Site Downtime

First, we want to let you know that we’re upgrading our server this weekend and may experience some downtime.  If you stop by and the site is unavailable, please check back soon.  We really shouldn’t be offline too much.   Thanks in advance for your patience.    (And don’t worry–we’ll still be posting our Scrap Buster ideas every day.)

New Products

We’ve been receiving tons of wonderful new fabric!

First, we have this awesome collection, Happy Campers, by Sandy Klop of American Jane.  The colors in this group absolutely remind me of my childhood wardrobe in the ’70s.  There is a great print that is actually 4 designs in one.  The image below shows it opened up, selvage to selvage.  See the cute border in between each design?  You have to add this one to your stash!  It also comes in brown and red.

We’re also thrilled to have My Happy Garden in stock.  This is our first 100% organic cotton collection and I’m sure we’ll see more.  Super cute, nice hand, great color.

The new group by Momo, Odyssea, just arrived.  I love all the blues in this collection.

Finally, we received a variety of stunning prints from the Kaffe Collective (Kaffe Fassett, Brandon Mably and Phillip Jacobs.)    Some of these just take my breath away.  We’ve carried these designers in the shop off and on over the years, and finally decided to give them a permanent space on our shelves.  Look for lots more from The Collective in the coming weeks and months.

Wouldn’t you agree that we have a little something for everyone?

    WIP…A reading (lap) pillow for my daughter, aprons for gifts, and caftan shirt for my husband.

  2. Shannon says:

    My to make pile has baby blankets, a picnic blanket to finish for christmas, another picnic quilt to cut and put together. Also, I have to make the tree skirt and a new Stocking for our newest family member this year! I’m also making a cathedral window quilt. I need to make headbands to match my daughter’s dresses that I just finished. Soooooo many projects in my mind that will one day come to fruition. I love the ideas on here!

  3. SahrangPanda says:

    I’ve only recently discovered this website and I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!! Yay! 🙂 I’m only 17, but I’ve completely fallen in love with sewing and I’m glad to find that I’m not the only one!!

    Okay.. WIP pile. Pretty big LOL! Over this weekend, I’m planning on finishing my friend’s birthday present (a little tote back with Oreo cookies on a plate-applique (I’m gonna try that applique tutorial you have on this site! It’s so useful! I’ve never thought of using a stabilizer so fabrics won’t pucker~) with a glass of milk applique!)

    Another project is for another friend’s birthday present: a hat, but he’s so loyal and friendly and caring, I’m making it into a very kawaii puppy hat 🙂

    Third project? Another birthday present LOL! It’s for a French exchange student at my school, and I’m sure she’s homesick, and though I don’t know her all too well yet, I’m making her a little drawstring-bag with little French-flags and French-people patterns 🙂 (I’m also sticking a can of nutella in it before I give it to her ’cause nutella is GODLY!)

    Fourth project! Just a little tote bag for myself (the purse I made last year is not cutting out for me anymore lol! It seems like as you get older, you have to have more stuff in your bag!)!

    Last project! My friend Nancy’s birthday (I never realized October was such a busy month for birthdays! Lol! I really should learn to not procrastinate D: ) is this Saturday! And since her last name is “Whalen” I’m making her a little blue tote bag with a blue whale applique 🙂

    Though sort of a lot of projects for myself, I’m having SO much fun doing it! And I’ve just noticed you have a little Facebook button at the bottom of this page, and I have Facebook! So I’ll just click on over there right after I click “submit comment”! Yay! 🙂

  4. brigitta says:

    I’ve just started sewing so my WIP pile isnt very big…yet!
    Im currently making a nice grey-white sweater, and I’ve bought fabric to make 3 dresses (or maybe 1 dress and 2 tunics), 1 pair of pants, 2 skirts and 1 longsleeve t-shirt.

  5. Cycling Farm Girl says:

    Currently, I am in progress of creating an apron…this is to just get me started as my big project is a queen size quilt. It’s a big challenge, but I can’t wait to get ‘practiced up’ for my beautiful burgandy quilt.

    I hope to win the scrap bag!!

  6. Amy says:

    That Happy Campers line is too cute! I’d love to make a quilt for my son from that fabric collection. I just finished the top of a quilt for my niece – am taking it to a friend today for longarm quilting!

  7. Anna says:

    We just moved into a new apartment. So I’m busy sewing curtains and cushion covers. My longerterm project is a big quilt for our bed.

  8. Steph says:

    I love the Happy Campers material. I’m starting an embroidery project to give away at Christmas. I think starting now in October will give me enough time to get them done.

  9. Linda says:

    Love the Odyssea. Working on a duvet bag. Thanks!

  10. April says:

    Wow! I can’t wait to see those Kaffe collection prints in person! Love the bold colors!

    two sets of burpcloths
    and prepping a new handbag! Gearing up for spring bags already!

  11. MamaRuck says:

    Beautiful fabric! I am drawn to the My Happy Garden. But I love all things Kaffe. I have some of his scraps saved for a quilt project I am building up to.

  12. Mama Rose says:

    My WIP is for the first time on planning ahead on the homemade Christmas gifts for the little one’s. Also a Playscape-Farm ;D DD is turning “1” at the very beginning of Dec., so much more to plan.
    By the way…that “Happy Camper” material is the absolute cutest!!

  13. Cindra says:

    Love the Happy Campers!! Working on different projects…

    told a friend about it!! Thank you!!!

  14. bittersweet says:

    My wip pile is surely at least a mile high. Currently I am working on a twin size quilt and just finished a double size quilt that is a pattern I made up. I have a pink and black quilt to make, a quilt that has one fabric in every block ( ex. green on green is the color I chose)and lots of baby quilts. I love love fabric and have a ton of scraps. I really like the charm packs.

  15. LisaCorrie says:

    my WIP pile is HUGE! I have to topstitch an apron waistband; put pockets on & hem my son’s pj bottoms; finish handsewing a binding on a quilt (1/2 way done); I have 2 kid’s aprons that need to be finished; a couple of pants that need to be hemmed into shorts; then put handles on the bags made from the portion cut off from the pants; oh, and about 5 quilt tops in progrss using my scraps..the ideas were from Wow, that doesn’t sound so bad! Although, I have been working on my WIP for the last month. I have made a big dent! Yay me!
    But, that was only my sewing WIP…there is still knitting and crocheting WIP’s too! Ah me!

  16. Mystica says:

    Have two work in progress. One is a log cabin style quilt three quarters pieced together and the other is a simple block quilt a baby quilt actually which is being hand quilted. Both are christmas presents. I never work one piece till its finished. I have to have two or three on the go at one time!!!


  17. I am working on a quilt for one of my daughters. I have about 3 patterns staring at me on my work surface for Christmas presents. An apron pattern I bought from Sew Mama Sew, a jumper pattern for grand daughters and a bag pattern. Humm. Better get busy.

  18. andrea says:

    Love the new Happy Camper line!!

  19. Shannon says:

    Can you believe that I’m only now getting the chance to make the Made by Rae Spring Ruffle top–one for my daughter, one for myself!?! ha ha ha!

  20. jaya says:

    hi, my current wip is a princess dress for my daughter.actually, two because her sister is sure to want one and i already have the fabric on hand. their winter wardrobe is waiting to be added to the wip list once this is finished!

  21. Elizabeth says:

    Gee, I have a ton of things in my pile: flouncy aprons, napkins (just waiting to be hemmed), patchwork bags (the pieces ordered and photographed, waiting to be sewn up), several skirts…but I got sidetracked by the recent link to the thumbtack tutorial that uses up just tiny scraps…so my pile of fabric is going down only a tiny bit!

  22. Susan says:

    I’m currently teaching my son to sew–he’s making an apron.

  23. Angel says:

    So, so many WIPs! My poor husband and sewing room! Current on the list are finishing matching pjs for my daughters and her cousins! I got until next Saturday!!! wish me luck!

  24. Christine says:

    I’m working on finishing a hot water bottle cover…knitting the top of it.

  25. Wow, nice fabrics. I’m working on a bag for a friend, a boy quilt, a family quilt, placemats using Ikea fabric…and so on. It’s healthy I guess to have at least 5 WIPs at all times…never have nothing to do!

  26. Rachel says:

    Work in progress right now would be a color wheel quilt. I am having issues getting it to lay flat, and need to work that out. Other than that, I need to be adjusting me new dress form! yay!!! 😀

  27. Michelle Cress says:

    Pajama pants are in my unfinished pile, along with a couple of bags, and various quilts needing the final bindings. I don’t get why its so hard to just complete something!

  28. Jennifer says:

    Just introduced to your blog by my newly-wed daughter. Love it! I am a quilter, currently busy creating for – a brand new co-op of artisans creating items for babies, children, and hip moms in the Central Florida area. WIP – Baby quilts using new Moda collections:”Baby Brown Bird” and Fiona’s Frolic fabrics.

  29. Megan Kinyon says:

    I love the odyssea fabric the best. Does the fabric have to be cut out to be considered a WIP? If so I have 3 quilts in my WIP pile. One of them will probably get finished in November because it is a baby gift for a baby born in July. The other two won’t get finished until later. Because I have tons of Christmas gifts to get started on!

  30. Andrea P. says:

    Love the fabric! I am currently working on a fairy costume, an octopus costume, a witch costume and bean bags.

  31. tania says:

    Im working on some fabric covered buttons,yoyo’s and pincusions. I love all the scrap ideas you have and want to try some of those aswell.

  32. Andi says:

    I tried to work through my WIP pile this summer – I did get all the clothes made (yay!) but still have lots of quilts to do! And then there is Christmas sewing to get started…..

  33. Marisa says:

    I’m working on finishing up a mystery quilt I started back in April and I’m getting ready to machine quilt a Dresden Fan quilt I made for my mom!

  34. Kim says:

    WIP pile… I’ve been working on crayon rolls. lots of crayon rolls. One of those things that’s easier to make lots of at once. Just sent 5 home with my MIL for all our nieces and nephews, and have lots more to do here to give all my kiddos friends as bday gifts this year. And Christmas for our other niece and nephew. And my neighbor wants a few for her nieces and nephews too.
    Also just finished the top to an outfit for my 1 y.o. and have to make the pants now.
    Finally, have a pile of scraps & hexagon papers on the nightstand for TV watching and a little hand sewing fun!
    Love to see what everyone else is working on… but it just makes me want to make way more stuff than I have time for! The next thing I want to start is a crochet snuggie! How fun!

  35. Michelle Kan says:

    Gorgeous fabrics there!!

    Work in progress:
    **** Shirring flowery blouse with an attached fabric flower for my 2.5 year old daughter
    *** Wristlet pouch for my sister
    ** Handsewn snap clip cover for friend’s daughter
    * Baby tie for my 7months old son

    It’s SEW fun to SEW!!

  36. jackie says:

    i am obsessed with the happy camper fabric! my wip is halloween costumes.

  37. Bambi Poulson says:

    There are several of those fabrics that would work so well on finishing up my daughters birthday bed quilts and a wall hanging I am working on for a christmas gift. They all have gotten put on hold since hubbie lost his job due to lack of funds but it has forced me to get creative. I have been digging through scrap bags I already have and have found several pieces of fabric I adored. It definietly has put my creative bone to work.

  38. Kaye says:

    Love the new fabrics! My current WIPs are a Log Cabin quilt for my bed, several child aprons for my shop, a skirt I cut out for the summer skirt sewalong that I never finished, and several small projects cut out to sew on as time allows.

  39. Angela says:

    In my WIP bag I have a grey pencil skirt that I make plans to finish every weekend, but those plans are usually replaced with a cleaning to-do list.

  40. Alice says:

    Oh goodness. I’ve got mostly Halloween costumes in my to-do pile. So many!

  41. Ashley says:

    Sandy Klop can do no wrong in my book! Love the new American Jane!

  42. Jessica says:

    Oh, that WIP pile. How it does not shrink. I have … a vintage dress I’m refashioning into a shirt, a sweater that I’ve sewn buttons all over [only 4 more to go!], a Fall skirt upcycle that I shelved last year and need to pull out again, a quilt I’m making for my best friend, a queen-sized quilt I’m supposed to be finishing for me [that I started 10 years ago, oops], and a couple bags for friends. Hm. I’m also knitting a scarf for my mom and a sweater for me. Yup, that sounds like a typical WIP list.

  43. Katie says:

    Sigh…love Kaffe Fassett. Oh, shame on me. I have soooo many WIPs right now. I’m working through some blocks for Cornbread and Beans Quilting’s Sig Block Swap and I’m making embroidered tea-towels for my mum and a set of pencil cases for my niece and a baby quilt for a friend…and I’m cutting for a nine-patch of my very own. I hope to have them all done by the end of November though!

  44. Jenna A. says:

    I have a WIP list which includes some patchwork placemats (from a tutorial here on SMS!), curtains, and thinking of a handmade gift for a little girl turning one. I can’t decide between clothes or a toy??
    However, I’m 38 weeks along and I don’t know when these things will actually get done! I spent a lot of energy already this month finishing up things for new baby and big sister!

    Love the sneek peak and new fabrics!

  45. Margie says:

    Well I’m working on purses & 2 pairs of pants. I have numerous others things that I need to get done but didn’t start yet. Winter nightgown for my sister & pillowcases.

  46. Concha says:

    Wonderful, dreamy fabric… as always! 🙂

  47. wendy says:

    I’m working on some fabric birds with wire armitures . . . hopefully they’ll be done by the Holidays!

  48. Deb Cameron says:

    Ooooh, I just love Kaffe Fasset’s fabrics, I have a large piece of his Henna Navy (I think that’s right) which I just love – the colours are so vibrant and the cotton so soft, I think it will become a favourite skirt. In my scrap bag at the moment are some scraps left over from Moda’s Momo Wonderland collection and I think I might make some of Lolly Chop’s butterflies with a selection of the pinks – how gorgeous!

  49. Cami Paul says:

    I have a wip pile that I plan on doing sooner than later and one that is really long term. They consist of pj pants for the kids, baby quilt for a co-worker and a quilt for my own son.

  50. Terri HArlan says:

    Oh pick me please, I just need the time to sew. 🙂 I have 3 quilts now that are half finished

    Wow, some great new fabric to drool over..

  52. I am working on making a baby bag for me (baby due in January 🙂 Binding my first large quilt! Ummm, organizing my sewing closet….and making 2 baby quilts. I am having a fun weekend 🙂

    My WIP is a quilt for my youngest grandson!…
    Love your new fabrics!

    Burp clothes, appliqué onesies, and a table runner!

  58. Judy D. says:

    lots of baby quilts in my pile! i love the happy campers and the party dress looks wonderful!

  59. carrie says:

    It just keeps growing…. I have napkins and place mats, a purse, pj pants that I couldn’t get done during the pj thing going on in the forum, but I am still determined to finish, then of course all the holiday stuff that still needs to get done… whew.

  60. kim says:

    My WIP is a quilt for my first child! I’m 5 months pregnant so I still have time! Also want to start a christmas quilt soon…

  61. Margaret says:

    Oh my WIP pile … A Buttercup Bag from Made by Rae, a simple blouse pattern from her (appropriate as a maternity top, which I still need, but much more summery than I’ll be able to wear if I finish it now), and a little decorative quilt that I started years ago! I think it’ll be perfect for the little boy we have on the way, though, so I really need to finish it up!

  62. brenda king says:

    Right now I’m working on a clothes pin bag. I’ve still got one from 1978. Time for a new and improved.

  63. Tara says:

    I’m working on a denim baby blanket, a wallet, and two purses right now.

  64. Rochelle says:

    MY WIP:
    clean out, paint, and move into my sewing room (this weekend?), finish a pleated skirt for my daughter, and hem a shirt for my son’s teacher. I have other sewing projects waiting to be cut out….so I guess they aren’t actually works in progress yet, are they? Can’t wait to get to them!

  65. Nichole says:

    WIP…birthday pjs, refitting a too large neckline on a summer shirt (hmm…maybe I’ll just wait till next spring to finish that)and some baby gifts- booties and burp cloths so far.

  66. Sherri I says:

    I am at the binding stage of a baby quilt. Thanks for the giveaway!

  67. Shaz says:

    I’m working on some of Heather Bailey’s pincushions. I have a pear and a turtle on deck at the moment, nevermind the growing number of quilt tops I’ve also started. 🙂

  68. Deb in AZ says:

    My WIP is a kitty block Christmas quilt for my SIL. Also a fall apron for my sis.

  69. April says:

    I try really hard to not cut into a new WIP until I finish the last one, but…

    Currently I’ve got one quilt, two top (one that just needs buttons, so that doesn’t count, right?) and one bag.

  70. Tanya says:

    Right now I have a bunch of wool pieces to needlefelt for a craft show next Sat!

  71. Michelle says:

    I’m working on Halloween costumes this week. Obie-Wan & Princess Leah 🙂

    sorry, an elephant walked across my keyboard there!

    I’m making a skirt from clothkits…

  76. tjesa says:

    So many WIPs, where to start? Gotta put the binding on my wonderful bargello quilt for my son. And with a few inches of SNOW on the ground this Sat. AM, a great time to get started. Thanks for the fabric tour!

  77. Ann Rose says:

    My WIP pile includes the start of more throw pillow covers (made a set for a friend last weekend, now want to tweak the design a little) and a very strong desire to break out some charm pack sets to try my hand at the top for a lap quilt. Plus, the mending I hand-sewed on my husband’s pants (popped seam) survived the washer, so I am feeling quite accomplished!

  78. Lynn says:

    I have a pile of ufos that I have been working my way throught these past few months. The past few weeks I’ve been finishing up halloween projects from last year (and beyond). Some of my ufos take a few minutes to complete(shame on me) and some several hours. A couple need to be taken apart and requilted (the worst kind of ufo).

  79. Love the new camping fabric. I am currently working on the cutest Dick and Jane baby recieving blanket and burp pads.

  80. Lynn Hynes says:

  82. Kym says:

    The teetering WIP pile includes store-bought plain tees to be embellished, a naked doll and thoughts of a scrap-buster entry.

  83. Lisa says:

    My works in progress are starting to pile up. A quilt for my husband, a quilt for my in-laws, a quilt for my daughter. Did I mention they’re all Christmas presents?? Luckily I just finished my daughter’s halloween costume tonight!

  84. wendy says:

    My WIP pile includes several purses, a couple of pairs of pajamas, a dress, a jacket, two quilts… wait, three quilts… no make that four, actually… two sweaters, a shrug, a scarf, 3 sets of socks, a pair of mittens. Wow, I didn’t realize how bad it was. I’m embarrassed.

    Hi, At the top of my wip is my red and aqua Disappearing 9 patch blocks!

  93. Jessica Fuester says:

    I’m currently working on a cute Fall skirt- I better hurry, though, or else my pregnant belly won’t allow me to wear it!! 🙂

  95. carla says:

  102. April says:

    Just finished my kids pirate costumes… and getting ready to start mine and my husbands costumes. 🙂

  103. dragonsecrets says:

    My WIP pile has purses, pin cushions, quiltlets, pot holders, and various other gifts. I think some of these scrap buster ideas will be added to the pile and help me meet my budget for the holidays. Thanks for the ideas.

I’m part way through making a quilt for my new niece, I also have a partly done 9-patch quilt that has been hanging around for months, a couple of embroiderys that have started but nor prgressed very far and now I have joined a Flickr embroidery swap that is a bit scary – everyone seems so talented and I am more than a bit nervous about it!

  121. Sarah says:

    My WIP is trying to establish a nice little bundle of fabrics to work with. The My Happy Garden collection looks so dreamy and comforting, and I really, really like that it’s organic. I’d love to see how it feels.

  122. Jane Metzger says:

    The camping fabric is the bomb! I’m currently working on the patchwork twirly skirt from my first purchase of fabric and patterns from Sew Mama Sew! Got the patches cut out, and will be sewing soon. Then onto Oliver + S pajamas for both kids!

  127. Emily S says:

    I have a quilt top finished using Far Far Away. I was so thrilled to find it on sale here a couple of weeks ago!

  128. shelly says:

    I’m working on some tote bags for Christmas gifts, but I made a mistake last time I sewed and have to unpick, so the projects have languished…

  129. dorothy says:

    I’m already envisioning projects with the camping fabric. Love it.

    My WIP today: an infant romper crafted from an up-cycled sweater.

  130. Misty.Creek says:

    I’ve got a few more purses to make for Christmas presents, but I’ve promised myself to work on my mending/hemming/patching pile first. Christmas isn’t that soon anyway, right?!

  131. Grace Wong says:

    right now, I’m making a cute pear zakka bag using a tutorial in zakka crafts. 😀

  140. Sora says:

    I’m making an apron for my friend’s daughter who’s having Birthday party tomorrow. Gotta finish it tonight….

  143. Mary says:

    Ooh, that Party Dress is fabulous!

  144. Liz B says:

    I’m in the planning stages of a baby quilt for a colleague. He and his family are big on living green, so I’m pulling from my stash of vintage linens, trying to find stuff that isn’t flowers for his soon-to-be-born son. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway!

  145. Andrea says:

    Current workS in progress include a Red Riding hood cape and apron for my 4 year-old, a woodcutters outfit for my 6-year-old, and a werewolf costume for my 10-year old (he refused to be just a wolf, on the grounds that he has never worn a single scary costume for Halloween, and this year he is going to.
    Also working on pencil and crayon rolls, cushions, winter dresses and pyjamas for 3 upcoming craft shows, along with more pumpkins (I hope) and some kind of stuffed christmas ornament.
    I love the camper fabric, as I camp with a group of families every year, and would love to make them something with it.

  146. Caren says:

    I have a million and one WIP! Cell phone case, purse from a pattern, hemming/mending (always!), cape for my toddler from a pattern, birthday banner, and cloth napkins. There are others I’m sure…there always is!

    Love the camping and the party fabric. Gorgeous! I am making corduroy skirts for my girls and a tote bag for mom. Both are at the top of the giant WIP pile on my dresser, waiting for sewing machine tune-up!

  148. Janelle says:

    My current WIP is a quilt top that is waiting to be quilted and bound. It will be my first quilt that I will machine quilt myself using stippling. I need to practice a little more before I dig into the real thing…

  149. urbanhen says:

    I’m currently working on a pair of lightweight denim overalls for my daughter and then moving on to her Halloween costume. She’s going to be a ladybug 🙂

  151. rebecca says:

    That fabric is fantastic. I am currently making reusable shopping bags that I will be giving away as christmas gifts. I love practical gifts!

  152. Rachel says:

    My current wip is an apron from my bro-in-law’s cast off shirt. It was new but without tags so I could let it go to waste. I also have a skirt to alter.

  153. I’m almost done with a really cute skirt! My first one with any complexity. Also in my WIP pile is another entry to the Scrap busters contest….

  154. amylouwho says:

    I have 3 quilts in progress and a bag. ALong with many almost-WIPS. 🙂

  158. kelly jo says:

    I’m currently finishing up a quilt and working on creating a pattern for a T-shirt bib for my daughter. We received one as a gift and she’s outgrowing it, but I love it, so I’m trying to recreate it.

  159. Ann says:

    I am in heavy denial about Halloween, so instead of making costumes, I am working on a blouse for my 8 year old and a jumper for my baby – both with lace I made myself!

  160. PJS says:

    wow what a fabulous collection of fabric!

  161. Lea-Ann says:

    My wip pile has a baby quilt for my cousin’s baby, a denim quilt for my daughter, and two curtain tiebacks that I just cannot decide if I like them enough to sew rings on them or not. I finished my purse yesterday, so now I feel like my wip load is lighter!

    Ha! in my WIP pile… let’s see… scrappy log cabin blocks…Gail Pan BOM… some clothing… you name it, I got it going!

    I am binding a baby quilt and making some purses for Christmas presents. Hopefully if I start them now I’ll get them done by then.

  167. Jen says:

    my WIP is a laptop cozy for my brother’s birthday, instead of buying batting for the cushy inside, i went to the thrift store and bought an old fleece jacket to use. and i have to sew boyscout patches onto my friend’s son’s sash.

  168. Krystina says:

    I am almost done with the Charming Handbag from Bend the Rules Sewing. I made it with Far Far Away fabrics I bought in your store (and I LOVE by the way). I’m thinking about making a crochet roll that I saw on this site during fat quarter month.

  169. amy says:

    My WIPs are cross stitched coasters and bookmarks, snack bags, tote bags, and knitting a felted bag. I’m trying to make all my xmas gifts this year, but my 4th month old seems to have other plans.

  170. Rachel says:

    I do like the My Happy Garden Fabric – I saw it on here the other day in a smaller swatch and now I understand what it all is!

  174. Cecily says:

    Beautiful fabric

  175. Susana says:

    My wi(slow)p is a plain-spoken-ish bed quilt for the itty-bitty one, which I hope to finish before she turns 1, at the stroke of midnight, new-year’s eve. Or I’ll turn into a pumpkin!
    Love the fabrics, especially the four-in-one.

  176. Carol says:

    I am making a wine bottle bag with yo-yos sewn all around. The color scheme will be blacks & whites.

  177. Hannah says:

    At the moment I’ve got to sew the button and loop closure onto a felt cuff, which I’ve been putting off for some reason. I also need to wash the white pillowcases I just bought to embroider for my sister and her new husband’s Christmas present. Just mending, other than that!

  178. Aimee says:

    Ohhh. I have too many WIP’s. A couple of quilts, pajama pants (yep, still working on those), curtains, and an advent calendar. Just not enough time in the day!

  179. carolyn says:

    Right now I have a Halloween quilt, several Christmas quilts, and various other quilts ready to be quilted….all have been put aside to make Baby clothes for my first Grand child…a girl…due on Valentine’s day. I have one corner of my quilt room filled with quilting UFO’s and now a huge pile of children’s fabrics and patterns that we are busily cutting and sewing.

  180. Sara says:

    I have so many WIPs it’s insane…A cathedral windows quilt that might take until 2020, a double wedding ring, a log cabin, and lots of little zakka projects just waiting for the finishing touches.

  181. Stephanie says:

    I have so many projects going on right now- sewing and otherwise! I’m a fairly new sewer but have become instantly addicted! I’m making a skirt for myself and some reusable gift bags for the coming holidays.

    I’m currently working on a Trick or Treat Bag for my daughter.

  188. Lisa says:

    My WIP is my first project EVER, a cart cover. Although I have one already, my sister’s beautiful hand-me-down, I thought it would be extra special if I made my Olivia one myself. Already have her Halloween pattern waiting to be started on this weekend, then, her Christening Dress (pattern already purchased as well). Some way to start sewing huh lol. Thank you to my Mother-In-Law for holding my hand w/ her expertise. 🙂

  189. Tammy :) says:

    Those fabrics are so cute! My work in progress is a scarf swag that I am making for the living room curtains. It was a swag for one window and I am converting it by adding fabric to make it stretch over two windows.

  190. Crissy says:

    I’ve got a crochet hook and knitting needle holder in the queue right now. And with Christmas just a couple of months away, I’ll be starting on some napkins, my first quilt and a couple of skirts. I need to get started!

  191. Diana says:

    Let’s see, a summer dress and tunic (whoops, it’s October in Northern Michigan, which means that will probably wait until spring), a baby quilt and I need to finish quilting a queen size quilt I started for my bro.

  192. meg says:

    Well, I have one quilt ready to be basted, and I need to get on it tomorrow; it needs to be finished in a couple of weeks. But – a friend had her baby a month early, so another quilt top is in the works. AND I need to try my hand at a onesie dress after spying one of this week’s tutorials. So much to do! I really should step away from the computer….

  193. Betsy says:

I am making blue Christmas dresses for my 2 year old triplet girls, also making them some pink fleece coats with a sherpa/suede collar and cuffs, just cleaned out and switched clothes for the seasons and have a huge pile of upcycling to do, I add ruffles to pants to make them longer or make them into skirts, I added some knit onto some of my 5 yr old sons tees that were too short, I also have a bunch of Christmas gifts and felt food to crank out but haven’t even started yet.

  221. Morgan says:

    Is it a WIP if it’s mostly in my mind? Hehe, not counting those mental projects I’m working on little Christmas gifts – plastic bag holders mostly.

  222. Amy says:

    Oh, your fabric swatches make me want to get down to some serious sewing so I can buy more fabric! My WIP include a big quilt top that’s almost done, some napkins to use up some linen I have, and I’m going to attempt to make some tiny coin purses using some little brass purse frames I picked up. Not sure how those will come out…

  223. elana says:

  224. Ellen says:

  231. Susan says:

    I’m working on a lap quilt for a friend…using up lots of scraps in honor of scrap month. But have lots more and am enjoying all the suggestions.

  232. Jody says:

    I have to say that I am crazy excited about the Party Dress fabric! How beautiful! Waiting for that will be hard.

  234. sara says:

    my current WIPs: two lady bug costumes for my twin girls and Oh Fransson’s advent calendar.

  236. Alisa says:

    The fabrics are wonderful. My wip are some darling little cupcake purses. Really fun to make and fun to pick the fabric for. Really, what I should be doing is cleaning my work space. It is so cluttered! Maybe after the little purses……

  237. Sunny says:

    My WIP pile is overloaded. I am trying to get a nursing cover finished as well as a molly monkey and some great backpacks. I am getting tired just thinking about it. I want to get them finished soon, my little baby girl is due next month. 🙂

  241. Lea says:

    My actual WIP’s include banners with my kids’ names and some stuffed animal for friends’ babies. I have a bunch of other projects that I wish could make it to the WIP category – soon, I hope. (And also – does a pile of pants that need to be patched count as work in progress?)

  242. Kim Guerrier says:

    My mind is reeling thinking about what I could make. 🙂

  243. LiEr says:

Further WIP is a double wedding ring table runner for my partents-in-law’s 50th wedding day (golden wedding-is it the same in english?). It will happen on Christmas Eve, so enough time for me to finih it.

    placemats for my mother-in-law
    a tote bag for me
    curling iron/straightening iron travel bags for two friends
    AB snuggie wrap blanket for a coworker who’s due at Thanksgiving

    And since my sewing room is completely torn up because we’re refinishing the wood floors in that room, I’m feeling a little overwhelmed! 🙂

  261. TiinaK says:

    I am sewing quilt bags. Lovely new fabrics… If I only had more time and money….

    A major project in my WIP pile is my Dear Jane quilt. Thanks for the chance.

    I am working on a Max costume from “Where the Wild Things” are for Halloween, 2 baby quilts, bird and whale scrap ornaments for my Christmas tree, a dress, and I am working through the projects in “Weekend Sewing” by Heather Ross. I love that girl, and her prints. Please order more!

  277. Katie A. says:

    Well, my WIP pile just got bigger, because I was told that the girl baby I just finished a quilt top for is actually a “they don’t know yet” baby. Unisex, here I come!

  278. Katie says:

    WIP pile includes: a quilt… and a ton of other things to start such as: a skirt, a couple dresses for baby, a shirt, and a birthday present… I’m thinking an apron. A friend recently unloaded some fabric onto me, which is great! However, it also piles up my to-do list and fills up the fabric storage space and so therefore I must sew.

  279. April says:

    I’m working on a reversible bag for my friend’s birthday. One side has a psychedelic design and the other has trees. It’s called “Getting High in Nature.” 🙂

  280. Ricki says:

Right now I am currently making embroidered and appliqued Celtic knotwork wall quilts (some are mini size around 18″… some will be table topper size. I want to get good at it then plan to make a bed size quilt with applique, embroidery and patchwork. I plan to post pics soon, just need to get my Gettysburg trip photos off camera first.

  298. betsy m says:

    Wow, that camping fabric is GREAT! My WIP is very unexciting – need to re-hem all of my little girl’s school uniforms this weekend.

  299. alison c says:

    I’ve agreed to do my first stall at a fair. AM kind of wishing I hadn’t too much to sew too little time. I can’t decide what to make either. So far we’re planning bibs, baby change mats, diaper clutch, christmas stockings, crayon rolls……. the list goes on!

    Oh and I was lucky enough to win some happy garden fabric and it is fantastic – totally in love with it!

  300. Rachel says:

    That camping fabric is so cool! I saw it yesterday but no way could I tell how many patterns there were from the image–you should add that image to the description in store. My WIP(s) are a dress for my sewing class and curtains for the kitchen, hopefully finishing one of those this weekend.

  301. Elizabeth says:

    My WIP includes an apron, several quilts and hemming some curtains!

  312. ktquilts4fun says:

    I just need to finish a few napkins to use up scraps from a Fall table quilt. Next up is a cordory jacket!



  313. Marsel says:

    Your new fabric always inspires me to start a new project…but I shouldn’t try anything new right now since my WIP pile is currently piled high with two outfits for my daughter, lots of mending, a quilt, and a pair of pajama pants for me (that I didn’t get to finish in September…)! It can’t ever hurt to add new fabric for the future, though… 🙂

  314. Rachel says:

    I have a baby quilt in progress. I am anxious to start on a new one with all of the lovely new fabric avail. I really, really love the new Momo fabric!

  320. Cindy says:

  321. megelin says:

    Stylish Fabric! Currently, I’m smocking a bishop dress for my 4 year old. It’s black and white gingham with black scottie dogs. Each scottie dog has a little red bow around his neck.

  336. katie says:

    Works in progress: Amy Butler Frenchy bag — trying the smaller bag size — fabrics are a little bear print (Japanese fabric — got a couple of years ago) and a solid green chenille for the body — and some circly blues + greens inside. I may do the long handles on the smaller bag — I’m an over-the-shoulder kinda gal. Also in progress is a new curtain for our patio door, using black/botanical vases fabric bought 4 years ago for this project. (Nothing like jumping right on to the project.) The big deal on this project is cutting up a white cotton + lace tablecloth (banquet-table size) for a large ‘cuff’ coming over the top of the curtain. I’m hoping it looks as great as I see it in my mind’s eye.

  337. Jenny says:

    a purple silk regency era corset! 🙂

    Those new fabrics are so beautiful!


  338. Holly says:

    Works in progress: two little doctor outfits for my girls halloween costumes!

    Right now my WIP box is holding tons of unfinished goodies. 3 halloween costumes for the kiddos, training bras, a lavendar and yellow shirt for me, a pair of baby booties…..I guess I should stop starting new projects and finish what I have, as that was only a sampling of all that’s in there!

Too many to list, but I have a nine-patch quilt along project that I abandoned and need to get back to. But my biggest ongoing project is a Dear Jane quilt that I never seem to have time to work on. If only I didn’t have to work for a living — I’d have so many more hours to sew…

    My WIP pile is growing. I have a lot of projects on the go for a craft fair I’m entering on the 24th. So there are dolls, pillows, pincushions and more all awaiting the final touches.

    Plus some stuff just for me – a jacket and a skirt.


  390. kriswithmany says:

    Hmmm. I have a huge WIP pile. About 5 or 6 six different quilts, and probably a dozen garments, but I need to work on Halloween costumes next.

  391. Ashley Ann says:

    I’m currently finishing up some bags, late quilting bee blocks, and a very late birthday quilt for a girl who is too young to ever remember how late it will be! 😀

  392. Shannah says:

    Exciting fabrics!

    I am currently working on a quilt that is taking an embarrassingly long amount of time. It will be lap-size, to reside on my couch and perfectly coordinates with everything there–green and brown. 🙂

  393. JoAnn says:

    My current wip pile – I am in the middle of a “learn to quilt” course and need to get my blocks done so I can learn how to “square them up” etc etc! My other wip is altering men’s jockey shorts so that my dad can hook his nephrostomy bags to them without having to tape them to his legs….!

  394. Robin in New Jersey says:

    I am presently sewing throw pillows for myself and my daughter. She can sew, but since getting married and having 3 kids, she asks me to make things for her!

    I am also knitting a sweater for my granddaughter and working on embroidery for a future quilt.

  395. anita says:

    I love this month’s theme, scrap buster. I’ve got a bunch of scraps and the pile just seems to grow.

  396. Heather B. says:

    My WIP pile includes my daughter’s Rainbow Brite costume, scrap letter baby blocks for a baby shower, scrap appliqued name pillows for several children’s Christmas gifts, and a knitted hat for my husband (because there is a rumor that winter is a-coming). I think that’s everything. 🙂 Thanks for having this contest, it makes my Fridays a liitle better.

  397. Rachel M says:

    I’m currently making my Christmas decorations. I’m making heart shaped decorations at the moment, out of red fabric with little holly sprigs all over it. I’m making a full tree’s worth of fabric decorations so that my 18 month old son can’t break them!!!

  398. Sylvie says:

    What a wonderful choice of fabric!
    It is quite hard to choose the one I prefer. Maybe the one with the alphabet?

  399. Celeste says:

    Christmas gifts are on the docket starting this week (some dolls for my children are up first), as well as some flannel pajama pants for my son now that the weather is turning cool.

  400. Sarah E. says:

    Wow, gorgeous! I wish I could go to houston!

    Right now, I am redoing my baby’s room, so I should… be making curtains and a dust ruffle to start!

  401. Deborah S. says:

    I love all of these scrap projects. I am currently working on a cute little spider dress for my 5 month old granddaughter. I have about 10 projects going at once right now, but with Halloween coming quickly I had better get going!

  402. Melissa says:

    I am making little baby booties for my wonderful friends who have recently had babies. I am so proud of them and the amazing mothers they are!
