Pojagi Inspired Cloth Napkins

Pojagi is a form of Korean hand stitching where your seams are fully enclosed, creating a beautiful, reversible piece. I first saw Daisy from Warm Folk talk about it, and I knew it was something I wanted to try for myself. Since the beauty of Pojagi is seeing both sides of your finished piece, this technique would work well for placemats, curtains, a simple linen shirt, apron, or table runner. Here’s some examples of traditionalContinue reading

Inkling | Whatnot Fabric

Ruby Star Society released their Spring 2020 collections recently and oh boy are they beautiful. Among them is Whatnot by Rashida Coleman Hale, which I was lucky enough to use for an Inkling quilt! Inkling is now available in the shop! Find it in both pdf and paper versions. Whatnot will ship to quilt shops in the fall. I love the bright, cheery colors and that some of the prints are almost an i-spy gameContinue reading

I used leftover backing cut-offs from my Concrete Jungle quilt for a pop of print! Etoile is now available in my shop! Other Versions: Etoile coverContinue reading

More Visible Mending! This time, socks

I mean, isn’t it just easier to go buy more? Well, maybe. But the truth is that I knit these socks myself, years ago, and I love them. And since I rarely knit anymore because it causesContinue reading

Visible Mending | Hemming Jeans

I’ve started clothes shopping pretty exclusively at thrift stores, especially for jeans. I often find jeans in great condition for just a couple of bucks. Knowing the ecological cost of producing jeans, buying them secondhand makes me very happy. Not only that, but I’ve found myself much more likely to use them, wear them out, and get them dirty when I only spent a handful of dollars. The “fear” of ruining good jeans goes away!Continue reading
