Playing around...

Yesterday, I decided to make some fabric flowers.  Which pattern? Here was my decision:

This is the Blooms flower pattern by Fig Tree.  This pattern makes two different size blooms:  2 1/2" and 3".   Here are the results of my efforts:

What do you think of my efforts?  Personally, I think that they look more frilly than the Blooms picture on the pattern.  Also, I used the template for the base as the middle of the flower and stuffed it.  I couldn't find any covered buttons at home so this was my solution. 

Happy Sewing!

New Pattern Alert....

I have some new clothing patterns available. Two are knit skirt patterns, 1 is a simple, sleeveless dress pattern, and the last one is an addendum pattern to the dress pattern. Here we go:

First up is the Bordeaux Skirt pattern. This pattern is designed for knits and has two views - knee length and maxi length.

Second is the Zinfandel Skirt pattern. This is a 6 panel knit skirt.  This would be a great every day skirt.

The dress pattern is KISS Dress. KISS is for Keep It Simple Sewing. This pattern has two versions of a sleeveless dress. A fitted version with a zipper and a pull-over version.  This would be a great every day dress for the hot weather.


Last is the Cowl Front Overlay addendum pattern. This is an add-on pattern for the KISS dress to give a little bit of a change to the neckline.

Hope this looks like nice options for spring/summer.

Happy Sewing!
