This wonderful little caddy came about thanks to your requests on our You Asked 4 It list! Many of you had suggested we design a purse organizer. What are these brilliant little carriers? By loading up all your essentials into one multi-pocket pouch, all you need to do when you change bags is to switch the organizer from one to the other. It also makes it much easier to find those essentials – no more digging around at the bottom of your purse to locate your headphones!
The New Year is in full swing, which means many of us are dusting off our resolutions to “get organized!” We have a full week of projects you can make to pack, stash, and store your stuff, kicking off with these cute curved zipper cases. We’ve asked it before and we’ll ask it again: "Can you ever have too many zip pouches in various shapes and sizes?" We think not!
Our trio of travel necessities can be made as a matched set or you can create each one individually. Start off your set with this roomy, hold-everything tote. We chose two coordinating canvas prints in tones of oatmeal and rose – a color combination that works year ‘round. And, why rely on designer logos when you can be your own brand? A subtle bit of gorgeous embroidery is the finishing touch that really makes a project your own.
Warm up to the new year with one of our ultra cozy flannel and faux sherpa scarves. Sherpa is one of the “it” fabrics for cold weather accessories, and today’s faux fur and fleece sherpa options make it both easy and economical to add this thick and bundle-y texture to your winter warm-up projects. We paired our sherpa fleece with another perennial winter favorite: plaid flannel. The bouncy finishing touch are the jumbo poms at each end of the scarf, because fluffy pom poms make everything a little bit happier.
You can't sit and sew home décor projects all day long. Sometimes you need an exercise break ... but not a break from style. We paired a décor weight exterior with a standard weight cotton lining, both in vibrant colors and prints. Then we calmly meditated on the easiest instructions with the most stylish details. The result guarantees good karma for all who tote this tote to class.
The ultimate softness of luxury plush fabric originally hit the scene as an ideal choice for bundling up babies. We doubled the cozy quotient of ours by mixing the Shannon Dimple Cuddle with an extra soft flannel. You'll love this blanket's easy binding. It's formed by wrapping the larger flannel backing square around to the front and over the Cuddle square to create a wide, continuous border. We also show you a clever way to stitch the rick rack in place for a perfect reveal along each edge and into the corners.
Everyone who loves Mary Engelbreit raise your hand! You’re in good company; this creative woman has been stealing our hearts with her adorable designs for decades. And now: ribbons! We are thrilled our friends at Renaissance Ribbons are now offering Mary Engelbreit ribbons. We designed a sweet little girl’s apron to feature their latest Over The Rainbow Ribbon Pack.

When the temperature dips or the wind flies, can chapped lips be far behind? This time of year, it can be difficult to keep your lips moist and protected from the elements. Your best defense is a good offense: constant swipes from your trusty tube of lip balm. I don't know about you, but I have tons of tubes of lip balm, however, there's never one nearby when I need it. So I end up buying another! Our mini key ring pouches are a Sew4Home Classic, and they make a perfect fast and easy gift for yourself as well as all your chap-lipped friends. They're also an awesome ScrapBusters project. Make several of these adorable key ring lip balm holders so you always have your favorite tubes on hand... and can stop buying more than you need.
For yourself or as a gift, this shoulder bag is the ideal blend of two cool weather wardrobe staples: soft plaid flannel and crisp denim. The bag’s slight teardrop shape and soft construction gives it a signature slouch that’s as everyday-comfortable as your favorite flannel shirt and jeans. Plaid continues as a hot fashion topic in fashion this year.
During the gray days of winter, bring on the blocks of color! These box totes are sewn up in 100% linen so they have a wonderfully soft slouch. Each bag features three coordinating solid colors set against one another in big, bold blocks both inside and out. Get ready to make a statement for the new year… and the new decade!
