The Ultimate Sewing Room contest entry
I hope I win this one!!!
Ohhh I just love this. It's like a B&B for fairies. I can't wait to take a walk in the evening to find magical things for my fairies. Thank you.
very cool! Love it.
Sweet! Can't wait to make Swiffer socks for all my friends. I love this! Thank you for the great tutorial.
ooohhhh I love pillowcases! I'd love this book!
Fun! Sign me up for a chance to win
oh, so cute! great stashbuster, too. Thanks for the nice tutorial.
Looks great!!! I would love to win this book!
Thanks Patzee and Betz for the tips on the websites to purchase PUL!! I'll definitely be placing my order soon!
ugh...poor lighting in my cramped up apartment and living in a small rural town with NO good fabric/craft stores. Oh.. and here's another one... when my husband uses my sewing shears to cut something other than fabric (like cardboard or aluminum foil) and the worst thing yet.... people telling me that they can buy the same thing at Wal-Mart or Target and not have to "mess with doing it themselves". ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! See if they get a HAND quilted baby blanket or HAND crocheted sweater from me ever again!!!!
I really, really want to make some of these and give as gifts to a few friends for Earth Day coming up in April but I'm having difficulty finding the PUL fabric. I checked out diapercuts.com and she is not taking orders at this time due to maternity leave. None of the local chain fabric stores even know what I'm talking about. Please please please can someone help me locate a website or a place to purchase this fabric! I love this idea and thank you so much for the tutorial. (oh, and I'd be thrilled to win the book too; hint,hint lol)
I always knew I was supposed to block my squares but never took the time to do it because I thought it was too much trouble. This method is sooo easy! It's kinda like ironing your seams flat when sewing quilt blocks.... a little bit of time and effort makes all the difference in the world. Thanks for the great tutorial.
I've heard of this method before (I think it was called 'birthing a quilt') but never really knew how to do it. This is a great tutorial and a project I can't wait to try. Thank you Diane! Thanks also to LindaPermann for the tip on using a large running stitch to make tying the quilt faster and easier.
Thanks for the recipe! I've looked for something to mist around those musty linen closets and basement storage areas. This is so much better than perfume-laden air fresheners and Febreze.
My mom lovingly saved my 'Josie and the Pussycats' sheets and I can't wait to make these bags from them!
I do agree with susanbrownknitting about the corners; I understand how to do them but an inexperienced sewer may have some trouble. It still takes me a minute or two to "get" things when I make a project for the first time. Maybe one more pic and a few lines would clear it up.
I really love this. Thanks for the cool idea.
Was doing some after-Christmas cleaning just today and decided to save that stack of this year's Christmas cards.. Now I have the perfect way to use them! Thanks for the really cool idea!!!
I mixed up a few batches of this and added it to a basket with some pedicure essentials to give as Christmas gifts to my fellow nurses. This stuff makes a great foot soak and the peppermint really perks up those tired achy feet. The baskets were perfect for giving the gift of rejuvenation! Love it and thanks for sharing. I can't wait to experiment with other "flavors".
This is such a great idea! Thanks for the well-written tutorial and pictures. This would be a nice club project to salvage old sweaters and turn them into hats for the local homeless shelters. You could get a standardized mens/womens measurement to fit most adults. I think it would be a nice way to help keep someone warm this winter and use up those shrunken wool sweaters that we all have hanging around in the closets. Can't wait to get started on this project!
