How to Make a Duct Tape Pouch from Patchwork Posse

How to make a duct tape pouch in a hexagon shape! So cute and simple. Great kids crafts for anytime of year. Band closure keeps all the stuff tucked inside.

Today we are going to talk about Hexagons . I’ve for some reason picked up an obsession with it…and I love it!  

I am kind of a puzzle girl and love shapes and different ways to use them.  

This pouch is perfect to stuff with your ipod, lipgloss, breath mints., or some quick cash.

Petal Pouch in Polk from Luna Lovequilts

I have just realized that I have still not shared pictures of these four pouches I made last February. A good thing since I have nothing new to blog about at the moment ... :-)

Je viens de réaliser que je n'ai toujours pas montré de photos de ces quatre pochettes réalisées en février dernier. C'est une bonne chose car je n'ai rien de nouveau à montrer sur le blog en ce moment ... :-)

Luna Lovequilts - Petal Pouch pattern by Noodlehead combined to Polk collection by Carolyn Friedlander - Four pieces

The pattern I used is Petal Pouch designed by Noodlehead. I chose the small size which I particularly like.

Color Master of the Month: Sapphire Shine from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Color mood board

Spring is finally here, FULL force! Time to celebrate all the beauty that comes with the season, blooming flowers and delicious fruits. While looking for inspiration this month, the most common spring colors are usually pastels and that led me to pick periwinkle to be the star this month. So, as I scavenged all our Color Master boxes, I picked this “Sapphire Shine” edition that has a lovely play on soft purples and hints of blue that remind me of amethyst crystals (like the picture on the top left corner). This group of fabrics has a specific theme, not just ...

Scooter Minibag by Bucklebee from Becca's Crazy Projects

When I was looking at what the vendors at the Southern Comforters Quilt Guild quilt show I came across a fun little bag pattern that I wanted to try. This is the Bucklebee Scooter Minibag. You can find your own copy of this pattern (non-affiliated link) on the Bucklebee website.
I poked around in my collection of fabric and found a fun print and some coordinating solids.
I didn't used the recommended hardware, or strap directions because I have so many little bits of hardware from I made up the right size for my hardware and got ...

"Spring Garden" Inspired Fabric from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog


Spring Garden BLOG

Happy Spring, makers!


Who’s ready for some spring sewing?! I'm sure everyone is ready for a break from this (what seems to be) a very long winter! Although, many people up north of the United States are still getting makes me a little more grateful for the heat we have down here in Florida. If you don’t know already, my favorite color is green and for this spring I really wanted to stay away from typical pastel colors that are common for the season! I selected some of my favorite prints that represent a lushes ...

Embroidered Pouch from Becca's Crazy Projects

I have a few machine embroidery designs from Disorderly Threads. Occasionally, they announce a discount on new designs through their Disorderly Threads Facebook page. The Octopus design was one I couldn't resist.
This design is an in-the-hoop machine embroidery design. These are great for people that want to do machine embroidery and sew small projects but aren't so great at the sewing part. All the steps, including adding the lining is done completely on the embroidery machine. My bag-making skills are fine, but it is nice to use the embroidery machine to work on something while I'm ...

De La Luna collection from Luna Lovequilts

You bought the Tula Pink De La Luna collection and are still wondering how to use it ?! Here are a few ideas ... I have been hesitating to order it since it has started to pop up on social media. I had mixed feelings ... I really like the design but I always find challenging to use such large scale patterns. I finally indulged myself in the vendor area at EPM in September ... I had no precise idea at that moment and bought the 'Possessed' print in two colours and some coordinated.

Pleated pouch from Luna Lovequilts

Do you remember this pleated pouch I already shared in a post late November ?
Vous vous souvenez de cette pochette plissée que j'ai déjà montré dans un article fin novembre ?

Luna Lovequilts - Pleated pouch in Cotton and steel fabrics - tutorial by Skip to my Lou

I sewed another version in the meantime ! You can find the tutorial I used on Skip to my Lou blog. I made two changes though. First I added interfacing to stiffen the pouch. Usually I add it to the exterior pieces but because of the pleats I chose for this pattern to fuse it to the lining.

J'ai réalisé une autre version entre temps ! Vous pouvez trouver le ...

Travel Knitting Kit from Becca's Crazy Projects

When I travel, I usually take along a simple kitting project to keep my hands busy during flights or long drives. This means I may need a few knitting tools. I want to share my kit so you can see what I have and carry regularly. I've never had a problem flying with this kit in my carry-on bag. I only fly domestically in the United States, so your mileage may vary. 

I always have a project bag dedicated to my travel project. It helps me keep the yarn, needles and kit separate from the other things in my ...

Coin purse and more from Luna Lovequilts

Last May a student asked me how to make a pouch with a front zipper. Actually I needed to practice a bit since I hadn't done this before ...

En mai dernier, une élève m'a demandé comment réaliser une pochette avec un zip sur le devant. En fait, comme je n'en avait jamais fait, j'ai dû pratiquer un peu ...

MQG Pouch Swap from Becca's Crazy Projects

The DC Modern Quilt Guild and the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild are doing a bag swap at the next Baltimore MQG meeting.

As one would expect, partner assignments went out weeks ago and I just got around to constructing my swap bag. The recommended pattern was the Open Wide Pouch by Noodlehead. It's a free pattern with a great tutorial. I dug around in my stash for the appropriate colors. At least I hope they are the appropriate colors.
Then I fiddled with Electric Quilt 8 until I had design I liked. The block finishes at 12" by 12 ...

Tech Pouch Tutorial from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello my creative friends!

Handmade gifts are special because they represent all the thinking, effort, and time that you dedicated to let someone you love know how much you care. We want to give them something that they will love and use.  In this tutorial we will be making a phone pouch using quilted fabrics and binding. This is a fun and creative project to meet our gifting needs. You can also make this into a laptop or tablet pouch. Simply change the measurements of your pieces and you will get the same result. What a better choice than the ...

Open Wide Pouches from Becca's Crazy Projects

The Open Wide Zippered Pouch tutorial designed by Anna of Noodlehead is my favorite pouch pattern. It is so easy for me to change the basic measurements to fit the fabric and zippers I have on-hand.

I decided it was time to use this fun trick-or-treat fabric to make something. The Open Wide Zippered Pouch was perfect. This is made using the medium size bag with a minor modificaton to make the perfect knitting project bag. Instead of cutting the fabric panels only 9" tall I cut them to 12" by 12". That way I get a deeper bag. I ...

Back to school with some finishes from Espritpatch

School started back today! The summer holidays have disappeared so quickly, I can't believe it's over already. Anyway no big school bags this year but just some accessories. I finally finished my daughter's pencil case. 

All it needed was to neaten the raw edge inside which I did with a little bias binding, I could have just serged them but I thought it would be nicer with some binding.

As for the pencil roll, she started sewing it in the summer but the bobbin ran out and after that she lost interest. 
Anyway she at least made ...

Back to School Sewing Essentials from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Greetings, makers!


I can’t believe summer’s almost over. I remember as a kid (when I was age 12) I would dread listening to all the “back to school” commercials in mid-July 😂, especially since my mom would worry about getting my supplies early because if you waited too long, shopping becomes chaotic with all the parents scrambling to get what they need. But here we are now, 10 years later repeating history with my 12 year old brother! My brother is starting school in the next couple of weeks, and although he is not excited, he is looking forward ...

Progress on hexie and neutral quilts from Quilting & Learning

I have two quilt projects on the go, and today I'll be sharing my progress on both.

Epic Neutral Bow Tie Quilt

I wrote a post on my Epic Neutral Bow Tie quilt in June. As I mentioned there, I really love this quilt since it's fairly easy but interesting and it can be made a batch at a time. I've finished my second batch.

Epic Neutral Bow Tie Quilt - a few more blocks
It's great when you can put a few of these blocks together to see what it's starting to look like.

Squirrels and July plans from Quilting & Learning

Even though I have tons of projects on the go, I can't help but be sidetracked by new shiny colourful things!

Squirrel project

My Squirrel project this month is a lovely pouch called "Selvage Love" that was designed by Kristy Lea of Make Modern Magazine.
Selvage Love pattern from Make Modern Magazine
I've been wanting to make something with selvage strips for a while now. This seemed like the perfect little project. I added a pocket to the inside lining so it should be useful. 

If you're wondering why I called it a "Squirrel" project, it's ...

Petal Pouch for a friend from Luna Lovequilts

One of my friends commissioned me to make a pouch she wanted to gift to her niece. I showed her a few patterns I used these past months and we settled on the Petal Pouch designed by Noodlehead. Since I don't know personally the final recipient I made two versions in different styles to choose from.

Une de mes amies m'avait demandé de réaliser une pochette qu'elle voulait offrir à sa nièce. Je lui ai montré quelques modèles que j'ai utilisés ces derniers mois et nous avons opté pour le modèle Petal Pouch dessiné par ...

Around Town Little Pouches from Sotak Handmade

The weather has been absolutely crazy. We had one good, warm day and now it's back to winter jackets, grrrr. Seriously! It seems like there's no end to this horrid winter.  And, to top things off I came down with the most nasty cold combined with a cough that sends everyone running as soon as they hear it :( I can't even remember last time I was this sick, yuck!

As you can imagine, my productivity was close to zero these last few days, unless watching Narcos on Netflix counts as something productive? Yeah, probably not :)

I did ...
