It’s the weekend!
And here’s a Winter’s Notebook post. Sorry that it is a day late.
I wanted to share with you a couple of projects that I’m working on.
Here is another January Snow Bookmark that I made. No serger stitches, as I used a couple of overcast stitches on my sewing machine.
And here is the front exterior of the new Tablet Satchel or sleeve. I upcycled an old pair of capri pants for the front. Then I cut nine 2″ squares from fabric scraps, and stitched them together for an accent square. I folded the 4 edges over 1/4″ and sewed it onto the front close to all 4 edges, as I did not want a pocket.
I purchased the book Love at First Stitch by Tilly Walnes and I’m actually reading it like a novel. The new bookmark I made came in handy to hold my place in the book.
I have two Sewstylish magazines and a Simplicity pattern 1699 on my sewing table. I’m leaning toward the Simplicity pattern for my first project to sew. It’s a sleeveless top with a back zipper. I must have purchased this pattern a year or two ago and never even looked at the directions!
As I finish the Tablet Satchel and the Fabric Square quilt, then I hope to start on my journey of sewing clothes for myself. I can’t wait!
Have a great weekend!
