Are you ready for Handmade Holidays?

It’s started. You know what we’re talking about: Christmas trees in department stores, not-so-subtle ads everywhere, a deluge of catalogs and the nagging feeling that you should get to work and at least think about holiday gifts. We have the answer for holiday gift-giving this year, or at least the inspiration and a few (100+) tools to help you get it done. We’re thrilled to present, starting tomorrow, our Sew,Mama,Sew! Handmade Holidays: 30 Days of Gifts to Sew!…

Free Fabric Friday

True confessions time.  I am a complete sucker for ’30s and ’40s reproduction fabrics.  I always have to control my urge to buy mountains of bolts of wee little duck and shepherd girl prints because a) not everyone (most sane people) love them as much as I do; b) they are usually such small prints that they don’t translate well online and c) they are usually such small prints that they don’t make much of an impact on bags, clothing, etc.  Imagine my glee when Marcus Brothers came out with Aunt Grace Ties One On–problems b and c solved!  These...

Introduction ~ Deborah

From Beth: Oops! Here’s Deborah’s introduction. Be sure to check out her Little Hooded Jacket pattern review from Kids’ Clothes Month. From Deborah: My name is Deborah and adore anything arty. My first ‘real’ hobby was and still is scrapbooking which has led onto meeting some fabulous people and branching out to try new things. I came across a blog whilst hopping round the internet, Pink Lemonade Boutique. It really inspired me to get out the sewing machine and give bags a go… A girl can never have too many bags or shoes! Following the link on Dena’s blog I came to Sew, Mama, Sew and the rest is history. I’m now a full fledged sewing...
