Two Scarf Wrap
Sometimes two identical scarves are just waiting for you to buy, take home, and sew only two seams. As Bobbie Jo can attest, the end wrap is delightful to wear! Watch All Occasion Fabric Wraps (Part One and Part Two) on Sewing With Nancy online.
Tumbler Flag Quilt designed by Linda Coon
Sewing With Nancy viewers often email photos of their creative works. Nancy’s team loves seeing what you create! The image of the Tumbler Flag Quilt caught our attention and we knew you’d like to see it too. It was designed and made by Linda Coon from Louisiana, who caught the quilting bug a few years ago and hasn’t stop quilting. Linda agreed to share her quilting tutorial.

Simple to Chic T-Shirt Remakes
Knit tops are a wardrobe basic; most of us live in them. After awhile, the style can get, well, boring! Welcome to Simple to Chic T-Shirt Remakes with Eileen Roche, a Sewing With Nancy 2-part TV series. Watch online or on PBS. During this first episode, learn how to transform the common knit shirt into a fresh and smart-looking fashion. Embroidery machine designs are the key to adding embellishment and also the neckline transformation. It’s rather marvelous how it all happens.

Shirt Sleeve Gift Bag
They’ll call you clever when you arrive with a gift in this unique bag. Make a bag handle from another piece of the shirt, or use a shirt collar for the handle. The rust colored bag handle is a piece of the shirt placket. Check your closets for potential “fabric” for Sew Green Makeovers by Mary Mulari.

Her comment is: Wow. This would be great for beginning 4-H sewers and for my granddaughter. I would probably start with the star skirt, because it is similar to the first year 4-H elastic waist skirt project.
