Finally Sewing

Kinda boring and utilitarian, but still sewing!! 

New Linen shirt. Did some hidden tacking because of MAJOR Gapposis when I sit.
Hubby said I would be making some really good friends if I wore it out. LOL
I don't want those kind of friends.

Lost a button, found the spare, sewed it on,

Little Miss Bella's mom decided that she needed more than three flannel receiving blankets.
G-ma took care of that with:
 5 -  36" square blankies
4- fat quater sized burpie/bed pad sized
1 - over the shoulder
2 - wipey/wash cloth sizes
I used up as much of the flannel as I could so there was very little waste.
I got all this for less than the price of three prepacked 27" sqaure blankies!
Goooooooo grammy!

Guess which fabric was my fave??? 

 Brandi wanted the edges just like the store bought...serged.
Here's how I rounded the corners for a smooth, single stitching line

saucer butted against the edges

 A little rotary action

 Ta daaaa

Working on basting a quilt and then my maxi dress muslin this week. 
Maybe even a case for my new, teeny, tiny camera. It's just a very basic point and shoot, but I can take it anywhere and it doesn't take up a bunch of room. Took the blankie corner pics with it.....I have pretty good luck with canon brand. 
Here's hoping my sewing week stays productive!!!

It was nice to finish something, ya know?


  1. Love that grandma fabric! I've got to make some of these ahead. My stash is getting out of control again. Is there any special serger edge stitch you use? I've only serged inside seams and the edges of my new fabric before washing. That regular stitch on my machine is kinda big and not too attractive.

  2. Quite the finisher there Gramma! Brandi is blessed to have you :)
