Sewing Stuff

fabric 002  I really really really want to make this  raincoat.  I spent about six hours looking over laminated fabric.  When I saw that yellow, I knew I found what I wanted.  The lining fabric was some I all ready had.  It complements the yellow so well.

The thing is—-I have a dress to put together.  When I saw the dress required bias tape, I felt much better.  I got out my cutter and went to town.

fabric 005  Naturally, I made too much.

fabric 006  I have some leftover, but I’ll use it on something else, sooner or later.

Time for a New Raincoat

August 24, 2015

My old one went ‘somewhere’ when we moved.  I thought, I really don’t need one anymore.  Then, last week, while getting my hair done, the rain came down in buckets.  Even though I was parked right outside the door, I didn’t want to chance it.  A hooded raincoat would have been nice.  My favorite quilt shop was having a sale.  I bought Amy Butler’s raincoat pattern, but I didn’t like any of their laminated fabric.  I started looking elsewhere.  I had no idea there were so many.  I spent about two hours looking yesterday and another hour today and I still haven’t made up my mind.  You know it can’t be ordinary.  Totally bizarre is probably my best bet—less likely to get run over.  I don’t know.  I don’t know.  I think I’ll go knit.

I finished my monthly mini hangy thingy today.

Usually, I make two cat squares.

The trouble is —– I really want to make another Tulip Purse.  I bought laminated fabric in three different designs with lining fabric that “kind of” goes with it.  I couldn’t make up my mind so I bought all three and now, I can’t decide which one to make first.

But, you know.  There’s that little change purse kit I bought.

I think I’ll go knit.
