Sew & Tell - Mellisa's A-line Skirt

f0194450_99239.jpgMaking a skirt is much easier than you think. Why don't you try like Mellisa did here. She made this lovely skirt out of Clematis from the Daisy Chain collection. I love this light gray and turquoise combination. She added a little trimming with the Kaleidoscope pattern. The detail like this is something you can only get from handmade. Thanks, Mellisa!

The Heat is Gone

f0194450_928754.jpgIt's been unusually hot here in San Francisco. The past couple days were in the 90's...I loved it. I could stay in a short sleeve and leave the door open all day long, but the heat is already gone...at least here in the inner sunset. The fog is rolling in...sad...

Sew & Tell - Shinobu's Beddings

f0194450_8271241.jpgShinobu and her family found a better place to live in SF, and the life is sweeter even though their new house is just next door...she got her little girl and herself new beddings by making ones. What could be more fun than decorating your little girl's room? Her 5 year old has a sweeter dream when she sleeps in the pink birdie duvet and matching pillow case. She also has a pair of lounge pillows to lean on when her mom reads her a bed time story. The house is still under progress, but a happy family comes from a happy home, right?

The couple's new bedding...she chose Amy Butler's coriander teal for the duvet and pillows, and wall flower green for the accent pillow. Soothing and relaxing! Excellent job and thank you, Shinobu!

Sew & Tell - Fumiko's Japanese Rose Tote

f0194450_4545127.jpgI have a beautiful Japanese rose print that I always see as a bag or a pillow case in a modern living room (which I don't have) but never did anything with it. It is a gorgeous piece, but most people don't know what to do with it. So I put it on the sale table for 10.50 per yard. Then Fumiko came in and got an eye on it. The fabric has a formal feel but she made a casual tote that serves her everyday life. She goes with it to drop and pick up her kids, to grocery, and to Peapod :-) It also looks great with her brown Chuck Taylor! Thanks much, Fumiko!

Sew & Tell - Marin Day School Quilt

f0194450_8572812.jpgKid in the Llama Class at Marin Day School in Laurel Heights were busy making a quilt. Well, the actual piecing and quilting part will be done by those three creative moms in the picture here, but the kids took a big part drawing animals on the fabrics. Isn't this great? Everyone is an artist! The school is holding a fundraiser this Saturday, and I'm sure the highest bidder will be so proud of receiving this one of a kind quilt. Thanks everyone!!!

Sew & Tell - Sarah's Baby Quilt

f0194450_8454978.jpgA new mom, Sarah finished her very first quilt, and the result is what you see here. Lovely! I love the colors and they all go well together. The pattern is from Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little Ones, I think...She never made a quilt before, but the motivation behind this is of course her baby girl. Being almost 6 months, she is now waiting to be dressed in mom's handmade dress. Pressure? :-) Thanks Sarah!

Sew & Tell - Yufu's blouse

f0194450_6354845.jpgIt seems that soon-to-be a big sister, Saho is the only girl in mom's handmade clothes in town...Here she is wearing a retro green floral top over the denim skirt. The style is so versatile. You can make it longer to be a summer dress, or layered over a long sleeve for a chilly San Francisco summer day. Thanks always, Yufu and littel Saho!

Sew & Tell - Josephine's Messenger Bag

f0194450_975344.jpgI know everyone loves whimsical linen/cotton blend from Japan, and Josephine is one of them. She made this messenger bag out of the lam and bad wolf print. I love this print! The messenger bag patterns are available from some sources, but this size looks perfect for everyday use.
Thanks, Josephine!
f0194450_985257.jpgShe got the pattern from the New Handmade.
