Urban Scrunchie Headband

Well hello there my Urban Scrunchie friends!  I am still at it.  I can’t quit making these really quick and easy headbands using my Urban Scrunchie Mini Template.

Just in time for Back to School, gym work outs or just when you want to look cute!  I will let you in on a secret… I cheated.  I took a shortcut and used premade headbands!  You can see the ones I used here.

I mean who doesn’t love to put on a bright, happy headband and make a statement.  You can mix and match the headband bows by simply untying and putting it on a different headband.  I cannot wait to see Evie sporting one, but since my cute model isn’t here, you’ll have to settle for me :).  Sorry about that, but I wanted you to see just how fun they are.

I just LOVE them!  They make me happy just looking at them.

I used the same Mini Template that I used for the Mini Urban Scrunchies.  You can find the Original Urban Scrunchie Post here.  I love the fact that you get two projects from the same template.  Keep in mind, the Original Template was much larger and longer.  I used the MIni here.

I see headbands in the girls’ stockings this year.

Are you ready for the step by step tutorial?  I thought you might be.

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!

Clear Vinyl Bags! So Fun!!

You guys!  I have been laying in bed at night dreaming of vinyl bags!  I am having so much fun working with this clear vinyl.  I have an entire series coming up with lots of fun ideas and ways to use it.

Clear Vinyl Bags

Today, we are going to start with this very basic simple pouch.  I think it is super cute and I can think of a million uses.

I used the Cricut to add a bit of fun personalization and I think it takes the cuteness factor over the top!

Find out everything you need to know to create your own in my YouTube tutorial here:

Canvas & Faux Leather Tote Bag

canvas leather tote bag-1

Many of you have messaged me and asked for projects that utilize faux leather.  Today, I give you the leather/canvas drop cloth tote bag.

canvas leather tote bag-5

Yes, we are using more of that canvas drop cloth that we used in Pillow Covers, the Shabby Fabric  Basket , and the Canvas Zipper Pouch.  We are getting a lot of mileage out of a simple paint drop cloth.

Tissue Pouch-2

I made both versions of this bag with Cricut Designer Fabric.  They have an amazing bundle right now that will really add to your fabric stash.  Both of the totes above were made from the fabric bundle.  They are currently phasing out fabric, so once this bundle is gone, it’s gone for good.  It’s a $129.90 value, on sale for only $39.99.  Psst… if you’re a Cricut Access Member you’ll save 10% off that price and use my code MAKERS10 and you will save ANOTHER 10%.  That is a whole lot of fabric at a very affordable price.

Tissue Pouch-3

This black and metallic rose gold is really striking in person.  Even if you don’t use a Cricut, this fabric is a great deal.  I didn’t use the Cricut for this project, but I still used the fabric.

Are you ready to make your own canvas and leather tote bag?  I’ve got you covered with a video that includes step by step instructions!

Canvas Lined Zipper Pouch

Hey there!  I wanted to pop on here really quickly and share with you a fast and easy project using more of the paint drop cloth that I used in the previous RAE DUNN INSPIRED PILLOW COVER Tutorial and also in the SHABBY FABRIC BASKET Tutorial. (Click to visit those block posts).

This $4 drop cloth is providing me with fabric for tons of projects!  This zip pouch is perfect for personalization (think EasyPress Iron On).

If you’re a Cricut user I even have a Design Space pattern for you.  You can get that HERE.

If you’re not a Cricut user, don’t worry, I cut this project by hand in the video and you can, too!

Watch the video and check out the fun lining and pop of color on the inside!

Shabby Fabric Basket

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.

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?

Change the fabric and you’ve got an Easter Basket, a Mother’s Day Basket, a gift basket, and more.

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

How to make a Jumbo Tote Bag

Jumbo Tote Bag-1Hello and thanks for stopping by!  Today, I am excited to bring you this super handy “How to Make a Jumbo Tote Bag “tutorial.

Jumbo Tote Bag-4

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.

Jumbo Tote Bag-8

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.
