I made Esme a drawstring backpack using the tutorial from The Purl Bee. Using Heat n’ Bond, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the letter “E” and ironed it onto the bag.
Then I made a Peppa Pig card for her with my Silhouette. Initially I was gonna use the print & cut feature but my printer was busted so i had to cut everything out. It was such a pain to glue all the pieces on!
So I combined 2 tutorials, the straps and the lining of Sewplicity’s Small Hip Bag and Eclectic Elements by Tim Holtz for Coats – Double Zipper Device Sleeve.
I’m very happy to finally make something for myself to use :)
Last night’s Paint Nite event.
I found this awesome little pouch on Pinterest and wanted to make one too! Although in retrospect, I should’ve added straps to make it more like a purse. I think I’ll also change the way the lining is done – I hate hand sewing!
I made a little collapsible tray for my husband to put on his desk to hold his stuff (like keys, lighters, etc.) and one for myself. The corners have velcro so that you can flatten it and take it with you when you travel. Seems very handy to bring to hotels. I used the tutorial from here, but have since found an easier one. The rounded corners were a pain in the butt, so next time I think I’ll just try the tutorial from Noodle Head.
There’s a ton of tutorials on how to make fabric baskets out there but I finally found one with the formula so you can customize your basket sizes. Cut rectangles with the following dimensions out of the outer fabric, lining and interfacing using the following formula:
depth + 2 x the height + seam allowance (0.5″)
depth + width + seam allowance (0.5″)
When you box the corners:
depth = the base of the triangle.
I made a ton of these this weekend using all the fabric that my cousin gave me. I added handles on some of the larger ones and made smaller rectangular ones for my desk.
After seeing the bandanna I stenciled last week, my other friends wanted a custom designed Flosstradamus logo too. One friend loves Naruto, so I took the sharingan eye image and added the Flosstradamus logo to the middle. For my other friend who loves working out, I made a protein powder bottle with the logo. They are totally ready for their EDM festival next weekend.
