My name is Misty and I’m a fabric-holic! I love fun fabric and cute patterns and giveaways. I’m a modern-day sewist (mostly self-taught and probably lacking a lot of the traditional knowledge that our grandparents have). I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful kids that I love to sew for and am so blessed to be able to stay home with. I love interacting with our followers and I consider you all to be part of the BWD Family. Your support means the world to me and I appreciate it more than you know.

  • Cat G

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  • RaisingGodsGirls

    I always stop at the end of a complete step and write down where to start on a piece of paper which stays with the project. I leave pattern pieces attached if possible. If not, I pin a piece of paper labeling my pieces to everything not used yet. Everything goes in a large bag. I have one storage cube on my shelving system devoted to “in progress work”.

  • Lisa Marshall

    Very excited about the giveaway. I’m so happy to see your business growing!

  • Laura Crum

    unfortunately I don’t have a system yet, lol. I write my plan on a piece of paper which then gets shifted from one pile to another over the weeks I work on it.

  • Denise Elliott

    so happy for you reaching 2000 fans I know I love you guys

    • Thanks so much! We appreciate your support.

  • Kristina

    I’m so bad about organizing that I typically only try to have one project going on at once. For the rare occasions that I do have more than one, I just stack all of the parts of one in a corner and hope it doesn’t get disturbed and that I don’t forget what it all is haha. Downloading those printable now…maybe with your help I can learn to multitask 🙂 Thank you!

    • I hope they’re helpful. Please let me know if you have any feedback on them. I’d like to just work on one thing at a time, but with sometimes simultaneously running sew-alongs, testing patterns, orders, and trying to knock out the occasional other project, I seem to always have multiple things going on at once.

  • Heather Mausehardt

    Congrats on 2k!!!!

  • Suzanne Dommer

    I am still trying to make my sewing room sewable. How do you fit at least 3 industial sewing machines and at least 2 regular ones in 12 x 13 room? But when I figure it out I will be putting to use your printable, as I have jobs in house already to use them! Just need to get the machines where I can use them!

    • Wowza, I don’t know, but you’re welcome to post to our FaceBook group & see if anyone has some ideas. I don’t have that much space, but I don’t have that many machines either. I’d love some feedback if you end up using the printables.

  • Kelly Krisdina Mcloughlin

    I’m using our living room I have an order book but these will help!

  • Joenell Pérez

    Congrats! 2000 already!

  • Sarah Stanford

    My projects aren’t even slightly organized. Everything in progress is in a pile, all my pattern pieces are in a big pile (in a box, so they’re somewhat contained at least, but it’s not good!)…I’m a mess! Bags would be a good starting point, lol.

  • Sarh Snarski

    These are awesome! I really don’t have a system as of yet, but I basically just put them in a google spreadsheet and highlight what I’ve done. would like something better and something not digital

    • I’d love some feedback if you try the printables.

  • Vannessa Leppek

    My organization consists of throwing it on my table and hoping I remember what pattern it was when I get back to it. lol

    • That has totally been my method. Just toss it in a giant pile on the table or shove it in a drawer. I’m excited to be at least attempting to make things easier on myself. I waste so much time trying to figure out what the heck I was doing.

  • Bea Daniels

    my system is organized chaos! Thank you for the printables!

  • Thanks! We really appreciate how much people are supporting us.

  • We’d love some feedback if you use them.

  • Miki Bridges


  • This doesn’t really help for in progress projects, but for projects stuck in my head or finished projects that I want to blog about. I started an excel spreadsheet to list all projects, the pattern and fabric I used, the link to the pictures, etc. Then another tab for the projects I want to make; what fabric I purchased for it, what pattern it is, etc.

    • That’s a good idea. I tend to use OneNote for blog ideas, but Excel works just as well, I’m sure. I use Excel a lot for other things.

  • Ugh! I have too many email addresses! I logged into the giveaway as April Baylor using email abaylor at sewingnovice dot com, but that isn’t my email address! It’s april at sewingnovice dot com. Is there a way to get it changed?

    • If you win something, I’ll try to tag you on FaceBook. Just remind me then that your email address isn’t right, so I can pass along the correct one.

  • adaynasmile

    Thanks for hosting this awesome giveaway! So happy for you and can’t wait to see what the future holds for you. And happy birthday! Love your sewing organization printable. It would go well in gallon sized zip lock baggies with the pieces of the project. Might help those ufos get finished!

  • Krystal

    I really don’t have a system for organizing…unless spread out everywhere counts! I need to be more organized!!

  • Julie Phillips

    Awesome giveaway! Cheers to growing business!

  • Sheri Nelson Fowler

    I think I might start using these — they look great. I keep my projects in the jumbo size zipper bags (Hefty at the grocery store) and that way everything’s in one place. But putting this little tag right in the front visible would help me not have to look thru what’s in the bag to figure out what I’ve got going…..

    • I’d love to hear how they work for you.

  • Amanda Olson

    I like the zipper bags as well.

  • Robin L Hovland Davis

    I use gallon ziplock bags for smaller pieces. I usually just put a sticky note in the bag reminding me what I cut. For bigger projects I have larger zip bags. I also use the bigger bags to store my yarn and crochet WIPs.

  • Elsbeth Klotz

    I have a large basket with my current projects in bags. I’m not allowed to start a new project if I can’t squeeze it in to the basket, lol.

  • auschick

    I don’t use printables for mine — but I have started keeping the WIP’s in fabric bags – especially if I cut out a whole bunch of projects ready to sew.

  • Sarah M

    I don’t really have a system, I try to only work on one thing at a time and get it finished, though. Right now I just have piles of fabric waiting to be cut sitting on my ironing board. :-/ I love your printables, though, they look super handy and I might have to try them. 🙂

  • Diana Z

    Thanks for the giveaway. I am excited to get to know your shop and blog more. I hate stopping projects midway, but when I do they usually sit on my sewing table till they are done. Printed patterns are folded as best possible and put into folders for in my file cabinet.

  • Elisabeth O’Lone

    I love giveaways!

  • Dayna Johnson

    I really have no system. I like to try and finish one project before going to the next. But that doesn`t always work so I usually just stack everything in a basket.

  • Brenda Davis

    I am horrible at organizing my ‘in-progress’ projects! Basically, the fabric pieces get cut out and folded and put on a shelf. Sometimes for months! Lol.

  • Kenna Peters

    Love giveaways! My “in progress” system is pretty simple. I stick it in a pile on my sewing table and either do, or do not, get around to finishing it. Thanks for the downloads! Hope that helps keep me on track!

  • OhioLori

    Fun Give-a-way! 🙂 I have a bin, and yep….has “several” things in my “In Progress” projects lol I do fritter it down now & then tho 🙂

  • MaryLou

    My organization skills leave a lot to be desired. I use clear plastic zip bags to contain everything for a project. Where that bag end up is anyone’s guess. 🙂

  • Kara Malcolm

    Organization, whats that 😛
    Nah seriously though, i set my mind to a project and that’s it, until completed (same day) i just go at it because i NEED it finished 😛

  • Am new to quilting so I keep all my things in tubs

  • Janie

    I leave it on my design table. I have to leave it in sight or it will become a UFO. Good luck. Thank you for the giveaway.

  • Cheromee Warren

    Most of my in progress projects are cut out and left on the ironing table until i can get around to them. That’s about as far as I get with organization lol!

  • Elsa

    I have no real system…!!!I just put my WIP on the sewing table and sew on!

  • Colleen Branson

    not sure I have system, but I do lay my current sewing project on a cutting table or put it in a clear see thru bag if I have to start something for a gift and put the current aside for awhile.

  • I can’t even! Lots of great sponsors! Thanks for doing this!

  • Amber Delorme

    How awesome is this giveaway 🙂

    I’m a pretty organized Mamma, but with 3 girls who tend to pull everything out of my storage drawers and my Big bin, just to Check Out the Awesome colors & Fancy Prints..I’ll Admit that it Can get a litte messy at times..But Hey it Adds “Character” right LOLZ..
