Sometimes you just get an idea and then go and run with it.
My latest idea popped into my head, pretty much fully formed and named.
Its LONDON CALLING and is based around some (partly constructed) jeans which have stylised Union Jack pockets.
The idea of of these is that they are part of a capsule to wear to the Stitchers Guild weekend in London at the end of July. And having thought 'I'd like some new jeans' the concept gathered steam once I thought of the pockets based on the British flag.
The concept of the pockets took a couple of versions before they were urban rather than crafty and were frankly a pain to sew on, but the effect is pretty much what I imagined so I am pleased.
I am imagining lots of red and navy tops worn with the jeans which have red pocket linings and inner waistband.
Topstitching is a pain isn't it, I keep having the wrong colour thread on the machine for the next step.
P.S. To Melissa re the overlocker, you CAN disenage the knife, as the chap at Jaycott's did to show me something when demo'ing. You have to move the needles up to the highest position and twiddle a knob.
If I can find the section in the book I'll share.
