Over the past few months, I've done some traveling around and got to spend time with said friends. Back in December, Madalynne had an Open Sew Day where people were able to come in and work on whatever projects they had or to learn how to make one of her bralette or undie patterns. While there, I got to reunite with my friends Jenese, Lauren and Michelle! Speaking of Michelle, she came in with the cutest rolling sewing machine case. Everyone was making googly eyes at it. Imagine my surprise when a couple of weeks later around Christmas time, I got a package with a rolling sewing machine case! I didn't see any note or anything but I did faintly remember her asking me for my address some time before that. I texted her and she fessed up to it. What a SWEET gesture. And the case is the BOMB. It has compartments for just about everything. I can't wait to put it to some travel use!
I started checking out the color coordinated walls of fabric around the room and she let me start pulling fabrics to take with me! It wasn't a free for all but she was MOOORREEE than gracious with what she let me get away with. Immensely gracious. What she did tell me, though, was that when I get to the same point, PASS IT ON. I'm definitely remembering that now and for the future. These are all the pieces I made it out with:
|wool crepes in different colors|
|Vera Wang tweed. For my mom|
|cotton border print|
This last fabric is not from a sewing friend but it was a gift from my aunt! I will be trying to speed sew a Helga out of it... even though it goes against the fabric recommendation... idontcare! idontcare!
|african wax print|
I did also buy some things as well over the past couple of months. Some Independent patterns and some labels from McCall's. I make mostly McCall or Vogue patterns so I only bought those off of their site. They are only one dollar a label and I'm excited to incorporate them in my garments alongside my labels.
That's all I have to say! Next time you see me, I'll be in a fly outfit! (hopefully! haha)
