As you know I absolutely Love sewing, but a very close second is baking. I find that it is so similar to sewing. A recipe to follow with directions and measurements, and you get something absolutely beautiful and tasty at the end. Because of my love of sewing and baking, I wanted to share with you a very loved family recipe with you that you can make for your upcoming Christmas feast. I promise that this Coconut pie is a HUGE crowd please and is pretty fool proof as well.

Filling:

2 Cups Sugar (Di...

 This is another of my new patterns called the Fremantle Frock! Im so excited to share this pattern with you all because it is definitely a show stopper and Fit To Flatter! Featuring princess seams with sneaky little pockets hidden inside the front princess seams. The hem is a completely faced curved hem, giving it weight and structure, and the Fremantle Frock also has inset short sleeves as you can see in the pictures. This dress would look perfect made up in a quilting weight cotton and other...

Im finally back from my long trip to the USA and just now getting over jet lag. If I could only sleep past 5am that would be fantastic! Today I thought I would share with you my experience of having a booth at Houston, my learnings/take aways, and some of the wonderful new fabrics and tools that I got to see while I was there. For those of you who aren't quite sure what Quilt Market is: Its an International Trade show for the sewing and craft industry. This part of the event is only open to busi...

Before I got married to my now husband Bryce, I told him I will marry him on one condition... "I get a sewing room, and we can have Amy Butler Cushions on our bed." He felt like that was a good bargain and so do I. :)

My sewing studio is such a very special place to me. It is where new ideas are sewn into reality, Skype sessions from around the world are held, and my little business is able to grow and flourish. We recently moved to the Sunshine Coast of Queensland Australia and moved into a real...

 What could possibly be better than one amazing pattern... Taking two of your favourite patterns and smashing them together!

 

 In this blog post, I have attached a PDF document that you can print out, outlining how to adjust your two patterns to create a whole new look. For this dress I used the bottom of the Emerson Wrap Skirt and lengthened it to a maxi. I then made the top of the Jet Set Jumpsuit and made the straps adjustable. (Adjustable Strap Tutorial Here...)

It's typically the little things that can take something great and turn it into something AMAZING! I recently released  the new Jet Set Jumpsuit and Wide Leg Pants pattern, and while it is not necessary to have adjustable straps when making your new jumpsuit it sure does take it to a whole new level of WOW!

 

This little tutorial is great for not only my patterns but for any spaghetti strap pattern that you would like to have the option of adjusting.

 

The first thing you will need to do is to...
