Freebie Friday! Calcifer Plush

Make this cute little Calcifer plush on the blog today! So sweet you might just give him your heart ^0^

I’m bringing back the Ghibli fanart! I’ve been wanting to make something Howl’s Moving Castle themed for a while, and I finally decided to take action after reading the original bookand rewatching the Ghibli film. It was a real treat doing that, because I thought the book really complemented the movie. They had their differences, but they worked together in ways that made them both better, which…

Freebie Friday! Furoshiki Casserole Carrier

Have a lot of odd-shaped pans you bring to pot lucks? Maybe you need a furoshiki casserole carrier like me! Get the free pattern here!

The patchwork is back again! Just as I warned :B As for this particular project, well, I’ve been in denial about it, but I finally admitted that I need a casserole carrier. The problem was I have a few options to carry food and pans to friends’ homes, an insulated grocery bag, a few totes, etc., but none of them actually worked! I have kind of a ragtag collection of pans, some larger than 9” x…

Freebie Friday! Ruffled Pouch Pattern

New free sewing pattern today! Make a cute little pouch with a ruffled bottom!

If you’ve been to this blog more than a few times you might already know the main reason why I post all these free tutorials; I’m desperately trying to bring down my fabric stash! Earlier in 2013 I tackled my stash of heavyweight fabrics, and now I’ve moved onto my quilting cottons. Which means only one thing: patchwork! So a lot of the projects I have planned to post over the next few months…

Oh, yes :D After about 8 months of semi-hiatus, I’m finally back with more updates to the site! That is, back doing the thing that started me blogging in the first place: using up my scraps! In January of 2013 I realized my stash of fabrics weren’t doing me any favors and I finally needed to start chipping away at them, so I’ve been making little projects here and there…
