How to make a face mask

masks

Hello there.  Doug asked me to make a couple of face mask to have on hand in the event that we need them.  I posted them in my Facebook Groups and immediately had a ton of requests to make a tutorial.  I am posting the tutorial of these masks with the disclaimer, I followed THIS PDF tutorial which was recommended by a hospital.  I do not know the exact effectiveness of the face mask, but I do know, it provides an added layer of protection.

I have also provide a Cricut Design Space file for those of you who have a Cricut Maker.

You can find the Cricut Design Space ADULT Size File by Clicking HERE. You can find the Cricut Design Space CHILD by Clicking Here.

For those who do not have a die cutting machine, you don’t need one.  This is two simple rectangles that can easily be cut by hand.

Please do your research. This is not a protection from the Corona VIrus. This is simply an added barrier between you and the outside world. Visit the CDC website for the best way to protect yourself from the Virus.

 

Here is the Tutorial:

 

How to Make Envelope Pillow Covers

southbendpillowThis 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!)

Triangle Jelly Pouches

I had an idea in the middle of the night and could hardly wait until it was time to get up so I could give this a shot.  The Triangle Jelly Pouch!

IMG_5633I had so much fun making the fully lined fabric pouches (you can find that tutorial here), that I thought what would be even more fun, than to create a clear version.

I mean, seriously, how cute would these be hanging off a backpack, or even just stuffed with treats.  I would totally use that purple one and fill it with Halloween Goodies for the kids.

You could also make these out of faux leather or vinyl for another look.  Check out one of my favorite shops on Etsy called Sew Hungry Hippie.  She’s got so many fantastic selections of vinyl and faux leather.

The Ashley Tote Bag

Ashley-Tote-YT

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.

Ashley Tote-4

The fabric makes me happy and the quilting just gives me all the feels.

Ashley Tote-6

Green and white polka dot?  I mean, c’mon!

Of course, I have a step by step tutorial for you.  You can find it below.  I have written down all of the dimensions for you.  You can get them in my shop HERE.

Urban Scrunchie Headband

Well hello there my Urban Scrunchie friends!  I am still at it.  I can’t quit making these really quick and easy headbands using my Urban Scrunchie Mini Template.

If you prefer the Free Printable Pdf & SVG pattern you can get it here. Just in time for Back to School, gym work outs or just when you want to look cute!  I will let you in on a secret… I cheated.  I took a shortcut and used premade headbands!  You can see the ones I used here.

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:

 

 

I see headbands in the girls’ stockings this year.

Are you ready for the step by step tutorial?  I thought you might be.

Grab and Go Wristlet – FREE PATTERN

IMG_3547

Hello!  Can you believe it’s almost JULY?  June has flown by!  I have been super busy.  I just got back from the Cricut Meet and Greet in Chicago where we celebrated the launch of the Infusible Inks with Michaels! (More to come on that later).  Today, I am excited to share with you my very own pattern/design which I call the Grab and Go Wristlet!

Wristlet LAN-1

This little cutie is the perfect size for the summer when you just want to take your key, phone and a few necessities without the added bulk of an oversized purse.

Wristlet LAN-1-2

This little cutie actually has quite a lot of room in it and yet, it’s still a clutch size.  I just love the fun colors.  Wristlet LAN-3

You can’t help but be happy when you see Pink Lemons and Palm Trees, right?

Wristlet LAN-4

I designed this bag so that it can easily be converted to a crossbody bag for when you need your hands free for shopping or chasing kids!  (I remember those days :), I actually miss them very much).

Are you ready for a tutorial:  I have a FREE SVG (perfect if you have a Cricut Maker), or you can choose the FREE PDF pattern and cut it by hand.  You can get them by clicking below:

GRAB & GO SVG PATTERN **                     GRAB & GO PDF PATTERN

** For whatever reason, when uploading the SVG to Cricut Design Space, Design Space is resizing it.  Resize the SVG to 23.5″ wide (Keep lock proportions on).  This will create a finished pouch that is approximately 9 x 7.

Here are the step by step video instructions:

 

 

Placemat Pouch Version 10! – The Tote

This is going to be a really quick post.  I started the Placemat Pouch Series over a year ago and the response has been overwhelming.  There are now 10 different placemat projects.

Today, I launched the newest member – Version 10 – The Tote.

Placemat 10

I am really happy with how this one turned out and I think the faux leather opens up a bunch of possiblities with the Placemat projects.  I’ve already got a few others lined up.

Clear Vinyl Bags! So Fun!!

vinyl-pouch.png

You guys!  I have been laying in bed at night dreaming of vinyl bags!  I am having so much fun working with this clear vinyl.  I have an entire series coming up with lots of fun ideas and ways to use it.

Clear Vinyl Bags

Today, we are going to start with this very basic simple pouch.  I think it is super cute and I can think of a million uses.

I used the Cricut to add a bit of fun personalization and I think it takes the cuteness factor over the top!
