    Dsc_0435_listing

    I decided to make 4 of these little skirts as gifts for some upcoming birthdays. I love how easy they were to make, and how cute the finished product is! I might become addicted to shirring ;-).

    Dsc_0199_listing

    I made this Mara blouse as a mommy and me to the MHC Valencia. I will likely never wear the Valencia though, so little miss will just be rocking this by herself! She loves it – I think she can tell…

    auschick added the project Triangle Quilt
    Dsc_0869_listing

    Even though I don’t really quilt, I decided that last Christmas, I would make my sister a quilt as her gift. I’m still convinced that one is either a clothes sewist or a quilter. For me, I would mu…

    When sewing knits with a sewing machine, use a twin needle with regular polyester thread and then put “stretch” or bulky nylon thread in the bobbin. You then don’t need to adjust the tension settin…
