Welcome back to Friday Spotlight! I’m so excited to highlight Jeni Baker, a pattern designer that I admire so much - and who has been sewing up a storm with my favorite sewing pattern …the #10 Caddy and Mini Caddy.
Oh and I have video course for this pattern now - scroll down to the bottom to read more.
Jeni’s blog In Color Order is one of the blogs that inspired me to start quilting.
I’ve seen her work in all the best quilting magazines and books, and she has her own patterns and books too.
I’ve been following her on Instagram for years, and that’s why I was so ecstatic to see her versions of my caddy pattern in her feed.
She keeps making more and more caddies. Thank you Jeni!!!!
Make sure you visit In Color Order and show her some love. 💕
And now for the video course:
So many of you asked, so I finally did it! I created a video course for the #10 Caddy Pattern. I’m going to share all the details in my Show Off Saturday blog post tomorrow, but if you really can’t wait you can read all about it (and even sign up) here.
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!
Did you know that animal shelters often use small quilts or blankets (called cage comforters) in the animals' cages to provide a soft bed and a sense of security? It's a great way to use up leftover pieces of fabric and batting and make something to help our furry friends at the shelters. It's kinda funny how I learned about this project...
You had 3 fun ideas to choose from… a clever drop in tote bag organizer, a modern fanny pack/sling bag/hip pouch (or whatever they call them these days!), or a comfy bed for your favorite pet.
Can you guess which project won the vote?
I decided to sew myself a new little card wallet using all the same steps that I share in my free Designer Zipper Bags Video Course.
I also decided to use my serger machine for quilting and embellishing the sides of the pouch and for finishing the seams. A serger isn’t necessary for this project, but I had fun using it.
The Huddle Quilt is a fast and easy pattern that’s perfect for large prints because it makes them the focal point. Plus there is plenty of negative space to let the eye enjoy your favorite fabrics even more.
