Two colors, two fabrics, one awesome bag. This clutch knocks-off a popular style we spotted on the shelves of several high-end boutiques. We love being able to give you the inspiration and instructions to make your own beautiful bags and totes for a fraction of the hundreds of dollars listed on designer price tags.
If we must say so ourselves (and sometimes we must), these little coin purses are about as adorable as they come! Not only do they get five stars on the cuteness chart, they are super easy. Make one for yourself (because you deserve it!), then make a bundle for your friends. They are the perfect fast and fun gift. Fill them with coins and gift cards, tasty treats, or other little goodies. We used a variety of different eye-poppin' colors and patterns for our exteriors with a matching fabric (but in three different colorways) on the inside to tie our three together as a set. Spare change just got a whole lot more fun!
Goody, goody gumdrop! This cute zippered clutch combines several of our favorite embellishments: ribbon, beads, and tassels. Extra long zipper-pull charms are on-trend this season. They can add a bit of bling to any bag, but are an especially fun accent for this clutch with its bright colors and playful pattern. Of course, it's always an option to experiment with your own combinations; a neutral palette with natural stone beads would be another lovely look.
If you're happy and you know it... make a pillow. Pillows are one of the best things for a beginner to tackle; they're fast, fun projects for anyone and immediately brighten up your décor. This pillow is what we envision Little Miss Muffet's tuffet must have looked like. A little bit cushion and a little bit pillow in one!
Eyes on the road! Municipalities are cracking down on distracted drivers, making it a perfect time to create a caddy for your car that can keep important items within reach yet enough out of the way so they don’t interfere with the task at hand: driving! We used a clever combination of Dritz® hardware and elastic for ease and flexibility. This would be a great organizer for anyone who spends a lot of time in the car. Add a few of auto safety products to make it an even smarter gift idea.
When we're young, our parents are just our parents. Often, it's not until we're looking back over our shoulders or packing up boxes for an estate sale that we take a close look at their fashions and belongings and realize, "Wow... they were pretty stylin'." Today's stunning half apron design has a crisp, tailored look to it, and the jacquard ribbons from Renaissance Ribbons reminded both my sister and me of our father's favorite skinny striped ties, which he would wear tp work with a starched white shirt and a suit coat on even the hottest days of summer. Indeed... he was stylin'.
The most basic of box bottom bags becomes a top-notch Halloween Treat Bag thanks to three Frightful Faces made from Dritz Products and Notions as well as a few bits and pieces from your own scrap stash. Iron-on Lettering personalizes each bag and a sturdy 1” Dritz Belting handle means your little ghosts and goblins can load them up with lots o’ loot.
Fussy. Cut. We love to have our way with fabric, manipulating it to best showcase motifs and colors. Clever fussy cutting allows you to tell a story with your project. And when you’re working with fabric as amazingly detailed as De La Luna by Tula Pink for FreeSpirit Fabrics, the options are endless. We’ve created a trio of patchwork pillows that bring the Halloween spirit of this collection to life. Full cutting and piecing instructions are given below for our square, rectangle, and hexagonal set. We worked with fat quarters, but you could also easily start with regular yardage cuts.
A little wicked glamour and a wicked little spider come together to make a spellbinding Halloween mask. It's what the most beguiling witches are wearing this season; combining spider web construction with a practical soft fleece backing. Your jeweled spider continues to weave its web while you bewitch those who dare to cross your path.
