I have finally had a chance to tidy up the sewing room and get busy on the machine! Made a sample of my Mod Girl Purse pattern for The Sewing Palace last week. They have received a few new rolls of laminate fabrics and this pink/red one is designed by Joel Dewberry. I enjoy using laminate fabrics and hope to find a few more ideas to use some in! Maybe when my daughter brings home her school books I'll nab them and give them a fresh cover of laminate instead of the basic old boring brown-bag cover! There are some tips and tricks to sewing with laminate and Amy Butler has grasciously posted them on her web site. You can find them here.

The new pattern for My Full "Charm"ing Apron Pattern is almost finished and here is how it looks with the bib added to it. The half and full apron patterns are both completely reversible so you really have two aprons in one! (As always, you can click on each picture to view a larger image).
