The “Eggli Vest”has been published in the latest “A Needle Pulling Thread” magazine Issue #17. You are able to download the pattern if you can’t get the magazine by clicking on the link above.
As Carla the publisher of the magazine indicates:
“The Eggli Vest is a one of the most versatile vest in a long time, wearing it upside down will give it a different look and it’s the same vest! A little cable for interest and structure, and I-cord cast off for that final touch of class.”
Pictures have been taken by Carla “A Needle Pulling Thread” for this magazine…..

Thanks for the wonderful opportunity
The Shawl Pin designed by my good friend Ave is a very talented wood burning Artist. I have many items like buttons, shawl /hair pins, etc available. For more info contact me through by commenting.
So off to sewing placemats and two pillows. Several of our Special Needs Adult kids are volunteering their time at a Retirement Home in Aurora.
So I thought since I can’t help on sight, I could help out too and sew up some stuff for them to sell at the TuckShop….Lots of great fabric was donated for me to use. Thanks You !
Hopefull the TuckShop will have fun selling them too. More will come soon too….Though I hope this is a good start for now. Enjoy
With this TuckShop our Special Need Adult Volunteers learn so many great things…counting money, selling items, manage to be with others, teamwork, communicating with customers, listening to others….the list goes on and not to forget having some fun too.
You should see how super easy it is to make these high in fashion “Blanket Shawls” Sooo fast and easy to sew up too.
You will need about 1.25meters by 1 meter of “flannel Creap Weave or any other wool fabric.
Straighten out the edges and sew with any fun Decorative stitch about 1,5 to 2 inches in from the edges. All around the four sides. Once you are done with that you can fray the edges or in my case cut fringes as fabric has a nice heavy thread count it was easier to cut fringes all around the edge about 1/4 inches wide.
So here is an afterthought I found the cut fringes left a lot of fray on my coat. SO next Blanket Shawl I will fray the edges ….one threat at a time! see picture below.
Perfect and so easy and less money than the store bought one and you can say ” Yes I sewed it myself”
You should see the woven wool fabric we have at “The Quilt Store” for this. I can show you too how easy they are to make.
Schaut wie einfach so eine “Schal Decke” ist zum Nähen. Sehr modisch im Moment zum Tragen.
Du brauchst nur 1,25 Meter auf 1 Meter von gewobener Wool Stoff. Schau das alle Seiten gerade sind, dann von der Kannte her etwas 4 bis 6 cm nähen mit einem dekorativen Stich rings herum damit die Fransen nicht weiter einreissen. Nächstens schneide Fransen etwas jede 5mm aus einander rings herum. Oder wenn es einfacher ist lass den Stoff sich selbst zum Fransen.
Perfekt und so einfach und Billiger, nun kannst Du sagen: ” Ja, Ich nähte es selber”
We sew quilts together and as we all know there is always leftover fabric from the quilt we just proudly finished. So no surprise I had a view pieces of flannel left from a previous quilt I put together.
Working at The Quilt Store , I get to see new fabric coming in and believe me the colours and prints are very hard to resist.
Truly believe with Clodagh our new Owner of the store, that the supplies will be gorgeous and you too will find what you are looking for your next project.
So here is what I just put together this morning. This Rag Quilt is not finished as I am looking for a border to go around the edge.
Ahhh…so today was fun at work….Wendy showed me how to sew this “Tablecloth”
And all the ladies in the “Sew Social Club” where right behind it too. You ladies are so much fun!
Well the original pattern really is for a baby blanket. So here I go…. once shown twice sewn….and many more to come.
Smile Wendy I have to stop!
In no time, I really have to say a very simple and easy to sew up project. I think it takes way longer to choose the fabric for it. But leave it to us Girls at the store “The Quilt and Yarn Store” we can help you with that dilemma too. Especially if you have thousands of meters right under our nose like I do every day at work.
