Okay, I know that 'Modular Hanging Organizer' is the most boring name that I could possibly come up with but the amazing thing about this latest sewing tutorial is that you sew each pocket separately (hence the 'modular' part) before sewing them all together in a column (heck, you could even sew them in a horizontal row if you wanted). And each pocket front can be made with fabric, mesh, or vinyl - how cool is that??? So you have the opportunity to customize this organizer to fit your needs!
There is progress in my new new upstairs sewing studio! This week we removed the carpet and started prepping the sub-floor for bamboo. It hasn't arrived yet, so it was the perfect time to paint!
I've said it before, but I really believe that Christmas in July was invented by sewists & quiltmakers because now is when we start our holiday projects! Otherwise they would never be done in time, lol.
There's another fabulous and must-have accessory in my car thanks to you! You voted for me to figure out how to sew this hanging organizer... and here it is!
Summer is flying by and I can't let another shopping trip go by without showing you this amazing Hobo Bag pattern from Lecien fabrics!
My sewing stuff is all crammed in a small room right now, so while I wait for my bamboo flooring to arrive, I decided to test out some paint colors for my big upstairs studio. These are two very pale shades of blue-gray.
Vicky from Vicky Myers Creations shared her clever creation, this cable caddie and it won the most clicks this week!
You must like having a tidy car, lol! I do too but with 4 kids it never lasts longer than a day. But just like in April (the Car Diddy Bag), the pin that most people want me to write a tutorial for is something to control the car clutter.
We are moving this weekend! I'm so excited because eventually I will have a huge beautiful (I hope) sewing studio. But this week I was forced to pack up and say goodbye to the sewing room that I have been using for the past 3 years.
Damjana from AppleGreen Cottage shared her post with all the tips and tricks you need to make your own Felt Food Party in a Basket!
Un-Tutorials are those sneaky pins that lead you to believe there's a tutorial behind them - and then there's not. Those kinds of pins are so common that I gave them a name and started a Pinterest board.
And now it's time for YOU to vote for the Un-Tutorial that I'll solve (aka write a new tutorial for) this month!
