Some fun

I bought some tracing paper in The Cloth Shop at the weekend and while there, I spotted this fun ribbon.

I think I’ll use it with one of the awesome fat quarters I bought at Pippa Blue to make a cover for my overlocker. It was only €1.80 for a metre.

And speaking of bang for your buck, I picked up some dark brown embroidery floss and one of those plain canvas totes from Aldi. Last night, I printed off the free moustache sampler from Sublime Stitching and got started. Just in time for Movember!

My amusement, clearly, is as endless as my embroidery floss.

I stalled out on the blue top I’m making because I don’t have enough interfacing for the collar. So I dug out the tracing paper and got started on something I’ve been meaning to do for ages: revise my old skirt drafting notes. I got a straight skirt drafted and mocked up in about an hour. I love wearing skirts but I’m bored making the same pattern so I have a few simple ideas I want to draft up.

Because I got that done so easily, I dug out an old blouse I’d stopped because a detail wouldn’t come right for me. This was obviously user error because it was easy to solve and I should have a neat little navy blouse with white collar for the weekend.
