It’s been a doll explosion over here for the last month & did you know I've already been asked to do another show in Dec. ? well I thought & I thought about it hummm NO! I never knew how good that word felt lol! seriously we’ve got to get back on track with home repairs  around here plus it gives me a chance to catch up on all that me sewing once I get the sewing room put back together , I have just enough time to catch up on my Monthly Stitch sewing

Current Challenge: November

I have a cape pattern that I want to give a second chance, not that it’s a hard pattern, very easy, goes together pretty quickly but is not forgiving  of the seam ripper, I had made a pink plaid cape last year & ran short on fabric of course Hancock's  was out so I thought  well the only thing to do is piece it in order to finish in time, bad choice, you cans see where it’s piece that’s where the seam ripper became my enemy, I thought  fine I’ll take the band off & add a black one, the seam ripper had other ideas for my cape, needless to say  teddy bears are in it’s future lol!


I love this pattern, it is from the Retro section & very easy to put together just make sure you have enough fabric lol!


maybe I’ll get fancy this go round & add a collar!

How terrible that you didn't have enough fabric to finish the cape..Such pretty fabric..
Proud your getting to do some Me sewing.. I am ready to do that too.. I have been making biblical costumes for churches and schools..Very rewarding, but no time to sew for me.ha
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

How annoying to have a misbehaving seam ripper. Sometimes fabric just wants to be teddybears instead of a real garment. I hope you get to make the cape, the pattern looks lovely.
