I used to teach kids summer sewing camps – this post has all my best tips for teaching kids to sew.


More sewing with kids!


Spot - a Puppy Rag Doll Pattern in The Dress Up Bunch

One of the very first Dress Up Bunch dolls! Spot is shown here in just his collar, but he can wear all the outfits that the other rag dolls can wear.

One of the Party Animals! These little felt softies look complicated to make, but they’re actually really easy.


Bedtime pattern set - pajamas, pillow, pillowcase and quilt

An outfit for the Dress Up Bunch dolls! This set includes patterns for the pajamas, the quilt, the pillow, and the pillowcase. And they’ll all fit Spot the Dog from 2013. 🙂

This silly little stingray is super fun to stitch!


I redesigned the free Burnie Bee pattern. Such a cutie!


I just love monsters with underbites! I do this with a lot of my monster quilt patterns too. 😁


I drew this orangutan as part of my 100 Day project. I love this guy – but I still need to turn him into an applique pattern!


I’ve been designing free wallpapers for computers and mobile devices every month for years! I finally pulled them all together into one post so you can easily find and download the older designs.

Bellamy Bee! You can make this one with or without the little crown. (And you can use the crown in other blocks!)

Make an adorable little bison.


I’m showing you Landyn Lizard here, but you can use this pattern to make lizards, newts, salamanders, geckos, and more!
