After a few weeks I have finally regained use of my hand enough for sewing and camera wielding. I sat down one afternoon and drafted up this fun scrappy apple, the pattern for which may or may not still need a little tweaking. And to keep myself from endlessly staring at my fabric stash wondering where to begin, I forced myself to use only fabric from my ridiculously crammed scrap drawer.
Before you ask...Every time I post a photo with this tape measure fabric, I get tons of emails inquiring about it, so I'll just go ahead and tell you the details here: the fabric is by American Jane, manufactured by Moda, and is currently out of print. Try searching eBay and you might get lucky! (The print to the left is also by American Jane, and the one on the right is a lemon print from Alexander Henry.)
Or, I have another option for you. If you happen to have Flea Market Fancy prints that you could be convinced to part with, I would love to work out a trade with you for some of this retro ruler fabric. I also have several coordinating prints, so if you're interested, please send me a note! You can find my email address in my Blogger profile.
Speaking of sewing, I sort of left you hanging awhile back, for an unintentionally long time. So, here is another glimpse of my next project, which will hopefully soon be your next project!
I love these squeezy soft elephants and I can't wait to share the pattern with you!
Things may remain quiet here in Blogland as summer rolls around (though I hope not). The boys have just a couple of weeks of school left, and then I will be keeping them educated and entertained full time over the next few months. I'll try to pop in and at least post photos of whatever projects I'm able to squeeze in during the hours that I'm supposed to be sleeping.
Have a safe weekend, everybody!
