|Easter sewing FTW.|
schmeebot told me recently that I had made her 21 Pacific Moons so far, that makes the ones I just finished 22 through 25. I'll show you 22, 23, and 24 now, but I'm going to hold off on revealing 25 until after schmeebot has received it. I tried a little experiment on it. I think it worked, but it is really for the wearer to judge. Plus ... 25! I have never sewn 25 of anything before, so the quarter-centennial of Pacific Moons should have its own moment in the ... moonlight I guess.
For these three, there were no new tricks up my sleeve, so there's nothing to add with regard to the making. They're all Ikea home decor fabric, with quilting cotton yoke and pocket facings. (Well, one has home dec fabric pocket facings ... didn't have a good mostly-white scrap handy.)
First up ... "Onion Rings". I think Ikea intended flowers but that is what they look like to me. Bee fabric I've used before for the waistband facing, and I got my rings matched across the back seam. Go me.
And finally, "Leaf". No cute name for this one. I did have fun with the layout though. schmeebot says this one is her favorite of the three. No picture of the inner fabric because at the time I took the picture I hadn't sewed it down yet, but it's the same ladybugs fabric I used on the blue skirt I made in December. How boring, but it worked best out of what I had.
For those who celebrate, Happy Easter! I love the colors of Easter, and the opportunity to celebrate Spring. Which has finally arrived, it seems. We dyed eggs in the backyard, while the dog begged us to go back inside. Some dog.
