Finishing off pre Xmas projects

5:17 pm

I spent the day on Friday finishing off some projects I cut out before Xmas and had no time to finish.
Firstly a needle roll.I've needed one of these for a while now,and finally decided to use up some knitted fabric salvaged from a poncho I spent 18 months knitting only to discover it was utterly horrible!
I lined the roll with quilters cotton,and used a really lovely ceramic button to fasten.
TBH it's not exactly how I imagined it.Sewing the knit to the cotton was not at all easy.I probably should have stabilised the knit first.

Secondly is a little cardy using a pattern from Ottobre Woman. I made the largest size,but unfortunately it still wouldn't stetch across my boobs. It's not quite a lurid green as it appears here.(please excuse the clashy and stained t shirt.)

Finally a skirt made using a pattern from Prima magazine.(April 2004) I used PRR Buttons cord dyed royal blue. I was so surprised at how great this fits,and it's actually quite flattering.
There is a front split,a yoked waist,and a centre back godet.

Don't be shy, say hello!
