Linda's latest YouTube Video!!

Posted by Linda MacPhee on

Another quick and easy project that I love. THANKS FOR THE SPLENDID RESPONSE FROM OUR LAST NEWSLETTER. Plastic bags are the plague of this planet so here's how to help!  You need one (or 2 or 3) that are SMALL enough to fit in a purse or clip to your backpack and are able to be WASHED. I first printed this pattern #880 in 1990 and now 28 years later it's still selling like crazy! What a fine gift for Mother's day and an even greater gift for MOTHER EARTH !!  We are so convinced of it's worth that we did a FUN, INSTRUCTIONAL YOU-TUBE video...

SPRING HAS FINALLY SPRUNG???

Posted by Linda MacPhee on

Nothing spells spring in the air like BIRDS! Although it's a bit chilly in many parts for the real ones….we can make bright and colorful ones to welcome the season.   I first made them for a CELEBRATION OF LIFE that was held outdoors. They hung happily in all the trees/fences/clothesline, and uplifted our spirits. Everyone attending got to take one home for a parting remembrance. Sew….the kits includes the pattern, fabric, feathers, eyes, wings and topcomb. For one bird.  All you need is a sewing machine, some stuffing and a gluegun.  BONUS….a great  learn-to-sew project for kids wanting/learning to sew!  Anywhere...

SHOPPING BAGS TO HELP SAVE THE PLANET

Posted by Linda MacPhee on

I'm thinking a great idea for all of us who sew is to flood the world with reusable shopping bags and free the world from plastic bags! There are over 500 BILLION plastic bags used world wide each year!, they sit in landfills for a thousand years! 

This has been my obsession for many years now - in fact I first printed my "World's Easiest Shopping Bag" pattern in 1990! (28 years ago!!) ..............
