Sew Waterproof coasters and a Giveaway

Sew waterproof coasters, made using iron on vinyl.

I recalled a conversation hubby and I had some time back. Me: How many times do I have to ask you nicely not to put your cold cans on that table.  The condensation just keeps making big puddles. Husband: You are always looking for something to sew.  Why don’t you make me something. Me:  Really?  I’d love to make you something if you’d use it.  What colors do you want? Husband: Red and black. And I’m ashamed to say that I did order some fabric and another surprise supply and then I got so busy with all of the sewing projects for me (and all of you), that his project never even got started and I still nagged him about leaving puddles on the table.  Poor guy. Then I got a copy of Kitchen Stitches.  One of my bloggy buddies, … Continue reading

Felt Gingerbread House – Seasonal Sewing Series

Make this cute felt gingerbread house with removable felt candy shapes.

I’m so excited to be here today! It’s so fun to sew for the holidays! My name is Heather and nickname Heather Feather. I blog about my creative “flights” over at Feathers Flights. I have a two year old son, a baby girl on the way, and am married to a man in law school . I love sewing and decided to make a holiday activity for my son to give him something fun to do as I get busier with holidays. I came up with a felt gingerbread house that he can put felt candy on. It teaches him shapes, and I don’t have to worry about him eating tons of candy! I set up the house to for pictures, and my son couldn’t wait to play with it! You can see his hand sneaking in!

Light up Princess Dress – Seasonal Sewing Series

Make this incredible light up dress for your little princess. At So Sew Easy.

Greetings, So Sew Easy readers!   I’m Kat from Sew Chibi!   Today, I’m here to share my seasonal sewing project with you: The Hikari (Light) Dress!   I love pushing myself.  I thought of what a little girl would adore to wear to make her feel like a real-life, fairy princess. I’ve sewn so many challenging things (including sewing with liquid); I constantly push myself to go where I haven’t seen others go yet.  It didn’t take me long to settle upon sewing a dress with lights in it. Pretty tricky to figure out how to execute it until I had the means and the vision:  battery operated LED lights and tunnels (channels) for the lights to run through to be dispersed throughout the dress. The key is the battery operated lights.  The strands are not very long, just about … Continue reading
