Yes! I Made This!

Last week's American Sewing Expo in Novi, MI is now stitched in our memories.  SCHMETZ, Islander Sewing, Junk Jeans People and Ghee's each sold Yes I Made This! buttons to benefit Dress for Success, a charity that helps low income women prepare for the job market by supplying appropriate work clothes.  Buttons were $2 each.  Each buyer was then photographed with the SCHMETZ "Super" Needle.  Yes, our own red carpet event with YOU the sewing star!  Before posting our button sales . . . .  and before I figure out how to post over 200 photographs, here are a few favorite garments to tease you.  Enjoy!

Stunning Reversible YoYo Jacket
based on a Detroit Free Press pattern by Jocelyn Brown found in the June 2010 ASE Newsletter.

Button! Button!  Who's got the button?
An ingenious use of old buttons stitched between scarf front & back!

A show stopper patchwork jacket - bright and cheery... just like its creator! 

Clever fall maple leaves of leather & assorted fabrics
 sandwiched between the tote and a shimmering exterior.

Stripes and polka dots. 
Wait there's more! This is a stunning reversible vest with a cute back pack.

Chipper Tote!
Stop!  Don't throw your potato chip bags away! Tote um! 

Tadaa! Rosette Wool Felt Pillow Kit made in class!

Photo close-ups of each project will be shown in later postings.  Thanks everyone for s...e...w... enthusiastically participating in Yes! I Made This!
