This is the light weight M7262 I mentioned in the last post. Came out great. I really want to make another one but that maybe going too far. I am now thinking of a M6844 view B nice simple cardi. I have some nice sweater knit that is the fall burgundy/wine color that is trending this fall. But I am not sure if I want to do a sweater dress with that. I have styled both waterfall cardis with black dresses I need to pin other ways to style these.

September is national sewing month. Although I am in school I am going to squeeze in some sewing. Just back from the beach and I stayed up all night because I was bound and determined to get in some sewing Lol! The pattern I used was M7262. The fabric is from fabric mart. It an easy pattern. Seeing how I left off the buttons. Just going to wear it open. I have been saying for some time now that I need to step up my cardigan game. This pattern was very big last fall. I can see why some people made so many. I have a lighter weight one made with mesh knit planned for tonight.

Hey, I diy'ed my travelers notebook (TN) but I love it. I am currently thinking how to reduce it down to just two books my journal and my planner. I need either to add a small piece to the back or make a whole new cover. Right now I have my journal (the pic on the front is not mines I copied it for Erra the creator on Instagram I love her art work),
I have my food journal. I am thinking if I could reduce this to an insert in the planner.
My food at a glance sheet I am either going to add it as a page in the food journal insert or make it a one page insert into my planner either way this separate section is going away as well as my habit tracker which I am still getting used to using . I may add a list of books I have read for the year but not sure. I like this set up. The TN fits easily in my clutches. now to add a pen loop and a charm.

I sew for others every now and then. My friend text me "Can you make this? It is a wrap skirt." I have never made a wrap skirt but I said yeah! Pretty sure there was a pattern online somewhere. Of course there was. I used this wrap skirt pattern. I modified it by using a circle skirt pattern I already had, but all in all it came out great and she had someone ask her where they could one! I need to make two more one for my daughter and one for me!

I ordered my vinyl Friday morning it was on my door step Monday evening. My plan was to sew up a few things while watching the Olympics but as soon as I hit the door I was at the Cricut. LOL. This is my first adult shirt only my second shirt! First one was a baby onesie but I am coming along. Now I have a shirt, thank you cards and clothing labels all representing me! Eeeeek! I made the skirt too. The fabric is from Hobby Lobby. Pattern M6706.
