Today as I was clearing away space on my sewing table so I could make room for some finished items (I know that sounds bad! I just have so many different projects going right now)…
My daughter Cadie asked me why I had her new little purse (the pink Triple Zip Bag) and other favorite things on my sewing table.
I told her that I was getting ready to make a studio chat video.
Then (without being asked) she started arranging all the items neatly the way she thought they looked good.
So I had an idea… and I asked Cadie if she wanted to film the studio chat for me!
The video is so cute… and totally unscripted.
Either she has been watching my videos on YouTube or some things are unwittingly passed down from one generation to the next.
Because everyone says she sounds just like me!!! The video is above and shown on YouTube here.
If you want to make the things she is showing you in the video, here are the links:
Thank you to everyone who asked when I was going to make another studio chat… It would have been today if it weren’t for Cadie stealing the show, he he… but I’m sure you’ll see me again very soon!
You may have noticed that I've been doing a lot of straight line (or wiggly straight line, lol) quilting lately... it's true! So here are 4 easy variations on straight line quilting that I think YOU will love.
Sew a row of pockets to keep extra things off your nightstand and organize your bedside!
I’ve got more amazing reader projects to show you… I don’t think you know just how much I love seeing the things that you make with my free sewing patterns and tutorials. Thank you so much for posting them to Instagram to show me!
I slipped a dowel through the quilt sleeve and in just a few minutes, it was up! I took these photos immediately after, so the wrinkles hadn't come out yet. But they are gone now, a few days later.
Dress up a plain binder with an easy padded cover!
This DIY binder cover makes your binder so much better with a large outside pocket and two inside pockets for pens, pencils, or scissors.
I'm so excited to offer you my first machine embroidery design! As many of you know, I recently bought a Janome Memory Craft 14000 Sewing and Embroidery machine from SewingMachinesPlus.com and I love it (see my unboxing post here). I find myself torn between sewing and embroidery - I can't get enough of either!
Can you guess which project won the vote?
I'm so excited to share with you this new little clutch bag pattern! I've been loving a whole lot of little bags that I see on Pinterest - especially those that have a zipper compartment on the inside - so I decided to incorporate a little zipper pouch inside this little bag.
