I made this pattern yesterday:
From this incredibly cool material:
That I purchased for $3.00 in the remnant bin at Hobby Lobby. 2 2/3 yd. for $3 is a great deal in anyone's book. :::Grin:::
I'm "biased" because I like this pattern much better than the plain tank I showed you yesterday. This has a bias binding for the armscye that really fits well and gives the armhole...well....give! I'm almost finished with it, I just need to do a couple more seams. I wanted it to fit with ease so I made a size larger than I am and I need to tweak it just a bit. I need to rip the side seams and add a little shaping so it doesn't look so boxy. Then I'll do the hem and add a couple of side slits since I love me some hip room. :::wink:::
I'll show it off tomorrow. :)
I made this yesterday -
And I would have a tea cozy to match, except that I've been sidetracked by this:
I'm hooked on the series. It's smart, fast-paced, sexy and well-written. I'm liking this book so much it's hard for me to put down and that tells you something. :) It's the "Rachel Morgan" series and the first book is Dead Witch Walking. For A Few Demons More is the 5th in the series.
Long may she write. ::Grin:::
I wanted to show you this, another remnant I picked up. Wouldn't it be perfect with that striped button?
I really, really wanted to make that crossover blouse with this and use the button as a decoration on the side but alas, there's only 2 yd., just about 1/4 yd. short. But now that I have it in my head, I'll have to find something to make with it!
Tomorrow: Aquarium pics, blouse pics & tea cozy pics. The excitement just keeps building around here. ::wink:::
