Hello and thanks for stopping by! Today, I am excited to bring you this super handy “How to Make a Jumbo Tote Bag “tutorial.
My daughter asked me to make something for the grandkids that they could take their “stuff” to day care in. It needed to be large enough to hold their nap blanket and pillow, an extra set of cloths and all of the other essentials, but it also needed to be soft a flexible enough they could fold it up and store it in their cube at daycare.
I came up with this pattern. I used outdoor fabric for durability and fusible fleece to give them a bit of structure, but still soft and foldable.
I am in love with how they turned out.
By simply adjusting the size of the fabrics, you can make a tote for almost any occasion using this design. It’s the perfect beginner sewing friendly project.
Ready to make one? Here’s your step by step tutorial:
I can’t believe I’m already thinking about the Holidays! Where has this year gone? I want to get things ready a little ahead of time so I can sit back, sip eggnog and enjoy the kiddos this holiday season, so I went ahead and created this year’s personalized ornaments!
I am still working on those flannel scraps and decided to put them to use with an embroidery hoop!
To step it up a notch, I decided to create some wonky stitching around the edges, but this step is totally optional.
I think the stitching adds a little character and the handmade look, which I love.
I used a little HeatNBond, applied with the Cricut EasyPress to apply the canvas letters. You can see I reversed it on the letter D and used the flannel for the letter and the canvas for the background.
It’s a really easy way to create personalized ornaments for co-workers, family and friends!
Simply add an elastic string to the hoop closure and a little hot glued bow and voila… you’re all done! On to the next project.

Summer is upon us and that means, most likely, I will be losing yet another pair of sunglasses any day now! In an attempt NOT to lose my glasses, I have created a super easy (beginner sewing) pattern for you to keep those babies safe!
I mean, really, how can you misplace this colorful pouch (Fabric by Windham Fabrics).
I created a pattern in Cricut Design Space and let the Cricut Maker cut the fabric, interfacing & fleece for me. It really could not get any easier than this! If you’d like to grab the cut file, you can find it here.

Have you celebrated the Maker in YOU? There is a Maker inside each and every one of us, and I think it’s time we applaud our everyday creative selves!
It just so happens, I made this maker project with my Cricut Maker! How Cool is that!?!!?
It’s crazy easy and a really fun addition to your craft area. I made another one for Evie’s bedroom with her name on it.
I mean.. hello??? You can make this in any color scheme, any word, any occasion and it just adds that little bit of homemade magic to any room. I used HeatnBond Fusible Adhestive to add the letters that I cut out with the Cricut Maker. The Cricut Easy press made applying it super easy! Did you know Cricut now has fabric with the Fusible product already on it? They Do! You can find it here!

Hello! I am so happy you are here! I have been super busy with summer activities, but I couldn’t wait to get this fun tutorial up on the blog. How cute is this crazy easy zipper pouch.
I even made a mini version. Everything is cuter when it’s mini… why is that??
This is a lined zipper pouch that I made using the Cricut Maker/Cricut Design Space to make and cut all of the fabric pieces.
I used HeatnBond Adhesive to attach the monogram and HeatnBond Interfacing to give the bag some extra structure. I really love the overall look. Wouldn’t these be cute as bridesmaid gifts or graduation gifts? I can think of a million uses.
Let’s make one together. Here’s a step by step video tutorial. Don’t worry if you don’t have a Cricut – you can follow along and make your pattern on paper and use that as a template. I give you all of the measurements in the video. The products used are listed below the video and in the video description. I can’t wait to see what you make!

Hello! Today, I have a fun project over on the Thermoweb Blog. I was challenged to create an “Embroidery Hoop Caddy”. Caddy’s of this sort, have been around for quite awhile, so I wanted to try and make it a little different. Enter… HeatnBond Ultra and my Cricut Maker.
This was so much fun to make and it is 100% a no-sew project! The Cricut cut all of the pieces of fabric which I had lined with Thermoweb’s HeatnBond Ultra Adhesive. Once the pieces were cut, all I had to do was apply heat with an iron to adhere the pieces into place.
I used really gorgeous fabrics by Windham Fabrics. Who doesn’t love a teal fabric fox!! Wouldn’t it be fun to make 3 of them in various woodland creatures and add them as a decorative, but useful element to any craftroom or even a child’s bedroom.
I created the entire design in Cricut Design Space using Cricut Access Images and Basic Shapes. I changed the eyes at the last minute.
