Sew My Stash Sunday – 13

Leave a comment

The black lawn to line the yoke of the blouse has been bought, cut out and pinned to the yoke pieces.  That is where the sewing stopped for this week.  A birthday celebration and houseguests, including grandchildren put paid to any more sewing.

However, there has been some activity in the sewing room.

I found a use for this set of mini-drawers which came from my mother.  They are now on my sewing table and contain various small sewing items.

2015-04-12 02Finally, I did do some fabric work this afternoon, although it was not strictly sewing.  I started cutting some old t-shirts that i got on Freecycle into strips.  My plan is to make a plaited floor rug like this.

I have plaited this piece which is about 8 metres in length, so far.  I will need quite a bit more before I have enough so keep watching for the finished article.

2015-04-12 03The stash has grown rather than shrunk this week as I was given some fabric by a work colleague.  More about that another time.
