I made two more Zola Pen Cases this week ladies... it's so much fun! The first one was a bear (really just figuring out the least fussy way to sew it was what took me forever) - but now that I have my design and techniques in place, they go together in a snap! (and they snap, lol)Read More

I have a confession to make: my family does not have handmade Christmas stockings (well, until now). We have been using a miss-matched set of store bought Christmas stockings because I never plan ahead enough to make handmade stockings. When it is time to put them up, who has time to sew them? No one ever.Read More
I know that many of you are teachers, sewing teachers even, so you might not agree with me - but it's really hard to teach a child to sew! Especially your own strong willed little girl who thinks she already knows everything about sewing because she's been watching you!Read More

Happy day! We are going to sew something really cute and fun this month...Read More
The last time I went to the airport I was carrying my beautiful Garden on the Go tote and it was so much fun to have people ask me where I got it and answer that I MADE IT! Some people recognized that my bag was handmade and they asked if I was the maker - yay!
That's why I decided to make you a list of my favorite DIY sewing project that will help you have that same fun when you travel handmade. I know you don't want me to make you wait for it, so let's go!Read More

Happy June everyone! Are you ready to add another adorable new mini quilt to your wall???
I can't remember if I told you already or not - I designed our mini quilt for June! I've been feeling inspired to sew Dresden blocks lately so that's what I made into our mini. I used fabrics from Nadya Ridgeway's latest Riley Blake fabric collection - Arbor Blossom. You can find it at Fat Quarter Shop here. :)Read More

Ever since I showed you the Card Kitty sewing tutorial that I'm working on (coming tomorrow!), you've been searching for cat fabrics to sew it up with, haven't you??? Of course you don't have to use cat fabrics, it's just a funny pun. But there are some really awesome kitty fabrics out there right now that I really think we all need in our stash. :)Read More
