Day 5 .... Handwork - * While You Wait Week *

Our  'Handwork   While You Wait Week' wraps up with a handy tutorial for a Hexagon Needle Case and be sure to check out the tutorials offered every day  this week at

I am still working on a large batch of pillowcase dresses, without the pillowcases now. LOL   I am working toward my goal of 50 dresses. I had to resort to yardage to meet this goal.  I am now reaching the dreaded final step of making ALOT of bias tape and sewing that to the dresses. Pictures later,  quite a bit later!

I hope you all had a great week. We have a beautiful September weekend coming up here in the Midwest.

  1. Can you use pre-made bias tape for the dresses? I have packs of Wrights Double fold bias tape (the kind labeled quilt binding)in different colors. I would be happy to sent to you. The packs say 7/8 inches wide and contain 3 yards (the standard extra wide ,double fold bias tape is 1/2"). I have 6 Oyster, 3 Old Rose, 1 purple, 1 Sea Green, 1 Seafoam Green, 1 Medium Blue, 2 Black, and 1 Berry. I have 1 pack of red that is opened, but I measured and none of it has been cut. I think I bought all of it when the local Woolworth's was going out of business.
    If you can use it, I would be thrilled to mail it to you.
