Happy New Year!!
I always write the same thing this time of year. I love it because of the hopefulness if offers. I think that you can see it in people's faces and feel it in their actions if you pay attention. Maybe it's just me, but I look forward to the new year almost as much as Christmastime.
I have spent most of the past year baking; building, slowly but surely, the cupcake company. Therefore, I have spent very few hours at the sewing machine. Last weekend I had a break and decided to make this table slip for the chest that we use as a coffee table in our living room. I adore anything scalloped. Please note that this is far from perfect…as is everything I do. I would change about ten details about it, including the method I used to create the scalloping. But it was my first time and definitely is a start.
I used a drop cloth, which I have never worked with before. I am reasonably pleased with it. Admittedly, I am spoiled though, as I have worked with nothing but vintage as well as new linens for the last four years.
Next I am going to make a fitted table cloth out of white linen. This time I will use a different process to create the scallops though. Hopefully it will look a little better.
Also, a customer of mine ordered a grain sack euro sham. I didn't have any in stock so made this one for her. I am thrilled with how it turned out!! I hope she likes it as well.
These sacks are usually 18-23" in width. So I had to add side panels to accommodate the a euro insert.
I love that I was able to keep the original ties intact. Also, I like that the stripes are navy while the monogram is sort of French blue.
Enjoy your day
