Zippered Lining Tutorial As promised... A lining can add a lot to a bag. In this case, I added a lining made with home decor weight cotton and it added sturdiness to my "It's a Cinch Bag". You could also add a lining with a pretty printed fabric to give an old bag new interest. My First Sewing Project: Knitting Needle Roll Hello friends, hope your weekend was wonderful and enjoyable, filled with joy, happiness and so many crafty creations to amaze me! I'm so excited now as I am going to show you my FIRST sewing project, which I've dreamed on for a long time: Sewing knitting needle roll! Using this great tutorial as a guide, I modified a bit and here is my own one: Not yet many things to put in the case as I've just taught myself how to knit, but it will be great to keep all my knitting tools for the next future :). Single point needles, circular needles, double points, cable needles and other tools are all in order, very neat. Needles and other stuff, just some but such a mess before:
A cute fix for a hole in the knee of jeans I wish this was my original idea, but I found it on Pinterest. I did however, do things a little differently than the original. The original poster sewed hers on by hand, but when I patch a knee, I like to sew by machine (because it's faster, and I am lazy, lol), so I seam ripped open the leg to sew mine on the machine, and I, of course, used felted recycled wool. Here is the before (not a very big hole, but it would have been quickly!) ... Sliding loop : an easy way to begin granny square! The double sliding loop is my favorite way to begin a granny square. I find this method fabulous as I can make the beginning ring the size I want. I worked it with a double ring as I find it more safe and easier to weave in end the tails.
Needle and Spatula: Pleated Pouch Sewing Tutorial I originally posted this project in August and have been meaning to make it again to do a tutorial ever since. This bag combines elements from a number of different tutorials and projects out there, I basically mixed and matched elements to come up with what I wanted. It has squared off bottom corners which give it a good amount of inside volume and a nice shape. It can stand up (and would stand up even more if made with home dec weight fabric or using interfacing). It would be great as a small makeup or jewelry bag, to hold knitting or sewing notions, or for whatever you want! Also, this is clearly not a grocery bag, but in the spirit of the Green Grocery Bag Challenge, you could make these to use as "wrapping" for small holiday gifts.

Here you can find an organized list of all my tutorials, projects and printables. I want to point out that I am no sewing expert and have no formal education in either sewing or English (Spanish is my native language) So I might not always use the correct terminology or best technique, I am always learning too! It might not always be perfect, but it’s sure a lot of fun! Category: Vintage A Very Vintage Wedding Fair Tuesday, February 12th, 2013 Love is in the air this Valentine’s week, and to celebrate, A Very Vintage Wedding Fair is throwing its bouquet to Brisbane once more!

bonnet facile knitting for last minute gifts is part of the holiday season and often unexpectedly fun. this year a slouchy hat using two luxurious skeins of eyre, for a close friend seemed just right. last-minute slouch ::: yarn :: madelinetosh eyre (225 yds (206 meters): “milk”, 2 skeins, madelinetosh tosh sock (395 yards / 361 meters) : “robin’s egg”, 1 skein. note : both yarns are held doubled throughout.
Scrap It: Gift Card Case or Biz Card Holder Ahhhhh, the gift card. It seems to be such a common choice, and not just as a last minute grab for someone hard to shop for. Gift cards appear to be the go-to gift for anyone and any occasion. Let's face it - they're easy to find, quick to buy, come in any denomination, and are... stunningly impersonal. Maybe it's just me, but a gift card seems to say, "I couldn't really be bothered to find you a present; how about you go get yourself a little something?" Make it Yourself: Felt Knitting Needle Case I recently made simple felt cases for my double pointed needles. I was tired of the plastic packaging they came in and decided a little felt case was the answer, plus the needles look so happy and cozy!
