I Made My Clothes

It is Fashion Revolution Week, and I make my clothes.

On 24 April 2013, the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed. 1,138 people died and another 2,500 were injured, making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history. That’s when Fashion
Revolution was born. There were five garment factories in Rana Plaza all manufacturing clothing for the western market. The victims were mostly young women.

Knitted Face Cloths

I bought two books with dishcloth patterns.
First book I am using is the Knit Discloths. So far I have made four of the fifteen patterns.
Split Nine Patch
Arrow Point
Annies Choice

Eleven to go.

These are great little projects that can be  picked up and put down, forgotten about, no harm done. There are always a couple of cloths put away to use as small gifts with a cake of my soap.

What will I do with so many?

Sewing Corner

A few little things made lately, just to keep my hands and mind busy.

A small dilly bag to carry my phone when out walking, such a nuisance in a pocket or being carried in my hand.

Two coasters made for the "Sewing Project-April" at HMF.  One square, one triangle, made from fabric scraps. These are super easy and a great way to use small scraps.

I saw a top on Pinterest and followed the links of course, and bought this pattern book, has some very lovely tops/dresses can see my ever expanding wardrobe, expand more.

That's all for now.
