Simplicity Pattern Review 8856

 I made it!  I took the time to make this cute Boho Style shirt/dress! AND.... I Vlogged about it too!


Yes it was not as easy as the others but I really love the results! Click here to see the full video.



I made with rayon fabric. I think its a must have in any women’s wardrobe! This tunic shirt goes great with leggings and I love the pockets! Its loose fitting and very comfortable.

I would say the pattern is more for an intermediate sewer. I don’t think it was an easy shirt to sew. The pattern involves gathering fabric, lots of pinning and sewing on a pocket, sewing on the lining and using stabilizer. I also attached a button to the back.
The pattern gives detailed instructions on how to sew the shirt. Just read slow and you will have no problem making this!

Camera Tripod Stabilizer

 


In this video I will be making a mini quilting project. You will see how to sew together a Scrap quilt block. This is an easy quilt block for beginners. 




The quilt block is called a disappearing nine patch.

We will first start out with making a scrappy 9 patch block then strategically cut it to make a different design. 





I love Mini quilt projects, and quilting although I don’t have a lot of time so I prefer mini quilting instead! I love Small quilting projects because I’m able to finish the project while still keeping up with my other obligations in life. 

Even if you are a beginner you can still tackle these  small quilting projects! 


 




The sewing project for  today is a stabilizer for my tripod but you can sew up anything with this disappearing nine patch method. For example you could make hot pads, bag, quilt, etc.




You will also see how  I straight line quilt.
