When I started working on bag designs last year, I thought about what makes a bag useful. One of my biggest pet peeves is a bag that simply doesn't stand up for itself! No wimpy bags for this chick! So, of course, that brings me to the topic of today's post which is buckram.
Sometimes I come across amazing fabric at flea markets (old dresses or tablecloths,) garage sales, or even awesome stores like Spoonflower , but I just don't know what to do with it. Thats why when I came across this idea I had to share it with you. I found this idea on Making it Fun . It shows you how to make your own bean bag chair from scrap fabric. Great idea for kids- or for the big kid inside all of us!
I recently received a lovely parcel containing three copies of the Australian magazine “Inspirations” by Country Bumpkin. This was my first chance to take a look at this interesting, fine magazine which tells you more than you can imagine about embroidery in 100 pages of shiny, awesome weight paper with tons of lovely pictures, and step by step diagrams of embroidery tutorials. Recientemente recibí en el correo tres copias de la publicación australiana “Inspirations” de la editorial Country Bumpkin . Esta fué mi primera oportunidad de hojear una revista de bordado con 100 páginas de papel de increíble calidad con cantidad de fotos hermosas que incluye también tutoriales diagramados paso a paso. I know that there is more to embroidery than our grandmothers embroidery style, and our lovely online community of embroiderers, and pattern makers.
Ok, first up a confession. I admit that I am glad this project is finished. I am happy it is over. There, phewww, thank goodness that's out in the open and off my chest. Breathe out, it's all ok.
WOO HOO! Call me a big nerd but my heart's pounding because i'm so excited and honored to be here!!! my name is Sarah and i keep a blog over at Welcome to the gOOd life . it's a diary written by me (and sometimes by my hilarious husband) of the good and the ugly as a wife, a stay at home mom, raising two kids under three-just a year apart, and also my weekly DIY sewing projects. so should we get on to my DIY project?
So here is my tutorial for the Catch and Release Scarf from Anthro. Better late than never right? Materials: - 1 piece of fabric about 90 inches long - elastic thread - matching thread (all purpose) - rit dye (optional) - tailors chalk - sewing needle * Your fabric needs to be light weight, breezy, and somewhat see thru. I think a cotton voile, cotton lawn, or cotton gauze would work really well.
Hello everyone! I've missed you! And I have so much to tell you since I was here last. Fair warning, this will probably be a long one! I'm going to break my QuiltCon posts into a two because there was just so much to take in. Honestly.
maybe this is the week of the hyphenated artists! jan myers-newberry is one of those talented, unique, individuals who quietly leaves her mark, breaks fresh trails, and leaves people in awe of her work. yet try to find out anything about her on the internet and it is literally a matter of piecing together bits here and shreds there, but somehow - like her quilts - in assembling the pieces, the whole reveals a deep presence. an impact. a strong, deep talent that has embedded itself in the quilting world, jan is known for her lyrical, geometric, pieced quilts using shibori fabrics of her creation. many of her finished pieces show aspects of the work of victor vasarely , as well as joseph albers and other op artists including bridget riley . but first: what’s shibori? well shibori is a japanese technique for dying cloth that dates back to the eighth century. here’s the epicentre of the shibori universe !
Molly's Sketchbook: Strip Pieced Christmas Stocking - Knitting Crochet Sewing Crafts Patterns and Ideas!I always hear people complaining that the holiday season comes earlier and earlier every year. But for those of us who like to make things for the people we love we know that we've got to get started early! So every year about this time I start thinking about presents to make, things to bake, and holiday traditions.

A few weeks ago, I went to Dallas for the wedding of a friend of mine from college, and unsurprisingly, the reception ended up doubling as a mini college reunion. Some of those people I literally hadn’t seen since graduation day. Naturally, the experience got me thinking about the thing I am always thinking about: sewing. (really).
Just wanted to share a few of my favorite ways I wear my Brassy Bunchy Scarves. Enjoy the short video! (scarves vary in length, design, material etc) I also put together a slideshow of past and current product photos. They might help give you a new idea of HOW to wear or WHAT to wear with your Brassy Bunchy and/or Skinny Scarves.
