FREE mini course - Create Your Perfect Baby Shower Gift

Beginner friendly projects - detailed instructions - perfect first projects to improve your sewing skills -

With this free mini course you are not just creating three perfect baby shower gifts but you also learn a few basic sewing techniques and knowledge along the way.

Dive in and learn how to sew curves and how to easily adjust any sewing mistakes happening on corners without stitching backwards and have this awkward feeling of pressing the lever and moving your fabric while trying to hit the same stitches. Learn how to align your sewing foot for top-stitching and get some basic tips on pattern matching when sewing with directional prints.

This class is perfect for anyone who already knows how to thread their machine, create a seam and how to prepare and cut fabric but would love to improve their knowledge about sewing curves and to add a few other tricks into their sewing repertoire while having fun creating.

Learn more about what projects are included and how you can spice them up to create a very personalized look and feel.

These are the projects we will create within this class:

  • Cuddly Cozy Comforter
  • Beautiful Baby Burb Cloth
  • Super Cute Baby Bib

Now let's have a closer look how we can make them even more special and unique

This one should be an easy one for everyone to guess obviously by choosing specific fabric that suits your style and your preference.

But I'd like to top this with something you may have not thought about before.

Have you ever seen a fabric before and you seen something in it that others haven't? I'd like to use the example of this fabric that I found from Benartex. It's called "Dance of the Dragonfly Swirling Sky" and the fabric has some swirls in it but also some dots and stars. Let's have a closer look.

When I saw this fabric for the first time I was mesmerized by the pattern. And I'd like to ask you to imagine your life is like a swirl as shown in this fabric surrounded by white dots the ups and downs in life all the obstacles you have to face. The stars watching over you and reminding you of the good things in life and to never give up! No matter how much we get tossed around we always come out stronger than before.....

Next time you look at fabric to choose for your project look at it deeper and see if you can even see a bit more than just the pattern that's visible. :)

Hi I'm Susanne an Inspirational Sewing Instructor who loves quilting and creating any quick and easy sewing projects.

I always try to see the positive in everything no matter how tiny the "good spark" is. And whenever possible I try to see this in the fabric I choose as well or I stitch good memories or a good feeling into my projects. Sew with purpose and make the most of the time you have.

If I'm not sewing I either spin ideas what I could create or simply enjoy spending time with family and friends.
