More Spring Sewing Ideas

Shibori Tie Dyeing
Shibori is a Japanese hand dyeing technique that involves folding, twisting or bunching cloth, binding it, then dyeing using an indigo dye.

Sewing Ideas for Springtime
As spring approaches, our sewing projects seem to take on this seasonal transition with more than a bit of whimsy. Decorated garden flags, fabric baskets with brightly colored straw and dyed eggs for Easter, stuffed bunnies everywhere and of course delicate wreaths for the front door.

Sewing Ideas for St. Patrick's Day
Wearing the color green on March 17th is a way to participate in St. Patrick's Day festivities and supposedly a way to not be pinched by a leprechaun! Green colors cannot be seen by the mischievous fairy-like beings of folklore. St. Patrick’s Day is viewed by many as a harbinger of spring as well.
