You voted for me to sew my own version of this tote and I did. Then a bunch of you asked me to add a zipper. I was hesitant. I was like, really? That's more work and it will ruin the shape of the bag. But it didn't ruin anything!Read More

Eek! Don't you just love everything that Heidi over at Fabric Mutt sews? I have been a fan of hers for so, so long! So I was super happy when she agreed to design a mini quilt for us and our SewCanShe Monthly Mini Quilts series. I gave her free rein to design anything she wanted because I didn't want to get in the way of her creativity... and look at the adorable Candygram quilt she designed!Read More
I remember my mom taking my brother and I trick or treating on Halloween when we were was 6 and 7 and collecting lots and lots of smarties and dum-dums. Then afterwards I would trade with my brother to get all of his smarties in exchange for my dum-dums. Because smarties make you smart and dum-dums make you dumb, of course! Fortunately that's not true because he turned out to be a brilliant engineer.Read More

Happy February! Winter is almost over, friends... time to sew for spring! Can you believe we're on our 14th month of UnTutorials? Un-Tutorials are those sneaky pins that lead you to believe there's a tutorial behind them - and then there's not. Or maybe there's a bunch of pictures with no real instructions that you can understand. Those kinds of pins are so common that I gave them a name and started a Pinterest board.Read More
I've had so much fun lately watching the new Alice in Wonderland movies with my kids (psst.... Alice Through the Looking Glass is free to watch on Netflix right now). And have you noticed a whole bunch of Wonderland-themed fabric in the stores too? This collection (Girl's Story from Lecien) is printed on beautiful natural colored linen/cotton fabric, which makes it perfect for sewing tote bags, aprons, home decor items, and clothing (plus quilts).Read More
When I graduated from high school and was heading off to my first year of college, a sweet lady from our church gave me a hand-tied quilt to take with me. I was so grateful - there were so many things I needed to get for my first dorm room. On lonely nights I often thought of her and the love and support she gave me in the form of a handmade quilt.Read More
You know that feeling when you see fabric at the thrift store or a yard sale or somewhere and you don't need it, but it's so pretty and a really good deal??? I saw these two beautiful rolls of Michael Miller twill (60'' wide!!!) at my favorite thrift store a couple months ago for $20 each. The fabric was clean and soft and even smelled new. But I was shopping with a non-sewing friend at the time and I was embarrassed to buy it since she knows I already have a room full of fabric and I couldn't think of an immediate project that needed 30 yards of designer star fabric. So I passed on it.Read More
