My sewing this week!

Posted by Lena Kantis
My week have been filled with all kinds of sewing projects. I can not count all different sewing projects this week. 

I did have lunch in town one time this week, and ended up with 3 new fabrics, that I found irrestistable. I have cut out another tunic in blue, I will share next week what embroidery I am decorating it with. That will be for my teaching in the USA. (Same model as from the blog last week.)

I have started to sew a cocktail dress for the gala dinner (last dinner at convention). It will be in blue silk, however to to see if the dress will fit me I have started to make one in ordinary fabric that I can wear for the office.  Here is the prototype so far.




Pattern is a New Look pattern number 6223.




Have you seen the new "Keeping the World Sewing videos"? Below you can see one sewing project, a pair of jeans decorated with embroidery designs on the front pocket area. Love this easy way of making the jeans very fancy! The design collection is Husqvarna Viking # 185 "Lovely lace on tulle".



I made a pillow for my friend Lotta, she turned 50 last Saturday and I attended the birthday party. That was so much fun! 



 Quick gift! One color embroidery, finished the edge with piping in black and on the backside of the pillow has got an invisible zipper. Done!
