Another Sugar Pop Top

Sugar Pop Top

I know I promised to blog the tops I made for my girls, but I got hit with the flu last week and I didn’t finish 2 of the tops… and then sewing ADD kicked in and I started new projects, like a pillow and this Sugar Pop Top. I actually made it twice- the first one was too small. Obviously I need to start exercising and eating less chocolate (or simply measuring twice and cutting once). Lucky for me I had enough of this fabric for […]

This month over at Project Run and Play, I am a featured designer from Season 6. That was the most intense thing I have ever done! This time, however, I am the one calling the sew-along competition for May! I’ve chosen the Summer Chevrons Shirt as the challenge pattern, and you are welcome to sew along! Using the pattern and tutorial, create a unique garment that will stand out above the other contestants. There are prizes involved for the winner (Over $100 worth!)! So get sewing! Voting begins the final week of May, so have […]

May Visiting Teaching Printable Handouts

The visiting teaching message for this month is supposed to come from any of the General Conference addresses given last month, so the May Visiting Teaching Printables are my own picks. There were so many wonderful messages, and it was difficult for me to sift through all my favorites to find a few to share with my Sisters I visit. In the end, I was a sucker for the music analogy from Elder Anderson, and also the wonderful truth of Elder Renlund’s talk on […]

Goodform Chairs before

A few weeks ago we were on a family walk around our neighborhood and I spotted a pair of vintage chairs in someone’s bulk trash pile out on the curb. We were a few houses away from the chairs yet, but I jabbed Mike in the ribs and said, “I want those chairs!!” Someone was outside in the yard, so Mike asked (I was too scared. ‘Hi, can I have your trash?’ I was a bit embarrassed!) if we could haul them home, and they obliged. The chairs […]

Teacher Gifts Goodie Bag

Teacher Gifts Goodie Bag

I’m still putting together a few somethings for my girls’ teachers at school, and I decided to wrap it all up in a Teacher Gifts Goodie Bag. There’s not a whole lot going in this bag (although more than our usual fare!), but my girls picked out the contents and requested the tags, so I hope their teachers love it!

Germ Juice

My oldest daughter really, really wanted “Germ Juice” for her teacher. I think her previous teacher […]

Carpenter Star Quilt

Solid Carpenter Star Quilt

I’ve been doing quite a bit of quilting lately! I have two Twin-size quilts out to be long-arm quilted right now, but while I was waiting for those to come back I needed a fast and small project to work on. The modern quilting mantra has been “go solids or go home” lately, which is totally something I can handle! I decided to make a small version of this Carpenter Star Quilt, and in purple. People either love or hate purple, I am in the love […]

Flutter Top Free Pattern and Tutorial

Well, hello friends! ¬†I’ve had this Flutter Top Pattern in my drafts for… weeks now. I felt like it was still too cold up here in the Northern Hemisphere, but since temps are slowly working their way up, it was time to share! It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a tutorial around here. This top is really a cute twist on a basic t-shirt, still comfortable but with a dash of interest at the sleeve.

Triangle Block Cheat Sheet Printable by the Crafty Cupboard

For the longest time now, I’ve been making my HST’s and QST’s based off of a little piece of printer paper with scribbled notes on block size vs. cut square sizes so I wouldn’t have to do the math. Last night as I once again referred to it, I decided it was long past due to make a little cheat sheet that I could keep out and wouldn’t be such an eyesore! I made a Triangle Block Cheat Sheet Free Printable for […]
