Lunch Date and Crochet Project

Today hubby and I went to see Red Tail, if you have not seen the movie you are missing a treat. It was a great movie.

I started working on a crochet bag. This bag was popular in 2007, and I found the pattern here in 2007. I cannot remember the blog, however I know that blogger live in the middle east and she knit and crochet the most beautiful things by creating her own pattern. The bag measurement is 13-inches wide by 16 inches long. My bag is HUGE, so I checked the instruction and guess what I used a size 5 1/2 crochet needle instead of a size 4 crochet  needle. Oh well, I am going to start all over again. I was hoping to have it done by the end of January. Oh well I am going to start all over again with the correct size needle and hopefully in the next two weeks I will have a finished crochet bag.

I'm glad to hear that the movie was fantastic. I have it on my list to go and see but I haven't been able to get there yet. I saw an interview on OWN with Oprah and George Lucas and it was fantastic. It made me want to see the movie even more.

I can't wait to see your finished crochet bag. I looked at the patter and it looks really pretty with the bobbles.

Done Burda 6727- The Coat

The Amazing Coat Sew Along- The Wearable Muslin I started this coat (wearable muslin) last year as part of the Amazing Coat Sew Along. In the end I got sick with the flu and was unable to meet the deadline. The coat was done, all that was left to do was to hem the coat, add snaps and large button. The alterations to the pattern was documented in my previous post about the coat. Thanks to my sewing sister I worked on the coat last weekend and completed it. I had to wait for my new photographer (daughter) because the hobby was fired. I did a forward thrust shoulder adjustment, and I did not rotate the sleeves cap. The folds in the sleeves were a result of not rotating the sleeves cap. the biceps need mores ease.The armholes were lowered, as you can see I need to adjust the armholes a bit more. This is a great pattern,  I will adjust the pattern because I am planning to make another coat in the near future. 
Even though the coat is a test garment (muslin) I am going to wear it until t…

Butterick 6419 and 5941

My DD attended a spring fling event on April 21. The color for the event was blue, anything blue. She asked me to sew a blouse in blue with a large bow at the neck and palazzo’s pant in silver. She Choose Butterick 6419. I started with pant, the fabric was bought at Joann’s for 19.99/yd. Thank heavens for 50% coupon; I bought 3 yds. There is enough left over to make a blouse. I use my TNT pants (Butterick5941) made a muslin, extended the front crotch length and tweak the fit in the hips. I use the muslin as the pattern to cut the fashion fabric. The fabric took me out of my comfort zone, because of the appearance on the right side (liquid silver) , however, it was a knit and it sewed like butterrrrr. Next was the blouse; I did a muslin, there was minor adjustments in the back because of her narrow back and a swayback. I did not do a swayback adjustment in the muslin, instead I did the adjustment on the fashion fabric when I sewed the center back seam (I learned the technique in a class…
