Tutorial – Lavender Sachet Plushies

Urban Threadster Tabatha from Bending Pins shared an adorable tutorial over on Quilt Story.

She made these little lavendar sachets using various UT designs, like the little bunny, gingerbread man, gnome and fox. These great little sachets can be adapted for any season, but they would be especially great for the holidays!

Check out the tutorial here.

Craftster Find – Octopus of DOOM!!

Check out this awesome double hoop duel! I am so in love with all of this… the appliqué bursting from the hoop, the nomming of the pirates, the color transitions on the fabric (the color of the deep and the lighter of the ocean…wowza)

…and check out the ship!

Yo Ho Ho Ho...

That is some amazingly clean stitching on our little pirate ship.  In case you’re wondering how on earth she got the octopus, the hoops, the stitching even the standing tentacles to work together, he’s a little explanation from the post:

1) I used the wonderful tutorial by onegroovyday for the backs doing the octopus head first and half of the ship then stitching the tentacles on and finishing the ship’s background.  There was a lot of flailing around… and many many pin pricks.  But I’m clumsy like that. 2) I wove some wire into the tentacles to keep them up.

...a pirate's life for-AAGHHH!

Love it. Check out more detail shots and background on her post.

Spring Is Here!

Egg cozys

Check out these super cute egg cozies from Ganz und Garn! Such cute little appliqués and bright fabrics.

Ahh… spring is here!

Egg cozy

This is also quite a learning experience for me, as I had no idea eggs needed cozies. I suppose everything needs to feel cozy now and then.
