    I would like to see doll clothes articles.

  2. Virgini Johnson says:

    I would love to see bags and gifts for baby showers

  3. Clem says:

    I would love to see several things. More sewing things for boys of all ages and quilting things. Quilting without a longarm. I see people showing how to quilt on a regular machine but they use a small quilt sandwich and tell you to do the same thing with your large quilt. It usually does not transfer well on the larger quilt. More difficult.
    Thanks

    I second the comment(s) about projects for boys – I don’t have boys, but often feel like boys are somewhat neglected when it comes to sewing projects. Lots of cute dresses, but not much for boys. More upcycled projects are always welcome too!

    I would like to see more ways to use a serger, even general instructions reinforced would be wonderful. Also, I’m seeing some amazing printed oilcloth in the stores and would love to use it for something. Not quite sure what it can be used for or how difficult it is to work with. And I love anything for little girls, I know you have some great tips or shortcuts we can use.
    I love your confidence on the show, it makes me feel brave, too. :) Everything is “Fabulous”, but the time goes by way too fast!

    I would love to see:
    ‘How to make fabric made Easter egg ornaments’ in the shape of eggs to decorate an Easter tree (very popular in Europe).
    To make Easter eggs, maybe use oval Styrofoam shapes and cover with vibrant multicolored fabrics attached by pins or sewn together.
    You could display the decorations on a small imitation Christmas tree and perhaps comment about the history of this unique pastime!
