Works in progress this week
Clock Walking Skirt
I have really enjoyed wearing my Spool skirt, the short version of the historical fantail skirt by Scroop Patterns. So I decided to make the the long version too. I keep thinking that I will make clothes in respectable wool and demure colors and then I see fabric like this with all the clocks on it. How could I pass that up?
Spool Skirt Remake
Speaking of the spool skirt… after working on the long version with interlining, I really liked the weight of the skirt. I decided to pick apart the spool skirt and interline it as well. This was also a good time to increase the size of the waistband to match my current waist.
I’ve been wanting to try needle felting, but couldn’t justify another craft. Well… someone at work mentioned that their son wanted a pug. They also mentioned that they were not going to get said pug. When I stumbled across the Pugsly needle felting kit, I just couldn’t pass it up. Currently it looks like a potato with legs.
In the process of tidying up the cabbage patch, I came across left over mattress ticking in 2 colors. I also have a dolly crib without a mattress. This seemed like the natural next step. Am I wrong?
Flower of the Month Quilt
A small amount of progress was made on this project because I had forgotten to bring the Bees dress to work with me. But hey, progress is progress.
Bees in the Thistles
This Bees in the Thistles dress (#2) is going to be an Easter dress for the lucky recipient.
