  2. Hi,
    I have a question about the sewing machine.
    I usually make small stuff with felt hand sewn and now I really want to start with the sewing machine… but I don’t know which is best to buy, may you have some advice for me?

    Have a great day

  3. Hi Mie, thanks for the advice! I looked around the web but it makes me more confused, there are a lot of good and bad reviews about the same sewing machine… and I am totally new on this field! So I decided to ask you and than I’ll go into a store.
    I am so excited about this purchase! It will be my Christmas present! I really can’t wait 🙂

    Thank you so much for your availability!

  4. Hello Cherie!
    I’m sooooo glad that I find your website by a chance~^^
    Your stuff are amazing! What a creative mom!
    Best wishes to you and your lovely daughter.
    Warm greetings from Istanbul/Turkey.

  5. Hi-I had been thinking about doing a photo book for my grandson’s 1st birthday and yours helped me get started (actually finishing it today–birthday party is this Sunday). I have everything ready to put together, but I was not able to make square photos from the photos I had, I liked the uniformity of yours and was wondering if you would share with me how you managed to make them all square? I ended up using my embroidery software to do them a bit differently which I think will work fine, but all through my process I just keep wondering how you made them square. Hopefully, I will finish today and if all turns out well, I will send you a pic. I would like to make him more for at least the next two birthdays as our family grows. Thanks! Patty

    • Hi Patty! I actually cropped them into squares on my computer before printing them out. Depending on your photo editing software, there are different ways of cropping them into squares. Another option would be to print them out as 5×7 photos and then just cut them into the shape of a square after they are printed. I’d LOVE to see the book you made!!

  6. I just saw this “pin” and am very excited!!! I have never botherd to look at the Japanese patterns, because I cannot read japanese!!!! love the styles and would love to make them for my 4 granddaughters. I like the fact that these patterns are not widely seen in stores, so my creations would be unique! 🙂

  8. Hi!
    I just saw your fabric photo books and I am going to try to make one. I have just about zero sowing ability, do you have a tutorial on these that you could share?

  9. Hello cherie, i really love following your blog. it gives me a lot of inspiration! after such a long time just thinking about, i finally did it and startet to share my own creations. you seam to blog and sew with a lot of passion. and i just wanted to ask you if you have a good advice for me, how to successfully start my blog. if you would like to have a look you can find me on
    thanks a lot, your work is amazing!
    best wishes

    • Hi Nina! I checked out your blog and it looks great!! You have great style and your photos are lovely too. I’d say that you’re off to a fine start as far as your blog is concerned. I’m not sure what type of advice you’re looking for, but I’d say, keep sewing what you love and posting about it. If you want more traffic or to become more well known, participate in sew-alongs and KCW (though it seems like you’re doing both), add your pictures to Flickr pools and link to your blog, join link parties, visit and comment on other people’s blogs, etc. But most of all, just keep making awesome stuff and sharing it with whoever will listen! 🙂 Best of luck to you!

  11. Cherie,
    I would love to make your bunting flannel quilt. Would you be willing to share the directions?
    I love your blog.

  12. Do you happen to have a post of your favorite stores to get apparel fabric (in SF, or nearby)?I know of Britex, but I’m sure there’s some awesome others, too. I tend to always end up in quilting fabric stores, and can’t find the apparel fabrics. Thank you!!

    • I don’t have a post like that, but it’s a great idea! For apparel fabrics maybe you might try Fabric Outlet and Discount Fabrics? I’ve never actually been to Fabric Outlet, but I’ve heard good things. Maybe I’ll try doing some research and writing a post 🙂

  15. Hi, Cherie!

    We adore your blog! We accidentally stumbled across it and your creations are amazing. You’re very talented. We’re actually looking for other blogs to help promote some of our products, since we’re a relatively new business in the fabric industry, and looking to help get our name out there as best we can. Would you be willing to feature us in a post by any chance? We would be willing to send you some samples of our fabric as well if you were interested. If not, we’d appreciate any feedback or advice from a fellow blogger. 🙂
