I'm excited to announce that my younger (but obviously cooler) sister has just published her first sewing book. I pre-ordered my copy months ago, so I was excited to find it in my mailbox last week. Simple Sewing: 30 Fast and Easy Projects for Beginners by Katie Lewis (affiliate link).
The Red Kitchen. Be sure to check in everyday as you see some of your favorite bloggers show off their creations from the book...and there will be lots of chances to win a free copy.
And I've been really enjoying this little sewing pouch. I won a little giveaway from Amanda at Jedi Craft Girl. As part of the giveaway we were supposed to say what we'd use the pouch for if we won. Anson had just been getting into the little cubbie in my sewing machine that holds my sewing machine needs, extra feet, etc, so I said I'd use it for all those little sewing machine extras. Boy was I wowed when this arrived and she'd picked the perfect coordinating fabric.
And now all my little extras as tucked safe inside. Anson still gets into the the sewing machine itself, but hasn't shown interest in this yet...so problems solved. Amanda has a simple tutorial for making these little zipper pouches here, if you want to make one for yourself or as gifts.
And in case you missed the announcement, We've got a quilt-along going on. I'm hoping to have lesson 2 up by the end of the day, but it's not too late to join in the fun. You can see Lesson 1 here and sign up. There are already 30 or so people sewing along with us. It should be fun.
And there are still some photos trickling in of finished quilts from the Hexies-by-Halves Quilt Along. I love this one that Emily made. The colors are just so fun and I like the creative pieced backing.
Please show my sponsors some love...
