Secret Sewing #SecretSewingCharise

Hi Friends!
One of the reasons I have been blogging so infrequently is because I have been doing lots of Secret Sewing.  I will be busy with my secret project until Mid November.

I will be sharing sneak peeks along the way and you can find the pictures on IG with the hashtag #SecretSewingCharise.
You can also see my progress here on the blog.

The project I'm currently working on has one of my favorite color combos - pink and yellow.
The sweet bird fabric is an older Minny Muu print from Lecien.  You can find some newer Minny Muu prints at Pink Castle fabrics [HERE] and Fat Quarter Shop [HERE]
The strawberry print is from Yuwa and is also an older print but you can find similar strawberry prints [HERE] 

The Petal nesting bowl pattern can be found [HERE]

Happy Sewing!


Oldies but Goodies ~ Apple and Pear Pattern

I can't believe it has been over three weeks since I last posted!
I've been working on a project that I cannot share now ; )
as well as overseeing a house remodel.

Both are coming along nicely and I cannot wait to share them with you!

I thought this would be a good time to share some of my favorite patterns.  
The apple and pear pattern is a perfect Autumn make and today is the first day of Fall!

This pattern has lots of possibilities - coasters, tote bag, pillow to name a few.
The apple measures 4" wide x 4 3/8" tall
The pear measures 3 1/4"" wide x 5 3/8" tall

The pattern is free and you can find it [HERE]

If you'd like to make the round hot pad you can find the tutorial [HERE] 

I also have a pattern for a smaller apple which measures about 3" tall x 2 5/8" wide 

I made this fun hot pad with the apple pattern.

As well as these cute little pouches.

Isn't it fun as a coaster?

You can find the mini apple pattern [HERE]

Happy Sewing and Happy First day of Fall!
