Brinkley Double Zipper Pouch / Cross Body Bag

IMG_5800Thanks for stopping by!  I am so excited to share with you the Brinkley Double Zipper Pouch / Cross body Bag.  This is a fun and practical bag.  It features two zipper pockets

IMG_5792

as well as a surprise third pocket in the middle.  It’s super roomy.  I can easily fit my iphone XS Max inside the smaller pouch with plenty room to spare for keys, wallet, etc.

I made two different sizes.  The smaller size is approximately 6 x 8 and the larger is 8×10.

I love that you can easily switch between a clutch to a cross body bag by simply changing the detachable strap.

The measurements are as follows:

2 Outer Fabrics 8″ x 10″ (small size 6 x 8) .

2 Lining Fabrics 8 x 10 (small size 6 x 8)

2 Fusible Fleece cut to 7.5 x 9.5

1 Fabric for wristlet strap 3″ x 15″ (lengthen or shorten to your preference)

1 Fabric (or vinyl) 2 x 4″ for tab

1 D-ring / 1 Swivel Lobster Clasp

I will be making several of these for Christmas gifts.  Are you ready to make one (or three?).  Get your zippers, some cute fabric and your favorite beverage and let’s get making!!  Here is a step by step tutorial for you:

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.

IMG_5632

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:

IMG_5139 2

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:

IMG_5147 2.jpeg

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!

Ashley Tote-5

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.

Here’s the video tutorial:   

Wrigley Sliding Pouch

Wrigley-Sliding-Pouch

Hello!  Thanks for stopping by!  I am excited to share today’s tutorial with you.  It is the Wrigley Sliding Pouch!  I just love this project and I think it will be the perfect addition to your craft room.

IMG_5266.jpg

It features a fun sliding sleeve that collapses and reveals the perfect pen/tool holder for your desktop, but also conveniently expands and closes up so that you can easily take it with you.

It’s the perfect gift for teachers, students or any crafter.  Pens, Markers, Tools, or Sewing Notions fit perfectly inside.

I created a PDF and SVG pattern. You can use your Cricut Maker to cut the SVG, or simply print the PDF and cut your pattern by hand.   You can find them by clicking below:

Pocket Placemat

joann placemat-9-2

Well hello there!  I am happy you are here!  Over in my Craft Crazy Facebook Group. I had a group member ask if I would create a tutorial on this super cute pocket placemat!  She found this wonderful tutorial over on the Joann Fabric website and wanted to see a video tutorial.

joann placemat-1-2

I mean what is not to love about this cutie?  It’s so fun and I can think of a ton of ways to change it up, like this one:

A quick change of fabrics and embellishments and you’ve got a Halloween Placemat.

the Evie Scrunchie – FREE Pattern Included

IMG_4773

I am back with another Scrunchie tutorial!  Who would have thought that Scrunchies would be back in style!  I am seeing them everywhere and in lots of shapes and sizes.

IMG_4780

I created the EVIE Scrunchie with my grand-daughter in mind, obviously.  I think it is adorable.  I am a sucker for all things bows.

IMG_4778

The beauty of the Scrunchies is that you can mix and match the Urban Scrunchie with the Mini Scrunchie with the Evie Scrunchie.  They all work similarly and together.  I was inspired to make this set from the headband tutorial I showed you last week using the Urban Scrunchie Mini.   I just love the rainbow of color and Evie will have an accessory for every outfit.

I added the solid templates to the shop. You can click HERE the to purchase or just click on SHOP at the top of the page.  As always, I also have a FREE printable PDF and SVG for you as well.  You can find that HERE.

Double Zipper ID Pouch with Cricut

doublezipid-3.jpg

Hi there!  I am happy you are here.  It is a beautiful Sunday evening here in South Bend, IN and I just finished whipping up a few of these Double Zipper ID Pouches.

doublezipid-11

I used my Cricut Maker (you can use the Cricut Explore, too) to cut the Cricut Faux Leather, fabric and even the clear vinyl window.

doublezipid-10

I created this pattern with travel in mind, whether it’s a simple as a trip to the grocery or travel through an airport.  It’s got a secure pocket for your ID and a larger, middle pocket for cash, keys or whatever you may need.

doublezipid-9

You can use the handy side clip to add a wrist strap, or to hang on a bookbag, tote bag, keys, etc.

I think this is going to be another great stocking stuffer idea!!

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.
