AURORA CLUTCH (new pdf pattern) from Sotak Handmade


Hello friends, I'm excited to introduce my newest pdf pattern to you today!

Aurora Clutch is a perfect everyday wallet/ clutch and comes in two different sizes. 

Small size: approx. 4'' tall x 7 1/4'' wide when closed

Large size: approx. 4 1/2'' tall x 8 1/2'' wide when closed

My most favorite thing about this clutch are the card slots on the inside. I love having a special place for my bank cards and an ID. The small size features three card slots, and the large one four. 

I also like the wonderfully roomy front ...

Small zipper pouch tutorial from Quilt in Progress

String quilted zip pouch

The weather is warming up here in SW Missouri, and it will soon be auction time. We love to attend auctions to buy things we need, and even more things we don’t need but can’t resist. It’s a great way to get into collecting. I found out about vintage glassware makers and designs by paying attention to which ones bring higher bids, then researching them online.

Mostly I like to buy sewing machines. My favorite turn-around was when I purchased a Singer 99K. I bought it at auction as part of a 2-fer ...

Wee Billow Bag from Charm About You

I have long been a fan of Sweet Cinnamon Roses and her pattern the Wee Billow Bag is utterly fabulous! It was the most fun choosing fabrics and making something for myself with all the brown and florals and leopard - all beautiful Anna Maria Horner prints. Recently I have been USING my favourite fabrics and it's really lovely to be able to see them all around me rather than stored away in a cupboard or basket. Especially for every day items like this bag, it's happy inducing. Mine is a pouch version but you can see Laura's ...

Sunshine Crossbody Pouch from Becca's Crazy Projects

A friend mentioned the Sunshine Crossbody Pouch pattern from Bagstock Designs and I decided to give it a go. This is a free pattern with detailed instructions with color photos. You can also find a handful of step-by-step video tutorials on YouTube if you search for "sunshine crossbody pouch". I looked through my collection of vinyl, fat quarters from Spoonflower, and zips to come up with the perfect combination. This fabric Cephalopods world is still available on Spoonflower. 
On Friday I cut out all the pieces. Fabric, interfacing, vinyl, all ready to go. I buy my zippers from Zipit Zippers ...

“Discomfort” & Designing from Where Art & Life Meet

I’m working on something new, which is always exciting and uncomfortable at the same time. *Digression alert* That word -uncomfortable – is also used when you go into a doctor’s office to have a surgical procedure done and they say, “This might pinch a little” or when you go to the dentist to get your… Continue reading “Discomfort” & Designing

A New Design Unveiled! from Where Art & Life Meet

But first I have to begin with this video sent to me by my friend John Kelly. He also sent this to my mother, just in case you were wondering, and for those of you asking why I’m not posting something from her, that’s why. You know I love you, Mom. Musicians from all over… Continue reading A New Design Unveiled!

dotti denim pouch from Charm About You

More making adventures with #justjudecollaborates! This past week we have been making Judith's pattern, the Dotti Denim Pouch. Of course from the name you can tell that the original design was made using denim, I do have some regular denim but I decided to use a fun mix of fabrics and some printed lightweight Japanese denim.

This pouch is for me so there were no worries about whether someone else would like the fabric and this is the result of my stash dive - the brown papercuts print and white text one I hadn't yet used so it was ...

Lola pouch ~ collaboration from Charm About You

My sewjo seems to take a wander every now and again. Like anything, occasionally the motivation eludes you. Sometimes you have to ride it out and wait for inspiration to spur you into action. Oftentimes I will start with a smaller make, a pouch or cushion to incite my creativity and make a finished project for that sense of achievement. 

I was thrilled to be asked to join Judith Hollies for her #justjudecollaborates over on instagram. Along with Judith, myself, Svetlana Sotak, Stuart Hillard and Kerry Foster will be making each other patterns to create finished projects throughout July. You ...

Kantha quilting from Wendy's Quilts and More

Have you heard of Kantha quilting?

 My online friend Shruti Dandekar says:

Kantha is one of the traditional styles of handwork popular in Eastern India - especially the state of West Bengal - and Bangladesh. It is used to either add embroidery to fabric or to quilt.

You can read more about it here in Wikipedia.

This month Aurifil have asked some of the Aurifil Artisans to experiment with Kantha quilting and Kaffe Fassett fabrics.

I've decided to use my variegated 12wt Aurifil threads on this fat quarter of Kaffe's fabric called Busy Lizzy.  I'm quilting the whole fat ...

The Perfect Zippered & Lined Bag from Where Art & Life Meet

I love a good zippered pouch. Preferably one that I can take on an airplane, large enough for a tablet or small sketch book, a needle roll, small pair of scissors, and project, but not so large that it becomes cumbersome. I began looking around at what is already out there and found many lovely… Continue reading The Perfect Zippered & Lined Bag

Drawstring Baskets from Quilting Stories

Drawstring basket

Since some time I wish to sew drawstring baskets for my grandchildren. After searching on Pinterest and on various blogs, I was lucky to find a really great tutorial on this blog : Threading My Way. I must say that I never found such a perfect tutorial, so well explained that you cannot make any mistake. I followed step by step the explanations and had not the least problem. I sewed the orange basket first, and was so satisfied with the result that next day I did a blue one. Tomorrow a pink one! Thank you Pam for Australia!

So Many Socks from Becca's Crazy Projects

After getting the 72 slot cylinder for my circular sock knitting machine I have been working on holiday gifts. The 64 slot is perfect for socks for my small, narrow feet, but I know so many people with human-sized feet. This is the pair of monster socks I knit up. It's nice to use up those little odds and ends leftover from making matching socks. 
There was some coffee along the way, too. 
I even finished up this tiny sock knit on the machine. This sock is worked bck and forth on about 24 stitches and is seamed up ...

Freedom from Sewn With Curves

How the year has flown by. I didn't believe adults when I was younger telling me that time just flies by as you get older but I am a believer. Now that I am 40, I can only imagine how quickly things will happen. Fingers crossed that I am ready for it.

I lost my sewing mojo for a while, hence the lack of posts in recent months. This was the first time in years that I didn't sew everyone's Christmas presents. I have decided to not put any stress on myself for any reason to finish ...
