DIY Reusable Tote Bags from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi Makers! 

My name is Trisha. I’ve joined AGF in December 2019 and so far my experience has been very enjoyable. The best part is being surrounded by creative people every day. As well as learning more about the sewing community. I’ve always had some sort of exposure to it by working at Fabrics & Crafts store when I was younger and from my grandmother having her own tailor shop back in the old days.  Some further background info about me, I was born and raised here in South Florida. I have a bachelor’s in Graphic Design so ...

An easy kitchen gift to make from Winter Wanderings

I've learned how to make a new gift item for family and friends.  The supplies are easy:  
a kitchen towel (can be a special holiday towel, or any kitchen towel that makes you smile), 
a coordinating potholder with a loop to hang it by, 
a large decorative button 
and matching thread.


To make this easy-to-sew kitchen gift:
First, gather the supplies listed above: a dish towel, coordinating potholder, decorative button and matching thread.
    
Hint: Use a potholder with a loop as the loop becomes the buttonhole, but I am getting ahead of myself.  The loop can be placed in ...

How to Make a Pillowcase with French Seams, No Raw Edges, No Serger Needed! from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

For our seventh Make of Christmas we are bringing back an oldie but a goodie. In this replay on how to make a pillowcase, I show you how to use your leftover yardage or novelty fabric to create a custom pillowcase with no raw edges.

That means we cover how to do a hot dog roll to get all of your raw edges concealed in the pillowcase sleeve, and how to make a French seam, which sounds way more complicated than it actually is, to give your pillowcase a finished look with no raw edges. No serger needed!

acorn tutorial time . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

These little fellows were just so much fun to make ... and to me they were especially endearing, knowing that their little caps came from our own trees!  They whip up really quickly and easily, so if my instructions are tough to follow, it's me, not them!

First, round up some caps!  We have a number of different types of acorn-bearing oaks in the camp, so I was able to find some different looking styles and sizes!  
We've been really wet over the past several weeks, so after I picked up all the caps I wanted, I put them ...

Essex Wallet (new pdf pattern) from Sotak Handmade


Hello friends, I hope you all are doing well.

I'm super, super excited as I get to share my newest pattern with you today :)


This is Essex Wallet.

I've been meaning to design a wallet pattern for quite some time so having this cutie all finished feels even more special than usual.


I love how this wallet isn't too large, yet it's roomy enough for all the necessities one might need. There are slots for eight cards, two slip pockets for cash, and even a super handy zipper compartment. Plus a closure tab, of course.

I ...

Fall Cleaning from Becca's Crazy Projects

I've been looking at the front of the travel trailer and thinking how shabby it looks. I convinced Darling Husband to try out an outdoor cleaner
So much better! Although, now it is the end of the season and it is unlikely we'll be hitting the road anytime soon. At least it looks nice in the drive.

removable wrist strap (video tutorial) from Sotak Handmade

Hello lovelies, happy Tuesday to you all!

As I mentioned last week, I've been diving into my scrap bins and trying to come up with many different ways of turning all those precious pieces of fabric into useful projects. I seem to have a lot of strings in my bins and I thought making some removable wrist straps for my pouches would be fun. And, it totally was :).


I love that all I needed to make each of these wrist straps was one 2'' x 12'' strip of quilting cotton, one 2'' x 11'' strip of interfacing (I used ...

FALL ORNAMENTS from Sewing Lab





Oh man! It's already quite cold outside and around 4 pm totally dark, but what can I say...I love fall here! I really love seeing all the wooden houses with the lights on and with lots of lighted candles placed on every window, it's so cozy!

We are spending a lot of time indoors these days, our afternoons are basically coffee, music, candles and blankets. Yesterday I spent some time hand sewing some cute fall ornaments to hang around the house! The two leaves are made from an Ikea fabric I bought some time ago (which I ...
