Another McCall's Bias Cut Blouse - McCall's 7125


Another attempt of getting outside of my comfort zone.

Faux Locs & Faux Fur Vest - McCalls 7695


McCall's Pattern M7695 worked nicely with this faux fur remnant I found at Joann Fabrics.  I decided to have some fun and make this vest instead of a throw pillow...the original intent of the purchase.

Patterns for Pirates Cocoon Cardigan in a Sweater Knit



One thing I love about cardigans....they can be worn oversized!  

Okay maybe not TOO big, which this cardigan is borderline now.  But I made this about 30 pounds ago.  And I still plan on rocking it during the unpredictable fall/winter months of the south.
