Transform Your Space. Welcome to our latest series with , celebrating the new . I was excited to get to meet Vanessa at Spring Quilt Market in Kansas City, and talk with her about our plans for this series. Even though she was getting over a bad head cold, she was just delightful. I would caption her photo, " Bundle o' Creative Energy . " As the doting mama to four little darlings, Vanessa somehow also finds time to be a designer, author, quilter, sewer... oh for goodness sakes, let's just say: doer of many things. One of Vanessa's passions is organizing. {capture the moment}: Introducing Tiny Treats: Birthday. I am so glad to hear how excited many of you are for the products we are releasing this month!

It has really convenient and easy to adjust dials to change settings on the fly (and because you're looking at the LCD screen, you can see, almost in real time, what's happening.) And lastly, this is pretty important to me, there are so many more points of focus you can select rather than just the 9 that the Mark II has! ★ Le tuto de mon organisateur de sac. Attention, voici venu le post le plus long jamais écrit sur ce blog...

★ Le tuto de mon organisateur de sac

J'ai bossé dur, fait des dizaines de photos et pris plein de mesures pour vous livrer, enfin, le petit tuto promis il y a quelques semaines. Alors, si vous êtes partantes pour vous coudre ça : (organisateur avec 5 poches à l’extérieur et 2 poches + 4 emplacements de cartes + une pochette zippée + un porte-clés à l’intérieur) et bien, je vais tenter de vous expliquer ! D'abord le matos : NB : les mesures indiquées comprennent les marges de couture d’1 cm Pour l’extérieur : Du simili cuir épais et assez rigide (c’est lui qui donnera de la tenue à l’organisateur) 1 rectangle de 32 x 36 cm 1 rectangle de 32 x 24 cm Du tissu pour la doublure des poches (ici du taupe à petits pois) Du biais (ici je l’ai choisi contrastant par rapport au simili cuir noir, mais assorti à mes tissus intérieurs)

Sewing Tutorials on #Artisan-Tutorials - deviantART. Back with buckets ! Hiya, Here is my very belated bucket tutorial.

Back with buckets !

I was hoping to do this for Whiplash but never mind. I fluffed the first lot of photos but had to use one of them here as I missed a step - just ignore the fact that the fabrics change won't you? There are probably a gazillion versions of these floating around in the craft cyberspace, so these are the way I make mine. They are super useful for little things in the sewing room or for hair ties and stuff ! For each bucket you will need:· 5 ½ x 18 ½ inch strips of outer fabric, light wadding and iron–on interfacing.· 6 x 18 ½ inch strip of lining fabric (note it is a bit bigger so you get the nice trim at the top.· Circles measuring 6 inches across in outer, wadding, interfacing and lining for the base.

Step 1. With outer fabric and lining right sides together (and the wadding interfaced piece under the outer fabric) sew along the long (18 1/2 inch) edge that will be the top of the bucket. You can see the layers here. Open up and press the seam. 190 Free Tote Bag Sewing Patterns! Sew tote bags with this collection of over 200 free tote bag patterns collected from all over the web.

And because tote bags usually consist of simple shapes and are quick to sew (especially if left unlined), they can be an excellent first project for a beginner who’s just learning how to sew (see Pillow Patterns and Apron Patterns for more great beginner sewing projects). And because tote bags are often made from heavy fabrics like cotton canvas (and attaching the handles can require stitching through several layers of heavy material), remember to use a thicker sewing machine needle in your machine, such as a denim or jeans needle, which will be able to pierce through those thick, heavy layers easily and without breaking.

Consider adding a lining to your tote bag. Not only will it give your bag a nice finish on the inside, but the second layer of fabric will also help strengthen the bag (not all the bags shown on these pages are lined, but some are).
