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.

Fall sewing

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.

My Travelers Notebook

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.

first tee shirt in action

This is the first tee I made with my cricut. I got some camo scraps from the thrift store and I made this skirt.  I almost bought a pair of gold shoes and a hair bow.  I was so siked when I made a tagless tag.  HTV has so many possibilities.

Client Sewing

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!
