What could be more unexpected than retitling this post monthly stitch for november: from a sewing book
Am always scouring the library for sewing books, and came across one last month that I had to have my own copy of, although so far I’ve only made 1 item, above. There are a batch of others on the back burner, for when I have time to locate materials.
My second & third makes came from this book, which Samantha of SewinLoveUK told me she’d found in an op shop. It sounded so good I found a copy, and am glad I did. One of the photos with details on how to fringe reminded me of a piece of cotton I’ve had for… 20 years? Only 1 yard, soft enough for a cozy blouse but not enough yardage… what to do? I’ve made 2 scarves from it!
The third make is a variation on the second. Had been wondering what to do with an old autumn skirt that never got much wear, and decided to make a cowl from it, which I also have worn a lot. Had wanted those colours at my face, but not enough yardage for a blouse. The cowl is a perfect solution. And with a bit left over, made a flower.
Have more planned from another book. Meanwhile, happy sewing!
