I also cut a beautiful silk to make Burda which I already had traced but because of the cut on sleeves I couldn't find wide enough fabric to use for it. The silk is from Metro Textiles from a couple of years ago. I was very nervous cutting this out, my first time on a slippery silk. Of course I have used Bemberg rayon for many linings but never silk.
I found a nice velvet at Joann's to use for my son's wizard hat. Rhonda was very generous in offering me her quilted fabric, but my son was set in black with blue accents. I will have to quilt the fabric to get the look he wants.
While at Joann's I saw that they had quilt fabrics on sale and I couldn't resist on getting these
they will be a quilt for my in-renovation bedroom. By the way if painting was just about painting it would be a piece of cake, the priming is what is killing me.
Today I'm working on the wizard's hat, since my son is home from school I will be able to try on the pattern and see how it fits him.
Happy sewing, knitting, crocheting, quilting and reading everyone!
