Re: Last Chance to Choose the Winner

Wow!!!...It is hard to decide which is my favorite...they are all so well designed and sewn!But since I can only pick one I will choose Lauraleeva's Fun Spring Dress. I love the blouse with the bow,the print on the skirt along with fullness. The sash ties it all together quite nicely. Making the outfit as one piece is very clever. Well done!!!

Re: How to Make a Scalloped Front Skirt

I love this design!!! I will without a doubt make this skirt enjoying every moment.The interesting thing is that I have made a band with a scalloped edge for a plain blanket to add a little pazzaz. I was not able to give the edge a nice smooth finish. I will follow the method to finish the edge described above which I'm sure will do the trick. Thank you for sharing this design and method for this wonderful skirt!!!!

HI...Love the look!! Many of the techniques I have used in different projects and forgotten about....I will definitly try the buttons on the side plus use the triple zigzag tac and look for the Simflex Ruler.

Re: Book Giveaway: The Bold and the Beautiful: Button It Up

Buttons are a passionate subject for me. I have been collecting them for many years and have soooo many that I have organized them into divided craft boxes ( embroidery floss containers) and those little round stacking containers so I can find exactly what I want when I want it! This book would certainly give me more ideas on what I can use these buttons for. Besides if I use the buttons I have on hand then I will have a reason to purchase more or make some!!!
