I am digging these lamé oils cases I whipped up yesterday! I've never been adventurous with using apparel fabric for purses, but now my eyes have opened. The trick was to apply two layers of Pellon SF101 to the back side of the lamé, carefully, and then proceed as normal.

In other sewing news, Rae is hosting a photo challenge for her Geranium Dress pattern.
I've made a couple Geraniums for Ruby and she loves them. They are easy to sew up and comfortable to wear. The dresses I've made close with snaps rather than buttons- just because I like to be extra fast. There are several different style options and you could easily color block it or mix and match elements to create your Little's favorite dress or top.

I also listened to Jeremy Irons read Lolita (I've read it before in my late teens)--and all I can say is Jeremy is a god.He is astounding,-his pronunciation, accentuation, fluidity, speed, everything. Stunning. Even his French is perfection. Listen to it, you will hear what I mean.

Ok that's it for now. I've got to finish hand binding this blasted quilt so it's ready for Sun Prairie Quilt Show this week. Hope to see you there if you're local!
