Friday Faves - Sept 4

New toy: a serger! I ordered it from Amazon. I spent the whole weekend reading the manual and watching the instructional videos. This deserves an entire post devoted to it.

Fall crafts:
Felt Leaf Pillow and Oak-Leaf Bowl at Martha Stewart

Hawaiian Quilt inspired paper cuts to decorate your walls at Martha Stewart crafts dept blog. I love the symmetrical floral designs of applique Hawaiian quilting. For more hawaiian style designs browse or Pacific Rim Quilt Company. For some quilting history check out this page.

Book I want:
Crochet Adorned by Linda Permann
This is just the kind of crochet I want to do – not an entire sweater, just an embellishment.
I'm adding this book to my Amazon wishlist!

Tutorial-full fashion blog (found via craftzine)
