Making Plans & Planner Covers for 2021

  A new year is coming. It’s around the corner.

Each December I make planner covers from Kraft-tex. Each cover is the PERFECT time to try new techniques and to experiment. 

NOTE: As a C&T Publishing ambassador I received the Kraft-tex to make this project. As an affiliate for CT Publishing and AccuQuilt, I share compensated links at no cost to you.

For my last 2020 Kraft-tex Ambassador project I made several Kraft-tex covers. In addition to other colors, I used  Turquoise Designer Kraft-tex, the color for December 2020

What’s new? Instead of using clear vinyl, how about using a colorful bag from the Dollar Tree store for cover insert sleeves?

Dollar Tree has beautiful and fun designs on their plastic shopping bags. I saw this one a few months back ...

Portable Phone Charging Station

How many times have you charged your phone with a wall outlet only to have the phone resting on the floor?

When I was traveling, I often saw this scenario at airports. Times have changed and the universal need for a charging holder maybe waning.  Nevertheless, I wanted to make a portable charging station for my phone.

NOTE: As a Kraft-tex Ambassador, I received Kraft-tex from CT Publishing to make this project. I am also an affiliate and receive a small commission when a link on this website is clicked and a purchase is made. It ...

Try Something New with Kraft-tex

 I finally made time to have some fun with ink stamping and heat embossing. I’ve had a desire to learn how to use stamps and embossing powder for several months now.

image

I’ve been gathering ink pads, stamps, stencils, powders and accessories for 8 months. During that time I have been watching video tutorials too.

image

First, I practiced on white card stock. The leaf stamp is inked with Ranger archival inks: Jet Black, Paradise Teal and Sepia.  Once the paper is stamped with ink, clear embossing powder is spread over the wet ink.  Next ...

2019 - A Fruitful Year

Is it possible I made all these quilts in 2019?!  A year for me is 10 months. I don’t sew in November and December.  I have been a busy bee!

Making Plans


Plans. I have them. You have them. Sometimes plans need to live on paper and not just in our mind. Do you use a planner? I not only use a planner, I NEED one to organize my weekly, monthly and yearly schedule.


I made a cover for this planner a few months ago. However, I wanted creative playtime with Island Batiks, thread and Kraft-tex.



The fabric stripe are fun, but best part of this project are the vinyl windows! The windows are perfect for featuring you favorite quilt block or fabric.

Travel Tray Inspiration

Have you made a travel tray?  

Travel trays have been on my “To Make” list for a while. So, I thought they would be perfect for the Island Batik Ambassador 3D Challenge.  This the first of two 3D challenge projects.

Island Batik and Kraft-tex Trays

Island Batik and Kraft-tex is a winning combination for a travel tray. Kraft-tex is firm yet flexible. The tray sides remain at an angle even when the tray is unsnapped.

Planner Cover

I’ve been falling in love with the rugged-durability of Kraft-tex, so I decided to make a Kraft-tex cover for my 2020 Quilter’s Planner and Pocket Notes book. 

The design is my own. It is a practical design with functional options like a pen and marker holder, and a business card pocket.

NOTE: The Quilter’s Planner, C&T Publishing and Island Batik provided the planner, Kraft-tex and fabric for this project.

Of course, I had to make a  cover for the Pocket Notes book. Isn’t the heart window cute?  Never fear, vinyl was stitch around ...
