My library of doll patterns is growing! I’m so proud of this newest sewing pattern and I hope you love it too. Introducing the Grandma and Grandpa doll PDF sewing pattern! These sweet dolls were inspired by my own parents, who have always been long distance grandparents and have still been dedicated to building relationships with each of their eight grandchildren. Since many of you may be in the same boat, I thought it would be so sweet if grandmas could make dolls for their grandkids who look like them, so they know their grandparents and with them in spirit, whether they live near or far.

The Easiest Quilt Binding Tutorial
Pin, Cut, Sew
by Nikki Schreiner
1d ago
A few years ago, I created a tutorial for how to sew an oversized hot pad and it’s one of my most popular videos to date — mostly because of my fuss free method of quilt binding! That tutorial teaches the quilt binding method that I’ve always used, so I really didn’t know how many people were struggling with other, more fussy methods of binding their quilts. After receiving sooooo many comments about this genius of this method, I knew I had to share a separate tutorial just for my brilliant binding method! The genius of this method is the way you handle the mitered corners and how you join th ..read more

How to Install and Sew with a Walking Foot

by Nikki Schreiner
2w ago
I recently highlighted some sewing tools I’m a huge fan of, one of them being a walking foot attachment for my sewing machine. Since this is such an essential tool for me, I was so surprised at how many comments I received from people who either had one and had no idea what it was for up until that point, or people who had never even heard of one! So I got to work making a video on exactly what a walking foot is, why you need one in your sewing life, and also how to install it properly on your sewing machine. I’ll include that video at the end of the post, or you can watch it here, but if you ..read more

Four-At-A-Time Flying Geese Quilt Block Tutorial

One of the categories I intend to add quite a bit of content to at Pin Cut Sew this year is quilting tutorials! Quilting has always been the most relaxing, therapeutic form of sewing for me, so I look forward to posting several accessible, stress free quilting articles and videos here in the coming months. I recently started a fun scrap quilt made of Flying Geese blocks. It had been awhile since I’d made flying geese (though I gifted a Flying Geese quilt to a friend many years ago and it’s one of my best makes!) so I brushed up on my technique using the great tutorial on SuzyQuilts.com.

Easy Wonky Star Quilt Block Tutorial
Pin, Cut, Sew
by Nikki Schreiner
1M ago
I’m a huge fan of freestyle quilting! I love to improvise and pull out scraps and make a big mess and just sort of wing it. Give me a list of 100 shapes to cut before I can even start my quilt and I’m out, haha. But give me freedom to make something up as I go along, and call it wonky? I’m so in! This wonky star block is something I sat down to practice recently because I had a ton of fun novelty Christmas fabrics (I cannot help buying them!) and I really wanted a way to use a few of them before the season is over. So, I quickly learned to make wonky stars with a cute Christmas print in the c ..read more

Most of the time, when I go to the fabric store for thread, I know exactly where to go and which thread type and color I’m looking for, and I don’t even notice the other four racks of sewing thread choices. Recently, though, I needed something specific and once I found it, I realized how many specialty threads there are! You can buy special thread for so many different things nowadays and I wanted to come here and break down the reasons you might need specialty sewing thread (and when you probably don’t), plus some dos and don’ts for choosing the right thread for your project.
