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.
Sew up some pretty kitchen towels that won’t slip off the bar! They have a pretty tie that holds them on, plus a cute ruffle on one end.
These DIY embellished towels were sewn from inexpensive bar towels, plus 1/4 yard of fabric each.
This year my daughter asked me to make her a Cinderella Costume for Halloween. I must admit that it made me think of this funny sewing meme I saw in my Instagram feed...
I’ve been working on another fun Christmas project and it’s making me so happy.
It’s a quilted Christmas Tree wall hanging!
These tote bags are so much fun to make... I just can't stop. They are the perfect way to bust through your scrap collection. My kids have claimed the smallest one for taking snacks to school, crayons and paper to church, etc. I already gave the largest one away to a friend. And I am keeping the medium sized one for myself. Those are almost the last of my Cotton + Steel XOXO scraps and I am excited to show them off.
Every quilt you make needs a label.
Years down the road who will remember who made that quilt? Who did they make it for? And when? You might not even remember.
Plus if you decide to show a quilt, it will definitely need a label to ensure you get it back. Quilt labels are easy to make and there are lots of different ways. It's basically a piece of fabric with information on it that is attached to the back of the quilt, usually in a bottom corner.
You can use these small clear bags to organize sewing supplies, keep your makeup, or carry small bottles through the airport.
They are so fast and easy to sew, you won’t be able to stop!
Three little elves have lost their mittens and can't go out and play! Okay, I have four little elves running around here and I am being forced to think beyond Christmas a little bit here because we'll be taking a road trip to the north so my children can see snow for the first time. The poor things have no idea what they are asking for.
Voting for our October U-Pick project ended yesterday. Do you want to see which project won?
I probably should have given this quilt a better name. On the day I made it the design reminded me of Candy Corn! It’s a fall quilt for me, but it doesn’t have to be. I’m sure it would make an adorable Christmas quilt too.
Let me go re-make it on EQ8 and see…
