New blog

I have started a new blog and website at:
http://linenlife.weebly.com/
I have started doing a lot of work with linen.  It is a wonderful fabric.  And it has health benefits.  You can't get better than that.  Here is a sample of a few things I have been doing.

Sleep pants

Pillow cases
 
I have also made some linen/cotton dish towels.
These make great gifts

French Blue Linen Tunic

I made this tunic for myself.
I rarely sew things for myself.
But I am on this linen thing now and I really need some new clothes.
 
 
This one has pintucks.
I don't think the next will!

Finally - a new post!!

So I haven't posted anything for a long while,
but I have an excuse.
I have a real job and not much sewing time.
Hence, I made a lunch bag for myself.

Lining of my lunch bag
 
And another lunch bag for Jessica.
She keeps losing them!!
That is very annoying.

 
So I am kind of on a linen kick here.
I made myself this very basic linen tunic.
I will wear it to work tomorrow.
I know it wrinkles lots!!
Oh well.

Wisteria Linen Tunic
 And this is my linen shopping bag.
I didn't line it so it will fold up easily to put in my purse.

Embroidering team shirts

My daughters kids are in ringette.
She wanted to make them some team wear.
So we designed these embroideries
and I embroidered all the t-shirts.
The kids loved them
