I love your tutorials, I am a brand new beginner in sewing and your videos are so amazingly easy to follow along with. Ty for making these easy to do projects. I can’t wait to see what you have next!
Thanks for the heart tutorial. I’m making these to give to an assisted living facility. I have my quilting friends and crafty friends make Valentines for the residents. I appreciate the free pattern.
How can I get the sew boxes
Hi Debbie, which sew boxes?
I love following along with you but I do have a question… My projects are NEVER the right size after I sew them. I have measured my seams and checked them over and over and they are always 1/4 inch and my fabrics are always the size that you tell me to use but for some reason I am always shy of the right size when the project is complete and I can’t trim up my blocks because if I do the points will be too close to the edge… I am doing something wrong with trimming up the blocks or something… any ideas to help me out?
Your blocks are always so beautiful.. note that I did just purchase the Mary Ellen’s best press to try that.. I have heard you mention spraying the fabrics with it before cutting in a couple of your videos… anyways… I want to buy some patterns eventually but I just can’t figure out why mine never match the right size so I am still practicing on the free stuff until I can learn what I am doing wrong… 🙂
Please keep posting videos… you are an inspiration to beginners like me and I absolutely love the projects I have made – a lot of bags and thanks to you… I know how to sew in zippers and how to make pockets now… which is so cool! They are just always a little wonky and smaller than they are supposed to be… plus, forget about FMQ… I can only straight stitch. I just can’t get it and I am beginning to contemplate changing out my sewing machine… I am using the Brother SQ9285 right now… I got it for Christmas a year ago…
Thanks so much for all you do!

These are darling. I’m making several. But I have a question…would it work to sew around the hearts after tracing, before cutting out? In stead of cutting then sewing? Seems like sewing first would be easier.
Love your crafts
