Smart Shopper

Finished my Smart Shopper pattern by Sweet Treasures.  Great pattern.  Not sure if I would add both extra muslin pieces.  It made it really thick.  It is nice how it stands up though and you can’t see the inside fabric.

I ended up having to use a 100/16 titanium Topstitch needle when I did the French seam.  A great learning experience with the French seam.  You have to do the bottom like you’re putting on binding.  You get to the bottom where you get to 1/4″ before the end, but don’t go over.  Then you start the other side.  Tricky the first time, but totally doable.  I made the French seam larger than probably normal, but it was easier to go wider with such thick seams.
