05/04/20 What I’ve been making

05/04/20 – With so much going on, I appreciate being able to jump between projects depending on my mood. Here’s a look at what I’ve been making lately.

MeMadeMay2020

It’s MeMadeMay, which means it’s also a great time to scope out some good garments that people have been sewing up. (So inspiring!) For me, I’ll be making an effort to share some of my handmade wearables, and here’s one of them. This t-shirt is a new favorite. It started as something else long ago that didn’t work out and has sat in my sewing room ever since. I finally dusted it off and re-cut it into a t-shirt. Pattern is the Jeanne T-Shirt by Ready To Sew. I’m such a fan of this pattern. There are no modifications except that I left off the pocket, and the fabric is from my Blake collection.

TP

#FreshlyQuiltedTP

Yes, that is toilet paper. If you haven’t heard, @elisabew and I have been hosting a TP quilt along using Java House Quilt’s We’re On a Bigger Roll pattern (deadline is extended to 5/15/20). This has been a low-stress, fun project that has sparked plenty of creativity for me. That’s what a challenge can do sometimes! It can help you think outside of your own box.

Some of my fabric TP is up there, and a bit of my background is below. I’m going a little wild in my background by doing a mashup of some of my own designs–many of which have reminded me of bathroom tiles. This seemed like the perfect way to use them.

I’m pretty sure I’ll continue with this theme in some more sewing projects to come…

Everglade

Finally, my scrappy Everglade project (using my Everglade pattern) continues to grow!

More blocks are being added to the party. The color, fabrics and slowness of this are ticking all of the boxes for me.

    Wow, really loving the colours in your scrappy Everglade project, really love seeing these blocks come together. It really is amazing how much that Everglade block does look like a bathroom tile!
    Enjoy the upcoming weekend. Take care and thanks again for all the inspiration.
