Megan made this awesome vinyl coated fabric tote bag. The pattern she used to create her bag was Anna Maria Horner’s “Multi-Tasker Tote Bag.” The vinyl coated fabric is from Moda’s Cosmo Cricket line. I love the retro feel of the “typewriter letters” and the “giant numbers” make a nice contrast against the black. Megan said the pattern is better for someone who is an intermediate sewer and has had some experience with sewing bags before.


There’s nothing better on a cold rainy day then snuggling up in a pair of flannel pajamas! Dana made these fabulous pj’s from McCalls pattern 4320! The pattern was simple and easy to follow but to spice it up she decided to choose a coordinating fabric for the yolk and hem! The two flannels she used are from the “Cozy Collection” by Robert Kaufman. They are so soft you’ll melt like butter when you touch them!.

The best part is Dana is teaching these wonderful pj’s in a two part beginning sewing class that starts 1/23. Come in and learn how to make some cozy pj’s of your own!


Tera completely designed and created the fabric for this fun wrap dress. She started out with natural Osnaburg, then dyed it Violet. Next she used the potato stamping technique and carved a lotus flower out of the potato and stamped the fabric with a pink fabric paint.
For the dress pattern she used the Decades of Style 1948 Siren Sundress pattern.
For the final touch she embroidered a buddha head from the Sublime Stitching pattern called “om sweet om.” Hope this dress inspires you to get your creative mojo flowing!
