How's your mini quilt wall coming? I'm so excited to have mine grow this month by a very cute Halloween mini quilt... plus a bonus mini-mini-quilt!
This week I sewed up our October mini quilt pattern because I simply had to test the pattern for you. Not because I was worried there might be a problem, but because I get the designs first and I can (evil laugh)!
This one was 100% treat to sew (no tricks at all). I used pieces from my treasured Cotton & Steel scrap basket, plus my last bit of black and white pixie dot fabric. It's like square-ish polka dots and they are so cute!
Plus I used the triangles left over from making the flying geese units in the October Mini Quilt to sew up this adorable 6'' mini-mini.
How many of you are crazy as me and can't throw away scrap triangles so you'll make a mini-mini-quilt too? I think that should be a bonus challenge this month.
Watch for the free pattern for Kitten's Halloween Party coming on Monday. I'm getting everything ready and will post it then!
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.
This Patchwork Cushion was my project in the Wonderland Blog Hop from Blend Fabrics. I'm so excited to give you a tutorial for it and FYI... you can still enter win a bundle of beautiful Wonderland Fabric until Friday!
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.
I love to have little sketchbooks or art journals handy for when inspiration strikes, so that's what I decided to make. These little journals are so pretty that I'm sure they will inspire me all by themselves. Read on for a tutorial so you can make your own.
Make a strip quilt and quilt it as you go (QAYG) so by the time the quilt top is done, the back and quilting are done too, and you are ready for binding!
Sew up a cute little bag to fit inside your purse - voila! Organized purse!
