Spring Blossoms Sew Along Starts Monday

I am excited to start the Spring Blossoms Sew Along.
It was created as a fun way to use the blocks in my book "Super Cute Paper Piecing", to make
a cheery Spring Time quilt.

To get you started, I created an E-book to help you pick fabrics for your paper pieced blocks.
You can find it on the Spring Blossoms Sew Along page [HERE]

Next week is all about getting prepared.  Printing patterns, selecting fabric and I even include a coloring page to help with the planning.

See you on Monday!

Happy Sewing


The Purse Clasp Book Sew Along ~ all together!

I have been a busy bee and have missed writing on the blog!
Today I wanted to share my clasp purses from the Purse Clasp Sew Along. 
The Sew Along was hosted by eliseandemelie.com and you can find more info HERE
Each and every Clasp Purse was such fun to make!

The first clasp purse I made was the strawberry clasp purse.  
The Strawberry pattern is from my book "Super Cute Paper Piecing".

The book comes with two clasps and this purse was made with one of them.
You can find the book and extra clasp hardware at Zakka Workshop on Etsy.

The second clasp purse was made using my nine patch coaster pattern you can find here.

The third clasp purse has my dresses paper piecing pattern for the focal point.
You can find the pattern for the dress in my book "Super Cute Paper Piecing".

The dress for the clasp purse was reduced to 45% of the original pattern!
The dress on the right is from the book and is 9" tall.

Last, but not least is the hexagon clasp purse.
It is so small that it fits in the palm of my hand!

Happy Sewing
