Hi everyone from Portugal!
I received my machine as a birthday gift and the dining room has now become my studio. I love learning a new skill & creating things which are uniquely mine. So far I have made cushions with lush trims and fringe, made a slipcover for an armchair (never again) and am now tackling my bedroom. (Duvet cover, shams, curtains, bedskirt-maybe).
My 15 year old is begging me to make her a pair of surfer shorts out of the fabric I had set aside for one set of bed shams. I keep saying ‘I don’t do clothes’, she keeps saying ‘pleeeeeaaseee’.
Patterns, McCauls, Vogue etc. are not available in Portugal. (Arggghh!), so I need directions on making these shorts (zipper, definately not gathered waist) PLUS the fabric is plaid, which I have never worked with.
Any help on finding an online pattern (preferably free) and instructions on working with plaid?
thanks, thanks, thanks
