An archive of sewing tutorials and inspiration


Working on a ton as usual…

I don't have to much time to write this morning, but I did want to squeeze in a little W.i.P Wednesday post for you all to see what I have been up to lately.

Throughout the week when I am working on things I usually will take photos with my phone and share on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram(pileofabric), and Flickr. So some of you may have seen these out and out about, but this is my first time sharing them here on the blog.

Fabric Pull for my Handmade Giveaway

I am really close to 1000 likes on Facebook and once I have reached 1000 I will be having a handmade giveaway, for my Facebook fans. This lovely Kona Cotton I have pulled for one of the handmade items I will be giving away. It will be my first handmade giveaway and I am quite excited!

Working on some embroidery for a special project :)

I have been working on this fun seed stitching embroidery project. This is for something really really exciting! I haven't shared much about it on the blog yet, because I thought it'd be a fun surprise. But, the anticipation is KILLING me!

PTS9 - What do you think so far partner?

This is the front of the pillow I am making for Pillow Talk Swap round 9. I have had some issues slowing me down. Lets just say white is not easy to keep white :( I am hoping to start on the back asap as this is due November 15th.

Hoop-La-La Fabric Pull

This is a fabric pull for another swap I am participating in called Hoop-La-La. I have my plan to use hexagons and embroidery, this is due in a week :| so I better hurry up!


I participated in a Block Swap and just got all my blocks back in the mail the other day. Look at these lovelies! I made the one in the upper right hand corner. I want to make a large throw with these so I will probably make a few more and i'd also like to add a super granny in the center.
