Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all our wordpress followers!

We have decided to come back to WordPress as we have noticed many of you are still checking in here regularly. We don’t want to loose our loyal WordPress followers, therefore we have decided to run a little test. We will be posting on both platforms for few months to see which platform works best for our followers.  Please help us and leave your feedback. Let us know where we should make our home in 2014!

Thanks!

Hello all,

So this will be my last post here. We’re saying good-bye to WordPress and hello to Blogger.  I think you’re going to like it. I love the new easy Pintrest roll over and our new modern look. Today we have a new post from MimiG4MLfabrics. She made a wonderful black & white cardigan for the Fall.

This is my own pattern/design as I have scoured the world for a purse pattern that meets my needs and come up empty handed. I wanted something roughly the size of a sheet of printer paper, a few inches deep, a zipper on top, front zipper pocket, and tons of interior pockets for organization.

Both the exterior and lining are linen. I fused the exterior to a very firm single-sided fusible craft interfacing to give it this much body. The sides and bottom are folded rather than separate pieces so that they are more sturdy.

New romper…

A few months ago I saw this reversible stripped knit fabric on one of my warehouse walks. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make something out of it for the blog. I loved the feel of it and the fact that it was reversible was an added bonus. Robin found this pattern and we both liked the ease and flow of it. I also like that as it cools down I can put on a pair of tights and knee-high boots and have another look. Sorry it took a few months to get it sewn & posted, but better late than never. Here are a few pics of the process and the links to the materials we used.

Pattern: Vogue 8813 Fabric: Stripped knit Buttons: Grey/brown swirl Notions: Wonder Tape

42 pcs of Kona Cotton Solids White Palette for Robert Kaufman. Hexagons are laser-cut at 2” per side, and measure 3 7/16” across the middle from side to opposite side. Please note the laser-cutting process discolors the edges of the fabric. This discoloration can be minimized with hand-washing, and that area of the fabric would be hidden in the seam allowance when pieced.

Enjoy!
