Room To Create: My Craft Room Feature


This week I'm making up for lost time by sewing as much as I can & getting creative instead of writing tutorials, but I do have something new to share...I'm in the premiere issue of Room To Create Magazine!


This magazine is all about places to craft & create and shares the crafty spaces and studios of several designers, as well as some favorite craft bloggers.  When I was originally approached about being featured I didn't know I'd be among such big names.  I'm very honored to be included!  My room has got a lovely spread that shares some great photos and how I've maximized my small space with strategic organizing.


It also showcases the lovely EZ View and Helen Sewing desks I bought from The Original Scrapbox and then customized for a unique Sew Can Do look.  


I've had them for over a year now and things still look this neat and organized.  I can't recommend them enough!!


And if you think that a dream craft room is out of your budget's reach, requires more space than you have, or is only for serious craft bloggers, check out my post sharing how I got my Small Space Dream Craft Room to come true (it's easier than you think).  See how I started with my original $85 Craft Room post and follow-up Craft Room tour too.  



It may not happen overnight, but I'm proof that it can happen, no matter where you start!



You can find this issue of Room To Create at Target, Barnes and Noble, Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby and many grocery stores through the end of March.

Step into Spring with Terra's Treasures Manhattan Skirt Pattern


These Arctic-like temperatures are getting me seriously longing for spring.  I'm planning out more spring sewing projects to compensate for the current cold, so today I'm showcasing a great spring pattern from my lovely advertiser: Terra's Treasures, The Manhattan Skirt pattern.

The Manhattan Skirt paired with the Provincial Top.

This fun little skirt is cut on the bias for great movement and flow as it's worn.  It has some great details like being and option to do either a flap button or simple front. 

The Manhattan Skirt paired with the Main Street Tee.

The Manhattan Skirt pattern comes in sizes 6 months to 10 years, so it'll get lots of use as little girls grow.  Plus it's the ideal pattern for showcasing coordinating prints:


I've made several items with Terra's patterns over the years and they've always turned out looking beautiful and with a professional boutique quality you don't find in most PDF patterns.  You can even check out my reviews for each one for more details:


Terra's Treasures has patterns that:

     Large size ranges for each pattern so they can be used for years.

   Full color photos and easy to follow instructions suitable for beginners.

  - Great tips & tricks for sewing knits without a serger.   

 - Many that work for both boys & girls - no need to buy separate patterns!
