Batting Average? from From the Strawberry Patch...

I usually order my batting on thirty yard rolls and receive it, on average, within a week. That all came to a screeching halt a while back. The batting orders are running way (w-a-a-a-y) behind. I contacted the supplier that I use  as I was getting down to the last few yards and learned that there was at least a six week backlog~ yikes! I hadn't planned on that. A quick perusal around other sites

Bag Lady {Two More Finished Open Wide Bags} from Little Bunny Quilts

Since I had enough notions -- with the exception of zippers -- to make a few more Open Wide bags, I bought a few more zippers and got to work.

The first one that I made is the same three fabrics as the large pouch that I made in the original set, just in the smallest size. I used all of the same colors of thread for quilting and construction so that these are a matching set. 



For the second, I made a medium sized bag using only two different fabrics instead of three. I used the same fabric for both the ...

What I've Been Sewing Lately {WIP Wednesday} from Little Bunny Quilts

Despite the fact that I have been working from home for four months as of tomorrow, that has not translated at all into extra sewing time. It's mostly translated into sleeping more and loading and unloading the dishwasher more. And we may or may not have made it through the entire Marvel movie series in that time. 


The goals in my sewing room have been two-fold since the beginning of the year: finish up WIPs and clear out scraps. The finishing up WIPs part has been wholly unsuccessful. The clearing out scraps part has actually gone relatively well. I ...

I was actually able to cut enough from my strip sets to make six placemats plus a ...

Smaller Projects of 2019 from Factotum of Arts

I find I am more creative if I don’t get too bogged down with larger projects. I intersperse smaller projects while making those larger time consuming ones. Last year, a lot of those smaller projects landed up being gifts.

My favorite of the projects, were these vintage wood egg cups that I made into pin cushions. I tried a variety of cushion fillers and in the end used felt balls. I used wood glue to glue in the balls to both the wood cups and these swan ceramic cups (its all I had on hand).

Scrappy Sewing {Flannel Burp Cloths} from Little Bunny Quilts

As I mentioned in some of my recent posts, one of my sewing goals for The Great Stay Home Marathon is reorganizing my sewing room. I use flannel for backing baby quilts, but I often end up with flannel scraps that I don't know what to do with a lot of the time. However, there is another impending baby boom in my circle of friends (four babies between June and November!) I decided to pull out the flannel scraps and make some really simple burp cloths.

There are a lot of different burp cloth tutorials out there and I ...
