Decorate with my Artist Thread Packs
These exquisite threads can be used on your serger, sewing machine or even Sashiko!
Introducing my favorite specialty threads! I've curated 2 collections of WonderFil 12 weight Spagetti threads. Each Artist's Palette collection includes 10 spools (110 yds each). Bayside Blooms are soft pastels and Paint Box are 10 bright/bold colors. Watch the video for more information on the thread pallets and see how easy it is to doll up a shawl.

Valentine's Day Heart Pouch
Crafting a handmade Valentine's Day pouch is a heartfelt way to let that special someone know you care. Learn how to make these lovely baskets and fill them with sweet treats or love notes! Also great for Christmas or birthdays.
Creative Chainstitch or Rolled Hem
Since tassel necklaces are a hot fashion accessory right now, why not make one? I didn’t buy any of the components-just serged off some chainstitching (or rolled hem stitching) and went “foraging” in my bead collection.
Up-cycle Scrap Fabric and make a Table Runner
Don’t throw away or let those “leftover” seasonal fabric pieces sit idle in your stash. If you love to make holiday décor pieces as much as I do, here’s a great way to use those smaller pieces.
Holiday Ball Wall Quilt
The coverstitch and chainstitch are wonderful for hems but here’s a fun holiday project using these versatile stitches as decorative and construction elements to create a beautiful holiday ball wall quilt.
Red, White and Green
Fun upcycle American Flag Project
Here’s a fun project to use up those fabric scraps from previous projects. Channel your inner Betsy Ross and make a flag on your serger for the 4th of July. Last year I challenged myself to just use fabric pieces in my stash and buttons from my button collection for my flag. To vary the shades of red, both the right and wrong sides of a variety of fabrics are featured. Read the instructions in my previous blog post and download the template below.
Sew Easy Easter Eggs
