Weekly Sewing, Sep 4th
During the last week of summer, I was happy with everything I managed to sew. First, I started off the week by finishing several tops and cardigans for myself, as I already posted. I also looked back at some of my earliest sewing efforts as the first in a Flashback Series I will be posting.
I finished the above purse. This is the small purse of my Curvaceous Clutch sewing pattern. I typically prefer glue-in frames, because they are faster and have a clean finish. But I do like the look of a sewn-in frame sometimes as well. I just love this rose-gold frame with the champagne and pink purse. I will be adding it to my listings this week.
Next, I started working on an embroidery project. We have a special church meeting in a few weeks where we will need white handkerchiefs. I used an old handkerchief of my husband's to practice embroidering. This is the Philadelphia temple.
This week I will be working with the actual handkerchiefs that I purchased for this.
That same weekend as the church meeting, our church youth will be putting on a giant production and I am helping some of the youth in our congregation with costumes. I made 12 mobcaps! While a fairly simple sew, 12 took a chunk of time. My husband kindly helped me with nearly all the elastic casings. My older children each gave it a shot, but they had some problems getting the safety pin to move!
This week I will be making two vests for that same church production, plus working on two different large purse orders.
