I do my best to keep my handmade gift list manageable, because I've made the mistake in the past of trying to do too much and having it be a really stressful experience that sucked the joy out of the season for me. So now, I try to limit my list a little. If I have a really good idea for someone and it sounds like fun to make - great! If not, and if all they really would prefer is a gift card, no big deal. One thing I have committed to though is to have a handmade gift...

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...

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...

We've got a new quilt to share with you today! It is the next release from our Pretty Easy Pattern series. I've had the idea for this quilt in my head for a really long time, and I am so excited to finally share it with you! We call it Formation and it is my take on a patriotic quilt that is a bit more subtle than your typical themed quilt. I've always loved the red, white and blue color combo. It's so clean and classic, but I've never found the perfect patriotic fabric or quilt that spoke to me....

A new year and bitter cold temps inspire me to get organized! Today we wanted to share with you a free tutorial for a bed pocket. Is your nightstand piled high with books and magazines? Is your kid constantly searching under the bed for their favorite book or stuffed animal? This is the solution! A bed pocket is a runner that fits under the mattress of a bed with two pockets that hang down from the box spring to hold books, magazines, stuffed animals, remote controls, whatever you need to keep close at hand and can't bare to jump out...
