The Big 5-0!

I just reached 50 followers, so I think a giveaway is in order... Watch this space in the next few days!

In the meantime, I wanted to share a few cool links I've stumbled across recently.

Dolly Donations for Haiti. Sarah started this wonderful program to send dolls to less fortunate children all around the world. Her current project will send 181 (or more!) dolls to children in Haiti through the Abundant Ground Foundation. Her site provides a free patterns and tutorials. She's shipping the dolls to Haiti on March 31, so if you want to help out, get cracking! I'm planning to make one or two and have my daughters pick out their clothes.

This tutorial for binding a quilt, by Amy at Diary of a Quilter is one of the best and clearest I've seen (and I've looked at a LOT of them!). I still haven't attempted it, because I'm a big fat chicken, but when I do, this is the tutorial I'll use!

Here's a nifty trick for making a pillowcase! I can't find a blog for the maker, but her YouTube name is scruplesanddrams.

So there's your random assortment of cool links for the day! Keep an eye out for the giveaway, it will appear in the next couple of days!


  1. Congrats on the followers! Are we sharing the same brain or did we read the same website . . . I just found that Dolly Donations blog the other day too. :)

  2. Thanks so much for the link to my Blog! That's so kind of you to help spread the world!

    Love all your bags on here, you must have one to match every outfit!

    Take care and Happy Sewing!
