Part 2 – Cutting your tubes, using your seam ripper and sewing rows back together. Miss Part 1? You can find it here! By now you should have all your fabric cut and sewn together into tubes. Depending on which pattern you are doing you should either have four tubes sewn together for the placemats or two tubes for the table runner. If you are doing both you will have six tubes total!
I hope the instructions make sense, and that you enjoy making this blanket as much as I did. My advice...start small. Try a doll quilt or baby quilt before you get yourself in too deep. I would also say that as you increase the size of the quilt, increase the size of your squares.
Scrappy Hoop Sampler Tutorial using Freezer Paper Applique. You can make this project any size you like. My hoop measure 8″ but you could go bigger or smaller or a different shape hoop. I really like the oval shaped ones . Or if hoops aren’t your thing you could go square or rectangle and stretch your fabric over a canvas or pop it in a regular picture frame.
Hi There. So I worked hard to create a tutorial for you to make one of my favorite things… My oilcloth wristlet. It is cute, fun and super convenient for quick trips out, walking kids to the park, carrying essentials at the gym or on a bike ride (the large strap fits nicely over the handlebars).
One of my favorite crafting techniques is jewelry stitching because the supplies are easily portable. So when I am camping with the family I can still squeeze in a little bit of crafting. I’m not so sure my sewing machine would fit in around the campfire.
I wanted to do a tutorial for a simple little pouch. Something no-fuss that could be made in a few short hours. I don't know about you, but I have a TON of friends, family, and coworkers that I have to make birthday and Christmas presents for, so as much as I love show-stopping gifts and elaborate bags & pouches, sometimes it's nice to have a small, quick gift in your repertoire :)
