do. Good Stitches

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

I get a lot of joy out of quilting and sewing, but most of the sewing that I do would be classified as “selfish sewing.” It’s sewing that I do for me because I want to. I don’t feel too bad about this because I work hard at my job and sewing is one of […]

Sprout Sloan Leggings by Hey June

Published by under Sewing

A while back I wanted a quick and easy project. So I ordered some Sloan Leggings from Sprout patterns. I’ve mentioned Sprout before. The Sloan Leggings are a pattern by Hey June. And this is definitely a super quick and easy project.     The fabric is printed by Spoonflowe so it comes wrapped nicely.   […]

More Halloween Fun

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

Some more decoration for Halloween. I worked on a Halloween quilt this year (more details on that in another post). And using the leftover fabric, I decided to make a little festive table decoration. The overall design was pretty simple. Just laid out the squares and sewed them together. After doing so, it wasn’t quite […]

iPad Pencil Holder

Published by under Sewing

  My husband has one of those Apple Pencils to go with his iPad but he has a hard time keeping track of it, so he asked me to make him a holder for it that could attach to his iPad.     I actually made him two. One from leather and one from lycra. […]

Random 8th Grade Sewing Project

Published by under Sewing

Back when I was in 8th grade, you could still take home ec. It was the BEST class. We got to cook and sew and learn about color theory and did I mention, sew? Yeah, we got to sew for school. At that point, I had already been sewing for fun for a while so […]

Murder Mystery Quilt – April and May

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

So, I’m a tad behind in posting. As usual, getting pictures from my camera to my blog always takes longer than expected. Here’s the block from Chapter 4 for April. For this one, we did reverse appliqué. Above is after I based the green pieces to the back using quilt basting spray. I also starched […]

Swoon Bonnie Bucket Bag in Silver Faux Leather

Published by under Sewing

  Admittedly I’ve been on a bit of a bag kick recently. It didn’t help that I signed up for the Bag of the Month Club 🙂 But this one isn’t from that club — although coincidentally the bag for May is also from Swoon Patterns. This is the Swoon Bonnie Bucket Bag. I really […]

Polaris Bag — March, Bag of the Month Club

Published by under Sewing

  This month for the Bag of the Month Club, Sew Sweetness was the designer. The bag was a cute little hand purse which I decided to make. You may notice that I have not posted the bag for February. That’s because I haven’t made it. It’s not a bag I think I’d use, so […]

Mighty Lucky Quilting Club – February

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

For February for Mighty Lucky Quilting Club, the focus was on improv quilting and “less is more.” I hadn’t really done improv quilting before, so this was a fun exercise, although I’m not sure it’s really something I’ll spend much time doing in the future. First, I picked out some fabrics. The green is my […]

Murder Mystery Quilt – March

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

Earlier this week we got the next chapter — and the next block — in the murder mystery quilt. Grabbed some scraps and whipped it up pretty quickly. It’s so fun to see the story unfolding!
