As of right now, I’ve added hand dyed wool felt to Muse of the Morning’s product line! I’ve been working on this for a while and now I’m really excited to offer felt for sale.
Wool felt is amazing to work with and so much better quality than the alternatives. I’ve always enjoyed dyeing, and I love creating with felt, so now I am bringing the two together.
You’ll find the felt here in my etsy shoppe. I plan on having a lot more colors in the near future, and I will be developing kits for stuffies and fun things to create with felt very soon!
What are some things you love to create from wool felt? What kind of kits would you love to see?
I’ve been busy working on lots of curriculum stuff lately – not so much on sewing.
Come on over and check out these posts!
This is a re-post- it was originally posted on TeachLearnImagine, but since I’m phasing that site out, I moved it here:
Make a Personal Timeline Pull-Out Book

Head over to the Homeschool Section to check out my newest post with lots of ideas for art activities to fit any theme that you might be working on. I hope you’ll take a look!

I haven’t mentioned them yet because I don’t have a ton of content up yet, but I started a special section on the site just for all the homeschool stuff that I create and put together. It had originally been a totally different site, but I really do want to keep all the stuff I do consolidated over here.
Anyway- I just put up some Recipe Card Notebooking Pages that might come in handy this holiday season. Lil’Miss is using them to create a gift of a recipe book for someone- so go check them out – and check out the homeschool section!

Gathering is an important skill to know in sewing. BUT. It can be tedious, especially when working with lots of fabric. I’ve rounded up some awesome posts with tutorials and tips on gathering.
Prudent Baby shows us the classic method, or “right way” to gather fabric with a sewing machine.
Of course, gathering was done before there were sewing machines as well! MADE shows us two ways to gather fabric- the first being the old-fashioned method and the second, a method I’ve never seen before. It sounds intriguing though, so I might have to try it.
Another method that I’ve read about, but never tried is this: zig zag over a length of dental floss to create gathers. Threads Magazine shares this tutorial. You can also use some thin crochet thread if you don’t have floss.
If you have a serger, gathering is a cinch. Check out this tutorial from the Seasoned Homemaker. I’ve found that the tighter my needle tension is, the tighter the ruffles.
Which is your favorite method for gathering? Or do you know of another technique? I’d love to hear about it!
