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.

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!

bunny edgg-17

Good morning and welcome to another Cricut project.  Today, we are using our Cricut to cut felt to create these adorable Easter Egg Bunnies.  Aren’t they the cutest?

bunny edgg-19

I mean c’mon, what’s cuter than 3 little bunny bums?

bunny edgg-12

They are made from Dollar Tree Plastic Eggs.  I filled them with candy.  You can open and close them without disturbing the bunny, which means you can use them as part of your Easter Decor or for baskets year after year.

I created all of the patterns for the felt pieceings in Cricut Design Space.  You can find a link to the file in the video description.

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!

Personalized Gift Box with the Cricut EasyPress

woodenbox-3

Hi there and welcome back.  Today, I am sharing how I made this personalized wooden gift box.

woodenbox-7

You may recall last week, I made this personalized flask and matching etched 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.

woodenbox-4

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.

woodenbox-2

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.

Masculine Gift Set with the Cricut

flask set-1

Have I mentioned my son is getting married?  He is.  Be prepared for lots and lots of wedding projects in the near future.  This fun little set is how he is asking his friends to be groomsmen and best men.

flask set-9

I designed my template for the flasks and for the shot glasses right in Design Space.  I have a separate tutorial on etching the shot glasses, you can find it here.

flask set-7

In this tutorial we are focusing on the flask and the box.  I think the box takes it from ordinary to extraordinary.  I have a another tutorial coming soon in which we will finish the box to take it to the next level.

I can’t wait to show you how this came together.  I’ve got a step by step tutorial so you can make a gift set for your next anniversary, wedding, birthday, or even Valentines!

Toiletry Travel Kit with Cricut

I am excited to say I am going on a “girls’ trip” soon!  I thought it was time to add a little cuteness factor to my travel bag.  I used Cricut Premium Vinyl and my Cricut Maker to make this fun little bag.

You can absolutely use the Cricut Explore to make this as well.  I started with a blank toiletry kit like this one and used my Design Space File.   This is a great beginner project for every Cricut user.

I will walk you through every step of the way in the detailed, step-by-step tutorial below.

NEW – Cricut Bowl Koozies!

Hello there!  It’s been awhile.  I hope you enjoyed the holidays with friends and family.  I sure did!  We have been non-stop since Thanksgiving.  I took a little break in December so that I could enjoy some family time.

Today, however, I had to get back to Cricuting.  I have two new, fun patterns for you to try!

The Scallop and Round Bowl Koozie / Cozy (which do you say?)

rounded-koozie-1

They are made very much like my original bowl koozie, but the one on the left has a round edge and the one on the right has a scallop edge.

Here is a step by step tutorial for you and don’t forget to grab the free Design Space Files here:  SCALLOP KOOZIE and ROUND KOOZIE.  If you don’t have a Cricut Maker, but you have an Explore, go ahead and cut out the patterns in cardstock and then just use that at a pattern to hand cut the fabric.

 

Round Make Up Bag with The Cricut

DSC_0002

Hello and thanks for stopping by!  Today, I have a new make up pouch tutorial for you.  We have all seen this style of make up bag, but did you know how EASY they are to make on your own?

DSC_0005

I even added a vinyl lining which makes it easy to wipe up any spills or powders that can get inside a make up pouch.  It’s not just me that is messy, right?

DSC_0011

Or leave the vinyl out, like the one above and use it for your jewelry when traveling or your child’s legos… there’s never a shortage of uses for a pouch!

DSC_0003

If you don’t have a Maker, yet, never fear because I have a work around for you.  I bet you have a dinner plate and that will work just fine, too!

DSC_0006

You can whip these up in time for Christmas gift giving!  They take very little supplies and picking the fabrics is half the fun!
