I started out as so many of us did, hand stitching scraps into doll clothes. Later, my father encouraged me by promising that if I made clothes on my mom's idle Singer, that he would buy me materials for one project at a time. When it was finished, I could get another. (Clearly that lesson of finishing before starting another never really took!) I love sewing, designing, handwork, pattern making... and I especially love that my daughter MollyKate is my website partner, Official Tester and inspiration; my granddaughter is a "nouveau sewist"; and that I am blessed with creative, great friends in our Sew Fun Club and new friends through Craftsy.View all patterns by designer (11) »
Quick and cute - and great holiday accessory or gifts! These Bowl Hotpads protect your fingers and your tables from hot bowls - you could even store one between your bowls to protect them from chipping. We love to present small gifts in one with a bow! And they are a fun way to dress up your place settings for a special holiday with a coordinating napkin. Make a large one from Halloween fabric to hold your treats - add a ribbon! Gift your friends at Christmas with soup-mix-in-a-jar and a cute bowl inside its own hotpad giftwrap! Make two for the wedding couple holding two of their china bowls.... post your creations and inspire us all! Pattern includes very easy way to adjust the pattern to fit any bowl - but watch out! You'll start turning any 10" or bigger scrap into another Bowl Hotpad! Happy Sewing from the wild wimin'.
