Handmade Holiday Planning Tool - A Gift for You!

   So, if any of you are like me (and I am pretty sure you are), you love giving handmade holiday presents to the people you love.  And if you are even more like me, you usually end up finishing them at the last minute, frantically, at night, after a few last minute trips to the local store, because you can not wait for shipping.     Our goal this year, friends, is to avoid that!  Our goal is to plan, be organized and sew away while filled with peace, love, your favorite tasty beverage and with holiday music blasting away over the noise of your machine.  Our goal, is no last minute trips to the store.      And I have...

Handmade Halloween Costume Roundup

Halloween, friends, Halloween!  I love it! I may even have a Halloween movie playing on Netflix in the background while I write this post.  It might be Practical Magic.  You will never know for sure.  But really, the thing I love the most is planning and making costumes. I love looking at other people's plans for costumes.  I love when my three year old changes her mind every three days and I end up finishing her costume 5 minutes before we go trick or treating. Wait. No, that last part can't be right. This year I am making an effort to make their costumes with plenty of time to spare, and I thought some of you might want to give...

White Jersey Fabric - The Perfect Blank Canvas

   When looking through all of the gorgeous fabrics Art Gallery Fabrics sells and putting together my first big order, there was one fabric that definitely stood out from the rest.      Normally I am all about beautiful prints and bright colors, matching be damned!  I want to swoon over and pet the pretty fabrics and sew gorgeous things. So why? Why would I order solid white jersey?     Well, the first reason is, Art Gallery Fabrics jersey is soft, has 4 way stretch and holds up to repeated washing and general clothes mistreatment, better than any other jersey I have sewn with.     But even more importantly, I ordered it because white is the perfect canvas for almost limitless...
