Made a couple of shirts from a free pattern from the I am working on sewing up some o choice pieces that I have saved and need to get them used up. That is what the pandemic has got me doing.
This one is from some Japanese Fabric.

This one is from some old Japanese Kimonos.

Made my own bias tape.

 My sister-in-law embroidered this piece that I thought looked really nice on the back of the shirt.

Transformer Jacket


I think this jacket is so cool. It is made with a back pack inside of the jacket. You can put the jacket into the back of the jacket and it becomes a back pack. It has a place for a water bottle too. The pattern is a downloadable from Elle and Mac.

Felted Hat

This ia one of the projects that I worked on this stay at home time. I hadn't knitted for awhile and it was good to get back into it.
In PenWAG I took a workshop from Sue Keys and we made a silk hand dyed ribbon crimping arrangement. It worked out to compliment this hat very nicely.
 It is a nice and warm hat too. I am looking forward to wearing it this winter.

Shirt Top

 Used some of my dyed fabrics and some commercial fabrics for this shirt.
 I used some muslin behind to anchor the pieced sections of this shirt.

 This one I used some linen that I got from They have some really nice linens. They have several free patterns that you can download, if you buy some fabric there.

Really happy with the pattern and the linen fabric that I used for this shirt.

Sewing Workshop Splice Top

 I enjoyed doing this one as you can see. I had some real nice pieces of fabric that I had saved and it was time to use them.
 This is silk from a kimono.
 The sides are a good coordinate from another kimono.
 This was a few pieces from a wedding kimono.

 This was silk from my dyed fabrics.

 This was a hand dyed that I did from linen from an old kimono.
I made the sleeves wider and I did a full bust adjustment to the pattern.

Cropped Pants

 I love how these pants turned out. They are easy to make. I made a black linen pair too. I know I will be making more pairs.
 The pattern said to hem 4" above the ankle. The picture doesn't show it that well, but they do look cropped. On my black pair I made them shorter because I didn't have enough fabric and they look good too.
 I wanted you to see the tucks and pockets.
The fabric is linen from Marcy Tilton.
