We have another clear winner this month... among the three Un-Tutorials I offered to write a pattern for you wanted...
I can't tell you how much Cadie loves the little tee shirt dresses that I made her. And they were so, so, easy!
My kids started talking about spring break this week. Really? Is it already that time of year?
They want to go camping. With the popup camper that we got last year. And I remembered that the last time we used it I took down all of the curtains, stuffed them in a bag, and put it in the closet.
What a wonderful surprise for me to see someone using and enjoying one of my tutorials! She even said they were like potato chips...you can't have just one:)
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.
Now I'm asking you to help me pick one Un-Tutorial each month that I'll write a tutorial for. I adore a sewing challenge, so I know this will be fun. I chose three Un-Tutorials from our Pinterest board and its time for YOU to vote for which one I will sew.
I love this quilt block. It has clean and simple lines and a fun geometric pattern that makes it both classic and modern. Plus it's perfect for fussy cutting. Check out how I fussy cut flowers out of the gorgeous Lottie collection from Blend Fabrics. Read on for a Double Diamonds Quilt Block tutorial and a sewalong!
I finally sewed for my Cadie again. I've been so busy with other stuff and I know she was starting to feel left out. But when Blend Fabrics sent me some of their new line Lolly to play with, I knew she would love me to make something for her.
This weeks winner is Vicki from Dotty Jane Designs. She won the most click with this gorgeous seasons medallion...
This was the most fun I've had this year! I loved the challenge of sewing up a new project with only a picture to refer to. You voted for me to sew and write a tutorial for the bed pockets in this picture... so here it is.
Are you as organized as you want to be? I am... NOT! To tell the truth, I have actually been that mom who forgets about early release and picks her kids up from school an hour late. :(
But I have a secret that helps me stay a lot more organized than I have been in the past and definitely helps me to be a more consistent blogger: I use a planner.
Irons are the best, aren't they? There's nothing like a hot iron to make your sewing project look amazing, even with a few imperfections. This little hottie is my new favorite.
It's Show Off Saturday here... time to post a picture of what you've been sewing this week.
I feel like I finally got my creative groove back this week. A bunch of sewing projects that were floating around in my head became real.
