Fall Blog Hop from Lily Patch Quilts

 Hello! It's been a long time. Work has kept me super busy so there's not much time to quilt but I wanted to join Carla's blog hop to help me get back into sewing for fun even if it's smaller projects than larger quilts that I normally would like to sew. 

Since this is a Fall blog hop, I pulled out fabrics from my stash to make a couple of large zipper pouches. These are so much fun to make and can be used to organize your essentials or use as a large clutch. I tried ...

Adding Bosal In-R-Form to the Date Night Clutch from Quilt Social

Hello and Happy Friday! All week, I’ve been demonstrating how to make The Library Tote and Date Night Clutch using BOSAL In-R-Form Double Sided Fusible Stabilizer.

Now it’s time to make the faced zipper I promised. What’s really nice about this zipper is it’s neat and tidy and hides a pocket where all the private stuff needed in a bag can be hidden. I find a zippered pocket always handy as it is a secure place to put things so they cannot slip out of ...

Making a Date Night Clutch using Bosal In-R-Form from Quilt Social

Happy Wednesday! Yesterday I finished off making the library tote. Today and over the next few days, I’ll discuss how to make a smaller clutch bag with the Bosal In-R-Form stabilizer. This compact Date Night Clutch bag looks like it has been purchased in a store all because the Bosal In-R-Form gives such polished, structured results.

I’ll also share how to make a zipper facing so that the zipper is embedded in the lining (looks oh so gorgeous) with a hidden pocket and how to make removable straps with D rings and swivel hook toggles. This time I ...

Bosal In-R-Form adds great structure to quilted bags from Quilt Social

This week I’m talking all about Bosal In-R-Form, a fantastic foam product to stabilize sewing and allow sewists to have very professional structured results. I have used it many times with many projects including bags, backpacks, quilt as you go placemats, baskets, bowls, lunch bags and more.
