The beading on my bag is finished. I want to find a silver chain to use as a handle, and I will make a lining for it. Nancy K asked if I will bead on garments. I have done some beading on clothes, but beads get heavy, so I've used them sparingly. There is a good sample of beaded embroidery on a dress in the current issue of Threads. This little bag is surprisingly heavy.
I made a muslin for the Felted Wool Jacket class that is next week, already. I don't know what happened to October. I seemed to have missed it. Anyway, the instructor wants us to have a fitted muslin for class. She wants all construction marks on the muslin, which means we will be taking it apart and using it for our pattern.
I made S2701. (Blogger will not let me link today. Someone else was complaining about that earlier.)
The instructor advised us to have a collar-less jacket. Preferably Princess seams, rather than darts, and a simple design. This pattern seemed to fit the bill. There is a round-neck version. There is a pleat in the back, which I took out. I have a good fit, with all construction marks, grainlines, etc. on the muslin. All I have left to do to prepare for the class is get my "Little Brother" sewing machine from upstairs and make sure it sews the decorative threads without issues.
Next--I want to make a couple of aprons for holiday gifts. I have the fabrics washed. I'll probably get those started on Thursday.
