I am usually not the kind of blogger to lump my FO’s into one post. Mainly because I love giving each of them their five minutes of fame, but also because I love the personalized comments…hee hee.
However, sewing has led me to produce so many FO’s that blogging them all individually would be either way too cumbersome or rather anticlimactic due to their simplicity. So here are some items, most of which I finished in the great crafting explosion of 2007, that will have to share their moment in the limelight.
First Serged Pillow
I made this pillow in my serger class. The reason this is so memorable is that I learned to thread my machine! This seems to be the stumbling block for serger users so I jumped in with two feet and cut my threads so that I could thread it again in class. I think half the ladies in the class gasped, turned white and started saying prayers for me. In the end, it was pretty straight forward and I am SOOO glad I did it so as to dispel that taboo once and for all.
The Loop Scarf
This sewn scarf was given to a friend for Christmas. I love the colors and the Japanese floral fabric has a wonderful texture to boot! I got the pattern from the Gifts to Make issue of Sew Stylish. The entire project took about 1 hour to complete and it produces such a lovely and sophisticated scarf when worn. Gotta love that.
Pretty Bias Tape Tote
This bag was another Christmas present for a friend. It is the Pretty Bias Tape Tote from Martha Stewart Magazine. It was a pretty simple pattern that I made a few modifications to:
- added interfaced and lined to all the pieces including the straps
- added a magnetic closure
- didn’t stitch through the top pocket
Other than that it was pretty darn straight forward.
So that is my FO parade. I think it covers all the items that were collecting cobwebs in the Flickr or pictures queue. Now on to bigger and better things 🙂
