• Jenn writes, “I have been wanting to make my own grocery bags, but just knew that I wouldn’t get around to making enough for bringing home actual groceries. My compromise was to use a cheap reusable bag and make it cute.” Find Jenn’s “Cutifying Re-usable Grocery Bags” Tutorial on her ferferfly blog.
  • Janine from Betty Ninja writes, “My blogging friend at Fat Orange Cat recently posted a super easy, and helpful tutorial on how to sew a double sided strap for purses… I know for me that is always the thing I get stuck on while sewing a bag.” Thanks for the tip, Janine!

  • Michelle wrote about a great tip to help with your sewing organization and productivity. She was inspired by our interview with Denyse Schmidt and her book to make a flannel layout board for her sewing area. She writes, “I loved her idea of hanging flannel on the wall to lay out the quilt. That idea got my mind rolling and I made a flannel board of sorts out of plywood and love it. I posted about it on my blog Sew Much More… You can actually see her book in the pictures opened up to the instructions for binding. I’m so thankful for this tip from Denyse that got me scheming and planning. That board has been wonderful to work with!” What a great idea!
  • Jennifer of Scrapdash sent in her CD Coasters Tutorial and writes, “I’m not sure if anyone else has done this before–or better–but putzing around in my sewing room, I came up with this way of creating coasters with those junk mail CDs that come through the mail. It takes a little bit of hand sewing, but the stitches can be uneven and large (some of them need to be) because they will be hidden underneath. The star of the show is the fabric chosen.”
