    Apple_peel_leggings_-_side_view_arms_down_listing

    These are the “Apple peel B” leggings from the third Pattern Magic book, entirely designed for knit fabrics! I altered an existing leggings pattern using their instructions, to slash and spread the…

    squirrellypoo commented on the project Asymmetric golden rose silk blouse

    Oh I’m so glad I could help! I totally recommend something simple for your first silk blouse pattern. The free Colette Patterns “Sorbetto” top is a really good one, just so you can practice your fi…

    squirrellypoo commented on the project Drape drape no3 dress

    I’m so glad to see this made up, and on a body also larger than their tiny XL size! This was my favourite from the book and the first one I want to sew. Thanks so much for sharing – you look fabulous!

    Very nice! I loved this in the magazine but I hate sewing with velvet so it’s nice to see that it can succeed in a friendlier fabric! You look radiant in this!

    squirrellypoo commented on the project Sequin running vest

    Thanks so much! I just loved that trompe l’oiel sequin fabric so much that I couldn’t throw away even such a small piece. I try to glam up running gear as much as I can – stretch lace is my other t…

    squirrellypoo commented on the project Purple running leggings

    thanks! You should totally go for it! Exercise gear is one of the few areas where it actually makes financial sense to sew your own. I ran in the above outfit last night at my running crew (10km in…

    squirrellypoo commented on the project Grey Pattern Magic "Flip Turn" top

    Ha! I’m more of the “make it in scrap fabric and see what happens” school of thought. I’ve actually made a second version since this, too. It’ll go up on FehrTrade on Thursday! :)

    Sequin_top_purple_leggings_-_quad_stretch_listing

    I combined the AWESOME “Ooh La Leggings” pattern with the equally awesome Suziplex fabric I bought in Montreal to make the ultimate in running legging comfort. Honestly these are even better qualit…

    squirrellypoo added the project Sequin running vest
    Sequin_top_-_alone_listing

    I drafted the basic knit bodice block from Metric Pattern Cutting, and then altered it into a snazzy new running singlet. The hardest part by far was attaching the binding. I bought a binder attach…

    squirrellypoo added the project Leather iPad case
    Ipad_case_-_partially_inserted_listing

    I made this case to protect and conceal the new iPad I received for my birthday this year. It’s got bronzed leather on the outside, and a thick sweatshirting inside to cushion it, with a velcro clo…

    squirrellypoo added the project Grey Pattern Magic "Flip Turn" top
    Grey_flip_turned_top_listing

    Ever since I first opened the Pattern Magic books, a few designs have been burning a hole in my sewing brain. One of these was the “Flip Turn for a Draped Effect” bodice from Pattern Magic 2, and I…

    Lycra_lace_listing

    I wanted to start making more of my own running clothes, so I started with some known patterns and heavily modified these to suit my needs and add in interesting pattern lines. I’ve also added two …
