  3. Linda says:

    What fun fabric. I have 13 grandkids that get handmade Christmas gifts. This year I have an assembly line going for totes, wallets, bags, clutches, cosmetic bags, and coin purses for all the girls. Lucky thing I only have 8 girls! This fabric would not only be fun but gorgeous too.

  4. Kat says:

    Wow pretty fabrics. At the moment I am working on a 50s rock and roll skirt for my 21st birthday party which is in two weeks and after I finish that I am planning on making my grandma an apron for christmas.

  5. christy says:

    i love to sew!

  6. Sophie says:

    I’m trying to make a baby sling, bought the fabric but a little scared to try and make it.

  7. summerdae says:

    My hubby, lil girl, and I just up-rooted and moved 1,000mi away. Mostly to be closer to family and start our life fresh and new. In the process we only moved what could fit in this 8′x7′x6′ cube. I’m going to be slowly working on redecorating everything. Just started small and finished recovering my sewing box/ottoman. I really want to try a quilt, my daughter needs new bedding!

  8. Debbie L says:

    I’m working on some new potholders and towels for my kitchen. I have been using Christmas ones… for the entire last year!

  9. Becky says:

    Working on handquilting and beading a fun preprinted panel for a wall hanging… and new tiles for my ceramics class… and a sweet little wall hanging from scraps from the one before – all fall colors and trying to modern abstract! it’s a challenge cuz i want to embellish but i’m pretty new to actually doing it.

    thanks! B.

  10. Julie says:

    I’m working on a bubble skirt for my daughter right now and it’s going to be adorable! I’m also recovering my living room pillows (woohoo! it’s been 4 yrs!) and with the old covers, I think I’d either like to make crib bumpers or a quilt…we’ll see…

  11. Dianne says:

    I’ve just finished making a tote bag, a potholder, a cloth basket, have cut pieces for an hourglass quilt, am making a teepee for my toddler out of large patchwork cowboy fabrics, and I’m gearing up for many holiday crafts!

  12. tammy says:

    Right now I am working on a quilt using fabrics from Anna Maria Horner’s Drawing Room line. I just got done refurbishing (i.e. cleaning off and spray painting white) an old chandelier. And, if by chance I am a lucky winner for this giveaway, I’ll be making a baby quilt for some friends who are expecting a new little one in November!

  13. Barb says:

    Found your site and am wandering around- loving every bit! I’m working on a scrap quilt- sandwiching it to finish it as I’m forcing myself to finish every UFO before starting a new project. (Why did I make this my goal- it’s not fun!) I have 1 more UFO to sandwich and quilt and then on to the many projects I just can’t wait to start! I have a quilt, bedskirt, 3 pairs of curtains and valances and pillowcases and shams fo rmy bedroom. After 4 years of quilting it’s finally my turn to get a quilt! Then there’s the 4 throws I need to do for family members and a baby quilt for a shower……… the to-do list goes on forever!

  14. Estee says:

    Hi, I’ve just finished making a few birthday fabric buntings to decorate the house with as its birthday time in a couple of weeks time… so excited!! My next project is a cloth doll with a wardrobe… its a first time project so I hope it works!

  15. Andrea T. :) says:

    I have a lot of “Christmas gifts” in the plans, but hope to take time to make myself a few pillows for our couch and maybe some basket liners. Thanks for all your creative inspiration!!

  16. stephanie says:

    I am a beginning sewer. Patchwork kitchen towels are what i plan to start on and then a felt roll for pencils or makeup brushes.

  17. Roz says:

    I’m working on tote bags for Christmas

  18. jen says:

    I am planning on making a bedside organizer with the pattern shown a few articles up.

  19. Amber Graham says:

    Starting a Denyse Schmidt quilt for my son’s room! Can’t wait!

  20. Lillyanka says:

    I’ve wanted to learn how to sew since I was little. My mom has some knowledge on sewing, but she never taught me. So now, at 24, I’m searching online for tutorials and patterns and learning all by myself. I really want to make myself a project bag and a needle case for my knitting. Hopefully I’ll learn enough to start making more “advanced” stuff soon! :)

  21. Beth says:

    Okay, I didn’t follow the directions. I am working on a maternity shirt with pleats in the front and one of those pleated necks that you guys had during Sewing Month. Does PLANNING and THINKING count as WORKING ON?

  22. Caitlyn says:

    Lovely! I’m working on a stacked coins quilt with Heather Ross’s Mendocino in her blue, orange, and brown tones.

  23. Elizabeth says:

    Love all the great greens in the new fabrics. Perfect for my new green dinning room.
    I’m working on the blanket with rock pockets I found here then it’s time to try curtains.

  24. Karen H says:

    I need to make curtains for the 3 windows in our breakfast nook!

  25. alicia says:

    Just love them ALL!! The Modern Flora would go PERFECT with my shag-esc hand embroidered dish towel project!

  26. Clara E says:

    I am brainstorming some wall art a la tutes shown here. But I’m also working on some throw pillows.

  27. Karen says:

    Fun! I just finished a cat bed, and am now planning a curtains project for our living room.

  28. Christine says:

    I am making a fall throw for my sofa. It will have maple and oak leaves appliqued on it. I cannot wait to get sewing on it.

  29. Dorte says:

    I am backing my patchwork quilt with minkeefleece!!! It is and experiment…. why shall only the babyblanket be soooo soft, why not the one for me? Hope, I will like it, when it gets done…. need to make some colorful biastape this evening and get going!

  30. Christine says:

    I’m working on some halloween pillows right now. Hopefully they’ll actually be made before Halloween- I’ve had the fabric for 2 years now :) Somehow the halloween projects always get bumped, and then it’s time to start Christmas gifts!

  31. Kelly says:

    A dress for my daughter.

  32. Julie says:

    I am in the costume making phase right now, but hoping soon to start some coasters and other small things for Christmas.

  33. Janice says:

    I’m wanting to make some sort of bed covers for all three kids rooms. I’m trying to decide whether I want quilts or comforts at this point. I would love it if anyone could point me to a tutorial for something quick and easy for girls or boys!

  34. elizabeth says:

    i have just finished a hand-quilted baby quilt for a friend of mine –
    see it at bitsofsunshine.typepad.com
    i will now be starting two other baby quilts for my new twin nephews.
    in a day or two i will have pictures of them in progress up on my site as well.

  35. Heidi Ortega says:

    I just moved and am working on all the curtians in the house and since we just got a new couch – i will be soon making throw pillows! I hope i have time for the christmas sewing i want to do… never ending projects!

  36. elaine t says:

    I’m still new to sewing and am currently trying to sew a nice-looking quilt for the house. I’ll be cutting out fabrics tonight to try and sew a small quilt – wish me luck! :)

  37. chantal says:

    I am working on some quilts for my kids and niece and nephews. After that I am doing one for the master bedroom.

  38. marg says:

    just finished an Amy Butler lap top case and with the remains I did a draw string bag. First sewing projects in oh probably 25yrs just back to sewing and really enjoying it.

  39. Renae says:

    Oh the Amy Butler and Joel Dewberry are fabulous but I’m a huge fan of Modern Flora. I’m currently reupholstering my dresser chair with it! I’m hoping to have enough left over to whip up a bag or cover a notebook.

  40. Yvonne says:

    I’m still working on re-upholstering my sofas – the previous cushions had NO trim and I am attempting to make box cushions with contrasting trip – one more cushion to go and 2 to re-do *sigh*
    I also am working on recycling clothing we were going to donate to charity, and am instead cutting it down to size to make clothes for my 9-month old since I have very few clothes for him after he grows out of the clothes he is currently in. I figured that if I was going to give the clothes away to charity anyway, then it is essentially free fabric.
    AND, I am making him 2 fleece sweat-suit type sets – hoodies & pants from each piece of fleece I have.

  41. Jan Watson says:

    I am working on some Christmas ornament blocks for a swap. I am way behind, since they have to be mailed on October 1. I am hoping to get a Christmas quilt made from what I receive back (plus a few more) for one of my children.

  42. Yetta says:

    I’ve been working on a jacket for my little girl and a costume for my little boy. It’d be great to see some tuts in October for Halloween costume ideas!

    As usual, thanks for all the inspirations.

  43. Amy Mc says:

    Wow – I love the post on using fabric for wall art! There are some georgeous large-print fabrics out there that I would love to use to add some color to my walls without breaking the bank. I can’t wait to get started.

  44. karin says:

    Love the fabrics! I have one more curtain to do for my boys’ room and then the bathroom wants some fabric boxes. But the living room really wants some fun fabric panels. I just want to do it all! Thanks for an inspiring site.

  45. Melisa says:

    I’m working on re-covering some old throw pillows. Also considering making a new duvet cover. I love the new Amy Butler fabrics!

  46. lorena says:

    I want to start in on a “wall organizer” idea I found here: http://www.livingcreatively.com.au/CreateNow.aspx?PageID=21&CategoryID=40

    Now I just need to find some fun fabric!

    Thanks for the opportunity. :)

  47. Kathy says:

    Working on a new bed skirt for E’s toddler bed.

    Thanks for all the great ideas and inspiration!

  48. cici says:

    i’m looking for a fabric to recover my dining room chairs. i need to piece together a throw quilt to match the pillows i just made. and i just bought a few towels to whip up some bathroom rugs. phew. i’m tired just typing it.

  49. dianne says:

    I am going to attempt to jazz up the plain white curtains in our daughter’s room with some great fabric from my stash.

  50. dianne says:

    I just looked at our outdoor cushions and pillows – I think this was a tough summer for them, so I will start to sew new ones now and surprise myself in the spring.

  51. Jennifer Anderson says:

    I am currently working on a curtain to hang between my laundry room and the bathroom. The ceiling is too low in the basement to put a door, so I want to make a curtain there for privacy. I am also currently working on a lap quilt to use as a throw in my living room. Please enter me in the contest for the great fabric!

  52. Kim says:

    Those fabrics are lovely! I’m getting my house ready for fall — pillows, curtains, etc… :)K

  53. Carrie says:

    I am redoing my bedroom by recovering pillows, I just finished a fabric headboard, and I am in the process of making my fabric wall art. All in time for Fall with warm oragne and brown and a cool contrast of powder blue.
    Can’t waitt o clock all those sleeping hours in such a cozy room.

  54. Joy says:

    I’m now making some coasters with an Amy Butler charm pack!
    My friend has a new house and they’re a house warming gift for her.
    I’m also starting on some coasters with a hunk of an olive green floral upholstery linen-
    the piece you’d find in a fabric sample book. It came with several squares of the same
    pattern in different colors. Best of all it was 50 cents at a yard sale! This year I’m working on
    making most of our Christmas gifts so the charm pack would be a wonderful start for me!

  55. Ginny says:

    I’m almost done with a white tutu for my daughter for an angel costume. Just have to put some more tulle to make it a bit more poofy & then I’m sewing on some pretty white boa to the waste.

  56. Linda says:

    I’m currently working on a quilted throw for my bedroom, but I also want to undertake sewing a slipcover for my favorite overstuffed chair in the living room.

  57. Beth says:

    Trying to finish a “Fall” quilt before Winter comes!

  58. Christine Bolin says:

    I’m working on Christmas stuff. Some tissue holders and some pin cushions. Those fabrics and wonderful!

  59. amy says:

    I have been making lots of matroyshka dolls and I want to start making some christmas decorations. I definitley want to make a table runner and some new stockings for us.

  60. Kate says:

    I am currently searching for a set of chairs to recover for the kitchen table. I think it is a great way to bring some color into the room without being overwhelming. Wish me luck in my search!

  61. Chelsey says:

    My 4 year old and I are sewing a tiny pillow for her stuffed dog. We’re practically finished and just need to stuff it and sew up the opening. Next I’d like to make a tiered skirt for her!

  62. I’m planning on using fabric to create art for my children’s bathrooms when we move. I’m going to use Mendocino fabric.

    I’m also going to use pop garden fabrics for my daughter’s room. I’m going to make curtains and a few other things.

  63. Emilee says:

    Ooh. . . pretty. I love the new fabric.

  64. Erin S. says:

    Pillows for the family room sofas and a simple crib quilt for my son. Love the Ginseng fabric!

  65. Treemama says:

    Nice, I am working on autumn tablecloths and doll quilts/pillowcases, oh yeah and beanbags.

  66. jacquie says:

    i’ve been on a pillow making binge…my favorites are the ones i made from a damaged vintage quilt. i’m still working on the cushions for the sailboat cabin….it’s going to be awhile!

  67. Elaine B. says:

    I just finished a muumuu from vintage floral double knit for my daughter.
    We found the pattern at a yard sale in Nashville, and I had my doubts . . .
    but belted it looks very cool on her.

  68. BeckyR says:

    Those are absolutely gorgeous! I want them all!
    I have a purse that I need to get finished for a gift.

  69. ellen says:

    I am finishing a baby quilt for my niece and look forward to starting a new project .

  70. Rachel says:

    That wall art is definitly something I’m adding to my list. I’m also keeping an eye out for a chair to recover.

  71. Valerie says:

    I am working on couch pillows and a window shade! Love the tutorials this month!

  72. Miss S says:

    Beautiful. I just finished curtains in 70th colours for my temporary apartment. Nothing fancy, but when I’m moving on the fabric will be beautiful for a new skirt… I can’t wait already!

  73. Robin says:

    We just movrd, so I have several home projects going right now, mostly in the form of window treatments. I am also trying my hand at recovering an old chair I picked up.

  74. amylou says:

    Really you want to know what I am working on? PHEW! 2 lotte aprons (one for me one for my pal), a super wonky quilt, a dress for our 4 year old (size 6) and to finally crack the code on a wrap dress pattern with a crazy high collar…and now I won’t bore you with the other craftmares in my life i.e. knit, crochet etc. xo and thanks for the site!

  75. Carla says:

    Very lovely fabric. I’ve been working on several handbags and totes. Also doing 3 dolls for swaps and 1 doll for a challenge. Repaired a dress for my daughter.

  76. Becca says:

    I’m not sure if this counts as a “home” project, but I just decided to make a few of those hot/cold packs (there was one featured in last year’s handmade holidays/tutorial collection). I have lost my 3rd ice pack and I think I might not lose them if they’re beautiful!

  77. Toni says:

    Gorgeous fabrics (love Amy Butler). Am planning a quilt as a Christmas present for my 3 year old.

  78. Heather V says:

    OMG I am in love with Daisy Chain!!!

  79. Jo Watts says:

    I’m currently working on a remote “organizer” for my daughter. She’s having surgery in a couple of weeks, and will be in bed the first few days, recovering. She wanted something to hang next to her bed, that would hold all of her remotes, plus other little things she might need. I’m making it in a style similar to a shoe organizer.

  80. jackie bateman says:

    curtains and a wall hanging! love the new fabrics.

  81. Toby says:

    About to start work on curtians. Half of my family suffers from severe migraines and I need to get some up for them to be able to have a completely dark room. And to add a little flare for me. :)

  82. Tricia says:

    Oh I love them!! I am working on 2 things:
    1. grandmothers quilts with squares from all the grandchildren (as long as everyone mails theirs back in time)
    2. Aprons for all my sisters-in-law, sister and mother for Christmas, and Jr aprons for my nieces.
    I just hope they are done for Christmas 2009!

  83. Jen says:

    I just starting quilting, and we need a new couch cuddle up quilt!

  84. carrie says:

    I’m making a lap quilt as a wedding gift for friend #1 and placemats/tablerunner/napkins for friend #2. More fabric would suuuuuure be handy.

  85. Mary says:

    Working on several….afterall it’s almost Christmas. There’s a chickenscratch pillowcase, 2 bedside caddies,covered artist sketchpad and roll up, a simple backack,christmas ornaments and an advent calendar…. That charm pack could get me started on next Christmas…Afterall, January is coming.

  86. Ritsumei says:

    Oh… home sewing, like, for the house??? I don’t do tons of that. But I could really use to make some sort of curtains for the kitchen and I’d love to get something pretty hanging in my bedroom. Andy and I have agreed on something Asian-flavored, but we’re still negotiating past that.

  87. Ritsumei says:

    I’ve got to figure out when I’m going to do my bride’s maid dress for my sister’s wedding. It’s no small project: before I do the dress I need to do the practice dress, because before I do the practice dress I need to size up the pattern 2 sizes and make a full bust adjustment. This is no small project. But the alternative is to go shopping…. ugh. It wouldn’t be so bad, but I’ve got a 2 year old, and I just can’t think that hard when he’s home. So I need to “farm him out” sometime. Hopefully sometime this week.

  88. Kate says:

    I’m planning out some curtains for the youth cafe at church. I have to figure out something functional that will last and appealing to any age that uses that room… It should be fun!

  89. throw pillows for the couch, in a lovely amy butler home decor fabric!

  90. Deb says:

    Yes, the fabric is gorgeous! I’m working on a sampler quilt…one block a month for a year at our local quilt shop. The purple/pink/green/white colorway is beautiful. I’m also working on an art wall quilt with coffee cups and the word Coffee on it from he McKenna Ryan collection. It’s for a friend, and since I’m not a coffee drinker I won’t be tempted to keep it for myself! :)

  91. Vera says:

    I came across your website this summer and was inspired to start sewing because of all the beautiful fabrics you had. I had sewn a couple things as a kid but nothing since. I got myself a sewing machine and am planning on starting off with aprons for my little nieces and some throw pillows and tote bags. I figure I need to start with something fairly simple. :) Thanks for the opportunity and inspiration.

  92. Kimberly North says:

    I am currently working on an apron for my 7 year old for christmas, and next up is a clothes pin bag for my Grandma for Christmas.

  93. Dawn says:

    I am currently working on curtains to cover an unattractive space but my huge ambition is to reupholster my living room furniture! I’m a little scared to take on that one right now, though!

  94. anna says:

    I am working on a baby quilt for a friend’s nephew. It is going to be all in flannels with a fleece backing. I am so looking forward to start which hopefully will be in a few days.

  95. Ann says:

    I should be working on curtains/valance for the bedroom & craft room, but what I’m really working on is a new, fun tote. I’ve been perusing fabrics & stumbled upon this site, & let me tell you, I’m happy I did! Lovely things here for me to buy! :)

  96. Limor H says:

    Working on some curtains and rag dolls. Next project is something for our bay window.

  97. Ruth says:

    Lots of projects in the planning, too many in the unfinished stage….a fall wardrobe for my 3 year old, a new purse for me, Christmas gifts, a reversible table runner, skirts for my 12 year old….oh the list goes on and on….

  98. Del says:

    I’m currently working on new couch cushions and making a slipcover for my office chair.

  99. Norma says:

    Trying to work up the nerve to make curtains for our living room. Two big windows so I’m a little scared to start. I have the material, the lining, the hardware now I just need the nerve. :)

  100. kirsten says:

    I want to make Winter curtains out of Joel Dewberry’s Orchid Chocolate for my newly getting slowly renovated Family room. I just found a rug that is the perfect match.

  101. Terri says:

    I love them all:)
    We just bought our first house and I have a list of things to do…but first I’m going to make my little boy new bedding, drapes, chair cover and hanging fabric organizer for his room!

  102. anna w says:

    oh, dear. thought I checked Friday for FFF, but maybe that was Thursday…my week has been off a bit. Anyway, I expect it’s too late (it’s not FFS, after all), but I’ll give it a try anyhow, just for kicks :u) I’m working on drapes. Lined drapes. I did some earlier this year for one of the windows in the living room, but have two more to go still! I did a tutorial on my blog (http://anna.watchtan.com/article/how-to-make-lined-curtains) – mostly so I wouldn’t forget how I did it, but hopefully it’s helpful to someone else too!
    And I love the fabric, too! You guys do such a great job of picking awesome fabrics for your store!

  103. Carla says:

    I’m working on back pillows for my new thrifted love seat and some throw pillows to pull it together with my existing sofa.

  104. Lindsay says:

    I am recovering some previously peed upon dining room chairs with some Midwest Modern….!!!A big step up for chairs that came from a garage sale andwere then punished by my two year old.

  105. Maggie says:

    I love that Joel Dewberry fabric. I am planning ot make some curtains for my kitchen as soon as I find the “perfect” fabric!

  106. Fairlight says:

    All three are beautiful! I’m working on a bed skirt, new pillows, and a slipcover for our master bed room, new couch pillows for the winter season, and a whole bunch of Christmas presents. Not home decorating sewing, but time is ticking away! :)

  107. Jennifer says:

    I’m currently framing some of my favorite fabrics and also planning slipcovers for the dining room chairs. Love this site!

  108. rachael says:

    dish towels and fabric boxes! I’m so in love with sewing right now!

  109. Alicia says:

    I forgot to say my sewing project!!! On my list is throw pillows, oven mitts, and a new quilt!

  110. Alicia says:

    I don’t know which is better the Ginseng or the Daisy Chain! Winning some fabric would be a real treat since I just got a new machine!!!!

  111. Frogdancer says:

    I just ordered from your shop. I’m amazed at how reasonable your prices are, and the postage was cheap as well. I’ve been told that fabric in Australia is expensive compared to the U.S, and now I believe it.
    I’ve decided to work on a ‘tumbling dice’ quilt. It has to be hand sewn. I should get my head examined…

  112. erin says:

    i’m making some fall napkins out of vintage fabric that i thrifted.

  113. valerie waters says:

    Beautiful fabric!! I am working on my first quilt and a few little baby blankets. I’m pretty new at the whole sewing thing so a little extra stash of fabric would be wonderful!!!

  114. earthchick says:

    As soon as I finish getting my study/studio organized (this weekend, I hope), I plan to *finally* finish two napping quilts for my twin sons. Then I’m going to start picking out fabric for curtains to finish off my newly organized studio!

  115. Jennifer says:

    I have a chair and a bench that need cushions and another chair that needs a new seat cover and new back.

  116. anna says:

    I just whipped up a set of drapes for my windows

  117. Colleen says:

    I’m making some tea towels with trim and some pillow covers – and of course thinking ahead about holiday projects!

  118. Joanna says:

    I hve a chair that seriously needs a new cushion. I’d like to make one from that great tutorial you had up a little while back. Now, I just need time!

  119. Karla says:

    Working on a new purse that I pieced together from a couple different patterns. Just finished new curtains for my living room!

    I’m 25 and recently started sewing. I’d love to win the giveaway because I don’t have very many fabrics!

  120. Kristen L says:

    I am finishing up a couple things: a pillowcase, and a Halloween wall hanging. And planning on a few things: a dress, a quilt for my bedroom, curtains for my son’s room, plastic sack holder, and on and on and on! Looks like I’m adding fabric wall decor to my list now, too!

  121. kelly jo says:

    Ooh, I love the Daisy Chain collection, although, I think I’ve loved everything Amy Butler has done! I’m currently working on a mini quilt / table runner and I’m planning matching curtains for my dining room!

  122. Beth says:

    Oh Daisy Chain! You make me crazy! So great!

  123. Concha says:

    Wow… Amy Butler is a machine… she never stops!…

    At the moment I’m working on my very first quilt: it’s a doll quilt and I’m so excited!

  124. Ane says:

    Wow how does Amy Butler make so many gorgeous fabrics? Right now I am planning to make a floor mat for the bathroom to put ouside the shower.

  125. Stacy says:

    I just purchased some fabric to make curtains for my kitchen and bedroom. I also plan on making some hand towels for my bathroom.

  126. Tammi S. says:

    very Nice!! I’m working on a couple of projects because 2 of my bff’s are pregnant. Baby accessories and also a quilt for my family using Anna Maria Horner’s fabric and pattern. I can see many useful ideas using those beautiful fabrics!!

  127. Carrie S says:

    is it too late to comment? I have several thousand things started at the moment-a crib skirt, new couch pillows, some fabric boxes to attempt organizing, an apron…

  128. Liz J says:

    Curtains for my bedroom and hopefully some pillows for my couch.

  129. Eunice says:

    Slipcovering the ottoman AND making custom curtains for the veeerrrrryyy tall ceilinged stairway window

  130. adrienne says:

    Love, love, love Modern Flora! =]

  131. upstatelisa says:

    oooo! they are all great collections of fabric! Love the Flora esp!

  132. Angela says:

    Those are SO pretty! I love them!

    I just put the finishing touches on a couple of wool felt crowns for my daughter and her friend (we’re going to see “Cinderella, the Musical” today!) using a tutorial on Juicy Bits. Next up…a baby quilt for my cousin’s first!

    I am planning bedspreads and curtains. Need to get one of those bedspreads started soon, because the one on my bed is driving me nuts. Thanks for the inspiration and tutorials.

  134. Betsy says:

    I keep saying I’m going to make some wall art… but haven’t really gotten started. Working on a knittng needle case for a charity auction though.

    Yay for giveaways!

  135. Carol says:

    I am currently working on 2 aprons for Christmas presents and football shaped placemats for the college football season. Love that Amy Butler fabric!

  136. Heather says:

    yummy vintage feel to those squares. just working on some chenille backed burp clothes for my friends with babies. happy weekend.

  137. Kerri says:

    I want to make little things in Denyse Schmidt’s not-quite-straight pieced method. Coasters, placemats, table runners, pillowcases. She’s so awesome!

  138. Daphne says:

    I keep wondering what it is that makes me want to buy fabric online everytime I have a look in your shop…while I just came home from a huge fabricmarket and bought only 1 mtr of (cool) christmas fabric… It is HARD to get any beautiful prints here in the Netherlands :-(

  139. Margaret Collins says:

    Today I’m making Amy Butler’s Laptop Pattern for my new Laptop! Boy I wish I had this fabric to play with today! Love & Peace….Maggie

  140. Chris S. says:

    I’m planning on making a cushion for a beautiful old wooden rocking chair in our living room. I love it, but would use it more if it was more comfortable. I’m planning on using County Fair posie print in dark brown.

  141. Well, I recently ordered some fabric to make curtains for my daughters room. But we are moving! So I’m looking at the city girl quilt pattern by Denyse Schmidt. I think that would be perfect! Daisy Chain or Ginseng would look great with the fabric I already have!

  142. Samantha says:

    My home sewing projects coming up are a new cover for my ironing board and some fabric liners for some wicker baskets I have. Love the new fabrics you’re getting in. Modern Flora is fabulous!

  143. Catherine says:

    I’ve just finished some red velvet curtains for my drawing room and I’m going to start making Christmas stockings soon!
    Catherine

  144. Breanna says:

    I am always fascinated by the beautiful fabric that you have in your shop, I just don’t know where to begin. I just purchased fabric for a halloween dress for my daughter but I won’t start on it until late Sunday. I to have a project that I am going to start and finish by tomorrow morning, I am making baby doll diapers for my daughters 4th birthday. I can’t wait to see the look on her face with she opens her new diaper bag.

  145. Cute! I am making a baby blanket for my friend who’s due in 2 months.
    I hope everything goes well! That fabric is gorgeous.

  146. Sandy says:

    I’m making a quilt for my son using a star wars sheet that I bought from Pottery Barn.

  147. Lisa says:

    I’m planning to make a fabric-covered bulletin board for my sewing room. It’s a disaster in there.

  148. allison says:

    patchwork pillows! lovely fabric!

  149. Sarah says:

    Hmm, what am I working on right now? My first set of café curtains for my kitchen window.
    As soon as my huge AC unit comes out of that window they’re going up :)

    PS – I LOVE that “Modern Flora” collection!

  150. Meilnda says:

    Such beautiful fabrics! I’ve made some pillow covers for my livingroom couch. And I’m currently working on a lap quilt for the back of my couch. Plus, I would so love to find the time, materials, and funds to reupholster my couch… then I’m sure I’d be redoing my living room; new curtains, pillow covers…. the works!

  151. brittany says:

    i am working on a gratitude wrap (www.soulemama.com)! it is a christmas present, and with a 6 month old in the house, i just might finish it right before it is time to wrap gifts for the holidays.

  152. Heather B says:

    Currently, I need to finish sewing up some apparel, but then I want to reupholster a chair (one of your tutorials) and then some holiday decorations!

  153. Ann-Margret says:

    I need to make a couple of table runners and new cushions this fall. Time to freshen up the house a little. :)

  154. julie Moyer says:

    what great fabrics . I especially like Amy Butler’s Daisy Chain.

  155. Kathy says:

    I have been looking for a nice shower curtain, without any luck I might add. I am thinking this may be my next project. I am also working on a crazy quilt block. Love those fabrics!

  156. alison says:

    I’m making cute little christmas coasters (from a moda charm pack) to have in store to give as pre-christmas gifts.

  157. Renee says:

    I am sewing some doll clothes for my daughter. Embroidering a doll, and getting ready to whip up some jumpers!
    I would love to win me some fabric!!!

  158. Kate says:

    Hello, what a lovely blog you have all created – thank you so much!
    I am making cushion covers for people in the family – great Christmas presents :)
    I am also making random soft toys that decorate shelves before going to other good homes (as all good softies do…) Thanks again, have a lovely day!

  159. Ann says:

    I am finally inspired to work on projects i’ve had for a while now, like a messenger bag, roman blinds for all of our bedrooms and kitchen valences. We need it.

  160. mojoandco says:

    Curtains, curtains and more curtains is what our home needs next. Once I can drag myself away from making clothes and toys that is!

  161. Anna says:

    I’m all into making pillows for our couch at the moment!

  162. Lindsay says:

    Where do I start??? I have recently completed the Grocery Bay tutorial I found via Sew Mama Sew, and have coverd 3 wooden crate boxes which I am using for my babies toy boxes. Next on my to do list is a couple of lampshade covers – just ordered my second batch of fabric to import from the states….can’t wait for the postman now!

  163. nurse jenny says:

    Pillows. I should make them. We need some. Someone (thanks Leslie!) was nice enough to give me some nice Lotta Jansdotter Fabric that would work well. But what I really want to make is a skirt for myself out of Naomi Ito fabric :)

  164. Jessica says:

    I love this fabric! I would like to make a quilt for my daughter’s new toddler bed.

  165. mary says:

    I am making aprons for a friend from some embroidery her mom made long ago. IT was so long ago that the gingham is only 36 inches wide. I am also making some fall pillows to change out on my couch.

  166. Sherry says:

    I’m working on shortening my long ikea curtains. (not a very skilled or involved project but with homeschooling 5 kids finding the time is the key!) I’m also looking for just the right fabric to make a tablecloth and napkins to fit my table when I have the leaf in it.

  167. Sarah says:

    Love them fabrics!!! I’m in the middle of designing and gathering fabrics for an advent calendar and hoping I can get it done by 1st of December!! I’m also making a superhero birthday cape for our 3 year old neighbor.

  168. Amy says:

    I’m working on some roman shades for my craft room. Or at least I should be working on that…

  169. jill says:

    I am planning to make a wall quilt to hang in the big blank space in my living room. I’m going to use Pop Garden and Bijoux fabric in the reds and yellows. The outside border will be those lovely red and cream peonies, and the feature squares on the inside will be from the yellow and cream flower bouquets. I’m super excited about it. I am also going to make up some of those potholders that were features here, and a tea cozy with reverse applique circles and little animals peeking out of the circles. It will be ridiculously cute, if all goes well.

  170. Christy says:

    I’m supposed to be working on a lap quilt for Christmas, but somehow I’ve gotten side tracked and am making super hero capes for my youngest two boys lol. I also have 3 grocery totes that I need to finish! I’ve only had them cut out for 3 weeks now… eek!!!

  171. erin says:

    I just finished making a monkey for my little monkey. Now, I’m not sure what I’ll do.

  172. Karen S. says:

    I am working on a cover for my sewing machine, which has finally emerged from under the bed permanently, now that I have room for it in our new, bigger home!

  173. Anjeanette says:

    Ooh I love them all!! I’m working on a quilt for our new bigger bed. I have some ideas from the tutorials you have posted lately. I would love to make curtains with those awesome cutout details to match my new quilt. So much to do…so little time;)

  174. brandy says:

    Great fabric! I’m planning a small and large version of Amy Butler’s gumdrop pillows. They will be great to have around as the holiday season starts to crowd more people into my house (and I won’t have to worry too much about seating, because these are cute enough to have around all year).

  175. Michelle says:

    I really want to make a cape for my son, he’s 3 and superheros are in now.

  176. Jes says:

    Love the new fabrics! I am getting ready to work on some window treatments for our master bedroom. We are redecorating!

  177. Nichole says:

    I am working on new kitchen curtains!

  178. Amy says:

    I’ll soon be moving my sewing stuff into a permanent spot, and high on my list after that will be making a cover for my serger, which will be sitting out on a table.

    I also have plans to use your tutorial to make a bulletin board, which hubby has been nagging me to do for a while.

  179. Laura says:

    Yay! Nothing more exciting than beautiful fabric! I have recently re-upholstered 2 wing back chairs, made new curtains for my family room, and pillows for my couch. I would love some fun fabric for curtains in my kitchen and some new spice to my couch pillows!! I love fun and exciting fabrics!

  180. Jen says:

    I am working on my first completely-finished-by-me quilt (didn’t send it out to be quilted) and some Amy Butler gumdrop pillows for the family room…
    BTW I am loving the Recess fabric! So cute!

  181. Georgia says:

    Oh my goodness gracious! I’ve never bought a charm pack–maybe I should start!

    I am in process of making a new curtain for the window in my back door. Right now the fabric is taped up, so I need to get crackin! I’m TOTALLY going to IKEA to make some fabric art now.

  182. jessica says:

    I am working on making my youngest a Robin costume for Halloween. He’ll be Robin to go along with his big bro’s Batman costume we already have.

  183. Daljeet says:

    Hello! This is my first time posting and I’m strangely quite excited :) My sofa needs new covers and I bought b&w Ikea fabric in a splotchy design. I already have accent cushions and other decor items in bright colours, so I think the b&w will pull the look together…hopefully :P. Btw, this project has been on my to-do list since Aug ’07!

  184. shelia says:

    Love the pinks and greens!!! I’m busy working on birthday, baby and Christmas presents!!

  185. Anary says:

    I need some curtains for my dinning room and adjacent room…That is a lot of work :)
    These new fabric colors are so pretty…there is always something new “I need”.
    anary

  186. I will be working on my new kit for the Lilly Apron by Busy Bee Quilt Designs. It should be a real quick project that I should have plenty of time to complete this weekend.

  187. mikawendy says:

    I’m currently planning holiday gifts and also a bunch of donation quilts for a silent auction. I have boatloads of purple fabric left over from a charm quilt I made in high school and I’m TIRED of purple fabric. So I’m going to make a bunch of lap quilts for a charity silent auction this spring. My goal is to make the tops and binding entirely out of stash fabric and to use leftover batting. I may have to get some fabric for the backings, but I intend for them to be partially pieced, too, to maximize how much of this purple stash I can use.

  188. Jess says:

    I’m gonna so sewing for me! (Did I mention the prize is perfect as I’ve been wanting to BUY that one!) I am going to make myself a snuggle quilt so that I can give up my husbands and he doesnt have to freeze on the couch anymore!

  189. Laurel says:

    I’ve been planning on making a slipcover for our sofa for awhile…all I have to do is find the time!

  190. Robyn Piotrowski says:

    Oooh, just started a fun project with my boys today- “glue batik.” They will be throw pillows for their beds. After they paint them tomorrow we will find the perfect fabric to compliment the backs. Found the instructions for “glue batik” at “crafty crow” website. Love all the new fabrics you are showcasing!

  191. MelissaB says:

    I’m currently work on our main bathroom – it’s part way done, just not enough hours in the day.

  192. Kristy says:

    I’m planning a crazy log cabin pillow from “The Crafter’s Companion”. As well as lined bedroom curtains. I love the fabric!

  193. Rebecca S. says:

    Great fabrics! I’m working on a fun apron right now in a great apple print.

  194. Amy says:

    Curtains, curtains, and more curtains..nuff said!

  195. Carol Lewis says:

    I like the recess fabrics they remind me of 30′s fabrics. I’m currently working on a Halloween table runner using scrappy polka dot fabrics, a pumpkin print and Fall colors.

  196. amylouwho says:

    I am filling up my google reader with links to everyone who has done a tutorial on here. This is one of my favorite places for inspiration! Thanks for having such an awesome blog!

  197. Carishma says:

    I’m working on making an Amy Butler Lotus Cami and a tote bag. Love the new fabrics!

  198. Ramona says:

    I am making curtains for my pantry/laundry room. It is very retro with refrigerators, stoves, pots and pans on it. I can’t wait to finish it. I’m also making tote bags and a new apron.

  199. Andi says:

    My home dec projects keep getting interrupted by baby gifts too! I am, however, planning to make curtains for my kitchen and am working on some gum drop pillows for my living room. I also want to make fabric art for my walls (I can’t remember whether I got the link to that on the blog or forum…). Wish I had as much time as I do ideas!

  200. Mel Hallam says:

    I love those colors! I’m planning to make a toaster cover for my MIL from the tutorial here. Other than that, I’d like to make some pillows, and liven up my living areas.

  201. Cute fabric! I’ve been spending lots of quality time on this site lately–the portable cushions are next on my list!! :)

  202. Brynn says:

    I love those! Right now I am making Rice Heat bags for Christmas gifts. They are so fun and easy and I got the instructions from your website, so a great big thank you!

  203. I’m making myself a new fall jacket. I stretched out my last favorite with big nursing boobs. And now that I have post-nursing boobs, I need something that fits again. I haven’t been able to find anything I like, and then realized as I was digging through my fabric for something for my daughter’s birthday dress that I have the perfect fabric for my own jacket. So off I go! Hopefully I’ll finish it before the snow comes and it’s too cold to wear it anyways.

  204. Adrea Shef says:

    Great fabric! i’m planning on making a lot of pillows that are crazy-quilt style! :) Fun stuff :)

  205. Esther says:

    I’m working on making a seat cushion for my fiance!

  206. Amber says:

    Fun new fabrics! I’m starting on some curtains for my daughter’s closet…along with my other huge to-do-list!

  207. Debbie says:

    Lovely fabric! Right now, I am busy sewing potholders and hot pads to sell at our church craft fair.

  208. Carrie says:

    Well, I just finished an Amy Butler gumdrop pillow and I am going to make 2 more for my children’s play area in my studio. They are just too cute… my children, that is… oh, and the pillows too!

  209. Sarah Cosper says:

    I am going to recover some cushions!

  210. Debra says:

    I am making a few things right now. I am making halloween tops from the YCMT Faith pattern for my girls and my neices, a princess costume from Butterick, and I am planning out the apron I am making for my mom’s Christmas gift.
    I have soooooo many things I would love to make, I just don’t have enough time in the day!!!

  211. Monica says:

    I’m recovering a cushion for a bench of my sister’s for her Christmas gift! It’s been in her husband’s family – so I’m excited to bring some new life into this piece in her home! Thanks for all the wonderful ideas here!

  212. shabana says:

    iam learning to sew and greatly appeciate the tutorials…i worked on the kitchen patch work towel and greatly enjoyed it….and am all excited about the curtain tutorial……thanks a ton…

  213. Lynn Taylor says:

    Beautiful fabric! I am currently working on a baby quilt. I finished the top and just need to sandwich and quilt. Photos on my blog!

    Lynn

  214. Stephanie says:

    I really need to make curtains for my bedroom. I’m ashamed to admit how long we’ve had a sheet hanging up there.

  215. Cheryl says:

    I am working on 2 quilts for my daughters. I’ve picked out the fabrics and the patterns, now I need to get sewing!!!! Hmmm…those charm packs would also come in handy….thanks for the give away and chance to win.

  216. Jeannine says:

    It’s Halloween time and my 3 year old wants to be a dinosaur – so that is taking over my sewing time. Although a Christmas table runner is on the thinking board, too.

  217. Elizabeth says:

    My work in progress is curtains, I am hoping to have them all finished before the cold weather. I am also making a halloween costume for my daughter and maybe some crayon carriers if I have time on Sunday.

  218. Liz Brown says:

    When we were married a couple months ago, my husband and I were given a swank dining room set. The table has a glass top with mahogany wood and the chairs have plush ivory cushions. However ivory isn’t a good dining room table color since you eat on it and expect it to stay looking so savvy new. I’d like to recover the chair cushions, perhaps with that fabric. Then I need to make curtains to go in the kitchen, manroom, and guest bedroom. I’m also starting to work on some fabric wall decorations.

  219. Sarah Brown says:

    I have decided to sew all of my daughter’s new school clothes. She just started Kindergarten this year. Unfortunately I am not done yet.

  220. Alice says:

    I am working on place mats from Amy Karol’s “Bend-the-Rules Sewing”. There were supposed to be a wedding present, but my wobbly first attempt is better suited for a less formal occasion!

  221. Lisa says:

    Ohh, such fresh, beautiful fabrics….I just love Fridays! Right now I am working on a red, white and blue lap quilt that I started on August 8 (opening of the Olympics) in the Summer Fan pattern! It’s the ultimate Summer lap quilt — I love it! Thanks for the giveaway. -Lisa

  224. Solidia says:

    Love the bullentin board tutorial! I need one of those for my office/craft room.

  225. Lisa Marie says:

    my projects are endless, but at the moment i’m making placemats for my dad’s house, and one day i will begin binding my daughter’s quilt! love the fabric, maybe i’ll be lucky enough to win some! And though my lovely sister says I need to branch away from poop colors, I will always have a place in my heart for all things green and brown. :)

  226. Beth says:

    Love the new Amy Butler!

  227. Kim says:

    I need to make a wall pocket to hold all our remote controls. Gussets baby!

  228. Jill Tanner says:

    Beautiful fabrics! My next project is a chair cushion for an antique rocking chair we just refinished. It’s for our baby’s room (arriving in March) and I’ve got one more week until we find out what we’re having. Then it’s time to shop for fabric!

  229. Kelli says:

    Right now, I’m juggling a few projects…I’m almost finished with a Tinkerbell costume (for my 4 year old) before I start on a Captain Hook one (for my 2 yr old). In the meantime, I’m choosing a quilt pattern for my little girl’s bed, dyeing old shirts for some crocheted rag rugs, planning out a wall art project…and then I’ve got Christmas projects to start on! I love it!

  230. Chelsea says:

    I’m making a liner for the book basket in our living room with dividers. Can’t wait, it will be so much more functional when I’m done!

  231. Debbie says:

    My first grandgirl has just started walking: I’ll be making a cushion for the raised brick hearth to protect her little bones.

  232. Laurie Lozier says:

    I’m working on my first picnic blanket. ~Now comes the hard part,putting it all together!

  233. Karyn T says:

    I am working on a fabric dollhouse for my little girl. What a great giveaway.

  234. Stephne says:

    Not much else getting done except diapers as the baby has outgrown her mediums. On the side, I’m working on Christmas gifts, totes, potholders.

  235. Ayama says:

    Wow any of those beauties would look lovely on the slip cover I am planning to make for the sofa and arm chairs. One active toddler and regular craft playgroups have made the couch, DIRTY. I need covers that I can take off and wash.

  236. Mollye says:

    I hope this qualifies, we just bought a ten year old travel trailer and I’m working on re-covering all of the cushions.

  237. Debbsie says:

    I’m making an Amy Butler Birdie Sling bag and a lot of Luggage Tags for gifts for friends and family.

  242. Joanna says:

    My current project involves wool. I have finally caught the wool bug and have some freshly washed/felted pieces to work with. Yippee!

  243. Toni says:

    I have so many projects I want to do – I just need to find the time to do them. Then I’m going to get that leaf fabric. I LOVE IT!

  244. Hi! I’m working on a dress for myself. Currently, I am stymied because I cannot figure out how to ‘ease’ in the cap of the sleeve, so I’m researching about sleeve cap ease and am now redrawing the sleeve pattern to try out a tip I got from the internet. Live and learn, I guess.
    Also in the pile are a shirt I’m turning into a dress for my daughter, a tunic for my daughter, and a softie for a giveaway on my blog. I need some coffee.

  245. Nathalie Brault says:

    Hi, actually I’m working on making some hankies to put in my Etsy shop. You can check on my first one on my blog. I’m even stitching something on them. And to tell you the truth That fabric would be more then welcome.

  246. Libby says:

    I’m working on quilts and I’m hoping to start making rugs for my bathroom soon.

  250. I am making a cart cover for a friend’s child and a flannel smock dress for my grandaughter

  251. Caitlin says:

    My Grandma asked if I would be able to complete a quilt that a woman started making her over 50 years ago. She has all the squares, with hand appliqued flower motifs, and some of the squares are even sewn together by hand. She asked if I would sew the rest of them together (by machine) and then hand quilt it all. It is going to be a huge project, but I’m honored that she even asked me!

  252. Tanya H. says:

    Gorgeous fabrics! Something about florals that always makes me smile. I’ve got a project list a mile long right now thanks to a break I had to take while hubby makes me a new sewing room in the basement (lost my old one to the new baby on his way!), but we put the paint on last night so I’m good to go! Home projects I’m in the midst of include new curtains for the bathroom, a cover for the stool my pup uses to hop up into bed with us, and a cover for a cushion I want to put in the bottom of my son’s play tent in the family room. We need new chair cushions in the kitchen, too, but I’m waiting until the little guy is a little less messy before I do that. Then there’s Hallowe’en costumes to make, and at least two dozen Christmas gifts…hopefully all before baby arrives on Christmas day. Bliss!

  253. JayJay says:

    I’m working on a bag made of yo-yos and other recycled fabric as well as planing to make a knot bag. Such a selection of beautiful fabrics.

  254. Renee says:

    Ooooh I love Amy Butlers new stuff! Anything for free fabric! Hope I win!

  255. Allie says:

    Right now I’m sewing for everyone else’s home – I’m working on Christmas gifts! Everyone will get a quilt, and I’m also using up the scraps for hot pads, microwave hot pads, oven mitts, etc. Hopefully this year I won’t be sewing on Christmas eve, lol!

  256. Lesley says:

    Greetings. Our 14yo is currently making potholders. Her next project will be making pincushions for her friends for Christmas gifts. She’s thrilled that I’m telling you…looking over my shoulder, drooling over the lovely fabrics displayed on this page.

    Have a beautiful day :)

  257. Brooke says:

    I have the fabric (and now the instructions) to make a slip cover for chair. I’m also making stockings for Christmas. These fabrics make me want to do a few more projects.

  258. Karen Peterson says:

    I’m currently making Halloween quilts and reupholstering a chair for my office. I need some cute pillows with some of that new fabric !
    -Karen

  259. Julie says:

    I’m a knitter who has just started sewing. Today I bought fabric to make reversable Halloween/Thanksgiving runner for my dining room table. Looking forward to some kid-free time to sew it tomorrow.

  260. Jill says:

    My brain gets filled with ideas and I’m not very good at managing them so I have a couple of projects in the works… to name a few: a brickwork quilt for my daughter, a lap quilt for my living room, and clothes for my children’s dolls.

  261. Andrea says:

    I am working on covering the cushion on my computer desk chair.

  264. Katie says:

    My mother in law and I are planning on recovering her living room, chair, couch and sofa and making pillows to go with them. Whew! It’ll be a big job!

  265. Ann Rose says:

    I’m working on a reversible drawstring fabric bag (Michael Miller’s “Laundry Day” and “Sudz” prints) with gussets, though I’m still learning how to line up the seams accurately. After that’s done, I’d like to make some throw pillow covers using some favorite fat quarters and/or try to repair ripped sections of an heirloom quilt using reproduction vintage print charm squares.

    I have the fabric, ribbon trim, and rods needed to make curtains for my kitchen window. However, the season has changed and I’m no longer getting the sun in my eyes at dinnertime, so I’m feeling less urgency than I felt a few weeks ago.

  267. Jodie S. says:

    I am sewing up some candy corn for halloween decorations.

  274. lilcp says:

    I just finished a sewing apron. I got tired of losing my scissors. So now, I’m planning on making some fabric coasters and hot pads to match the kichen chairs i just re-upholstered. Not bad for a beginner I might add.

  275. Susan says:

    I am altering a silk dress that I bought for my son’s wedding in October; the hem has to be taken up but there is a pleat with lace that has to be removed and so on. It is a major headache waiting for me to begin.

  278. Christina says:

    Really really love Modern Flora!!

  279. Stephanie says:

    I plan to paint my front door red inside and out, so I also plan to make curtains for it. I temporarily tacked up two fabric panels, oh, three years or so ago.

  280. aimee says:

    I am absolutely in love with this new Amy Butler line. I have been searching for fabric to do curtains in our bedroom and this is perfect!

  281. Barbara says:

    I have a new grandbaby on the way and my pregnant daughter requested some leggings. They are perfect for fall under tunics or sundresses. I have a gray and dark green pair finished and am about to tackle the black!

  282. Linda says:

    We recently moved into a new house and are in the process of decorating it. I’m about to order fabric for a table runner, place mats, and napkins for my dining room and some pillows for the adjoining living room.

  283. Sarah says:

    I am hoping to make some quilted pillows for my couch – this fabric would be great!

  284. Nicole says:

    Hooboy, where to start? Tied for first place are the kitchen curtains and the dining room chairs, then I’d love to make a slipcover for an ugly chair in my living room. I also need to repair a duvet cover and make a coverlet for my bed. I’m not even touching on all the clothing I plan to make for Christmas presents, and the Halloween costumes for my kids….

    I need a drink.

  285. Staci says:

    I am trying to get a table runner project off the ground and I am really hoping to put that slipcover tutorial you posted to good use.

  286. Blayne says:

    Ooh I love that fabric! The next home decor project I am planning on doing is making pillow cases for my bedroom. I want them to make the clean and crisp Silver Sage of my walls and my bright white furniture! :)

  287. Alisa says:

    I am hoping to make curtains for my son’s bedroom. I also want to make a quilt for his bed, but that’s not really home dec., is it.

  288. Myra says:

    I am currently making curtains for my sewing room – thanks to the lovely inspiration and tutorials from you!

  289. Marcy says:

    In my sewing queue — 2 baby quilts pinned together that I need to quilt, potholders for my mom and sister, aprons for same mom and sister, pillows for the sofa, plus some kind of coverings for the tops of my end stands to match the pillows. I also am in the midst of making reusable grocery bags out of sheets and pincushions. Having to work really cuts in on my creative time……

  290. Jenny says:

    a quilt for my grandfather.

  291. alison says:

    I’ve been working off and on for few months on couch cushion covers. I didn’t do up a template and just jumped right in using my actual fabric so there’s been some frustration and I’ve put it away for now. But I do plan on getting them back out as our couch is really starting to look terrible. The corners are ripping and now the top of one of the cushions has started to rip. I’d better get a move on it before someone finds the rip and decides to stick their hand or a toy in there and make it bigger!

  292. sarah says:

    this weekend I’ll be sewing little aprons for my nieces!

  293. Sara C says:

    Yeah! I’ve been waiting for new Amy Bulter fabric!

  294. Jen says:

    My kitchen and family room are in desperate need of curtains. I can’t wait to start, but I have a long list to complete first, including Halloween costumes, some fall clothes, a few birthday gifts…. I’m sure another emergency project will pop in there too. I think about it every single time I walk into the room!!

  295. Kathy says:

    I’m working on reupholstering my dining room chairs, and making a table runner and placemats for Thanksgiving. After reading the wall art tutorial, I’m adding that to the list too! Thanks for all the great ideas.

  296. Jessie says:

    I am currently working on curtains for my front door, from Alexander Henry’s Birdseed fabric. And I just finished an apron from Lotta Jansdotter’s Simple Sewing book–it’s my new favorite thing in my kitchen!!!

  297. Mandi says:

    Adorable charm pack(Recess)! I love it!
    Currently, and as always, I have a handful of projects going. I’ve got a couple quilts started, I’ve been making diaper/wipes holders, wallets, and zipper pouches, and I’ve been planning on making couch pillow covers for awhile (and the hubby keeps asking if I’m REALLY going to do it *wink*

  309. Julie says:

    I have been working on curtains for my living room.

  310. Sharee says:

    I’m working on a Turning Twenty quilt and tying up some lose ends on a Cardigan, using a pattern out of the book, The SEW Everything Workshop. OH! I also need to finish a coffee apron I started quite some time ago. Also, I’ll be finishing the strap on a hobo bag using Joel Dewberry. The tutorial is from JCaroline Creative.

    I would love to get a charm pack of these fabrics… they’re gor-jus!!

  316. Sue H says:

    I am working on thank-you gifts for the several people we stayed with during a 17-day trip to Seattle and back (to Minnesota). I’m making a wall hanging, several table toppers, and a couple of bags.

  317. Jeanie says:

    I just started a Psalms quilt with a group of friends. We’ll be making one for charity and each of us will be making one for ourselves. I”ve made one block and am excited to get the next one started.
    I just love charm packs and , gee, you can never have too many!

    Jeanie

    I’m working on a fall tote bag for myself and I’d like to slipcover an old hope chest that sits in my entry. I’m still looking for the perfect fabric for that project.

  319. Julie says:

    I think take away cushions would be so cute with this farbic.

  320. Angela N says:

    You gals are awesome! I love your site and come by often! Keeping my fingers crossed.

  322. Molly says:

    I’ve been recovering my dining room chair pads and sewing lined valances for my windows. I used a sheet for the back. Our dog sleeps with my son and constantly tears up the fitted sheets so I have many, many unmatched flat sheets to use for sewing!

  323. Victoria says:

  326. mandy says:

    Oh my, I forgot. Besides all of my Christmas decorating projects I also want to start making curtains for every room in the house!

  327. mandy says:

    They are all beautiful, but I love the Modern Flora collection! Super cute! Happy Friday!

  328. Rochelle says:

    My daughters bedroom has the mellowy green as an accent color. They would be awesome accessorizing her room.

  329. giants fan says:

    I would love to make curtains, but I am new to sewing, and want a few more “miles” under my needle before I attempt that.

    thanks for the chance to win.

  330. maryann says:

    Right now I am making a wonder box!!! (it’s a box that keeps food cold or will keep your food hot and continue to cook it, these boxes are amazing)

  331. Elaine says:

    I need to start sewing cloth napkins so we can cut down on paper napkin use!

  332. tammie says:

    We just remodeled our upstairs, and added two windows. So I have two curtains to make! And of course, I’ll need coordinating pillows, and a new shower curtain, and maybe a duvet cover…

  333. Holly says:

    Right now I’m starting a crafting club at my college in Belton, TX that includes sewing, knitting, and crocheting! It’s called Craft Cru (we’re the Crusaders–Go Cru!), right now I’m funding all our projects, and well, I’m a poor college student so anything will help! Personally I’m working on making wallets out of scrapbook paper and laminant. Works pretty good actually!

  334. tooticky says:

    I’m working on a fall jacket for my 2 year old daughter…

    But now that I see the fabric art section, I have a new bee in my bonnet!

  335. Huse Yo Mama says:

    I’m working on many projects; yoga mat bags, toddler dresses, baby items, all for my new etsy store!

    Love the Kaleidoscope Dots fabric from Amy Butler. I used it recently to make a softie and it’s really good stuff.

  337. Cheryl says:

    Well let’s see, right now I’m working on curtains, not for my home, but for a teacher at the school my children go to. I’m also making several baby gifts since half the people I know seem to be pregnant!

  338. Shara says:

    Those are beautiful! It seems green may be the new color everyone will have. I love the pink/green combinations!

  339. lori says:

    i am in the middle of moving into my new sewing room (my hubby’s old office space). i am so excited! this fabric would be a great way to start sewing with my new machine in my new room. i would love to make a cute tote for work out of this fabric – it would definitely turn heads!

  340. Sarah says:

    Oh, that’s a nice set of fabric! I’m planning on making pillows to add some fun to my drab sofa.

    I’ve got plans for curtains, and a storage solution for all my remotes lined up.

  347. Maria Bong says:

    Love the Amy Butler fabrics! I just started a quilt for my daughters bedroom. Soon she will have new cutains to match!

  348. Meredith says:

    I love those new fabrics. I am always looking for new ones to make pillow covers so I can keep changing out my living room. And of course the projects in the In Stitches book, like the embellishments on the towels. I love adding little things around the home!

  349. Tammy says:

    Oh… Me, me, me….

  350. Jen says:

    I just bought some of the Daisy Chain fabric to make pillows. And I’m making a blanket out of scraps.

  351. Right now I am working on turning some of my scrap bin into a quilt. It is taking a bit longer then I had hoped–but it is going to be beautiful!

  352. Jill says:

    I just finished making curtains for my son’s room and next up is the Halloween costumes! This is my first time entering to win fabric, love the colors and patterns.

  353. Jennifer R says:

    Oh! Any of these would be soooo perfect for pillows, or a skirt or an apron, or wall art! I’ve got my fingers crossed!!

  354. min says:

    Well…I just bought some dirt cheap felt backed vinyl table cloths at Fred Meyer and I am hoping to sew them together in a way that they will cover my ping pong table in the garage for a Halloween party with kids. If it works, I want a Christmas one too…for garage crafting all winter long. The table cloths are under $4 each and so the whole thing (if it works) should only cost $12 plus the cost of thread. :)

  355. Kelly G. says:

    I have 3 quilts in the works… that is home sewing right?

  356. Anna Socrates says:

    What pretty fabrics. you’ve added. My home project: I am starting a nine-patch quilt cover called “The Future is So Bright.” This will use up a lot of fabric in the stash and upcycle a lovely cotton India print quilt that my cat has torn several holes in. (sweet kitty, bad claws). I’ll just reuse the batting and put a new cover on it. I am using lots of fun fabrics by Anna Maria Horner, and Sandi Henderson, and Heather Ross. It is going to be a lot of fun.
    Anna

  357. Andrea Methvin says:

    Oh that gorgeous fabric! Just love it. My plans are already on Christmas gifts. Going to be making table runners and placemats, and going to try the hot pad tutorial from last week. Gee-I better get sewing!

  358. Amy says:

    I am currently an apron making addict. My plans for my home, though, is to make my daughter some new curtains.

  359. Margie says:

    Wow I’m loving Joel Dewberry. I’m recovering 4 dining room chairs. I really hope they turn out nice! I’m also making totes for my sisters for groceries. We are all going green.

  360. Stephanie says:

    Cushions, cushions, and more cushions. It’s a cushion palace!

  361. Trish James says:

    Fabrics are just beautiful. So many to choose from!
    I’m working on a huge load of baby items for my friend who’s baby is due in about 5 weeks! So far I have done 6 bibs, 6 burp cloths, a cot blanket and sheets. Next in line are the curtains and baby clothes! Phew! Hope she’s not going to have it early!

  362. Erin says:

    How fun! I have a jelly roll waiting to be made into a pretty little girl’s quilt, and I’d love to get the Amy Butler nappy bag pattern for a fun new diaper bag. :) Both are in the planning stages… hopefully soon they will become active projects I’m working on!

  363. Melissa says:

    I’m in!

  364. dana says:

    Beautiful stuff.
    I need to make armrest covers for my couch. The couch is old and worn but it still has life left. The arms however, are worn thin. Ugh. It’s not a very fun project to start. I really just want to buy new couches :).
    Maybe with some new free fabric I can make something snazzy! The couches are olive green afterall.

  365. Sarah says:

    Wow! It’s all so lovely!!

    Are you going to be getting more of Anna Maria Horner’s new line?

  366. Katrin says:

    I am looking forward to do some tablerunners and placemats for upcoming birthdays and christmas.

  367. maryalice says:

    I am working on a quilt.

  368. BethieB says:

    Those charm packs are adorable!

    I just finished two fabric bulletin boards and have two more to go. They are a cheap and easy way to bring fabric in that matches the curtains and quilts I’m planning, so every bedroom gets one, lol. I have kitchen curtains on the drawing board (using the great tutorial from here, of course) and another quilt, this one for the living room wall, that’s almost done.

    On a non-sewing front, I’m using lino remnants to make red and white checked rugs for under my dining room table and in my kitchen. The tile floor in our rental is hideous so I’m trying to hide as much of it as I can. I also have a denim tablecloth in the works and wall art to finish before the 13th of October, so my sewing machines will be as tired as I am by the time this whole thing is done!

  369. katrina says:

    mini quilt for a giant stuffed dog. it was to be a quilt for the small child but she has decided that shaggy needs it more than she.

  370. kristine hanson says:

    I am working on a halloween quilt for me and my little family to enjoy

  371. Marissa Waldrop says:

    I’m going to be starting on some curtains for my son’s room soon. The new fabric is really cool.

  372. Lauren says:

    I LOVE that daisy chain pattern! I think I’ll use it to make a cute clutch!

  373. Jen says:

    I am working on some embellished patchwork kitchen towels with pot holders to match them. Maybe I’ll be LUCKY and win a charm pack!

    Jen :)

  374. Becky says:

    I’m working on sofa throw pillows and hope to recycle a pair of jeans into a skirt. Thanks for the opportunity to win. :-)

  375. Jenny H says:

    DD (6 years old) wants to be Word Girl for Halloween, so I’m making a yellow cape, and I need to put the star emblem on a red shirt.

  376. aimee says:

    I’m working on banners for my boys rooms!! Beautiful fabric – I love anything Amy Butler!! That Ginseng fabric is great too!!

  377. Dana V. says:

    I’m working on curtains for my living room. I’ve had the fabric for a year, so I think it’s about time, eh? Thanks for the chance to win!

  378. Christie says:

    I have almost 25 yards of fabric sitting on a roll at my house, just waiting to be made into 5 sets of curtains for my downstairs. What was I thinking?

  379. Alison says:

    I am making happy birthday banners and also holiday banners. I just finished a tote, curtains and pillows. I need to finish another set of curtains. ugh.

  380. Amy says:

    Pillows, napkins, tea towels and perhaps some wall art now that it seems so easy. I prefer sewing for the home and have been enjoying all these ideas.

  381. Amanda says:

    So many, so little time. The biggest priority is some type of “artwork” using applique and paints for my 4 month-olds room. I might also try the cloth bulletin board. Thanks for all the great tutorials! I’m trying to get psyched about re-upholstering a chair next.

  382. marcia says:

    I am currently working on some dish towels (got the idea here) and just finished some coasters. Next, I hope to whip up some fabric baxes to put on shelves above the hooks in our mud room for the kids to store cold weather hats, gloves, scarves, etc. in.

  383. Kelli says:

    Wow! I love the fabric! I am currently working on a baby quilt for our little one who is due any day now. I used the machine applique tutorial from a few months ago and it looks wonderful so far!

  384. Emily says:

    For the home, I’m working to modify a shower curtain to go from floor to ceiling – so extra length and some layers. I’m also updating my pillows and valences for the fall/winter.

  385. Doris says:

    I’m working on a scrappy quilt, it’s all been laid out and the squares are stacked up neatly waiting for me to find the time for an uninterrupted sewing session hopefully soon.
    Otherwise, it’s bags of various shapes and sizes.

  386. Carla says:

    I love this site. My friend just introduced me to you and your fabrics. i’ve already used some of your tutorials. I made a “headboard cover” for my sons crib and i made my own bias to pipe on the edges. Right now i am working on making some stuffed animal lambs out of scraps of fabric for my friend who just adopted twin babies.

  387. Sam says:

    I love all the fabrics! I’m itching to make another quilt, but my current project is my daughter’s Halloween costume. Thanks for the giveaway!

  388. Lynsay says:

    I just made some beanbags for a birthday gift using a different Sandy Klop charm pack. :)
    My home decor sewing projects include: dining room chair covers, couch/chair slipcovers, and a pillow for my sewing room chair. Not necessarily in that order.

  389. Anna-Marie says:

    Oops! I guess I should tell you what I’m working on. I’m sewing one of those cute bedside stuff holders that you had on your blog a few days ago. I needed just that thing. Maybe I can make some for Christmas too.

  390. Kick says:

    Beautiful fabric from Amy again! Wonderful! Currently I’m working on the fabric covered headboard but will be making one or two of the fabric art for my guest room. Fabulous ideas this month!

  391. Anna-Marie says:

    Ooooh fabric squares!! I make books and sometimes mixed media books using precut squares. Oh maybe I will win this week… Thanks for the awesome inspiration you girls offer. Your blog is fabulous!

  392. amy says:

    I’m hoping to make a few more potholders…once I overcome my binding issues!!

  393. Katy says:

    those are fabulous! Perfect for the pillows I am planning on making for Christmas presents

  394. EmmyLizzy says:

    I’ve got lots and lots of quilts planned – just need to find the time!

  395. Jennifer N says:

    I’m finishing my first table runner. I’ve also got a curtains shortage in my living room (5-feet long curtains on 6-feet long windows). And there are tutorials for fabric boxes, basket liners and more waiting for me to decide what’s next.

  396. Kathie says:

    I have way too many wip but today I started a jelly roll pattern out of the swell fabric I bought about 6 months ago!!!!

  397. ratty says:

    i am taking the seat fabric off of two antique chairs to hopefully make a working pattern to recover them :)

  398. Celeste says:

    Oooo–I am drooling over Amy Butler’s new prints! I’ve got some cloth napkins to sew up…but I have to finish up my daughter’s fall wardrobe first!

  399. Heidi says:

    I’m planning on making a cosy quilt and pillows for on the couch. The evenings are getting colder. i love to snuggle with a hot cup of tea!! Have a nice weekend.

    Heidi

  400. jan d says:

    Since my daughter is having a baby in six weeks, I am making baby blankets, burp cloths, etc. Love the fabric. Jan

  401. Jenn says:

    I just finished phase one of re-covering my daughter’s infant-to-toddler bouncy chair. Haven’t finished re-painting the legs yet, so no pictures yet, but it was a fun project. I essentially just made the pieces by tracing the original cover pieces onto my fabric. I used a chocolate brown faux micro-suede, which seemed to be a good weight for this project.

  402. Amanda P. says:

    I’m planning on using your headboard tutorial to create a headboard for the master bed.

  403. Lynette says:

    I’m making a dog coat for my greyhound. Colder weather is on the way! Then it’s onto a few fleece hats – so I’m warm out there too!

  404. the home dec project i’m working on now are amy butler’s fabric silhouettes – they’re beautiful!

  405. Sylvie says:

    Each week, your fabrics astonish me!
    I am working on 3 projects at the same time (plus the knitting) : 1 pijama pant for my 12 years old son, and one for me, and I’am collecting beautiful fabrics to make my first quilt for my 7 year olds daughter.
    Thanks a lot for your free friday, great idea!

  406. Sarah says:

    I am working on a new quilt for our bed. It started in about 1600 pieces, and I’m down to 1200 maybe? I keep getting distracted by the great tutorials I find here. :-)

  407. Megan says:

    I made matching curtains and pillow covers for my living room. I was going to close the pillows with buttons but my machine went down for the holes and kept pricking myself while sewing on the buttons so that’s my ongoing project to finish.

  408. Rebecca says:

    I just bought a (new to me) vintage pattern for a girl’s peasant top/dress. I am thinking of making a dress in a soft red corduroy. I might try linen or a cotton first to check out the pattern. This would be for my daughter for Christmas.

  409. Lindsey says:

    i’m going to use the tutorials on how to re-do my ugly fabric-covered desk chair :)

  410. Ruby says:

    I’m going to attempt a car organizer for my mom who does home care and needs some organization in her life. Do car accessories count as home dec? All of these fabrics are super cute! Thanks for the eye candy.

  411. Lindsay says:

    Love this fabric!!! I am waiting to start my first quilt and these fabrics would be fab!!

  412. Julie says:

    I just discovered your blog among a whole bunch of other great blogs about sewing. I haven’t sewed much in the last ten years, but am getting back into it. My next projects are washcloth puppets for my thirteen month old daughter, and also an A-line dress for her. I also need curtains to cover a kitchen cabinet. Thanks for the opportunity to win fabric. This is so exciting!

  413. Katie says:

    I’m working on curtains. We’ve lived in our apartment almost two years, and I’m just now getting around to it, for whatever reason.

  414. Joy says:

    I’m working on making a sort of ‘tree house’ tent for my oldest son’s top bunk…he’s the oldest of four, so we’re trying to make that space his own. And I’ve totally fallen in love with the patchwork pillows that Alicia (Posy Gets Cosy) has on her sofa these days…I want to try something similar, but in a different colorway that matches our living room.

    Oh man, I have to get my hands on that Amy Butler. *sigh*

  415. Amy W says:

    I am planning on working on some new winter/fall curtins

  417. Dawn says:

    A charm pack? Really?
    Cool!

    :o)
    Dawn @ (4:53am)

  418. Elise says:

    I love Amy Butler!! I am currently making the Birdie bag.

  419. Rose says:

    Slipcovers for the sofas – I’m going to reuse the ones I made for the old sofas years ago and kept until now. luckily the new sofas are smaller, so with a bit of luck it should be fine.
    That and some pretty cushions later.

  420. Janelle Harvey says:

    I’m hoping to start a lap quilt this fall. I have so many fabrics in my stash with fall colors, all laid out on my dining room floor as inspiration.

  421. Michelle Cowden says:

    This weekend I will be making sweet little fabric birds to be used as Christmas tree ornaments.

  422. Candee says:

    I am making children’s clothing and Amy Butler’s print would be divine!

  423. Leslie says:

    I am reupholstering 2 arm chairs. What a job. I am also getting ready to start another raggy blanket.

  424. Amy Myers says:

    Ooohhh, i love these fabrics!

    I am about to begin work on all things Christmas. a few aprons to make, reading pillows (from Montessori by Hand), etc.

    Hooray for the Holidays!
    Amy

  425. Whistlepea says:

    I’m working on a trench coat – mcCalls 5525.

  426. I’ve been sewing like a mad woman in preparation for baby.You can’t do much else when you’re 39 weeks pregnant! We bought a bassinet at a yard sale and after washing and setting it up, realized that we need sheets. I took one of our large flat sheets and have made four bassinet sheet shams out of it. Super easy and they fit perfectly!

  427. Jeni says:

    I have a fabric bulletin board going, pillows, and a few quilts. This weekend will hopefully yield a few completed projects!

  428. Catherine says:

    I’m working on a slip cover for my worn out, but oh-so-comfy living room chair right now!

  429. LisaW says:

    Great new fabrics! I’m excited about making decorative pillow cases for my sons’ room. If they turn out well, their cousins might get some for Christmas too!

  430. Amy says:

    I love all the florals! My next project is a sewing machine cover (using the tutorial posted here) so I’d love to win!

  431. Michelle Jadaa says:

    SUCH LOVELY FABRICS!Well i’m planning a few things …a bedside organiser that tucks under the mattress,a scrap catcher for my serger and an organiser for jewelry.

  432. MelissaS says:

    Thanks for all the tutorials. Anytime I have a “how do I do that” sewing question your blog is one of the first I visit to great ideas.

  433. Karie says:

    I am so inlove with Daisy Chains by Amy Butler! I can’t wait till I have enough extra money to get some!! they are so pretty!

  434. Paige says:

    I am working on my first lap quilt – love the Amy Butler fabric!

  435. anne says:

    Love your site and blog. Working on dresses for my daughters.

  436. Sue Cahill says:

    I’m working on a fall table runner for my dining room table. I need to make tale runners for lots of occasions but I never seem to get around to it. Finally, this project made it to the top of the list.

  437. quenna says:

    I’m working on reversible placemats using Echino fabrics.

    The modern floral looks wonderful :)

  438. Jenn says:

    Oh, love recess! Too sweet.

    I am attempting to convince myself to attempt to start recovering a chair. The conversation is becoming heated and I’m not sure which side will win. As of this moment the “Let’s wait till spring” side is pulling ahead; however, the “Let’s just get it done, it’ll look so cute” side seems to be on the cusp of a major push. We’ll just have to wait and see!

  439. Lorna says:

    Wow – these fabrics are gorgeous – I am very new to sewing but I am trying my hand at making some stuff for christmas, decorations, placemats & hopefully a table runner. Love the blog.

  440. Renee says:

    I’ve been eyeing up that Recess charm pack for a couple weeks now. Must have it…I have a quilt pattern all picked out.

  441. Mrs. Pear says:

    Wow – the new fabrics give me all kinds of ideas, and a charm pack would be great for the patchwork kitchen towels!

  442. Amy S. says:

    I am making my first ever quilt for my daughter. She is only one, but it is going to be for when she moves into a twin bed… I actually started this quilt with my grandmother when I was in grade school! I cant wait to get it all done!

  443. OOoOooooo. I love the new Amy Butler fabs!!! Thanks so much for the give away. This week, I’m working on baby crib bedding for my niece who will make her debut next week. I better get crackin’!

  444. Jocelyn says:

    Beautiful fresh colors! I’ve been visiting this site religiously since June/08 but never gathered the nerve to post anything – go figure :P
    I am a craftaholic (fabriholic, bowaholic, scrapaholic, cardaholic…you name it :) and constantly have some project or other on the go. This week: embroidered lunch tote and yoga sports bra/shorts set for my daughter’s friend’s birthday present.
    Thanks for all the great tutes!

  445. Matilda says:

    I’m planning to make a fabric notice-board/bulletin board, but I haven’t decided how I’ll make it yet – I’m a sewing n00b. :-) I just made curtains that are somewhat straight-edged…

  446. that charm pack would be perfect for the soft baby blocks i want to make. the home project i’m planning is a fabric basket for the stairs – you know, one that can fit on the stairs at the bottom so i can put things in it that need to be taken back upstairs? i’ve seen wicker ones, but i want one out of fabric. i haven’t found a pattern, so guess i’m gonna have to figure it out on my own!!

  447. dawn godek says:

    We just finished ds’s room (we closed up a sunroom), so my next project is curtains for his room. Trying to decide on fabric. I also want to try the tutorial for wall art for my living room or ds’s room.

  448. sara says:

    I love the “Water Garden” print from “Daisy Chain”!

  449. Gen says:

    Beautiful fabrics! Im currently working on a quilt for my daughter. The first one I made her was in jewl tone batiks but for this one I wanted it to be lighter & nature inspired.

  450. annec says:

    I’m making some tote bags and pillow shams. I really like the recess fabrics, winning some would be a great treat!

  451. Erica says:

    I love these fabrics especially the new Amy Butler! I am making fall clothing for my three year old daughter. I have been making a lot of twirly skirts.

  452. Erica says:

    I love these fabrics especially the new Amy Butler!

  453. Megan says:

    I want to recover my glider/ottoman using Autum’s tips and make new kitchen curtains.

  454. Terriaw says:

    Love the new fabrics! I am halfway through finishing a laptop bag, and then I want to make some patchwork potholders (from the Sew Mama Sew tutorial) and patchwork doorstops (from oh fransson).

  455. Carrie says:

    Love all the new fabrics coming out! I am currently working on Halloween pillows in between Halloween decorations, birthday presents and Christmas presents. So much to do and so little time!

  456. Jennifer says:

    I’m working on slipcovers…

  457. Alissa says:

    I just rearranged my house leading to my very own sewing room! Just finished a cute door stop and next on the the list are some pin cushions and some fabric baskets. Maybe also a fabric covered cork board too?? We’ll see!

  458. Sarah says:

    Pillows! After helping a new-to-sewing friend make a bunch of throw pillows and seeing how high the impact to effort ratio is, I am going to be making a batch of my own.

  459. Adrienne says:

    Up in the queue here is placemats for fall. Better get them finished before winter!

  460. Janey Joop says:

    I’m working on a primitive rug hook and a crazy quilt depending on my mood. Thanks for the opportunity to win some of that beautiful fabric. ;^)Janey Joop

  461. Amelia says:

    Love Amy Butler’s new line! I am in the process of making a 3/4 sleeve tunic for me out of an Amy Butler Ginger Blossoms stripe, and have cut out a very purple and green shiny mermaid costume for my 3 year old daughter!

  462. Rita Engard says:

    I am going to make some quilted bags for my 2 DGD’s barbie dolls while I surf for a new quilt idea.
    Rita E in AZ

  463. Lily says:

    Oh, Amy Butler, how I love thy fabric. My sister-in-law is getting married in 3 weeks, so I’m frantically making table runners and such. Once I’m in the clear, I’ve GOT to make curtains for my daughter’s room before the holiday bustle.

  464. Just Susan says:

    Hi,
    Working on a bisquit quilt and thinking about using the same squares in a tote bag. This site brings a tear to my eye everytime I think about it. Thanks for that! ~Susan

  465. Regina says:

    I am currently hunting just the right fabric for a dust ruffle for my toddler’s first “big boy bed” -hope to make one with pockets or a bedside pouch to hold his books and other goodies. “”winterizing” curtains for a few windows and a handful of embellished holiday towels round out my goals for the next few months.

  466. julie says:

    Beautiful! I would like to start making some Christmas gifts, but haven’t narrowed down to what I am going to make. As for the home, I am picking out fabric to make place mats for my mom!

  467. Marilyn says:

    I have been making soft pumpkins for my family and friends.

  468. emily ecklund says:

    I am beginning to work on a nursing cover for my next daughter who is due in January!

  469. Lori says:

    I’m totally inspired to do some sort of fabric art after the last post!

  470. tabitha says:

    I’m making eye masks for Christmas.

  471. Katie B. says:

    Nice prints! I’m in the planning stages of making a soft structured baby carrier, sort of like an Ergo. I also want to make a stroller quilt! So many projects, so little time…

  472. Monica gee says:

    Those fabrics are absolutely phenomenal! I love all of them! :-) Let’s see, around the house . . . I’m planning on creating new chair slip covers. I made some a year ago in a rather haphazard fashion, but now that I have been equipped (via SewMamaSew, of course!), I’d like to give it another go. My chairs have round seats, so that is the tricky part. Anyway, that is my project at the moment! Thanks.

  473. Annika says:

    I’ve got Halloween decorations to make and a quilt to finish for my little boy. And I’m waiting for some how-to inspiration to make him a play tent to go over his bed.

  474. MegVS says:

    Oh, such a sweet charm pack!

    I am planning on making some of Amy Butler’s gum drop pillows!

  475. Abbi says:

    I love the recess fabrics…I’ve been eyeing them! After reading Jen’s post about fabric art, I REALLY want to decorate my bedroom. Want to talk about blank, white walls! Don’t think it gets much worse. I’ve been looking online all morning (instead of working ;)) for some bold prints. Can’t wait to look in person this weekend!

  476. Krista says:

    I recently acquired a whole pile of faux suede in 5 different (complementary) colors. It was all in triangle and polygon pieces! I’m sewing all the scraps together randomly to make pillow fronts and backs for my long-term project of reupholstering (or slipcovering) my 1990′s light aqua sofa. I hope it turns out as nicely as my imagination thinks it will!

  477. Tamara Schroeder says:

    Beautiful fabrics!

    Currently I’m working on aprons, crayon rolls, soft toys, a sewing machine mat (with a scrap bag and pin cushion attached with velcro – still in design stage), as well as a nursing pillow and cover for a friend. I know… so many projects on the go. I really need to start finishing some of them.

  478. méri says:

    I’m working on making little bags to keep separated socks, underwear, t-shirts, etc when we travel.

  479. Natalie says:

    Funny you should ask about home projects when you are giving away charm packs. I would love to have more charm packs for the project I am at work at right now: Coasters! I found a great tutorial for these fun and pretty coasters. I posted about them in my blog this week.

  480. Ellen says:

    I am working on new Autumn themed pillows for my couch and love seat, then I may attempt the slipcovers!

  481. wendy says:

    Oooh, the Ginseng ones are too cute.
    I’m working on a Halloween advent calendar for the nieces. I actually made the panel with all the pockets last year, but I need to refill it with lots of small goodies for this year. No candy allowed, so it’s being stuffed with little homemade orange ribbon barrettes, teensy stuffed pumpkins, painted magnets, and tiny things like that.

  482. Amy Hodge says:

    I’m planning to make a cloth bag for our “mixed paper” recycling that we have to take out to the dumpster on the curb occasionally. I found a really great one in a Japanese craft book that I bought online, just have to get around to doing it!

  483. Alma-Momma says:

    All things baby! My brothers are both pregnant so I’ve got a quilt in the works and plans for bibs and burp cloths and tiny shoes!

  484. Rachael says:

    I’m going to make new curtains to match the new paint job in my bedroom.

  485. Sarah Lemmon says:

    I think these prints would go great with some of the home dec projects you’ve been featuring on your site. Thanks for all the great information … I think I’m going to do a few of those projects and I’ve sent some to my friends that will do the same.

  486. rachel says:

    I am working on a tie-dye quilt for my daughter.

  487. Jana says:

    Beautiful fabric! I’m planning on starting a fall wall hanging!

  488. Kelly says:

    Beautiful fabrics! I’m currently working on some sewn brooches and some softies for Christmas.

  489. whitney says:

    Working on a new room for a toddler and then redoing his room for the new baby. Sewing new curtains, blankets for the beds, and am now going to try the fabric art idea using stretcher bars. Thanks for the idea!

  490. Rachel says:

    Um, 45 gazillion? Or are you talking about the ones that I’m actually working on, not just planned for and bought fabric for? I have about 4 fleece pants I need to finish. Then I have a one piece jumper for my son that’s on hold until I’m more comfortable with knits. And always a couple of aprons sitting around.

  491. Christy says:

    Opps! Forgot to tell you that I’m working on curtains for my master bedroom :)

  492. Missie says:

    I forgot to tell you what I’m working on! I’ve had curtains for my bathroom in the works for awhile and am trying to get those done and start on Christmas gifts-towels, pincushions-all sorts of neat little goodies!

  493. Shannon says:

    I’m redoing all of the upholstery in our boat (think seat cushion type things but in a HUGE scale).

  494. Lisa says:

    Oops! Forgot to look at the guidelines up there. Too distracted by the pretty fabric! I have some aprons in the works as well as bags, but am really looking forward to a living room re-do starring that gorgeous ginseng fabric!

  495. CodeCrafter says:

    I’m working on a mini-quilt from my Mother for Christmas. I am also making bean bags for my toddler.

  496. Christy says:

    What lovely fabric. Thanks for all the great tutorials!

  497. Rachel says:

    I am working on a few things… 1. Curtains for our (well, technically my mom’s) mudroom and kitchen; 2. Cute fabric boxes for storing fabric in the sewing room 3. Tea towels! Everyone’s getting tea towels for Christmas! And 4. Finishing up the binding on a throw/lap blanket to celebrate the end of my mom’s first round of chemo! Take THAT, cancer!

  498. Anne says:

    Ooh, I love the Recess collection, would love to win! I’m doing some simple rod-pocket curtain panels and a couple more window seat cushions. I also need to get working on a fabric headboard … the recent tutorial has reminded me to get my butt in gear.

  499. Missie says:

    I am so loving your blog! I see so many things I want to try………….little by little! Your fabrics are to-die-for!!!! I really liked the post about recovering the glider and footstool…might have to try that for my mom for Christmas!!!! Thanks!

  500. Lisa says:

    The ginseng is still calling my name and I love that daisy chain! So glad to see Jessica’s fabric out and about. :)

  501. allison says:

    hi! i am working on curtains for my kitchen. also have a couple of quilts at various stages.

  502. Jen says:

    I am working on so many projects right now, it is hard to keep them all straight. Here is the short list:
    Dress for daughter, 10 aprons for customers, Amy Butler’s business card holder, 2 special order purses….Oh, and getting ready for the Christmas rush.

  503. Danielle says:

    I’m working on making monogrammed barrettes for my 2 year old twin girls so their teachers can tell them apart at pre-school! Thanks for the chance to win!

  504. Annie says:

    I am planning to make my first quilt for my toddler :) I’m using wee play charm packs from the American Jane line.

  505. Renee says:

    I just purchased 20 yards of outdoor fabric to make slipcovers for my deck furniture cushions. I figured that’d be a good winter project for me to work on. My plan it to make an envelope fold for the back cushion and do a zipper on the seat cushions. Buttonholes will allow the old velcro straps to poke through so I don’t have to deal with creating new ones. I figure I’ll use Autum’s Perfectly Portable Cushion tutorial for the seat covers.

  506. Louise says:

    I’ve recently discovered how easy it is to make fabric bags and I’m totally addicted! Everyone I know is going to get a back for Christmas! For my next project I’m going to make bags for my 4yr old twin nieces – they’ve just started swimming lessons and are loving it, so I’m going to make them patchwork drawstring bags that they can carry on their backs and keep their swimming kit in. I can’t wait to start – I probably won’t be able to wait until Christmas to give them though and will probably put them in the post as soon as they’re finished!

  507. melanie says:

    I’m so excited about the new Amy Butler collection! So romantic and beautiful!

  508. Nancy says:

    I am in the process of making labels for all the quilts I made for Christmas presents….Also hemmed my dining room and living room curtains….

  509. Okay so I just found this blog via my cousin who loves to sew. She showed me a bunch of tutorials and I’m really excited about them! I am dying to make a pillowcase dress for my baby girl. I recently just finished (yesterday!) a Halloween wall hanging and am loving it! It was made with one charm pack that I already had. I went to an open house and saw the wall hanging and bought the pattern, backing, and binding fabric and made it up! It was really fun and pretty simple so now I’m ready for something new! I’m excited to check out this blog! There are so many great ideas and it’s so motivating and I love, love tutorials!!

  510. Brigitte says:

    I’m sewing cushions for christmas, but cannot show them, because they are gifts ……. ;-)

  511. bec says:

    ooh…i am planning a lot. christmas is around the corner! which makes me excited to make things for gifts. now just to narrow it down.

  512. Marj Burrhus says:

    I love all of these designs!

  513. Becky S. says:

    Great fabric! So lovely.
    I have a friend getting married this weekend… And though it will be late, i’m planning on giving them a small treat for a table centerpiece. I’m taking a square of brown burlap and planning on stitching green-fabric leaves on it. I’ve never tried this before, but i like the idea, at least! Thanks for the opportunity!

  514. I am going to have to make a new roman shade for my daughters’ room. My eldest decided to pull the cord out of the rings which make it work… so…. Here’s to a new shade and hopefully a new way to make it that’s a bit more kid friendly?!?!

  515. Holly says:

    I’m totally going to make wall art from the previous post. I have loads of blank walls, and we’ve lived here 3+ years… *sigh*

  516. Carrie says:

    Beautiful fabrics. I’m currently planning an applique t-shirt with a matching skirt for my daughter. I am also dreaming about making curtains for my kitchen.

  517. Sarah says:

    I LOVE Amy Butler fabrics and am so excited about her new line! Now what to make…

  518. nettie says:

    i’d really like to make some curtains for my family room. I’m hung up on the color!

  519. Jenn Jones says:

    I’m just learning to sew…right now I am working on some baby bibs and burp cloths…have lots of pregnant gals at my church…

  520. Emily says:

    I’m currently working on some sewing projects for a nursery for our first child, a little boy expected in early December. My inspiration fabrics are the Michael Miller Dick and Jane series and I’m having so much fun putting it all together!

  521. erica says:

    I’m definitely making one of those bulletin boards that was posted earlier in the week. I have an old t-shirt with Wonder Woman on it that would be perfect!

  522. amanda says:

    Oh joy! Well, I’m actually planning on making lined curtains using the tutorial from this site. I haven’t picked the fabric yet, though…

  523. karen b says:

    My ‘plan’ is to make some new pillows for the sofa and cover a few boxes in fabric to tie it together till Christmas…need a fall chnage around here.

  524. Emily says:

    I’m making a jacket for my mother-in-law. It’s all done except the buttons– but I’m so nervous about ruining my beautiful creation with ugly, uneven buttonholes that it’s on hold as I practice, practice, practice.

  525. Becky says:

    Right now I am working on making my girls some messenger bags, and stationary holders, and then I am going to make them some crayon rolls.

  526. Erin J. says:

    I am going to make one of the hanging bed organizers that is so perfect because I have magazines laying all on the floor.

  527. Margaret says:

    Very pretty colours. I can see these in some of this weeks home decor. projects.

  528. Water Works says:

    I spent yesterday evening cutting strips of Anna Maria Horner fabrics to use with the Sew Mama Sew hot pads tutorial from earlier this month. After that, it’s an attempt to use today’s wall art tutorial to help a barren wall in my den. Thanks for all the inspiration.

  529. Huong Armstrong says:

    A project that I’m working on currently is making linen napkins with bias tape. I’m trying to figure out the mitered corner. Urgh…it’s going well but there’s a lot of seam ripping! I hope everyone has a great weekend.

  530. Julie says:

    I am working on a jumper for my 2 year old and have to start some fabric pumpkins for Halloween decor. Oh and a Tinkerbell costume for said 2 year old.

  531. Kristie says:

    I am planning to make a cushion for our window seat in the living room.

  532. Katie says:

    I love the “recess” fabrics, so I hope I win this week! I’m working on some fall jumpers for my little girl right now, and plan to make some wall art like in Jen’s post, but using a linen background with appliqued shapes (a tree? a bird?).

  533. Amy Geist says:

    I have plans to make my old curtains new again! I am still trying to decide what I will be adding to them. I would like to sew on some ribbon and maybe do some stenciling on them to match the pattern on my pillows. Still brainstorming. . .

  534. Hazel says:

    Curtains! How have I managed without curtains for 4 years? I really appreciate the recent tutorials, it reminded me of the pile of fabric just waiting to be sewn and hung in my windows. Afterward, maybe some coordinating pillows!

  535. elizabeth says:

    I just finished up a fall/halloween table runner. One side is for fall and the reverse is for Halloween, so it can be used the whole season. The kids would rather have the Halloween side all the time, though!

  536. Jodie says:

    Wow! gorgeous fabric!! I’m working on couch pillows. Nothing too fancy. I’m also working on totes…but I guess that isn’t considered “home sewing”…
