This will be the first installment of OOPS, aka Outside Oslo Project Status.
Thanks to the fabulous Marmalade Fabrics, I have one yard each of Jessica Jones' (aka How About Orange) equally fabulous new line of fabric, Outside Oslo.
I love everything about this line: the clean graphics, the colors, the nice weight of home dec fabric. The first sewing project will be Amy Butler's Weekender Travel Bag.
One of my best friends has been working on this project all week so I've gotten lots of valuable advice from her. Have any of you made it? I'll take any hints I can get. I'm so excited that my father has a heavy-duty sewing machine from his former days as a reupholsterer, so I'll be taking advantage of his piping foot and might actually sew the whole thing on his machine.
And here's a sneak peek at another OOPS project I'll be working on. I'll tantalize you with the "before" version for now.
The winner of the Name Game giveaway is Elisa Black, who said:
"I love your little name game/selvage pincushion and I am very excited for the upcoming series on bloggers names-- great idea!"
Thanks for playing along, Elisa.It will be on its way to you shortly.
Do you have a lot of projects lined up for the weekend? Do tell...
