Week 7 - 50 Crafts/52 Weeks

Did you notice the skirt I posted yesterday? Here are the details!

Everything that I am making that is modern sewing should be part of the "Morgan Collection" because I have been using up all that fabric she has given me to make modern clothes.

Project ten is this green skirt is made out of upholstery fabric from the 1960's - it has a heavy hand, but a lot of stretch on the bias.

Highland Fling or something..

I decided I wanted to do a scalloped hem - this is my first - and it turned out okay. To make the hem I traced a tupperware lid onto a manila envelope and then used that to trace on the skirt. I lined it in a cotton that I had on hand, and put in an old zipper that was sitting in my trim box. It was a pretty quick sew and one of those things that's easy enough that you don't need a pattern. I love not having to run out and buy things to sew, too!



Fifty first crafts finished a crocheted scarf this week - it's s surprise gift for someone and I'm sure they'll love it because it's so cute!

Okac has been on a baking roll. I'm going to force her to come to my house and make me cream cheese frosting! Also, she made an earring hanger and as a bonus cleaned off her craft table.

Studio Marlowe finished up the knitting portion of her Samantha sweater. I can't wait to see it when it's completely done!

Morgan finished up another hat. She's a knitting machine. Well, not really...she's human...but you know what I mean.

Squishythings has been working on a sketchbook. She's so colorful!


  1. Great stuff, everyone!
    I have been a slacker on the craft front this week too (been working on my hooping in my free time instead) but have a few things percolating, hopefully I will have something to share next week!

    Elizabeth I love that skirt - especially with your knee socks! Super cute :) xx

  2. I love everything about that skirt!
    the fabric, the color, the rounded bits... and it looks great on you!

  3. What a wonderful skirt! I love the scalloped hem.

    Yes, I made the knitting girl om my blog, it was a while ago and I have been thinking about making a change. I do like here though, so I think she will be left.

  4. perfect skirt and hair colour, natural color?
