Add a Drapeneck Blouse



Still Got some material?  I do
added drapeneck blouse to Pilazzo Pants  or Tubins and a couple of scarves from leftovers... and dodads to earrings.


Quick... Chop Chop... Front Back Facing Sleeves... sew sleeves..and hem... iron interfacing to back facing... sew onto back piece...sew front to back and hem bottom...sew in sleeves...done.... extra fabric still?  sew a couple of scarves..
Put in your matching earrings that match your pants...throw on your blouse... pull on your pants.. grab a freeflowing jacket and throw the scarves over your neck and go to work... Oh yeah...get to work and grab some glitzzy sequined appliques... sew them together and take your leftover button shanks bend with needlenose pliers and slide onto earring backs to look like a dancing queen...LOL... well not quite..maybe if you added a tiara

20 minute pants... Tubins- use a leggin pattern and widen the legs to be a little more grown up... and add a scarf to your drape neck shirt... and how about a flowy jacket.... You GO GIRLS!!


Jacket-shortened 6 inches for my pants outfits-No interfacings and only front - back and sleeves... DONE



One piece pattern- elastic waist, just widen the legs for the more professional look and to fit over your boot tops in the winter but still pencil legs....quick and easy..



Scarves if any style out of your leftovers add custom look!


Make matching earrings by covering buttons and gluing an earring back on and voila -you are so custom!

Fabulous Faux Fur

I will admit These did not come from the "Treasure Hunt" Room,

Remember we have the HOLIDAY SALE until New Years...
And when there is a coupon..Thursday through Mondays... if there is a coupon, it is 25% off and then the coupon.. 20 or 30%


I hate to be cold.... SOOOO I deserved this

Adding Tubs of Fur as Muff  Pockets on the front and So delectible and Reversible too or just a long fur scarf with pockets on the ends to slide your hands into more fur!


These muff pockets will be Black double sided Minkie


Pretty Sure I am Not Going to be Cold This Year...LOL

Adding Fur Pockets at the Side Seams Right NOW on both sides ... Soooo soft and Fabulous!!!  I used this pattern below and after making the tweed/sherpa coat added the fur sewn on one edge and flipped and hand sewn.

Three Quarters of a yard of fur did this border around the bottom and edging around the coat and sleeves

If you want a separate muffler scarf or big pockets you need an additional quarter yard.... sooo One full yard of fur.

The jacket itself takes 1 and 1/2 to 2 and 1/2 depending on your size and with 60 inch fabric.  There was only a small piece left so I had to improvise to get the coat I wanted.

Handwork on Pug Quillow

YES, I am finishing the Pug Quillow...I put off the handwork

I cannot put it off any longer... It is cold out





Can you tell the Pugs are Three Dimensional?.... so I am hand quilting each block  then free motion outline quilting each pug--before I do stitch in the ditch through the whole sandwich - The back is Minky








I am Not Stopping except to go to work until I
am done with this one!!






This is my new freemotion quilting foot to use with templates between the blocks
My machine is over 20 years old, but it is fabulous to me--Just think what YOU could do with a New Bernina or Brother That practically sews and embroiders without you!!!


Quillow Went home with the new Owner


Two squares left to make a pillow for Christmas


And the pillow is now done for Christmas present... One side Soccer and one side Motorcycle pugs

Christmas Past

Well time to think of what to make everyone for Christmas
There was this Nuno Felting Christmas

Bought some  Silk from G Street and Merino Wool and Silk fibers are rolled into the silk scarf by wetting and using a Bubble Wrap sandwich between the dowel I rolled with and the wetted fibers on silk- They wore them at least once...hahaha- Merry Christmas laughing


Purple Nuno Felted Scarf

Blue Nuno Felted Scarf


This was a Green Nuno Felted Scarf

This was one in the process of drying on a hanger
