There's my Duffel Bag. Lying there with no bottom and no shoulder strap nor handle.
It took me 6 hours to sew the side panels in because I was overzealous in my fabric choice (see my last post on Home Dec Fabric). I swore like a sailor through the sides - I have some serious contrition in my future.
My Serger is too long at the Spa - I suspect the technician doesn't want to tell me that I may need to pull the plug. I miss it so! I have a backlog of projects I would like to dive into, but I am letting it's absence hold me back.
I have The Cold keeping me out of the basement, too; and DH is on a terrible shift these next few weeks with a class of trainees on a evening shift. I doubt I will get much done in the evenings unless DS2 is into sleeping in his crib at 8pm (rotflmao). The Cold has had me blowing my nose for 10 days now - my sewing room is a petrie dish (gross) - and I can't spray it down with lysol like my MIL suggests.... .
So - What's on the burner?
- Manilas in Galaxy Sunset
Thrifted / Stash Fabric - It sparkles, It's Orange and Yellow and Pink - Spandex, I think.
- Lisette's Passport Dress 2209 in a Hunting Border Print (Rayon?) It's stash fabric again
Sally at The Quirky Peach did a cute version and her stripes at the centre pleats have me inspired. I like Wendy K's Centre Back Zipper
- I am going to finally trace Vogue 2491 (OOP) and make the vest out of a crazy stash fabric:
I have to decide which direction to run the stripe:
- Finally, I have just added to my stash: and have plans for a top and skirt:
new addition: a cool Ponte
I was thinking View C of Simplicity 1945, but this image of Threads' Review has changed my mind and I think I will make view B - I found Haileyscomet's version in a similar weight Ponte hmmmm.... I will have to test the fabric thickness this time - and avoid my duffel bag density. Maybe I'll make it in something else first to test - my last wrap front is too hot with all the layers.
Here are the patterns added to my stash this week from the thrift store:
