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.

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.

You can find the Step By Step Tutorial Here:

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!

Find out everything you need to know to create your own in my YouTube tutorial here:

Canvas & Faux Leather Tote Bag

canvas leather tote bag-1

Many of you have messaged me and asked for projects that utilize faux leather.  Today, I give you the leather/canvas drop cloth tote bag.

canvas leather tote bag-5

Yes, we are using more of that canvas drop cloth that we used in Pillow Covers, the Shabby Fabric  Basket , and the Canvas Zipper Pouch.  We are getting a lot of mileage out of a simple paint drop cloth.

Tissue Pouch-2

I made both versions of this bag with Cricut Designer Fabric.  They have an amazing bundle right now that will really add to your fabric stash.  Both of the totes above were made from the fabric bundle.  They are currently phasing out fabric, so once this bundle is gone, it’s gone for good.  It’s a $129.90 value, on sale for only $39.99.  Psst… if you’re a Cricut Access Member you’ll save 10% off that price and use my code MAKERS10 and you will save ANOTHER 10%.  That is a whole lot of fabric at a very affordable price.

Tissue Pouch-3

This black and metallic rose gold is really striking in person.  Even if you don’t use a Cricut, this fabric is a great deal.  I didn’t use the Cricut for this project, but I still used the fabric.

Are you ready to make your own canvas and leather tote bag?  I’ve got you covered with a video that includes step by step instructions!

Canvas Lined Zipper Pouch

IMG_2205

Hey there!  I wanted to pop on here really quickly and share with you a fast and easy project using more of the paint drop cloth that I used in the previous RAE DUNN INSPIRED PILLOW COVER Tutorial and also in the SHABBY FABRIC BASKET Tutorial. (Click to visit those block posts).

This $4 drop cloth is providing me with fabric for tons of projects!  This zip pouch is perfect for personalization (think EasyPress Iron On).

If you’re a Cricut user I even have a Design Space pattern for you.  You can get that HERE.

CRICUT DESIGN SPACE FILE

If you’re not a Cricut user, don’t worry, I cut this project by hand in the video and you can, too!

Watch the video and check out the fun lining and pop of color on the inside!

Shabby Fabric Basket

IMG_1950

I am so happy about this Shabby Fabric Basket.  This project came together so quickly and so easily and even better, so inexpensively!

IMG_1952

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.

IMG_1931 2

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.

Project Bag – Free Pattern & Tutorial

Rae Dunn Pillow-1

Well hello there! Thanks for stopping by!  Today, I’m going to show you how to make this really fun Project Bag.  You can customize this to almost any size.  It’s a really easy sew.

Rae Dunn Pillow-6

I love that this bag cinches closed, but also opens up wide, and stands on its own so you can carry your project with you safely and work right out of the bag!

Rae Dunn Pillow-4

The boxy bottom gives it balance and a roomy interior.  I love working with cork fabric like this amazing pink cork!  Swoon!

Rae Dunn Pillow-3

These gorgeous Windham Fabric are to die for!

I’ve got a Cricut Design Space File for you or you can cut this by hand.  It’s all included in the video on my Youtube Channel.
