Your New Life/Finger Saver!

clock June 11, 2016 05:45 by author Madison

If you're like me, you probably know the pain of burning your fingers on the iron or hot glue all too well. When you're trying to do small little projects its very hard to not burn yourself. Or if your lucky and haven't burnt yourself with the iron or a hot glue gun then I'm sure you've poked yourself with a needle while sewing. And if you haven't then that's pretty amazing and I would like to know how you do it! But I'm sure that the majority of us have not been as lucky. No matter how hard we try to be careful we still end up hurting ourselves. Thankfully someone realized our pain and made something to help us out. They're called Thermal Finger Guards. These cute little rubber things fit on the tips of your fingers. With them on you can accidentally get your fingers with the iron or the hot glue gun and you won't feel a thing! You can even wear them as a thimble too! Finally something that will save your poor fingers from your clumsiness with the iron or hot glue gun. And if you have sausage fingers or thin fingers they will fit any size. They come in red, purple, blue, orange and lime green. They come in a pack of three so three of your fingers can feel safe. So save your fingers and make them feel safe by coming and checking these guys out!

Have you been loving doing 10 minute table runners? I recently just finished tow the other day and I have to say they can be addicting! They are cute, easy, quick, and simple and they look gorgeous wherever you decided to put them. But whats even better than a 10 minute table runner? The mini table runners! Not only are they smaller and cuter they take less than 10 minutes! The mini table runners are perfect for putting on the back of the toilet or on a dresser or anywhere you want! They add a cute and fun vibe wherever you place them. And it gets better! Two fat quarters makes two mini table runners! Yes that means twice as many mini table runners.

Your next project?!

While looking at this beautiful fabric, Ruth (my grandma) came up with an idea on how to use up this fabric. She decided to make a jelly roll 1600 race out of it! she cut 2 1/2 wide strips and got to sewing. Since the fabric has such a beautiful pattern to it, it looks beautiful just by itself. This is something that's perfect for just hanging up in any room and your house. It will brighten up any room you chose to put in it and be a great thing to decorate with. This is something that's easy and quick and can bring so much to a room. I definitely recommend making this one!

The Famous Fold N Stitch Wreath

clock February 27, 2016 05:34 by author Ruth

Considering it's all anyone has been talking about lately you've probably heard about the Fold N Stitch Wreath. People are already coming up with their own versions and spins on the pattern and they are beautiful! Some people are figuring out how to make them look like 3-D flowers and some are playing around with different colors to really make it pop. With this pattern there are so many different things you can do with it, the possibilities are endless. And the best part about it is that you can make yours completely unique and no one else will have one like it. You can choose to hang it on your front door or make it the center of attention on your dining room table.

The Peeps

clock February 20, 2016 04:26 by author Ruth

As I had mentioned in a blog post a couple weeks ago I am currently working on a project for spring. It is the Blossom in Spring seasonal skinnies featuring the peeps. This project has taught me a lot so far. I first learned how to use fusible web to make the shape of the peeps. The fusible was easy and I thought it was fun. I also learned that you can glue buttons on instead of sewing them on which was nice. But so far the hardest part has been the blanket stitch I have to sew around each of the peeps. I've never done a blanket stitch so this was my fist time using it. And let me tell you it was a struggle! Just when I thought I had the hang of it I would reach a little corner and then all hope was lost.

I have not finished it yet, since I have to take lots of breaks just so I don't go crazy. But despite all the trouble with the blanket stitch I have thoroughly enjoyed this project. I've learned lots of new things and gained lots of new skills. I can't wait to see it finished and can't wait to share the finished product with you all.

Bugs!

clock February 13, 2016 07:29 by author Ruth

With spring just around the corner we have all been dying to start a project that goes with spring. And to enhance that excitement we recently just got a bunch of super cute bug fabrics in. These fabrics would be perfect for a small quilt for the little ones you know or to make a cute little bag for them! We have a pattern for a drawstring bag that is perfect for little kids to carry whatever they want. Or you could make a smaller little bag that could hold their legos, toy cars, or barbie clothes! After you see how cute the bag you made is then you will want to make one for yourself!

 

This is the pouch that would be

perfect for the little ones to

carry their toys in.
