Today at www.quiltsocial.com I'm making this one hour felt mini needle/sewing kit that is small but mighty and holds lots of sewing essentials and fits in the palm of your hands. Also a great little gift idea. Follow along here with all pattern instructions and grab the free pattern download.
Hi everyone, I hope you are keeping warm and toasty this weekend with our minus degree weather!
Speaking of warm..... this week at www.quiltsocial.com from Dec 2-6th, I'll be talking about getting ready for holiday gift giving and DIY'ing the gift of warmth in the form of a last minute and super easy Fireside Drunkards Path Lap Quilt.
I have used Banyan Batiks, Jungle Rose Cool fabric for this project from Northcott, I talk about the stuff needed to make it, how to cut it out, easy sewing with 1/4 circles, innovative "appliquilting", super duper fast sandwiching and creative quilt design ideas. Free Pattern Download!!!! Yay
Follow along Dec 2-6th at www.quiltsocial.com and give this quilt a try. The fabric is so pretty !
Monday to Friday this week I am blogging all about Bosal In-R-Form, a fantastic foam stabilizer for bags.
Today, I started the DATE NIGHT CLUTCH and seriously it's easy, there are lots of small steps to make it ( but they are baby steps). Also, learn to add a professional, discreet zippered pocket, use D rings and a lobster claw to add and/or remove straps.
So join me here to see what it's all about and make yourself this cute clutch. You deserve it!
I'm so excited as I received some goodies in the mail a few weeks ago and I'll show you what they are below:
I was thinking bags when coming up with my concept for QUILTsocial and Bosal In-R-Form is just the product to make these bags oh so structured, sturdy and professional.
I asked for some bag hardware and was sent lots. There will be future posts using all of this hardware from UNIQUE Sewing but I also used some for next weeks blogging.
It's SEW nice to make DIY bags with BOSAL!
Check out my blogging with QUILTsocial next week Oct 14-18 all about Bag making with BOSAL,UNIQUE Sewing and Northcott Fabric. There's a free pattern download and complete instructions on how to make a sturdy (carry it all) "Library Tote" and a really cute "Date Night Clutch".
