How to Sublimate a Glass Cutting Board

Are you looking for gift ideas for the holidays? I’ve got one that I hope you’re going to love!

I am back with another Sublimation tutorial. Today, we are making glass cutting boards. I found these to be so fun. I can think of a ton of ways to utilize this fun project. How about putting your favorite team logo and then using it as a cheese/serving tray at your next football gathering? Photos, of course, make great gifts for grandparents as well as moms and dads. Another fun idea would be to add your favorite family recipe and then give them to various family members. You could also add a favorite quote, holiday meme, favorite characters, movie scenes, inspirational quotes and the list goes on and on. However you choose to use them, I am sure they will be greatly appreciated.

I used my Sawgrass SG500 sublimation printer and my 15 x 15 heat press with the pretreated glass cutting boards that are perfect for sublimation (hint: use code 9PSR5 to save 15% on the cutting boards).

Animal Print Key Chains… I mean c’mon :)

I was so happy when Parker on the Porch gave me the OK to make a video featuring her fun animal print key chains. I mean, Leopard is the signature pattern of this crazy 2020 year.

Leopard is everywhere.

They are each made on the embroidery machine. I used my Ricoma EM1010 Multi-Needle Machine (link saves you $100), but you can make them on a single-needle machine as well.

I sent this one to my leopard-loving friend, Teri. She loved leopard before leopard was on every display at the mall.

I kept the Zebra keychain, but I love the tiger print, too! Don’t you think they would make the perfect stocking stuffer?

How to Embroider a Beanie

Now this is fun!!

Oh the weather outside is frightful… and my beanie is so delightful. Since we’ve no place to go, let us SEW, let us SEW, let us SEW!

It is official, the summer season has left northern Indiana and the Fall is on it’s way out as well. Winter is around the corner, which means lots of hats, gloves and warmer clothes in my neck of the woods.

Today, I’m going to show you how to create a very easy Embroidered Beanie. I picked up several of these beanies as soon as I received my embroidery machine, however, for some reason I was afraid to give them a try. They are so simple to add embroidery and customize. I used my 8 in 1 Hoop and my Ricoma multi-needle machine (save $100 with this link) to add my logo to this beanie in a matter of minutes!

How to Sublimate a Slap Wrap for a Can/Bottle Koozie

Are you looking for stocking stuffer ideas? I’ve got a fun one for you!

This is such a fun and unusual koozie. When my children were little they had bracelets that worked the same way that slap wrap can koozies work the same way.

Bowl Koozie with Free PDF Pattern

Bowl Koozie with PDF

I am revisiting an older project.  The bowl koozie.

The original video I made with this fun pattern was focused around the Cricut.  You can see it here.

Screen Shot 2020-05-05 at 2.13.43 PM

Cricut added my original design to Cricut Design Space.  If you have a Cricut you can easily cut out the shapes.  The Design Space File is available by clicking here.

This time I wanted to make the Bowl Koozie easy for those who don’t have a Cricut.  I have created a FREE PDF Bowl Koozie Pattern so that anyone can make this fun, beginner friendly sewing gift.

If you are new to my channel, or new to sewing, this project is the perfect for you!  Even seasoned sewists, love making koozies.  I’ve got a step by step tutorial for you to make it super easy to get started.

The bowl koozies make wonderful gifts, craft fair items and they are just great to have around for everyday household use.

If you’d like to start creating and follow along with me in a video tutorial, click below.  I’d love to see your Koozies.  Don’t forget to join my Facebook Group and post your photos!

Drawstring Tote Bag

IMG_8914

I have been wanting to create this drawstring tote bag tutorial for awhile now, but I got sidetracked with mask making.  I thought it would be a fun time to create this quick and rather easy tote bag.

IMG_8912

I used this great PUL fabric on the inside that makes it water resistant and easily wipeable, which means, it could easily double as a make up bag, lunch tote or use it for just about anything you’d use a tote bag for.  The finished size measures about 7 x 6 x 10″.

IMG_8909

I have a step by step tutorial linked below.   If you have a Cricut Maker  you can cut all of the pieces with your Maker.  No Maker, no worries.  I have a PDF with the dimensions here, you can easily handcut each piece.

So, are you ready to make a couple of cute drawstring totes?  I bet you can’t make just one!  I know, I couldn’t!  If you make one, please post on social media and tag me.  You can find all of my links in the video description.  I love to see what you are making!

How to Make Fabric Rope

DSC_0034

This is another really easy, but fun project.  I love to make fabric twine/rope while watching tv.  I am not a person who can just sit idle, I need my hands to be doing something.

DSC_0047

Last night, while watching a movie, my daughter in law and I made these balls of twine.  They turned out so beautiful.

DSC_0043-2

Today, I took her ball of twine and made it into this cool trivet.  The smaller one is a coaster.

DSC_0045-2

It is truly a one of a kind rope and I kinda love it!  The best part?  It’s made with nothing more than fabric from my scrap bin!  What a wonderful way to recycle your scraps.

DSC_0045

I plan to keep going with my ball of twine and hope to make a rug out of it.  They are fully washable (I know that’s what you were thinking when I said rug!).

So, do you want to learn how to make some scrap busting fabric rope?  I have a step by step tutorial.  I would love it if you make some if you would tag me on my social media channels and Facebook Groups. You can find me by clicking HERE.

Here’s the tutorial:

Brinkley Double Zipper Pouch / Cross Body Bag

IMG_5800Thanks for stopping by!  I am so excited to share with you the Brinkley Double Zipper Pouch / Cross body Bag.  This is a fun and practical bag.  It features two zipper pockets

IMG_5792

as well as a surprise third pocket in the middle.  It’s super roomy.  I can easily fit my iphone XS Max inside the smaller pouch with plenty room to spare for keys, wallet, etc.

IMG_5807

I made two different sizes.  The smaller size is approximately 6 x 8 and the larger is 8×10.

IMG_5821

I love that you can easily switch between a clutch to a cross body bag by simply changing the detachable strap.

The measurements are as follows:

2 Outer Fabrics 8″ x 10″ (small size 6 x 8) .

2 Lining Fabrics 8 x 10 (small size 6 x 8)

2 Fusible Fleece cut to 7.5 x 9.5

1 Fabric for wristlet strap 3″ x 15″ (lengthen or shorten to your preference)

1 Fabric (or vinyl) 2 x 4″ for tab

1 D-ring / 1 Swivel Lobster Clasp

I will be making several of these for Christmas gifts.  Are you ready to make one (or three?).  Get your zippers, some cute fabric and your favorite beverage and let’s get making!!  Here is a step by step tutorial for you:

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.

IMG_5632

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.

IMG_5633

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.
