This tutorial is an old one of mine that’s too good not to share again.
One of my favorite crafts is hand stitching-- it's fun, addictive, expressive and relaxing :) Over the next few weeks, I'm going to share easy ways to make your own patterns for hand stitching along with some tips and ideas :)
*This tutorial was made by Kate @ See Kate Sew for her win during the Scraps Only challenge* For this project, you’re going to need a lot of different scraps, 50 of them.
I've had the idea for this pillow for a few months and the pillow contest at Sew Mama Sew was the motivation I needed to get me going.
A cheap and easy way to make fabric people won't believe you made... Recently while working on a special Burdastyle project I stumbled upon some of the most beautiful fabric I had ever seen! Rows of scalloped tulle sewn together in layers to create this amazing scale-like illusion...I _had_ to have it and for half off of $40 a yd, I could sacrifice eating if it meant I could have just one yard!
i have a thing for texture. i like it. katie's room has a lot of texture. with ruffles, and gathers, she's got enough pillows in her room (because she steals them after i make them and hoards them on her bed...i just let it go) but the boys? not so much. naturally i would choose to make something for my sons' room that is not on the ruffly side, so what's a mom to do?
last week was butt freezing cold here. like in the negatives. so i needed something to keep me busy and happy in the house. and well valentines being around the corner...well when you are a crafter and trying to create things for the holiday... it's right around the corner. this little pillow is fast and easy and well, a happy maker in freezing temps. lets get started: materials needed: a strip of pink or red fabric approx size of 6" by 12" two squares of muslin (i used sandcastle fabric i had on hand in my stash) cut to around 10" by 10".
I was going to a DJ exhibition that was happening tonight BUT it was canceled so instead I made a quick and dirty smocking tutorial for aznenchantress. What is smocking? It's a method of gathering fabric that provides stretch to an area.
Circle Skirts You don't need a pattern to make a circle skirt, just a simple compass and your measurements to make a basic circle panel. Circle panels can make several different types of dance skirts, but they all start out the same way.
