Change the Presser Foot

Sometimes I think that I’m not too smart. I struggle along with something when I have the tool available to make the task easier. Sometimes, it’s as easy as changing the presser foot!

And actually, I think that is true in a lot of areas, not just sewing. Do you ever trudge forward with something. Something that isn’t going well, something that isn’t turning out like it was supposed to? I’m not suggesting that you abandon that “thing” (whether it be a sewing project, job, family member…whatever), but maybe examine it and see if you could make a minor change. Little changes CAN make a big difference.

Here is another sewing tip. Use patterns! (If you’re making items to sell, check out the copyright laws to make sure you know what you can and cannot sell.)

I almost never sew with patterns. It’s really is odd, I think. How much easier would my life be if I just used a pattern. Let someone else figure out all the particulars! So, I have ordered several patterns for my fabric store. They are up on eBay and some of them are in my Etsy store. (By the way, links are on the left hand side of the screen.) I’m working on getting them all on my website. Anyway, I will admit that while ordering these, I added some extras for myself. I’m quite excited about many of the patterns….well ok, you got me…I’m excited about all of them!

Haley will be getting an apron from this book. I’m going to make it using Laminated Michael Miller Fabric. (yep…it’s on my website.) If there is one little girl that needs a wipe-able apron, it is Haley! Of course, I doubt I’ll be able to stop with one! (pst…I also have adult apron patterns!)

Well, how can you resist these? Especially with some really fun fabric!

Hello, Christmas gifts, anyone? How perfect, I must say! Maybe if I start now, I can actually get them made before Christmas!

Speaking of Christmas…one of my reps is coming next week so I can order Christmas fabric. Yep! Things move fast in this fabric world. Let me tell you, there are some WAY cute Christmas fabrics coming out this year.
