OWOP (One Week, One Pattern) starts in 12 days’ time! Thanks to Tilly and the Buttons we are all going to have loads of fun with our favourite patterns.
I was going to do a mad rush of sewing up versions of V1247, until Tilly and Handmade Jane pointed out that would be a) tiresome for me and b) entirely unnecessary as I already own multiple versions of the Sorbetto. Also, some may say cramming in loads of new sewing is not really in the spirit of Tilly’s original impulse to help us celebrate those patterns we’ve gone back to time and again.
So I agreed to refrain from furious sewing, but I couldn’t resist running up one last Sorbetto, pictured above.
My Happy Sewing Place has a photo of the EXACT MOMENT I bought this fabric on the Edinburgh Ceilidh:
The polka dot bias tape is too cute for words, great quality, comes in multiple colours and was posted in record time from Ebay supplier, Beans Beads.
Now I’m thinking I really need a Sorbetto in a solid colour, because my collection is entirely made up of prints…
What do you think? Can I justify one last make?
If you’re wondering how I store my multiple Sorbettos, here’s the answer:
Cascading hangers! The invention of a genius! I bought these a while ago from Amazon, after bemoaning my horrendous clothes storage situation. My readers came up with loads of great suggestions, including these. Out of all the money I spent on storage solutions (some more useful than others), these cheap hangers have far and away been the biggest success.
So, I think I’m nearly set for Countdown OWOP! This is going to be soooo much fun. Thanks, Tilly! Anyone London-based fancy meeting for a celebratory cocktail on the last day Friday 30 March, in our favourite versions of our favourite patterns? If there are enough of us, I’ll reserve us a space somewhere in Central London. You know what to do – leave a comment!
