Everyone keeps asking me for details.. We now have classes starting in beginner on Line
Click on Classes at the top Banner of
This was a simple sweatshirt jacket and a simple cotton shirtwaist.
I do work at G Street Fabrics. I do make everything I wear and all my gifts. People ask if I do classes..No I am not technically a teacher and have never taken classes myself... But if I can do it you can. SEW, take the classes at G Street on line and you will learn many detailed how to do it right things...
I also am blogging 2 new blogs to show you step by step sewing.
Showing you details of the things I wear and carry and live with.
The first of this semi-teaching series of only simple things is
A Tote Bag - using Gstreets vinyl and Upholstery Flat Folds at only 7.97 a yard. You can make 2.
The next on this beginner blog is pillows with invisible zipper but will explain the other types of toss pillows
The second blog of this series are a little more difficult - more intermediate.
SewmorewithKitty and it will have sewing in multiples and making reversible things... different things that you might think difficult, but will see with me that they are all pretty simple, but takes time.
These will be more clothing.

Original facemask pattern pdf
I am tired of them, but I wear them everyday when I am not at home and I DONOT take them off in public to blow my nose ewwww germs... cough....ewwww germs... PEOPLE remember what the facemasks are for... anyway.
I find that if I put both elastic at the ears and a nose insert, plus a neck hanger, I can wear the mask comfortably without taking it off all day.. The neck hanger, tightener will keep the mask on my face correctly if for some reason the elastics are bothering my ears. I have both kinds of elastics.. the tiny lightweight cord with adjusters and some with the 3 inch loop. Next to the ear elastic casings, I have a second casing for the neck hanger. If you want one I do sell them on etsy so you can copy my style... The filter pocket is double 200ct muslin. Soft against the face but makes the mask 3 layers without adding a filter.

This is the back of the Jacket with the sleeves laying against it so I can see how that combo will look
I have a scarf I love to wear, because it is sooo soft and warm..
This is side one... I made two coats by sewing the scraps together... improvised on the pattern, because I didn't have enough of any one fabric to complete as it was on the pattern...I love this coat... it is lightweight and I can wear either side..
Still had some leftovers and an old purse that I was going to throw away... took all the rings and zippers off of it and made this purse.. totally lined and top zip plus middle zip on both sides... left over pleather made the strapping. The top side panel is a kayaking sunrise printed on a velvet, I had left over from some pillows, shown below.
The problem is the chairs are beckoning me to sit on them and then I take a break and don't get anything done!....
