Catching Up – Sewing For The Cats

A Finish!, Crafting, Sewing, Sewing For The Cats October 20, 2017

A while back JoAnn Fabrics had fleece on sale for $2.99 a yard. Since we’ve had these unsightly, old, nearly worn through cat window seat covers that I’d been promising to replace with new ones – for years – I decided to purchase a couple of yards of jungle print fleece and make the cats some new window seat covers. As you can see from the picture, Oz really approved of my fabric choice.

Another Little Girl’s Top Finished

A Finish!, Clothes Sewing, Crafting, Donation Crafting, Items For Pine Ridge, Sewing May 27, 2017

I actually finished this little top a couple of weeks ago but have been scrambling and hadn’t had a chance to blog about it. It’s made from the same See & Sew (Butterick) pattern (B5442) that I used to make the first little girl’s top that I made with this pattern. The part I found most difficult (and it isn’t that difficult) about this pattern was gathering the ruffle at the bottom. But then I bumped into a video on YouTube (one of my favorite places on the web for learning new things). The video showed a nifty new (to me anyway) product that you can use to quickly create ruffles and gathers.
