My quilting laboratory is stocked with all sorts of spooky specimens, thanks to Tula Pink’s De La Luna fabric. Time to make a Halloween jar quilt! I use my mini rotary cutter, the Shark Applicutter, to fussy cut creepy apothecary jars filled with eyeballs, skeletons, bugs, and bats. This is a super fun project with tons of room for creativity, so let your imagination run wild as you concoct this spine-chilling quilt!
Hop into a time machine and travel back 400 million years. You won’t find humans or even dinosaurs that far back, but you will find sharks. Why have they lasted so long? Probably because they’re totally rad. Sharks have up to 3,000 razor-sharp teeth at a time, and when one falls out, it can be replaced in as little as one day. Their senses – sight, smell, and hearing – are insanely powerful, and they can even detect the electric charge of other living creatures. They never stop swimming and they never really sleep, they just cruise through life like the undisputed kings of theRead More →
Picture this: You’re at the beach. All your gear is stashed in a super cool Ballistic Beach Bag – towel, sunscreen, phone, snacks – everything you need for a day of fun in the sun. But without a little organization, that big tote can turn into a black hole that eats your keys and chapstick right when you need them most. You need a zippered pouch to keep your stuff in check! My Boxed Zipper Pouch is well constructed with a durable lining and boxed corners. (And it’s pretty darn handsome with that shiny brass zipper and metallic print canvas.) Fill it with sewing supplies,Read More →
My kids and I love being creative together. We often spend time hiking, playing music, building with LEGO bricks, and, of course, creating in my sewing studio. Sometimes we even get a little silly! This project will delight the inner child in you and may even inspire you to do something out of the ordinary. Have you ever wanted to add a dapper touch to your wardrobe? Create a fun bow tie to add that extra something. Then, go even bigger and make it clown-sized for even more excitement! Being the guy I am, I got a bit carried away and created an extra largeRead More →

If you build fires, you probably start out with a carefully structured stack of wood. It can be a teepee, a log cabin, or even a star. But no matter how orderly, it’s only a matter of time before those burning logs crumble into a mess of glowing embers. The Embers Quilt is a random patchwork of charcoal and orange that imitates the intricate details of a dying fire. And though it looks a bit complicated, it’s nothing more than chopped up strips sets. Click HERE to watch the tutorial and print the FREE PDF!
The razor. The floss. The beard brush and moustache wax. Guys need their grooming gear, even on the road – and it needs to be organized and accessible. (A loose toothbrush rolling around the bottom of your duffle bag isn’t going to cut it.) My Travel Shave Bag has compartments and zippered pockets designed to fit everything you need to look your best. It folds into a small, tidy package for easy transportation. When you arrive at your destination, open and hang it for quick access.
They say there are no shortcuts. If you want to become a world-class surfer, you’ve got to hit those waves on a daily basis. To obtain massive biceps, you’ve basically got to live at the gym. And to grow the ultimate lumberjack beard, get ready for the long road of whisker growing ahead. Cool stuff just takes time…usually. But if you’re itchin’ to put together a tumbling blocks quilt, I’ve got news for you: It doesn’t have to take forever, and it doesn’t have to be difficult. My 3D Tumblers quilt comes together quickly with strip sets and NO tricky Y seams. Plus I’ve addedRead More →
