I had another busy week, so I’m posting another bucket hat that I made. It’s a Kitsch Bitsch bucket hat pattern and it’s reversible. The free pattern can be found atLost in Paris. This was a quick and easy tutorial.
Twenty-eight weeks to go . . . There’s nothing new under the sun, just your interpretation.
This week I created something that was not sewn. I like to dabble in screen printing, so today I took a CYMK (cyan, yellow, magenta, and black) screen printing workshop at the Newark Print Shop. It’s not easy working with four colors but the results are awesome. Watching your colors blend before your eyes is really cool! My tester was done on paper, and then I screened a tote bag (not shown) and t-shirt. I used a picture of a quilt that I made. This is definitely an interesting process. The photo on the left is printed on paper, the middle photo (t-shirt) first yellow and then cyan, and the last photo (t-shirt) has all four colors.
Twenty-nine weeks to go . . . What should I create this week?
I took the easy way out again, and found a DIY quick project. I made a Journaling Bookmark (and pencil holder). The sewing tutorial can be found onSew Can She‘s website. After I made the bookmark; I realized I should have added a medium to heavy interfacing to the back fabric for more stability.
Thirty weeks to go . . . thinking about making a bucket hat for my youngest grandson. I saw a free pattern by Liesl Gibson.
Oh well, I didn’t make it in time this week. I started at 8 pm on Sunday. So, I am late posting my project. I am trying to get my project completed before Sunday, but as we all know procrastination is a waste of time. However, I did make the reversible bucket hat.
Thirty-three weeks to go . . . What will tickle my fancy this week?
I decided to keep it simple because I went away this week, and didn’t have time to be overly creative. While I was away; I went to the Grand Canyon. I purchased a coin purse. I really like the simplicity and fabric of the coin purse; it can also be worn around your neck. So, I decided to make my very own coin purse without the string. I guesstimated the measurements. The results are posted; pictures of the purchased coin purse and pictures of the one I made.
