Preparation played a big part in my projects for yesterdays sewing. Cutting things out and organising threads and of course fitting the needles to the overlocker played a big part in getting things done and finished. I managed to get three items done. This is the potholder/heated pad and potmitt I made for Bonnie. I ended up using some recycled calico for the lining of the potmitt and for the backing of the potholder/heated pad. I made the potholder/heated pad a bit bigger than usual because I was using up the insul bright wadding I had left over from another project. The material I had bought at Goody Sammy's and have used all of that up now. A few less items in the sewing room. Not that you could tell the difference.
I also made a T-Shirt for myself. It is a Kwik Sew pattern Number 2054. I made the short sleeved one,though I didn't worry about the pocket. I have metres and metres of this stretchy material. It must have been on special ,one of those buy 2 get 3 metres.I guess I will be making some more shirts. I made this a couple of inches longer than the pattern as I tend to get a little sunburnt in the summer when leaning over while I am gardening. This will help aleviate this problem.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Back on Monday with "What Makes Me Happy Monday" posting.
