It's Saturday again (already???) and I don't have very much to show off this week. My Juki is having brain surgery and I haven't had the heart to sew very much without her.
She wasn't broken really. The circuit (or whatever it is) that makes the needle disengage and stop moving when I am filling bobbins stopped working. I could still sew fine. And fill bobbins too - if I didn't mind the needle going up and down a million miles a minute while I did it.
Since this sewing machine is still under warranty, I called the help line, chatted with a technician a bit, and he explained how to remove the top cover from the head (it's actually called that). I then emailed him this photo that I took with my iPhone.
After he saw the photo, he sent me a UPS label so I could send the top part in for repair. Thank goodness he can fix it without me sending in the whole machine... it's heavy!
Today’s Friday Spotlight is this custom duffle that is a smaller size bag that works great for kids!
Wow! Can I tell you how amazed (and happy!) I am that so many of you want to sew up this little case for crochet hooks? But really, you can make this fold over case to fit so many different items that I didn't want to limit you.
Introducing the Easy Ruffle Shrug! This pattern belongs to me, I once sold it as a .pdf pattern, but now I'm offering it to my SewCanShe readers as a free download from my Craftsy Shop.
Read on to see my girls' Easter outfits.
You know what that means, there is something new today at This Little Light.
The third Tuesday (like today), is when new journaling pages and other printable are released so members of my sewing support circle can keep on planning, journaling, and more.
I'm so excited to show you the classic quilt blocks that I've been working on for July. As soon as Blend sent me this fabric, I knew that I would make the sailboat quilt block. Isn't it perfect?
In case you are catching this blog series for the first time, we're spending a year making gorgeous quilt blocks using the classic patterns and fresh modern fabrics from Anna Griffin and Blend Fabrics! So far we've made the Dutchman's Puzzle Block, the Churn Dash Block, the Friendship Star, and the Snowball and Nine Patch blocks together!
I have been wanting to sew something like this for so long! I guess I'm just really lucky that you voted for it for our March Un-Tutorials project. I'm not sure where this style of boxy tote came from, but it sure is cute, isn't it?
Finish your Chubby Lunch Tote.
My 7 year old son Connor has been nagging me for ages to sew him something for his bike. His sister's bike came with a little zipper case to carry things in, but alas, his did not. I did not feel particularly inspired by this request for a long time so other things got in the way. Finally I realized that I needed to make his bike bag pretty quick or feelings would be hurt.
It’s always so much fun for me to scroll Instagram and see something you made with one of my patterns.
Today let’s have fun checking out all the Fat Quarter Sized Fold Up Baskets that you have been sewing up!
