When I started making videos I swore I would never be one of those people who showed themself sick, with no makeup, and telling stories about how they got that way.
But here I am. Let’s blame it on the percocet.
Update: I may seem all sunshine and tulips in the video, but joking about the use of a controlled substance (even if it was prescribed) doesn't seem funny to me anymore after this happened. What do you think?
At least my friend Emily brought me tulips the night before so there was something pretty in the video next to me. :)
Now I’m so happy to tell you that I’m home in my own bed with my hubby and kids taking care of me - yay!
I hope I have enough strength to venture up the stairs to my sewing room soon. I can hear it calling me.
In the meantime, 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.
Our Monthly Mini Quilt Pattern this month is a new classic! I'm so in love with the Ladybug Liberty Mini Quilt that was designed for us by Fat Quarter Shop! Fat Quarter Shop is also giving away a $50 Gift Certificate with this month's free mini quilt pattern...
I LOVE to use the walking foot on my sewing machine (also known as an even-feed foot). I've gotten questions over the years about why I am using it for one project or another. So here's the (kind-of) long version if you want me to share all... Then I'll list the situations where I like to use it most.
Merry Christmas SewCanShe fans! I've been saving a present for you! Last year when I was putting my proposal together for Just For You, I wrote this Travel Jewelry Case Pattern. We figured out a few months later that it wasn't going to fit in the book, so I decided to save it for Christmas. And Christmas is here!
I'm so excited to finally share the Zippie Clippie pattern with you... this pouch has so many purposes that I'll never be able to count them all. Clip one on a backpack with pencils and school supplies. Clip another to your bag to hold your phone. Then sew another to hold your hand sewing kit while on road trips!
The Variable Star is a classic quilt block that has been around for over 100 years. It has also been called the Sawtooth Star and the Evening Star. This fun block lends itself to so many versions. Since the center is a square, you can fill that square with patchwork, fussy cut fabric, or more stars (like I did)!
