Planning for Next Project

I already posted my sewing goals for 2013, and included this picture:

I have finished three of the eight proposed projects:
  • Cute little purse project - done (click here)
  • Big purse project (I totally missed the time frame for the purse contest at PatternReview)
  • Tiramisu dress
  • Knit top with twist at waist
  • Knit top with mock twist

  • Covers and liners for the cushion for DH's desk chair - done (click here)
  • Crazy-print pillowcases - done (click here)
  • Scarves for draping over clothes


My next project will be a knit top using Butterick 5495 and this printed knit fabric.  The plain fabric is a stretch woven twill which will become a skirt with just a little twirl:

I will get around to it soon!

Sewing Room Takeover

After I finished sewing the latest pillowcases, I turned over the cutting table my hubby so he could build his new computer.

Here are two pictures from Friday night:


Here are two pictures from Saturday night:


His new computer is super-fast, and he likes it!

I think I will get my cutting table back in a day or two.

This tutorial is to make standard sized pillowcases, and uses a serger and a sewing machine:















Also look in the tutorials for how to dress a pillow so the pillowcase will not fall off:
