Sewing was an accomplishment in December and frankly, I was surprised at how much was accomplished. Here’s the list:
First up is an OOP McCall’s 3343 skirt VB –
I made it in light grey wool and lined it with a light gray lining. The skirt pattern doesn’t have a lining with it. The pattern was very easy to create a lining using the existing pattern pieces.
The fabric and the lining were from my huge stash. I did have to convince myself that I didn’t need to continue saving it. If I lose weight, I will make more. This is a big plus in my book as the stash in now down about 3 yards.
Second project was the Round Folded Star Hot Pad pattern by Plum Easy. Here it is:
Here’s my version:
This was the craft project for the month. A friend and I get together once a month and do something. This was a nice project. We both had everything cut out and ready to go. Start to finish was 2 ½ to 3 hours. I’m ready to make more for seasonal decoration in the kitchen. This was also a stash project. It didn’t reduce the stash by much. Maybe 2 or 3 fat quarters.
Third project was the Easy Striped Table Runner pattern by Quilt Company P:
Here’s my version:
This was fun to make even if it took me a little while to get to it after I cut it out. I quilted it with perle cotton using big stitches. This technique really needs a thimble.
Fourth project was a new cover for a butterfly chair where I used the existing cover as the pattern:
My son picked the colors. Yes, it had to be Steeler colors and it had to have the stripe. I was a little bit worried that the machine I had at work would not have the umph to make it through all the layers of canvas but it wasn’t a problem.
I also finished a crotchet project before Christmas. Here it is:
I found this project in “Crochet One-Skein Wonders” by Judith Durant & Edie Eckman. Yarn was Patons Lace Sequins in Crystal. Love the yarn that I used.
