A heartfelt thank you to each of you for hanging in there with us...even though we didn't get much sewing done. I hope you have a Happy and safe New Year! NEW DAY, NEW WAY! :-)

Roonie Ranching: Piped Basket -- Sewing Tutorial

Hello everyone. I'm not a "holiday sewer" in the sense that many sew more and/or sew specific items for the holidays. I just try and sew what I can when I can (and hope to get something in very soon) :-).

I saw this on Sew She Can's website. Love the instructions!

Roonie Ranching: Piped Basket -- Sewing Tutorial: This is a padded fabric basket just begging to be made for a teacher, neighbor, or even your East German friend who has a birthday tomor...

Did you get a chance?

Just a quickie here: Did anyone get a chance to take advantage of the craftsy sale last week? I did, however, I only grabbed three classes (enough for me). Last year (which was my first Black Friday sale participation with them), I purchased about six classes.

Here's what I got this time:

1) Sewing Designer Details with Simplicity
2) Big Techniques from Small Scraps
3) Strip Your Stash

Now, before ordering anything from Craftsy, I watch the demo video, read the reviews, read the ratings, read the required materials (making sure I either have all of them OR have to purchase as few as possible--only because I'm trying to use what I have.

How about you? :-)
