Today was a cut-and-pin day. This typically means cutting the stabilzer and silks into my purse pattern. Before that can be done, however, I wash and air dry each scarf and then steam to remove any wrinkles. Above is one of the silk scarves in a gathered style. Can't wait to sew it together! While some of the scarves dried I got started prepping buttons to create more magnets (and push-pins as requested by my friend Liza!). Check out the first set I made a few months ago here.
On a side note - I'm SUCH a proud auntie of an adorable pitbull, Pepper, that I had to post this! My sister took this picture of me and Pepper frolicking in Malibu after my mom's 50th b-day breakfast atGladstones (highly recommend their "Hangtown Fry" plate!!!)
