Last week's link up was full of amazing tutorials!
...including this oil-cloth sewing machine cover put together by mother and daughter over at Maddie Moes. I need one of these.
Sewing 4 Sofia put together this perfect Lalaloopsy applique with detailed instructions so you can replicate it, too. I'm not a fan of the show (at all) but I am a fan of this fabulous work.
If you're heading to a busy fair, park, concert, event-of-large-crowds this summer, here's is a brilliant ID cuff you can make for your little one. JANuaAry trifft JuNE includes a full tutorial, and a convenient Google Translate button for those of us reading in English.
This very clear tutorial (with fabulous fabric choices) makes me think I should take up quilting now instead of when The Peanut decides she will no longer wear my creations. Made by Chrissie D is tempting me with this Single Irish Chain block (did I get that nomenclature right? -- sometimes quilting seems to have it's own language to me).

I love a good Link Party. Perusing link parties is how I found most of the sewing-bloggers I now follow, led me to learn sewing tips and tricks I never would have discovered otherwise, and first introduced me to the world of self-published sewing patterns. My favorite parties are inevitably the ones populated by lots of sewing, or knitting, or cross-stitch, or crochet; but those links can be hard to find through all the food and decor and blogging tips these days. So rather than endlessly search the interwebs for those rare link parties full of fabric and yarn and embroidery floss, I thought I'd bring it to my little corner of the web. And now it's time to link up!
Keep to the medium of fiber.
Basically anything with fabric, thread, floss, or yarn is welcome—sewing of all kinds (sew), cross-stitch & embroidery (needle), knitting (stitch), crochet (hook).
Showcase your own work.Please no link parties, giveaways, or advertisements.
Upload up to three links per week.
You can also link-up images from Flickr and Pinterest (as long as it's your own uploaded work); so even if you don't have a blog of your own, you can still inspire others and get feedback by sharing your work with us here. But please avoid repetition from week to week, or even within the same week.
That's it! Easy as pie. If you see something you like, be polite and let the creator know with comments on their blog. Now let's get started...
You should really see all that goes into each project!
From my model preferring to dance free than pose for pics, to my stress every time I find myself in the button aisle. Daily updates on Instagram (and Flickr) of works-in-progress will give you that behind the scenes view you’re looking for, and sneak peeks of First Tuesday Tutorials, too.
