They do not require any folding, Pressing & pinning up edges. They have no side seams, Have fun with fabric choices, use 2 coordinating fabrics, or all one fabric.Make as shorts, Capri length, or pants. Now it's done!

I spent some time yesterday writing (8 pages so far) about how to start teaching sewing. Does this interest you? If so, lets keep in touch. There is a big market out there of people wanting to learn to sew, and I trying to make a way to help experienced sewers to teach. Email me at

I created a new Christmas stocking pattern today, haven't even written it out yet, but had my student (the Proofreader) make it tonight and she loved it! This is a photo of her holding the two she made in class tonight!
Now, I need to get writing!

Bow Tied Tray
I wrote a new pattern last night, see photo.
I use it on trips, pack in my suitcase, use in hotels to keep my personal items in, or to have chips, popcorn, using it as a bowl.  It could be made in rectangles or squares. You could make one to fit your casserole dish to keep it warm while serving. The bows untie to lay it flat. It can be washed and dried in machine. Makes nice gifts.

Crocheting & Knitting Baby Hats

I've been crocheting and knitting newborn baby hats.  I was inspired by a friend, Kim, who helps her husband in his photography business. They've photographed babies. The trend now is to put funky or pretty knitted or crocheted hats on the naked newborn baby for it's first photos. She bought some from me, but, I was so inspired, I made lots of them. So many that I had to list them online for sale. Take a look, click HERE.
