The Ultimate Pinterest Party Week 168

Another weekend is almost here! Oh how nice it is to relax and spend time with family and friends! What fun plans do you have this weekend? As for us, I will be having a girls' night on Friday, a visit to the farmers market to buy some colorful heirloom tomatoes, then the weekend is filled with watching LDS General Conference (you can watch online here). I will also definitely make time to check out the great pins that are added to this link party too!

National Sewing Month - Sewing Supply Giveaway

With September being National Sewing Month, I thought it would be fun to host a giveaway for sewing supplies that you, my wonderful readers, will love! Celebrate National Sewing Month with me and enter to win sewing supplies you can use for so many different projects.

This year for National Sewing Month, I have shared 15+ Fat Quarter Sewing Projects that are fun and cute, a list of some of my favorite Sewing Books, and a look at the Art of Quiltmaking.

The Art of Quilting

There are so many different ways to practice your own creativity, and just as many ways to enjoy the art that others envision and produce. One beautiful creative outlet is quilting. Stitching lovely fabrics together to make a soft and comforting quilt in a design that is eye pleasing takes a lot of time and talent.

I love to look at quilts and can appreciate the talent of those who take the time to make quilts. I have made simple baby quilts for my children that are made up of squares and rectangles, but hope to one day be able to sew more detailed quilts.

The Ultimate Pinterest Party Week 167

Happy First Day of Fall! The leaves are beginning to change colors, the weather has gotten cooler, and it's been cloudy for the past few days. Perfect for bundling up in sweaters, curling up under a blanket to read, and finding ideas for tasty fall recipes and crafts!

15+ Fat Quarter Sewing Projects

Do you have a few fat quarters in your fabric stash that you want to use? These fabulous project tutorials will make sewing with your fat quarter fun!

Each time I go to the fabric store I buy a fat quarter, or two, to add to my ever-growing stash of fabric. There is something about those colorful little rectangles of cute fabric that are hard to pass by without adding a few to your cart.

I thought a great way to celebrate National Sewing Month would be to share some easy and fun sewing projects that you can make with fat quarters. I hope you find a few that you want to try to make!

Sewing Books You Will Love

Sewing is a relaxing and creative hobby. You start with beautiful, colorful, and soft fabrics and end up with a finished piece that can bring so much happiness to whomever receives it.

Whether you are a beginner at sewing or have experience, it's always exciting to find inspiration for a new project to sew. I am sharing sewing books you will love that have all kinds of projects, tips, and advice for your next sewing project.

Thank Goodness It's Friday! I'm sure I'm not the only one excited for the weekend to be starting soon! I hope your weekend is packed with fulfilling activities.

The Ultimate Pinterest Party Week 164

Happy Friday and the beginning of September! I'm looking forward to a wonderful month full of cooler weather, a trip up the canyon to see the leaves changing color, and family picnics on the weekend! What are you excited for in September?

Lately on Home Crafts by Ali

It's been a bit quiet here on the blog. I've been taking care of a family member who had surgery last month, getting back into the swing of school for the kids, and making some big plans for posts in the coming weeks. September is National Sewing Month, so be on the lookout for some fun projects that I will be sharing!
  • For the beginner sewist, you need a project that is easy and quick to complete. This pillowcase tutorial will be done in 10 minutes and you will have the confidence to try other projects!
  • Sometimes it's nice to get a little break and have one-on-one time with that special person in your life. I had a lovely local weekend getaway (isn't the door at the bed and breakfast beautiful!) and will be sharing the best places to go in Provo with you soon!
