1 hour bag- tutorial
This bag is so easy ! This is the new bag I made to take back to work this term. It took less than an hour from choosing the fabric to dumping my junk in it. In fact this tutorial took waaaayyy longer than the bag ! (the colours are great in real life but the orange doesn't photograph very well - sorry ) This pattern is on a piece of A4 paper so I'm sure you can work it out from that. You will need: Using the pattern piece and cutting on the fold of your fabrics. 2 pieces in your handbag fabric2 pieces in your lining fabric2 pieces in wadding or batting to give your bag a bit of body.1 magnetic purse snap (optional)2 x 6 1/2 inch squares of fabric for the pocket (optional).2 strips of fabric 3 inches x approx 29 inches for the strap1 strip of wadding about 2 1/2 inches by 292 large Buttons Start with the pocket. Turn right sides out through the gap. . Pin your pocket to the right side of one of your bag linings. I like to do two lines - looks good and adds a bit of strength too.

Supereasy and soft fleece baby blanket tutorial One of the things I've made for Savannah that has gotten the most use over the years is a double-sided fleece blanket (okay she has at least four of them). When she was little, it protected her from hard surfaces for tummy play and protected my carpets from baby drool. Later they were used in the car to keep her warm before the car warmed up.

So to us, they are indispensable (not to mention machine-washable, soft, and durable). 1.

Fuzzy Pillows from a Surprising Source Judging from yesterday’s comments, there are faux fur haters and there are faux fur lovers, and not much in between. If the former is you, please come back tomorrow because you will simply detest my latest creation. I happen to fall into the latter category – I am a lover of faux fur, just as long as it is used in very small doses and in a chic and casual way. These days, it’s not just faux fur on my mind, but texture. Soft texture.
