When winter refuses to lose its grip on the weather in northern climes or when an impending fall seems chillier than expected southernmost, sewing projects made with fleece fabric seems a great compromise to using heaver woolen materials for outdoor wear.
Sewing for a College Dorm Room

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. Patrickís Day is viewed by many as a harbinger of spring as well.
What are idioms and how are they connected to the process of sewing? An idiom is a figure of speech, in any language, whose symbolic or intended meaning is different from the actual meaning of the individual words themselves. A stitch in time, saves nine is a familiar idiomatic phrase.
A small compact travel sewing kit with a variety of sewing notions can come to the rescue for most fashion mishaps. Commonplace sewing kits are prosaic reminders of the nuts and bolts of sewing.
