For some reason going on a sewing related getaway means that I should sew a zillion things for myself including but not limited to:
|Quilted Amy Butler Weekender - it's done!!!|
Weekender (such a big project it will get it's own blog post)
Various zip pouches: Boxed pouches with real
oilcloth laminate fabric this time. I made a couple of these, one for me and one for my new guild friend Judy - she's going to QuiltCon too. It just goes to show that if I write about sewing something on Facebook you should comment saying how useful that item is... I just might make one for you!
The blue and red polka dot
oilcloth laminate fabric is available at The Needle Shop - I've been eyeing it and broke down and bought a quarter yard - since they cut their fabric wide there (my quarter yard was a smidge wider than 11"), I was able to get 4, nearly 5 pouches from the one cut. Not bad... it works out to be about $1 per pouch!
Voile Pillowcase: duh this is totally necessary lol. I crack myself up. I made this with some of the AMH Voile that Shruti sent to me - it's luxurious. I can't wait to use it! Extra bonus, I won't have to worry about my hands / face breaking out from the hotel laundry detergents. :)
|Pillowcase closeup - yes that is a precious bit of Sweetwater in there.for the accent.|
I've considered making a case for my workshop necessities but I just can't decide on a design. I guess it's better off since I'm not planning on checking luggage, I won't be able to carry my scissors or rotary cutter with me on the plane!
I had a lot of fun preparing for this trip, and I'm so excited to leave - I suppose I should just go to bed - my flight leaves in just a few hours!
