"Stitch and Bitch"

Yesterday, I invited a group of friends over for a sewing workshop. Sue and Joan can make just about anything while Sheila and I are still pretty green.
We decided to keep the first project simple and make some pillowcases.
I found this pretty flannel peony print by free-spirit fabrics. LOVE the orange and lime combination. These will look perfect with my new citrus sheets.
Sheila was lucky enough to get some great personal instruction from Sue and made the green ones all wrapped and ready to impress her husband with (he can sew and teased her that she'd have a hard time). She even added a double trim to hers. This was her first time at a sewing machine since she was 8? (Well I guess she showed him!)
Next on the list........aprons and duvets.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful day Karin! How about valances and matching pillows.... I love doing those when I want to change out a room....And super easy..... I hope that your friend caught her husband's face on camera when she showed up with her lovely work!! :)

  2. what a great idea.. sounds like you have lots of fun 'girl bonding ' sessions over there!!

    I wanna make pretty pillowcases all wrapped up with ribbon !!
    LOVE the citrus and lime combo too!
    Move over Martha!!
