I started on another “secret” project this week. In my mind, this one was going to whip up fairly quickly, but I wound up making a few changes along the way and added a few elements so it’s taken a bit longer to put together. One of those elements? Piping.
Originally, I was going to skip adding this element all together, but ‘slept on it’ and realized, it was needed. Buying pre-made piping is ridiculously expensive ($15\yard for the size I wanted, but not the color…. and I needed 6 yards!), so I wound up making my own. I know, making piping is easy….. and now that it’s finished, I’m glad I went for it. Now to complete this project – I’m totally excited to use it, too.
You know what else I’m excited about? NEW Jalie patterns! They have been previewing their new releases on their Facebook page for a couple of weeks and I’ve been dying to get them ever since. Today they opened up pre-orders and I ordered about half of them…. I figure I have about 2 weeks for them to release and be shipped to my house to decide what I’m making first (I am seriously leaning toward the Marie-Claude Raglan Pullover or the Charlie Bomber Jacket, though).
