I found a great product for organizing my craft room, and I had to share with you! I think other sewing bloggers have used these before, but I thought it would be a good time to remind my readers that these exist 🙂
Remember the Falling Leaves table runner from a few weeks ago? Well, I had some fabric leftover, and thought it would be perfect for coordinating coasters! These would make perfect housewarming or Christmas gifts, and they’re super quick to stitch up.
Also- a good way to practice my binding technique 🙂
Charm Pack or Scrap Fabric
Backing: Leftover backing from my table runner
Binding: I used the same as the backing because I liked the plaid print
Who doesn’t love a flannel plaid shirt in the fall?? Well, I didn’t really plan on making a flannel shirt, but it’s really cute and super cozy! Once I got the fit right on this Laurel Top, I was obsessed.
Slouchy Tees are my favorite 🙂 Combine them with leggings, fuzzy slippers, cozy quilts, coffee, and Gilmore Girls and you have THE PERFECT SATURDAY.
I had to test out this FREE Tessuti Fabrics pattern, so I chose a poly/lycra blend from Fabric.com. The fabric is super soft, but usually polyester pills. I’ll have to give you a wear & tear update later. And I’ll probably make the next one in stripes… because stripes are always better! View Post
I’m pretty excited to get sewing a few fall trends. Of course, when I’m sewing I try to make classic pieces that will last for years. But I have seen a few fall trends that I hope stick around for a long time…..
A Few Trends
Ruffle Sleeve: These seem to be everywhere and I love them!
I’m pretty sure this one is my favorite, too. It’s SO PRETTY. A few years ago I bought an all-lace sweatshirt from Forever21 that I received a million compliments on (some people at my luxury fashion job asked if it was one of ours haha), so I wanted to add more dressed-up sweatshirts to my collection.

For this week’s Flashback Friday – a few cross stitch pillows I made when I was maybe 8-10 years old. I made the little scarecrow pillow and the 4-leaf pattern. My sister made the two pillows in the back – of course she made the cat pillow.
These are so adorable, my mom keeps them displayed in a bowl during fall at her house. My mom cross-stitched a lot when we were young, and every now and then we made something, too!
These little pillows are basically the frame for the cross- stitch. I definitely cut the square too small when I was little… oops
Obsessed with these little guys! I wish I could find the patterns for these little guys and share with you, but you’re all pretty smart and I think you could figure it out!
