Beach Ball Dresden Quilt Tutorial With Special Guests

They say less is more, but what if we’re talking about ice cream? Because in my book, a double scoop outscores a single scoop every day of the week. And after watching this week’s new tutorial, I think you’ll agree: a Double Wide Dresden Ruler is much more fun than a single! This week Barb and Mary of Me & My Sister Designs are in the studio with Jenny to whip up some dresden magic. Click HERE to learn how to use their double wide template to make a beautiful Beach Ball Dresden Quilt!

Teddy Bear Clothing Patterns?

Teddy bear needs some new clothes. He's 17 inches and can fit into most Build a Bear clothes. I'd prefer patterns that use woven fabric over knit fabric as I'm not feeling adventurous and am way more comfortable with woven fabric. I realize I could buy them, but I thought it might be fun to try and make some. submitted by /u/traveltheworld321 [link] [comments]

Rustic Elegance Canning Jar Cozy Set

"There is something about fall decor that makes my heart happy. I don't know if it's the rich earthy hues, or how cozy everything looks in the autumn sunlight, but it fills a special place in me that nothing else can. This past week Fall arrived at my place, and between the just-changing leaves, and the smell of frost in the air, I felt the need to crochet something that would fit the mood. These canning jar cozies combine the rustic farmhouse feel of hemp with the elegance of lace for a unique home decor piece that you can make in an hour or so.

Advice needed for novice- Attaching drilled Plastic to fabric

Hi there, I am the owner of a small startup business making heat welded bicycle bags. I have spent the last few months prototyping and honing in my skills in the heat-welding area to make my bags. My bags must use a Reel-Based Closure by design. This is where the trouble starts. Although I am lucky enough to not have to pick up a needle and thread for the whole rest of the bag, the plastic reel housing must be stitched onto the bag, and there isn't really a way around it that I can see. Does anybody know how you might attach such a thing? I took it to a local outdoor gear repairer, and she was about as befuddled as I am, so I'm just not sure how to move forward with it. I believe her main worry is that there just isn't really enough room to get in there and sew it using her machine. I'd love to hear ANY ideas anyone has. Thanks! Additional photos: Front and back side of the part needing to be attached, prior to holes being drilled through it. I am working on a jig..

Ribbons And Grace “Wristers” Crochet Cuffs

"These wrist cuffs have a Victorian feel that will dress up a variety of outfits! I have been excited to try "wristers" for a while, and have been looking for the perfect opportunity to make a set. Several of you have mentioned wanting a pair of fingerless gloves to go with the Ribbons and Grace Boot cuffs, and Neck warmer, but due to the way the pattern spirals, a straight thumb hole would have been somewhat tricky to pull off. These cuffs solve that problem nicely since they lack a thumb hole, but still cover your hand nicely."

Pattern Review: Marfy 4001 A-line Skirt

Here is a new twist on an A-line skirt.

Primrose And Proper Slouch Hat (Free)

"The Primrose and Proper slouch hat pattern is stylish and versatile, and I've included notes on how to make this for everyone from toddlers to adults! I've added some extra embellishments (of course--it wouldn't be my design if it didn't!), such as the ruffle that runs along the side of the hat, and an optional clip on flower. However, if you are not a fan of extra ruffles, there are notes that tell you how to work the pattern differently. Because this is made with worsted weight yarn, it works up within several hours and is good for those who are comfortable with "easy" level patterns, but want to stretch their skills a little further."

Great Gifts for Sewing on the Go

Tools for those who sew while traveling

Advice, I want a tailormade blouse, but ++

I want to make it easier on the tailor. I have a green blouse that I love! I would like one in ivory. I have my moms old silk blouse that is 2-3 sizes bigger. Can I give the tailor my moms blouse to shape it like my favorite green blouse. OR would it be easier just to buy the ivory fabric and have them make it from scratch? I just want to make it the easiest and also for the best results from tailor submitted by /u/roxyj23 [link] [comments]

The Chunky Cowl

"Theres something cozy about the way a knit cowl naturally curls up around the edges.I designed a crochet pattern that mimics the same look. The edges slightly curl up to create a squishy cowl that youll want to wear when the temperatures start falling. The ridges give the cowl the perfect drape so it lays right every time you wear it. No need to style this scarf. In this chunky crochet scarf pattern, well use one simple stitch, the slip stitch. Switching back and forth between the front and back loops creates those ridges."
