Molly Hanson shares the story of her first sewing machine, and instructions for making your own version of her BERNINA-winning apron!
Here in Chicago we’re starting to pull things together for the much anticipated gardening seaseon (is it spring yet?), including taking stock of our gardening “stuff”. I was thinking – what better way to keep all of our tools in order than to stitch up a few organizers? It didn’t take me long to find a bunch of awesome tutorials and projects – and here are my favorites!
This year the day right before Thanksgiving is National Tie One On Day. Give an apron (or wrap an apron around a homemade baked gift) and pass it along to someone in need as a way to give thanks. We’re celebrating by sharing one of our favorite apron projects, the one yard “no-waste” apron.
Over the years, I’d noticed Thanksgiving talked about in terms more commonly associated with stress than joy. Remembering my mother’s absolute love of Thanksgiving as a day more than anything else of sharing and gratefulness, I embarked on a personal campaign to put the “give” back into Thanksgiving.
