I’m changing it up a little today! This pattern isn’t for a wearable item, but instead a great idea for all the little girls AND boys in your life! I’m thinking that with a few modifications it would be easy enough to put together with a hot glue gun if you’re not the sewing type. 😉
This fun pattern/tutorial comes from Everyday Celebrations and would make a fantastic gift for the toddlers in your life. Certainly a project I need to find time to put together for my 18-month old. Although truthfully it would be easier if someone with a cricut/silhouette could be convinced to cut the letters out for me!
Although we have yet to see much snow in our area, our winter temps have certainly made their chilly presence known. When I’m outside playing I’m a huge fan of toasty gloves and mittens but when driving I dislike the feel of the material on the steering wheel.
With scraps upon scraps of fleece fabric here in my stash I was super excited to receive this tutorial in my inbox the other day — my hope is to sneak this project in somewhere over the weekend!
The tree is down, decorations are put away and the dust of holiday chaos is beginning to settle. With that said it’s the perfect (down)time to start working on projects for Valentine’s Day!
These cute zippered pouches would make great gifts for the favorite people in your life. They’re even the perfect size to fill with conversation hearts!

Here’s another quick sewing project to help fill out your Christmas project list! I think these would be super cute as stocking stuffers for your kids for their beds or to take on sleepovers.
As you check items off of your holiday shopping list(s), take a second to think about exactly how you’re going to give those wonderful gifts!
Instead of traditional wrapping paper how about using fabric scraps to make some cute drawstring bags?

As a small business owner I understand the importance of supporting other entrepreneurs. Small Business Saturday nestles itself in the midst of Black Friday and Cyber Monday to drive sales to the small(er) guys and gals.
The 2nd annual Small Business Saturday® is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses on one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year.
On November 26, we’re asking millions of people to Shop Smallsm at their favorite local stores and help fuel the economy. When we all shop small, it will be huge.
Many shops are running great specials through the weekend. Stop in and see your favorite local shop owners, take the time to check a local business you’ve never frequented or head over to some of my online favorites!

Denise over at Whimsy Couture is once again, gearing up for the launch of ANOTHER great pattern. This ruffle scarf is super easy to sew and she’s donating proceeds to help breast cancer research!
As always, I love testing for her. She’s hoping to have the pattern available for purchase sometime tomorrow. When it’s purchasable I’ll make sure to let you know!
The more time I spend in the kitchen, the more I find myself wearing more and more aprons. I’d like to say I’m just trying to be more fashionable as I grow up but I don’t think that’s completely the case (my one apron says, “beef — it’s what’s for dinner”). Perhaps I make more of a mess as I get older. Or maybe I’m just getting tired of trying to remove spots/stains from the clothing of three other people in the house and I don’t want to remove grease stains from my own. (Ding, ding, ding!! We have a winner!!)
No matter the reason, I’m always on the lookout for cute functional patterns for aprons. I think this one for the Hostess Apron over on Sew4Home would make a fun project for yourself or others on your gift list this holiday. I’m not sure if I’d make one with The Grinch on it, but you’re free to do whatever you wish. 😉

With cold weather closing in on us quickly, we’re all thinking about staying warm and maintaining some style. Our minds are also shifting to buying/making gifts for everyone on our holiday lists. So this tutorial is the perfect project to do for OURSELVES!
Skip To My Lou shares this great tutorial for making a Ruffled Infinity Scarf in their Holiday Craft Along.
Another great Christmas gift idea!
Lindsay over at The Cottage Mama shares this great tutorial for Embellished Hooded Towels. This would be a great project to help use up some fabric scraps.
My girls have always used hooded towels and they both desperately need some new ones. Looks like I’m adding this to my to-do list!
