OK, this might just be my favorite project so far. You guys! This is so fun! Did you know that Cricut Infusible Ink is basically the same as Sublimation? It is. While Infusbile Ink comes in the form of a paper-like transfer sheet and sublimation ink is a liquid, they both transfer by heating the ink up to a gaseous stage that can than be infused into a substrate. Well that gave me an idea. Let’s try to make a sequin pillow using a sublimation blank and Cricut Infusible Ink. It worked!
I used Cricut Infusible Ink and an image from a Girl and A Glue Gun to create this glittery beauty! It was so easy!
Of course, I had to make more pillows for the kids using my sublimation printer.
so, are you ready to crank out some sequin pillows for the holidays? I’ve got two tutorials for you. One features Infusible Ink and the other is using a sublimation printer.
This just might be my favorite use of Sequins. Did you know you can use Cricut Infusible Ink on a Sequin Pillow Blank to create really fun and interactive pillows. Take a look at how amazing this pillow turned out.
If you have a Sublimation printer, you can create similar pillows with even more customizations. Check out this one I made for my grandson.
The kids love their pillows! I love how easy it was to create fun pillows that were customized especially for them. Evie requested a pillow with Elsa (Frozen) pillow. I was able to create exactly what she wanted in less than 5 minutes.
These are going to make amazing gifts for the holidays, kids parties and let’s face it, that Maker pillow is a piece of Decor in my craftroom.
If you want to make a (or ten) sequin pillow of your own, watch my step by step tutorials below. I will walk you through using Cricut Infusible Ink in the first video and using a Sublimation printer in the second video.
If you follow me on social media, you know that my latest obession has been sublimation printing.
You may have seen me post a few of my projects, like this Mouse Pad,
Or these adorable onsies,
Or perhaps you saw the coasters I made for my son and his wife.
Maybe you saw these fun mugs
or a T-Shirt or two:
I even made a wine gift bag set. Pretty cute, eh?
So, what is all this sublimation stuff, anyway? Well, in the most simple of terms, it’s a form of printing onto a substrate such as a mug, tshirt, mousepad, etc. that forms a permanent bond. These prints are dishwasher safe, washer/dryer safe, etc. They will last as long as the item they are pressed on lasts. They won’t crack, or fade and they won’t peel or scratch off. In fact, you can’t even feel the designs. Pretty neat, don’t you think?
I think I have all of my stocking stuffers ready for December! Everyone is gettng coaster sets, mousepads and mugs! :). These quick little projects are so fun to make and personalize.

This has got to me the EASIEST sewing project, ever! Not only is it very beginner friendly, but it’s so practical. With this tutorial you can virtually create unlimited amounts of personalized pillows and personalized gifts. My friend, Karen Runge, showed me a similarly designed pillow and encouraged me to make a tutorial. I used the Cricut EasyPress and Iron on to create my design. You could also use this tutorial to create a blank for Infusible Ink, Embroidery, fabric pens and fabric markers. So many possiblities.
Let’s get right to the tutorial. You are going to want to make pillows for all of your friends and family. (Psssst.. these would make perfect holiday gifts!)
Thanks for stopping by! I am so excited to share with you the Brinkley Double Zipper Pouch / Cross body Bag. This is a fun and practical bag. It features two zipper pockets
as well as a surprise third pocket in the middle. It’s super roomy. I can easily fit my iphone XS Max inside the smaller pouch with plenty room to spare for keys, wallet, etc.
I made two different sizes. The smaller size is approximately 6 x 8 and the larger is 8×10.
I love that you can easily switch between a clutch to a cross body bag by simply changing the detachable strap.
The measurements are as follows:
2 Outer Fabrics 8″ x 10″ (small size 6 x 8) .
2 Lining Fabrics 8 x 10 (small size 6 x 8)
2 Fusible Fleece cut to 7.5 x 9.5
1 Fabric for wristlet strap 3″ x 15″ (lengthen or shorten to your preference)
1 Fabric (or vinyl) 2 x 4″ for tab
1 D-ring / 1 Swivel Lobster Clasp
I will be making several of these for Christmas gifts. Are you ready to make one (or three?). Get your zippers, some cute fabric and your favorite beverage and let’s get making!! Here is a step by step tutorial for you:
Hi there! Over in my Craft Crazy with Lorrie nuneMAKER Facebook Group I posted a bag similar to this quite awhile ago. It was this bag:
and boy did I have a lot of request to make a tutorial. Life got in the way… my son got married. I have been so busy with wedding planning, guests every weekend, that I just didn’t have time to create a tutorial.
I did, however, take the time one afternoon to make a mock up so that I could get the dimensions down. I came up with this tote:
Today, I finally had a chance to take a little bit from each bag and change it up just a little more and create the “Ashley” tote. I love it so much.
The fabric makes me happy and the quilting just gives me all the feels.
Triangle Pouches are super fun to make and they look harder than they really are. It’s really just a few straight seams and you’re done.
I looked around at Pinterest and Youtube and couldn’t find any tutorials showing how to fully enclose all the of the seams in the lining. I really love the simplisity of the patterns I saw on Pinterest, but I didn’t love seeing the raw edged seams on the lining. I wanted the inside to be as pretty as the outside.
So, I created my own tutorial with a completely finished linining. It’s really not hard at all and only adds 2 extra steps.
They turned out great and I can’t wait to give a few to some friends. They are also the perfect STOCKING STUFFER size! You could add a chapstick, handsanitzer or something fun and stuff them into the stocking or even hang them from the stocking. So many ideas.
Are you ready for the tutorial and to find out how I enclosed all of the seams? Here you go!
Today, I have a super fun, super easy project for you! You can make this with or without the Cricut in just a few minutes. They are perfect for to school and moms on the go.
You won’t be able to stop at just one! They are quick to make. I can see lots of stocking stuffers in my future!
Don’t forget to use the Cricut EasyPress to personalize with Iron On!
I’ve got a FREE Pattern (SVG & PDF). You can cut these so easily if you have a Cricut. If you don’t have a Cricut use the PDF and create a pattern you can cut with scissors. You can grab both patterns HERE.
Ready for the step by step instructions? Here you go!
iI you create one or two or five, please be sure and tag me on social media! I would LOVE to see them!
This is probably one of the fastest, easiest tutorials I have made. You can watch it all in the step by step video tutorial here:
