That's cute, looks like you did a grand job.  :sew:

Definitely the type of pattern you could make multiple versions of

@Francesca Ray Stitch has some Sevenberry lightweight canvas in a similar print. Sorry not tech-savvy to put a link in

@fajita that's a lovely sentiment, I'll remember that next time I'm tearing me hair out  ><
My current project is a shift dress using two different fabrics, I've got as far as putting the pocket on and the V neckline, hoping to be finished this week if I get cracked on.

Will post pics and explain the reasoning behind the fabrics then  0_0

@fajita @annieeg Thanks it's Sooki on the sofa and Max in the kitchen. I won't confess to how long those costs took to make  :o :S

I've posted a couple of pics of my hounds in their new coats; I didn't know if I'd done it right so there were no words to go with it   :o

Can the pics be seen?!

Just gone back into this and can see the pics are there and have been viewed so I know it works. Got confused as I got the tut notes for non-subscribers but I am now a fully paid member so can attach them in a straightforward way. Pardon my ramblings, I'll shut me brain up now  :S

In the wardrobe / Did I invent a seam?!
« on: March 11, 2019, 15:28:16 PM »
OK don't laugh, I think I invented a seam. I've consulted my book of Complete Dressmaking Skills and it's not in there...

What happened : I'm making a shift dress from drapey polyester and was about to 'overlock' the seams after sewing them when I realised - too late, as per - that I should have done French seam as it is likely to fray away to nothing the messy little swine, and overcasting will look reight rough. 

Not wanting to unpick a perfectly good seam I folded and pressed both sides of the seam allowance in on itself and stitched it together on the fold, capiche? (If I could post a pic I would but need instruction on that :S)

So, it's a hybrid flat fell seam and French seam - a French fell seam p'raps?   8)

For Sale, Wanted & Free to a good home / Re: Juki TL 98P

It’s a straight stitch only but very fast.
Not ideal unfortunately, I have a small machine table and limited space in my sewing hut and I can see myself shifting machines around according to what stitching is required; my old Janome weighs the same as a baby hippo  :loveit:

@Efemera tell me about it. How long you had it, is it a 'friendly' machine, why you selling, how much you want?
