Create & Celebrate

We have one more Create & Celebrate post tomorrow. Enjoy these sewing successes today!:

  • Alissa’s been busy! She writes, “I made many pillows and cushions for my sister’s patio and used a tutorial from Sew,Mama,Sew! The tutorial was GREAT and I got wonderful results. I also finished some quilts, but I’m particularity proud of this one.”
  • Jessica from Juicy Bits writes, “I’ve been busy with kids birthday crafts lately. I posted a tutorial for these wool felt crown I made for each of my kids (and one for a friend). They’re great because they can be made for either a boy or a girl. The tutorial is here. I also did plenty of sewing for my daughter’s monster party including making a bunch of monster softies and sewing lots of decorations…”
  • Julie writes, “I’ve recently discovered a love for sewing and putting together colourful/wonderful fabrics. I started a blog earlier this year as a way to note my progress. Not too long after, I realized that this was becoming a part of me, and something that I truly love to do. I can’t wait to come up with new ideas and new projects to create!” Take a look at some of Julie’s recently completed totes on her Always Inspire blog.
  • Liz writes, “I just completed my first online tutorial for toddler 3-8 skirt. I love the free tutorials… I’ve got tons bookmarked and thought i should contribute to the list!.” Liz has a crafty blog along with her good friend: me and t.
  • Hannah wants to share her first attempts at sewing here and here. Great job, Hannah!
  • Carolyn created this child’s book quilt for her great nephew Weslety. She says, “It’s based upon Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel. I give the quilt along with a copy of the book it is based upon. Now I need to think of another book for Maggie who is due in December. Her mom likes pink — a challenge for me!”
  • Georgia from Puking Pastilles writes, “I made my son a Jango Fett costume for Halloween out of my very own pattern! I’m still working on the helmet, but he lives in his suit at the moment. He wore his SuperWHY! suit that I made him for Halloween last year pretty much EVERY DAY until it got too hot. I’m guessing this one will follow suit (ugh, no pun intended!). I also made my daughter a Word Girl costume!…”
  • Kim from Blessed Roots has a tutorial for you: “I have designed a fun trick-or-treat tote bag for Halloween. It uses the technique of applying binding tape to finish off raw seams, an easy bottom, and a fun felt design. Hope you enjoy!”
  • Sherrie just completed, …”My first skirt since 7th grade.” See the skirt on Sherrie’s I SAW IT! blog.
  • Kristen writes, “I created this growth chart for the Apartment Therapy Amy Butler Little Stitches Contest, and I posted a detailed tutorial on my blog.” She won the 2nd Place prize too! Congrats, Kristen!
  • Anja’s been working on a “recycle project;” she turned a baby blanket into a little girl’s dress!
  • Amy from AMY A LA MODE writes, “I’m really happy with the recent completion of my 4th quilt. It was a Stacked Coins pattern from Last Minute Patchwork+Quilted Gifts. I went nuts with all kinds of quilting! I have also been making early holiday gift progress, knowing that October was going to be a complete wash for me. I completed an Amy Butler Weekender Bag and handle grip as requested for my sister, and an Amy Butler Blue Sky Hat, as requested, for my mother. She wanted hers in red to wear to her Red Hat Society gigs so she could tell everyone her daughter made it for her!”
  • Janeen writes, “I’m new to sewing, and trying to save money on fabric, so I bought some fat quarters on sale at my local craft store. I had wanted to make a bag for my daughter for our little nature hikes. I discovered that a fat quarter is the perfect size to make an adorable little bag!” Find the tutorial on Janeen’s Your Impact Matters blog.
