Do you know a girl who is crazy about unicorns? My daughter is obsessed, but she can't be the only one. Everywhere I look, there is something with a unicorn on it.
With my daughter's birthday and Christmas around the corner, I'm looking for the perfect unicorn gift. But just buying unicorn wall art or toy only brings joy for a short while, and then my daughter gets bored.
Today's my turn in the George + Ginger Festival Fever blog tour. The theme celebrates all summer festivals, from music to food. But where I live, there are no summer festivals. In fact, it's so stinking hot most people leave for as much of summer as possible. I decided to sew something that celebrates my love of sewing. Here is the Super Sleeve Top pattern from George + Ginger with fun sewing-themed details.
As the weather warms up, it's time to hit the beach or pool. These beach cover up sewing patterns are perfect for throwing on when walking to the beach or pool (or while you're chasing a child along the sand). They're also great for keeping the sun off your shoulders while you're not in the water.
Buying sewing patterns for clothes for my daughter is getting difficult. Although she's only 7, in most patterns her chest and waist measurements are 10 or 12 (and her height is an 8). Lots of patterns for girls only go up to size 10 or 12 (and sometimes less!), so I'm nervous to buy a sewing pattern that she won't fit in very long.
It can be so hard to find sewing patterns for men, and I haven't shared many men's patterns on the Threadistry blog. But it's time to change that, and I've set a goal to share sewing patterns for men at least once a month, starting with men's hoodie sewing patterns.
From zip-ups to pullovers, there are some great hoodie patterns for men out there, perfect for throwing on when the temperature drops in the evening or layer to stay warm on a winter's day.

While there are a million and one things you can buy someone who sews, it's hard to know what they want. Sending them to the craft store with a list can be intimidating to the non-sewer. Sewing craft kits make a great gift idea for sewists. A little package with the fabric and pattern for a project takes out all the stress and is a gift they're sure to love.
Now, craft kits may bring to mind two pieces of cut out felt, some yarn and a plastic needle, but there are sewing kits designed for adults too. With Mother's Day is right around the corner, here are some adorable sewing craft kits:
When I was a kid, sloths were just slow lazy animals from the other side of the world. Thanks to the internet and social media, I've discovered the cute, smiley face of sloths and just how cute baby sloths can be. So why not sew your own sloth with this collection of sloth sewing patterns!
