Giving Handmade from Sew Some Sunshine

Giving handmade gifts can by tricky.  If you are a maker you know what I mean.  You work hard on something and you're never really sure the receiver will actually like it.  You've picked out the fabric and pattern and decided what to make.  You put yourself out there and give a gift you love.  I guess this is true of all gifts, but the material and time it takes to make something raises the stakes.  For the most part I've got a decent radar for who will appreciate a handmade gift, so I try not to ...

For those times when you want a quick little make, a handmade gift, or need a needle case!

DIY Fabric Accessories from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello, makers!

    When I was growing up, I was never the one to dress up or put any jewelry. My mom always hated that I was a tomboy, haha! She would always make me feel bad for not dressing like a “lady”, especially if I walked out of the house without earrings! I guess now, that all grew on me because today I am the complete opposite. I feel weird not wearing any accessories and as you may all know from previous blog posts, I love to paint my nails too! Being such a girly-girl now, I really enjoy putting ...

Summer is here and in full swing, I bet many of you are going places; local or far from home vacations.

I decided to use these fabrics from her line for this project.

Mother's Day Handmade Gift Guide from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello, creators!

How’s everyone doing today? As you all may know, “Mother's Day” is almost here! Days like these are very important as we take the time to really appreciate all the super moms out there. Every year, I always try to give my mother the “most perfect, thoughtful” gift and what’s better than something handmade? Since my mom loves to relax at home, I made her a comfy, throw pillow last year for “Mother’s Day.” Overwhelmed with the idea of making her something again this year, I went searching for inspiration in our Lookbooks. As ...

» Charm About You

I made something just for me! And I love it. A few years ago I made an embroidered patchwork notebook cover and now I'm wondering why it took me so long to make another version. They really are fun to make and a fabric cover feels so lovely, it's also a good way to protect your book. After browsing the internet I decided to use this tutorial by Charlotte Scott, I was inspired by her embellishments and the measurements she gives worked perfectly! It's also an interesting construction. I didn't use any interfacing though because my ...
