Matthew requested an Easter bow tie....so I traced his black bow tie (on the bias) onto this pretty polka dot pastel fabric and made him one! I'm not very fond of bow ties but every once in a while is OK, especially since it was by request!
I made this dress about a year and a half ago. I remember the day I made it- I was home alone at the Roadhouse almost all day. All my stuff was spread out on the kitchen table and I finished in once whole day. I thought that was pretty impressive since I had just learned how to read patterns! When I made it, it was a little too big. After getting married....it fits =) It was always a really weird length so last night I added an extra hem.
It is preshi.
While hemming, I fell in love with this:
It is a narrow hem foot. It's a little tricky to use getting started but once you get the hang of it, it makes a narrow hem all without ironing!! That is a dream come true!!
This is the quilt-in-progress. Who knows if it'll turn out pretty in the end!! I sure hope so.
Here is a peek of the ginormous amount of fabric I inherited from my cousins grandma. This is a really large wheel of ~4 inch wide fabric. I honestly don't know when I'll use it but it is pretty amazing!!
And that is all for now. I haven't been sewing much lately but I will start back up soon! 3 more weeks left of my internship and then a month of studying for the RD exam and packing up the apartment. There will be plenty of time to sew!
