Just Sew!

I had a question about a wall hanging pattern I had in a local quilt shop and realized I had never uploaded it to my Craftsy shop! So now it is being uploaded and if you are interested in an easy, but showy, wall hanging for your sewing room the pattern is available!
On the sample above, I used buttons from my grandmother's button jar. The pins have little seed beads so they look like real pins! 
The size is 28" x 21 1/2" and the pattern is available for download at $8.99. ($12 plus shipping for a paper pattern.)
You can use my easy applique method (link to tutorial here) to hand applique or just sew it down by machine. 
Revisiting patterns I designed a few years ago gives me a renewed excitement to get started again! We are getting closer than ever to finishing the new sewing room. I can hear my husband in the background installing my cabinets! 
 The board in the middle of the room is to protect the floor from scuffing while I put together the cubicle cabinets. The cabinets in the background do not have their drawers in and are being installed against that wall. Baseboards are not installed yet. 
In the top photo, you can see the top of a large cabinet sitting out. We will have to have someone come and help install that over it's base. It's too heavy for me! 
I bought 13 ClosetMaid cubicle cabinets to put my fabric in.

I will have them stacked and anchored to the wall. I will tell you more about that when we finish. (I wish I were a ClosetMaid affiliate!
Until next time!

  1. Oh, Linda, I'm drooling, and green with envy. What a wonderful space that will be, to create in and enjoy!

  2. I am so glad that you are up and about a bit. Your studio is magnificent and I cant wait to see it all outfitted and ready to go. I am SURE that you have planned and re-planned it many times while you were laid up!!!

  3. it will be so nice to see you in there creating, designing and HOME at is looking really nice Linda..

  4. I am so happy you are feeling better. Your sewing room is going to be stunning. I can't wait to see what you do with the two tables from the previous post. I think they will turn out great. Take care and don't overdo things.

  5. I bought several of those cabinets (or similar) but, had to take them back. The comic book boards that I wrap my fabric on were too large to fit in the cubbies. Unfortunately, I've filled all my bookcases with fabrics, and still have lots of fabric left, with no place to put it. Your room is much bigger than mine.

  6. Thanks for your sharing, it helps me a lot and I think I'll watch your post more.
