Hi,my name is Kay aka Memaw aka Sunshine.I am a 64 yr young retired homebody and love to sew from scraps or recycled fabrics.

I suffer from depression and sewing helps keep me from going crazy!

I have 2 kids,4 grandkids who all live in NC.

My grandmother taught me how to sew many years ago.She was an expert,however I don't have her patience so I stick to simple projects.

Most of the things I make I give away as gifts,it's fun and keeps my mind occupied.

Until later...........Kay aka Memaw aka Sunshine



Craft: Easy Pleated Tote BagThey are easy to make and loads of fun creating your own design. I modified the original one by making straps wider and adding them to the top of the bag at the pleats instead of at the band.


Ruffled Jean Purse

Ruffled Jean PurseThis is an idea I had for making a denim jean handbag. I had a pattern for a small fabric bag (McCalls 4885) so I used the pattern's pieces to make the ruffles. For the lining and handles, I used a pretty cotton print.


Potholders on bulletinboard.

Potholders From Fabric ScrapsI have a lot of fabric and a lot of scraps leftover from my projects so I decided to make some potholders from the scraps. I have not been able to master the binding that goes around the edge so I tried something different.
