Because sometimes you just gotta get your quilty craft on and make something.

SewModMakes is your online boutique for handcrafted items designed by a variety of artists.

We all Need2Create & I am blessed to be surrounded by many talented friends & family members who have joined me to share their handcrafted items in this shop.

Alpine Wonderland quilt

We specialize in hand embroidery, crocheted items, quilts and yoga accessories. You’ll also find some of our shop samples there too.  We love to sew and craft and being creative for us is a way to express ourselves, reconnect with our creative spirit & share it with you.

Pick a bunch quilt

Look for more craftiness coming soon. Check out the site and our about page for more details and let us know what you think!

I knew when I was cutting all my scraps into useable pieces that one day I would be glad I did all of that work. That day came when I decided to make The Color Book.

It takes 2-1/2″ squares for the pages, which is exactly what some of my smaller scraps were cut into, so you can imagine how easy it was to get this project going. I think I spent the most time on deciding which 2-1/2″ square to use.

Batting scraps in between the pages make it soft and flexible for baby. A little hand stitching and a pieced log cabin cover to finish it up and you have a handmade, unique gift for baby’s Christmas.

This is one of the many fun and inspiring projects that come from 101 Projects Patchwork & Quilts magazine, which is available at your local craft or bookstore. You won’t be disappointed in this girls! It’s often rare you find a magazine that has more than a couple of ideas you might make in it, but this one is loaded with them! And if you notice by the front cover, there are lot’s of opportunities to use your scraps!


Only a couple more pics from the booth to go.

Another one of our good friends took on the sample of Madeline.

She did a great job of picking the fabrics out for this to be oh, so girly. But, I already knew she would. She has a great eye for those things. The background is Art gallery’s Oval Elements in Petal Pink. The dress is out of the Taza fabric line.

The quilt can be made into a wall hanging or framed without it’s border. I think it’s adorable framed! It reminds me of  pink bubblegum.

We found the pattern for these awesome needle cases over at SewPrimKhris’s blog and our friend Kelly whipped them up for us. They came out sooo cute. Just some scraps, felt, Velcro and a button. Great gifts for all your sewing friends. Each segment in the needle case could even be labeled for each needle size. I’m always getting mine mixed up.

Last is the Hoo Blankie. It has a Minkie backing for the cuddly, snuggle factor and a yard of fabric for the front. Easy, breezy blankie and it comes with a free pattern.

This quilt!

We used the Riley Blake, Hoo’s In The Forest, fabric to make this super easy baby quilt. A charm pack, a few yards of fabric, throw in some appliqued cuteness, & a couple hours of sewing and you’ve got an adorable keepsake!

I appliqued strawberries in one corner and a sweet little owl in the other.

Paige designed SewMod labels for all our handmade items. The are just printed on this fabric paper we found at the craft store.

I used pinking shears to trim the edges and sewed it right into the binding.

This is a really inexpensive and easy quilt. The kit is available for $29 and that includes the backing and binding. It’s available in 3 colorways, yellow, blue, and pink. This quilt is going to be part of our booth at the show but also will be available in our new store coming soon on Etsy …

This shop will be dedicated to handmade baby items, fabric and patterns. We’re pretty excited about launching this as part of SewMod! We have sooo many things going on, my head is spinning!!
