Take a look at what I created:

Growing Garden

I love when I have the opportunity to combine my love of stamping with my love of sewing.

I sewed this apron so that I could use Technique Tuesday Growing Garden to decorate it. I love how it turned out. I wish I photograph the sewing process but didn’t think of it until after I completed it. LOL!!

Let’s take a closer look:

No color was add because I wanted to stay with the black and white design.

Decorating the boarder with the growing plant stamp really made the boarder pop.

Growing Garden

I love how all of the stamps coordinate with one another. That made it easy to decorate each pocket.

This apron is on its way to my good friend in North Carolina. She started a garden in her backyard and this gift would be perfect for her.

Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

Second Post for today
If your looking for Technique Tuesday Day 2 Release, click here

 

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Crafty Friends Blog Hop!! Today we are celebrating our unique community by sharing a project inspired by our favorite crafter or an anecdote about our crafting adventures.  If you arrived here from Scrapbook & Cards Today blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Scrapbook Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my fabric scrapbook:

Reflection Scrapbook Collection

I sooo love this little fabric scrapbook album. I started 20 years ago when my son was born. I stopped after a couple of years and then fell in love with card-making. Recently, I discovered sewing and I can’t stop sewing, LOL!

For this project I decided to combine my love of all things crafty to share with you, my crafty friends!!

Here’s how I created this scrapbook album:

Decide on the fabric and cut two 7in squares. I used Adornit Vintage Polka Dot Yellow fabric.

Decide on the ribbon that would be used to close the album. I used Adornit Brown Polka Dot Ribbon.

You can hand stitch or machine stitch the ribbon to the back of one of the fabric squares.

Cut two 5inch pieces of white cardstock and adhere it the center of the wrong side of the fabric.

Using fabric glue, glue all of the side to the center of the paper.

Do this to both piece of fabric.

Cut two piece of cardstock 5 x 12 and score them 4 and 8 giving you 3 panels. Fold on the score lines and adhere the two pieces together to create an accordion look.

Adhere the back and front of the accordion to the front and back of the fabric pieces to create the album.

It should look like this.

After you assemble the scrapbook, its time to decorate it!

Reflection Scrapbook Collection

Add stickers to each page, leaving space for a photo. The photos can vary in size up to 3.5 x 3.5.

Reflection Scrapbook Collection

Close the book, string the chipboard onto the ribbon and tie a pretty bow.

Sewing Bags, Pouches and Wallets!!

Hello everyone!! I’m excited to be here today.  I found a new craft that I love and its sewing!!!  Yes!  I’m sewing bags, pouches and wallets!!  I can’t believe I was afraid to even touch a sewing machine until my daughter showed me how easy it was to use.

Let’s Take A Look:

Be You Zipper Pouch

I used a pretty fat bundle of fabric from Walmart, Thermoweb Fusible Fuse and Cricut Royal Blue Foil Iron-on to create this super cute pouch! I used the Cricut EasyPress to adhere the foil to the fabric.

Its 100% cotton with a plastic zipper. This tote is washable by hand.

Personalized Becca Bag

I created these bags for my coworkers.  It was a Christmas gift from me to them.

For these pouches, I used fabric and zippers from Joann’s, Thermoweb Fusible Fleece, Cricut EasyPress and Cricut Light Gold Foil Iron-on.

Zipper Clutch Wallet

For this Zipper Clutch Wallet, I used the Cricut Maker, Cricut Fabric Apricot & Persimmon Sampler and Therm0web Fusible Fuse.

I love this wallet.  It is so cute and that zipper is to die for!!

This is just the beginning for me.  I can’t wait to maker more items.  I’m also thinking about opening a store.  Yes, I’m really taking my love of crafting to higher heights.  Stay tune for my new endeavors.

Thanks for stopping by!
