September furtle

Sadly there isn't much to furtle about on my blog this month. I only managed one finish and one blog post for the whole month, which is rather shocking/disappointing. In reality, I have sewn a little bit more than just the bralette I showed yesterday but it seems that I have done lots of little bits but nothing to the end. I started a Calvin dress but I didn't go very far. I started sewing my Sirocco jumpsuit but didn't go very far either. I cut a pair of Quadra jeans for my hubby but didn't go further than the back pockets. I started some baby rattles and only finished one out of 3 I started to make some sunglasses pouches but only made 3 The one thing that I nearly finished is my new Jangle Anchor Bags. It really only needs the bling now but I need my husband to help for this step and he has important deadlines early October so it will have to wait until after then....

One finish and one post....

The desolate state of my blog is rather reflective of the state of my sewing this month. Simply I have hardly done anything... there has been a lot of work and very little time to sew, more business travelling too which takes time and energy. But finally this week-end, I managed to make one piece from the fabric I had cut very early this month. I had planned to try the Barrett Bralette pattern by Madalynne  which is a free pattern. I had cut out the pieces and then realised I needed to order some elastic, which I did! And when the elastic came, it was time to go away. Finally last night I had some free time and decided to pick this project hoping it would be easy and quick. Well, the bralette comes together rather quickly and simply if you read the instructions correctly. Being jet-lagged didn't help for sure... but I managed to finish my bralette. It is not perfect but it fits me and that what matters in the end. Whether I will wear it a lot remains to be seen but that is do
