Grainline Studio

I have ventured further with the stretch knits and made a t-shirt completely on my overlocker, that fourth needle has never been in before.  I was very excited about it, everyone else in my house couldn't understand my jubilation over an ordinary t-shirt!  Grain line Studio Linden again.


I got some fab sweat shirting from the Fancy Silk store and made a long sleeved version size 12 but decided it was far too big, so I cut it down to a size 8 and it was alright but has been stolen by another member of my household,  I have replenished my fabric and I'm going to do the 10 which should be just right.  This is a short sleeve version from the original leftovers with neon orange side pockets.

Grainline Studio again, this was my muslin for my Farrow, it's now gone to live with a friend.

I made one up in a teal corduroy, the only problem is the nap makes it very hard to get a coat or cardigan on on top of it,  lesson learned.

Now I'd got the Farrow sussed next up was a version in Brushed Japanese Linen from The Cloth House.  I was obviously having a good day when I bought this fabric because I got three metres which is unheard of for me, but it meant that for once I had plenty of yardage and I even cut the pieces all going in the same direction, very extravagant but I will use up the excess.

I took myself off to the Big Smoke at the weekend, this is the Sapporo Coat from Papercut Patterns, I tried it on at Raystitch - teal Farrow underneath - this is next on my to do list.

I also popped into The Cloth House and discovered many delights, obviously!  The reason for my trip was actually to take a class with the super duper talented Olgajazzy, she was teaching her Kune-Kune class - this was my christmas knit - but I took her brand spanking new Ten-Ten.  I am in awe of her.
