All of this snow has me looking forward to warm weather and bright colours.  I've been living in a neutral world and I want to play around with some colourful shades!!

If you are looking for a quick and easy project, this infinity scarf is for you! It can be made in about 10 minutes and it's a great way to spruce up your wardrobe. I used a stretch lace but this tutorial is fine for any fabric.

Happy Sewing!

Once you get the hang of making these zippered bags you won't be able to resist recreating these a hundred times! The creative possibilities are practically endless. 
I used a metallic linen for the outside of the bag, which helps amp up the glam. Adding the interfacing to the outer fabric helps give this bag some stability. You can also use a fun print or a canvas for some other options :) Also try adding a contrasting lining for some extra style points. 

Happy Sewing!

Headbands are one of those instant gratification projects. You spend ten minutes sewing and suddenly you have a Pinterest worthy accessories on your head! 
This project is also fantastic for using up any little pieces of stretch fabric that you may have lying around. I used neutral shades but why not use a bright floral print to add to you summer wardrobe or LACE!! OK I wish I had included a lace version now. Well maybe next time, and by next time I mean I'm going to go make one right now. . .  

Anyhoo happy sewing!

Hey Everyone! 
In case you haven't noticed, ponchos and capes are totally making a style comeback. I find them sooooo comfortable to wear. I think this Poncho would look amazing in a really thick sweater knit! Perfect for a winter coat alternative. 

I made this version with a Hi-Lo detail which is completely optional! 

I hope you enjoy this Tutorial
