Triangle Corner Trick I was piecing these blocks with triangle corners (like the corners in this block) yesterday and thought I would share a quick trick. Usually a pattern (including my own) will recommend drawing a pencil line from corner to corner on the wrong side, and sewing along the line. Like this one: Tutorial: Sprocket Pillows These are my favorite new pillows. They are fast and unbelievably easy to make…and I hope you love them as much as I do. I did my best to simplify the instructions/pattern so they are beginner friendly, and super fun to make. If you’ve never worked with a template or curves, and your nervous about it…these pillows are a perfect place to start. The only problem with them is that you can’t make just one…trust me …I tried. There are pattern templates for two sizes:

Redfly Creations: Go-Everywhere Mini Messenger Bag My kiddos and I have really enjoyed biking on the trails here in our neighborhood. Sometimes we are biking for nearly an hour. During those longer rides I like to make sure I take my keys, phone, and some change with us. Not every pair of shorts or pants can accommodate all those items, so I decided I needed to make a solution. It needed to be a little bag that wouldn't get in the way and wasn't too heavy, but could still hold more than a pocket could. I came up with the idea of a mini messenger bag.
Honeybee Vintage: pillowcase challenge I found this cute pillowcase a while back and I even paid a whole dollar for it! I know..what a splurge:) I went back and forth about what to do with it. At first I was going to make an apron and oven mitt set for the Little Miss...but I decided I wanted to be selfish and make something for myself:) I started a new Bible study for moms at our church...so I decided my bible could use a cute cover:) This could also work for any other book you want to dress up.

Nested Fabric Buckets Tutorial I didn’t invent the idea of the fabric basket/bucket–nothing like–but I am certainly more than happy to walk you through how I made the ones I’m using in my studio. After discovering–purely by accident–that a smaller (prototype) bucket fit neatly inside the larger size I settled on, it occurred to me as I prepared to put together a tutorial that a set of nested buckets would be pretty cool. So, here they are: a set of three nested fabric buckets to mix-and-match at will. I’m even thinking the littlest size would make a sweet handbag for the spring, don’t you? I’m really digging on the graduated sizes, and still completely in love with the idea that these can be used as dividers, so that the biggest basket isn’t so super huge that there’s a ton of wasted space.
