Little girls' skirts are one of the easiest garment projects to tackle. The fit is forgiving, thanks to the elastic waist that many are made with and the length is easy to adapt. Today I'm sharing twenty eight awesome tutorials from the Skirts for Girls collection, here at Threading My Way. Each tutorial contains step by step detailed instructions, with lots of photos, showing how you can make a skirt for a little girl in your life.

Earlier this year I showed you how I store my buttons. That post generated a lot of interest. Seems like we're all looking for the most efficient ways to store the bits and pieces we collect in our sewing adventures. We want the solutions to not only look good, but to also be practical. And we don't want it to really appear like we have a large stash of anything sewing related!!!
Today I'm showcasing Threading My Way readers' button storage ideas.

Nothing beats trying clothes onto the recipient during the sewing process. However, this is not always possible. They might not be around or they simply might not want to co-operate. I've designed a template so you can record the measurements of the children you sew for, as a handy reference.

Refashioning saves money and is great for the environment, but it's also a wonderful creative outlet, that produces one of a kind projects, garments and works of art. My most creative refashions are the ones where I can still see something of the original in the new creation.

Scarves are a must have accessory in any woman's wardrobe. Well, they are in mine. I use them for adding warmth, but also as a way of dressing up an outfit. A scarf is an accessory that can add a bit of colour or totally change the look of the outfit you are wearing.

What's the best age to teach kids to sew? What age can you start to let your little one use a sewing machine? I'm not sure that there's any hard and fast rules, but Little Miss used my sewing machine the other day, so I thought I'd show you how we went about it.
