Introducing our newest pattern - the Traveling Checkerboard! The zipper pocket on the back creates convenient checker storage making it easy to take on the go. I am passionate about encouraging the use of handmade items with kids, especially my own. When they choose a handmade toy or blanket over a store bought one it makes all my hard work seem worth it! So I'm always looking for ways to bring more handmade items into our home, but in a practical, useful sort of way. (Hence the Bucket Tote, the Floor Pouf, you'll notice there's a trend there!) That's where...

Cuteness factor overload! I am so excited about how this bucket tote turned out! Turns out our medium sized bucket tote pairs perfectly with a block from the Book Nerd quilt pattern. We got the Book Nerd quilt pattern in the shop a few weeks ago at the recommendation of a customer (you guys know the best stuff!!) I was so excited to try it, but I knew a whole quilt was not going to fit in my schedule right now. So I decided to try it on a bucket tote - it would be the perfect spot to corral...

For my niece's 14th birthday I made her a travel notebook using our Journal Cover Kit. She is planning a road trip to Utah to see Arches National Park with a friend when she's old enough to drive. It's fun to have something to connect with her. I love a good road trip and I've had the privilege of exploring a bit of the Southwest and it's National Parks. So I put together a map of the area and labeled the spots I think she should see with page numbers from the guide book I got her. Instead of just...

I had so much fun making this quilt from our Strip Quilt instructions. I loved that I was able to start and finish it in just one evening. What I did to make it go quickly: I stacked 3 fat quarters at a time when I cut the strips. Don't waste time thinking about the color layout. It truly works best if you put all of the strips in a pile and randomly put them together. I started by matching up pairs and chain piecing the pairs together. I repeated this process until I had all of the strips sewn...
