I don’t know if I’ve ever had so many friends and family hit by the flu in the same year; so far we are healthy but I just want to burrow down and stay inside until it’s warm out again! Drinking warm beverages is a wonderful way to slow down and rejuvenate, and it’s even better when paired with a hand sewing project! No sewing machine required, you’ll want to make this EPP hexagon coaster tutorial to rest your mug or teacup on. Curled up under a blanket, stitching and sipping, is a great way to practice self-care. If you know someone who is already sick, pull together a sweet little ‘get well’ basket with a new mug, Bigelow tea, and handmade coaster (there is a chance to win some tea, too, so scroll to the bottom and good luck)!

Easy Fabric Scrap Halloween Garland

To complement the simple Halloween banner I made last week, how about a super quick fabric scrap Halloween garland! It took me less than a hour to make this but I love how it turned out. I’m all about fast and easy holiday sewing – we just pulled out the handmade astronaut costume I made my son and it took me about the same amount of time as this. You could make this as long or as short as you’d like; I don’t have a fireplace mantel to display garlands on but it sure looks cute up on the wall. I can totally picture this in Christmas fabric, and Valentine’s Day too!

Between patchwork, english paper piecing, foundation paper piecing, embroidery, and felt accents, I think everyone will be able to find a tutorial that they just love!

I had so much fun sewing up these patterns – I tested 4 different free pincushion sewing patterns and am sharing my thoughts on each one! Pincushions are the best; they sew up pretty quickly, they are useful, they make great gifts, and almost always use up scraps.
