"Sewing Jots & Tittles" is my weekly post where I get to ramble on and on about sewing related stuff that's been on my mind. Here what's been orbiting my brain.....
- Button Lovin'--After sewing my last dress I've found a new love for sewing buttons. I prefer invisible zipper since they are my favorite notion but I have to admit, sewing buttonholes and buttons was less of a chore than I originally thought. My sewing machine makes it a piece of cake and for the first time I used my machine to sew on my buttons which was super easy. I don't know why I was dreading it in the first place.
this post finally arrived. It's thin and quite translucent but very strong. And it's much less expensive than other forms of tracing materials. I can't wait to give it a try. I found out they actually sell this stuff in wider widths so I might look into getting a huge roll of that and fold it in half to cut. The wider one's are use when setting up septic tanks and go on the bottom of them. It's amazing how such a product can be used in sewing:)
I had to go shopping for "undergarments" this weekend. It's not my favorite thing and feels like more a chore. As we all know, elastic doesn't last forever and to keep from looking like . Anyway to make the process easier I always bring one of my bras in and use it as a template for the one's I try on and buy. Anyway I saw this bra and thought it was rather funny. I don't know about you, but I surely don't buy a bra to "minimize" anything---accentuate is more like it. It's a 36C (my size), is that even large enough to try and minimize???? I know there are some women who do but I'll leave this one for them! LOL!

-Pattern for this Fabric
I absolutely LOVE this fabric! The colors are pretty awesome---white, gray, orange, olive, and silver abstract print that's sheer and crinkly. I have in mind what type of dress I want I'm just waiting to see an exact picture of it so I can copy it.
Denim Print knit---
Don't ask but I want this for a project so badly! I saw some jeggings a WalMart long ago and they were actually not denim, but a knit with a denim print! How clever is that. I want some of that fabric!!! Has anyone seen any anywhere?

So that's what's been on my mind. What's been on yours?
