Stylish Monogrammed Weekender Tote

Friday, 05 October 2018 1:00

This large weekender tote combines some of our favorite fabric types: natural, nubby twill, soft faux suede, and happy gingham for a pop of color and pattern. It also has the perfect soft feel, which makes it extremely packable. Not so soft and slouchy that it puddles on the floor, but also not so stiff that it seems to stand at attention if you set it down. Fill it up for a weekend getaway. Take it with you on your weekend shopping excursions. Or use it to carry your sewing and craft projects. 

Five-Pocket Sofa or Chair Arm Caddy

Tuesday, 02 October 2018 1:00

Handy. Who doesn't want or need things to be handy? Have you ever heard anyone say, "No thanks, I'd prefer everything be just out of reach" ?!  Whether you're struggling to keep yourself organized or know someone who could use a little tidying up help, this caddy can help corral important items in just a few feet of space. The top section of the caddy is extra long (32") and should easily fit over most upholstered chair or sofa arms. It can also be slipped under a seat cushion, between a mattress and box spring, or even looped over a hanger in your closet to hold accessories and jewelry. 

See-Through, Box Bottom Zipper Pouch

Monday, 01 October 2018 1:00

One of our most popular project categories is the Little Zippered Pouch. Similar in must-have status to the LBD (Little Black Dress), we’ve found that you simply cannot have too many zippered pouches in a variety of sizes and styles. This cool design combines pretty cotton at the top with a handy see-through bottom in flexible, sewable vinyl. 

Compact Quilted Duffle with Handles & Adjustable Strap: Dritz Hardware

Monday, 17 September 2018 1:00

We always get compliments on our custom duffle patterns, but we realized the one category we hadn’t tackled was a smaller size bag that would work for kids or anyone who wants a space-saving, on-the-go option. We created a soft, quilted exterior so the duffle can gently expand and mold to better fit its contents. And we used Dritz® hardware and polyester belting to pull it all together, adding a fully adjustable and detachable shoulder strap plus Double Cap Rivets to strengthen the pocket tops, and a handy Swivel Hook key lanyard on the inside. It’s true what they say, good things do come in small packages! 

Drawstring, 8-Pocket Jewelry Pouch for Travel & More

Friday, 07 September 2018 1:00

Your favorite shiny beads and baubles deserve to come along on vacation too. But figuring out how to pack them, without opening your suitcase upon arrival to find a tangled mess, is always a challenge. Our traveling jewelry pouch is up to the task. It has eight, wedge-shaped pockets to hold necklaces, earrings, rings, and watches. The pouch gathers up with a drawstring, safely enclosing the pockets in an upright position. 

The Classic Canteen Bag in Denim, Flannel & Corduroy

Wednesday, 05 September 2018 1:00

Channel your inner Boy or Girl Scout. Our round, canteen-style bag has a great retro look in a classic fall fabric combination: plaid flannel, denim, and corduroy. We even added appliquéd patches on the front. Bold metal hardware for the zipper and the strap adds the professional finish. This time of year there are great selections of all these fabrics in-store and online. We are particular fans of Robert Kaufman's Mammoth Plaid Flannels! Use our free pattern download to create the round exterior panels as well as the matching curved pocket. 

French Market Tote with Chain Handles in Chanel Style

Tuesday, 28 August 2018 1:00

High-end boutique style you can make yourself! Our French Market Tote will make a bold fashion statement as you stroll the open air markets of Provence, France or the aisles of your local farmer's market and specialty grocer. Load it up with fresh baguettes and bouquets of bright flowers. The pièce de résistance is the great Coco Chanel style chain and leather (faux leather in our case) handles. It's the perfect synergy of unique trim and dramatic fabric blended to achieve a designer look. We love to show you how to look at combinations from a new angle, to mix textures, and experiment with unexpected pairings. 

Lightweight String Style Backpack with Crossover Pockets

Tuesday, 14 August 2018 1:00

String style backpacks are in high demand right now for back-to-school, but they're really a year-round, on-the-go mainstay. They're compact and lightweight but can still hold plenty. You can find them in almost every style, from ripstop athletic gear to high-end leather bags. Ours is made in brightly colored quilting weight cotton. And to give the design even more functionality, we added unique front crossover pockets, which create four individual sections to hold smaller items.

Box Style Tote with Yarn Wrapped Handles & Accents

Monday, 06 August 2018 1:00

Often, the best way to showcase an interesting embellishment is to keep your fabric muted so the featured technique shines. We used a variegated cotton yarn to create custom wrapped handles on this classic box tote – then added yarn whip stitching along the pocket top and an eye-catching crosshatch to hold the unique reverse box corners in place. Dimension, color, and style all in one.

Ball Frame Bridesmaid's Clutch

Tuesday, 31 July 2018 1:00

One of the most popular wedding trends is to create coordinated clutches for the bridesmaids. These adorable little purses are just the right size to carry a few important items to the wedding and reception. Many brides also use them to hold special wedding day gifts for their girlfriends. We even found some stories out there about brides who've skipped traditional bridesmaid bouquets, choosing instead to put real or silk flowers on coordinated clutches and have the girls carry these down the aisle. Our design uses a classic 9" x 3" metal frame with a ball clasp. Of course, there is absolutely no rule saying this is only for brides and bridesmaids. It's a classic look for any occasion.
