I can’t help it… I’ve started sewing for Christmas!!!
Last month after I posted an unbundling video for Kringle’s Sweet Shop from Blend Fabrics, I couldn’t stop thinking about it or wanting to sew something with this adorable new holiday fabric collection.
These sweet little stockings were a quick and easy sewing fix, and I was able to use up some flannel and faux sherpa scraps too.
Pictures don’t really show the sparkly gold accents in the fabric. I love the gold so much that I decided to use gold metallic thread for the applique patches too.
I guess this means my stash of emergency holiday gifts has officially begun. These will be perfect for teacher gifts when I fill them with holiday candy and a gift card. :)
Let me know if you’d like me to share the template and an easy tutorial for these stockings. They are a great fat quarter friendly project.
Speaking of… you can get a FQ bundle of Kringle’s Sweet Shop here.
And now it’s time for you to show off! 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 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!
