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!
Scrunchies are a fun and easy sewing project that is perfect for using up scraps of all kinds. It’s also a great way to introduce girls to sewing - within just a few minutes they’ll have something fun to wear and a few new skills, too!
This tote has to be your bag for 2017! It is just the right size for a purse, plus you can carry items that you want to keep organized and grab quickly in the 6 (yes six!) exterior pockets.
I finished a Sling Bag prototype and it’s amazing! Don’t you think my husband thinks so? he he he
This was the U-Pick Project that you voted for this month, and even though I plan to adjust the pattern a bit before I share it with you, I love how this first one turned out.
I love the idea of a quilt as you go (QAYG) quilt in theory, but to tell you the truth I have been less than thrilled with just about every quilt as you go quilt that I’ve made - until now.
Half Square Triangles (HSTs) are a quiltmaker's best friend! They are a building block in lots of classic and modern quilts. Know how to calculate, cut, and sew them, and you'll be on your way to designing your own quilts!
Get dreamy, designer inspired pillowcases that will look amazing in your bedroom! This DIY sewing tutorial takes just a yard and a half of fabric per pillowcase and works great with cotton, linen, satin, or another light to medium weight fabric.
I have a 6 year old and a 10 year old (who I think qualifies as a 'tween' - she acts 17 sometimes) and they both love to wear headbands. A couple years ago I wrote a series of tutorials for making headbands with FOE (fold over elastic) and ribbon, but this time I wanted to use fabric.
It’s never too early or too late to sew for Christmas - that’s my motto all year long! Here are my 12 favorite Christmas sewing projects…
I must admit that I have made some pretty silly, downright dumb projects before. But sometimes my projects turn out so amazing that I am simply in awe. This is one of those projects. I LOVE this handy pouch!
