Sewing a plenty
The receiving blanket got a small linen loop to facilitate hanging. Lined with flannel and top stitched on all the sides. The tutorial can be found here.
Ute blouse from Burda. Look at the mishap :( I uttered some choice words! But the collar will cover it ... hopefully ... and I intend to put on a label at the back of the fabric to cover it. Just so that I don't get sick every time I see it. Apart from that I think it turned out pretty well. It needs armhole serging, button holes and buttons.
As usual I did the hemming by hand. I may try to use the blind hem by machine one day, we'll see. I followed this tutorial for the classic hem stitch.
And there's a great article by Carla Crim re hem width on Sew Mama Sew.
