I guess you can read that anyway you’d like – this tutorial creates a pretty pillowcase, and it’s also pretty quick!
My sewing skills are pretty much limited to making my machine go forwards and backwards with a straight stitch. If you can do that (and also handle a pair of scissors), you can make this skirt. This lesson plan comes largely thanks to Susan of freshly picked , whose incredible and much more lucid elastic-waist skirt pattern you can find here . The first several steps are hers, and are much easier to understand on her blog. Thanks also to Kendi , who told me that I could add text using Picasa and contributed to any clarity this lesson plan has. P.S.
The mild temperatures of the last couple of days got me all energized and in an early Spring mood. This was especially true at the beginning of the week when we had a lovely sun on top. I have been cleaning out closets, laundering sheets and blankets, doing lots of ironing, ... and a couple of early Spring crafts, one of which even resulted in this tutorial - the first one of 2011!
hey there, Vanessa from V and Co . here. i've had this quilt bouncing around in my head for quite some time. so when i saw the "make life" line by sweetwater , i instantly knew that this quilt needed to be made out of this line. it seems like everywhere i turn someone is announcing that they are pregnant or that they just found out what they are having. with just one layer cake i was able to make two completely different color scheme quilts, and i still have some left that i'm working with (another tutorial in the works with the leftovers!) shall we get started? 1 make life layer cake. for each quilt: 1 1/4 yards of background fabric (shown are:5424 20 Apple and 5424 24 Earth ) 1 1/2 yards fabric for back (used but now shown: 5421 25 Ocean, and 5421 22 Apple 1/2 yard of fabric for binding (5424 19 Ocean and 5424 11 Apple) pattern for words ( get pdf here ) heat and bond
Thanks for the nice comments on my previous post! I've used my new bag every single day now and love it! The gold triangles definitely amplify the first sun rays!! As promised, I wrote down the entire process - for me, so I won't repeat my mistakes and for you, so you can give this a try, since really, as scary as it may seem, leather actually is a very nice material to work with.
Hello! This is my second posting! Yeah! I am really excited about exploring what I can do with this blog. Creating a new blog is so much fun.
Here comes the tutorial for the puffy pouch ;) As I promised, I am introducing two ways to make this pouch, one made with a 5" flex frame which may not be very accessible and the other made with velcro which is fairly easily found at any craft stores. (The flex frame can be spotted at here , here , and here .) I love this pouch either way.
sided pace mat tutorial yesterday and here I am hosting a second stop with a tutorial on how to make these easy-peasy organizer baskets! Not ready to think about Christmas yet? Me neither, but we know it will come before we know it! Jennifer picked this perfect timing to get this rolling so that we have plenty of time to whip up gifts!
A huge thanks to Dana and Disney for doing such a great job of rounding up all sorts of wonderful mother's day projects! Materials needed: 1/4 yard each of three coordinating fabrics (you'll definitely have scraps leftover) 8" zipper (you can always purchase a longer zipper and shorten it, just follow the directions on the package scraps of medium weight fusible interfacing Cutting the pieces: For the main exterior, cut two pieces, one 5.5" tall by 9" wide, and one 5.5" tall by 13" wide (this will be the gathered front) Pieces of medium weight fusible interfacing for exterior pieces of clutch: (2) 5.5" tall by 9" wide For the front band, cut one piece 4" tall by 9" wide. For the lining, cut two pieces 5.5" tall by 9" wide For the zipper end covers: two pieces 1.5" tall by 2.5" wide.
Thank you to many of you who requested a tutorial on this pouch. This wristlet, measuring approximately 6 3/4" x 5", has some fun features including three inside pockets for cards and a chap stick and a little loop outside the pouch that holds a key chain. I have been making tons of these pouches just because this project is simple, easy, quick, fun, and quite addictive, so I hope you enjoy this tutorial.
We had grapes this weekend. So? They were really good. Seedless white grapes and they came in one of those plastic bags , with cuts all over to make it stretchy. Hours after we had the grapes, while in the kitchen, my eye fell upon the plastic bag again.
This Mother's Day, make something beautiful for Mom. Credit: Megan Reardon Wondering about what to make Mom for Mother's Day? I've been thinking about traditional gifts like flower corsages and lockets, and I decided to combine the two. This felt dahlia pin has a secret pocket in the back that can hold a picture or message for your favorite mom. You'll need: - scissors - Fabri-tac adhesive - two sheets craft felt, one for the flower and one in a contrasting color for the back - needle and thread - brooch pin (available in the beading section of craft stores) - a bit of thin cardboard (a cereal box from your recycling bin will be perfect for this)
(For Personal Use Only) My husband and I are Mac fanatics, so when the Ipad first made its appearance I knew it was only a matter of time before it made its way into our home. The only problem… the cases are not my style. So I decided to make my own.
Let me just say that writing up a sewing tutorial is quite the process! I've been at it since last night.
