Craftsy, Angela Wolf, changes hers every week. I haven't gotten there yet, but I think using a sharp seam ripper is a great idea.
A tailor's ham and clapper are useful pressing tools to have around. I am thankful for these that my Grandma gave me several years ago. I love having these kind of items that belonged to a family member.
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.
