* trim

Posted on July 26th, 2007 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.

I mentioned a while back that I’d sent in my meticulously saved Wrights trim wrappers for my special! offer! as advertised. It came a long time ago, and a nice commenter reminded me that I never posted it. They really do mean it when they say it’s a “generous package;” it came in one of those big yellow envelopes. Some of it is fairly awful, like iridescent lace, and lace that appears to be made out of tinsel, and a second type of iridescent lace. But I like enough of it (check the cool bandanna print bias trim) that it was totally worth the $4. In fact, it looks like I’ve already saved up 3 more wrappers….


Oh, and the other cool thing that came with it was an order form for the Wrights Factory Outlet. It’s crazy, like 15 assorted packs of bias tape for $3.30, and 12 packs of rickrack for $2.75, all discontinued, irregular, or overstocked. I think it’s worth an order to find out.


* coin quilt clone

Posted on July 11th, 2007 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.

On a lark, I submitted my doll coin quilt to an upcoming book, Pretty Little Patchworks. They accepted it (!), and since I sent the first one away for swap, I had to make another one and document the steps. It’s amazing how much easier something is when you’re doing it for the second time and not making it up on the fly. For example, the seams on take 2 are actually mostly at right angles.
