We’ve got a long weekend coming up but my sewing to do list is short. I am so ready to clear the sewing deck:
1. Make this knit dress for the wife of a friend. He’s paying me and I promised it back in November. They are going to Belize at the end of the week so I’ve gotta get on the stick. Saturday.
2. The blasted jacket. Lining is in. Just need to handsew on the pockets, add the collar and do the whole button thing. Sunday.
3. The Weekender Bag. Need to get interfacing and new piping. Monday. I love a holiday weekend.
4. I’m going to Portland for PR Weekend! I’ve made one trip ever to the west coast and that was for last year’s PR Weekend.
So, next month, PatternReview.com is holding a new contest: Hat Making / Sewn Hats. I thought I would show some of the patterns I’ve collected over the years. I plan on entering the contest. I would love a grand hat to wear to the Preakness in May! Click on any to enlarge.
