BurdaStyle & my Clover Tracing Wheel

Today I managed to complete my grey skirt I cut out nearly 2 weeks ago, but I will post that tomorrow with some pictures.

My last post showed a number of items from the BurdaStyle Magazine for February that I loved, and I wanted to cut out something quick that I could run up tomorrow before lunch so decided on
this simple little top 02/2013/127.



A few weeks back I told you about my new little tool, the Clover Double Tracing Wheel, and this was the first chance that I had to try it out.  I thought I would do a quick little video clip for you to see how easy it is.  




Someone, somewhere in a blog mentioned using the sewing machine to stitch around the pattern piece and then tearing away the extra paper where the machine had perforated it, but I actually found the double tracing wheel easier (I tried both ways).

Tomorrow I need an early start to finish my top which I have cut out in a nice baby blue cotton jersey,  before the kids turn up for lunch, but I hope to show you the completed top with my skirt.

Hope you have had a good weekend.  Catch you later.............

  1. The top you chose is so cute - something a little different for a top and very stylish. Can't see your video, though - When I try to view it, it says it's private.
