We have about 2 weeks until we leave for our huge road trip so my head is SPINNING! If you're waiting on an email response for me about something non-urgent (I try to respond to time sensitive stuff ASAP!) thanks for your patience. There are four projects that *have* to be done before I leave but I can only share one of them so I'll need to work on some round-ups to mix in there -- any requests just hit reply! Otherwise I'll dig into the 150+ drafts I have started when I run across cool stuff on different topics :)
I packed up an older machine that was gifted to me and gave it to one of my sewing 101 students this week and it was so much fun! I packed a few of all the essentials and a bunch of scraps; she really seemed to enjoy sewing and I hope I sparked a larger interest for her. We made a poster showing all the projects we'd worked on this semester and I'm so glad I taught the class. I'm not sure if I'll share any of the patterns we worked on, on the blog, maybe the felt flower bracelets? They were so fun!
I hope you have some time to sew this week!

I've shared tips for sewing with kids, projects for sewing with kids, and now I have a list of the cutest sewing kits! These are perfect if you have a grandchild, niece, nephew who is interested in sewing but you can't teach them in person. They come with all the supplies & instructions in one shot and I had so much fun picking them out- go see more here.
From the archives: This post is not full of glossy, beautiful craft room pictures! It is from my old craft dungeon, and focusing more on cheap, functional storage over pretty, coordinating boxes. Come see how I organized fabric scraps in my last house and get tips for how to organize your own!
Reader make: Barbara sent me the sweetest photo, she sewed this for her grandson!! She added a gusset and a zipper to make it a removable cover, which is brilliant. See the free pattern here, and remember the link & password for files is at the top of every newsletter.
