Quick Stuff to Sew magazine & win one!


Just a ‘quick’ post while I write a more thorough one on my weekend watching the judging at Quilt National.

As you may have seen in last Christmas’ post, I made dozens of mittens from recycled sweaters that I felted. I sent the directions into Threads magazine with many samples for photography this summer. Yesterday I got the finished issue and found that I had the BACK COVER!!

It should be on newsstands soon so pick up a copy. Lots of interesting projects to make for yourself or as gifts. My Koos loop scarf is also in there too….a fabulous fast gift to make!


Leave a comment on some projects you’d like to see in next issue and I’ll select a winner for a free copy of this magazine on Oct. 6! But please leave your email address so I can contact you.


  1. First, I want to say I've made several short versions of the Koos scarf, so thanks for that! Your mittens look so cute!

    Hmm... How about a simple wrap with different ways to wear it? I even have a simple idea, but I bet there are much better ideas.

  2. Oops, I can be reached at toofunny2 at gmail.

  3. Always looking for interesting homemade ornaments.

  4. I haven't had the pleasure of reading this magazine as of yet. I'll sure have to keep my eye out for this issue at the newsstand!

  5. I love your mittens - great idea for recycling!!! This is another magazine that I can't get in my home town... would love to win a copy - thanks for the chance!

  6. I'm not familiar with magazine but any time of quilty craft I enjoy!

  7. I've never heard of this magazine before!
    How about a cowl? The weather is turning cooler here and a cowl would be perfect!

  8. Both the mittens and the scarf are great ideas! I will watch for this on local newsstands. I don't know if I can wait until Oct 6, but just in case, I can be reached at martha dot myers at gmail dot com. Thanks! Martha

  9. The mittens are so cute, can't wait to give them a try.

  10. How about hats, belts, cape/wraps, aprons? I love the scarf and mittens, would love to give them a try someday.
