Lightweight Faux Fur and Minky Jacket and Scarf



No More being Chilled at Work in the Warehouse!... Surrounded by Fabric

Pieced this Jacket from leftover Minky and Faux Fur

I had to piece more than the pattern, because my leftover pieces were not big enough, but I used the narrow pieces to put in a waist section 


Started with this Scarf that I loved its light soft feel.

                                       This is the Reverse Side

Sewwwww, I said... hmmm let's take the leftover pieces and piece it with the leftover minky.  They all have the lightweight and soft feel.

Under it all I have my Faux Serpa and Suede Vest!
Didn't need the Serpa Scarf for this outfit.

I do NOT like COLD weather!

Made two lightweight Jackets and sewn together at the top and flipped... became one reversible Jacket.  Topstitched down the sidefront and around the collar.... then through the collar seam to make it lie flat.

Shoes-Clutch-changes in Improvising...

 Well, I am not going to talk about this outfit anymore...

I was so tired when I got home from work.. I zonked... The plan was to wear this tomorrow... but

I finished parts and when I went to do the tear drop on the bottom of the underskirt there was not enough of the green netting to do the whole tear drop under... I did the skirt and the tear drop piece is huge...There was only enough to do one side...I can piece it strangely-do a different green on the bottom or do a white lace ( I have a big piece I could used... so maybe both

This is the last of mentions of this one except the last pics of finished products....

I did not have enough to cut two of these out on the fold for the 7 teardrops.... so... I have

The underdress is made of the netting... but the teardrop ran out.. I could use the beautiful burnout dark green chiffon with the satin leaves on it.... Ohhhhh I hate to just cut part...maybe try to do the whole skirt and tear drop out... or just the teardrops and then have enough for fancy blouse or dress insets in some othe fabric which is what it was bought for.... AHHHHH

I don't have enough of the chemise left over for the tear drop... or the bag of netting scraps..I could piece it ??? ewww... back to using my pretty fabric... Too many decisions.

Improvised and used the netting for the top of the dress and sleeves, since I was going to use the dark green chemise I had made to wear under the dress.

I cut the teardrop out of the beautiful burnout and cut the pieces for the comfort espradrilles so I can hand sew them while I watch a goofy netflix...  maybe the clutch....eeeee

The Green Dress is beautiful, but I love the yellow coat dress too, so together I have the best of both worlds and an example of all kinds of sewing.

This is one of my most expensive outifts, of course, it is really two dresses.  The coat dress buttons were 9.00 each-gold with green satin ribbon woven through the buttons.  The bottom trim on the teardrops is venetian lace and the white lace larger pieces, came from the evening wear table.

Lace that was embellished on tears-alternated between white and colorful lace.

Now, I have a clutch, shoes and embroidery and handwork to do on the shoes... and more decisions..

Here are the parts...???? I need to do it and be done.

We Have some Wedges

Now the younger set would go with these, but since I have a pull in my side from loosing my balance and flying across the room 

and catching myself.... I think I won't go with the wedges tonight

Needles thread stabilizer and ideas for shoe espradrille tops

Ideas of making a medium wedge not flat into a comfort espradrille I can wear all day at work and be walking on air...?Layering the insole padding.

Faux stretch black leather look and faux neoprene stretch black suede and stretch faux suede in dark green.... so a wrap on top of some kind with these and embroider a butterfly or 3D a butterfly on the toes or on one of the shoes...???    andddd  don't forget the matching clutch... oh maybe not tomorrow...

Now I am too tired to do anything... BUT.. remember I have a very small space and everything is on my I have to do something or I can't go to bed....AHHHH

I cut the teardrop out of the beautiful burnout and cut the pieces for the comfort espradrilles so I can hand sew them while I watch a goofy netflix...  maybe the clutch....eeeee

Butterflies Baby Blanket


This design of mine of my butterflies from my garden came out beautifully on Minky.  The colors are beautiful, like the butterflies and it will be a wonderful blanket for the new baby. 

After I make the baby's blanket, I will make some for sale at my Etsy shop.

Watch for a new series of Shrugs with facemasks and earrings, plus baby sets.
