This week on YouTube!

One of the most popular bags in the sewing community, the Lola by Swoon has been on my list for ages. Don't let those curves fool you, this bag is not a challenging one! You can do it!

The New Stuff:


I get just as excited about new interfacing as I do about new fabric. The Sewfuse and Sewfuse Plus from Castine Handcrafted arrived and I'm so excited to play with them!

I may have gone a bit overboard on my recent Zipper Valley order! This Canadian based company has SO MANY options and the quality is fantastic!

Zipper Valley also sent over this beautiful assortment of zipper pulls! Those roller skates make me want to whip out my old wheels and do some dance skating!

These textured vinyls from Indo Love Kreations are some of my favorite to work with! They're a thinner weight and beginner friendly, but look very high end!

These ADORABLE labels for your scissors were gifted to me from April at Tis Sew Sweet, and I'm just loving them! Just clip them onto your scissors to always avoid a mix up.

These little waxy cleaning brushes have become some of my favorite to use! They get into all the tight spots on all of my machines! And to pull out those tiny threads stuck in the back, I picked up these long tweezers to help!

You say Mystery Box, I ask where to pay. I love a good surprise bundle of sewing goodies! This box from Wizardy Stitchery was full of such fun items, a couple totally new to me!

SNACKS FABRIC! These prints are making me seriously hungry. Knitorious Fabrics has some of the best prints, and I see many snack bags in my future! 

I know, I order too much fabric. But look at this! Not only does Hapa Fabrics have the most vibrant prints, it's also the SOFTEST cotton woven you'll find. 

Remember how I said I love a Mystery Box? And did you notice how much I adore fabric? Well, here's the best of both worlds! The Freaking Fabulous Fabric Club from My Little Shindig is such a fun subscription, and I've been so lucky to not only be gifted these, but also some extras to giveaway! Stay tuned to OklaRoots on social media to learn more!
