Happy Sewing!



  1. Thank you so much for your wonderful ideas and finding these terrific sites. I enjoy your site so much and look forward daily to seeing what you will do next . Thank you again.

  2. Lisa–Thank you so much for keeping up with this! I have loved all of your ideas and have made a bunch of stuff. I’m trying to get a blog rolling so i can post pics of my goodies. I’ll let you know when it’s up and running.

  3. thanks girls! Glad I could help!

    With friendship,

  4. Thanks a million. My mom loves to sew, and this will be a great resource for her. I will let her know about your site….

  5. Hello I was wondering if a person was allowed to make the designs featured on this site and sell them at a craft fair or similar type event. I am unemployed so I’m looking for things I can do to bring in a little extra money since unemployment doesn’t pay very well. lol.

  6. I was googling sewing christmas gifts, and found this thread. I love it! Thank you so much for putting this together!

  7. Stella MacDonald says:

    Please could you tell me where you got your moderatley stiff strip of single sided fusible interfacing from?

  8. Stella…not sure what exactly you are referring to, but I’m thinking Stiffy interfacing might work.

  9. I am SO impressed with this site and discovered it through just plain surfing the net. I cannot tell you how much time I have spent looking through as much as possible so would be really pleased if you would send me new posts. With sincere thanks, Carol, Cape Town, South Africa.

  11. Im in grade 8, not the best sewer, i only have material with desings on it plus I don’t have a sewing machine. Is there any simple projects that you know a girl who is 10 years old would like? It’s alright if I need to go and buy fabric.

  12. Hi again if you can could you email me about how to make easy little projects that I could sell? Or just any small little projects that you find. Thanks
