Treadlette Tuesday: Michele sewed a wedding dress!

Michele made this gorgeous silk charmeuse wedding gown for her new daughter-in-law.

Here's Andrew, her son, and his bride Katie at their August wedding!

The dress is 100% silk: sueded silk charmeuse with a china silk lining. Michele used Burda pattern 6583; the bodice is as-is, but the skirt was redrafted to have soft gathers at waist. The gown took 10 1/2 yd of 45” fabric for the dress and 6 1/2 yd of 54” fabric for the lining.

Treadlette Tuesday: a new baby quilt!

It's been all kid stuff for Treadlette Elizabeth lately! She made this baby quilt for her new nephew. (Remember last week's cottage? That was for this little guy's big sister!) 

Elizabeth sewed this simple design mostly from her stash, but found the perfect woodland backing at Treadle! She free-motion quilted it in a wood-grain pattern. 

One more detail Elizabeth loves to add is an inscription block with the new baby's name and birthdate. The Tee Juice fabric markers from our friends at Wet Paint are perfect for this!

Treadlette Tuesday: A Little Felt Cottage

Treadlette Elizabeth made this sweet felt cottage and play mat for her her 3-year-old niece.

She started with a solid cotton ground, then added our wool felt, embroidery floss, and some scraps from her stash to make the scenery and garden.

The house has little felt details everywhere and is stiffened with a layer of Peltex interfacing to make it stand up. The roof comes off to make it easier to play inside!

Done playing? Pull up the drawstrings to tidy it all away!

With wool felt, the possibilities are endless! We have 86 colors to create whatever you can dream of!
