Pillowcases for Ronald McDonald House

Recently, I was invited by the Music City Quilt Guild to help sew pillowcases for children staying at the local Ronald McDonald House. While I'm not a member of the guild (I haven't ventured into sewing quilts yet), I know several of the members and jumped at the chance to participate in a fun group sewing event. That's me holding up the pillowcase with a green edge.

sewVery Simple One Seam Skirt Tutorial

It's time for the Simple Simon & Co.'s Skirting the Issue series again, and I'm participating this year with my sewVery Simple One Seam Skirt Tutorial.

Skirting the Issue is all about making skirts to donate to girls in need. While the ladies at Simple Simon & Co. will be donating skirts to girls in foster care, I have sewn together several skirts in a variety of sizes to donate to girls in need at my daughter's school. These skirts, made using my sewVery Simple One Seam Skirt Tutorial, were a breeze to make and take little fabric.

DIY Fabric Clipboard

The other day at Target, I picked up a plain brown clipboard, a small bottle of Mod Podge from the $1 aisle, and a packet of sponge brushes and decided to cover the clipboard in fabric. This project was so quick and simple, that it took less than 30 minutes from start to finish! Here's how you can make your own DIY Fabric Clipboard, too!
