Fun with ribbons and decorative stitches!

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

A couple months ago, I had the opportunity to teach a demo class at our local quilt guild. In the few weeks prior to that I dug into my stash of fabrics and ribbon looking for some fun combinations! I had designed this quick tutorial and pattern for this cute little clutch that I had […]

Hang onto those stashes!

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

I have lots of stashes of various bits and pieces of items in my sewing room – fabric scraps, ribbon, beads, buttons and who-knows what else. At times when I’m sorting through things, I often wonder to myself, “Do I really need to keep all this stash of stuff?” And usually I end this mental […]

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

I ran across this post via twitter last week and decided I would give these little fabric origami baskets a try for some Valentine’s goodies I needed to make. They are so cute and worked great! I can see making them for all kinds of things! So I cut out 10″ squares of Snow White […]

If it works with paper, why won’t it work with fabric?!

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

I’ve been playing with envelope templates and printing various sizes on paper and decided that I had to try a fabric envelope! If it works with fabric, why won’t it work with fabric?! Normally I stick to the same kind of projects, but every once in a while I have to try something different and […]

Friday, July 17th, 2009

A customer wanted a blanket created with pink suede and zebra minkee fabric to which I thought, “No problem, I can do that!”. What we decided to do was do one side minkee and the other side suede with swirls quilted to hold the layers together and bind it with pink satin. Not too difficult, […]

Minkee Fabric – It’s a love/hate relationship!

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

Ah, yes – Minkee!!! It’s that luxurious fabric that you just love to rub your hand over and over again! It feels so good that you can’t resist purchasing it! But reality sets in when you start to cut the fabric and stitching with it! Suddenly your great love affair with this fabric is diminishing […]

Fabric + ribbons + trims + thread = Trim It Tote!

Friday, May 8th, 2009

Ah, yes! Who can’t resist stitching another tote bag?!?! I have many; way too many to count in several different sizes and styles. Some I have kept and others I have given away, but there’s nothing such as fun as a new and different kind of bag! Check out the Trim It Tote by designer, […]

The *perfect* fabric for bathroom curtains!

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

I was in Colorado last week to visit my friend, Joanna, and of course we had to go to Denver Fabrics. I just love that fabric store!!! They are not a quilt shop, but an excellent source of garment fabrics. Quality garment fabrics are hard to find and many times the cost of yardage can […]

Renewing my love of Fiber Etch!

Saturday, February 28th, 2009

Fiber Etch – have you ever used this etching gel? I have several times and taught a couple of classes using it several years ago, but it’s been a while since I’ve picked up my bottle. If you’ve never heard of it, it is a gel that etched out plant fiber fabrics such as cotton, […]
