As many of you know, I am one of the "Supreme's" for Stephanie of Loft Creations. We Supreme's help to test Stephanie's instructions for all of her fantastic patterns! The other day Stephanie came up with a quick project and sent it over to me. I noted that I wasn't doing anything special if she wanted me to test it right away. So I got my first Solo Supreme Testing job! She even decided we could post a sneak peek of this great project, so please go here for her peek!
I made mine using Anna Marie Horner's Innocent Crush Velveteen and some jeans fabric (more about that when I can reveal the entire project). I have to say I really love this Velveteen! When I was a teenager I made a prom dress for a neighbor's daughter out of a gorgeous green velveteen. I saw the pattern before being asked to make it, but when the fabric turned out to be Velveteen my stomach turned to moosh! How I hated sewing with that fabric and vowed to never touch it again! (The dress came out fine, but not without major headaches along the way!) Recently I was in my LQS and the gals just had to show me this new Velveteen. One of them had already worked with it and assured me it was nothing like the old stuff. So I picked up a bit of it to put away for the next Supreme project. I was so happy to be able to use it here. Once Stephanie has the pattern ready for distribution, I'll reveal the whole thing!
While we're at it, how about another sneak peek? This fabric is just one of the fabrics in my next Supreme sewing job! Doesn't it make you long for spring and warmer weather?
In case you're wondering, I'm still practicing away on Vinnie! This was one of the pantographs that came with the machine. I thought I would give it a try and was amazed at how easy and quickly I did these two rows! (By the way, that wall is a pale cream color, but for some reason the photo's always read it as a deep yellow!) I'm done with this second practice piece and am toying with the idea of putting Baby Rose on Vinnie. What do you think? Should I just throw caution to the wind and go for it?
