Any sewist knows how hard it is to find a good butcher paper for pattern fitting alterations, rub-offs, patternmaking, etc.
I distinctly recall my first purchase of a Burda World of Fashion magazine (which by the way, is now BurdaStyle magazine).
Some of the finest fabrics are available on ebay at huge discounts.

Ask just about any woman, and one of the biggest frustrations of many ready-to-wear garments is the lack of truly functional pockets. Handy for keeping your keys or cell phone stashed, it’s not hard to add a pocket (or two!) to many sewn garments–even when using patterns that may not originally have pockets.
Sure my mask is cool, but it's not for the beginner. This is a beginners project with needle tatting. Making this simple flower pendant will teach you some of the basics of needle tatting.
It looks quite elaborate, but the basic knotting pattern is easy to do.
A friend gave me this flower ring and necklace, when she handed them to me I thought they were porcelain–there’s a very vintage feel to them.
I don't know about you, but this is my perfect vision of summer! Well of course I'd like to be sitting next to a beautiful lake with an iced coffee, but for now I'm quite happy sitting next to our largish wading pool with a gorgeous mountain view beyond. You see, when you need to watch your kids in the pool, there's nothing better than a little (or a lot in my case) crocheting!
If you've never used sewing machines before, I highly recommend you have a friend or relative show you how.
