seam 006Honestly, I had a hard time titling this post. It was sort of hard to describe what I was talking about in a few words. Let me try in more detail: You know when you make a lined bag and you leave a hole in the lining through which to turn the bag right-side out at the end? And then you need to turn the seam allowances of the hole in and press it and sew it shut? Well, this is a nifty, simple little trick that automatically turns the seam allowances in for you for easy sewing.

tool belt 019Here’s some inspiration for a pretty trio of pillows with coordinating prints and some interesting solids to add texture. The large pillow has a light blue square in the center made of burlap. The medium pillow has a velvet-textured gray stripe. All of them have piping, just because I love it, and envelope openings on the back for easy removal of the pillow form.

BEST OF ALL: YOU CAN WIN THESE! Just enter a comment at the bottom of this post. A winner will be randomly drawn on Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014. — NOTE: CONTEST IS OVER! Winner is Lenka. Read the rest of this entry »

pillows 024If you are a regular reader, you might have noticed that I love classic linen with bright, bold piping or serging. This pillow utilizes the piping not just around the edges but also as stripes across the pillow front. It’s simple to do. I made this pillow cover with an envelope opening on the back, which is my favorite pillow cover closure.

tag blanket 022You may be wondering what a tag blanket is. It’s a blanket-like plaything for babies that utilizes soft fabrics and interesting ribbons, cords, lace and other things to stimulate babies visually and tactilely. This one is owl shaped because I was inspired by the owl fabric, but you can easily make one that’s a simple square or rectangle. Use short ribbons, long ribbons, lace, piping, cording, ric-rac — whatever you want! I braided some, twisted some, looped some, doubled some of them up. Just make it interesting however you can. Most sewers can probably find enough scrap items in their cabinet to whip something like this up for a nearby baby. Any baby will do.
