Letty Gomez and her daughters Marisa and Dani joined myself and my daughters Teresa and Becca for a Mother Daughter Craft & Sewing Slumber Party. Each of the girls bring their own special talents to the table and we made eco friendly table napkins, Easter baskets, and designer scarfs. It was a wonderful evening filled with food, fun and friends.

Stitch Magazine - Apron Pattern

Posted by PicasaI found a new magazine, at least new to me, Stitch. I don't know about anyone else, but there just isn't a very large selection of sewing magazines that have to do with general sewing with different projects etc. There seem to be lots of quilting magazines out there so I was excited when I ran across this issue. Included in the magazine are full size patterns as well. This particular pattern was not included in the full size patterns, but it gave directions for cutting it out by measurements. It was challenging and once it was cut out I put it up to me and it was very long, so I cut off 6 inches along the hem line so that it was shorter. I also installed a wide curved pocket and added bias tape to the upper edge of it. I sewed the pocket down the middle creating two pockets.
