Yesterday it was pouring rain when I left my house to go back to work after lunch and when I got to work it was dry and sunny. They are only about 5 miles apart so it felt like I had gone on a long trip with the weather changes.
Enough of the weather report Amy Butler has some new patterns out and they are super cute. I am in a bit of a sewing funk right now but I am considering making a comeback to make one of theses adorable rain jackets...
So if you sew with laminated fabric make sure you don't pin outside of the seam allowance because the holes won't come out of the fabric. You could use binder clips or paper clips instead of pins.
I don't have a foot that will allow laminated fabrics to flow through my sewing machine, but I usually keep a piece of ribbon along the foot between it and the fabric to keep the fabric going and it works fine. But with a big project like this I would probably invest in a roller foot.
We are going to Ashville, North Carolina this summer and I've already staked out a fabric store that sells Amy Butler fabric and I've been saving my pennies to buy some new fabric!
I am sort of in a blog funk. I don't really have much to say. Any ideas? Ask or tell me anything!
