Zakka 2.0 Week 1 :: Bell Pepper Coasters

Debbie and I are so excited to kick of the sew along through Patchwork, Please today!

This weeks project is the Bell Pepper Coasters.   I love kitschy things, so I can’t wait to sew this up for my kitchen.

Penny from Sew Take a Hike will be sharing her version with us today and she’s also shared the how-to for altering the pattern to make a hotpad!

The prize for this week is a $25 gift certificate to Fort Worth Fabric Studio and (1)  crib-sized package Legacy™ by Pellon® 100% Bleached Cotton Batting.



Starting today and every Monday following, a link up will be added for that weeks project.    You will have from Monday through the following Sunday at 11:59 pm EST to complete and add your project.

You don’t have to have a blog, but you will need a photo hosting  (flickr, photobucket, etc) account to be able to link your project.

The winner will be announced on the next Monday post and will add the link up and prize info for the next week.   So on and so on through the 19 weeks.

You may begin linking up your finished Bell Pepper Coasters (or Hotpads) today through Sunday June 9th at 11:59 pm EST for a chance to win the $25 GC to Fort Worth Fabric Studio and the batting from Pellon.

You are only eligible to win the weekly prizes if you submit during the time frames.   BUT, remember that you can link up at ANY time if you can’t keep up with the schedule.   We would all love to see your finished project whenever you’re able to complete it!  The giveaways are just for fun.

As a bonus,  we will do a random drawing from ALL entries submitted for Projects 1-5, so if  you missed the deadline you still have a chance to win a $50 GC to the Fat Quarter Shop!  :)    We will draw for Projects 6-10-, 11-15 and 16-19 as well.

To link up your project, click on the frog below and follow the instructions.

One entry per person, please.

Can’t wait to see what you make!

Beehive ATL + a fabric sale

I moved into my space at the Beehive Atlanta yesterday.  Phew!

I’m crossing my fingers that my things do well there.  I’m quite nervous!

Handmade coops are a wonderful thing and I’m so thankful to have the opportunity at both Collective and Beehive.

I want to do a little store tour of both in the coming weeks.   It’s like being inside of Etsy, so much gorgeous, handcrafted goodness all around!

Also wanted to share that Fort Worth Fabric is having a 25% off sale on all Moda fabrics.

I want to get some of this Mama Said Sew text print.   Can’t beat under $7 a yard!

Sale includes Bella Solids too which are $4.88 a yard. (eek!)   Good until end of day tomorrow 10/17.

Giveaway from Fort Worth Fabric Studio!

**Giveaway is now CLOSED, thank you!**

I am very  excited today to welcome Fort Worth Fabric Studio as a new sponsor at LRstitched!

The owner, Jodie, is very sweet and this store is her creative dream.

When I saw Fort Worth in the name I immediately asked her if it was Fort Worth as in Texas?

I grew up in Dallas which is about 45 minutes from Fort Worth.   I was tickled when she said yes.

Small world!

She has a wide selection of beautiful fabrics and LOTS of custom fat quarter bundles.

I picked three of my favorites to share.

The Ta Dot bundle has all 37 colors of this print from Michael Miller.

I love polka dots and especially in a rainbow of colors!

And this bundle called I love a Rainy Day, cracks me up.  How cute are the Donkey’s in rain boots?

Love these colors!  This is a custom bundle for the Quilt Con block challenge.

The shop offers great prices on shipping and all patterns ship FREE.

Jodie also put together a bundle for me to giveaway to one of you!

Just leave a comment for a chance to win this fat quarter bundle called ‘Luminosity‘.

15 fat quarters in shades of gray, white, black and yellow.

The giveaway is open to all readers both US and International and will stay open until Friday, June 15th at 10 am EST.

Good Luck and welcome to Fort Worth Fabric Studio!

xo, Lindsey

P.S.  I’m so sorry for being late, late, LATE with this post.

Summertime with a 5 and 6 year old…. phew!

Zakka Along Week 11 :: Orchard Tweed Pouch

This post is part of the Zakka Style Sew Along, please visit here to catch up if you’re just joining us!


You all rocked the zip organizers last week!!!

Excuse the massive mosaic, but I had to squeeze all I could find in the flickr group.

(If I missed yours, it was not on purpose!)

This was a challenging project, and I thought maybe 5 or so people would complete it.

Wha?  More like 28, woot!

And the fabric choices!  I kept saying to myself, ooh I want one like that, and that and that and that….

So out of 28 entries, random.org chose the winner for the Lecien Cosmo sampler kit and it’s #22, Marian.  Congratulations!

Thank you so much to Lecien for you generosity!


This weeks project is an adorable zipper pouch designed by Amanda Jennings.

Elizabeth from Don’t Call Me Betsy is our blogger for this project and I love her little pouch.   Especially the lining fabric!

She has given some great advice on sewing this pouch up, so be sure to head over and check out her post.

Take a peek at her tutorials and patterns while you’re there, she has LOTS of inspiring things on her blog!


Projects that are completed and entered this week have a chance to win a beautiful fat quarter bundle of Summerlove from Art Gallery Fabrics.    Art Gallery is known for the feel of their fabric and you are going to love these beauties!

You may begin linking up your finished Orchard Path pouch today through Sunday June 17th at 11:59 pm EST for a chance to win the fat quarter bundle of Summerlove!
