Friends of Conant Public Library Craft Fair, Nov 14, 2009

Here are a few of the items that will be at the show tomorrow.   A circular clothes-pin bag made with Sunbrella fabric.

There are three "slouch" bags, each made with a different home dec fabric (thank you Wheezy!)  Two of them still need some hand work, but what else will I have to do tomorrow?
A new set of Michelini Travel Bags, all cotton batik with vintage buttons.
And ofcourse, the aprons. This set is made with a vintage 1928 bias cut pattern.. camera was a bit goofy this evening (or it could have been me), but the drape on these is lovely.
I hope I see some of you on Saturday!

Three More .... 1946 Aprons

SO, I think I have the 40's covered. Looking for a great pattern representation of the 30's and the 20's if any of you out there can help me! Here are the last three full bib aprons for the Fall Fair on Saturday. I shot these yesterday late so the colors aren't true, but if you come to the fair you can see them for yourself!

Moms birthday

I can't believe that it has been almost five months since I last posted here!! Busy with the bakery, job searching and life in general. Here is one of my latest ~ a tunic blouse for my Mom for her birthday (shhh !! she hasn't seen it yet.)

White embroidered linen, 3/4 length sleeve (thanks Liz!) and red shell buttons. I adapted the pattern from a BurdaStyle pattern 'Ellinor' from their download collection. Originally styled as a pull over top I added a neck and front facing so it would be open down the front and then added loops and shank buttons. The sleeves of the original pattern we also quite belled and long, so I shortened them and straightened the line. It really does look better than the photo and maybe if I can get my mom to model, I will post a photo!

Ch Ch Ch Ch Changes

OK, So maybe the IDEA of sewing lessons was a good any case they are not happening. I am working on a few projects and should have photos up soon. A new English/Italian counting book, a quilt and a new handbag.....
