This month’s sponsor is Create Domesticity – $50 gift certificate
Clue for next month:
Many #MeToo bags & carving a rubber stamp for creating craft fair items.
Also: a stretch velour Toaster Sweater by Sew House 7 – both fabric & pattern gifted by Seams fabric. Both are in sale in Sept there.
NYT crossword. Some update logged me out & broke my streak when I logged back in!! I’m so upset!
More work with Creative Hinterland class. I learned how to add ease to a bodice to make it into a jacket! It’s much more involved than simply making another size. The shape of the sleeve cap changes, for example. It’s a way to create ease specifically for wearing over something else, and keep the fit the same.
I love this! It’s a skort, perfect for running, playing pickleball, being comfortable in a short skirt!

What have we done with #pfsewyourstash?
Beverly: I have been using my stash exclusively so far, EXCEPT – I bought some Merchant and Mills cotton jacquard (quilted sort of fabric) for a specific project. It’s ok because I bought it from the store of this month’s sponsor!. I have also been cutting a bunch of scraps to make some quilted fabric or maybe a quilt. For simplicity, I decided to cut them all 5×5 and the little bits that don’t fit I’m tossing. It’s a good thing to do while watching TV (FOOTBALL!)
I also recently reorganized my fabric and I found some that I didn’t know I had!!! I also created a bin for “one yard wonders” – things that I have a larger than ½ yard scrap, but not really enough to make much- Maybe I can use them for an Ogden cami? Not exactly sure what I’m going to do with them, but they have a home for now.
The photo below is not all of the fabric, but it’s my “display fabric”. Ha! I have a bin for rayons and others that are too slinky to stay put on a shelf, denim, double gauze – a few others.
Organized & started planning. I’ve seen mostly stash items this month, including using so many scraps & deep quilting stash for items to sell.
