Button Bracelet

While you are traveling and thinking of a project for the road, here is a fun idea! Grab your tin of buttons, some wide elastic, needle and thread. Sew on your favorite buttons to create a themed bracelet....match colors, make one playful, make one scrappy! The miles will go by quicker, and you will have a great gift!

Whistle While You Work : )

Best Press ia a nonaerosol, clear spray starch that is great for removing wrinkles! It also coats your fabric with a very light soil-resistant barrier without leaving any residues! And the scents....aaaahhhh...Citrus Grove, Caribbean Beach, Lavender, and unscented. We keep this product in our classroom and order refills by the gallon. Give it a try!

Sewing for Knitters

I needed to stitch some ribbon behind the handle of my knitted market bag. I surely did not want to take the time to hand stitch the ribbon securely. So, I thought Edgestitch Foot #10 is the answer! The blade of the foot nestled between the knitted rows perfectly. The ribbon was stitched on quickly and the stitches were neatly hidden in the yarns! I love my Bernina!

Creative Visions

It's that time of the year when you dream of gift ideas and hope you can remember that wonderful vision later. Why not create a journal for your ideas, clippings, fabric swatches, etc. so all your "thoughts" are in one place. I like this journal cover created to celebrate Sew Pink in October. Use this link for instructions and pictures!

Young Sewers

For children or even teenagers a glue stick can be a prized notion! Glue sticks will hold a pocket in place for topstitching, keep straight seams together temporarily, tack a hem down so pins don't stick fingers while the stitching is done, etc. And the best part is the glue washes right out of the project! Hmmm...a glue stick may be a great notion for ALL ages!
