Exciting News!

Things have been quiet around here the last few weeks, but it’s not for lack of projects going on! I’ve been busy with some great projects for Quilt Market (Less than 8 weeks away, eek!), and working on a couple of projects for the lovely ladies at Pretty Prudent, Jacinda and Jaime!

Little sneak peek!

I can’t wait to share the projects with you, but alas, you’ll have to wait until Market for the new patterns and the release of an entire new product line! Next Fall will be the release of the Pretty Prudent book. Only hint I can give you is a link to Jacinda’s Spoonflower shop! Sorry!

Oh, and did I mention that I’m now part of Janome’s Education team? I’ve loved Janome for years (I sew on the Memory Craft 8900 and the 634D Serger), and have been teaching sewing for over 15 years so becoming an educator for them was a perfect fit! Looking forward to some fun projects coming up with them too!

Happy Sewing,

Zoe Bag Alternate Front

2013-03-28 14.27.56

This is one of my favorite bag patterns! I love the size and the ability to make so many different fronts to the bag! This is one I made a little while ago to welcome summer. Here's how to make this bag flap. (If you don't already have the pattern … Read more…

Metallic Echino Clutch

2013-06-24 11.39.15

I've been having lots of fun with some Echino Metallic fabric that Callie from CityCraft sent me to play around with. She carries it in 3 great colorways and I had such a hard time deciding what to make with them! The one on the top with the royal … Read more…

The Secret To Movie Theater Popcorn

MovieTheaterPopcornRecipe

One of my all time favorite snack foods is popcorn! I'd eat it every day if I could! For the longest time I figured that to get the taste of movie theater popcorn at home I'd have to purchase an expensive popcorn machine. (Because, let's face it, the … Read more…

I though I'd share the applique design I sketched up if anyone wanted to use it. It's the perfect size for a zippered pouch, onesie, place mats, napkins, or wallet! In the download I have all the individual pieces (already reversed for tracing onto the back of your Heat'n Bond!), and a little placement diagram so you can see how all the pieces layer and fit together. You can download the PDF of the Scooter here!
