I bought a few new girls dress patterns last week.  I found them on site I found while searching for german interfacing.  German interfacing is a fusible cotton batiste used with heirloom sewing.   The website was Farm House Fabrics.   They had the german interfacing and lots of patterns.  One designer I really liked was  Olabelhe.  I ordered several of her patterns and I finished the pattern called Lindsey’s dress today.  I had enough material left over to make a similar but much smaller one for Ella.

Last week at the Trenton, Quilt and Sew we made aprons.  I love going to class!  You can learn something new no matter how long you have been sewing.  We zig-zagged over fishing line to pull the ruffle for the bottom of the apron.  It is reversable and very cute!

I have finish another purse.  yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

This one is a Moon Shine Designs purse called the Paddington Satchel.  I made it with Moda fabric from the Sonnect collection. 

I learned several things making this one.  That when a pattern calls for rigilene (or they spelled it rigiline)  it is polyester corset boning.  It was used around the top of the bag to give the opening some stiffness so it stays open.  It works really great! – but you need a machine with some power and ability to go through really thick spots.   Also for the piping I used (believe it or not) weed eater line instead of nylon piping.   lol  It gave it a bit of extra pop and stiffness to the piping and worked really well.
