Looking for a handy idea for holiday gift giving? Here is a cute Sewing Kit from our CT archives with pockets, a pincushion, and a needle case gathered up inside.
Yet again, my gifty galore project for this week is another project from Ayumi Takahashi's Patchwork, Please! As I've said before, this book
is full of wonderful projects. This time I chose the "Breakfast, Lunch
& Dinner Towels." This being one of the first projects in the book,
it quickly made its way onto my to-do list after the first time I
flipped through. Bright colors + text + linen = I'm sold. Since the
project was kitchen-oriented, I picked Nana's Pantry
as my collection of choice for this round. I love the vibrancy and
versatility of this collection and found it fun to mix and match prints for the different letters.
This is the Lasting Legacies Block of the Month, Block #1 for November. We are making two colorways of this block from the Lasting Legacies civil war collection. If you are interested in participating in our Lasting Legacies Quilt Along, feel free to join us. Just click here! Download the pattern for $5.99 or pick up the kit (which includes a FREE pattern!)
All are welcome and there is plenty of time to catch up as we are
constructing only two blocks a month. You will have access to all the
instruction located in the Discussion Forum to build the quilt along
with step-by-step images. This is a perfect project for beginners too!
As a young girl I purchased pre-printed pillowcases from a local
five-n-dime store. The images were sweet, quaint, and creatively
stimulating. The colors were beautiful and the embroidery threads
luscious. I enjoyed creating such a project in this FREE Emboidered Pillowcase Pattern with a bit more of a modern flair, and designed it with a holiday theme. The design is so simple, it can be embroidered in a day! Try it, it's free!
