Parkside Tote – Collaboration with OklaRoots

parkside1

I have been so excited to release the Parkside Tote Bag.  OklaRoots and I collaborated on this super fun, super practical tote bag.

IMG_6053

We are both bag makers.  She is also a quilter – I want to be a quilter.  Neither of us have the time to commit to a full size quilt everytime we want to quilt, so we decided to combine our two loves and voila… the Parkside Tote was built.

Jess over at OklaRoots designed the quilt block just for you.  It is perfectly sized and pieced together to fit within the construction of this tote.  You can visit her blog and Youtube to find out how to make the quilt portion of the bag, pick up the PDF templates and she’s even got SVGs for all of you digital die cutting makers.

There is so much room inside of this bag.

I bet you can’t just make one!!!IMG_4937.jpg

So, grab some fabric, vinyl, cork or whatever your preference is, and let’s get started!

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.

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.

Joann Fabrics did an amazing job of writing out the tutorial, but if you’d like to see a video, step by step tutorial click below:

Triangle Pouch

Triangle Pouch-1Triangle Pouches are super fun to make and they look harder than they really are.  It’s really just a few straight seams and you’re done.

Triangle Pouch-1-2

I looked around at Pinterest and Youtube and couldn’t find any tutorials showing how to fully enclose all the of the seams in the lining.  I really love the simplisity of the patterns I saw on Pinterest, but I didn’t love seeing the raw edged seams on the lining.  I wanted the inside to be as pretty as the outside.

Triangle Pouch-2

So, I created my own tutorial with a completely finished linining.  It’s really not hard at all and only adds 2 extra steps.

Triangle Pouch-3

They turned out great and I can’t wait to give a few to some friends.  They are also the perfect STOCKING STUFFER size!  You could add a chapstick, handsanitzer or something fun and stuff them into the stocking or even hang them from the stocking.  So many ideas.

Are you ready for the tutorial and to find out how I enclosed all of the seams?  Here you go!

Rae Dunn Inspired Coffee Mug/Planter

Hey everyone, it’s another DOLLAR TREE TUESDAY WITH CRICUT.  Today, I have this really simple set of mugs which were made with white coffee cups from the Dollar Tree and Cricut Premium Permanent Vinyl.  I planted a small rose bush in one and I think it’s going to make a really cute Mother’s Day presentation for a special mom that I know!

Here’s a quick video:

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?

As always, I’ve got a step by step tutorial for you.  You can find it below.

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.

Chapstick Cozy!

chapstick Cozy-1

It’s a chapstick cozy!  A fun, little pocket for your chapstick to live.  I wanted to create a cozy with a snap that would keep the chapstick in place, and more importantly, the lid!

chapstick Cozy-18

There is nothing worse than reaching in your purse, backpack or car console and finding your lidless chapstick!  EWWWW!

chapstick Cozy-14

Enter the chapstick cozy!  While we are at it, why not add a hook so that we can easily hang this on our keyring, bag or wherever you might need chapstick.

chapstick Cozy-5

The fabrics absolutely make these not only functional, but fashionable!  All you need to create your own is a scrap of fabric cut to 5 x 9″, a matching piece of light interfacing, a lobster clasp and the Kam Snap Fastner Kit.   (I have a Cricut cut file for you if you’d like to let the Maker cut it out, you can get it here).

As far as assembly, you’re in luck because I’ve got a step by step video tutorial for you.

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!
