It is Valentine’s Day again and the perfect time for a love heart design. I have been working hard on learning to use Illustrator lately. My skills are still very basic but last week I made this design. It is a simple two layered heart design that can be appliquéd on anything you’d like in any colour you’d like. Love hearts don’t have to be red or pink.Read More
Happy New Year Everyone,
I hope you have had a good holiday season. Hopefully you got a break and were able to catch up with some family or friends, or maybe both.
A new year can also be a fresh start.
Here in Australia it is summer holidays at the moment and a new school year starts at the end of January for most kids.
So my first project on the blog for 2019 is a very easy pencil case project.
It is almost Christmas time and this year I haven’t had time to make any new tutorials. I haven’t had time for any Christmas sewing at all, which is a shame since I have so many pretty Christmas fabrics.
Two Christmases ago I posted this post about how to make these Christmas pillows. You can find the post here. The pillow on the left is made from a pattern from Diary of a Quilter’s Amy Smart. You can find the post here.
Last year I found a picture on Pinterest of a table runner that I made with Christmas and wrote this post about how I made my own version. You can find the post here.
These cute little Christmas bags is a great way to use scraps of Christmas fabric. You can find the tutorial on my tutorials page or here.
I hope you have time for some Christmas sewing. It is still two weeks left until Christmas, hopefully I have some time too. Or I have to plan better and start earlier next year. Don’t forget to enjoy Christmas time, it is very hot here so tomorrow I am going to the beach with my teenage daughters.
Until next time, happy sewing and take care.
I have a new PDF Sewing Pattern for the intermediate/advanced sewer. It is a laptop/tablet case that comes in two sizes and would be a great Christmas gift that could be personalised in a lot of different ways. Most of us have tablets or laptops that we want to protect when we are on the move.
Last week I made this dress for my youngest daughter. Spring is just around the corner here in Australia and it is always nice with a new dress when the warmer weather arrives.
