I spent all day sewing and now it’s too dark for good photos of this patap dress pieced from light blue and dark blue t-shirts.

This sewing project, using stiff nitex mesh, was challenging in this location; the mesh kept pressing up against my thread racks and knocking things off and there wasn’t enough room on the table. But it I got it done…

After hours of stitching (a bit on the machine, lots by hand), I’ve completed the case for my Nexus 6 (it was given to me or I would have chosen the 5). Or maybe I’m not finished, I could add some painted details?

This the ugly corner of my sewing room: I try to hide my fabric scraps in these plastic shopping bags stacked on one another but not so much that it doesn’t shame me into using them (by keeping them obvious and close at hand). (My paper patterns are kept in the portfolio behind the bags.)

This isn’t an appropriate outfit for today’s weather but I’m happy to have completed the bias tape and finished binding the arm- and neck-holes and show it off.
