Hey Dana, wanted to let you know I tried to resubscribe through rss and when I click on it all I get is html, I got your post about the new url, but hadn’t gotten any since your vacay post in Google Reader. Sight looks beautiful though, I’ve always appreciated the rather clean lines, lets me focus on the crafts.


4 Megan January 15, 2012 at 10:17 am

So…I am a bit computer illiterate and can’t seem to figure out how to make it so that the new site shows up on my igoogle home page. Can you help?


5 aSprinkling January 15, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Just wanted to let you know that I’m also having trouble updating your site in my reader. When I try to subscribe to the new name, it tells me that I’m already subscribed. However, I am not getting the new posts.


6 Dianna January 16, 2012 at 10:06 pm

Help! I’ve followed you via my iGoogle and Yahoo front page, but it’s not updating now. I don’t see the same spot to click anywhere on here to set things up at your new address.


7 susana January 19, 2012 at 4:41 pm

Puedo suscribirme a su FANTÁSTICO blog por correo electrónico? yo también intente ponerla en mi pagina de inicio de Google ,debo hacer algo mal.No lo logro.
Feliz nuevo sitio!!


8 Jolen Hollingsworth January 20, 2012 at 12:46 am

Was searching for some upcycled project and came across something I knew I saw on your site but was posted with your pictures and full directions on another site… did list your name but no back link, it was for your warhol dress.


9 Gayle Martin January 24, 2012 at 11:08 pm

Don’t know what I’m doing wrong – tried to subscribe by email but it didn’t seem to work for me. HELP!


10 Kristine January 28, 2012 at 10:27 pm

I would love to get your emails/subscribe, but don’t find the button to do it.


11 MARTA February 4, 2012 at 3:05 am

Dear Dana, love your blog!
Im trying to make the shirt dress pattern, as I have to translate it in to centimeters measures I was redrawing the pattern with autocad, and I found out that when I try to put toguether on the drawing the sleeves with the dress it doesn´t work, so I redraw the sleeves and now it works! I would love to send you back the sleeves redrawn becouse they are quite different and the ones you give on the tutorial didn´t work.
How can I send you the pattern?
Thanks for your work and best regards!


12 Katy February 13, 2012 at 12:16 am

Your tutorial for making a simple skirt was great! I just completed my first one….Thanks. Katy


13 Heike Goldberg February 15, 2012 at 3:29 pm


I am from Germany and i want to write you some words. First all the best for you and the baby. I have also 3 children and itś fun but also hard work …
I found your site in the world wide web and its great (and i am absolutely an beginner). My daughter loves her circle skirt. Thank you.


14 Claire February 16, 2012 at 3:49 pm

Hi Dana!,
i just love your site en tutorials, i am finally understanding the magic of sewing! thank you so much for putting it on the i-net! Enjoy your new baby, hope to read and learn a lot of more your sewing trics.

Greetings Claire


15 shae February 20, 2012 at 12:26 pm

I too would like to follow your blog, is there a way to sign up so it’s dropped in my email? thanks!


16 silvia March 4, 2012 at 5:56 pm

Gracias,los tutoriales son tan claros y estan tan bien explicado con las fotos que he sido capaz de hacer ya varias faldas haciendo nada que he empezado a coser….y sin saber ingles!!!! jajajaja


17 Lisa York March 11, 2012 at 7:48 am

Hi Dana,
I can’t wait to try this.

Question: What kind of camera did you use to take your pictures? They are great. I have a Nikon D200 and my pictures are not this good. I use to have a Minolta that took great pictures. I am sure the Nikon would too if I knew how to use it.



18 Laura March 21, 2012 at 11:35 am

Saw this today and it reminded me of you.

I love celebrate the baby – great idea!


19 Valerie March 26, 2012 at 10:20 am

I have a delicious salsa recipe if you’d like to try it.

2 lbs. Roma Tomatoes, diced
1 Jalapeno, seeded and diced
1/4 Red Onion, diced or more if you like a lot of onions
2-3 Garlic Cloves, minced
1/2 Cup Cilantro, chopped
1/2 Cup Lime Juice, about 4 limes
1/2 Cup Vegetable Juice
Salt to Taste

Combine above and chill until you are ready to eat! So delicious and easy to make. You can eat it with chips or tacos….whatever! Enjoy and let me know if you like it.


20 annie March 29, 2012 at 12:12 pm

I am hainvg trouble sewing with elastic thread. I made the knit baithing suit cover up and it worked great, but i’m trying to use a cotton and it doesn’t gather near as well…nor does it seem very strong…I have tension at 4 or so and stitch length at 4. Do you think a straight or zig zag stitch is best??? Any advice appreciated!


21 Dana March 29, 2012 at 12:19 pm

Hmmm. I’ve never done it with a zigzag stitch. But I find that with cotton, the rows don’t really start to gather up as well till I’ve sewn about 4 of them. Have you sprayed it with water yet and ironed? That always helps the fabric gather up. Of course sewing with elastic thread is different in every single sewing machine. It’s not a sure bet and sometimes a bit experimental.


22 Bec April 5, 2012 at 6:01 pm

Hi Dana
I have only recently found your blog and i am hooked. l love it. l love how you explain everything so non sewers like myself can actually understand. l have made so many things from your tutorials and they have all worked, Yippeee. l run to my emails every day to see what you have done next.
Keep up the amazing work.


23 Gianetta Cline April 9, 2012 at 8:02 am

Wish you would make a pattern of this baby jumper on julies blog. baby jumper.
When my girls were little, 50 years ago, these jumpers/sunsuits were the best thing to
have. Very easy to change diapers with these on. Thank you, Netta


24 Jess April 13, 2012 at 3:12 am

Just wondering if you’ve ever thought of doing a tutorial for using piping in sewing? Loving your easy to follow instructions and great pictures. Was just wondering if you use it much yourself in sewing.


25 From Jody to Margie April 13, 2012 at 4:26 am

Hey Margie……..this dress is made from a beach towel…….do you like it? Also, we could just use reguar fabric, like cotton…………..XOXOX’S


26 Kat April 20, 2012 at 9:16 am

Hi Dana, I just wondered if its still possible to get a copy of the Village Frock Pattern you used to make that lovely little courderoy dress? Is it one of your patterns because I couldn’t see it in the pattern shop.

Thanks so much,


27 Naomi May 1, 2012 at 4:41 am

I sent the message to your g mail.
About my mistake …
I am glad if a reply is got.

The message which I possibly sent thought that it would go into the troublesome folder and it could not see, and was allowed to write here.

I am writing this text using the translation site.

If I have you read, please erase here. ..

I’m sorry for my misstake.


The paper pattern of your beach robe which I bought a long time ago was the highest!
A daughter and a son will wear this summer also.


28 Mar May 9, 2012 at 3:37 pm

Dana, you have inspired me to sew so much! I have been having a blast making things for my kids, but I want to sew more for myself too. I wonder if you have any ideas about an A-line skirt with the front 6-12 inches shorter than the back? I have this picture in my head, and I can’t quite figure out how to make it work. I know you are busy! Let me know if you come up with anything, please.
Thank you!!!


29 sue christian-rodriguez May 9, 2012 at 7:58 pm

Idea for a skirt…I remember squaw skirts or patio skirts but look them up on the internet…they are three gathered tiers, loaded with ric-rac but to make it simpler, and easier, I am going to make your gathered skirt with rows of close spaced ric-rac. Mine was turqoise with silver ric rac; yes we loved metallics ric rac in 1954. They alsways had a matching easy top. Or you could attach the skirt to a T-shirt. Ask all the grandmas for their extra ric rac as we all have some and so save money. Use the idea if you want it…I think they should be popular again.

30 Stacey May 10, 2012 at 12:38 pm


May I just say, that you are an inspiration? I found your site via Pinterest and it motivated me to get sewing! I am self taught and pretty new to the game but I downloaded your summer vacation dress pattern which was a major sucess and got immediate approval from the 7 year old diva in my house! So much so that we made the 3 layer skirt… and matching outfits for La-La Loopsy!

I am looking for some ideas for the little men in my life… 20 month old twin boys. Why is it soooo fun to make stuff for the little ladies? I find myself struggling to find something interesting for the boys…. suggestions?

PS just bought your book from

You Rock



31 Dana May 10, 2012 at 12:59 pm

Hi Stacey,
I’m so glad you found us!

As for boys…I love sewing for boys and for two years did a series dedicated to them. I have an entire pants in the tutorials section here (with lots of variations):
And here’s a HUGE lineup of boy ideas:

Have fun sewing!

32 Benedicte May 11, 2012 at 5:44 pm

I would love to see a post on your babies diaper bag! Did you make it? If not, where did you buy one? I am due in June and totally in need of something that doesn’t scream “diaper bag”!!


33 Dana May 11, 2012 at 10:46 pm

I actually bought this one at Babies R us and absolutely love it. It doesn’t look like a diaper bag at all :)


34 Chelsea May 15, 2012 at 12:11 pm

Have you ever made the no sew tutu? All you need is tulle and a ribbon. I made one for myself for a costume party but mine is not nearly as cute as the ones for little girls. They are a fast and easy project for any mom to make not much skill is required either.


35 Cheree Martens May 20, 2012 at 7:40 pm

Hi there. I’m just curious about your personalized fabric labels. Could you tell me where you got those?


36 Jenny Woollard May 25, 2012 at 7:06 am

Hi Dana

I just wanted to say that I bought your book the fabric selector – my daughter’s class topic this semester at school is fabulous fabrics and your book was perfect – the teacher loved it! It was really for me of course but at the moment my daughter has even used it as her “home reading” as she thinks it is very very interesting. Before this I could not get her into my passion of crafting and sewing and now I have even bought her a basic machine of her own. Just wondering if you know of a resource that is great for beginner children sewers as a few friends are not that sewing savy and daughters and wanting to learn but they don’t have the skills to teach. found heaps of stuff on blogs but wondering if there is a good book I could source?
Thanks for your help



37 Dana May 25, 2012 at 10:01 pm

great! thanks!
I don’t know of any “sewing for kids” blogs, but I did review this book once that might interest you:


38 Jane May 30, 2012 at 2:51 pm

Hi Dana, I just wanted to let you know that I loved your Rollie Pollie Pattern…so much fun to make…and even more fun to watch my kids run and jump and lounge and read on it!! Not to mention, the large one is big enough for mama and daddy to rest their head next to the kiddos while reading…Anywho…Thanks also for the generous giveaway to go along with my OUT post at No Big Dill, very fun!!


39 kerrie May 30, 2012 at 8:44 pm

I love made tutorial .<3 .just wondering would it be possible were I can find pdf free pattern for this dress Kimono dress by Serendipity


40 meaghan June 1, 2012 at 12:02 pm

I just recently found your blog and I enjoy it very much! I noticed your giveaways and I would love to enter one but my husband is active duty us army and we are currently overseas would I be eligible using our APO address? I just want to make sure thanks. you have so many great projects that I can’t wait to get started on!


41 amy June 1, 2012 at 7:25 pm

What an incredible site. Thank you soooooooo much.


42 M. Mora June 4, 2012 at 1:50 pm

I have been nearly doing myself in trying to find the best way to attach sleeves when sewing !!!! I seen your tutorial on attaching sleeves and I have to thank you … Ive been teaching my self to sew for about 3months now and sleeves used to be the biggest hurdle I’ve had to get over..


43 tameka June 7, 2012 at 12:12 pm

hi dana,
i am dying to make pants for my 5 year old son using your tutorial as a guide since your pattern is for 3T. your pattern looks so easy that even i believe i can do it. you already suggested to me that i use a pair of my son’s pants for a pattern. the only thing is… i don’t know how:-(
how do you make a pants (or shorts) pattern from existing pants (in great condition) without taking the pants apart?
i tried folding the pants in a way to distinguish the front from the back, but tracing it was pretty difficult and messy.
thank you!!!


44 Dana June 7, 2012 at 12:27 pm

that’s how I do. Other than taking the pants apart, that’s the best way!
I’ts all an adventure when making patterns. But the more you do, the more clothing will make sense and you’ll get faster/easier at it.


45 Carol Lynn July 1, 2012 at 7:34 pm

I am a bored teenager. So I recently took up sewing, and I am completely hooked.Your site has helped me so much! I have searched high and low for a pattern for a dress I saw for 300 dollars in a mall. It was a fit and flare with long sleeves. I adored it, and I shop on a budget. I would love to create the same look, but I cannot find a pattern!!! HELP!!!


46 Julianne Cerullo July 2, 2012 at 6:14 pm

I purchased the vacation dress pattern thinking that it had a part in it to convert to an adult misses dress since it shows a dress made with a towel. But it doesn’t. Can you provide the directions? Thanks!


47 Kate July 16, 2012 at 4:05 pm

Hi Dana,

I came across your blog while searching for some ideas of what to do with the several yards of seersucker I recently acquired. Thanks so much for the great tutorials. My kiddos are now sporting matching shorts and circle skirt and all in just a few days working through nap time.

Your site is so much fun and you have such a “can do” attitude that you have me convinced I should try out some of your other tutorials and patterns.

If you ever have some tips of how to sew the curve of a circle skirt gracefully, I’m all ears.



48 Sadiyah JAUNOO July 29, 2012 at 5:52 am

Hello Dana!!
I wanted to know ALL the parts fo a tablecloth. i have to clearly label a tablecloth with its parts( like the Hem, etc..).
I don’t know the parts at all. i have tried to search on the net but in vain. Can you help please?
Thanking you.
By the way, i really like your blog..


49 Terri Sue August 8, 2012 at 1:47 pm

The instruction page for the warhol dress is corrupted. I was able to get the pattern pieces just fine. Each time I tried to get the instructions it said the file was corrupted.


50 Emily August 8, 2012 at 10:54 pm

Hi Dana! Just wanted to let you know that I made the tiered skirt via your tutorial and I could just cry!!! It came out so well and your instructions were amazing! I love, love, LOVE your site and all your creative ideas. So happy to have you as a mentor and a muse! xoxo


51 Chiara Aldridge August 9, 2012 at 8:55 pm

I just wanted to ask if the Can can skirt was on sale. It still says 8 dollars? Does it change when you add it to your cart and check out? Thank you for such awesome tutorials and patterns.


52 Teresa Gibson August 11, 2012 at 9:15 pm

So sorry you are running a political ad on your site. Hopefully the women that come to your site are smarter than Obama gives them credit for.


53 Jimmie-Lynn August 12, 2012 at 4:09 am

Great website! I am new to sewing (although I am 48 and mother of 5)! My mom has always done my sewing but we now live in Australia, serving as missionaries. My daughter needed an Esmeralda costume and I found your easy skirt tutorial very helpful! Any ideas on how to make the other pieces? We found a white blouse that will work but not sure about the waist pieces!


54 Mariken August 12, 2012 at 7:43 pm

Where will the winner be anounced for the necklaces and when?


55 Teda Heerema August 17, 2012 at 7:21 am

I like your label MA
Where can I get one made for myself. Thanks Teda


56 Danielle August 17, 2012 at 6:12 pm

Hi, these skirts are darling! I was wondering how I would go about adding a layer of tulle underneath… Suggestions please! :-) ( beginning sewer)


57 Katrina August 25, 2012 at 7:07 am

Hi, firstly I would like to say your blog is fantastic.
I have tried to pin many things off Pinterest and everytime it says it is spam. I have contacted Pinterest and they said they require you to contact them to workout what is happening. Every pin from your site is reported as spam??????? I love all your stuff, hope you can sort this out soon, cheers


58 Sue September 10, 2012 at 2:57 pm

I just found your blog and it looks great! Only problem is most of the links I have tried (under tutorials, series, etc.) are all broken. The URL looks like it’s going to an old site–has dashes in the name. When I take the dashes out, I get a 404 error. Example: Under Series, if you select Home Improvement and then click on Painting 101, you go to this URL which isn’t valid:

Just wondering if it’s me or if there’s something going on with your site. Thanks!


59 Crafty lady September 11, 2012 at 5:39 pm

I like photo number 1. Your children’s faces are beautiful and this photo captures it all!


60 Fran McGee September 20, 2012 at 11:42 am

I found your website while surfing pinterest. I love your refashioning tutorials! I thought you would want to know pinterest is blocking repinning your tutorials for “inappropriate content”…..whatever that is. I sure haven’t seen anything wrong. I LOVE your site! Thanks for all you hard work!


61 Becky T September 27, 2012 at 6:30 am

I linked a post back to you for the Simple Skirt. I just started blogging and your site is such an inspiration for my sewing room. I look forward to stopping by every morning!



62 Helene Massart-Walkt-Walk September 28, 2012 at 12:38 pm


Where do I start? I love your blog! I’ve been following it for about a year now.
It’s like my daily addiction, along with other French blogs. I’m from France and I’m married to a Texan. We live in Brownsville. I am working on my blog…Too shy to publish it yet. But I’m a craft lover and I adore sewing and knitting as well. There’s a ton of wonderful blogs I’d like you to check out (mostly French). Once I have my blog rolling, you can check the links on there.
Anyhow, thought I’d tell you that you kiddos are just BEAUTIFUL, in all meanings!
I love the creativity that is reflected in your pictures. You’re very much my type of gal! I’m a Target addict and I looooove thrift shopping to turn something ordinary into something unique!
If I’m in the Austin area, I sure will contact you and would love to meet ya!



63 Kim DiGiorgio October 1, 2012 at 2:10 pm

Hi Dana!!
I was just at prudent baby and I thought you were doing a guest post. It was a picture of a blonde child on your thrifted pillow case–the flowers of Holland. But then I read the words, and alas, it was Kojo designs. I wonder where she got her pillowcase?


64 Pavitra Chakravarty October 20, 2012 at 5:51 pm

I used your tutorials to make a circle skirt, dyed fabric and elastic, did some applique and also made a summer dress after buying your pattern…Loved, loved, loved it…

Thank you so much. You can see this in my latest blogpost at


65 Jean October 26, 2012 at 1:48 pm

Great site. Love the tutorial on the layered skirt. I was searching everywhere for instructions and so happy to find your detailed ones. Thanks


66 Mary November 17, 2012 at 9:33 pm

Hey Dana! I was looking for a particular project tonight and happened to come across another tutorial that referenced this fabric site that has some super AWESOME colors in elastic! Just thought I would share the link with you…your circle skirts have me sewing up a storm lately and all I can find is black or white elastic. Squeee, I’m gonna order some!
Also, check out this knitting pattern. I’m on my second one and will be making a third for my Clara(modifying to make it fit a toddler), but I’ve been thinking of you as I knit this. It’s perfect for South Texas winters, super easy and a great knit for beginners and superstars alike!
Here’s the pattern…it’s totally worth it.


67 Brittany November 22, 2012 at 3:56 pm

Hello!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE your patterns… I have done several of them and have several more that I want to do! I am looking for a longalls pattern or I have heard them referred to as Jon-Jons as well… I can’t find a tutuorial for one anywhere???? Any chance that you might do one?? Please let me know!!!



68 Melanie Fullmer November 26, 2012 at 10:31 pm

Hi Dana,
I’m looking for a bathrobe tutorial for kids. If you have one, will you send me a link?


69 Jennifer November 29, 2012 at 9:47 pm

I’m going to join the previous requests and ask if there’s ever going to be a chance to follow your blog by email? Your posts are fantastic, I need to start digging through your site now!

BTW I found you Googling bathrobe pattern (forgot to add ‘toddler’, but not to digress) I landed on your site and after reading the fabulous post on the beach robe pattern, there was a link to your post on Project Runway, the toddler edition.

You were lovely, and wrote a very PC post on not offending people which is understandable… but if you gagged half as hard as I did, you really demonstrated some self control! I was in Babies R Us recently, never having caught wind of Heidi Klum’s line, and when I saw the sign I actually got excited. Then, I walked over to the clothing. It’s absolutely awful! Sparkly, glittery, crazy shiny – I want to ask her if you have to find an outlet to plug the stuff in to??

I love your design aesthetic so super happy to have found your site :)




70 Diane December 1, 2012 at 6:16 pm

Love love love all your tutorials! Thank you so much for all the effort you put in to sharing your ideas!



71 Bethany December 13, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Dana, do you have a blog button?


72 Grace December 26, 2012 at 2:53 pm

Hi Dana!
I feel like I know you just by sewing along with you! I swear we could be sisters :)
Anyways I just wanted to take the time to say a huge THANK YOU!!! Before I found your website I hardly ever sewed and when I did, I usually ended up curled in a little ball under my kitchen table surrounded by 3 crying kids and 4 yrds of wasted fabric and 15 spools of used thread… ok i might have exaggerated that just a bit BUT it was really hard for me and none of my projects seemed to turn out. Now after following several of your sewing tutorials and loving everyone I feel like I can conquer the World!! or at least sew a wardrobe’s worth of clothes for my wonderful daughter :) So sincerely from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!! (that comes from my husband too ;)
your fan,


73 Linda McWilliams December 26, 2012 at 8:57 pm

Any winners for the Pinterest contest?


74 Melissa Z. January 10, 2013 at 2:13 pm

I just wanted to share a little sewing happiness with you. My nonnie was a seamstress; there wasn’t an item she couldn’t make. From home decor to her own clothes to pageant gowns, she did it all and she was amazing. Yet, I never took the time to learn from her. Shame on me. Fast forward many years. I stumbled upon your blog and have been inspired. Your sewing is fresh, it’s fun, it looks achievable! Now, at 37 years old, my mom (love her, xoxo) bought me my first sewing machine and I just received your book in the mail. It looks like a fabulous resource. I can’t wait to learn, to try, to create, and to someday teach my daughter and sons to sew. Thank you!! Keep the awesomeness coming!


75 Jenni January 18, 2013 at 6:59 pm

Could u forward info from your site


76 puja sabnani January 27, 2013 at 9:50 pm

Hi Dana,
LOVE your site and all you write about! I was wondering what you used when you have 2 or 3 pictures next to each other. They come out so crisp and clean and I would love to know what you use. I downloaded a Collage Maker app for my mac, but it doesnt have the crispness you do.

Hope you can shed some light on it!

77 Julie January 30, 2013 at 4:17 pm

Hi Dana!

Thanks SO much for the fabulous diaper cover tutorial! So fast and easy, I can’t wait to try some of your other tutes! I am wondering whether anyone has asked about selling items made from/inspired by your tutorials. I sell hand knits at some craft fairs and am looking at opening an etsy shop – would love to use the diaper cover along with one of my tunics.

Thank you again for sharing your wealth of knowledge!


78 Eyman (IMAN) February 21, 2013 at 1:24 am

Hey, Dana ! (If thats your name. I see other readers call you Dana though). :D

Cheers from Malaysia. ;)


79 Alison Harding March 3, 2013 at 5:16 pm

Hi Dana. I bought your rollie pollie pattern and have started sewing it today! I was wondering if you could tell me what seam allowance I should have as when I’ve gone to pin the top and bottom pieces I am left with about 26cm of side panel that cant fit onto the circle. My seams are 1cm wide. I’ve repinned the circles twice and as accurately as possible but can’t get them to fit properly :( Many Thanks!! Alison x


80 Peggy Tuchscherer March 15, 2013 at 6:31 pm

I am looking for the childs hooded terry towel dress pattern. I can’t seem to find it on the site. Can you help.


81 Becky March 22, 2013 at 3:39 pm

Do you have a tutorial for Pillowcase Dresses?


82 Phyllis April 6, 2013 at 7:03 pm

I am makeing the little circle skirt, do I put the elastic on the outside of the skirt , also
do I cover the raw edges of the skirt before I put the elastic on the skirt.

Thank you so much


83 Gabriela Dadufalza April 7, 2013 at 11:00 pm

Dear Dana,
First and foremost I’d like to thank you for such a wonderful blog! My first ever sewing project was a circle skirt for my daughter last September! Younhave thought me so much!

I hope you like it!
Have a blessed week!

HI Dana
I am starting my own blog and I would like to mention the blogs that I use for new inspiration. Is it allowed to copy pictures from your blog (with the link back to your blog, of course).


86 jc May 9, 2013 at 10:04 am

Hi Dana. I know you can’t answer every question individually–that’s why I didn’t want to send a personal email. After reading your FAQ’s, I don’t recall seeing this one up there.

I just discovered your blog about a week ago and have been printing tutorials to try (I’m a beginner). It appears that you do your blog and sewing for fun, to educate people, but also appears it may be a business as well?

If so, could you briefly explain if you had to (or did) a trademark for your name (I’m thinking about your labels)? And/or did you incorporate in your state?

Just curious. I’m considering venturing out on the business side. For now, I blog for fun and enjoyment. :-). Thanks so much. Cordially, JC

Hi Dana,

what a great blog you have! I still have some trouble sewing the boys racershorts, but I’m learning along the way…! At least I can try to make something for my son now instead of only sewing for my little girl!
Yesterday I was going trough different toppics on your blog and somehow I found a tutorial (I think it was from someonelses blog that I found trough yours..??) for making a hoodie! I was realy glad I found it, but forgot to save the page on my computer….. And now I have no idea how to find it back! Do you have any idea where I can find that tutorial..???

Thanks al lot for all your great tutorials en beautifull pictures that you share!

Regards from Holland!

100 Teresa September 8, 2013 at 1:15 am

Hi Dana!
I’ve absolutely fallen in love with your blog. But I had a quick question. We are on a really tight budget here as only one of us is currently working so I’ve been converting our old clothes into new clothes for the kids. Except I REALLY want to turn some of my old red sweaters into some sweater dresses for my 7 yr old, but I’m not sure how to adjust them. They are red knit sweaters. And as such, they don’t gather the same as other fabrics, and the material doesn’t lay the same as other fabrics, so before I start cutting and snipping, I want to make sure the end result will be a wearable sweater dress. I know that since it’s one ofmy old sweaters it won’t be really long, but I plan on her pairing it with a pair of leggings or heavy tights anyways.

I hope my babbling makes sense. Any help you can give would be amazing.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you

A Very Desperate Mommy (Teresa) :)


101 Diane September 12, 2013 at 11:19 am

I am an engineer who have long working hours outside home and hate to stuck on such teeny weeny things, instead I used to spend on such buys!

Hi I just purchased your shorts pattern through PayPal on my iPad and I’ve lost the download. Can you send it to my email address please

Sorry, ignore my message


106 Susan December 18, 2013 at 11:42 pm

Hi Dana! I was wondering if you could recommend a good sewing machine for a somewhat beginner (who plans to improve!). I’ve been asking my mom to teach me to sew forever and finally for my 30th birthday she did! She gave me her old machine, which is so sentimental, but it finally wore out :( Hoping to get a new one for Christmas, but time is running out!

Thanks so much!!!

107 Julie C January 14, 2014 at 1:47 pm

Hi Dana. I love your new videos !! I was wondering (in the future) if you planned on doing some with Lucy for simple sewing projects (for kids). My oldest (8 yrs) is asking to do some sewing projects and I’m a newbie myself, so I we both need A LOT of instructions. Thanks and happy sewing !


108 Tiffany January 15, 2014 at 4:52 pm

Do you allow items made from your paid patterns to be sold?


109 Jess January 16, 2014 at 6:25 pm

Hi there dana. I absolutely love so many of your patterns, tips and the real factor you have. Thanks so much for showing that we all need a hand sometimes and even though we love our tiny one SO much, sometimes its nice to get a break. I seem to always be looking for your patterns as they are easy to understand. i have so far made a dress and nappy cover for my 14 month old little girl, a pair of easy shorts for my 2 1/2 year old little boy and a few burp cloths. As a self taught sewer, thanks a bunch. :) Jess


110 Grandmaoftwo February 4, 2014 at 5:53 am

I love your site and have made many of your patterns all very successful and loved by my granddaughter. Could you rustle up a pattern for leggings and cropped leggings to go with the circle skirt? be great for our upcoming autumn in NZ. x


111 Amy February 8, 2014 at 8:06 am

Hi Dana,

I have purchased your shorts pattern via pay pal a week ago, but I’m yet to receive it???? Please can you advise when I will be getting it? Thanks


112 nina February 10, 2014 at 5:26 pm

Me encantan tu tutoriales quiero recibirles en mi correo GRACIAS


113 Cris February 23, 2014 at 12:17 am

I just wanted to say thank you :) I’ve never used a sewing machine in my life, but in a last-minute emergency, I was forced to learn quickly when my husband needed all of his gear sewn the night before a big inspection. He bought me a machine, and after fumbling my way through that night, I thought maybe I should learn to sew “for real.” Almost a year later, half of my 5-year-old’s wardrobe is handmade, I make and use my own patterns, and I’m
getting ready to upgrade to something more than my very cheap, very basic machine.

My husband is now deployed, and I find a lot of comfort in sewing on those long nights when I’m struggling with my emotions. It’s given me a new way to connect with my mother, my grandmother, and even my son, as I start teaching him the basics of sewing. Sewing has changed my life, and it all started on one lazy afternoon when I thought maybe I’d try to sew a pair of pajama pants. I owe it all to you and your website!

Hi Dana, I have just found you through Pinterest and have subscribed to your videos. I watched the bias tape one – excellent! One thing I noticed though was that when you used the rotary cutter you cut towards yourself. The safest and most advisable way to use the rotary cutter is to cut away from yourself because of the sharpness of the blade. If you slipped of the mat cutting towards yourself you could to some serious damage very quickly.

123 Karen September 1, 2014 at 11:10 am

I am making the first day dress with the twirl skirt.
I have a question.
When making the full dress I put the sleeves in first. Whereas if I were making the straight dress I would put the dress together and then add the sleeves. Is this correct?


124 Dana September 1, 2014 at 11:12 pm

You put the sleeves in the same way for both dress styles – the twirly dress and the straight A-Line dress.
Just follow the step-by-step instructions in the pattern and it will walk you though it all.

Hi! I just wanted you to know that I ran across one of your YouTube videos and I loved it! (How to make a car seat cover). You are adorable and itnwas so easy to follow you instructions. I have only been sewing for about a year. Once my grandkids started showing up I decided to teach myself to sew all these adoreable things I find on Pinterest and YouTube. Anyway, thanks a lot for your help in what would otherwise be a horrendous mess!

I love your Alice In Wonderland Dress and Apron and featured on your blog in 2010. A long time ago I know. Do you still have the pattern for both the dress and the apron that I could purchase. I have searched world wide for a lovely, simple dress for my little girl’s Alice And Wonderland themed 5th birthday party.



142 Dana March 13, 2015 at 1:04 am

Sorry I don’t have the exact pattern…but my First Day Dress is pretty close to what I did (but without the peter pan collar):

And I don’t have a pattern for the apron. I was just making it up as I went :)


143 Wendy March 17, 2015 at 6:12 pm

Hi Dana

Love your video’s and patterns, in Australia we print on A4 paper, are your patterns suitable for printing on A4 paper?



144 Dana March 17, 2015 at 6:15 pm

Our paper standard is 8.5 inches x 11. I’m not sure how that
translates to cm?


145 Willa Jo Jones March 21, 2015 at 4:13 pm

I purchased and downloaded the pattern but most of the lines on the pattern did not print. Did anyone else have this problem? I’m having to run back and forth from my computer to my work table, drawing in lines. None of the handle placement lines on the side pieces printed and none of the dashed lines nor any of the dotted lines printed. This is making this job much harder. I consider myself an advanced beginner and I can usually work through problems but I didn’t anticipate this one before I even get started. I’m afraid I’m going to miss something.


146 Dana March 22, 2015 at 12:33 am

Sorry you’re having difficulty with printing.
I would try saving the pdf file to your computer, opening it again, and try printing again.
Also try printing from another printer….or you can even send it to a print center, like Office Depot or Staples and have them print the pages you need.


147 amy June 28, 2015 at 6:54 pm

Sorry, i do not want to be a pain but I have also had these issues. I am in australia. I have printed from 3 printers (including a professional printer at officeworks) and it is missing 4-5 size lines (entire dress size) on each page in both colour and black. This pattern is unusable as half the pages are blank. I’m very disappointed since this is classed as an expensive pattern ($14 AUD). IS there anything else i can try?


148 Tallulah March 23, 2015 at 12:23 pm

Hi I’ve printed the new pattern for the diaper covers. Do you have the ne tutorial I can’t seem to find it.

Hi Dana, sorry to bother you but I’m at my wits end. I promised my grandkids pool robes for next weekend (crazy grandma) and I cannot figure out the pattern. Remember I’m a crazy ( computer challenged) grandma and when I download then go to print , I did find how to click on borderless but I’m still getting border gaps . Is this me , or am I just unable to use a computer properly? If that is the case , do you have the lengths for the robes so I can adjust what I have printed?
I would really appreciate your help, thanks so much, Beth

154 Martha Alexander July 3, 2015 at 8:34 am

Dana, THANK YOU!!! I googled recovering a bench cushion and ended up on your site. I watched how to make an envelope pillow and immediately made 3 pillow covers perfectly. Then I watched about making the boxed pillow. I immediately made my bench cushion cover using both the envelope and box technique. My husband said, “I nailed the bench cushion recovering”! Thanks to you!! I never knew how to box anything. It is so exciting. Now today I am going to search making roman shades.
Thanks, Martha P.S. I sew on my great grandmothers tiny, old, black & gold singer. Ha.

164 Jess September 23, 2015 at 5:04 am

Hello Dana,

I’ve recently became your fan when I found your diaper cover pattern on pinterest. Thank you so much fo the simple instructions and the free patterns. My best friend will love her present for her new born girl.

Currently, I’m very interested in making an apron- I’d like to ask if you have any free pattern recommendations or a way to make a DIY apron pattern.

Again thanks again for such a great website for sewists (haha think I just made up a new word).

Yours Truly,
Jess from Japan


165 Kyle October 3, 2015 at 3:58 pm

Hey Dana!
I adore everything you do! A friend and I are planning on making yarn globes using your video. We have a question for you. We wanted to add a little pizzazz to our globes. We have glitter but we aren’t sure how to use it to add a SUBTLE touch of sparkle. Should we try dusting the glitter on while the globes dry or would it make more sense to put glitter in the glue/water solution. We were hoping you would weighin on how best to go about this. Thanks a ton!

Kyle and Alex

Hi Dana,
I just wanted to share that my daughter decided to do a fashion show as her senior project in high school. Her sewing skills at the beginning were sewing on buttons. An uphill battle commenced with lots of learning from your video tutorials. She successfuly finished with 7 outfits and an amazing experience.
Just wanted to say thank you for your help!


171 Jacquie November 22, 2015 at 9:07 pm

Hi Dana i love watching your videos the lampshades are my favorite and with that video i was just wonder instead on the long retangle container maybe using a tall one you could fit a paper towel holder into to help hold onto the wool while you are using it in the glue mixture just a thought have a great day
