Very excited to share that I have a few new fabrics available over at spoonflower, they're variations of my circle logo, without text of course1. I'm excited to order some for another archer shirt! or maybe a skirt!
Check out my store here.
oh man I forgot Spoonflower actually made things....some sheets would be so fun!
From time to time I enjoy sewing, I recently finished a few projects that I'm pretty proud of.
This is an Archer Button up, from Grainline Studios, it's my first one and definitely won't be my last. I saw this fabric on Mood's website abd fell in love with it. Its a lightweight cotton voile, love it so much!
This next piece features fabric from Mood, its a heavyweight wool knit. The pattern is called Arare from Waffle Patterns in Japan. This fabric proved challenging just in the sheer thickness, my home machine had a rough go of it.
Made my first Linden sweatshirt! I have been wanting to try this pattern for a very long time and purchased it last year. I am getting into hunting and have not been too pleased with the selection for women, which means it's a perfect way to get some sewing in!
This is a very quick sew, especially if you're using a projector. I had it cut and sewn up in about two hours. Here is the pattern if you're interested. The fabric is from ebay, we have a pretty horrible local selection of apparel fabrics, even before covid.
Working on a waxed canvas vest for my husband. Love these welt pockets, my official second welt pocket ever! I love how it has the extra fold added, the instructions for this confused me at first, but after messing with the fabric I was able to get my head wrapped around it.
Those are residual chalk marks on the fabric.
This vest is to replace his old vest he refers to as 'big puffy'. Its an old camo puffer vest from Old Navy that is faded and threadbare. I'm actually surprised it's lasted as long as it has, I wouldn't say Old Navy is of superior quality. He is the kind of guy that doesn't run out an buy something new every season, or even when trends change. If that piece serves a purpose, he'll use it until it's done. I hope this new vest lasts longer than the Old Navy one, maybe even be passed down to future offspring!?! I love that by making it by hand you can choose the fabrics, insulation weights, thread and stitch! It's definitely not fast fashion!
This vest is a nice waxed canvas from Big Duck Canvas, a basic taffeta lining ( I don't remember where I got this, but it's a very common fabric), using Gutterman thread, my favorite and lined with 210g 3M Thinsulate from Seattle Fabrics. I love Seattle fabrics so much. Pattern is From Leayla Jane, it's the William Vest.
