Sewing Challenges: #So50Visible and #BGchallenge

@sewover50 has been running the #So50Visible Challenge on Instagram and I wasn't too sure if I'd make their deadline of March 15th! And what do you know... I did! And not only did I, but I found out that I could also enter the #BGchallenge (Breaking Ground Challenge)! The aim of #So50Visible is to make… Continue reading Sewing Challenges: #So50Visible and #BGchallenge

McCall’s M7093 – Don’t need buttons for this one …

... and I found the perfect buttons for my last project.  But before I show them to you, let me show you what I made with the remnants of my paisley Topaz knit.  I had some of this lovely fabric - 85% polyester, 10% rayon, 5% spandex - left over, just enough.  I think I have made… Continue reading McCall’s M7093 – Don’t need buttons for this one …
