June Mystery Projects!

Hi there!  I am excited to announce the bundle for June's mystery projects!  I am pretty thrilled about this one! :)  When I saw these 30's minis from Penny Rose,  I knew I had to use them for June's projects! :)  I pretty much adore every print in this collection, and I'm sure you will too! 



Click HERE to purchase the June Mystery Project Bundle!


How it works:  I will be sharing tutorials for 3 fun projects during the month of June on the FWFS blog.   I will be creating my projects from this bundle, featuring the 30's Minis Collection by Penny Rose!   Although I can't share the designs with you right now, you'll be making a mini-quilt / wall hanging, potholders, and a set of tea towels.

PDF downloadable instructions will be available for all of the projects on the FWFS Blog.  

This bundle will give you what is needed to complete the 3 mystery projects (including any backing and binding), and you may even have some scraps left for your stash!

This bundle contains a total of 5.16 yards of 30's Minis & background fabric,  plus toweling and ric rac.

  • 22 different 30's Minis Prints, as pictured
  • Riley Blake's Cotton Shades in Snow for the backgrounds
  • Toweling to make 2 tea towels
  • Ric Rac for accents

This is by far our biggest bundle for our Mystery Project series a whopping 5 yards!! But seriously I think it's my favorite to date!!  I really would love it if you sewed along with me! I have some really fun projects planned, and I think you are really going to love them!

The schedule is:

DIY Bag with Zipper Pocket {Free Pattern}

Hi there! You know when you see a fabric, and you immediately know what you want to make with it?  Well that happened to me when I saw this lovely print from Katarina Roccella's newest line Skopelos.  It combines two of my favorite things: stripes and flowers.  So naturally, I knew I had to make a bag out of it! :) 

Click HERE to purchase the kit!

This is an easy bag with a simple zip pocket in the front! Don't shy away from it because it has a zipper!  Putting the zipper in this bag is way easier than it looks, and you will love the finished result! And you will wonder why you haven't tried putting a zipper in a bag before, because it is so simple!


The other fantastic part about this bag is that there are not pattern pieces to cut out and pin to your fabric! Everything is cut out as squares and rectangles...so that alone saves you so much time! I whipped this up in about two hours, which is pretty fast for bag making!

Click HERE to purchase the kit!

The bag is fully lined, with the loveliest fabric! I love the modern vibes and colors of this line of fabric, and I couldn't be happier with how they play so well with each other in this bag!

I am definitely going to make a few of these bags! They would be great for gifts too! :)

Talk to you soon,

Exposed Lace Zipper Pouch {Tutorial}

Hi there!  I hope you are all enjoying your weekend! Today I have a darling zipper pouch to show you guys! :)  

About a week ago, we got in these adorable lace zippers! I could NOT wait to use these beauties!! They are so fun, and make using zippers even easier in my opinion :)

These zippers just add a delicate touch to any zipper pouch.  They are easy to use, and come in a variety of colors! You can find the zippers we have in the shop in our notions section right HERE! 

I couldn't make just one of these lovelies, I have made four so far, and I am definitely not done! I will be making some boxed pouches next! :)

Alright, let's make one together! 


Supplies:

Step 1: Line your exterior piece with interfacing, and then sew the exterior and the interior piece together right sides together.  Sew along the two short edges, so that you will make a tube. 



Step 2: Turn right side out and press. 


Step 3: Place the zipper on the exterior side with the zipper pull up.  Pin into place and then sew the zipper tape on to one of the short sides.  (use coordinating thread so that you won't see your stitches)



Step 4: Now attach the other side of the zipper to the other short end of your fabric.  This is going to be kind of tricky.  You will want to unzip your zipper so that you can stitch this on.  The key is to go slow, and be patient.  I also found that using my zipper foot was very helpful in doing this step.





Step 5: Turn inside out, and align your zipper so that it is where you want it to be on the front.  I placed mine 2" down.  I thought that seemed like a nice spot for the zipper to be on my pouch.  Pin along the sides, and then sew the sides shut.   Make sure you open your zipper part way, otherwise you won't be able to turn right side out! :)   Trim off the excess a 1/4" from the edge, and then do a zig-zag stitch to finish your edges.




Step 7: Turn right side out!


And that's it my friends! You have an adorable zip pouch! These sew up so quickly, you'll make a dozen before you know it! :)

Well, I think I am off to make some more!  :) 

Talk to you soon,
