Inspiration, What's New, and "How many days till Christmas?"

One of the big items for fall/winter is a knit pencil skirt. If you like wearing the latest fashions but not always the price tags that go along with ready-to-wear fashions, you should give The Magic Pencil Skirt pattern by Pamela's Patterns a try:

This pattern gives you two waistline options - natural and a high waist.  The waistband is elastic so there are no zippers involved.  Instructions are given for selecting the correct size.  I would love to hear about the fabrics that you are using to make this skirt.  I will be trying a double knit.

There are so many new items in the store.  Patterns, fabric, and notions with more coming in every week.  Here's the link to check out "What's New" at eBay.  There are new items being listed at Etsy and Bonanza, also.  Here's a few of the items:

Here's two fleece prints from Camelot.  They are wonderfully soft.  The fabric remind me more of cudde cloth than fleece.  They are 100% polyester and 58/60" wide. 

There are new kits using the Easy Mitered Placemat instructions, the Caserole Kimono pattern by Legacy, and an Arts and Craft caddy using the Artful Bags pattern by Serendipity Studio. 

Did you know that this 70 days till Christmas?  Are you wanting to sew gifts or give sewing related gifts?  Remember, I can special order items for you.  Just let me know what you are interested in and I will check and see if it's available.

Happy Stitching!
