It’s a Sewing Party! – March Edition

In late January, my friend Tiffany & I got together for a sewing party. We both had some projects we wanted to work on & thought it would be fun (and motivating) if we made it a social thing. I’m so happy she suggested it! The first time we got together was in January and we had a pretty great time. She worked on some gorgeous placemats and I started some bags and coasters made from strips. Neither one of us finished our projects that day but we decided we absolutely had to make it a regular thing.

Last week when I was in Green Bay I stopped by Tiff’s to see her & Ev and helped her figure out her placemat pattern (chick at fabric store sold her the wrong stuff so we were highly confused for a bit) and explained how to attach the arms to the snuggie she’s making. While I played with Ev, she finished the placemats. I have yet to finish the bags and coasters… oops.

Anyway, since I wasn’t able to spend nearly enough time there last weekend, I’m heading back tomorrow. Tiff is giong to finish up her snuggie and I hate to say it but I’m going to cross over from the “Snuggies Suck” line and make one for myself. Hey, these warm days/cold evenings make it difficult to regulate heat in The Hut and, as much as I love it, my woobie just doesn’t help me out as much as I’d like. Don’t get me wrong… Woobie & I spend tons of quality time together and we always will. I just need another comfy “friend” to help me out on these cold evenings. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. Plus, I may add a hood to mine if I get brave so it’ll be super cool and extra toasty.

    Hey …….. since you are great at picking out contrasting fabrics & I am not …… can you find one for me? You have the bold fabric I will be using … this is the valance I am going to make http://www.patemeadows.com/ruth.htm … piping & trim will definitely be black. I want something for the backing fabric that is subtle but not boring.

    Are ready to accept this mission?

    Ohcrap. I sent the fabric north with Rachel when she went back yesterday. She was going to give it to Ken for you.

    Despite the challenge I face, I can still do accomplish the mission in one of 2 ways, well 3:

    I can see if Hancock Fabrics has it in stock yet and if they do, use that to compare.

    Rachel is coming back down on Monday next week then she has classes on Mondays & Tuesdays starting the 15th so she can bring the fabric back down with her.

    Or… The cutness of said bold fabric is burned into my brain & they still have a photo online so I can go from photo/memory (which I’ve done before and still had excellent color matching).

    How should I proceed?

    a snuggie with a hood sounds cool! where did yet your pattern for the snuggie? ken bought fabric to make one but hasn’t yet. i’m glad you love your woobie!

    @Bonnie – most of the time fabrics have contrasting fabric colors on the white edge of the fabrics.

    @Jeanne, I found a pattern online…

  5. Bonnie says:

    I have 7 yrds pre-paid on hold at Hancock Fabrics in Appleton! I was gonna have someone pick it up & they called me this week to see if I want it mailed to me.

    PeeEss: I really like the broken threads in the graphics of this skin. And … can you add a subscribe to comments plugin?

  7. Kit-Kat says:

    @Bon… Comment subscription thingie added! Rachel is bringing your fabric down on Monday. Or did you still need someone to pick up the fabric in Appleton?

    @Jeanne… the sleeves on that pattern are way skinny. instead of cutting 24″ up, cut 30 inches and use a 9×7 oval for the sleeve holes.

  8. Bonnie says:

    If someone can pick it up, that would be cool. Otherwise I’ll have them mail it out on Tuesday.
