6 Projects to Stay Organized from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Organization

2019 is the year to finally start organizing all the mess that was left behind in 2018! Maybe one of your priorities this year is to start fresh with a clean sewing room, bedroom, or in my case, desk space. At least for me, it hard to concentrate when everything is all over the place and not in their “right home,” and nothing is more satisfying than knowing where everything is and having it all in order. In case, you’re ready to begin revamping and reorganizing your space for this year, here’s some projects that are on my ...

Color Master of The Month: Vibrant Violet from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Vibrant Violet color mood board

Welcome back, Color Master fans! Did you know that the color “violet” represents the future, enhances our imagination and dreams, while keeping us grounded? It got me thinking about how fast the year is going by and that 2019 is right around the corner! Here in Florida, it will start getting cooler with the cold fronts..well “cooler” for us meaning 70 degrees..and we can really appreciate being outdoors. Now, just thinking about it, has me really excited for upcoming holidays, and the color “violet” brings me right to New Years Eve where everyone gathers under the stars to ...

The Cutest Lion Ever from Needle and Foot

When the family was all here for the wedding last month, I asked my daughter in law if I could make a Halloween costume for H.  I know she won’t really ‘trick or treat’ since she isn’t even 2 years old yet.  But the kids at daycare will likely celebrate Halloween.  Also, she is starting to enjoy pretend play and dressing up with silly hats, wearing her mama’s ‘pretties’ (bracelets), etc.  I think even if she doesn’t trick or treat, she will enjoy having the costume to play with.

After chatting, we decided on a lion ...

Fussy Cutting Projects- Find the Perfect Prints! from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

 Hello Makers, 

What is your go to quilting technique? EPP, scrappy quilts, foundation paper piecing, quilt-as-you- go?  There are so many ways to create a single quilt and whatever way you choose why not incorporate a bit of fussy cutting to add a dose of extra cuteness to your handmade creations. When I first started working at Art Gallery Fabrics about  4  and a half years ago, I was introduced to all things quilty! One of the first quilting terms I learned was the word "Fussy Cutting", which I thought at the time was a pretty silly name. When you ...

Back to School Sewing Essentials from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Greetings, makers!

 

I can’t believe summer’s almost over. I remember as a kid (when I was age 12) I would dread listening to all the “back to school” commercials in mid-July 😂, especially since my mom would worry about getting my supplies early because if you waited too long, shopping becomes chaotic with all the parents scrambling to get what they need. But here we are now, 10 years later repeating history with my 12 year old brother! My brother is starting school in the next couple of weeks, and although he is not excited, he is looking forward ...

A No-Sew Week from Needle and Foot

I miss my sewing machine.  I have not spent much time with her and I suspect she misses me just as much. It is a combination of things – we are having a patio built  and, while I am not doing any of the building, somehow it seems to take up some of my time.  Maybe because I am so excited about the progress (we have wanted this for a very long time) and I keep going out there to watch the next step.  Yesterday they poured a large portion of it and I spent most of the morning watching.  Poor ...

Little Pillowcases from Needle and Foot

About a month ago, my daughter in law texted me to ask if I would make some small pillowcases for my grand baby.  She has recently taken to sleeping with a tiny pillow (which is so darn cute!) So a few cute pillowcases were needed.  Of course I am happy to make whatever I can.  I am unsure why I didn’t get these done sooner because they are so simple.

Sewing for Safelight from Needle and Foot

Earlier this week, I shared this picture on Instagram.  I haven’t been feeling well thus very little has occurred in the sewing room.  Soon after returning from Vermont, I began to feel that sense of doom when you know you are coming down with a bug.  Yesterday I had a chest x-ray to confirm I have pneumonia. Yuk.  Not a whole lot of fun and way more than a lot of coughing is happening.

Not all is lost though.  I have been wanting to make a contribution to the annual event that is happening now at From My Carolina ...

Tiny Things for A Doll Like Me from Needle and Foot

This week was a blur.  Each day was busy and the time flew by.  Big news at our house is that Julia has a driver’s license.  This is always a huge milestone for any child and parent.  The contrasting experience is substantial; the freedom and independence of being able to drive vs the increased worry and anxiousness!  Quite the extremes for both the kid and mom and dad. She is a good driver and a responsible person; it is all the weirdos out there that make me worry. I am sure it will be fine though. She was so ...

Tiny Finishes from Needle and Foot

Good morning!  It has been a crazy week which hasn’t allowed me much time in the sewing room.  Plus the two projects I worked on most are not able to be shared just yet.  But I do have something cute to show you.  When I make Chemex cozies for my customers, I end up with scraps.  Of course I do, right?  There are usually several larger scraps that result from cutting the curved shape of the cozy. I have been saving them (because my fabric obsession says I have to).  They are starting to really pile up.

Handmade Christmas Gifts from Needle and Foot

Now that Christmas is done and gifts have been given and received, I thought I would share what I made with you. Usually I try to find a fun project to make and give during the Christmas season.  In recent years I have made purses, zip pouches, table runners and hot pads. This year I decided to make an apron for my Vermont daughter-in-law.  Also, I made hot pads for my California son and his girlfriend as well as my Toronto son and his wife.  These projects were quick and satisfying.

For the apron, I upcycled a duvet cover that ...

Finished! Christmas Tree Skirt from Needle and Foot

First of all, I want to thank you for the sweet comments on my last post.  I appreciate it.  Life isn’t predictable and this is just how it is — The migraines started almost ten years ago and I don’t see this changing any time soon.   But this week has been reasonable and I actually finished a project!  I also made a Christmas gift which I will share after the holidays. Hurray for time at the sewing machine.

I have wanted to make a quilted skirt for the Christmas tree for a long while.  Until now, I have just ...
