Yes, I’m sewing!

So “vents” are apparently slits. By process of elimination and also by process of tearing out my hair for hours, I’ve deciphered my first garment pattern.tmp_30304-20170116_2252001827235078

Special thanks to YouTube and the rest of the interwebs for helping me unlock the jargon of “Simplicity” New Look 6312.

Ok, I admit, I chose the wrong pattern for my first project, what a newbie, indeed! But it came out not too shabbily!

Next I made not one, but TWO little zipper pouches. Again, YouTube gets my gratitude and praise: The Crafty Gemini has some great tutorials.

My first zippered pouch, made using my own fabric design as well (Koi Pond)

Second pouch, made with fusible this time instead of quilting

What to make next? I have a few precious swatches of my own Spoonflower designs, but they are on the smallish side. The tutorial hunt begins anew!
