    I haven’t found a bad one yet…. they are all my favorites. Please keep up the great work.

  2. sonya5246

    I really like the Straight & Narrow quilt by Kari Carr. It gives me a reason to use my decorative stitches :)

  3. sharonp

    I love the DIY Tablet Case tutorial

  4. marti144

    I love the How To Hem Jeans tutorial, but the ultimate on-going spot was the Libby Lehman Name That Stitch videos – awesome! Miss them and hope Libby is progressing. Thanks!

  5. ucanquilt2

    I love all your projects, but if I need to choice one it would be Odds and Ends Quilting. I love to make scrappy quilts. Thanks for this giveaway

  6. alphabecky

    I love the Blanket In a Bag by Nicole Smith. Thanks for the chance to win!

  7. sew2much2

    I really like ‘Sandi’s Holiday Table Runner’

  8. butterflyksses

    The Paint your own Holiday Cards

  9. janet1v

    I think the tooth fairy pillow is one of my favorites. Hadn’t given that a thought, but my grandson will soon be dealing with the tooth fairy and I loved this idea. I’m so happy we can make the “event” even more special for him! Thanks to Stacy Sews and We All Sew for such a great idea.

  10. sewfun

    There isn’t one specific project I like, but I look for those projects that allow me to combine my embroidery with quilting. I enjoy both and like to combine when ever possible.

  11. firefly

    I love any of the tutorials showcasing presser feet and the wonderful things that can be done to enhance a project. I own many of these feet and never use them because I am just not sure how to do so correctly. These tutorials give me just the right ‘push’ to try new things.

  12. gaby

    How fun to have another giveaway. I enjoy most of your sewing ideas. One of my favorite tutorials is the Gathered Tote Tutorial. I’m just getting in to embroidery, so I’m sure to have new favorites.

  13. polarjo

    The quilted casserole carrier. We go to a lot of potluck type events and that carrier is perfect.

  14. cecilia3

    I really liked the messenger bag tutorial.

  15. patspatch

    My favorite is the circle quilt tutorial. but how can a person really pick a favorite?

  16. overjoy25

    I get so confused by which interfacing to use so when I read the info on interfacing that straightened everything out for me. Thanks.

  17. ktieman

    I liked the Trick-or-Treat Bags by Stacy Schlyer, mostly because the are so useful and fun to carry!

  18. sshulsky

    I love the sunrise quilt….it reminds me of the AZ sunrise.

  19. jschramm

    I really like the monster bag tutorial!

  20. oliviasews

    My favorite WeAllSew tutorial is the Snuggly Owl of course! Or the Lavender Sachet. Or the Wine Tote! I’ve made and love them all!

  21. thelittleredhen

    I like JCasa’s interactive greeting card.

  22. janetmerin

    I love today’s tutorial with the embroidery hoop caddy! Clever and nice way to bring fabric choice into a functional tool!


  23. sandy

    Do I really *have* to choose a favorite? Oh, okay — I guess I’d choose the compact sewing kit, since that’s the sort of thing I find very useful so as not to forget to take things with me. ;)

  24. brownj6610

    Favorite is the tooth fairy pillow.

  25. maegan86

    I really enjoyed the Coiled Rope Baskets. I have made two of them and plan on making at least 3 more for my house, ones for my mother in law. The directions were so easy to understand and it was fun to see the bowl appear as I was sewing it.

  26. quiltingseagull

    I love the Easter Table Topper!

  27. mimilyn

    Vintage Dress by Simple Simon & Company
    I love this little dress!!
    quick and easy to make – and so many ways to change it!!

    :) lyn

  28. debbiesue

    I love Jo’s Scrappy Plaid Quilt. I have started going through closets and will go visit some thrift shops in my area to make one for myself. I love that you can make something new and comfy from old shirts. I enjoy finding ways to repurpose old things.

  29. belljacy

    My favorite is the Altered Couture Jean Jacket. I’m always on the lookout for jean jackets at yard sales and ebay so I can have fun changing them for my kids or husband.

  30. sandyk

    For me, I love any of the kitchen items. Table toppers, mug rugs, special things to make your kitchen a brighter place.

  31. ladyj321

    It was so hard to pick but I have to say I loved the “Just wing it” Baby receiving blanket.

  32. gwyn1

    I like the make up brush roll. It can be made for quilting tools too! Perfect for retreats!

  33. terrykes

    The sleep mask and the Bunny Table Topper

  34. amylovestosew

  35. susani

    I absolutely love your site. You give us tips and tricks to assist us to be more skillful and creative! I LOVED your tablet cover project!

    I love the casserole carrier project. Thanks for the giveaway!!!

  42. sbak613

    The super kid cape!

  43. birgit

    The rope basket tutorial – because its unexpected and original. And its so simple to do — well I hope so because its on my to do list….not my done list. Congratulations

  44. snobahr

    I found the Jeans hemming tutorial to be really helpful, but my absolute favourites are the various foot showcases. I’m drooling over the ruffler, and seriously jonesing for the binding attachment feet.

  45. dodie

    Is this the We All Sew blog site where I am to leave the answer to the question, “What is your favorite WeAllSew project or tutorial?” If so, where are all the other comments/entries?
    My answer for my favorite WeAllSew project or tutorial is:

    T-Shirt Shrink Down by Kathryn Goodman.

    ~ Dodie

  46. amrenger

    Mug Rugs!

  47. edye32

    I love all of them, can’t pick a favorite. Bernina rocks!

  48. maryonmatilda274

    I ALWAYS love seeing the use for all the wonderful Bernina feet. The #3 foot is now one of my favorite. Blog post I liked . . .I don’t have to go back far. Learning how to finish the edge for napkins without a serger was great!

  49. udlizzy

    Congrats on your 52,000 likes. I learned to sew on my mother’s Bernina. It was one thing I inherited from her when she died. Most of my clothes I wore in high school was made on it. You make a great product. Thanks.

  50. udlizzy

    Sorry, forgot to comment on the best project. Too many good ones to choose from. I like most of them.

  51. mpeaslee

    Grab It and Go Wallet by Kathryn Goodman is my favorite project. I must have made this wallet a dozen times for folks. I have made it a bit wider in some cases

  52. babs650

    I enjoy them all, but particularly the latest is the casserole carrier. Congrats!

  53. eat00a

    I’m new to the site but can’t wait to find a favorite!

  54. sparrow1929

    I have really enjoyed making aprons lately so my favorite project is sew an apron and show your gratitude. I really want to remember to celebrate national tie one on day this year.

  55. Jenelle Montilone

    This is a great craft project and must have for any sewist… I’m always fiddling around looking for that darn tomato as it gets buried under scraps on my table.

    Congratulations on reaching another milestone!

  56. jwells12

    Currently love following the fabric design contest-what creativity!

  57. emb27

    Thanks for giveaway!

  64. bmcanulty819

    How do you decide on a favorite project or tutorial. I like the “feet” tutorials. I don’t use my machine for all I could and this really helps me stretch my skills.

  65. ramona

    My favorite ARE the tutorials/seminars you hold. I have sat in on a couple of them and have learned some valuable tips that I have not learned elsewhere in the 30+ years of sewing. I guess you are never too old to learn something!! Thank you.

  75. roberta255

    I love the Bernina FB page! I get updates and WeAllSew by email too! I have been sewing on a Bernina 1530 for over twenty years!

  76. laurad

    My favorite project was the polka-dot clutch. I made it for a friend’s birthday and it was a huge hit! It was very easy to follow the directions and the photos were great. Thank you for the wonderful projects.

  77. woodsew

  116. indians64

    I like everything but I especially like embroidery and quilting. If I had to pick one, I’d say the tooth fairy pillow.

  117. joanneh9399

    Since I am the grandmother of 12 grandchildren my favorite project is of course the tooth fairy pillow!!!!!

  118. momdaloon

    Am I excited! I hadn’t clued in about the offerings on the We All Sew webpage until I saw the posting on Facebook. I had liked the Bernina Facebook and knew about the online sewing magazine. So, now that I have discovered it, I am immediately drawn to the Snuggly Owl pillow. I will definitely be making that!

  119. kgalambus

    I like the strips for strips for stripes tote!

  138. dj79mill

    I like Jo’s scrappy Plaid Quilt. I am using a version of it to make a quilt for a girl from her father’s shirts.

    • WeAllSew

      I’d love to see it when you’re done! Jo

  139. btfly61

  142. sewinglady1960

    I like anything that combines embroidery and quilting… I really liked the quilted casserole carrier!

  143. laurasj

    Jo’s Scrappy Plaid Quilt is cute….makes me want to try a new skill!

  144. tear

    While I am new to We All Sew, I loved this one: fun things you can do with a bernina, http://weallsew.com/2013/04/15/fun-things-your-can-do-with-a-bernina-sewing-machine/

    It inspires me to be even more colorful and innovative!

  145. washergirl

    I love the pincushions. when ever I need something to do I go for them

  146. shannonj74

    Monster Bag for sure! I also love the tooth fairy pillow. Our tooth fairy leaves a new toothbrush.

  147. betty

    Hard to pick one! They are all great. I’m making shower gifts and the “Just Wing It” baby receiving blanket tutorial adds the WOW factor to my blankets.

  148. justducky

    I love the zippered pouches

  149. Kathryn Campbell

    The tooth fairy pillow

  150. mthackston

    The tutorial for how to hem jeans was something I can really use a lot, so it’s my favorite. I also liked the hot and cold neck wrap project . It was super easy and super useful.

  151. 3belts

    Tooth Fairy Pillow was just too cute!

  152. cinschultz8

    Gosh, the projects are all really cute, fun and they have great instructions. thank you.

  153. denisebb

    My favorite project is Melissa Mortensen’s Beach Bound Straw Tote. I gravitate towards purse and tote projects and tutorials and since I live near the SE coast this especially caught my eye. I like the use of unconvential material (straw) and applique. It made my creative juices flow on other ways to combine these materials – maybe a more durable straw beach mat with pockets.

  154. Lisa Donlan

    I love the free patterns.

  155. Ali

    The Zipped Up Selvage Pouch!!
    I like the idea of using “leftovers” plus you can never have to many pouches! P

  156. Mary

    I like all the different tote bags. I love making them.

  157. Diane Mooney

    Any that show me new products that make sewing fun & easy.

  158. Jackie

    My favorite project, which i made for my new grandson, was the Sunrise Quilt.

  159. Nancy W

    I enjoy all on we all sew! Favorite stop of the day! Zipper pouches, table runners, quilts , help with garment sewing has all been invaluable to me! The best is you support is with your wonderful sewing machines with these projects. There are too many to choose one but since we are in summer ill say the watermelons placemats are the hit of the season!
    Thank you!!

  160. debd

    I’ve just found you and am finding lots of great projects – no idea what’s my favorite yet!

  161. stitchmaker

    The Zipped Up Selvedge Pouch. Clever1

  162. marylou

    Western mug rug and video tutorials from Bernina.

  163. billiesews

    It is so hard to choose, but the Gorgeous Gathered Bag Tutorial is probably my most favorite.

  164. Leanne Gillen

    I love the idea of the selvage pouch. Any ideas using up scraps is a great idea! Fabric is expensive and the more ways to use up our scraps we will normally throw away is a great economical and planet friendly project!

  165. Sabina Wuertenberger

    I really like the Beach Bound Straw Tote-but they’re all great!

  166. ogdenmommy

    I loved the tutorial about the walking foot. I just finished a t-shirt quilt and would have LOVED to have known about this fantastic foot! It was hard without it. I think I’ll be saving up for this purchase next :)

  167. Fran S

    I love all the projects because they inspire me creatively!

  168. threads

    From the past, Bohemian bag. More recently, zip selvage bag.

  169. hikesewbike
