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.
Sarah told me this could be done, so I got out a pile of scraps and played around until I did it... a snappy pouch with a tape measure closure (yes, you're gonna cut up a metal tape measure)! I love this cute little pouch because it keeps your coins in like a zipper pouch, but it doesn't have a zipper. I now have 'orders' from all my kids to make them one - they don't want my practice versions.
Ya'll know I love to sew potholders. It's the perfect way to use up fabric and batting scraps. And to practice quilting. Plus when you're done you have a beautiful and useful item. Sometimes I give them away and (I admit) a lot of the time I keep them for myself. Having a cute potholder makes cooking bearable for me. Why only bearable? Because I'd much rather be sewing. :)
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.
