Festive + fancy! Precision decorative stitching runs across this apron’s bodice and forms the “strings” for the skirt’s sparkling ornament appliqués. We love the empire waist, piping accents, and wide sash ties.
Whether you’re traveling near or far, our handsome, go-everywhere tote is a wonderful addition to your packing plans. A subtle monogram is the finishing touch that really makes the project your own.

Napkins are a great project for beginning sewers and an excellent way for anyone to practice hemming. Adding a simple fabric border kicks them up a notch, and the clever beaded ties are a cute alternative to place cards.

Our soft shoulder bag is beginner friendly but with a very stylish finish. The cool strap-and-tassel closure is a look we spotted on some of the trendiest designer bags. To get the signature slouch, look for a very fine wale corduroy.
With clever cutting and careful stitching, this ribbon-accented bag is super cute and super easy. No complicated corners or closures, and the main body of the bag is a heavy wool felt, one of the most forgiving fabrics for new sewers.
A crisp, cute bag with a bucket shape and cinched top – a silhouette popular season after season. We created our sample in a modern canvas with polished nickel hardware and a twisted cord for the signature drawstring closure.

Tuck a letter to Santa in one pocket, a special treat for him in the other. Then, leave the pillow out overnight and check in the morning to see what Santa has returned. Perhaps a letter back and another special treat!
