Still sewing Face Masks

This is the style I Made

Cut out 14 and seamed the front of the mask... l here are the supplies- fabric I had for the backing of the cat quilt I was making... so they all have cats and kitties on the front....

I will double case the wire, unless I finds something else bendable for the nose top

I had some striped pima shirting cotton on hand for the lining pocket

The above link gives the pdf pattern I used and I improvised as  I found what worked best for me.

REPOST For Pattern buyer August 3 2019

I am cutting this out and then I can whip it together and wear it tomorrow....Beautiful colors.

Very light and airy material

How great is this? Flowy Dress and a Golden Yellow matches better than you can tell in the picture for a Crepe Chiffon Flowy jacket to go with it.... and I probably with combine a Royal Blue and a yellow scarf to hang on the sides for accent on the jacket.... OOOOOH.... fun.....

Note Earrings are on the scarf
So far, two scarves - one dress material- one blue jacket lace scarf with scallops on the end...and there will be one yellow one and a yellow jacket the same yellow as in the dress.

This jacket was made by folding the material and cutting a neckline, and sleeve holds, adding sleeves so scallops are on the end of the sleeves and cutting the jacket body so the scallops were on the bottom.  This piece of lace had an extra piece with scallops on the end, so I cut a strip like you would a kimono and folded it so it would be top stitched on the end.  Before work I will have 4 pairs of earrings, 1 pair matching the dress material, 1 pair matching this blue jacket and 1 pair matching the yellow jacket, plus 1 pair combining the blue lace over the yellow jacket material, and two jackets to choose from- a blue lace and a yellow jacket.  The top of the blue jacket is just folded over lace over the raw edge to give it the finished look.

Finished and wore to work!

I have some comfy cotton knit in my stash:

Remember you can still order online from
25% off and maybe a 10 or 20 $ coupon if you are over 50 or 100 after the 25% off.  Check the site...

Remember my old vintage patterns may still be available from Etsy sellers or Ebay, so just search for the vender and number and say sewing pattern  and whoever has it will come up!

Chose Patterns:  Simplicity 8022 1 piece pants pattern and NEW LOOK 6086..another easy top pattern I had on my shelf

I used some white twill tape I had on the table for the drawstring-- I only needed 1 1/4 yards of 60 inch wide for the pants....2 5/8 does both the view E undershirt and the View C over shirt  ---  Just under 4 yards for this comfy PJ outfit....


The fabric is so soft...since I am not working at G Street Fabrics anymore... I have to be comfy in front of my sewing machine, laptop and camera... ETSY SHOP

I made View C and made bias out of the same fabric for the neck, and view E for an undershirt of the same cotton knit fabric.... These are sooooo comfy... I am sure to get a lot of work done with my backup of coffee.... You know how I love the coffee fuel......Here I am in all my comfyness.... But I will still ride my exercise bike and drink my very large bottle of water while I ride it and use my shake weights routine while I ride...  Tomorrows plan... is Friday kayaking.... hmmmmm I can't wait.

See I have the view E as a T shirt under the Top View C over the drawstring pants..... That's your challenge

Yes, girls!  I did cut 4 inches off my hair.... just getting comfy..

I am going to go Ride the Bike-Drink Water-  Then put some outfits on Etsy and drink Coffee.... then work on my quilt and maybe do a pre cut package so STAY TUNED  for 


KittysCustomOutfits shop

If you like to quilt -  I will also put some pre-cut quilt packages in the shop... be ready for sewing made easy.
