Notebook pockets, in the hoop

You probably saw this coming: I made an in-the-hoop version of the notebook pocket. It’s simplified: only the zipper pocket, and no turning. I’ll be writing it up and adding it to the freebie list this weekend, probably. The first one I made used the full 5×7 hoop, and that works for a Leuchtturm size […]

Making notebook pen holder pouches

I needed a little gift for reasons, and so finally made a little Sewing Times project: a notebook pen holder. It’s an easy little project, just a zippered pouch that happens to have elastic across the back so you can slide it over a notebook cover. There’s a video tutorial but I didn’t watch it […]

The party of the first part

I’m having entirely too much fun playing mix-and-match with the pieces of Choly Knight’s chibi doll series. I used a random character generator to build a party of first-level D&D characters, mostly randomly. I wanted one of each of the 4e roles, I wanted four different species (and no dwarves or halflings yet), but otherwise […]

Purple dragonborn paladin

Charm holders and more Whelan

As per usual, I spent some time distracted by brightly-colored objects. Result: snap tabs that hold interchangeable shoe charms (Jibbitz being the official version, which these are not). I may noodle around with bracelet versions before Freebie Friday, but a single adult-sized one barely fits (on the diagonal) in a 5×7 hoop so I’m not […]

Larger dragons

The largest dragon I usually make is four or five inches tall (that’s the Cherry/Raspberry Sno-Cone in 4″, who also makes a pretty good trans pride flag dragon for June). That’s as big as will fit in my embroidery machine; while I do have a lot of experience with conventional sewing, I kind of hate […]
