Hi friends, It’s been a while that I drew something with my sewing machine. So I drew this sewing tray and finished as a scrappy version of my Little Friend zip pouch. I like how it came out although I kind of regret that I used gray thread instead of black and that scissor looks too big….well, I hope I will do better next time.  😀 Oh, and I am very happy that my Someday Graphic Tan fabric goes well with linen! I hope you agree with me. *wink* You can find my downloadable PDF pattern on my shop SewingIllustration.com.          Read More →

I have loved Sedef ‘s first book Quilt Petite and enjoyed making a project. When she told me that she was writing her second book, I couldn’t wait to put my hands on! What a joy waiting for something good! My first choice was the Armchair Caddy on the cover but I realized that I don’t have a right sized-couch that fits. darn it! So this table topper was my second choice and I am glad I changed my plan. I was inspired by the Scallop Trivet in the book. Sedef showed very clever instruction and it is quite a good size.

Hello friends, I would like to share various project ideas that you can create using motifs from my book DIARY IN STITCHES.   This is the first sewing machine cover and I changed the design for the book.
