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:

I am so happy about this Shabby Fabric Basket. This project came together so quickly and so easily and even better, so inexpensively!
You may remember my original fabric basket from a placemat video. This basket is a DIY inspired version of that one and it’s almost just as easy to make. Fabric baskets are so popular. You can use them for organization, a flower pot cover, as a decorative element or a whole plethora of other uses.
I made this one for my friend, Teri, who is a leopard loving pink girl. It is fun and lively, much like she is.
I also toyed with the idea of adding Rae Dunn inspired words to a bag. What do you think?
Change the fabric and you’ve got an Easter Basket, a Mother’s Day Basket, a gift basket, and more.
As always, I’ve got a step by step tutorial for you. You can find it below.
If you have followed me for very long, you know that I love to use things (like placemats) in ways that you might not think about. I have long been a user of canvas drop cloths! I’ve made tote bags, pouches, wall hangings and so much more from them. They are super inexpensive and 1 drop cloth is enough for dozens of projects! (Stay tuned for more in the near future!
Don’t mind Brinkley’s “thrilled face”. No animals were hurt or abused during the filiming of this video. After 30 minutes of trying to get her to pose for a photo, unsuccessfully, I might add, she curled up in her bed and practically begged me to try again! Dogs, gotta love them.
Today, I combined my love of beginner friendly sewing projects, the drop cloth and my love for all things Cricut Maker and Cricut EasyPress to create this super fun and trendy Rae Dunn Inspired Pillow Cover.
Hi there and welcome back. Today, I am sharing how I made this personalized wooden gift box.
You may recall last week, I made this personalized flask and matchingetched shot glasses for my son to use to ask his friends to stand up with him in his wedding. We wanted to present them in a wooden box.
I decided to use Cricut Vinyl Iron On rather than adhesive vinyl. Adhesive vinyl can be hard to adhere to wood because it doesn’t want to grip easily. Iron on is the perfect solution. The small 6 x 7 Cricut EasyPress made it even easier.
We are really pleased with how this whole gift set turned out. Watch the step by step tutorial to find out what settings I used on the Cricut EasyPress and a few tips when applying iron on to wood.
