Envelope Cover Tutorial

Hi all,

Sorry I have been absent for so long. I just popped in to add the Tutorial for the Envelope tablet cover to the Tutorial page.


If you go to the Tutorial Page and click on the picture it will open the tutorial as a PDF.

Please let me know if you have any problems. I would love to see pictures of your project too!

BTW - the cover is approximately 10" x 8" finished. So check the measurements of your tablet and adjust size to suit!

Bye for now, Jess

Indelible Datura Blouse

Hi all,

This week, inbetween many other things, I managed to make another Datura Blouse.

I used the gorgeous Indelible range, and I didn't prewash the fabric...I hope it doesn't come back and bite me!

I have a little stash of premade bias and used this cute black with white polka dots for the hem. And I found three of the dark teal buttons in my stash too. So this blouse was made completely from my stash! Winning!

In other news my Clowns Choice quilt is in the 2015 Quilters Companion diary, yay! When I get one I will share a pic.

Bye for now, Jess

Catch up

Hi all,

I guess it has been a few weeks since I did my last blog post. So what have I been up to?

Well I made a couple of coats for my boys. I used black corduroy and lined them with a really cool tech print patchwork fabric.

I used the Spring Showers Jacket pattern by Elegance and Elephants. They went together really easily, the only issue I had was with the length of the zip but I fixed that by using a piece of ribbon to cover the cut edges at the top. I made a feature of it and used different colours on each jacket.

Then I got horribly sick with pneumonia and didn't do anything for about a week and a half. But when my sewjo came back it was back with a bang!

I played around with the Hex-n-more ruler and came up with this quilt. I love it! It does have Y seams but they really aren't that scary anymore.

And last weekend mum and I got together and made Sew Together Bags. I had a great time!

I went a little crazy with my fabrics and used a different fabric for everything but I love it!

Right now I am working on the Gypsy Wife quilt and I have some dress fabrics washed and ready to go...so stay tuned!

Bye for now, Jess

Determined

Hi all,

I am determined not to let my problems with my blog stop me from blogging any longer!

Spring Showers Jacket

A few weeks ago I was looking at my google + account and freaked out that my photos setting was public. So I changed to the setting to private and like magic all my photos from the last 6 months of blogging have disappeared.

I have figured out that I need to setting to be public do that I can share the photos myself. So I have put the setting back but that hasn't restored all the photos that went walk about. I will gradually work my way through uploading them over the next few weeks.

I was so annoyed when I realised what had happened that I was ready to give up. But my blog is like my diary, even if no one else reads it I can still look back and see what I have done.

I have included some photos because it's not a post without them :) I will do another post about the jacket soon, I am making a second one now so both my boys will have one.

Bye for now, Jess :)
