Check out the top 13 styles of camel coats, that are recommended by Elle this winter season, and while you're at it, get inspired and create your own camel coat! Visit our wool section online, and check out some of our camel fabrics. Start with our casual stretch camel coating, or our more luxurious wool and cashmere blend.

    bag-1-instructables

    Charming, practical, and quickly sewn, a market tote would make a great gift for just about everyone on your gift list! There are so many different grocery bag tutorials online, but this one by in sewing on Instructables is a fairly easy 13 step process. You can use an already existing bag as a pattern. Just cut off the seams at the top of the handles and the bottom seam. Then cut up each side so you have a pattern to use that looks not unlike a tank top shirt. Be sure to use two distinct different types of fabric to distinguish between the outside and the inside of the bag. We suggest cotton since it can be thrown in with your laundry. You can ready more here.
