Man oh man...where did my sewing mojo go? in the spring I made a ton of costumes for the local theatre then nothing. Nothing inspired me. I spent the past week purging my studio of fabric, junk and trash. Everything is ship shape. I felt rusty so I made a simple pj from the softest fabric ever from Denver Fabric. No pattern necessary for something so basic. Now...what kept me up last night?

I purchased some fabric crayons at the Sewing Festival a few weeks ago, drew my sisters face and then this collage evolved. I've had a lot of fun making this, using all my machines including the embellisher. Sue played Cinderella in a musical years ago and she is well known for her performance. If you look closely Cinderella and the fairy godmother are in the collage. I have NO idea how to finish this now...I've never made a binding! Help suggestions?

This green pillow in Lauren's room was rather dull so I used my handy dandy seam ripper to take it apart. I used Microsoft word to find a cute font and printed out the letter. The fonts drop down menu will go 72 I believe, but if you type in for example 300 or 500 it will re size the letter. I used a blanket stitch and walla...a jazzy pillow for Lauren's bed.
The pattern is by Indigo Junction and is called the serged satchel. I found the directions to be Horrible with a capital H! I took me about 18+ hours to sew/serge and cost me approx $60.00. I doubt I'll make this again but it did turn out cute. Lauren thinks it is fantastic!
