Don’t those spools of thread organized in the colors of the rainbow make you happy? I think human eyes love to see rainbows, there is just something so joyful about them. Let me show you how to arrange your threads in ROYGBIV order!
Yesterday I had a day full of bad news. Nothing really terrible like someone died. Just things like Airbnb cancelled our vacation reservation, the lady at the nail salon said no more gel nail polish until my nails get stronger, and I can’t get a doctor’s appointment that I want for over a month.
It seemed like the bad news would not stop coming.
So I hid in my sewing room and made a rainbow. It helped!
Just a simple creative exercise.
With a beautiful result.
Do you need a rainbow in your sewing space? See how you can create one in my latest Studio Chat video. It should play automatically in the video player on this page. If it doesn’t, check it out on my YouTube channel.
In the video I was using the Ultimate 3-in-1 Color Tool to talk about the color wheel. It’s one of many color theory books and helps that are available.
So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
And here are some of my other favorite rainbow-themed projects:
Sew an organizer covered with pockets that you can hang in your closet!

There are pockets on both sides plus a big interior pocket so every bit of space is used. I’ll show you easy step by step instructions for sewing this organizer and putting it to use in your home.

At my daughter Chloe’s high school (can you believe my baby started high school???), the lunch lines are so long that she has been skipping lunch! She’s always starving by the time she gets home because she doesn’t want to carry a big lunch bag as well as her heavy backpack – poor girl!
I am so in love with the beautiful look of simple patchwork quilts with lots of squares. This is the perfect way to use up fabric scraps like I did, or you can make a beautifully coordinated quilt with pre-cut 2 1/2’’ square fabric pieces that come in mini-charm packs.
I’m also in love with the process. If you feel like quilt making is your escape from the world and sitting down to sew for a few hours makes your troubles fade away… this is the quilt for you!
Sew an easy beautiful apron with this free sewing pattern that only uses one yard of fabric! Whether you are sewing for yourself or for a friend, an apron always comes in handy and makes a great gift. This blog post includes a link to a free template that I digitized for you.

Sew a beautiful Aunt Dinah Quilt Pattern with just 3 yards of fabric! 3 yard quilt patterns are fast and easy to sew. If you have 3 one yard cuts of fabric in your stash and are feeling creative, let’s…
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you are finding time to enjoy with your family and loved ones, and cooking up some creative projects too. Like I’ve done in the past, I have scoured the internet plus reached out to my…
One of my New Year’s resolutions this year was to be more organized… ha ha ha ha ha! Just like every year. Was it yours too? I’d much rather be sewing than organizing closets. Here are my favorite free sewing patterns and tutorials for baskets, pouches, bags, and other sewing projects to help us all at least pretend that we are trying to be more organized!
I love it! And yes, if I have a bad day I’m gonna hide in my sewing room too 🙂
I’ve linked up my embroidered Mother’s Day card idea. It is really more of a paper craft project but does have a sewing element. If it’s too much of a stretch to fit with your link up’s sewing theme then please feel free to just delete it! Have a wonderful weekend, I hope your rainbow threads continue to keep your spirts up when life throws little obstacles in your way !
I hope thigs will get better soon, no more bad news! Cute rainbow
Nothing like a little color to make everything better.
