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
Love your "sew together bag", I have the pattern and zippers and all the other I things all ready to go. All I need now is a day or so to sit down and work out how to do it. I found a blog which hosted a sew along, and it looks really helpful. Did you find it difficult at all? I love your hexagon quilt too. Great design. And of course the boy's coats are amazing.
I am loving everything you have been doing, so busy, the jackets look great and love your Hex N More quilt, your sew together bag and Social tote, will look so well together.
Great jackets. Sorry you were sick. Hope you are all better now.
