One of my resolutions this year is to try projects that use up some of the fabric in my stash rather than shopping for new fabric… I know, it is a tough resolution… But, I am determined to keep it.
Some of the fabrics that are available today are so amazing, it is a shame to let even a small scrap go to waste, so that I why I thought smaller projects would be perfect and jewelry certainly fits the bill! Many of these projects are also a great way for non-sewists to be able to use some of the amazing fabrics that are available without having to sew. Continue reading →

During the last few months, my grandkids have been pretending to go ‘shopping’ when they are playing at my house. They will push the grocery cart to me and expect me to ring up all of the items and bag them up (I had a few small paper bags they would use)… That is what gave me the ideas of making these pint-sized grocery bags.
