  1. Just remember the knit needs to have horizontal stretch or you will not get it over your head. Lisa
  2. Here are the pics...tonight is Date Night, so I need one to go into the restaurant. Lisa
  3. Basically, it's a 19"x19" square piece of knit fabric that you serge or zig zag stitch into a tube. I just wear it around my neck when I don't need a face covering and pull it up when I do. I have used them when rowing in the winter to protect my face. I will take a few selfies and post. Lisa
  4. I have been officing from home since March 16th. I will be back in the office every other week starting June 8th. This week I decided to search my scraps and make coordinating neck gaiters. I will be styling at the office. Lisa
  5. I booked with the offer on Wednesday, and yes, $200pp plus port, fees, and taxes due at the time of booking. We booked the Nieuw Amsterdam for Feb 2021. We did the free inside and did not upgrade. I am fine taking the risk with a guarantee inside.
  6. I decided to take tote bags using an old Holland America canvas bag for the pocket. I made one for my sister, and am starting mine today. I started off deconstructing the HAL bag, then dying it. I dyed Stacy’s orange, and will dye mine fushia. I made sure to serge the edges before dying to minimize the fraying. I really liked how Stacy’s came out. Lisa
  7. I drafted the pattern and made the dress. I am very happy at how it came out. I spent yesterday sewing another dress from that pattern. Still have to hem it, but it should be finished sometime this week. Lisa
  8. Hey Gang! I have been crazy busy with work the last two months, and forgot to check in the sewing board. I have been working from home since Mid-March and I work for a janitorial supply company. I am very grateful that we are considered essential. Anyway, besides making masks, I have been taking online classes at Sew-it-Academy with Mimi G. I am learning how to draft patterns. So here are a few of my masks (Walt is high risk so he gets to go for car rides and stays in the car while I shop or take Fargo to the vet) and a dress that I drafted. Lisa
  9. Happy New Year to my fellow seamstresses! ❤️❤️❤️
  10. I tried something new today! I used stretch lace to make a pencil skirt. I have never worked with lace, but I had a vision when I saw this one at Hobby Lobby. So, I bought a yard for $5. I lined it with nude swim lining that I had in my stash and did the waist band out of leftover black ponte knit from a previous sew. I still have to hem it, but I am very pleased with the look and fit. The lace is on the heavy side, so the swim lining kept it from being ridiculously heavy. Lisa
  11. What is everyone sewing this month? I finished up the Christmas gifts with bowl cozies that are microwave safe and 11” Christmas Trees. Now it’s on to sewing skirts for my cruise next month. Lisa
  12. This is the free pattern I used for the scarves. I adjusted the pocket size to accommodate large cell phones. There is a video at the bottom that shows how to sew this one and turn it right side out. https://www.patternsforpirates.com/product/free-pocket-infinity-scarf/ Lisa
  13. The alternate fabric is an 8 inch x 8 inch pocket. The scarf is not fully lined.
  14. Exactly that! And I am making them as Christmas gifts. Here are some that I made last weekend. Lisa
  15. Oh yes, the water was cold and the air temperature was around 50 degrees with 15mph wind. Breezy and Chilly. Morning races were in the upper 20's, so really happy we raced at 6:10pm. My clothes were soaked, so once we got the boat put up I stripped down to my sports bra and panties to put on sweats. Brrr...Hannah was a little surprised that I got changed in front of everyone. I was frozen and didn't care. Current project is flannel infinity scarves with 8inch zipper pockets. Yes, I am trying my hand at wovens. 😲 Lisa
