Shirred Linen Skirt with GREAT Pockets + a Couple of Pleats

Not quite done.  But, impatient. 

Details

Pattern:  Based on instructions found at Running With Scissors’ (RWS) blog - tinyurl.com/shirredskirtwithpockets.  Terrific instructions and photos.  I added one front and two small back pleats for better fit, the rest is all her.  Ms. RWS based this skirt on one that she saw at Anthropologie, I can totally see that.  The pockets take the skirt from serviceable to adorable.

Fabric:  100% grey linen from Joann’s.

Elastic:  Elastic thread for shirring and along very top 1/2” woven elastic.

Happy Chubby Pincushion Caddy

I love this thing. 

Details

Pattern:  Based on Anna Maria Horner’s Pincushion Caddy project in her Seams to Me book; however, basically followed texasfreckles.com’s supplemental instructions

Fabric:  All Anna Maria Horner, from Drawing Room, Garden Party & Good Folks lines.

Interfacing:  Pellon 809 Decor Bond.  This worked very well, sturdy & is iron-on bonded one side.
