"This is really an adorable onesie!  My great-niece was born just this past December.  Could you possibly tell me how to make this for a 4-9 month infant?"

Fabric Bowl Covers Make Great Gifts

Posted on October 14, 2018 at 8:00am 0 Comments

Just like Grandma (or Great-Grandma) used daily, SAVE $ and be ‘Green’ by using act RE-Using these Fabric Bowl Covers instead of plastic or foil.  When they get dirty just throw into the wash (or wipe off  if you fuse vinyl to the fabric).  

This is a great Beginning Sewing Project and makes a super Gift!

Toddler Fleece Appliqued Butterfly Jacket

Posted on October 8, 2018 at 6:00pm 0 Comments

Sewing for a granddaughter is a special delight.  This toddler  has SO many clothes, that I am making only a few and very special ones.  This polar fleece jacket was quite delightful to design and create.  Even though a big machine with embroidery capability sits in my sewing studio, I honestly am more comfortable with the traditional method of applique and I KNOW I enjoyed 'painting with my machine' and being the DRIVER rather than letting the computer part of an embroidery machine do the…

Londa, you seem to know a bunch about sewing, and I need expert advice! I'm trying to see a comforter and the problem comes in when attaching the thick braided cording. I can't get it close enough to just show the cord on the right side. I have pictures of it on my page. Can you help me??

Hi

Have just watched the You Tube video you did on trying Texture Magic as I have been researching it to do an article on it in the Bags Channel.  I went and looked on your website to see if there were any examples of you using it for collars etc but just found the product itself.  I am posting the article this Friday and would love to add pictures if you have any.

Not exactly given the reins over. My daughter thought she would like to try and create a new Sew Whats New and did so with my blessing. Everything is her work and ideas. I visit to see what's new.

Hi Londa, it's Mary from the "old" Sew Whats New. Your picture is great, and a second wedding gown too. What an undertaking. I remember the lovely job you did on the first one.
