I spent last night and tonight perfecting this cover and I can’t take my eyes off of it. When I had decided that I wanted to make a cover for my mixer, I just rushed right into it. I love, love, love how it turned out, but I do regret not making a pattern for it. Who knew I would be happy with it on the first try? I thought about making one, but couldn’t locate my manila folders( which is what I usually cut my patterns from) amongst all of the unpacked boxes. In my mind, we won’t be officially moved in until cars can go in the garage.
I love the silhouette in this print and the celery green. I used a dark brown binding along the bottom and across the top of the pocket. I have never worked with store bought binding before, I usually make my own. I inherited alot from my husband’s granny. This stuff is great!! No ironing? Love it! Although ironing does give me a chance to watch tv while I’m “working”. And there is something to be said about the control you have when you are pressing fabric. I love the hot steam and heat bending and creasing all material at my will. Guess I missed my calling as a dominatrix. oh, well.
I have been wanting to use this Amy Butler fabric for quite some time. But I knew it had to be just the right project. Most of the time I just keep adding to my fabric stash, because I am too particular about how I want to use it. Then it just sits there waiting, and by the time I am ready… I’m sick of looking at it. To heck with the “perfect” project, I am going to start getting busy while I am still excited about it. These are the two that I want to work with next.
I love these two together. It’s Joel Dewberry and Amy Butler. I think the picture is a little distorted because I have no idea how to shrink them before uploading. David!! What, oh what, will it evolve into? For some reason, when I look at this I see pillow case, but I sure don’t need any of those. And that is why I have issues with fabric. The problem is that there are just too many possibilities. That’s a pretty good problem to have!
