{Tutorial} Dollar Tree Scarf Tote Bag from Michelle's Romantic Tangle

Dollar Tree has some of  the cutest scarves,  but I don't wear scarves so I couldn't quite justify buying one.  I did wind up with a couple...but I couldn't come up with a decent excuse for the purchase. Not until I saw my daughter's new camera strap and realized that this scarf could be a pretty strap. 

Oregon's bag ban has been spreading from town to town for the past few years and I can never keep track of which place has which rules. What I do know is that between grocery shopping for ...

Fishy Sew Together bag finished from My Sewing Room

Although the color is more "true" in the photo below, you can see that the Fishy Sew Together bag is finished.  I just love the sparkly rhinestone fish charm that I've hung on the side. 

I'm not really a fan of making bags because of the heavy layers to sew through - and zippers!!  But I do love making this little bag with its 3 inside zippered pockets, and the ability to open it up almost flat.  That makes it perfect for sewing supplies.  I have one that just gets used for counted cross stitch projects.  And I have ...

Quilt As You Go Zipper Pouch Tutorial from Patchwork Posse

Learn the quilt as you go method while sewing up a zipper pouch. Super cute and useful for packing around a sewing project, snacks or whatever.

A Zipper pouch comes in so handy…especially during the summer time.  I find myself in the car a lot. Having this little pouch around, I can stuff it with a sewing project, a snack, or whatever.  A quick grab and go pouch.

 Marilyn was also teaching a bag class at the Attic Window Quilt Shop this past week.  Check out that beautiful bag.  Above she is showing student, Anna (right) special techniques for making this bag.  I previously posted about the bag here.  What a beautiful bag it is too.
Nancy took the class too.  Above she quilts the layers of the bag.
This is another bag for an upcoming class that Marilyn will teach.  This one looks a little easier.
She made it using this Hoffman Star pack.  Call the shop to see when it is being held and to register ...

Getting stuff for free or almost from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Like all of you (well most of you), I own a lot of quilting stuff. I'd like to say that my stuff is all organized and labeled and I could dig out pretty much anything you ask for. For the most part, that's true, but there's a lot of stuff.

I've been quilting in Studio B, the last couple of days and while the machine runs, I've been poking around in some of the bags. Oh boy - there's a lot of stuff.

I came up with an idea of what to do with some ...

Have you seen this Mary Poppins bag?  Marilyn will be teaching you how to make it at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  However, this Friday's class is full, so if you are interested in making this bag with her, call the shop and get your name on the list for another class.  This class is very popular so I'm sure if enough people are interested Marilyn will teach another class.
Check out the pockets on the inside of the bag.
This is another picture of the outside of the bag.  I love how the zippers open and am ...

Bag Sewing - Patterns in Kits from Creatin' in the Sticks

Do you like to stitch your own bags?

(photos - Bluprint)
Until last year, I really hadn't made a lot of large bags.
Then Craftsy (now Bluprint) approached me about designing a large market bag
I became a little obsessed with making them.

The larger the better if you ask me.

And this one is big.

It’s made with just one package of 10” squares!

I'm just tickled to share that you can
now pick up your own large Market Tote kit over at Bluprint featuring my pattern.

You can choose from 2 color combinations too!

This and That from Grandma's Red Needle

Hello everyone! 
 I hope you all had a nice Easter. No public holidays here, just normal days for us. 

How are you doing and what have you been up to recently?
First days of this week have just flown away. Today is actually the first day this week I'm not going anywhere! It's raining too, so what's better than playing with some fabrics and a little bit sewing?! 

Thanks for your comments on the daisy blocks! Since my previous post, I played around a little bit and decided to make three more blocks of each and turn ...

Shopping bag from Granny Maud's Girl

I started sewing the little patchwork panel for this shopping bag in June last year. Why did it take me so long to finish?

Foldaway shopping bag made by Granny Maud's Girl

The handle features a traditional patchwork star.

All was going swimmingly, but as I was about to sew closed the turning opening in the rectangular panel that makes up the handle, I did a test fold and discovered that it was too small to wrap around the bag, no matter how tightly I folded or rolled the bag. I realised that I would have to unpick the handle and make the background panel larger. It was ...

Swapsies from Granny Maud's Girl

I had not taken part in a swap in a very long time, so when I spotted the call for sign-ups for the #petitepatchworkswap, I put my hand up even though the sensible side of my brain knew that my time is limited and I should not. The swap organiser, @jasminesews, asked everyone to make a pouch and a small placemat or large coaster – small and manageable, I thought.

I know some people avoid swaps like the plague, but I genuinely enjoy them. I like the challenge of making something small for someone else and playing with techniques that my ...

Elgin Piecemaker's Challenge Reveal. from The Cozy Quilter

The Elgin Piecemaker's guild has issued a challenge each year for the past few years to the members to create a project with certain parameters...this year we each had to bring a yard of batik to our November meeting.  I brought the bright blue fabric at the top of the picture below.   We stood in a  circle, each holding our yard of fabric in one hand and a pair of scissors in the other hand.  We were instructed to fold our fabric in half, make a small snip with the scissors at the fold and then rip the ...
