The Shirt Skirt - Sew Like My Mom

Good Morning my dears!! Today, I have a very special someone I'd like to introduce to you. Her name is Olive the Ostrich, and this is her gear. The Olive wristie, complete with changing mat. There's enough room in the wristie for the changing mat, a couple of diapers, some diaper creme, and a credit card. The changing mat opens up to this 25X25" flower, and folds down to this 5X7" rectangle and velcro closes. So you want to make some Olive gear of your own you say? Well then. Let me tell you what you need to do. First, I'm pretty sure that Laurie is going to have some Olive gear fabric sets here, which will contain all the Olive the Ostrich fabric you will need (and yay!! There will be leftovers for scraps! My favorite part!) So go on over and order that. And then..... follow these steps: To make your own Olive wristie and changing mat, this is what you will need: 2/3 yard Olive the Ostrich fabric fq heart flower fabric fq stripe fabric fq millefiori fabric 3.5" velcro 2 yard package of iron on vinyl metal clip part of a lanyard 3 inches cotton tape 26"X26" flannel contrasting thread petal template (cut out A & B and join at the dashed line to make the petal) wristlet body template wristlet flap template All seams are 1/4" unless otherwise specified. When zig-zag'ing edges, make sure the "zag" doesn't go more than 3/8" into the project. When using laminated fabrics, I don't use pins since the pins will put holes in the laminate. I didn't feel the need to use anything to keep the fabrics in place, but if you need to, use a spray baste to hold the pieces together. Instructions: 1. Cut your pieces: cut 2 petals each from the heart flower, stripe and millefiori fabrics. cut one 6" circle from the Olive the Ostrich fabric for center of changing mat cut one 26"X26" piece of Olive the Ostrich fabric and one of flannel cut 2 wristlet bodies each from the Olive the Ostrich (lining) and stripe fabrics (outside) cut 1 flap from each of the heart flower (lining) and millefiori fabrics (outside) cut the velcro into a 3" and a 1/2" piece cut a 2"X3" piece of strip fabric for velcro closure on mat cut a 4"X3" piece of heart flowers for pocket cut...

Olive the Ostrich and her gear [a tutorial]

Firstly, welcome to all you Noodleheads! And thank-you to Anna for asking me to participate in the "spice up your kitchen" week. For those of you who aren't sure what I'm talking about, you can go here: and check out all the other great tutorials Anna has lined up with a few of the most amazing seamstresses/crafters out there in blogland! So let's get started with the tutorial for how to make some really stylin' cloth napkins so you can kiss those paper ones goodbye! What you will need: eight 12.5 inch square pieces of linen in the color you prefer. I always prewash, since linen tends to shrink a lot! {Just as a side-note, I order all my linen from The weight I used is the IL019 which seems to be a great weight for most home-dec type sewing. They have great colors, the fabric is 54" wide, and the price is awesome. And if you happen to place an order with them, if you use the coupon code: "collection", you can get 10% off your order.} 1 yard and 20 inches of quilting cotton cut into (16) 3.5 inch strips. (8) 65 inch pieces of embroidery floss (I used all six strands of each length.) a half and quarter ruler (this was really handy to have, but not absolutely necessary.) What you will do: 1. Using your half and quarter ruler (or cutting mat that has 45 degree markings) cut 32 pieces from your quilting cotton strips that are 45 degrees on each end and 12.5 inches long on the shorter of the long ends. These will be your edging pieces. 2. With right sides facing, line up one of the edging pieces with one side of a linen square and starting 1/4 inch in, sew the edging piece to the linen, backstitching at the beginning and the end. Repeat this step for all four sides of the linen. 3. Now, line up the 45 degree ends of your edging fabric with right sides together and starting at the stitch from sewing the edging to the linen, stitch the two edgings together. (This stitch may be exactly 1/4 inch from the fabric edge, but if not, just make sure to stitch evenly down.) Repeat for all four corners. 4. Open your napkin up and iron all the corner seams to one side. 5. Now turn in and...
