Did you get a sewing machine for Christmas?
And you’re ready to sew?…(while dreaming of warmer weather?)
Me too.
So let’s go to our happy yellow place and sew.

This is the first sewing video in our new season of MADE Everyday with Dana!
I’m excited to show you our new backgrounds, and close-up camera angles.
You’re gonna love the music too.

AND….you get to see my new Baby Lock sewing machine in action.
Remember that thread cutter function I was told you about?
Ooo la-la.

First we’ll make a basic bag.
Then we’ll box it out and throw on vinyl straps.
Vinyl straps!….my new favorite addition to this project.

There’s even a hidden surprise inside my bag to help it stand up well.
But you’ll have to wait till the end to see it…

So just hit the play button below and enjoy!

let’s bake 30 recipes today….

by Dana on December 20, 2014

You’ve got the energy right?
Me too!
I  think.

Growing up my mom started making holiday treats weeks before Christmas and would store them in shoeboxes in the freezer.
I guess I’m a few weeks behind.
And I don’t have any shoeboxes.
But I have some fantastic, easy, tried-and-true recipes for you and me!

So if you’re baking this weekend too, let’s do this thing….

Remember two years ago when I did a  Sweets and Treats Christmas countdown?

Together with some blogging friends, we shared a tasty recipe each day in December.
And there are still a few recipes I’ve been dying to try…like Maple Walnut Chocolates by Smashed Peas and Carrots….and home-baked sweet granola by Delia Creates….
Gimme, gimme. I need! I need!

And you probably need my amped-up Chocolate Dipped Gingerbread Softies.
And some Chocolate Tangerine Bars.  Mmmm.
Both are all-time faves!

So here you go….30 recipes to get you baking this week!
Seriously.  Just check out Vanessa’s SIMPLE 3 minute-3 ingredient fudge (and the spin I did on it).  Okay….
Just click a button below to go straight to the recipe:
