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 ...

Winter Friends Christmas Stockings from Needle and Foot

While visiting my son, daughter in law, and grand baby in Vermont last month we talked about the holidays.  This is the first Christmas we will be apart.  My daughter in law is working her second year of her residency as a radiologist.  Apparently the second year residents don’t have the best work schedule.  She is working over Thanksgiving and Christmas both.  So the three of them will be celebrating holidays in between her shifts at the hospital.  Such is the life of a new doctor.

Always ones to look at the bright side, my son and DIL are ...

An endless love for flowers: Wild Bloom by Bari J. from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello, beautiful sewists!

Raise your hand if you love flowers as much as you love sewing! I know I sure do! Ever since I was a kid, I have fond memories of gardening with my mom (who also loves flowers), visiting botanical gardens, and when I learned how to draw it was the first thing I was inspired by. It’s no surprise that flowers make the world more beautiful! Especially when you incorporate them in fabrics, quilts, and sewing projects.

I know that during the fall it’s not conventional to use many flowers; but I encourage you to ...

Cross Body Bag for Travel from Needle and Foot

Most of the time, I use a big purse. I carry all sorts of stuff, probably more than I really need to. But that doesn’t work as well when I am traveling.  If I bring a tote bag or backpack on a plane (for a book, iPad, food etc) it becomes cumbersome to also have a purse.

I decided to make a slim, simple cross body bag for these, not-very-frequent, travel days. This way I will have a purse with my wallet and phone in it while I am traveling and it won’t take up tons of room ...

10 Earthy Fall Fabrics You'll Love from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hey Makers!

Guess, what? Fall is finally here and it’s time to whip out your favorite warm colors to make table runners for Thanksgiving, goodie bags for halloween, and all kinds of sewing patterns that go with the season! Although here in South Florida fall in nonexistent, I love going to local shops to see the orange, red, and brown decor reminiscent of falling leaves. Oh and don’t forget pumpkin spice everything!

Around this time last year I found a new love for curating seasonal fabrics for projects. I put together a bundle of 10 fall floral fabrics ...
