These are websites you may want to belong to or join.
Websites:
BurdaStyle.com - you can create a profile account and show off your sewing projects.
CraftGossip - Shows you the news craft projects online.
Sewing.org - you can look up sewing instructors, free projects and more.
Threads - For People Who Love to Sew - This is through Threads Magazine. They have a section on learning to sew.
All Free Sewing - Free sewing patterns
One Pretty Thing - DIY craft tutorials - Shows you the news craft projects online.
Crafsty -Online Classes
You Can Make This - PDF Patterns and free projects too.
Sewing Mamas - Sewing Forums for any questions you may have.
Sew4Home - Home related sewing projects.
Creating a Flickr, PhotoBucket or ShutterFly account can help you share pictures of sewing projects and get inspired to sew more by seeing what others have created using some of the same sewing patterns.
Creating a blog through Wordpress or Blogger can help you journal your sewing adventures.
Honestly, I think a journal is the best way to learn more about yourself and how you learn best. In college I wrote a journal about my learning experiences as a musician and I learned more that way than taking any tests. I think students should also do this in school.
Standardized testing is not the best way to find out what our students know.
I hope you enjoyed these sites. If you know of any fun sewing sites that are not listed here please post a comment with your favorite sewing blog or website! I would love to see your favorites!
Tomorrow we will talk about sewing books! Can’t wait!

Dear Leah, I love this blog! Sewing is definitely back in fashion and is very addictive! I've developed my sewing skills in the last few years and am trying to teach other beginners to learn in stages too with simple sewing kits www.littledresskits.co.uk I wanted to make clothing for my daughter and started my sewing projects when I was pregnant. It's very therapeutic! I'd be so grateful if you'd consider listing my site under your 'websites' sections xx

Please, please help me decide about buying a smocking pleater. I have successfully completed my first baby smocked dress. I 'd love to do more . The hand marking is horribly tedious. a pleater seems the way to go. Who has experience with one? How easily do they work? etc.

Thank you! I really liked Sewing Mamas. I found a similer site - www.st-baby.com - it also has sewing guides but only for baby's stuff. Check it out

I’d like to call attention to Charlie’s comment: in addition to the excellent website, staying abreast of blog postings about their company and commenting on them is a sure sign they understand the Internet, in a way that very few companies in the Apparel industry do.

Sweet Coin Purse Tutorial for Teacher Gifts

This time of year is so special to me because I get to show my gratitude for all of the hard work that goes into teaching my daughters. I love to make handmade gifts and this year is no exception. Since money does not grow on trees around here, I looked at my stash (I keep my scraps in hat boxes) and tried to see what I had a lot of; small zippers, trims, Peltex strips (from making iPad cases), fabric scraps and some hardware for key fobs. So I set to work.  Materials: Plastic multipurpose 5" Zipper  Fabric Scraps Lightweight interfacing 808 Pellon Trims (We clipped key fobs with 1.5" swivel hooks onto our coin purses. There are tons of tutorials on making key fobs.) Step 1: Print out the Coin Purse Template PDF. 
Cut 2 main fabric, cut 2 lining and 2 interfacing using the template.  Optional: Cut a 2"X2" square of your choice main fabric or lining. This strip of fabric is used to clip a key fob to your coin purse later. We used a 1.5" swivel hook.

How to Line an A-Line Skirt Tutorial

After you find an A-line skirt pattern, I am using One Yard Wonders 101 template. Make a muslin of your skirt! It only takes a few minutes to make a muslin version. Just baste stitch the side seams and make adjustments for your hips. Once your template is right you can make all the skirts your heart desires, so it is important to get the perfect fit first. Now we are ready to cut the "good" fabric and sew! ---------------------------------- ---------------------------------- ---------------------------------- ---------------------------------- Flip the skirt right side out and put it on!! You are done!! It is super easy and your new skirt will look store made.  Plus there is no hand stitching the lining to the main fabric. If you have any questions please comment below or email me at leah.sewspoiled@gmail.com.  WooHooo!! A-Line Skirt Pattern Finds
