As I said in my last tutorial, I have a few places I like getting fabric. For this tutorial, I’m using some lovely Little Red in The Woods fabric from Riley Blake Designs in this tutorial. 

I tend toward vintage or Parisian pastel prints or woodland and fairy tale fabrics (if you haven’t figured that out yet 😂). I find fabric from other Etsy sellers, Instagram buddies,Modes4U (they have Japanese kawaii fabrics, fairytale, children’s, and a lot of other designs that are hard to find in craft stores and with this link you get international free shipping with certain purchases), and Connecting Threads (which features quilting collections and more traditional prints).  

Next week, we’ll appliqué your finished hexie flower onto your mug rug!

DIY Hamster Bed Pouch

This hamster pouch makes the perfect burrow bedding for any rodent friend! It is a wonderful DIY pet project that can be made by hand-sewing stitches, or with a sewing machine, and your fur baby will much appreciate the love.

When I was a kid, my sister and I went through a hamster stage. We saved up money from birthdays and chores and bake sales, and bought ourselves a pair of baby dwarf hamsters.

They were adorable and fun for about a week--then horrible.

They were difficult to catch, bit us all the time, and smelled GAWD-awful.

After a while, they escaped their (very nice) cage we made for them, and either perished or made their way outside our house and got lost in the woods. Now, before you think this is a sad story--my love has been utterly renewed for the hamster species.

A few months ago, my mother--who is a real estate agent--went to help another agent clear out a rental house that had been vacated after some unsavory tenants left in the middle of the night.

Suffice to say, the sit…

Toddler YoYo Sewing Tutorial

This easy sewing craft makes a wonderful DIY toy for toddlers and preschoolers! The fascination of a bouncy yo-yo is usually frustrated by the difficulty for tiny arms. This toddler toy is a soft plush that is weighted by beans and bounces on an elastic string. The perfect DIY toy for summer boredom, birthdays, or Christmas stockings!

There's a soft spot in my heart for sewing. My first craft I ever really loved, I spent half of my high school career taking fashion design classes and thinking I'd get my degree in the domestic art.

Convinced otherwise by the disappointment of family and teachers, I focused on science and lingual degrees in college, only to find myself with my own business as an artist some 10 years later!
Hand sewing is one of my relaxation techniques, along with needle-felting and exercise. The "slow sewing" movement is important to me, because sewing on a machine can be so costly and intimidating (not to mention frustrating if something is going wrong)…

Narwhal Sew a Softie Pattern

This narwhal softie is an easy beginner sewing project for adults and children alike! Non-fraying wool felt and a few simple stitches will give you a cute project and sweet toy to treasure.

I've always had a soft-spot in my heart for the "unicorn of the sea." Narwhals are mysterious, beautiful creatures steeped in lore and loved by all unicorn fanatics (myself included). The Last Unicorn was easily one of my favorite movies as a girl, and that affection has not waned since!

With this life-long love interest, you can imagine my girlish squeal when helping my 2 year old son open Christmas presents to see that his aunt had bought him a copy of "Not Quite Narwhal" by Jesse Sima.

A fantastic--and very sweet--tale of a unicorn born to a family of narwhals in the ocean. He knows he's different from the moment he's born, because he doesn't quite fit in with other narwhals--although they love him all the same. One day a strong currant sweeps Kelp into an adven…
