Wow! Sher's Creative Space Made the Top 100!


How exciting! Look how far Sher's Creative Space has come! I was so excited when I received an email from All Free Sewing. One of my patterns has been their reader's favorite and made their top 100 list for 2017. With thousands of patterns at their website, this is very exciting for me. My Foldable Tote Bag tutorial is what made their list.

If you haven't checked them out, then it's time you did. They have thousands of patterns to choose from and they are all free! They have everything from clothing, to bags, to softies. They also have a lot of beginner patterns and great articles to get you started.

Stop by and take a look at all the fun things you could be creating right now....for free!

FREE Mug Rug of the Month Patterns


What's a better way to kick off the new year than with a whole year of mug rugs? Nothing I can think of. Well, I'm sure there are better ways for life in general, but when it comes to sewing, this must be up at the top five.

A couple years back I did a collaboration with Mayra at So Sew Easy. It was a lot of fun and Mayra is such a pleasure to work with. I designed a mug rug for each month and they can all be found on her website. If you aren't familiar with her website, you will want to bookmark it so you can refer back to it often. So many fun and informative things!

Below is the link to the Pinterest Board where I have them all saved. Just click on the one (or ones) and it will take you to So Sew Easy where you will find the instructions and the link to the PDF templates, which are also available at my PDF Pattern Shop Craftsy.



If you don't want to download them all right now, no worries, as long as you follow my blog (link at the right), I'll remind you during the first week of each month that there is one available!

A Look Ahead with Sher's Creative Space


I've never been one for resolutions because I never keep them. When it comes to the important things in life, I prefer to make changes, plans, and set goals. To me, it just makes more sense. When you set goals, you don't say, "This year I'm going to............(fill in the blank)." I know that when I set goals for myself or my business, I come up with a plan, a strategy, a plan of attack. It takes thought, patience (sometimes), energy, organization, and a positive attitude. So I'm sharing with you, a couple things that you will be seeing in the next year for Sher's Creative Space and In the Hoop by Sher.

• BACK TO BLOGGING: This past year I've gotten behind in my blogging. I really missed writing as well as visiting my writing friends. So, each week I will announce my Weekend Freebie right here on the blog, as well as writing informative articles and tutorials. I will also enjoy visiting my favorite creative blogs.

• CUSTOM EMBROIDERY PATTERNS: This is something I'm going to start doing at some point this year. I'm not going to get into anything complex such as logos, but I've got a start on various templates where I will fill in with your items. I've done a little of this recently for personal situations and I really enjoyed it. A couple of the items were so touching, that it brought tears to my family's eyes. The ideas are up there, spinning around in my head, it's just a matter of getting it all organized for presentation, pricing, etc.

I do have some other ideas in the works, but let's just start with these two things for now. The last thing I want to do is overwhelm myself!
