This week I’ve been hashing out details of a future pattern, but I did take some time last night to start a new fabric weave. I’ve been wanting to try a tumbling block design that I’ve seen from my friend Tara, but because I can’t leave well enough alone, I decided I want to do  mini version of the design. This is 1/4 inch bias tape, and I’ll be using the weave panel to (hopefully) make a pin cushion.

I did a little fabric purchasing this week- most of it for my upcoming giveaway this Friday, but I did also get this adorable polka dot from Rifle Paper Co. My daughter likes to make bow ties for herself and her friends, and she thought this fabric would be perfect for a new bow tie. I agree with her!

Lastly, a not-as fun project. This is the current state of my pressing board….. ewww.  I have GOT to recover this ASAP. It’s getting embarrassing.  I just put in new curtains under the counter top in my studio, so I’ll be recovering this in matching fabric.

So what’s up in your world this Wednesday?

Happy Sewing, ~L

  1. What a tiny micro-weave you are going for. I look forward to seeing how it comes together. And I totally can relate to having an ironing board that is long past due for being recovered. I know it isn’t the most fun, but maybe one of the more satisfying things to finish!
