Still learning but have made 3 rag quilts from watching your videos. Thanks

A helpful video for beginners like me!

I don't currently have many sewing tools for my craft room, but have been going over some of the tutorials on your website for ideas. It has been a lot of fun so far and got the cogs turning. Given that I have been looking at handing organizers of late, I think that I might move onto such a project after I get some appropriate fabric, interfacing and whatnot. I am also considering making a table cloth with matching cutlery holder reversible placemats and coasters. I only wish that I had a sewing machine for the projects. Perhaps I will convince hubby that it will be used enough to warrant the purchase.

I bought fleece fabric to make a bathrobe for my husband but I can not find instructions on how to line it with terry cloth or a complementary colored fleece fabric. The ones I see that are professionally made are serged and I don't have a serger. I can use an overlocking stitch but not sure how to put it all together.
