Threading Your Way ~ Features...

This week's features  - (all have been Pinned)...

A super cool idea, added to the Softies, Dolls & Toys link party...

Dry Erase Colouring Placemat ~ Tutorial by Deby, from So Sew Easy

Deby has just released a new pattern... Sew Simple Leggings for real women. The free tutorial to draft your own is still available, but I've just bought the pattern tonight. At only $2.95, I'd rather have Deby do all the hard work! Now I just need to find the time to make them. 

A stunning quilt, added to the Quilting & Patchwork link party...

The New Zealand Bird Quilt by Juliet, from Tartankiwi

Juliet designed all the New Zealand bird blocks herself. If you are into Foundation Paper Piecing, a visit to Tartankiwi is a must. If you've never done any paper piecing, you just might change your mind after seeing all the designs available, many of them free. My second ever paper piecing project was testing one of Juliet's patterns. 

A rarely sewn garment, added to the Menswear link party. 

I Made Underwear by Ashley, from Ever Green Living

Great job, Ashley, successfully sewing a garment most of us have never attempted!!! This is only the ninth project added to the Menswear collection. We don't seem to sew much for the men in our lives! 

An awesome tote bag, added to the Bags & Totes link party. This is a very clever way to upcycle a pair of trousers and a tea towel.

Tetris Tote Bag Tutorial by Julia, from Sum of their Stories

A very flattering tunic, added to the Dresses for Women link party...

Peplum Zippered Tunic by Diya, from The Hobby Harbor

Diya hosts the Sew Book Inspired ongoing link party; a link party specifically for projects sewn using a sewing book.

A great pair of pants, added to the Shorts, Pants, Leggings & Trousers link party, the Boys' Clothes link party and the Sewing with Stretch Fabric link party. This looks like one of those good staple patterns.

Basic Knit Pants and Shorts by Amy, from Sews N Bows

And an adorable dress, added to the Dresses for Girls link party...

Gracie Dress Tutorial by Lindsay, from PA Country Crafts

Lindsay made five dresses for Easter, each of them made from a vintage sheet. This is the fourth tutorial of those five dresses.

Head on over and visit these talented ladies.

  1. What great features! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  2. Thanks for featuring my series Pam :) Just hope it reaches out to many people.

  3. Here's a sentence I never thought I'd say (or type) - I can't decide whether the underwear or the quilt are (is?) my favourite project ... LOL!

  4. They're all fantastic!

  5. Thanks for the feature Pam. The bird quilt was a complete labour of love :-)

  6. Juliet' s quilt is fabulous! Great roundup as ever Pam.

  7. Thank you so much for including my bag, you get such a lot of completely amazing projects linked up here I really do feel honoured that you have picked mine. I love your ongoing link ups, SO many fantastic projects, bucket loads of inspiration.

  8. I totally agree with you when you say we hardly sew for men. It's true, and maybe it's because my husband only likes certain styles and doesn't like me coming up with a garment for him that has different prints on it. He's okay with me repairing his clothes though :-)

  9. Great features. I must say I do like the bright colors of the Tetris bag!

  10. Great features! Gotta check them now.
