a Rafflecopter giveaway

Congrats!  Please send me your mailing address and I’ll have your new pouch in the mail Monday morning.   Collective-sidebar-1   Last month I shared some great news that I was a member of the Betz White Sewing Collective.  We are a group of sewists and crafters who will be taking Betz White patterns showing you how to make them your own!   This week Wendi Gratz is sharing her version of the Stitch & Stash Project Bag.  With a very unique handle setup and rounded bottom it’s great to store just about everything.  I made one last year and it holds my knitting needles and yarn.  Wendi’s added a cute applique cat on the exterior as well as custom quilting, so head over to Betz White to see this week’s project.  

Be sure to check back in on Monday. I will be reviewing a recently released new quilt book along with a finished project from the book as well. Hint….it has something to do with the Instagram photo above…..

See you Monday!

Say Hello to The Diane Tote!

Diane Tote Cover

The Diane Tote on the cover was made using Fantasia from Sara Lawson for Art Gallery Fabrics.   Say hello to my first pdf pattern, The Diane Tote!  This pattern has been a long time coming but I am just about ready to release her into the world.

I’m a little late joining in on the Selfish Sewing Week bandwagon, but I am finally done with my Jam Jar Pincushion I created from Sweetly Stitched Handmades by Amy Sinibaldi (aka Nana Company). This book is all kinds of cuteness and the projects are so her.  If you need inspiration in hand-stitching, unique gifts, and classic sewing read her blog! The pincushion was fairly easy to make.  I have never hand-stitched letters or labels so that was fun, even if {Read More}
