    file_007-1

    This is a simple DIY card holder tutorial by Lucy in Manchester, UK. Lucy teaches sewing and quilting classes and blogs under Charm About You. You can fit at least 3 or 4 cards in each pocket. You can use thread that is the same color as your fabric or leather, or you can use a contrasting color to make the stitching pop. This project only requires 3 cuts! You will need 1 piece of felt, (available on the third floor of our brick-and-mortar store) medium weight fabric or leather (available on the fourth floor of our brick-and-mortar store) that is 8" x 3" and 2 pieces that are 3" x 3 1/4". You have the option of creating a hole on each side to make it easier to slip your cards in and out or taking the easier route and not creating holes. For the complete project, please visit Lucy's tutorial here.

    3630280_orig

    Along the lines of our recent reversible infinity scarf tutorial by our guest blogger NicoleAtHome, we bring you this cowl scarf by Melanie from The Littlest Studio. Melanie's blog was rated one of the top blogs by AllFreeSewing and CraftGossip. This project is easy to make, can be completed in about 10 minutes, and is the perfect quick winter project. She suggests that you use plaid fabric and minky fleece, (available on the fourth floor at Britex Fabrics) or any warm fuzzy fabric, but you can really use any kind of fabric. Just be sure to remember to use stretch stitches instead of straight stitches if you choose a fabric that stretches. You will need 1/4 yard of fabric that is at least 32" wide for the outer layer, 1/4 yard of fabric that is at least 32" wide for the inner layer and thread.

    make-it-with-wool-2017
    Hello!  Just wanted to share the results of Meighan's Make It With Wool entry for Ohio.  She won 1st in the adult division for the state of Ohio and ended up 2nd runner-up nationally in the adult division.  Being the youngest entrant in that division I think she held her own pretty well... but, hey, I am her mom so I might be a tad bit biased lol!  The beautiful blue crepe in the dress is from our favorite store, BRITEX!!!:-)  Thanks again for always being so willing to help out..especially at crunch time!. I hope that you enjoy the photo!

    Sincerely,
    Melinda Stevens
