May is a crazy month for us. My birthday, my friend Lisa’s birthday, Mother’s Day and our wedding anniversary, all within 2 weeks. On top of it, my iMac that I use to do all of my photo editing and pattern writing has been downright unusable lately and we finally figured out what was wrong with it and fixed it, so that will help my productivity tremendously! On top of that, my friend Lisa and I decided to plan a last minute road trip to Canada in a couple weeks, so I’m excited about that and determined to get this entire To-Do list done before we leave.
The gadget sleeve pattern is in progress. I have sizes for a few of the Kindles, iPhone, iPad and MacBook Air. I have to finish taking the photos and writing it and then sew each size and make sure the pattern piece sizes I extrapolated from the Kindle are correct. :) I will include dimensions in the pattern so you can make one easily if your Nook is say, 1″ wider than one of the Kindles or something like that. But, if I’ve made a huge omission of a popular device, let me know. Just keep in mind I can’t possibly keep up with every Nook and Sony and all the sizes of cell phones out there so I stick to what I know. But I’m always up for suggestions, too!
Once I finish with that I want to make one of these bags for my trip, which will probably be a prototype for my next pattern. I’ll post any other travel-related stuff that I make – maybe pillows, a new camera strap cover, and maybe another smaller bag? I also finished my jeans except for the button and button hole, so I will post about that!
I have had a bunch of requests for a license for my Little Dog Tie tutorial and the iPhone sleeve, so I posted that if you’re interested.
What did I sew this week? Well, I managed to spill orange juice all over my wallet, so I had to make a new one (oh darn!) So since I need it *fast* and didn’t want to spend any time figuring it out, I grabbed my favorite Keyka Lou (now Michelle Patterns!) wallet pattern, the Simple Wallet, and printed it at 85% (80% works great too if you just want it for CC/biz cards) and I just used the larger pocket.
That’s it for now! I’m tempted to post a pattern sale until I finish my next one, both as a thank you and as some motivation for me to finish it. Post a comment on here or FB or send me a tweet and tell me if you want that! Or just tell me to hurry up with the new stuff already! ;)
