Part 2 - 5th Episode Sewing Bee!

The last Challenge for this episode was to sew a Wool Poncho or Cape for a girl within              4 hours 30 minutes!

This is a drawing of the Marfy pattern I chose to use.
The cape should have paspels for the hands and a collar or a hood.
I also chose to make two paspels buttonholes.

I had to practice to make sure that I could reach the time limit.
First I made the red one, but had to speed up, and made a new one in blue as well. 

Morning coffee!

I met my lovely model Leah for the first time.

We are ready!
I had to measure the model to check if my pattern would fit.  

I bought the wool fabric at Skaar Tekstil and it's a good quality.

Our host, Christine ask me about my plans.

I'm concentrating of sewing the paspels. 
Me and Brage are working side by side.

Button holes is coming next.

The judges are looking at my project.

The cape is fitting
very well :)

My choice of lining are satin with stretch, so it was a challenge!

NRK visit me at our home.

I'm ironing a dress, and getting ready for photo shooting!

My lovely husband is 
my photographer :)

                             He said that he is proud of me ♥

I'm working with the collar. 

What do you
Time is running fast!
 The models are ready, and Monica are working on the last finish.

2 minutes to go!

I'm hand-stitching the lining to the paspel openings.

I think Leah looks fabulous in her new cape!

Tine said that the paspels where perfect.
She also said that she was serious impressed by the lining!

WOW! I was so HAPPY!
