McCall’s M7324: Part II of my Adventures with Border Print Fabric!

This is the last of my lovely denim border print fabric.  🙁 I've already made a pair of summer cropped pants with it, details here.  I had just enough left to squeeze a top out of it!   I decided to use this pattern, McCall's M7324, view A.  I definitely won't be using the curved… Continue reading McCall’s M7324: Part II of my Adventures with Border Print Fabric!

Back again! Are you bored with me yet?

That's good, because it looks like I'm only getting started ... seems like I have been bitten by the "bag bug" and have made another.  My sister gave me a box of upholstery fabric (the cat "Sophie" is all mine) and I made my first bag with fabrics from it, my tote bag, which I… Continue reading Back again!
