I have a really fun and beginner applique friendly project for you. I wanted to use these really soft burp cloths I purchased from Defono to create a set of burp cloths that are perfect for a newborn gift or baby shower. I love the quality of the burp cloths, but I wanted to add a little color and personalization.
I went on the hunt for some cute applique truck designs and found this really cute set from Appliquetion Station. The set I purchased has four different trucks, all of which are equally adorable. I chose to use the dump truck and the cement mixer.
I chose to use a monogram for the 3rd burp cloth. Using the same fabrics and color families for each cloth made this set come together easily.
I made a tutorial to walk you through making the cement mixer, but each file is digitized the same way. You can use your single needle or multi-needle machine and follow along. I used my Ricoma EM1010 Multi-needle machine, which I absolutely love.
I mean who doesn’t love to put on a bright, happy headband and make a statement. You can mix and match the headband bows by simply untying and putting it on a different headband. I cannot wait to see Evie sporting one, but since my cute model isn’t here, you’ll have to settle for me :). Sorry about that, but I wanted you to see just how fun they are.
I just LOVE them! They make me happy just looking at them.
I used the same Mini Template that I used for the Mini Urban Scrunchies. You can find the Original Urban Scrunchie Post here. I love the fact that you get two projects from the same template. Keep in mind, the Original Template was much larger and longer. I used the MIni here.
Here are other ways to use the same template:
Compared to original Urban Scrunchie.
I see headbands in the girls’ stockings this year.
Are you ready for the step by step tutorial? I thought you might be.

Hello! Happy Saturday! Speaking of Saturday… next weekend I am headed to a wedding reception for a married young couple. I wanted to give them a little bit of handmade fun to help celebrate the occassion. I came up with this wood themed set.
I used the Cricut EasyPress 2 to add all of the personalization! It looks like its engraved or wood burned, but it’s not!
I thought about the fact that soon they would be celebrating their “First Christmas as Mr. and Mrs” and thought they needed a keepsake…. and besides, it matches!
The EasyPress 2 makes it so easy to customize all of your handmade goodies (and we won’t tell if you personalize store bought items, too! ) 🙂
These gifts are “made with love” and I can’t wait to share them with the Bride and Groom.
You know, I had to make a tutorial to go along with this! I think this is a really fun and really inexpensive gift idea and with the holidays around the corner, you just might want to grab some wood slices and create your own!
Hey there! Have you heard the great news? Cricut now has FUSIBLE FABRIC! What is fusible fabric? Well it’s cotton fabric that already has a fusible product on the back so that with the use of an iron or the Cricut EasyPress you can make your very own fabric applique projects!
I wanted to make a little Cricut care package for a friend, so I cut out a Cricut “C” with my Cricut Maker and applied it with the EasyPress. It was so easy and so fast to make this adorable miniature tote bag!
Hint… you can find this Cricut Logo in the Cricut Library.. just search “Cricut”.
There are tons of varieties of colors. Each roll of Fusible Fabric comes with four different designs. Here are some of the choices available:
I really want to collect them all! (Don’t judge.. I know I have a problem!) . They are so cute! I can think of so many projects to use them on.
The Cricut Fusible Fabric is available now! You can save an additional 10% and get free shipping with my code LORRIE and if you are an Access member you will save ANOTHER 10%! Quite the deal, right!?!?!
I put together a little video showing how I made the totebag! I can’t wait to sew what you make!

What is it about everything baby that is just…instantly cute! I had a big response to the baby bib gift set I posted earlier, so I decided to create a tutorial.
This project is PERFECT for a beginner sewist. The bib can easily be made with 2 fat quarters (for a reversible look), or just one if you don’t mind both sides matching. I prefer to use a flannel or terry cloth fabric for the back just to give it that soft feel and add some extra absorbency. I used a Cricut Quilting Kit for the fabric. I just love how all of their Riley Blake patterned fabrics go so well together.
If you haven’t upgraded to the Cricut Maker yet yet, don’t worry. You can make this with the Cricut Explore (or even a Silhouette). Simply follow along and cut the pattern pieces in cardstock, then use the cardstock as a pattern piece to cut your fabric by hand. Easy Peasy! Of course, I love using the Cricut Maker to cut all of my fabric pieces.
I’ve provided you with the free SVG file to use for your pattern. You can download it here. Be sure and turn off the word layers when you cut the file.
The bib is already sized for you, simply upload it into Cricut Design Space (or Silhouette Studio) and you’re ready to go.
Here’s a picture of another gift set I made using this pattern.

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE my Cricut Maker? I do! It has opened up a whole new world of crafting for me. I made this cute little gift set in one afternoon.
The Cricut Maker cut all of the fabric pieces for me. I love that each piece is precisely cut so that all I have to do is stitch it together. I created the bib design in Adobe Illustrator and simply uploaded the pattern to Cricut Design Space.
Even this sweet little bow was created using pattern pieces cut by the Cricut Maker.
I think the real winner of this entire gift set is the adorable fabrics! I bought the Little Dolly Baby Size Quilt Set from Cricut and used the fabrics to create this adorable baby gift set. The Burp cloth is made from fabric and a cloth diaper. It’s so soft and absorbant for baby and for mom.
I can’t wait to use more of the fabrics on future gift sets.
