Makes me (almost) want to have children. Then common sense kicks in. But still, these pics make it more tempting than I would have thought possible!

Thank you, Holdfast. Common sense is an overestimated phenomenon*. (Well, sometimes it is.)

I think most modern machines have this setting, but I'm not sure.

EXACTLY what I was thinking as well. To the OP, wonderful job and a great show of graciousness for sharing your work with us. What kind of sewing machine do you have? I've been shopping for sewing machines recently and arranging for sewing classes as well. Now you have seriously inspired me!

Now for something simpler, and no machine

Preparations for Three Pocket Squares


A very complicated pattern:




PS#1: White/beige linen






PS#2: Lightblue puppytooth cotton










PS#3: Purple/white cotton (see lining of 'Zegna coat')








These will take some time, since yet another project will go first from now.
