A Wee Bit Of Sewing…and Tutorials

Last w002eek I put this cute Xmas package runner together, did simple cross hatching and today I put the binding on.  It’s from the book  Christmas Favorites by 61F5w3RAwdL__SL500_AA300_Nancy


Halvorsen.  Isn’t that cover quilt cute.?  It’s on my to do list .  I have the fabric and decided it would be a project for next year, but since it’s National Sewing Month maybe I will start now..hmmmm! 

christmasthroughtheyearbutton Just a few more months and you know what will be here…are Darlene and I driving you crazy yet??  We sure hope not!!   Here’s some more wonderful tutorials for you, and thanks again to the amazing crafters for not only sharing their tutorials with us, but for letting me use their pictures!

Nikki at Whimsy Love has two really cute proj70368812898033898_G7EVj8ln_bects.  First a pattern for this great Soap Pouch…very clever and a tutorial for a Washcloth Travel Pouch.





Boy I lruffled tote tutorial_thumb[1]ove totes, and here’s a really super, duper cute one that Kari featured at U Create….tutorial here by Sierra at Blue Robin Cottage.  Love those ruffles.


Traci at Beneath My heart has this great tutorial for Easy Tile Coasters Made with Drink Napkins48906345923033959_BfLzr3jN_b …..oh the possibilities!!  So many cute napkins out at holiday time.  Having these on hand for gift giving will be great!!! Cute, inexpensive and easy is what Traci says!!


Such a cute Paper Holly Garland, and sewn on the machine too!!  Sinead has a tutorial here at The Hybrid Chick.

No plans for us for Labor Day…just relaxing (oh and sewin001g).  Our weather is still hot and humid, but the sky today was just about as blue as I have ever seen it here.  Come on Fall, I know you are lurking out there somewhere.  Happy week friends!

Those little packages are so darn cute! Love the soap pouch! You had the same sky we had yesterday...I said the same thing to Andy, don't think I've ever seen it that blue. Too hot here to do anything but SEW!
