"Sew Basic" Tutorials, and a Sneak Peak!

I've added a couple of tutorials to the "Sew Basic" section up top!

The first, on winding your bobbin, was added to the "threading your bobbin" tutorial, so you can see them there together!

And the second is just a few tips on starting your first sewing adventure!

I'm also working on a glossary of sewing lingo, and some fabric-cutting tips, so those will be up soon! yay!

And here is a sneak peak of a ruffly tutorial I have coming tomorrow for a guest post! I'm excited!

I heart girly stuff! :o)

  9. This is so great!! I need a reminder on ALL of this! Thanks, Disney!


  10. I love you blog and have an Award for you on mine if you would like to play along. Thanks.

  11. You are so cute, I am excited to try to make that skirt for my little girl. Btw- you should write a book! Seriously. Maybe one day you can and refer to your blog and make a book about sewing and crafting and loving God. :) I would buy it!

  12. So cute skirt=) Im trying to learn how to sew but it will take years to be as good as you=)

  13. The pictures of you and your daughter are delightful! And I like the simplicity of your instructions.

  14. i'm sitting at my sewing machine right now, staring at it, willing myself to learn it. So far I've spun the bobbin thread correctly! Yeah! Now I'm playing around with a few stitches. I think tomorrow I'll be brave and make a pillowcase (it was listed on the web under kids sewing crafts- yep thats where I'm starting, a 33 yr old making a pillowcase geared to an 8 year old)

  15. I know that a lot of people might think that this kind of post doesn't appeal to them b/c they are more advanced, but for us domestically challenged mommas, these are SO very appreciated! Thank you so so so much!
