PennyDog Vlog #7 – July 22nd 2017

I’ve finished all the blocks on the Bear in the Log Cabin quilt, and I give you an honest look at sewing the sashing, why I decided I needed to use pins for this top, my choices for backing and batting and thread. Hank makes a guest appearance and a reminder… If you subscribe to […]

Satisfying

Isn’t shopping your stash great? I’m making this Nora bag by Swoon Patterns with supplies I already had – minus the interfacing and stabiliser that I had to buy. And the boning I bought a few weeks back. The bird fabric I bought at least 2 years ago, probably more than 3 years ago. It […]

PennyDog Vlog #6 – July 16th 2017

I thought this would be a good time to talk about bag making. I’m a bit scared because the week after this one I have to teach Blanche to a full class! Scary! I also talk about a couple of bag patterns I have, one of them is free! Other things I talk about with […]

Growing my Tutorials and Patterns

In addition to my weekly vlogs, I’ve been recording tutorial videos for my YouTube Channel (I’m getting better at filming, please subscribe). So far I have one on chain piecing and also I put one online today to demonstrate making flying geese. Apologies- I only just found widescreen on my new (to me, sadly not […]

PennyDog Vlog #5 – July 10th 2017

I missed this weekend’s vlog because I was at work for part of Saturday, then at a work do that I spent way too long at, then Sunday I wasn’t well as a result and we also went to the Stampede for a bit. Check out my Instagram @pennydog if you want to see some […]

Finish Along Q3

Ooh I almost forgot about the finish along for what would have been almost the entire year, but sneaking in under the deadline to share the WIPs I have that are most realistically going to be finished this quarter. There are more, but I think four is enough. This is Bear in the Log Cabin […]

PennyDog Vlog #4 – July 1st 2017

I missed last week due to work, outdoor activities and general sickness, but I’m back to briefly share what I’ve been up to this week. I think it might be a little bit out of focus- well I am, the fabric, etc not so much – so I plan to invest in an actual video […]

PennyDog Vlog #3 – June 18th 2017

I vlogged again! Just quickly…

Tutorial: How to Add Text to an Instagram Picture

For the destash, some of you might want to add ID numbers, or measurements to your fabric pictures. If that’s something you want to do, but you don’t know how, then you need to get a free app called MOLDIV. There are other apps out there too, but this works for me. Search for it […]

The Great Canadian Fabric Destash, June 26th 2017

A little while ago- OK two years ago- Chelsie Rosner on Instagram prompted a hashtag for destashing fabrics just within Canada – #thegreatcanadianfabricdestash This was in response to the general #thegreatfabricdestash which tended to be people in the US shipping only to people in the US, and so Canadian’s couldn’t buy all the great fabrics […]
