I made a fun wristlet with the vintage embroidery pattern in a previous post, *and* managed to take some photos. I love this pattern. I started a PDF for it last summer, but time got away from me. I should put that on to-do short list for this weekend. Before I get that pattern up in my Craftsy store, I think I need to make a slightly larger body so I will fit the bigger cell phones. Fits the iPhone perfectly, but I don't want to be overly partial to the technology.
Tonight I finished another shirt using my keyhole pattern. I decided I needed a sailor shirt. Yes, something for when I take to the sea later this summer. Oh, I had fun with this one! I went with a nice blue cotton for the body, sleeves and collar, with contrasting yoke in white. I used matching blue floss for my anchor and star embroidered decals.
And just for good measure, a kind of crappy photo of a headless me wearing the shirt. I wanted to show how the now porthole neckline (as my keyhole has gone nautical) falls on me.
If I didn't get sidetracked with things like work, I would have finished this a day or two ago. But the job puts fabric on the cutting table so I can't really complain, especially since I happen to enjoy what I do.
