Radio Silence

I’ve been busy working on some sewing projects, but I can’t show them to you yet because they are Christmas presents! I’ll post some pictures of each thing after Christmas when the cat is out of the bag. Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas, everyone! Read more »


Sassy “C” Zipper Pouch

Sassy “C” Zipper Pouch

Here is another zipper pouch I made last week. It is part of a birthday present for my son’s friend (a girl). When he saw the Cameo zipper pouch I made, he said, “I think Coco would like a bag like that, too.” He said the bag should be orange to match the orange Nerf football he is also giving her.

Cameo Zipper Pouch

I finally made my Amy Butler Cameo Sew-A-Long project this week. Woo hoo! I had a hard time deciding what to make but finally decided on something small: a zipper pouch.

There may very well be a future post from me on that topic as well. Read more »


Amy Butler Cameo Sew-A-Long

I saw on Twitter today that Amy Butler is kicking off a sew-a-long to celebrate the launch of her new Cameo collection. The details are all right here. You can pick any project you’d like, you just have to use Cameo fabric and post pictures of the project to her Flickr group along the way. This sounds right up my alley, especially since I bought a whole fat quarter bundle of Cameo last week when it was 40% off at Craftsy. Anyone want to do it with me? Read more »
