In Sewing News Today...

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone survived the holiday season without too much any damage to the budget, stress level, and sleep patterns. Santa(s) were very generous this year with tools to help out in the sewing room.  

One of the items was one my Christmas wish list, the small pair of scissors. The other item, Pro Seam Ripper Kit, is a new-to-me item. I almost can't wait until my next sewing blooper to try it out. Stay tuned.  

In other sewing news, I've decided to continue with RTW fasting even though I did stumble over 2015. Looking back my RTW purchases were activewear, tights / pantyhose, undergarments, and sweaters. I believe that 2016 will be a better year for the RTW fast well because I'm all set for activewear, undergarments and tights are allowed items and sweaters. Well, I need to work on the sweater thing.  

And it is Jungle January and I currently have my first Jungle January project on the cutting table. I hope to have it finished and photographed to show you tomorrow.  

Happy Sewing!  


  1. That looks like a seam ripper I have! Cuts well!

    1. Good to know! Does it work on knits too?

  2. My next sewing blooper is never very far away!!!

It's an easy sewing project for a loose-fitting pullover top. It's my second go with this pattern and I still want to make another ...
