Scrappy Fabric Projects.


One of my favorite things to do is sew all my tiny scraps together and make pin cushions.


And I love the challenge of getting the squares to match up perfectly… Although it doesn’t seem to happen but I’m still happy because there is a term called wonky...yeah that’s what I do..wonky sew my pin cushions!  
You can see that the points don’t match up but it’s still cute anyway.
Art Gallery Prints have been one of my favorite fabric choices lately 

Remember it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful. I have made a few because I’m giving them away as gifts. 

I have been sewing for about 14 years and I just started working with these clips...

They are a must have when piecing together blocks.  You know how when you try to pin them the fabric moves?? Well with clips there is no shift in the fabric. I use them when I sew my surgical hats as well as when I'm piecing my quilt blocks together. 

I decided to get the affiliate link for them because I promote them so much! 
This is another gift I give my sewing friends.


I also decided to make a video tutorial using my scraps, you can find it here:

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
