We have been getting some pretty awesome new Halloween prints in, and I have been feeling very inspired! This bat shaped sleep mask is a super quick project that only takes a little bit of fabric! Let’s get started!

Hey every one! Today we are going to make an awesome scarf using a couple fun sewing techniques like a flat felled seam, and a hem using a rolled hemmer foot. This is a great project for an advanced beginner, its all straight seams but takes a little bit of finesse, and we are using a rayon which is a little bit of a wiggly fabric… But its all fun, and pretty basic I promise! Okay, so what you will need for this project is:

This simple tote has an envelope bottom which makes a professional finished look with a squared off bottom.   The tote is made out of a 100% Hemp fabric in natural.  The Hemp fabric is perfect for a tote bag, it’s durable and washable.  I added a gold metallic thread on the lower looper of the Janome 1100D Serger to give it a more decorative finish.  Includes pocket in interior.  This tote can be made using a sewing machine if you do not have a serger.  You will need metallic needles if using a sewing machine with metallic thread.  Lets get started!


3/4 yard Hemp or Canvas

1 spool gold metallic thread

Metallic Thread Needles (You only need this if using sewing machine instead of serger)

Today I decided to play around with one of the project they included in their little booklet which we got at quilt market. Its a bag pattern that Rashida Coleman-Hale put together using her Moonlit Collection. I decided I have enough little bags hanging around but I can ALWAYS use some throw pillows! So I modified the project a bit and thought I’d share how!

Materials If you are going to match the pattern exactly like what I did you will need 2″ of each print. I recommend getting a fat quarter of each so you have some awesome scraps left over. Here are the prints I used:     Continue reading
