Last week I made a new Two Zip Hipster from the super awesome Jessica Jones Outside Oslo Home Dec fabric, and it was so cute it was just begging to be my new cover photo. So after a few revisions thanks to advice from some helpful twitter peeps, here we go:
Here’s a few more. I can’t get over how awesome this is. I LOVED not needing to use fusible interfacing on the home dec weight fabric. I still used Pellon 50 sew-in, and used fusible on the inside lining fabric which was plain solid cotton. As much as I love it, I have so many of these hipsters and more to make, so I might be able to be convinced to part with a few of them in the Etsy shop. I have a few samples and de-stash items to list, if there is interest?
I am just so in love with this fabric. I still need to take a few more photos on a day with more natural light. (Those photo lights are great for middle of the night photo shoots, but I always want to take more natural shots!)
I also want to share with you two amazing pattern reviews. My friends Beth and Melanie each made one of my patterns and posted detailed reviews! I didn’t know they were going to do this and it was so sweet of them to take the time to do it. So please go visit their blogs!
Melanie has been making Quick Zip Lunch Bags like crazy, and she has some tips for you on working with laminated and PUL fabrics. Melanie always finds the cutest fabric and I am forever coveting everything she makes. Her review is here. The pattern is here.
Beth made a Hipster and wrote the sweetest review. Beth is amazing at sewing clothes, and she taught the jeans class that I took at the LQS. She also just attended Bernina University and posted some tidbits about the new 7 series machine, so go check that out too!
