The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle

We all have some projects "in progress" laying around, garments that we start and work on only intermittently because of our busy lives.  Over this weekend I finished not one but TWO of those "in progress" works and it is so rewarding.  For next week I have a new long sleeve floral print blouse and a new furry handbag.  

The furry handbag took longer than I care to remember.  I have to say I am quite satisfied with the handbag, made from a beige and white zebra micro-fur fabric.  I have to admit the binding on the bag was challenging however, the most difficult part was working with buckram.  Grrrrrrr....  I get frustrated with projects involving buckram and thats why this one took so long.  

The blouse is made out of a sheer crepe  fabric to allow for a flowing, lightweight, silhouette.  While I just love the finished look, this one took me about 2 and a 1/2 weeks, from start to finish.  The fabric presented a challenge in this but it was worth it.  I will post pictures this week!
