Inspiration: 12 Gifts for Christmas

It's that time of the year again! 
Are you ready for it? 


No? Well, we're here to help!
We picked our favorite handmade gifts to help you celebrate this year. 
You read that right. They are all handmade! 


It is important to support other crafters and artists. 
Keep them in mind when you are buying gifts or just looking for a special item for yourself! 
Making a purchase from another crafter allows you to build a relationship with the maker as well as gives your item a story that is fun to pass along to those receiving or complimenting the item. 
(You can't get that from buying items from a department store!) 


Check out these great gifts!

This polyester blouse weight twill by Milly has the perfect weight and drape for a relaxed shirt dress. If you prefer a more structured look, stick to a cotton shirting or light weight sateen. I loved this fabric and print so much that I grabbed both colorways. Unfortunately this fabric is sold out, but you can browse other shirtings and blouse weight fabrics here.


This fabric has a somewhat slinky feel, but isn't truly slippery. There's also a slight sheen without being shiny like a satin. It was easy to cut and sew, but I did get a few snags when pinning so make sure you use sharp pins and a fresh machine needle. I serged my pieces before assembling the pattern because as m…

Fabricista Guest Post: "Julie's Picks" Goes to the Opera

As a bit of background, I fell madly in love with opera in 2015 when I attended my first performance in a movie theater as part of the Metropolitan Opera's "Live in HD" simulcasts, which projects live staged operas in New York City into cinemas worldwide via satellite.
