Ultimate DIY Bundle + Giveaway

Somehow it went from New Year's Eve to the end of January in a blink of an eye! And it's looking like I'm getting off to a really slow start to the new year. Which is NOT what I had planned but oh well! Aside from hopefully getting back into the swing of things sewing and blogging-wise, I'm also wanting to get more organized at home so that I have more time to do the things I really want to do - like learning new things and learning more about the things I already love like photography, design, etc. I guess that's as close to a New Year's resolution as I'll get! Anyways, a few friends of mine have contributed sewing patterns, etc to the Ultimate DIY Bundle and filled me in on all the details which I thought I'd share with you. There is A LOT of stuff included which looks like it will really come in handy throughout the year.


For just $34.95, you get access to a carefully curated library of over 76 eBooks and eCourses from the world’s leading DIY and crafting bloggers – enabling you to pick a project and jump straight into it with confidence. It’s the perfect tool to skip the information overload and throw yourself straight into a new activity.

I know most of us here are into sewing and this bundle includes several great pdf sewing patterns (pictured below)!  Other topics included that I find interesting: photography, diy green cleaning recipes, diy organic beauty recipes, home decor tips, and much, much more.

sewing to sell - the beginner's guide to starting a craft business


Hey hey! I ended up taking a bit of an unplanned blogging hiatus but am popping in today to share a little about a new sewing related book that was recently released. My friend Virginia of Gingercake wrote Sewing To Sell  - The Beginner's Guide to Starting a Craft Business and it is an amazing resource in so many ways. If you've ever considered taking your sewing hobby to the next level but don't know where to start - this is the book for you! It covers just about everything you'll need to know to get a sewing based business started. 

Sewing To Sell includes info such as pricing and packaging, essential equipment, identifying your customer base, business basics, product photography tips, and more. It also includes 16 starter projects that you can make and sell. The projects include cutting guides for both single items as well as multiple items which is really helpful if you're trying to efficiently stock up your shop or get ready for a craft show. There are also interviews with craft sellers which include helpful tips (you'll find an interview with me in there!) 

The projects in the book would also be perfect anytime you need to make multiple gifts such as end of the year teacher gifts, holiday gift giving, etc. Some of the projects include an insulated lunch bag, a craft apron, a tablet sleeve, a kid's messenger bag, a handy organizer, and a cute baby bib and burp rag set. I really liked the organizer and made one for myself. I made just a few changes to personalize it a bit - I added leather to the outer pocket as well as a small leather card pocket inside the organizer. Instead of a tie closure, I added a tab with a snap. I love that it has lots of pockets and it's a manageable size. 

Make sure to check out the rest of the book tour for more project examples and sewing business tips and enter the giveaway below for a chance to win your own copy!



Giveaway is open to US residents only! Ends January 15th at midnight. Good luck!

nutta fabric shop blog tour. . .


I'm posting today as part of a blog tour to help promote a new fabric shop - Nutta Fabric! I actually got to meet and spend an afternoon with Shino, the owner; earlier this year before she moved back to Japan. We had a great time and I only wish we had realized we lived in the same area sooner. Luckily for us, she now has access to some amazing Japanese fabric and has opened a shop. Shino offered to send me some fabric from her shop to use for whatever I wanted to make. Decisions, decisions! I ended up choosing this cool linen / cotton blend in plaid and used it to make a Fawn Lily tunic for the kiddo. 

fabric |  linen & cotton plaid in red and blue      pattern | fawn lily dress & tunic


I felt that the shape and details of the Fawn Lily pattern would be a perfect match for the plaid. To add a little visual interest, I cut the sleeves and skirt of the tunic on the bias. The fabric is a really nice weight and has a great texture which I think gives the tunic a fall/winter vibe. The tunic works really well under a cardigan and I'm thinking it'll be great layered over a long sleeved tee as well. It's been in the 70's this week so a cardi was definitely optional. No children were subjected to actual winter weather for these photos ;)

daily to do list | free printable


If you're anything like me, you have a million to do lists stashed around your house, purse, car. . . and generally they're nowhere to be found when you need them. I have a *slight* addiction to office supplies, planners included. I buy one (or a few) every year but never use them! Silly. Anyways, I decided I'd make myself a to do list - something a bit more organized than a plain scrap of paper. Something that I can keep on my desk to refer back to as needed with boxes to check off. The heady sense of accomplishment I get from checking those little boxes might just be enough incentive to help keep my organized! In case you need some help in the organization department, I'm sharing this as a free printable - simply download, print, and get to work! (print on letter sized or A4 paper)
