Share Your Love for Sewing

11 Oct

I recently had a co-worker bring me a bunch of different fabrics that range in texture, pattern and size and with the cost of fabric, even for remnants, I certainly appreciated it! She said when she heard I sewed and how much I loved learning new techniques and trying my hand at new patterns, she wanted to give me some of her fun patterns and lots of fabric to create with, especially since I’m trying my hand at quilting! She is one of those talented ladies who makes her own fabulous work clothes, among other things, and always looks great! Not only did she give the gift of fabric but I also have a new resource when I have questions about a project. 🙂

So the lesson learned here is to share the news about your sewing hobby and maybe your friends will share some free advice, patterns, or…free fabric!

Sew, what do you have the “notion” to share?

Sew Into Recycling

29 Jan

If you love that old sweatshirt but it’s too small I have just the project for you! Turn it into a washable Stadium Seat Cushion. How about those old cargo pants and t-shirt your son outgrew? Why not make a messenger bag! No need to toss out those old clothes when you can get creative with them and give them a new life! There’s lots of ideas floating around on the web to reuse those old clothes and create something new! Check out my projects! What have you recycled that you SEW love again??
