Sandra from Sugar Cubes and Spice Cake is up next with another fun Back to School tutorial, but first we want to be sure you head over to her blog for lots of fun sewing inspiration. Sandra makes beautiful things for her daughters, like the great skirts pictured here! Sandra always has great tips about a pattern too; she shares what works and what she’s changed to work better (like this recent sun hat from a free pattern). Visit Sandra at Sugar Cubes and Spice Cake and come back for her Back to School tutorial!

From Sandra: My name is Sandra DeBary. I’m a wife, mother, daughter, sister, full-time HR professional, and avid seamstress. I have two beautiful daughters, and I love to sew for them, but the secret is that I’m really doing it for myself as much as for them. Sewing is my outlet, my stress relief, and my “me-time.” I’m a fearless seamstress, crafter, and do-it-yourself-er, and I’m willing to try almost anything at least once. I spend most of my limited free time sewing the girls’ clothes, making purses and wallets for my friends and family, and knocking off outfits or products that I’d rather make than buy. In a previous life, I was a teacher, and I love to pass along my love of sewing to anyone who will listen or read.
