Peasant Shirt and Fabric Journal

Men's peasant shirt number one: Sewed sleeves to front and back of shirt. Gathered the shoulder line for the yoke. Ironed on interfacing to cuffs, neck facing, and the collar.

Fabric Wedding Journal needs to be finished today. I worked on it about an hour last night and added a row of fringe.

Knitted Ruffle Scarf

Purple Knitted Ruffle Scarf
I started this one at the Amtrak 100. It's stuck in a bag somewhere. That's why I put things in this blog. So I don't forget all about them.

Beaded Brick Stitch Feather Earrings

Feather Shaped Earrings:
I've finished the first earring prototype. I've redrawn the pattern and I've ordered Delica beads for the improved version. But I still want to duplicate the first earrings so that I have a pair. I'm happy that the way I thought those earrings were made might actually be correct. I took an educated guess and I think it's right.

Men's Peasant Shirt
I just cut out the first shirt out of natural colored linen.

Diane's Wedding Journal

Making a fabric wedding journal for Diane and Gary.
Update: They loved it.

Fabric Banners

I'm developing an idea for fabric banners.  The first one will say Welcome. Each letter will cost $22. It will be of a fabric pillow design with tassels and bells.
