Yeah, I know it's Tuesday, but I figured I'd show you what I made on Monday. It's actually something that I started this last weekend and finished up yesterday.
Sorry about the fuzzy picture, that girl would not hold still for me. I created my own pattern for this skirt (expect to see it in my shop soon). It has a ribbed waist and a fun ruffle. I can't remember exactly the name of the yarn but it is from Knit Picks. It is so soft and I love the color changes.
Well, that was Monday, what shall I work on today?

The only time I get to doing any cutting or ironing is at night while the kids are sleeping. Well, I can cut fabric when J is awake, and sometimes he'll let me iron. Most of the time his 3 year old hands are just too curious for me to do any work with hot stuff. Last night I cut out and fused the interfacing on for three new clutches. I really like how this one turned out:
I added a little embellishment to the fabric. I'm hoping to get these sewn up and in my shop by the end of the week.

I've fiddled with embroidery before, but lately I'm wanting to pick it up again. I found this Kanji print fabric at Jo-Ann's the other day and just had to pick some up (for my Japan-loving nephew). I decided to try to make it into a clutch using a pattern by Keyka Lou. Here it is:
It's up in my shop.
