Sewing a gift :: a quilted tote bag

  I just recently finished this quilted tote as a gift for my very first 'real life' sewing buddy! Yay, someone that I can sit & chat fabrics, patterns and all things sewing related with! We've even had a 'sewing date' at her house (her house is bigger than mine and has more room to cut fabric). I tried to use fabrics from my stash, I know she likes the colour brown, so I found some fabrics that went well with each other. I love the bag so much that I'll be making one of my own too! I didn't follow the pattern 100% as I added some more pockets into it - check out how I sewed it in th ..read more

  I had the opportunity to attend a wreath making workshop with a friend recently and I sat down and wrangled dried flowers & leaves for two hours and managed to make this wreath.  I love it, it's currently hanging up on my front door. Ironically, I found a list of things that I wanted to do for this Christmas (written after last Christmas) and the item on top of the list was to have a wreath for a door!  I did a quick internet search and you can actually buy Christmas wreath making kits, there are some here.. and here.. for you to check out. I'd love it if you popped over t ..read more

  I found myself jealous of all the awesome oversized zipper pouches that I had made for the kids & their friends last year, so I had to make myself one. When I saw this gorgeous bird fabric, I just knew it would be perfect for my own project bag. I even took the time to hand quilt around the birds. Do you like it?  How would you have quilted it? If you'd like to see more, then check out this: https://youtu.be/Zo9GQ2l8Wsk I'd love it if you popped over to my YouTube channel & subscribed to it & even liked some of my videos.

The Donny Shirt

  I just finished sewing myself the Donny shirt and wow, I love the style of this shirt! Firstly, it's a super size inclusive pattern, I did extend the length of the pattern though as it's designed to sit on your hips & I wear my shirts longer.   The pattern was super easy to follow, there is a well written pattern, a tutorial and also a Youtube sewalong clip (from the designer) as well.  I actually 'cheated' and had this pattern printed out on A0 paper as I wanted to see if it would be easier than printing & taping it together. My home printer often doesn't work so ..read more

The Cardigan Drama

  Not wanting to sound dramatic with the headline but gosh, sewing this cardigan really was an adventure! From not having the right fabric to trying to calculate how much I need to stuff sticking to the iron not to mention that everything fell out of the cupboard when I went to get the ironing board out. The dog was supervising me from outside, barking at me in frustation cos it was raining. The overlocker decided to eat the fabric and I had a heck of a time getting it out again.  ..but it was all worth it, I absolutely love my cardigan. Does it look ok? I'm wanting to make another o ..read more

  I recently made a big batch of quilted journal covers in preparation for upcoming birthdays for the year. They're super easy to make, absolutely gorgeous and honestly, I just want to keep them all for myself. I filmed myself making them so you can be inspired and sew some yourself. See it here: https://youtu.be/7ZX6V5uEtwU   It's my first time doing free motion quilting, so you'll have to tell me how I did, does the scribbly quilted bits look ok? I'm thinking of making some more using selvedge edge strips as the fabric and some scrappy fabric ones too.  Do you think ..read more

What are the best knitting needles?
CraftyRie
by

  The best knitting needles are ones that you use over & over & over again. They are the needles that glide easily with any project with any yarn. Bonus points if those needles are have interchangeable swivel cables & cables ends to make life easier, so you switch from the back to the front, sleeves etc with your project and not have to worry about dropping stitches or losing needles. I absolutely recommend these KnitPro knitting needles, not only are they are incredibly beautiful, I love the style, the feel and how they all come together in the set.  The knitting needle ..read more
