  There is sooo much going on around me and in my head. Fabrics and sewing boxes from  Gstreetfabrics.com Sometimes I actually sit in this corner Potato Bags, Oven Mitts, and Bowl Cozies are cut out, just need to sew! I just need to mail this or drive it to my friends a few hours away! Two Tote Bags, a butterfly blanket 3/4 quilted a blue blanket that needs the embroidery put on for grandson, a babyset that needs only to decide if I want to trapunto the minky kitty on the front? uhhhhh... I think I will watch a movie...LOL That is my bed that everything is laying on...I won't be napping there!! Then I will post which things I decide to finish! Other things you can read one of my blogs about... remember there are always many pages of past blogs with howtos in them.

Sew a List

Image
 Production Time Lags-Make a List and Check it Off My list today Adjust the coat sleeves and put the buttons on my Copper Coat It is cold now!-Make matching Tote from Left overs that are same as my purse.  Remember this is a reversible coat as are all my coats.  I don't want to get bored...LOL  This one unfortunately I love both sides so much it is hard to decide which side to wear.  It is determined by which outfit I have on, whether I want a black collar or a copper collar next to the outfit. When I actually finished this I decided to put the buttons on the opposite sides.  I found these cool toggle button loops so I used those so the loops close the jacket and I didn't have to put buttonholes in the pleather. The cuffs of serpa are roll up so they are warm and cozy on either side and I can unroll them and cover my hands if I forget my gloves..which I do often as I run out the door. Reverse Side Reverse Side Back   I love these toggle loops, with arrowhead tabs, from Gstreetf

Shoes of comfort

Image
  Attempting comfortable soft shoes to stand in 10 hrs Soft leather from the leather bin at  www.Gstreetfabrics.com  vinyl with cork side for bottom of inside shoes and espridrilles bottom from Etsy with Grocery or Pharmacy that sells Dr Scholls inserts for the inside. Bottoms Cork will face down, this a soft vinyl-caramel colored with cork back Foam insert cut to size Dr Scholls Arch Support soft insert cushioning Bought two soft skins- to make matching clutch and or bag of same.  Thinking style will be a full shoe cover with cross over straps that are sewn in with elastic back to slide shoe on. I ordered some shoe glue.  I have a palm thimble and was going to sew it, but I think I would like to glue the bottom on and maybe hand sew it with a blanket stitch for design element only.  This leather is so soft and it feels so good on my foot.  I am going to use some elastic in the back and velcro for the strap wrapping.  (I am still thinking!?) Don't forget using your leftovers.... T

Purse--Handbag--Clutch--Change Purse

  No Pattern, Using a piece of leftover copper from the previous Color Block Jacket-That became the size Then Folded and squared like the Tote bag instructions in SewAlongwithkitty.com Cut the outside piece and cut the inside piece. Took the inside piece and cut it about a sixth of the way down one side and put a zipper in to form a pocket  I used an invisible zipper because that was what I had. Folded the outside and then took a piece of fabric and put the lining on the otherside of it to form the rectangle for the  outside pocket - sew around the outside of the pocket onto the outside piece, leaving an opening so there is a pen pocket at the bottom and then sew across above it.   I used the pleather lining to sew tabs on each side with D rings so I could add a chain handle and also I like to link my keyring on one side of my purse so I don't lose my keys. Added a change purse to the inside by folding the pleather lining piece into a narrow strip and sewing an end into the change
