I Have Been Sewing

Here are a few pictures of part of my sewing this past week. I will post individual posts and reviews for each item, probably one post per day for 4 days. Very scientific, right!

First, Amy Butler's Sophia Bag. I can't even begin to say enough great things about this bag. It is wonderful all around. I will tell you all about the construction and my changes tomorrow. I go to my friend's quilt shop on Friday afternoons after work and cut out large projects. She has this huge cutting table, 4' x 8' probably, I cut out the Sophia last Friday and I cut out Amy Butler's Weekender Bag today. It is so fun to visit with my friend and we do something sewing related. She cut out her Sophia today.

Some crafting but not great pictures - A cupcake pincushion, pattern by Sandi Henderson. I will take better pictures for my review post.

BWOF #114, 10/2008, this is a great top.

Now if you want to sew-a-long, head to Episode 38 of the Sew Forth Now podcast and join. We are making the Franzi vest from Burda Style website. I hope there are others participating. One thing for sure, I will be using Burda Style for a pattern resource more often, this was very easy to print and put together. More details later.

That is just what I remembered to take pictures. The following is a complete list:

  • 6 potholders and 6 notecards for a swap

  • Put binding on Meredith's quilt which just came back from the machine quilter

  • Helped Meredith make 4 placemats for Christmas

  • Helped Meredith make a clock from Pretty Little Patchwork

  • Cut out fabric from Meredith to make another quilt, she has the blocks sewn together and is ready to set the blocks together. She will be doing that tomorrow, the quilt has to go to the quilter on Monday.

  • Bought some fabric and I am prewashing it right now.

Up next, a BWOF trench coat.
