How to Sew an Envelope Clutch (10 minutes or less!)

Posted by Honor on Friday, January 4, 2013, In : Accessories 
My post yesterday (diy splatter refashion) was an easy refashion of this must know diy. Enjoy!

Couldn't get any simpler. These handy little pouches can be used for so many things. Think make up bag, ipad/kindle travel case, diaper pouch, gift bag, journal cover.... really anything! You can also get really creative with your choice of fabric. Just make sure to choose one that has some weight and stiffness to it otherwise you will have one floppy mess.

In case you missed it this was my version of...

Sewing Series: Girls A Line Dress

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, November 13, 2012, In : Clothing 

Here is the third installment of my ' ease back into sewing like how you gingerly dip into a jacuzzi' sewing series. This is my version of an A line dress, basically the same but with a tweak here and there. This one is a little more complicated than the easy 5 minute flouncy skirt and bubble skirt... but not by that much.

The A line dress is another one of those little things that every crafter should know. It seems more complicated than it actually is. In fact all of the sewing projects that...

Sewing Series: 5 Minute Little Girl's Bubble Skirt

Posted by Honor on Monday, November 12, 2012, In : Clothing 
Continuing on with my mini sewing series. A few days ago I showed you how to make a Flouncy Skirt. Today I show you my foray into bubbledom. Which is basically the same as the flouncy skirt, just with one tweak. It is an easy tweak so don't get your knickers in a knot. Not one of my sewing tuts are difficult. I want to encourage myself (and you!) to sew more, not less by biting off more than I can chew, or stitch :)

 Don't you think bubble shape is so darn cute and perfect for a little girl t...

Sewing Series: DIY 5 Minute Little Girl Skirt

Posted by Honor on Saturday, November 10, 2012, In : Clothing 

I used to sew a ton. I was a serging and stitching maniac. Any and everything from million layer tulle tutus (yes, an adult can wear a tutu... think Carrie from SATH), to maxi dresses and even a tank top or two. Jersey was my favorite, but man o man is it a finicky fabric to work with! Definitely not for beginners.

 It has been a few years since I broke out the sewing machine for a 'serious' sewing project so I thought I would ease myself back in. As in I will stitch up a few items for Lou... ...

DIY Sewn Envelopes

Posted by Honor on Monday, September 10, 2012, In : Party Decorations 
   These are companions to my DIY Fabric & Paper Scrap Sewn Cards... they are best buds. So if you do one I recommend doing the other.

Great diy right? Perfect for those left over pages of scrapbooking paper. The ones that don't really go with any of the layouts/crafts you are doing, but are so pretty that you want to show them off...

But here are a couple of quick pointers.

*Make sure to use contrasting thread so it really stands out... o...

DIY Fabric & Paper Stitched Cards (Tips For Sewing On Paper)

Posted by Honor on Thursday, September 6, 2012, In : Party Decorations 

   There really is nothing like a handmade card. Such a special little treat when you open up an envelope and you see this little piece of crafty heaven. Someone made it with their own two hands. It is like getting a chunk of the love chocolate bar via the post.
And giving a handmade card?

Oh it is so nice to be nice :)

Sometimes you just want the person to feel how special they are to you.

   I plan on sending some fall valentines to my sweethearts who are spread out across the US. Here are my ...
