Update: The free Merry Stars Quilt Pattern is done! I hope you enjoy making it as much as I did!
Do you remember the Merry Stars Quilt that I made two years ago? I had lots of good intentions of writing up a pattern for you, but Christmas got in the way, and then more stuff, and more stuff, and it never happened.
Well, I was recently browsing the Ink & Arrow website looking for new collections to adore, and I fell in love with this new holiday fabric called Mingle & Jingle. It instantly inspired me to make a new Merry Stars Quilt - and this time write the pattern for you! ❤️
(psst... this collection is available for purchase at Fat Quarter Shop).
But this new Merry Stars Quilt is even better than the last - it's bigger! Perfect for snuggling up and reading Christmas stories together or watching classic holiday movies.
I'll hopefully finish it up and post the pattern on Monday. Be sure to come back and check!
So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
I'm so excited that now I get to share with you the other sweet project from the One Step Quilts project panel from Lecien!
At my daughter Chloe’s high school (can you believe my baby started high school???), the lunch lines are so long that she has been skipping lunch! She’s always starving by the time she gets home because she doesn’t want to carry a big lunch bag as well as her heavy backpack - poor girl!
Sew an easy card wallet using natural cork fabric. This new textile is durable, beautiful, and easy to sew! This free pattern is a great starter project - or a great way to use up scraps.
This Patchwork Cushion is beautiful on my piano bench, but it would look awesome on any other kind of bench too!
Need a gift bag, knitting or crochet bag, lunch bag... lingerie, shoe, make-up, scrap, button, or little bag for any other reason?
Sew up a delightful Drawstring Ditty Bag with my free tutorial!
My 2-part cross body bag is a success!
It took some sewing origami to make it work, but I didn’t give up until my bag looked pretty similar in size and construction to the inspiration bag that you voted for.
Here's how I made a narrow (but still scrappy!) dog leash for our new puppy... It's so much fun to make your own pet accessories!
All that’s required to make this beautiful sunglasses case (or glasses case) is a few supplies and an embroidery machine with a 5x7 or larger hoop!
When I first showed you this cute little pouch last Saturday, one of you commented about it, calling it a ‘nappy pouch’ since that’s what you call baby diapers in the UK. I think that’s adorable!
So that’s what I’m naming it and I hope it doesn’t cause any confusion here in the U.S. - I’ll be sure to always be clear what it’s for, lol.
