So how about if I sew for a while - get covered in thread bits - and then turn on my camera and chat about thread? LOL!
That's exactly what I did this week in response to some comments that were left on my blog about what kind of thread should be used for different projects.
Some readers (or maybe just one persistent reader) left a bunch of comments and I decided that it would be easiest to just explain it in a video.
So here's what I think about different kinds of sewing thread and what you would use them for.

So what have you been sewing up this week? We want you to show off what you've been making. Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
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!
A sewing machine cover is an obvious place for this lovable applique...but my mind is going crazy with all kinds of other ideas of where to use it:) A T-shirt, throw pillow, hand towels...basically anywhere!
Sew a quilt top in a day with my super fast new method!
Did I mention that this is a strip quilt?
That means you’ll cut strips, sew them together, cut, sew again, and be done!
By the way, the seams will nest at every single intersection. I’m an OCD quilter and I didn’t use a single pin so that might be my favorite part, lol.
I love cloth napkins. They are classy and impressive for any meal, and your friends don't have to know that you simply ran out of paper napkins. Or stopped buying them because you have a drawerful of beautiful cloth napkins that you made yourself, right?
With the holidays coming up, these napkins made from the beautiful Sweet Siesta Collection from Blend Fabrics will be perfect. Wanna make some yourself? Read on for both the regular method and my speed method...
Organize your home (and life!) with these fabric storage baskets. They fit perfectly in Ikea cubby shelves, and fold up when not in use!
