Take pictures and write a post on your blog (linking HERE to the Sewing Bee) of what it is that you are currently working on in your sewing space… whether it be hand or machine stitching.
Like minded chicas…the sharing of patterns and progress of sewing.
To inspire ourselves to keep stitching.
What could be better than that?

On the hoop/ sewing table~ Hats, hats, and more hats.
Several people have asked me for a tutorial for the hats that I showed in last weeks, and so here goes...
Start with a piece of normal printing paper. size 8 X 11.
From each of the bottom corners cut a direct line to the center of the top of the paper to form a triangle.
Place this triangle template on top of a shirt at the bottom hem. Cut out through both the front and back layers of the shirt. By using the hem of the bottom of the shirt, you will not need to hem the bottom of the hat.
Cut out a decorative square or rectangle piece of printed cotton fabric with pinking shears. Place it on top of the front of the hat at the bottom center right above the hem.
Stitch the applique onto the hat with whatever stitch you like.
Now lay the two halves of the hat side by side.
Place the two halves on top of each other right sides facing together and pin the longer outer edges.
Trim off any excess fabric and turn the hat right side out.
And make a tiny knot at the top.
They really do sew up quickly and make for awesome gifts to new little ones.
Oh Yea, and there is a Flickr Group too!
AND! Take a button if you like.
Just copy and paste an image from below onto your side bar or into your post. (The link is already linked in the image.)
THESE images for the buttons have been updated with links to the new space.
