    1. Each month I work fun craft projects in between my quilting. This month I have plans to make the zipper embroidered pouches, hot pads, cork passport covers, cutwork coasters and do the classes on paintwork and crystalwork. Seems like a lot but I am retired and sewing is like a day of fun for me.

    2. I like to make zippered bags of all shapes and sizes also. I just finished one w/ my granddaughter’s first initial on a front half, and a striped fabric on the other half. Nice, if I do say so myself.

    3. I love quilting and embroidery. I often combine embroidery with my quilt projects. I also like to add embroidery to my sweatshirts so they are not so plain.

    4. I love, love, love making Embroidered in the hoop projects on my Bernina 790 plus. It’s so much fun. I always try to share the fun with someone, especially my Sisters. Great coordinating fabrics make it even better. Thanks for posting great projects.

  1. My favorite project is making mug rugs for holidays, special occasions, etc. They are fast, useful, and all my giftees are so excited to get a cute gift.

  2. I love making crafty gifts that will brighten someone’s day. Going through my stash usually inspires the actual project…..often a zippered bag for special treasures. Looking forward to trying the Triangle Zippered Pouch and the Lavender Eye Pillow!

  3. I enjoy making notebook covers for friends to encourage them to keep a journal. They are a useful project for practicing specialty techniques in software, and I use Foot #20 for couching decorative threads along the outside edge. My favorite fabric is linen.

  4. Being a beginner – and self teaching – so far my favorite things to make are fabric baskets. I love the mug rugs though so really am looking forward to learning to make them. Have to start fairly easy and work my way to harder projects. Thanks

  5. I love your site. It has such nice projects. Right now I am loving in the hoop projects because they generally go together quickly. Right now I am also making quilts which takes more time.

  6. I prefer usable [as opposed to only decorative] crafts. Lately I’ve made coasters/mug rugs from fat quarters and scraps. A good way to use up the stash!

  7. Enjoy sewing many types of projects…from quilted wall hangings, to bags and storage items, to items for animal shelters, to health related items, to kids apparel and household decor.

  8. I love making seasonal door hangings. My Mom just moved to assisted living and asked for decorations for her door so I have a whole new set to make.

  9. Since I am a quilter, I love making smaller things that are faster makes!!! I like kitchen items… pot holders, microwave dish holders, napkins!!! Your apron design looks like fun and it is very attractive!!!
    Thank you.

  10. When it comes to crafts, I go where ever my impulses take me. I’ve made bags, cushions for the outdoor furniture, puppets, stuffed animals, and so on and so forth.

  11. ITH zipper bags. No one ever has said “I have too many zippered bags.” Large “fit all my legos”, small coin size, medium make up size, etc…every holiday I get asked for zipper bags. It’s the great in home filing system. It’s simple to add lettering, designs, flowers, some kind of personalized point of reference.

  12. Baby bibs and burp cloths are my latest, but also got a lot of enjoyment out of making walker bags for the local rehab center. Inspired by the many wonderful ideas in this post!

  13. My favorite sewing projects so far have been for charity…pillowcases for children in hospitals, nicu smocks for preemies, kennel quilts for animal shelters.

  14. I enjoy quilting and machine embroidery, these tools would be used with sewing and making my projects. Right now I’m some stuffed toys to be given to children’s shelter and hospitals. Thank you for a chance to win!

  15. Sewing is my creative outlet and takes me away from all the stress! My favorite “crafty” project is pillows – I could sew pillows all day every day. There are so many shapes, designs, etc. you can dream up without evening planning ahead and gives you an accomplished feeling when done.

  16. My favorite type of crafty sewing project is a practical solution to a need, usually a need to make my or someone else’s life easier. So it’s usually something practical which I can personalize. For example, in the last week, I have made a custom-sized tea cozy and matching hot pad, as well as added an inside pocket for my bird-watching vest.

  17. My favorite type of crafty sewing project is sewing baby items like burp cloths and bibs. They work up fairly quickly and the choices of fabric (flannel, terry cloth, fleece) for babies is so cute.

  18. My favorite crafty sewing project is to take something old, or too big, or out of style, or meant for some other use, and turn it into a new item that I like to wear or use! It is so fun to be creative with cast-offs!

  19. Its so hard to pick just one favorite type of project! I love them all, especially whatever I’m working on at the moment, which happens to be amulet bags for girls’ necklaces, currently. And grocery bags.

  20. I’ve been sewing almost 60 years. I’ve sewen for a young family from undies to winter coats. My passion now is anything embroidery. I’m enjoying FSL projects, quilts, table runners, pillows, and anything else you can put emboridery on. Love it when you have a good machine to work with.
    Marleine Sorenson

  21. My favorite……sewing anything on my Bernina 880. I love sewing items for my home and for my family. Getting inspiration from We All Sew is always inspirational.

  22. As a relatively new owner of a Bernina, I am totally enjoying the We All Sew blog. I enjoy making useful items for friends and relatives… almost all my projects are given away.

  23. One of my favorite crafty sewing projects is to make fabric baskets. They are so versatile. I’ll often fill them with cookies for a gift. I’m currently creating some machine embroidered in the hoop bunnies, to go inside of fabric baskets, to give to kids of neighbors, friends & family members for Easter.

  24. My favorite crafting includes “recycling” older materials into new treasures. My most recent project was a zippered pouch made from saved carhart-type heavy denim with a faux leather base. Very fun! Looks like my next craft to learn might be using stamps in sewing!

  25. My favorite Scrappy craft projects are hot pads of different designs each time. A month doesn’t go by that I don’t make crafty gifts from bowl cozys, zippered pouches, key tags etc.

  26. I’ve made lots of baby bibs by embroidering terrycloth tea towels and making a round neck opening with ribbing. Moms like them because they are absorbent and difficult for babies to take off.

  27. I enjoy sewing utility items that are useful. I like making bags for carrying things like books and craft projects. And I am learning to embroider and digitize which I find very satisfying.

  28. I love sewing! Quilts are my current favorite but I enjoy doing all types of projects. From upcycling outdated clothes (dare I include repair) to cuddly toys for my grandkids.

  29. I love all the support, ideas and projects provided on the weallsew blog. I feel blessed to have Aurora Sewing Center, a local dealer in my backyard. Two years ago my Singer of 20 years broke and i decided to invest in a Bernina 350. Well fast forward to today, this wonderful little machine, weallsew, OESD, Bernina, and my local dealer helped me find my childhood passion for sewing again. So much so, I took the plunge last week and I am a proud owner of a Bernina 590. I look forward to exploring the “new” creative world of sewing/embroidery. Thank you Bernina for being an organization quality in all aspects of customer service and support.

  30. I love making quilts & am currently doing an on line sew along making my blocks 4” to improve my piecing skills.
    I have spent the past several weeks doing machine embroidery on old jeans then piecing them to make reusable grocery bags.
    I love my Bernina 770!

  31. I am just now learning how to sew. I’ve had my machine for awhile, but life got in the way. Because I am just learning now, I prefer easy crafts that I won’t have too much trouble with. Have to start somewhere!

  32. My favorite type of craft project is making items for my grandkids. Seasonal pillowcases, crayon holders, book bags, 12” by 12” pillows made from a favorite shirt that no longer fits, pencil zip pouches are some of the things I have made for them.

  33. My favorite sewing projects are anything I can get done in one day, such as bags, fabric containers, even quick quilts. I love immediate gratification 🙂

  34. Sewing garments once was my favorite type of sewing. Since I retired, clothing is not such a priority and I have been involved in any size of quilting project, from machine cover to king size bed quilt. Quilting is my favorite type of sewing project.

  35. I am a CPA and work for an amazing company in Providence, RI but my job is very stressful. I have found that quilting which I had never done before until a couple of years ago really helps me to relax. I come home at night and get a cup of tea and Duke (my corgi) and I go up to my sewing studio (which use to be my spare bedroom until a month ago) and create on my Bernina 790+ (which is a dream machine)!! I took and continue to take quilting classes to perfect my craft. I have also gotten back to cross stitching which I had done as a young girl.
    I love your fabrics and your company, my orders get to me so quickly so that I can always be in a constant state to creating. Thank you so much for Fat Quarter Shop and for helping us all be better crafters!!

  36. Celebrating National Craft month with weallsew and my “Sassy Stitchers” group and we are making Easter egg table decorations for our community’s first Easter dinner given by a wonderful group of volunteers in our community. Could sure use a few goodies to help in our project! Thanks for all the great Weallsew projects you share with us all! Happy today!!!

  37. My favorite craft is one that brings multiple things together. Such as sewing and embroidery plus embellishments…maybe that is why I like in the hoop or things like hand bags. I am a gadget geek so I like to use what I have. Thank you for all the fun things!

  38. I love making fun,useful things, like trivets with a matching Tea Cozy. I just found some cute sewing inspired fabric with retro items on it and I used it to make a trivet to set my teapot on and a Cozy to cover it to keep my tea warm. I also like to make zipper bags for my knitting friends with knitting inspired fabrics!

  39. I love making things for my grandkids. This year I am making them all book pillows for their birthdays. Any kind of crafts that I can make them makes me happy.

  40. I started sewing many years ago in high school and have sewn clothes, costumes, home decorations and have done all kinds of crafts for many years. I got my Bernina in November of last year. Since then, I have gotten really excited about embroidery, quilting and ALL of the things I can do with this awesome machine. I have 16 months until retirement and I can’t wait to have more time to play with all the things I love to do!

  41. Anything that is useful to hold things gets my vote for favorite craft: boxes, bowls, pouches… I made some of the triangle zipper pouches and love how quickly they sew up.

  42. I like to sew aprons, bags, and totes. I also do crossstitch and candlewicking. I would like to start doing more quilting. I just bought a Bernina 770 and plan to use it to make Christmas gifts.

  43. My favorite type of crafty sewing project is halloween outfits for my nieces and nephews (and now their kids)! The latest was making a 3 year old into a police dog so she could go out with her brother who was dressed as a policeman. It was fun creating the outfit and my neighbor gave me a real policeman patch to put on the k-9 vest.

  44. My favorite is making things for my grandchildren like fabric books, Halloween treat bags and quilts. I recently made zippered pouches, first time doing a zipper, and really enjoyed it. I don’t know why I waited so long to try them.

  45. I like a variety of project types, sewing, quilting and papercrafting with my BERNINA. My favorites are smaller projects. I guess the satisfaction of completing something rather quickly keeps me excited to do the next project.

  46. My favorite crafty sewing project would have to be quilts. I do enjoy sewing pincushions and other small projects but quilts are by far my favorite!

  47. I enjoy quilting projects; whether full size quilt projects or smaller items. I have a 770QE and still learning all the wonderful functions of this great machine.

  48. I enjoy doing a wide variety of crafts but sewing is my favorite. I found this website as I was searching for a spring wall hanging. I am very excited by all the ideas I see and can’t wait to start a new project!

  49. I like making special wall hangings which include applique, embroidery, and/or beading embelishments for family members birthdays or seasonal holidays.

  50. My favorite craft sewing project is to make a quilt totally from my scraps! I have tons and it is so much fun to select a design idea and color scheme and then just go at it. This type of “planned but not planned” project really brings out the best of my creative capabilities.

  51. I’ve been busy making needle books for my friends lately. I also made several of the scissor holders with the free pattern you offered. Thank you for the inspiration. Its fun to make small projects, because quilting takes so much time. Its a feeling of accomplishment to finish something quickly.

  52. My favorite craft is using my batik scraps into larger pieces and using that to make cute zipper bags or pin cushions. Reusing the small scraps and making something useful and fun is the best part. I like the triangle bag here and look forward to using those instructions this weekend!

  53. I have seven nieces, ranging from age 22 to 6 months. My favorite projects often are created specifically for gifting to these sweeties! Most recently, I transformed mesh zipper bags that I found at The Container Store into beautifully embroidered makeup bags for the older girls. Bright colored floss, some joyful flower patterns and the result was smiles all around. Next up: a handsewn felt pillow embroidered with the university logo for my niece who’s soon to be college-bound!

  54. My favorite type of crafty sewing project (besides making quilts) is the rib-neck, finger-tip towel baby bib with appliquéd or embroidered decor on the front. I must have made hundreds of them in my lifetime so far!

  55. I like making my own t-shirts with machine embroidery on them. I like coordinating them with matching fancy, embroidered, and embellished flannel shirts for wearing in the winter. In the summer, I like to pair them with coordinated capri pants or jeans.

  56. My favorite crafty sewing project is to create handbags of all types with fabric left over from making quilts.
    The fabrics determine the size, shape, and ‘mood’ of each handbag.

  57. Hot Pads have been my go to projects, but I am interested in trying some of the zipper bags–a small one would be great for my Wonder Clips
    bjkaup(at)(abbnebraska)(dot)(com)

  58. I’ve been working my way back into sewing and quilting by making different bags and totes using colorful fabrics and zippers. Who knew zippers could be fun?

  59. I am relearning sewing. I have MS and has left my left side compromised. I am starting slowly learning to sew one handed. These projects look to be a challenge but maybe, hopefully not impossible. Having everything I need would be the first hurdle to get started. What a nice selection of small projects. I would hope to use some as gifts since shopping is now a difficult task. Thank you

  60. I recently have had lots of fun making doll clothes for the grandaughter’s “Our Generation” dolls, so many cute patterns and possibilities for embellishing on my Bernina machines!

  61. Currently, I am so anxious for spring, I am making spring banners and wall hangings. When I feel a bit overwhelmed and don’t know what to work on, I make a rope bowl or two and find the peace that comes with creating.

  62. I love making the scissor holders, mug rugs, and the zipper pouches. I also like making mats that can turn into dust covers for your sewing machine…. I great way to practice free motion quilting!

  63. My husband gifted me a Bernina when we got married. I love my machine. For holidays he buys me new feet and other attachment toys from Paula’s Fine Fabrics in Jacksonville Florida. The store keeps a good record of what you have. I love him for it!
    What is your favorite type of crafty sewing project? I love to try new things, but I like making bags, purses and tea towels that I can share with my mother. I often make matching things for the two of us. I also make a number of practical things for around the house such as chair covers, curtains, kitchen items. I can’t forget that I also sew for my dog! I made him a dog bed, a dog cage cover and of course dog bling! It’s hard to say I have one favorite thing because I make what makes me happy and is what counts!

  64. I love doing Hawai’ian hand quilting, from hot pads to pillows to wall hangings to full size quilts, often adding decorative stitching to complement elements in the fabrics

  65. My favorite craft is quilting it has brought me peace at times when nothing else would. I have recently been introduced to cross stitching and have found a new love to bring me peace in troubled times.

  66. My favorite crafting project is Mug Rugs! They make great gifts to say “Thank You” to someone who has done something nice for me or my family. Also I gift them to various organizations to sell to raise money for various charitable events! As a quilter I have so many scraps and this is a great way to use the leftovers!

  67. My sewing room is my happy place. Since retiring recently, I rewarded myself by purchasing three new Bernina machines. The
    B770, B700 and a portable for classrooms, B335. I love trying all types of projects shown on the WeAllSew site. I have learned so much and my friends and family enjoy all of the hand made gifts they receive!

  68. My favorite craft is sewing and almost anything related to it: quilts, bags, in the hoop designs, pillowcases, etc!.
    I love it best when I have a project going on my multi needle while I am sewing on my 880+

  69. I’m a new Bernina user (Sept 2019) and am really enjoying Jelly Roll rugs in all their many fabric combinations. I am eager to try the “Tidy Tray” from the list of patterns above….and maybe the “Little Scissors Case.” I’m so excited to have this site to refer to!

    Happy Crafting!!

  70. In between making regular throws and quilts, I enjoy making small things like pillows, tote bags, microwave cozies, and while watching tv I do counted cross stitch. I’m busy most of the time! 🙂

  71. This was such a fun newsletter! I tried making several of the “ in an evening” projects, but my favorite one is the scissor holder. The directions with the pictures and the accurate pattern made creating it easy. I’m making more to give as beautiful gifts.
    My favorite type of crafty sewing project is making bags using fun fabric and/or embellishments!

  72. My favorite crafty project is creating Halloween costumes with extra special effects like lights or a head piece that looks like t-rex jaws. Attaching macaroni to a cheesy yellow jump suit for Mac and cheese was fun as well as a hotdog with m&k..

  73. I really enjoy making personalized cosmetic bags and mug rugs as gifts. That is inexpensive and funcional, people know that it is especially made thinking on them.

  74. I have done some rope coasters and small bowls like the ones pictured above. Now I want to try some bigger bowls. At first I was going to do the fabric-wrapped rope projects, but I was in a hurry to get a gift done and had seen plain rope used on a “Sewing With Nancy” episode. So I just jumped in and I like the look of the plain rope. I will probably try the wrapped rope method eventually, especiallly if I find some fabric that I am not in love with. It’s surprising how seemingly ugly fabric becomes less so when stripped down and used in smaller doses.

  75. My favorite Crafty projects:
    1) making coasters using cork. Pickle Pie designs has “in the hoop” coaster design pack. So much Fun!
    2) making coasters using cotton cording wrapped in fabric sewing zig zag stitch to secure.
    3) Locker hook rug making – I use fabric strips 3/4″ – 1/18″ wide and cotton rug canvas to weave fabric to top of canvas and pull through yarn to hold woven loops to the top of the canvas. It creates very durable rugs – fun, unique and uses up scraps!!

  76. I love all kinds of crafts from making quilts to embroidery. It makes the day a little more fun after working on prom or wedding gowns to work in some kind of a craft project. It helps me sleep a little better because the stress goes away working on crafts. Thanks for all of the great ideas!!

  77. I love to sew small projects such as catch-all treys or mini quilts/mug rugs. Anything to sew and quilt. All time favorite is a small zippered pouch!

  78. I love trying new projects. Almost everyone I know, now has a quilt. I made luggage tags for everyone at Thanksgiving, and with my first Grandchild on the way I can’t wait to try new gifts for the little one!

  79. When I’m not working on quilts, I can be found making square fabric containers for my grandson to hold some of his many, many toy cars. I’d like to find the time to do more storage containers. I have waaaaay too much junk and not nearly enough places to put it all. 🙂 (Story of my life!!) 🙂

  80. My current favorite crafty project is making table runners and round table toppers – I just learned how to do these and they are definitely fun! I also love to quilt, which is probably why I like the above mentioned projects because I always quilt them. Sew much to learn!

  81. My very favorite craft project is making tote bags. It always takes me longer to make a tote bag because I always have to add extras not called for in the pattern. Of course ,there has to be a zippered pocket on the inside, and then an open pocket on the inside, to hold a cell phone or whatever. And lastly a cord with a piece on the end to hold car keys! And the bag must have a zippered closure, even if the pattern calls for an open tote bag. But, when I get done with a tote bag, it is much more useful. My Bernina 790B Plus goes a long way to making the bag turn out great!

  82. I am returning to the hobby of learning to sew, again. Any craft I have managed to complete has been my favorite as a new beginner. I am privileged to have classes at a local dealer which are very close to my home. This has enabled me to have lots of help with my questions and concerns. I have quilted; made my own pocketbook; embroidered and completed several tissue holders for pocketbooks and attended a 2 day spring event. Leaning along with others and having great instructors has been very beneficial. I want to make more table runners and gifts that I can make for myself and others.
