Handmade Gifts from Dizzy Quilts

I didn't make many gifts this year - I was a little short on time unfortunately, but I did manage to get small things done.

First was a secret Santa gift for the office exchange. The person I was matched with really likes pink, candles and tea. So I decided to buy her a scented candle, a tea cup and I made a pink one-hour basket to put them in!


I used fat quarters I had in my stash and some By Annie's Soft & Stable to give the basket some structure and make sure it wouldn't collapse with ...

A New Zipper Pouch for a Friend from Dizzy Quilts

As some of you know, I'm step-mom to three amazing children. When their dad and I got together, he had been separated from his children's mom for a long time. I'm a firm believer that for blended families to be successful, all parents must be able to get along so the kids' mom and I became friends. She's a really great person and she's basically part of the family.

I know that she's always liked the stuff I make for the kids and for the grand-kids, so when her birthday came around this last ...

#the100scrapchallenge from Sotak Handmade


Hello lovelies,

I while ago I talked about the mountain of scraps I managed to accumulate over time and how I decided to give myself a challenge of sewing up 100 items using scraps only. Now, this is a pretty relaxed kind of challenge as there's no time restriction and I work on many other projects as well as I think all scraps all the time would get old pretty soon :)

I'm happy to say I've been pretty consistently dipping into my scrap bins and I now have 10 projects to show you (only 9 photos as ...

A coin purse for my sister from Dizzy Quilts

A little while ago, my sister asked me if I could make a coin purse for her. I had to travel to Denver for work last week so didn't have a whole lot of time to sew, but a coin purse is really quick and easy so I decided to get it done!



A simple Google search resulted in me finding this tutorial. I then found some Rifle Paper Co scraps and the perfectly matching zipper right there in my stash! This pattern is perfect for some gorgeous prints because except for the zipper on the front, the design ...

a piece of this & that from Charm About You


My newest A Piece of Me Pouch is a combination of this and that; a culmination of bits I have gathered, an unfinished project and a couple of new things I wanted to try. This is larger than the version in my pattern - it's very easy to make in any size you choose! - and I'll show you how I created a loop for carrying or hanging.

Always on the look out for interesting fabrics, I found this fabulous buttery soft Punched Faux Leather and as soon as I saw it, thought it would be great for stitching on ...

#the100scrapchallenge from Sotak Handmade


Ever since our move in August I've been trying to organize my studio and all the supplies in the most efficient way possible, which so far has meant moving things around constantly. I think I need to take a little break and just see what works and what doesn't for a while and then get back to it again in a few months.

Last week though, as I was rearranging things yet again, I realized I have FIVE buckets chock full of scraps! I don't even know how that happened. I use my scraps all the time ...

I Have Too Many Hobbies from The Crooked Banana Quilts

It's true. Way too many hobbies. I knit, sew, crochet, run, read, write, play video games and sometimes cross stitch. And there isn't enough time to devote the amount of attention I would like to each of them. So I go in phases, sometimes week by week, sometimes month by month. But in a perfect world I wouldn't need to go to work every day and I could just rotate hobbies all day long...

Anyway, here are some things I've been working on.
