Reversible, Lined, Color-blocked TOTE

Reversible, Lined, Color-blocked TOTE
I’ve got a new summer bag that I totally love. It’s nice and heavy-weight, the perfect size for all my stuff, annnnd…… It’s reversible! Yay! It’s good to have options. Here are the TOTE bag versions we’ve tried so far…. This time around we’ll make it: • reversible (similar to having a lining) • color-blocked on the outside with heavy Duck Cloth (read more about duck cloth and other fabrics in my book) • DIY handles Summer, Summer, Summer time. Let’s get started. Start by cutting all your bag pieces. The reversible bag is basically two separate bags, sewn together at the top. Decide what size you’d like for your bag. Start by sewing the handles. If you’re using lightweight fabrics, place right sides of the fabric together and sew down each side. However, with heavy duck cloth it’s very difficult to pull the fabric right-side out. Now piece together the bag fronts and backs…. Now your bag pieces are ready to assemble. Then Box out the bottom of each bag, about 2 1/2 inches on each side. Related:  yasserjankieh

sewing 101: making a pouf Add a burst of color to your room with this crafty pouf! At 17” wide and 10” deep, it’s large enough to serve as floor seating or a foot stool. (And if you have pets, I have a feeling they may want to make this their new favorite spot!) This project is a little challenging to sew, but it’s not too difficult, so if you’re comfortable with the basics of sewing, give it a try. You can make a colorwheel effect with a range of solid colors, or choose a variety of patterned fabrics for a louder patchwork effect. Medium-weight cottons work well for this design (check out quilting shops for great selections of solids and prints). I love the idea of making a set of these poufs in a range of sizes, for a sculptural stack of cushions that will become a room element in their own right. CLICK HERE for the full how-to after the jump! Finished Dimensions: 17” diameter by 10” tall What You’ll Need ¼ yard each 12 coordinating fabrics (I used quilting cottons) 1 yard muslin 3 pounds fiberfill stuffing iron 1.

Jewelry Organizer (and a giveaway) UPDATE PART 2: My Jewelry Organizer won the Elmer's Spring Creation Contest. I'm absolutely thrilled. Aside from receiving a visa gift card for winning, I also had the privilege of drawing 3 more winners from the comments via random.org to each receive an Elmer's DIY kit. The winners were: April, Barbara (VinoLuci), and Bestie. UPDATED: This giveaway has closed. Remember when I made the jewelry organizer for Marisol's bedroom? I'm always up for a good challenge, especially when it comes to crafting and decorating so I happily accepted and set to work making this: Cause, mama didn't have a pretty jewelry organizer, and instead her jewelry looked a little like this: Yes, I'm hiding my head in shame. In my head I knew how I wanted to organize it, but it was a matter of finding the right supplies. But it obviously needed a lot of work. Now we are onto the fun part. Step 1: Apply a sealer to the wood. Step 2: Apply your first color - I used walnut. Step 3: Apply the crackle.

Hanging Storage Baskets by The Mother Huddle Fabric Cuts: From your fabric cut six 18½ x 28 inch pieces, and three 4 x 10 ½ inch pieces. You will then iron them onto you interfacing per it's instructions, and then cut out. Trust me, it's easier than cutting out the pellon and then ironing! As a side note, the ironing is the longest part of this project...if I had a teenager I would have paid top dollar to have them do it, just sayin'! Sewing: Now for the fun part! Take one of your 18 ½ x 28 inch pieces and fold it in half with right side in, short ends together. You will need two sheets for one basket, and they should look like this. Leaving them wrong side out, take and fold your corners down like shown. Take a ruler and mark a line 7½ inches long as shown and pin. It does help if you have a cutting mat with measurements, you can see how I lined up the corners to make sure they were symmetrical. Now sew along the lines on each of your corners. using the same pins so that you are pinning them together. See, one nice and clean seam.

Life with Lucie & Ella: How to Make Custom Storage Boxes Yesterday, I posted about the stylish storage box tutorial that I shared over at DIY Your Way this week. Man, I just love these boxes! But, it got me to thinking that shoeboxes are not always the size of box that we need for a specific purpose. For instance, I have this little storage tower in our dining room that has squarish shelves. Personally, I'd rather have boxes that fit the space. Also, when I was making my woven paper boxes, I realized the importance of a loose-fitting lid. But, you can make your own boxes (or lids) to your own specifications for practically no money at all. How to Make a Custom Storage Box: Supplies: cereal boxespaper cutter (or scissors and ruler)Modge Podge & brush tape Directions:1. 3. 4. Then, lift up two adjacent sides and tape together.

» Fabric Scrap Basket Tutorial I thought I’d share with you how to make my fabric scrap “basket”. It’s VERY simple. I whipped out another two baskets in no time at all. Now I have all of my smaller scraps organized into small, medium and large groupings. Did I even mention I’m a Capricorn and like to be organized to a fault? No? Directions 1. 2. **I like my interior to fit and not be so rumpled from too much fabric, so this is why I cut my interior slightly smaller. 3. If you are using fusible interfacing I suggest fusing that to your fabric before cutting. 4. Note: You could also just cut a 4-1/2” squares individually out of each corner, it just goes a bit faster folding and cutting all at once. 5. 6. 7. Note: By “right sides together” I mean to have the fabric facing out on your exterior piece, and the fabric facing in on your interior piece. 8. 9. I suggest you start with a pin in the center, and then half way between that and your edge seam, as shown in the second picture above. 10. 11. 12. 13. And you’re done!
