When I was planning my little 'Back to School with Me!' series of book reviews and giveaways, this was the one book that I wanted so badly that I wrote to Fat Quarter Shop (who published it) and asked them if I could include it. They said yes!
I must admit that I was a little wary of this project when Cadie's teacher first asked me, but it turned out to be really fun and a lot easier than I expected. So if your kid's kindergarten or first grade teacher ever asks you about making chair pockets for the class, say yes - I'll show you how!
This is a Patch Quilt - NOT a patchwork quilt, lol. Earlier this year my sister in law gave me my brother's patch collection and asked me to make a quilt with it for his birthday. Apparently, he's been collecting patches from every state he visits (plus Canada) as well as others like 'Elvis.'
We all have our favorite little tips and tricks that help us save money, time, and stretch out the time we can wear our favorite shirt:)

I'm starting it off with an AMAZING book...
This post has been in the works for a long, long time. Every time I hear one of my sewing friends say,
'Oh, I couldn't make that. I can't sew with knits'
I just want to pull my hair out! Knits are one of my favorite fabrics to sew with...
Yesterday I was in need of a thank you gift - quick! Luckily I had just been chatting on the phone with Heather of The Sewing Loft and she mentioned this little free pattern she recently released. It was perfect.
I'm thinking perfect size, just the right amount of pockets, amazing fabric...this little number could take me anywhere:)
Good Morning & Welcome to our second installation of Create This Look on SewCanShe. This time my inspiration was the "Debut Dance-Off Dress In Floral" from ModCloth. This dress is so pretty. I love vibrant the colors in the chiffon.
All year long Sarah Markos and I are inviting our favorite bloggers to sew projects from our book Just For You as part of our 'Just For You Sewlebrity Sewalong.' This week the lovely Nicole Young of Lillyella is showing off two versions of the Topstitched Belt that she made.
Do my kids feel my love as they sleep warm and snuggled up under a quilt handmade by me?
Does wearing handmade clothes make happier kids because they feel our love stitched into every seam?
How about some cute Japanese clasp purses... aren't these adorable? The kits for these were sent to me by my friend at Zakka Workshop. I'm so happy that they are making the pattern and hardware for these cute little projects available together in a kit.
