I know it is Autumn when I start coveting sweaters.....and each year I like to treat myself to one special one...thou usually they are Cashmere, angora or wool, for once I actually bought one that was not.
I had been holding off on this one, but found myself drawn to it each time I looked at it in the Victoria Trading Company catalog....so I gave in and bought it. OMG! it is yummy soft & sweet and it even came with it's own sweater bag.....which gave me an idea...why not convert some of my vintage hand stitched pillowcases into sweater bags...all I would need to do is cut the top-back side off, hem the edges & Voila' instant sweater bag. Tuck in a little lavender sachet and my good sweaters will be kept sweet & safe..... I was at Joanns Fabric store the other day & their McCall patterns were on sale.
Now normally I would not but a Pattern for YoYo projects, but for .99cents, what the heck!
It features a yoyo garland, 2 different size yoyo trees, a wreath and a stocking decorated with yoyos.
The little pumpkin candle pad is just a simple project from the 'Bareroots' craft pattern line.
A nice project to work on while sitting in front of the Idiot Box(T.V.).....
I am currently spending more time in my sewing room....much needed 'sewing therapy'! lol!
