Re: How to Hand-Sew a Buttonhole

elleba, AHH, Norrie2 & PegBroMac, so if you three can create perfect, professional buttonholes by hand that are a trillion times better than what is shown here (and frankly my dears, the appearance here is for visuals people like me can actually SEE the dang thing), then please, create a tutorial amongst the four of you amazing and perfect human beings to show us poor fools how it's done.

Crafty? That's a compliment! Homemade? You betcha, busting arse to do it too. And no, the instructions are not dumbed down (unless you are needlecraft goddesses, which you four clearly are).

This tutorial has done me a good turn, it's taught me something no one bothered to do, since by the time I was learning to sew, machines had evil buttonholers that hate me.

Re: Book Giveaway: Crafty Chica's Guide to Artful Sewing!

Looks like a very interesting book and will be a good addition to my crafty/sewing/knitting library!

Re: How to Hand-Sew a Buttonhole

Ya know, I was taught a lot of things in sewing, knitting, crochet, etc. Even attended a year of Fashion Design. But no one ever taught me how to handsew a buttonhole (or darn a sock for that matter)! Thanks for this, I've printed it out and am keeping it on hand, since the buttonhole maker on my machine hates me.

Re: How to Make a Catnip Pillow and Blanket

This is a FANTASTIC idea! I've a senior kitteh who had torn the ligament in her left hind leg a year ago, and now she's got a touch of arthritis in that joint. I'd been mulling insanely over how to make something that could be warmed up for her on bad days, and this looks to me like it will work perfectly. Plus, she's a nip addict, so double bonus! Thanks for sharing and this is now on my make asap list.
