It’s time to vote on another round of… “WHAT DO YOU WANT TO MAKE?”


Remember how in the past, I have polled you guys, to see what you’re most interested in making?  I realized I haven’t done that in such a loooooong time.  And well, it’s time.  I thought it would be fun to do before the baby arrives this summer.  And well, I actually get a kick out of trying something I didn’t think of or necessarily need around my house.  But even more, I really love hearing what you all are itching to make.


Here are a couple projects that won in the past:


Fabric Dolls….oh, how I loved making these!



Fabric Boxes…..that work in so many different spaces.



(I swear there’s at least one more project I made from a popular vote here….but I can’t think of what it is.  Hmmm.)


Soooooo……..if you’re anything like me, you see something in a store, or online, or hmmmm, maybe at the neighbor’s house — and you love it.  But maybe you don’t love the price tag.  Or the fabric used.  So, you call a friend/sister/grandma/uncle and you ask them to help you figure it out.


I wish I could have you over and we could kinda dissect it together……but doing so here on this blog will have to do.  Deal?


In the past, I have shared a few things from around the web, to kinda get your ideas rolling…..but please, don’t limit yourselves to the image I share here.  Leave a comment (with a link) to something you’ve been dying to make.  And then I’ll pull ideas from the comments from this post and create a poll that includes the most popular ideas that you guys can vote on.  Whatever item gets the most votes, wins.  And then I’ll try and pick it apart and share how to make it.  Well, that is, if I think that I can make it.  Ha!  But if I can’t, I’ll tweak it a bit until it makes sense in my brain…..and then I’ll share. 


Sound fun?  Okay, do tell…..what are you just dying to make?!!!


Need some ideas?



Girl dresses are always fun to sew.  Are you itching to try a new style?

Or maybe you’ve been dying to make some new bedding…..and aren’t quite sure how to tackle it.

Oh wait……I know you want to make something for you.  Maxi anyone?

Or yeah, maybe you need some new sort of window treatment to make your living space pop.

Or hmmmmmm……..a new purse or tote?

Okay, or maybe you want to make something really fun and playful like a play space for your kids/grandkids…

If one of the above images wins for you……tell me in the comments.  If you’d rather make something different or have another idea you’d like to add, leave a comment.  Chances are, others will love it too.  (And if you see someone else’s idea in the comments and you’d really like to make that too, reply to that comment and chime in with a “me too!”.  Then I’ll see that many like the same item.)


Okay……let’s see what you have stewing around in that brain of yours.  Can’t wait…..I LOVE this! :)


Talk to you soon!
