Year before last, I had made a few turtle necks and I could not remember which pattern I had used. This winter I wanted a few mock turtles to wear as long T shirts during the winter. I made these the last 2 weeks of December. In North Texas then, the temps were up in the 60's to 70's with more of a West to South wind. Anything up here in the West or Southerly winds is usually a warmer crisper day.
The curtains and the window ledge pad I made during summer when I was feeling better from my 3 and 1/2 month cold. I think I winged it with the pad, but the curtains came from the Craftsy class, Sewing for the nursery by Vanessa Wilson, I think. I rewatch that class with every window project I do. I don't think I've reviewed any of the projects. There is a 16 inch overlay in the middle of the curtain on purpose because even though our one story house is up on a little hill, it's a flat little hill, and you can walk up to the window and look in. The windows are triple pane with a gas layer between 2 of them and that makes it hard to see through, but I still wanted the extra layer. I used stash fabrics and matched up prints and solids and made another set for our bathroom too.
