Linky Thursday

On a shoestring budget? Then this shoestring (and straw) necklace is sure to fit the bill – and trust me it looks far more fashionable that what it sounds.

Go green: bring your lunch to work or school with one of these reusable bags.

Turn a pleated skirt into a knockout dress.

Easter is right around the corner and beside sewing projects, I’m always on the lookout for fun food items too. This Baa Baa Black and White Sheep is sure to catch a few eyes.

Truly a gorgeous corsage – made from felt!

Have lots of rewards or credit cards that you need to keep track of? This quick and easy folding card wallet is a good way to store them.

I’m gearing up to teach a sewing class for beginners. I’m thinking that this pillowcase tutorial might be a fun way to start out – and perfect for adults or teens.

I’ll admit, I’m a bag nut – and there’s something about this Osoberry bag pattern that makes me want to sew it up. I think it’s the denim… I’m a sucker for denim.

As messy as it sounds, I’ve been thinking of making some chalkboard pillows. Speaking of chalk…. it you’re thinking of making your own this summer, I think this tutorial sounds fun, easy, and a perfect project with the kids.

A free bag project from Lazy Girl Designs.

Know a new sewer who’s scared to start making their own clothes? This tutorial for making a simple pair of kid’s pants is a good place to start!

This Sunburst Pillow is simple, but the ‘pintucks’ add a lot of interest.

The 5 minute skirt – the perfect project for sergers.
Need something to wear under a sweater, but don’t want to make a whole top? Then the Faux Cami is a perfect project!

    Had to laugh when is saw the chalkboard fabric on your list — one of our Boy Scouts got bored while driving to an event and apparently started drawing on his pants (thankfully it washed out) but I’ve been threatening to get him some chalkboard fabric — where did you get it, Stacy?

    Have a kiddo home sick with a cold, so I’m going to have some fun going through all the links!

      I got some at The Fabric Fairy recently, but I’ve seen some listed on’s website as well. I’ve played with it already and it works great!

        I told my home-sick kiddo about how you had a project posted for the chalkboard fabric and his eyes went wide. He thinks it’s a hysterical idea! Thinking I shouldn’t tell that boy’s parents and just surprise him with it!

        Oooo! A fun reason to go and play on’s website. T-R-O-U-B-L-E !!! : )
