What’s on my sewing table

Or maybe I should say floor . . . My fabric is kind of all over the place when I work . . .

Anyways, I don’t have a finished project today, but just felt like checking in with some projects that I’m currently working on and fabric that I’m working with.

First up, is this amazing TRIPLE gauze.  Yes, that’s right – not double, but triple.

Triple Gauze Reversible Dots from Miss Matatabi

It came out of the wash like a dreamy fluffy cloud!  It’s basically already quilted.  I love the cozy, yet super lightweight feel.  Oh, and it’s reversible.

This fabric is for my next Miss Matatabi Makers post.  Here’s a little peek of the project in progress.  Can you guess what it is?  I’m using a JUST released pattern.  Look out for the finished project on Miss Matatabi in a week and a half or so.

Well, I bet you’ll have an easier time guessing that THIS is going to be!!  Here’s a hint – it’s for Yuki, and she’s absolutely frozen with anticipation.

Soon to be Elsa dress

Oh, she’s officially OBSESSED with the movie!  And she’s suddenly reeeally into dress up/costumes at her school.  *sigh*  I suppose it was inevitable and there’s no point fighting it now.

Elsa in the making

I made the mistake of showing her the bodice that I was working on and every day since then she’s asked me, “Is my dress done yet!?”  Truth is, I could finish it pretty quickly, but I’m trying to think of something Yuki can do to earn the dress.  Recently, we’ve been feeling like she’s getting pretty spoiled.  We give her lots of things without her having to work for it.  So I’m worried that she doesn’t understand the value of anything.  We started assigning her some chores and we’re trying a sticker chart, so I think I’m going to tell her that she can have her dress when she earns 10 stickers or something like that.

So yeah – an Elsa inspired dress (definitely not going for an exact copy) is on my sewing table right now.

And this lovely stack of fabrics arrived just yesterday . . .

Kokka Irome

It’s the new line, Irome, from Kokka.  I’m still in the brainstorming phase for these fabrics, though I have a couple of ideas.  What would you make with a stack of colorful fat quarters?

And what’s on your sewing table?
