February’s Interesting Makes
Can you believe February has been and gone already?! Where had that month gone! Well February has been interesting with my makes this month.
As you will of seen from my Valentine’s day selfless makes. I’ve been quite generous to the hubby for a change! I made him a Wendy Ward Felix Tee and Thread Theory Comox Trunks.
Guess what? I finished my Felicity Fabrics Blogger project, here is a sneak peak…
A bit of pattern testing
Hi All, How are we all doing? Good news about the Lockdown gradually easing, we will get back to some normality! The lovely Faye of Studio Jepson asked if I would like to pattern test for her latest release, the Wow Jumper. I couldn’t pass up this opportunity as after all, I love to help Indie Designers rather than the bigger companies!
As you will of seen from my Sewing Goals for 2021. I did vow to make more comfortable loungewear, this pattern ticked all the boxes with added Sass!
My fabric stash was waiting to be raided upstairs. Thankfully, I just had the fabrics I needed, phew! Which meant no unnecessary spending and waiting for fabric to arrive.
I picked out this pale blue French Terry from Sew Anonymous. Ochre French Terry from the Maker’s Merchant. The floral jersey was from Gemma from her destash.
The Pattern is really easy to sew together and the only adjustment I made was to the sleeves. I shortened them by 2 inches, which is my usual adjustment to make on other patterns.
Et Voila, here is my Wow Jumper!
I did start my buddy sew of the Piccadilly PJs with Laura, which I have co-insided for my Samantha Claridge Studio Design Team Project and using this beautiful Celestial print with contrast black binding.
My word there is a lot of prep and bias binding to sew. However, the end result will be so worth the time and effort put in before sewing the actual PJs.
What makes have you been up to?
