Here’s what I’ve got so far for my Stitch Craft fabric collection on Spoonflower…
Over at I Have to Say, Randi is having a big Spring Cleaning sale in her Etsy shop, Fresh Squeezed Fabric (a long time favorite of mine!), and a gift certificate giveaway on her blog. 20% off everything in her shop until Monday, April 5th. She’s got lots of great stuff! And I envy that… Read More
One more new design. I plan to play with the colors and layout on this one a lot more. But this is the first version. I was aiming for a design that I could do in a lot of colorways…I doodled these little icons. I figure I can do just sewing, just embroidery and just… Read More
First I started out touting the miracle of paper piecing hexagons. Then I quickly figured out that basting in the little papers was double the work – for me, anyway. Many people swear by it.

Not very impressive – 2.5 yards used and 18 items made. 18 sounds like a lot, but camera straps just don’t use much yardage. I just need more sewing time! Someone sent me a convo today… Read More
As soon as I posted a few camera straps, I had requests for boy-appropriate fabric. Don’t boys want to carry little tiny Wizard of Oz characters? I guess not. So this week, I brought my son, and we looked and looked for something cool. This is not really in the spirit of stashbusters, but I… Read More
