GreenStitch Episode 22 - Family Ties

We're all the way up to Episode 22 of the GreenStitch podcast. Haven't heard this one one yet? Just click here.

Here's the little apron that started out as a voluminous denim dress and a plaid cotton shirt! (It looks substantially different from the knitting pattern that prompted it, but the inspiration was there nonetheless.)
Hope you can see here how the buttonhole placket turned easily into button tabs on the sides.

Here's the button shoulder. No need for buttons to match, I say! That's what Aunt Anne's button jar is for....

OK, so it's probably hard to get a sense of the full wonderful-ness of these vintage embroidery linens from this photo - but at a dollar a pop, I wasn't about to resist them. The linen just feels so wonderful. I'm sure that after I let the thoughts percolate around for awhile, I'll think of a suitable use -- am delighted to take your suggestions as well.

That's it for now - thanks for listening. I do appreciate all your comments, e-mails, and iTunes reviews. See you next time!

  1. Per blogs like this one is I know how important sewing is. My mother wanted to pay me some lessons not so long ago and I didn't want to, however now I can see the huge opportunity I lost.
