New Idea

I have an idea for a car garbage bag. It's been rolling around in my head or awhile now. Everybody's front seat is shaped differently, and I think it will be pretty easy to plan a little garbage bag to fit your own car. Pink Chalk Studio brought up the new laminated cotton fabrics, which will be wonderful for this project. It's more up-to-date than the old oilcloth fabric and she gives lots of tips on how to sew with it.

Hunter's Quilt

Here's a peek at the quilt I am starting for Hunter. This panel is being used (scroll down a bit on the web page and you will see it). I will use a black for the background between the panels to make a twin-sized quilt. some yellow for a narrow border and a brown binding.

Grey Skirt

I made this grey skirt from a lightweight knit, and added a light interfacing to the back to give it a better drape. I decided to add side pockets and referred to Sandra Betzina's Power Sewing book for details and was delighted that it doesn't gape open at the side seam. The stitching, which you can see if you enlarge the picture, was just something I added to give it a little interest.
