Purse Insert Completed

Hello Everyone,

I completed the purse insert and absolutely love how it came out. Everything has a place and will keep my purse neat. Here is the purses are too small to fit this beauty. Luckily, Sue (my instructor) told me that this company also makes a smaller version of this insert. The pattern can be found at Studio Cat Designs.

I had so much fun picking out the coordinating fabrics at Joann's. I originally had the red and white polka dot and the black and white flowers. Pretty much everyone ran a little short in class, so, thank goodness Sue had extra fabric (the black and white polka dots).

Here is how it came out:

Here is what you need:

  • I used 3 fat quarters for each exterior and lining, but, ran a little short. Next time, I will increase to either 4 or 5 fat quarters for each the exterior and the lining.
  • 2- 7" regular zippers (not invisible)
  • 1- 9" zipper
  • 1- 14" zipper
  • 1 package of extra wide double fold bias tape
  • thread
  • you will also need stabilizers, interfacing and elastic.
Hope you are having a wonderful day!!

Happy Halloween!!

E's Button Down Shirt

Good Morning Everyone,

Here is my handsome husband, E, wearing my latest creation. I have to finish the cuffs. The buttonholes and buttons are there, but, I just want to make sure that E is comfortable with his watch on. I really enjoyed making this shirt for him and can't wait to make more clothes for him.

Here is the McCall's pattern (B) that I used. It says on the pattern that it is a "two hour" shirt. I hope one day it will become one. I don't think they factored in cutting the fabric in that equation LOL.

I hope you all have a wonderful day.

One Project Completed!!

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday's sewing class was a lot of fun. We had a good time sewing for seven hours. Unfortunately we did not finish the purse insert. It took us two hours to cut the fabric and that set us all back. Hopefully, I should be able to complete it this week.

I did finish one of my projects the baseball shirt (Pattern B). I had a lot of fun learning how to work with knits and I using my serger. I've always loved the comfort and style of this shirt and will be making more of these. They are perfect for those cool days in Autumn.

I am also going to get patterns for E and make him baseball shirts. After I complete my certificate, I will be making Pattern C.

Here is the finished project:

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
