Butterick knit drape jacket is complete except for the button closure. I made some test buttonholes on the fabric scraps as I had a concern about how a buttonhole would sew with this particular knit. Not good at all from my test. I used a washable stabilizer and still did not get good results. My sewing machine makes good buttonholes on most fabric.
I then decided I would use my SnapSource and have in my stash several nice snaps. Could not find my Size 24 Adapter for larger snaps and best for this garment. All my other size adapters were in the drawer, not this one. I took everything out of several drawers thinking I had maybe placed it in a different one. Given the fact that I have not used this particular tool in several years, I really have no clue as to where it is.
I did find a lot of other "stuff" that I probably could give away to charity or possibly a giveaway here on my blog. If anyone reading this does a lot of felting with felting machine or hand tool, leave me a comment as I have lots of merino wool yarn and other items that work well for felting projects. They need a good home.
I go online to see if JoAnn's has the Size 24 Adapter and they do online only; my plan was to go right over to my local store and get one. I ended up ordering from Amazon at a decent price and free shipping but will not get it until Tuesday. So my jacket remains a UFO until then.
Now I have to decide what to sew next. I have lots of ideas floating in my head and cannot settle on one.
While I have your attention, I realized that I have not posted photos of recent fabric purchases. Here are my latest; both of these fabrics are from Sew Much Fabric, a shop located in Texas. I purchased these in December. These items are way better than I expected. The first one is black/gray/silver metallic/golden brown stripes. The second one is full body double knit with white back ground with black squiggles. There are raised areas on the white background. I saw a lovely top and skirt review with this fabric on Pattern Review.
