If you are planning to sew gifts for the holidays, time to start now if you haven't already! There are a variety of patterns and instructions available in my shop- all for a low $7! The pajama pants pattern is quick and easy to sew. Pick out a fun print that reflects the recipients interests and you could knock out several gifts in one weekend! For the musician on your list, a nice new Gig Bag would be much appreciated. Of course bags and purses are always welcome, and I've got several to suit your specific needs. Anyone who sews or crafts would love a chatelaine , so handy for holding tools etc. Don't forget, I've got a free tutorial here on this blog, just click on the tab at the top. This shopping bag style tote is great for filling with items to match each recipients hobbies and interests for custom gifts sure to please. Don't wait any longer to get started, that way you can enjoy the sewing as much as your friends and family will enjoy the gifts!

What could be easier?
Sit at home, eating leftover Thanksgiving meals,
Shopping on the computer. You can buy etsy patterns all weekend long, I'll be checking my shop frequently, so you can start sewing gifts without ever having to leave your house!
Sounds pretty good to me!
Then I edge stitched all the way around, closing the turning hole at the same time.

I love lace in all its delicate forms. I don't wear much, but I'd like to. I've just never thought of myself as a ruffles and lace gal. Here is an exhibit, "Lost in Lace" , that promises to be anything but traditional. Here is another photo . Of course I love lace wedding cakes . There are lots of types to choose from. Lace dresses currently in fashion (not really into see-through, but the red undies really make an impact!). Lacey looks for resort 2011. I think lace is always classic and in style to some degree, like the Little Black Dress. Come to think of it, I don't have a LBD but I do have a lacey Little Navy Dress. Haven't had the chance to wear it yet, but looking forward to it when I do!
