QuickStuff to Sew Winter 2012

 The winter 2012 issue of Quick Stuff to Sew:  25 Fast & Fun Projects is now on sale on magazine racks and online at  The magazine is great because the projects are beautiful, useful and easy to sew.  Clothing, accessories, and home decor projects are featured.  See page 18 for the article 'Quick Pleats:  Sew a designer-inspired skirt from pleated fabric panels.'  I had so much fun creating the skirt, writing and working with the magazine editors.  I cannot reprint the article on this website but I want you to know the magazine is available.

A recent Nine West boot ad features a hip pleated skirt (photo below).  The skirt has crystals heat fixed to the top of the skirt to imply a tiered belt.  Embellishment is on trend this winter so consider trying this on a pleated skirt or garment you already own.  You can purchase similar crystals at  Happy sewing!
