the best mail day
Yesterday was a good mail day! I received all of the sewing supplies I've recently ordered on the same day...it felt a little like a second Christmas morning. I got:
- 40 yards of underwear elastic in 4 different styles from Porcelynne's Lingerie & Sewing Supplies. The selection available is amazing! It was hard to narrow it down to four, but if I have great success then I'll get more.
- 1" bias tape maker by Clover. I can't wait to make my own bias tape! I'm tired of the poor selection of pre-made bias tapes. If you sew, you know what I mean.
- Dritz 45 mm rotary cutter. I have plans for quilting, and having a rotary cutter will also make cutting strips for bias tape much easier. Imagine a pizza cutter for fabric...much easier for cutting straight lines than using scissors!
- Two vintage patterns from BN Vintage. One is a blouse and the other is a skirt. I'm really excited about the blouse pattern and it will be one of my next projects.
I've been working on my mustard yellow a-line skirt little by little the past three days and am almost finished. I've had a lot of freelance work which has kept me from finishing it, but I'll take more custom design work any day of the week, so no complaints here!
