Easy Last Minute Holiday Gifts

Even though there's only one more day of Hanukkah and one week until Christmas, you still have time to whip up a last-minute gift!
This cardigan was found at Target, then Jennifer swapped out the buttons for some fun sparkly ones and added a trim at the collar.
We have this trim in lots of colors, and the possibilities are endless.Jennifer hand sewed the trim to the sweater, and she has machine washed and dried this cute sweater with great results.

Or, whip up a fun scarf. These projects take about an hour each, and they're the height of fashion and fun!
We also have just received about 6 colorways of the new Della Fleece by Valori Wells.
There are many easy gifts to be made from this fun and soft fabric.
This is destined to be a baby blanket for a dear friend, and though she's worth a lot of time and effort, this blanket will be perfect with no sewing at all.

I don't know about you out there, but I always feel a little pang of guilt when I cut into some cute creature when I am sewing.
For this project I decided to utilize the non-fraying quality of the fleece to cut around these darling little owls.
This blanket took about 10 minutes, the fabric does all the work, frankly, and it's cozy and cute as can be!

Good luck with your projects!

The Treadlettes.

Amy Butler Trunk Show

I see it's been a couple of weeks since posting here, and what a great couple of weeks they were!
First of all, thanks to you all we had a terrific sale!
Second, some excitement ensued when we received our copies of One Yard Wonders, featuring patterns designed by Treadlettes Jess and Nina!
Third, we said goodbye to the Sewing Workshop Trunk Show and welcomed in the Amy Butler Trunk Show.This trunk show is full of bags, dresses, and aprons, some of which are made up in the new Love line of fabrics.
As the sign above states, all Amy Butler patterns will be 10% off for the duration of the trunk show.

Lastly, we have some fun classes still to come in this session. Our class highlight today is the Fun Stuff with Felt class scheduled for this Saturday at 10 AM.With edges that won't ravel when cut, and a huge selection of colors, felt is a great medium for small hand-sewn projects like barrettes, small bags and crowns.

See you all in stitches,
The Treadlettes.
