Tips for Lefties
Seems like I am getting more and more questions about tips for using my ruler and method for lefties!
I put together a little handout (link below) that gives tips and some edited instructions from the Skinny Robin 45˚ and Fat Robin 60˚ Books.
This handout is also available on my website under the TIPS tab.
My best tip is to
turn the book upside down when you are looking at the illustrations.

Compass Chameleon Booklet
For my Spring 2018 Schoolhouse presentation, I gave out this booklet which shows some of my best and most basic patterns in other fabric options. I was trying to show folks that no matter if you are traditional or modern, or somewhere in between, there is a compass project that suits you!
