The Scout Tee (x2)

Over the past couple weekends, I had some time to work on a sewing project– hooray! I was inspired by the Sorbetto tanks I kept seeing around the internet and bought a bunch of dottie bias tape at Fancy Tiger. When I got home, though, I realized that I really wanted sleeves, and no pleat, [...]

Signs of Craft (+ A Sale!)

Lately I’ve been getting back into sewing and embroidery. I still get hung up on crochet, thinking I need to write a pattern if I want to start something, since I did that for so long, so I’m keeping my projects simple for now.

Last weekend I made a rope/clothesline basket for our bathroom. You can [...]

Crafty Weekend

I feel like we’re finally starting to settle in here, and I’ve even had some time to make “just for fun” stuff–wahoo! It’s hard to say no to design work but the reality is that I don’t have a ton of time for it and it’s really nice to just take the time to make [...]

Hello Sewing, My Old Friend

We’ve been steadily working to get our new place in order, because I start work this week and I know once I’m busy I won’t have time to care as much about making it nice. We planned to install wooden blinds on all four kitchen windows but due to the wonders of mis-measuring and ikea’s [...]

The Best Part: Cool Stuff You Made

The biggest thrill that I get as a crochet designer/ author is seeing people’s projects when they take the time to make one of my patterns. I love to see what y’all come up with, it’s so inspiring! When  you add your projects to ravelry, I can see the ones made with my patterns in [...]

Petite Purls!!

Last week while I was in Denver filming some online classes (more on that later), something very exciting happened! The Spring issue of Petite Purls went live, with my newest crochet design on the cover!

If you’re not a knitter, you might not be familiar with Petite Purls, but it’s the brainchild of two moms, Brandy [...]

Blog Book Tour: Modern Log Cabin Quilting

I first met Susan Beal through the internet, back in the early 2000s. I sometimes miss that time–the internet was small and a whole lot of sharing went on in a seemingly private space. So much has changed since then! We met in person at a get-together in Brooklyn, and I bought a pretty necklace [...]

Oldie but Goodie Turkey Day Crafts

Holy cow, I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is this week! I have a lot on my plate at the moment, in t he non-food department, but I wanted to pop in and share a couple of my previous tutorials that are still as fresh as ever.

Crocheters, dig through your scraps and whip up some of [...]

Take Along Sewing Kit

The Fall 2010 Issue of Interweave Stitch is out!  This is easily one of my favorite sewing magazines because of the modern, fresh feel of both projects and fabrics.  I contributed one project, a Take-Along Sewing Kit, for the One-Yard Gifts story.  I used an adorable fruit+flower corduroy gem that I found hiding out at [...]
