I have to admit that it took too long to create Episode Two of Creating & Conversation, a video blog. When I tell you technology failed many times I mean it. I had two separate videos in which I recorded, however, before the editing phrase could take place I realized there was no volume. NO VOLUME. I decided I was unhappy with the video after I realized the no volume situation. Then decided to revamp the entire Creating & Conversation experience. Through it all, I am confident in bringing you seven full episodes within this series of Creating & Conversation. The future episodes will not take as long to compose. I am extremely focused and this WILL happen regardless of the distractions of life.
In this episode I compose a no-sew bow choker and bracelet set and impose a conversational tidbit about being thankful. Click here to watch on Youtube. I actually fell in love with these accessories after making them. I had these fabric remnant pieces from a project I completed a few years ago. I found the elastic pieces at a local store for less than two dollas. This set cost me about three dollars in all for my budget savvy shoppers out there.
Thankfulness is extremely important. There are so many little snippets of life to be in thanksgiving. In summary, end the complaining and increase the thankfulness regardless of the situation. I challenge you to remain in this place and watch your life change for the better.

The time has come for the start of a new video series entitled, “Creating & Conversation.” Check out the preview video of this new video series below.
I have been wanting to compose a Do-It-Yourself show full of accessory creations and conversation for a while, however, personal distractions put it on hold. So I am asserting myself in this new season to new results and expectations. Check out Episode 1 below as I create a pretty-in-pink infinity scarf and chat of this new season. Eventually guests will join the show but until then there will be great conversation with ME. As I give you a window into my world I hope you enjoy every minute of it.

It’s been a while since I’ve wrote a blog post. With life happening everyday sometimes it can be difficult to sit down and write with a clear head. I had a few fans request a video detailing the stitch functions of the KENMORE 385 sewing machine. You may view the video here.
More videos to come in the future. If you have not viewed the Basic sewing machine tutorial of the KENMORE 385 we created please view here.
Let us know how we are doing by leaving a short comment.
I am so excited about our last completed project. We cut and constructed emoji pillows. This was the first sewing project for the beginner sewing class I am teaching at a local high school. The students enjoyed planning and creating the face of the emoji. Some had difficulty sewing the pillow by machine so they completed a hand-sewn pillow.
In order to create this pillow you will need:
1/2 yard of yellow felt fabric
1/4 yard of black, red and white felt
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Copy Paper for pattern
Pillow foam stuffing
Spool of thread
Colored pencil or pen
Once you have all of your supplies, locate a circle of your choice. Trace onto copy paper for pattern. Use a trash can or a circle you may find around your house. Transfer the copy paper circle to fabric using a pen or colored pencil. Cut two circles.
Next locate your Emoji face of choice using online technology. Trace onto copy paper. The easiest way to do this is to place copy paper atop of a desktop computer and trace. Transfer the emoji face to copy paper using pen or pencil of choice. Place the copy paper on top of the desktop screen and trace. Cut out and transfer the pattern to the felt fabric using a pen or colored pencil. Cut out the felt Emoji face.
Use a hot glue gun to glue the face in the center of the yellow felt circle. Place right sides together of Emoji faced circle and other yellow circle. Hand sew or machine stitch the circles leaving an opening for turning the pillow inside out.
Clip curves and turn pillow inside out. Add pillow foam to the inside until full. Use needle and thread to close opening in pillow. Voila! Emoji success!
