Camping, anyone?

Happy Saturday!  I wanted to share another idea using my latest pouch tutorial (Version 4).  I created this camping bag.  I thought it would be really fun to stuff with things like a flashlight, bug spray, sunscreen, wet wipes, etc..  I have a lot of friends who enjoy camping and this will make a perfect gift.   They can hang it right in their campsite so everyone has all of the necessities right at their fingertips!  Cute, right?!!

If you missed my tutorial, you can find it here.

Happy Camping!

It’s Placemat Pouch VERSION 4!

I cannot believe how much of a response I’ve gotten to the Placemat Pouches! You guys are so amazing!  I had to come up with another version for you!  I give you.. Version 4!

Placemat V4-1

Isn’t she cute!!!

I can see all kinds of uses for this little cutie patootie!  On the go diaper bag, perhaps?  Or a cute little purse?  What about a grab and go beach pouch?  It’s a great size and made from another quilted placemat, so the extra padding makes it ideal for all kinds of “Stuff” you need to carry around.

DIY Placemat (for Zipper Pouches)

Hello!  I’m so happy you are here!

I have a really easy project for you.  Due to the overwhelming response I’ve had to the

Placemat-1

Placemat pouch tutorials, I thought you might enjoy a DIY placemat, so that you can use your own beautiful fabrics.

Placemat-3

This is a really easy, basic placemat.  I will show you how to add your own “cheater binding” so that you can add the pop of color around the zipper (red polka dot in the photo above).

I do recommend one change from the video.  This placemat is not quilted due to the way it is made.  Therefore, I would highly recommend adding Heat N Bond Craft Interfacing to the lining.  In the tutorial I show you how to add the fusible fleece to the outer fabric.  I recommend using both the fusible fleece on the outer and the interfacing on the lining.  This will provide a stiffer, crisper pouch.

Placemat-5

I also linked a video to bind the placemat around all four sides in case you really want to use this as a binded placemat.  You can absolutely leave it with no binding as well.  A lot of different options for a lot of different looks.

Are you ready for the tutorial?

Placemat Pouch Version 3

Hello and welcome!  Today I have ANOTHER placemat project for you.  These placemat projects have had an enormous following and I could not be happier about it.  They are so quick and easy to put together and the hard part (the quilting) is already done for you!

Placemat Bag Part 2-2

Today, we are making this upright version.  This could be perfect for a make up bag, a lunch bag, an “essentials” travel bag or even just a cute tote or pouch for storage.

Placemat Bag Part 2-3

The boxy shape and raised zipper make it extra roomy and easy to get in.

Placemat Bag Part 2-3-2

I lined this one with Thermoweb Iron On Vinyl which gives the inside a wipeable, waterproof lining.  The handle uses Thermoweb Extra Firm Fusible Interfacing to give it extra sturdiness and durability. IMPORTANT NOTE: handle interfacing should be cut to 2″ x 14″, not 4″ x 14″ as stated in video. All of the correct measurements are in the video description.

Placemat Bag Part 2-1-2

I think these are a fun edition to the Placemat Zipper Pouch (Version 1), the placemat wallet, the placemat basket and the placemat square pouch (Pictured below).

Ready for the tutorial (you knew I had one ready for you!):

Placemat Zipper Pouch

Pioneer WOman Pouches-1

This, by far… has been one my most popular video tutorials and, probably one of the easiest!

This is a Box Zipper Pouch made from a Pioneer Woman Placemat from Walmart!  Not even joking!

Pioneer WOman Pouches-5

These are really practical.  They are the perfect size for cosmetics, traveling toiletries and even craft projects.

The best part… the quilting is already done for you.  All you need to do is add a zipper and few stitches and voila… you’ve got a gift in less than 15 minutes.

Want to make one?  Guess what?  I’ve got a video tutorial for you!  Here you go!
