It has been a very busy summer!


Although I have been “silent” the past few months I have been very busy. Safiyah spent a little time with us this summer and needless to say we are not as young as we used to be.

The vest is one of many things we worked on together, but I think this is her favorite. I almost couldn’t get her out of it.

The pattern is McMall’s 6640. Sherpa is the suggested fabric but we found a remnant piece of denim that I had purchased for my class “Jean-ius” (more in that later) from Moods Fabric and the denim won. Several modifications had to be made with the construction but they added a special touch. We also made the T-shirt from the same pattern. It wasn’t quite to either of our liking so I don’t think she’ll get much wear out of it.

This time around Safiyah did a lot of the sewing herself. She is becoming quite the sewer. I can see her patience is lasting a few seconds longer this time around.
