Holiday decorations don't have to be the traditional red and green to be festive. These tiny symbols of fashion not only make great ornaments, gift tags, or saches, but they're also super easy to make: you can prepare, quilt, and construct them in less than an hour.
Hi, my name is Jennifer Stern, and I am so pleased to have this opportunity to share my embroidery stories and adventures (filled with both designer details and character builders) with you. Oh, and be sure to check out the Pricked exhibit at the Museum of Art and Design.

I can't think of anything cuter and easier to stitch up than a perky cocktail apron a la Lucille Ball. It makes a great accessory for entertaining (what a conversation starter!) or the perfect unique gift all for under $10 and less than half an hour of your sewing time.

I love fine sewing but I don't always have the time to finish an entire garment. To practice my savvy stitching techniques, I like to test-drive them on a smaller project, like a trendy, designer-inspired bag.
