Zipper Pouch with Cork Fabric

COrk Bag-1

Hello there and thanks for stopping by!  I was so happy when I stopped by my local quilt shop and found this beautiful cork fabric!  It’s filled with beautiful gold flecks and a dreamy warm natural color.  I knew I had to make a few zipper pouches with this lucky find!

I mean, how can you not want to make something fabulous?!?  This is a really easy pattern to follow and you can adjust it to any size you like by simply adjusting the beginning sizes.

I added these cool cork zipper tabs to the ends of the zipper for an extra special finishing touch.  Yes, I made the zipper pull as well.  I drew my logo and then digitized it.

The inside is fully lined and has a pocket.

Mini Tote Bag with/or without the Cricut

minitote-4

A while ago, I posted a miniature tote bag I made for someone for Christmas.  I have been asked over and over to post the directions for this mini tote.  Today, I made the tutorial and just to change it up a little I made 3 different sizes.

and used 3 different patterns

I wanted to show how versatile a simple basic tote bag pattern can be.  Simply change the size, add a pocket, add a keychain, a bow or some pompoms and it looks like a totally different project.

I used the Cricut Maker to cut my fabric, but you can absolutely cut it by hand.  I give you the step by step instructions as well as all of the measurements in the video tutorial below.

Which one is your favorite?

Chapstick Cozy!

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!

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

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.

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.

NEW – Cricut Bowl Koozies!

Hello there!  It’s been awhile.  I hope you enjoyed the holidays with friends and family.  I sure did!  We have been non-stop since Thanksgiving.  I took a little break in December so that I could enjoy some family time.

Today, however, I had to get back to Cricuting.  I have two new, fun patterns for you to try!

The Scallop and Round Bowl Koozie / Cozy (which do you say?)

They are made very much like my original bowl koozie, but the one on the left has a round edge and the one on the right has a scallop edge.

Here is a step by step tutorial for you and don’t forget to grab the free Design Space Files here:  SCALLOP KOOZIE and ROUND KOOZIE.  If you don’t have a Cricut Maker, but you have an Explore, go ahead and cut out the patterns in cardstock and then just use that at a pattern to hand cut the fabric.

 

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?

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!

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!
