Alright guys! I’m back with another clear vinyl pouch! This is a really fun project and really easy! There are so many possibilities using this technique, your Cricut and a little bit of vinyl. You can create a shaped pouch for virtually any shape!
The kids are sure to love them! Watch the step by step tutorial over on my youtube channel!
Hello and thanks for stopping by! Today, I am excited to bring you this super handy “How to Make a Jumbo Tote Bag “tutorial.
My daughter asked me to make something for the grandkids that they could take their “stuff” to day care in. It needed to be large enough to hold their nap blanket and pillow, an extra set of cloths and all of the other essentials, but it also needed to be soft a flexible enough they could fold it up and store it in their cube at daycare.
I came up with this pattern. I used outdoor fabric for durability and fusible fleece to give them a bit of structure, but still soft and foldable.
I am in love with how they turned out.
By simply adjusting the size of the fabrics, you can make a tote for almost any occasion using this design. It’s the perfect beginner sewing friendly project.
Ready to make one? Here’s your step by step tutorial:
If you don’t have a Cricut yet… (you seriously need one), but you can create this by hand cutting the following rectangles and scoring each every 1/2″ down the length of each rectangle, then follow the tutorial.
You’ll need 2 strips each:
11.5 x 3″
11.5 x 2.75″
11.5 x 2.5″
11.5 x 2.25″
11.5 x 2″
11.5 x 1.75″
11.5 x 1.5″
11.5 x 1.25″
11.5 x 1″
11.5 x .75″
11.5 x .5″
OK, let’s do this! Here’s a step by step tutorial:
Thanks for stopping by. Today I am showing you how to create a decorative towel hanger with your Cricut Maker! Don’t have a Cricut Maker – don’t worry, I’ve got instructions for you, too.
I remember growing up that my mother and grandmother often had towels hanging from the front of the stove. They were attached with some of grandmother’s handy dandy killer crochet skills. Apparently, a skill that I did not inherit! 🙂 .
I wanted to create a towel hanger to keep a certain someone (sorry, Doug) from grabbing my pretty decorative towels and wiping up spilled milk on the counter. Just sayin… PAPER TOWELS! I digress.
I decided to create a pattern in Cricut Design Space (you can grab it here) and create my very own modern version of Grandmother’s Crochet’d towel holder.
I think this is the perfect gift for most every home. It would be great fun to make one for each season/holiday and gift them as a set.
I used the Cricut EasyPress to create this Rae Dunn Inspired Flannel towel holder. The Easypress also helped me create holiday towels for Christmas like this one
and this one. Excuse Wrigley… he thinks hes a prop.
I just love the fact that you can get two towel holders from 1 towel.
I added a little pom pom trim to this one! A girl has to have pom poms in her life, right?
I bet you can guess that I have a step by step tutorial for you and you can help yourself to the pattern above.

Who needs a thread catcher? Apparently, I need several because I can’t stop making them! These little guys are fun to make and they look much harder than they actually are.
They just make me happy! I love combining print fabrics and this project is perfect for it! I used THIS Cricut Fabric on this cutie (psst… it’s on sale now! Use my code LORRIE and get another 10% and Free Shipping)! It’s so pretty!
I think these are going to be Holiday Gifts for the crafters in my family. I can make one to match each of their home decor crafty spaces. They are so handy to throw in those little paper scraps, threads and little bits and they look so much better than a trash can! They would be perfect to take to a crop.
I’ve got an SVG so that you can cut this out with your Cricut Maker. You can download it HERE. If you don’t have an Cricut, yet, you NEED one, but I’ve got all of the instructions in the video so you can cut this by hand.
Here’s a step by step video tutorial so you can get started making these today!
Hello! I cannot believe it’s almost Fall and I’m already beginning to think about Halloween, Hoodies, Crisp evenings and all that goes with the changing of the seasons! This summer has been so busy with family visits, friends, trips and just plan ole day to day stuff, that I haven’t been able to keep my projects updated on the blog. The next few posts will be some really quick and easy projects featuring none other than the Cricut!
This fun project was made using the Cricut Premium Vinyl! It’s so amazing! It’s been redesigned to not only weed easier, lay flatter, but it also is “Permanent”. This makes it perfect for customizing these fun flasks that I purchased at Walgreens (yes, I said Walgreens).
Hello! Thanks for stopping by! Today, I have another quick and easy gift idea for you. How about a set of Rae Dunn Inspired Jewelry Dishes?
Pretty cute, don’t you think? They are amazingly easy and very inexpensive. I made this set for under $8.
I tried a set in black as well for a more authentic “Rae Dunn” look. I think they would make fantastic bridesmaid gifts, bridal shower gifts, stocking stuffers, birthday gifts or even a just because gift.
You could add a name, a monogram, a favorite sports team logo, a short poem, or any other image you can cut out in vinyl. Every girl (and guy) needs a place to put their bling, small personal items and whatnots. I especially like the one with the wedding date… no more forgetting the anniversary, right?! How about adding a pair of earings and using the bowl as the gift bag.. just add a little ribbon and WOWZA, you just stepped it up a notch.
In the video I show you a really easy way to add this gold trim around the bowl as well as a few polka dots. Polka dots make everything better!
My friend, Teri, and I recorded this live in our Urban Makers Facebook Group, you’ll here her in the video. I uploaded it to youtube afterward, so it’s no longer live, but you still get to join in the fun!
It’s all set up for you in Design Space, all you need to do is cut it out and the next thing you know, you’ll have this:
Darling little zipper pouches. Perfect to hold your phone, goodies, makeup or whatever little doo-dads you’re trying to keep track of.
They are just the sweetest! I used the Anna Griffin Fabric we got in our goodie bags at the Cricut Mountain MakeaThon, as well as this Garden Girl fabric from Riley Blake. Psst… use code LORRIE and save 10% and get Free Shipping. This project is really fun, and not nearly as intimidating as it may look. Don’t be afraid of the zipper! They are easy!
I see a few Christmas Gifts being made from these fun fabrics! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw all the new collections available at Cricut. (Again.. use my code LORRIE and save 10% and get Free Shipping).
I’ve created a step by step tutorial for you. Let’s make this together!
The new Cricut EasyPress 2 (available for purchase this Fall) was released at the Cricut Makeathon a couple of weeks ago! We were all so excited about the new features! Besides the new color (how about that amazing flamingo pink/orange), the new EasyPress 2 heats up to 400 degrees, heats up faster (than the prevous model), has a new improved base plate and now has a USB port for future firmware updates. Already have the Original model? No worries! it still does everything it did before and is still an amazing machine (available on Amazon for $109), however, the new EasyPress 2 now comes in 3 sizes: 6 x 7 (great for onsies and hats), the original 9 x 9 and the big daddy of the bunch 10 x 12 (great for adult tshirting. Yes, Tshirting is a word, a verb rather… the act of making tshirts.
OK… so what is today’s project? Why it’s a super, duper Canvas Wall Decor “Never Stop Making” design.
Sort of fun, right? I record the how to video live on my Facebook Page (yes, live is not my thing.. and I meant to do this in my Cricut EasyPress Group, but instead did it on my personal page… Ugh….), but I saved it, edited out some of the chatty stuff and uploaded it to my youtube. Here you go!
