The Angry Chicken has a tutorial to make this five minute skirt. You can download a PDF with the instructions. By the way, the five minute rule only applies if you use a serger, but it’s a simple skirt so even using a sewing machine won’t add much time. It’s a two piece pattern with no waist band. While you’re there, be sure and watch her how to video on applying bias tape. Besides being informative, it’s also entertaining and you can see how to make a cheap video with a low budget.

Aren’t these sharp looking quilts? These are made by Karen Griska at Selvage I’ve decided I just really enjoy the look of things made with selvages, which these quilts are done in. I’m not sure how long it takes to collect enough selvages to make a quilt. Karen has this tutorial that shows you how to make several types of blocks using selvages. The FAQ also has interesting info on using selvages.

The newest project at DIY Style is a foldover clutch purse. You can download a PDF with instructions that show you how to make it with and without the decorative details on the flap. You can see all the other projects listed here. They have a little bit of everything: fashion, home decorating, and even some doggie duds. I don’t think I can get my dogs into any kind of duds so I didn’t even look at these patterns.

Finally, Dizzy Daisy shows how to decorate button clip and bobby pins to match your outfit. A very simple and easy tutorial that uses fabric scraps, a fabric covered button kit, glue, and a pair of needle nosed pliers.

Until next time!

I don’t know how you do it, but you find such interesting projects. The skirt is adorable…and did you notice that yummy looking rhubarb pie right below the skirt?

I’m impressed by how easy this skirt is to make…just need to pull out that serger. I’m also planning on making Amy Butler’s Barcelona skirt, and I picked up her French bag pattern. If you haven’t been there lately she’s posted two new quilt patterns. And yes, the pie looks tasty (with different fruit). Am I the only one who saves recipes but never think to try one when I cook?
