Fabric, a universal language

27 Mar 2013


Hello from Germany...Bret and I are in Cologne for the H&H show. Which is similar to International Quilt market, but different in that there are so many yarn, craft and hobby exhibitors here as well.   The photo above was taken from our hotel window. Across the Rhine river is the Dome Cathedral, from what I understand it is the tallest cathedral in all of Germany.   The weather has been unseasonably cold, but we enjoyed the warmth of good company.  These ladies, shown with Amanda from The Quilted Fish, have their own fabric store in Germany and they had ... ...read more

Hanging Car Pockets Sewing Tutorial

I have a little boy.  Which also means I have little cars scattered around the bedroom floor.  I figured out a way to both organize the cars and keep them off the floor: Hanging Car Pockets.  These pockets are awesome because it hangs inside his closet door and he actually keeps his car in it.  {I think he is just happy that I sewed something for him instead of the girls.}  I am just happy the cars are off the floor so I don’t step on them anymore. :)  Want to make one?  I created a tutorial just for you ... ...read more

  Hi RBD! I'm Nikkala from The Crafting Chicks and I'm so excited to show how I gave my kitchen window a make over in 20 minutes and for $5! We've painted our kitchen cabinets, the walls, and replaced the light above the sink but something was still missing in here. That something happens to be the Serenata peacock fabric. I love the entire line, but this particular fabric makes my heart sing (in fact I had a hard time deciding which room to use it in, and have restrained myself to only using it in 2 rooms ... ...read more
