Triangle Jelly Pouches

IMG_5641

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.

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.

Are you ready for the tutorial?

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!

Round Make Up Bag with The Cricut

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?

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!

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

Create a Pattern & Card Wallet with the Cricut Maker & HeatnBond

I am having so much fun with my Cricut Maker!  Everyday, it seems, I dream of things to make and patterns to create.

Card Wallet-4

Last night, I got home from work and immediately started working on designing a pattern for these cuties that the Cricut Maker could cut out for me.  It was super easy, and the fact that the Cricut Maker not only cut out my fabric and interfacing, but also drew my seam allowances, made making these super easy – even for a beginner sewist, like me!

Card Wallet-10

These are the perfect size for business cards or credit cards.  I love using small wallets like this for a quick run to the grocery or after school sport events.

Card Wallet-15

I added a keyring so that you could easily clip your car keys or even a lobster clasp could be added to clip it to a backpack or purse.

I used Heat N Bond Fusible Extra Firm interfacing to create the perfect firmness to these little gems.

The fun fabrics are from a Pioneer Woman Placemat (top left $3.47 from Walmart), Fabric Editions (top right and lower left – $0.97 from Walmart) and some fabric from my scraps bin from Riley Blake (lower right).

Wanna make one?  Guess what?  I’ve got a tutorial 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!

Card Wallet from a Placemat

We are making card wallets today and the best part about it is –   We are making them from a placemat!  These are oh so easy and the perfect project for the beginner sewists, like me!

I recently went to Creativation in Phoenix and needed something to carry my business cards to the show.  I bought a boring little magnetic metal pouch to take to the show, but I was thinking this morning that there must be a cuter alternative.

Which led me to my craftroom and my Pioneer Woman placemats.  I whipped up a couple of these in less than 30 minutes.  The only supplies you need are a placemat, ruler, magnetic closure, a piece of coordinating fabric and your sewing machine.

Ready to make one?  You guessed it!  I’ve got a video tutorial for you.  Please tag me on social media if you make one!
