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 ...

Cutting, Sewing and a Quick Repair from From My Carolina Home

My sewing lately has been mostly on secret projects, making progress on the mystery quilt along Minuet and working on the next Teacup block.  I did another quilt repair that was so simple I didn’t take any pictures, but it did take up a few hours.  Mostly I’ve been cutting up fabrics to make kits for myself, and I can show you a sewing repair on a flannel shirt.  I also have an announcement to make, so read on for that.

Quilted Pocket Organizer from Expect Moore

When Mr. Domestic asked if I’d be part of his blog hop showing off his new line of Aura fabrics with Art Gallery Fabrics, of course I said yes and started thinking of how I wanted to use these pretty fabrics. What I immediately decided was something simple and practical. Because while I love quilts, I have so many that sit in a chest waiting for their day in the sun. And I knew I didn’t want to do that with these beautiful fabrics. So, I created a Quilted Pocket Organizer. This is a simple wall-hanging that it ...

A dress and a bonus top from Granny Maud's Girl

I thought that I might like to return to dressmaking this year. In my teenage years, I made a lot of my own clothes, but that desire slowly waned because I had a number of fashion disasters that did not encourage me to continue; my french seams and the fit were just fine, but the fabric colours I chose made me look ghastly. I became discouraged.

Feeling brave (and a little bit desperate to try to replace a favourite work top), I bought a handful of sewing patterns in the Christmas and New Year sales. Thanks to age maturity, I ...

Five DIY projects for your car from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

Meow and Forever Fabric

Oh my goodness!! I just love this line. Its fishes just make me giggle. The cat whiskers and ears flood me with nostalgia because they make me think of a staple in my home growing up, muisjes (the American word would be sprinkles). Bread with butter and dark chocolate sprinkles was a totally acceptable breakfast for my Dutch parents. And don’t get me started about those cat heads. My Mind’s Eye created all of these mischievous fabrics for Riley Blake Designs. That green and pink combo has been enchanting all of my sewing projects ...

Pin It Weekly #268 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I missed last week's PIW because I was volunteering at Beta convention. Now that it's over, and I've recovered, I'll help babysit grandies while we pass the crud around like we're playing hot potato. Ryder is in the hospital, Marley and Sophie both are running fevers, and Milly's little nose is raw from being cleaned so often.

Let's meet a couple of new followers, shall we? Maria das Dores Lima's boards are all titled in Portuguese. I translated them using Google 
so I could figure out the language. (I'll assume that ...

How to Make a Felted Wool Pincushion from Patchwork Posse

Learn how to make a felted wool pincushion….there are lots of options when it comes to felted wool and what pincushion designs you can make. Strips of felted wool make the perfect material for making pincushions. 
 
For the materials I went with felted wool sweaters, but the process is the same for using strips of wool felt. So, either will work. 
Because of the subject of the final pincushion, I choose my colors accordingly.   This is a great way to explore some fun wool colors though and think outside of the box. 
How to make felted wool pincushions. Perfect for wool strips and shrunk sweaters. so cute!
