Who knows what that title is? Anyone? Answer at the end. You had to have been an 80’s nut to know it. And boy was I an 80’s nut. Big hair, MTV watching, CDs blaring, party girl, was I.
What it means today is, I have another NCW on the make. This one is for my sister and involves this cute fabric. To place the motifs in the right spots I had to do a bit of fussy cutting. Not easy when you have limited cutting space, I gotta get my 8 foot table in this small room! Not sure where it would go, but I will figure it out. I had to buy a yard of this fabric since it was an online purchase but only needed about a 1/4 yard. So I have a lot left over to use for other projects. Yay!!
I spent a day prepping all the pieces and now just need a free day to start the construction. So excited to get this made! I went with a chartreuse green for the card slot pockets and a teal for the zipper pocket linings. The outside of the zipper pockets is fussy cut turtles.
The zippers, as you can see in all their greenness, will contrast well with the turtle and teal fabrics on the zipper pockets. At this point all the interfacings are ironed on and the card slot pocket is done. The real sewing will start soon!!
Answer: The Dream of the Blue Turtles was a CD put out by Sting in 1985. I was able to see him in concert when they performed this album. It was a spectacular show! I also saw him with his Soul Cages tour, and then his Mercury Falling tour. Now I wouldn’t pay a nickel to see him in concert. He’s gone off the deep end. But oh how I loved the Police and Sting through the 80’s and 90’s. Great memories.
