I love this magazine Molly Makes .  Each month they enclose a small project with the supplies to complete it in the magazine.  It only took maybe 20 minutes to make this little card wallet.  A quick and easy little project.

Cat News Skirt

 My daughter is a huge cat fanatic.  She loves to wear cat themed clothing.  I have had this newsprint cat fabric in my stash for a few years.  Also the cat comics fabric.  We have had the idea to make a skirt with it since she is a Journalism major.  I used Simplicity 1917 for the pattern. I made the skirt following the view D exactly as the pattern showed.  It was a very easy skirt pattern to sew up.  I used her measurements to pick a size and it fit her perfectly without any changes.  The skirt is softly pleated and hit her about knee length.  She likes it and I am happy that I got to make something for her.

Spring Linen Jacket

 It seems I have been making a lot of jackets lately.  This one is  McCall's 6516.   It is a very draped loose fitting jacket.  My fabric is a aqua linen with a rectangle design woven into it.  I love the color.  I haven't had a chance to wear this jacket yet as it has mostly been to cold here.  But I think this will be an easy to wear casual jacket.
