It’s time for another blog tour! Hope you’ll join us sewing a few goodies to gift or wear during the most wonderful time of the year. As always, share what you make with us on Facebook and Instagram. We love seeing what you are up to!
Rachel Hodges kicks off our Holiday blog tour with a review of the Patricia Tunic. Here she is modeling her Patricia Tunic in the fabulous Sophia in green fabric from the new Hotel Frederiksted line. Rachel has sewed this beauty numerous times and worn them all over the world. It’s the go to pattern she uses for herself. Read about why she loves the Patricia Tunic on her blog – Mrs. Podge.
Next up on Wednesday, November 17 is Anna’s Heirloom Boutique and a Gabriella Fae with stunning embroidery! You won’t want to miss it.
How do you like that? Fabrics misbehaving..acting like very expensive fabric and giving the same intense rich feel at $10.00……Good thing quilting cottons are a secret. Seriously..why pay more!!!! I’ll take $80.00 over $800.00 any day!!! Christy Bennett with her ruffles and frills and her etsy shop filled with all things Drapery is the best friend a girl could have cause she gets it!! She does rooms professionally and I’m sure she’d do them virtually!! Talk to her! Get that Modern Romantic feel the way only Christy can!! Love you girl!!

Itching to make something crafty, simple and fun for your home? Don’t have time to run out and shop for all of the pieces?! Well, then, you’re totally in luck.
All you’ve gotta do is download this nifty PDF (either by clicking here, or on the images below), cut out the shapes, string them together and VIOLA!
It’s seriously simple:
- click on the image below to download the PDF file. (It will download to your downloads folder)
- open and print pages on card stock or glossy photo paper for that extra oomph
- cut out banner pieces – either “free cut”, use a 2 1/8″ circle punch, or a flower punch if you have one! We love all shapes!
- assemble to your heart’s desire either by gluing circles back to back with yarn or bakery twine in-between using a hot glue gun (supervised by an adult), OR punch small holes on outer edges of circles and knot the bakery twine to each circle, ultimately connecting them all in a pretty pattern!
Hang this sweet garland in a doorway, above a mantel, in your window, or even gift it to that special someone.
Peep Jen’s Garlands! She used a flower punch, ribbon and yarn, making 2 separate garlands:

That’s just what it feels like this Holiday season. So much handmade love going around. This holiday season let’s keep it in America. It may be a tiny bit pricier but it’s keeping business in the USA and keeping business local. We employ about five people and that number can shoot to 15 during the Holidays, although it’s not a lot we feel good about it and know in time that number will grow. So here are a few things from our very own Judy Buchanan who creates hundreds of items to be sold around the world. She works diligently and long hours to keep her small business humming along. If that sounds like you, we are 100% behind you. We are such a big supporter and we know firsthand what it takes. She’s got everything for the season. Stockings, pillows, clothing, ties. She can help make it magical so please keep her in mind. Judy you are such the best!!
