Fleece Scarf Tutorial from Patchwork Posse

This fleece scarf tutorial will show you how to quickly make a scarf. Plus, with a loop to keep it on and in place! Adjustable size for kids to adults.
Finding a scarf for the kids is kind of hard.  
There are a lot to choose from, but they fall off, are too long….the list goes on.
Oh, and then they don’t wear them.
Using fleece {in totally cool prints}, adding a little loop {so it won’t fall off} is a great solution.
In addition to that, it’s only 4 steps and super quick to make ...

Rattata Stuffie from Becca's Crazy Projects

I pick up every Free Pattern Friday release sew desu ne? hosts. Because I like to be prepared for any stuffie emergency. This isn't an emergency, but I did want to use one of their patterns to make a Pokemon stuffie of Rattata.

I grabbed some purple fleece and set up the embroidery machine to do some fun stitching. The first stitch-out was fine, but poorly aligned, so I had to stitch it out again. Thank goodness I still have fleece. If you want to get into making stuffies, I highly recommend their collection of tutorials. Great stuff!
I ...

Fleece Vest from Becca's Crazy Projects

I ran across a free pattern on Purl Soho for a quilted wool vest. I've been playing with the idea of  quilting one up with some fancy quilting, but then I got the crazy idea to make one using two layers of fleece.

Thankfully, I had enough fleece in my collection I could get one cut and stitched up. I used about 1 yard of the colorful print and the same amount of solid black.
The edges are bound with a narrow strip of fleece held in place with a nice cover stitch finish. It isn't perfect, but ...

Quest for Warmth from Becca's Crazy Projects

I have stacks and stacks of fleece fabric. Some I purchased, some was gifted to me by Aunt Betty (see this great video from Professor Pincushion about Aunt Betty).

A friend said they were making a ruana and I wanted to join in. This seemed a great opportunity to use some of that fleece. I used this pattern from McCall's to get me started. After that, well, I just went my own way.

I had three yards of this fun print in my collection. It was more than enough for this project. The pattern calls for cutting the back ...

Pattern Hack Pokemon from Becca's Crazy Projects

I wanted to make a Jigglypuff for a friend. Because everyone loves Jigglypuff!

I bought the Chubby Dragon plush pattern by Sew Desu Ne as a jumping off point. Their patterns are excellent! So many great tips for sewing with fleece and minky fabrics. I highly recommend their patterns. If you're saving your pennies, you can still get started because there are so many free patterns available. I used an online image to help me design the machine embroidery for the eyes. It isn't perfect, but there was a limit to how many times I was willing to ...

The last bits of fleece make an easy peasy hat! from Art and Quilting in Camden

So I decided to use up the very last bits of my buffalo check fleece.  I began with 4 3/4 yards of the 58-60″ wide cloth.  The second photo shows the last bits!   These hats are SO FAST to make…including figuring out the best sewing sequence it took less than an hour for the first one.  If you wanted to make a half dozen, you could do that in an afternoon–quick and easy winter gifts!

Call me a Shannon Cuddle fan! from Art and Quilting in Camden

A heavenly combination: my studio, my Janome 9400 and Shannon Fabrics cuddle fabric–I’m ready for winter!  This fabric is so soft you just want to pet it, snuggle under it, and not give it away as a gift!

Last May, Janome America had its first ever Janome Education Summit, and one of the presenters was Shannon Fabrics.  From the kit they provided, I made the lovely summery top in this blogpost.  But they also shared samples of their fabrics, including these two.  True confession:  I have this Elmer Fudd-esque love affair with red and black buffalo check.  When ...

New Pattern in my Collection from Becca's Crazy Projects

On Friday Sew Desu Ne? published a new pattern that I could not resist. A Plush Backpack is not a a thing I need in my life but that doesn't stop me from wanting one.

I printed out the pattern directions and the pattern templates. I store patterns in a couple different ways, but this one I wanted to bind so I could page through it easily. We've had this comb binder for ages and I do use it a few times a year. I would love to recommend this one to you but it seems Amazon doesn ...

Animal Inspired Renter Quilts! from Quilted Joy

We are always talking about the different shapes that make up quilt blocks. Squares, triangles, rectangles, even hexagons can be combined in a variety of ways to create tops of wonder to the eye. But besides sewing blocks with shapes, you can have a lot of fun with applique as well. Now not all of these quilts were appliqued, but they are all adorable animal designs!

Judy's Jelly Roll Race quilt with an appliqued Fox!

Judy made this quilt for a baby shower gift. Is it not absolutely adorable? The quilt itself is just a simple jelly roll race. Judy then appliqued that cute fox on top. She even ...

Something Fishy from Becca's Crazy Projects

Last week I took the day off to take our pup to have her teeth cleaned. That story is too long and expensive to repeat so I'll just move on to the fabric store. 

I purchased Choly Knight's wonderful Slouchy Fleece Fish Hat pattern the day after it was released and decided this would be a great day to pick up some fleece. Sure, I have pounds and pounds of fleece, but I didn't have any orange, pink, white, or yellow. I may have gotten a little carried away with my purchases, but the fleece was half-price ...

Finally Off the Design Wall from Color Me Quilty

This quilt has been up on my design wall for months. It feels good to have it down and done.


 Not only is it done, it's all washed and soft. Simon, of course, had to test that out.


 I used Aurifil 50 wt white thread for the whole project - top and bobbin. Quilted beautifully.

 Simon is pointing out one of his favorite blocks. I combined many of Leah Day's fills within some organic shapes surrounded with straight lines.



The front is fun, but so is the back. I just used fleece as the batting and backing, just two ...

A good fleece day from Charmed Creations

The sun was shining, it was going to get warm... so what's a woman to do?  Wash and prep fleece!

Last summer/fall I had acquired a fleece, a whole fleece from a lady in Alberta.  She was able to get them from a farmer local to her.  I ordered one.. since I was just getting into processing wool to spin into yarn.  

The breed of sheep is a cross between Rambouillet and Rideau Arcott.  Now that probably won't mean much to most people, yet if you've ever heard of merino wool, it's frequently touted as ...
