Show Notes: Episode 32

Finished Objects: 

Faux Bernstein Shawl
Branches and Buds Pullover

Sewing Projects:
Housedress (Simplicity Pattern #1080)
I made it pretty much as is, except that I had to cut the body of the dress in half at a different spot to accommodate my fabric-buying mistake.

Leggings (Simplicity Pattern #8422) 
I had to make a size Small, even though my measurements are firmly in between a Med & Large on the pattern's fit chart
I also omitted the elastic completely, shortened the pelvis, and shortened the legs on the darker blue pair.  

Projects of the Future:
A design project using Sweet Georgia Cashluxe Fine
Yarn purchased for Ă‰milien: Feza Organically Dyed Harvest

I show off a couple new pom pom options:
Tiny Tufts
and Petite Pom Poms

I also answer a couple questions, and recommend a couple remote shutter releases.  The DSLR one I have doesn't seem to be available anymore, but here are a few similar options.  The iPhone-compatable remote I have is this one.

Show Notes: Episode 31

Today's podcast includes the following-

Finished Projects:

Snowbelle Trapper Hats - Adult Size and Baby Size

Meowf Hat

[Pom Poms for both hats can be found on Etsy here.  If you want small-size pom poms like the ones hanging from the strings on the Snowbelle Trapper Hat, just use the "message to seller" button to send a special request.)

Wishmaker Mitts

Shawl Inspired by Bernstein (but I found the pattern too difficult to follow because of the language barrier.  If you speak German though, all the successful German project pages lead me to believe that the German version of the pattern is very usable!)

And, I talk about:

An Easter Basket Scavenger Hunt

Spoonflower - specifically the sampler pack of all their different fabrics

Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs. (The album can be downloaded on iTunes)

using iMovie to put edit together home videos & photos

And I'm wearing my Boho Blush Shawl.

Thanks for watching, and I'll see you in a couple weeks!
