Christmas Stocking Pattern










Anyone making stockings this year?  Here's a sweet stocking pattern by Cluck Cluck Sew.  You can find it HERE!

You might want to check out Pinterest as well.  It has loads of interesting stocking tutorials and patterns.🧡

Table Topper & Mug Rugs





What a nice little Christmas gift... a table topper and mug rugs.  They are an easy sew!

 I don't know about you but I'm not very good at free motion quilting.  Seems the bobbin tension is the problem even after trying for hours!  I do love sewing the pieces together though.  Wavy or straight lines are just fine but to do twirls, loops and whatever, no.  I really admire people that have the "gift" of free motion quilting.

The Rose Fabric Bag Tutorial

The Rose Fabric Bag made by Carmen B.








 Carmen embroidered  two sides  of the bag, and quilted on  the other two sides.  The center front and back were also quilted, while the straps were embroidered with a designer stitch and multi coloured thread.

This bag was recycled from a pair of jeans!  I think you would agree  this is one lovely bag!

Thank you for allowing me to share your bag Carmen!  Beautiful job!

ROSE FABRIC BAG - Pattern Pieces

The Rose Fabric Bag now has PATTERN PIECES!  I just finished  them a few days ago. They are now included in the tutorial on Bluprint.    It's an easy bag to make, and now takes even less time because you don't have the measuring to do.

 I listened to several women discussing bag tutorials,  whether they liked the pattern pieces , or just  measurements.  I have to say I was surprised with their response.  The majority didn't mind either way.  A few responded that they wouldn't even consider buying a bag tutorial without the pattern pieces.  Either way, this tutorial now works for both!

The bag is so versatile.  You can easily add a recessed zipper, shoulder strap, use various pieces of bag hardware, foam,  add a few more pockets, maybe an outer zipper pocket,  or change the size of the box corners.  There are so many ways you can add to it to make it your very own!!  The tutorial can be found here on BLUPRINT.

FREE Cosmetic Pod Pattern



For those interested in a  free sewing pattern,  Diane Spencer Ogg has a new pattern release.  She's an amazing lady from the United Kingdom.  Above is the Cosmetic Pod, a quick easy sew which takes approximately 30 minutes.  It consists of two pattern pieces.  This is ideal for Craft Fairs and/or a gift for that special friend.

 An added bonus is a You Tube sew-along video to go with the pattern.   It is easy to follow, no distractions and no excess talking.  Diane also has other patterns you can  purchase, which I would say are exceptional, as is her work.

This pattern  can be found on Diane's blog  HERE.  and the You Tube video HERE..
