I love a bargain, or trying to create something out of nothing (something I picked up from my thrifty mother).
I have my chickens and my kitchen garden, both of these provide produce for my love of cooking.
Basically, if you can sew it, make, grow it or cook it you have come to the right place.
Follow me on my sewing/growing/cooking and making adventures together with some of life’s daily trials and tribulations.
Well I managed to finish Mike's shirt tonight and he'll be wearing it for work tomorrow.
Quick recap on stats:-
Kwik Sew 3883
added a collar stay
replaced normal cuff with French cuff by copying a RTW shirt that he likes
embroidered monogram on cuff
This is a TNT pattern for Mike's shirt. He doesn't like front pockets so I leave them off (one less job to do).
This is the first shirt that I have made my husband ha ha, made quite a few for my partner last year.
I have ordered a flat fell foot for my Viking machine, however I did manage ok just doing it manually. I sewed the seams wrong-sides together. Cut the back seam allowance down by half, then wrapped the uncut seam allowance over the cut one, stitching close to the folded edge.
This method takes a little more time, but does the job.
I brought my new PJ set to the Flat in London, so I may run up another 3pc set to wear at the cottage before I think about another project that may use a few more of my grey cells.
Thanks for stopping by - catch you later.................
