I am certainly staying busy. On Male Pattern Boldness, Peter asked whether some of us pre-treat our thread? Oh, please. (but he made me think. that is not a good sign)
So! I am very excited about my sewing plans.
I will be sewing TWO coats in January! Yes, I am preparing for a big coat sewalong with myself. I am sewing this vintage pattern and I decided to sew it in a beautiful dark teal wool. I am saving the novelty coating white & charcoal (from my previous post) for another day.
AND, I am sewing a coat for Kelly, my stepdaughter. She has a coat that dates back to her high school days (a real classic) and she just needs a new one. Easy project because no decisions necessary - I am just going to replicate the existing coat (plus some minor fitting adjustments for her grown-up body).
So, that is why I am pre-treating a whole role of fusible interfacing. The process has actually been pretty painless but, yeah, for a minute I thought, "what the heck have I gotten myself into?" I bought the bolt at JoAnn's at a very low coupon /sale price quite a while back, so I am glad to make use of it.
OK, what else can I stir up around here? I think that is quite enough.
Happy Almost New Year!!
My crystal ball sees a lot of pressing in the near future. And pattern work. I need to prepare both patterns. Yay for 4-day weekends!
