Welcome to My Red Cape. Long ago in another time my husband Jack and I lived in a little old red house. It was the stuff of dreams to us for the few years that we were there. I live there still a number of hours every day, in imagination, with old dolls and paintings and fabrics and feather trees. I draw inspiration and happiness from the memories of that space in time and share some of it here with friends who remember how to step with Alice through the looking glass and take delight in whimsies and antiquities. ~ Edyth O'Neill

Sewing from my pockets and rollups book






Almost happy fourth of July! I am looking back through a lot of photos to share here, and found these. My friend Penny has a great log house in the country and a while back a group of us met there to make sewing rollups and pockets together, sharing ideas and bits of special fabrics we had gathered for this party. (Actually two parties, a week apart!) To start with, just being a guest at Penny's lovely place with her as the best hostess I can imagine, and serving the greatest foods was a treat among her lovely antiques. And next, we all wore appropriate dress for this, including great bonnets. See Virginia! A number of projects were cut and started on the first session and then at the second session many were brought finished and more done by the end of the gathering. If you would like a copy of this book of patterns and pictures, it is still for sale on my other blog,

Enjoy these and make your own lovely fabric combinations!

  1. Hi Edyth, I enjoy your pictures so much. What a wonderful day at Pennys. The pockets and roll ups are great. My friend made me one from you book last year when I had surgery. I was thrilled. I used it to carry my meds with me from room to room while recovering at home. Thank you for letting us share this fun with you. Your friend, Debbie

  2. If only your book was out before I worked and worked on pocket and rollup patterns for myself! I may have spent more time making them instead of drawing and re-drawing patterns, lol! These are all lovely Edyth!
