The new Fall issue of Stitch magazine is out and is full of great sewing projects—complete with patterns and directions.
I was flattered and so excited to be featured in the Sew Inspired column, which appears on the last page, about my sewing process and what keeps me going. And it's double triumph to me to have a photo in a magazine wearing fake hair.
I love this quilt project designed by Kevin Kosbab and there are directions for how to make it! You can find Stitch magazine at local fabric shops—both independant and chain shops, I believe. You can also get it direct from Interweave. Looks like they have good prices on back issues, too.
- I am now on a 1920s kick from regular watching of House of Eliott and it's making me notice the abundance of ponchos, capes, and loose fitting blouses with bat wings/kimono sleeves that the youth are now wearing. Or, at least, the shops seem to be selling. They have these 1920s vintage shapes, with completely 1980s fabrics—which vexes me. In that vein I want to sew something like this. I want it to be sheer and totally impractical. Something the cats and children would surely destroy. This blouse over at BurdaStyle would be lovely to sew up a 1920s look as well. With embrodiery, perhaps?
Random family quotes of the week:
Me, talking in the car:
Oh, it's one of those things I just know I'd be good at. Like poetry or roller derby.
Pete, upon waking up this morning:
I was terrified of the buzzer on Family Feud. It was too loud.
