Odd headline, but when you consider I’ve had this large print fabric for awhile now, because it was too pretty to cut – it is very appropriate.
Sew what did I cut?
My Kaffe Fasset Collection fabric. Kaffe Spots, and Philip Jacobs Japanese Crysanthemum to be exact. Maybe it’s because the name says “cry” I just couldn’t cut it up, until I decided it was time to get pretty!
I told myself I couldn’t start another handbag until I finished my round bag for the rotating cutting mat. Well I finished it, so I got out my Kaffe Fasset collections, and made a couple of things. A shirt and handbag. The bag is a free pattern called Phoebe that was modfied by adding an inset zipper closure, a large pocket on the outside, a cell phone pocket on the side, and a divider. I later added some slides to the handle to be able to adjust the length. The shirt was “newLook” pattern #6871
I fussy cut the front and back of the shirt pieces, as well as the outside pocket on the bag to place a big fat Crysanthemum front and center!
I am pretty sure Philip Jacobs would be tickled pink!
Modifed inside of Phoebe bag.
Sew, how do you top that?
You don’t, but every now and then your eyes need to rest from all that excitement, so you make another couple of things.
Also fussy cut.
Getting really good at these inset zippers!
and of course matching reading glasses case!
These outfits take about 2 yards of each color, and there is some left over, but that’s ok. I can use it in a quilt!
Am I doing a 3rd? You bet!
