New Beginnings . . . Week 37

Sixteen weeks to go . . . I got a jump on things and made this weeks project early.

I made an insulated lunch bag for one of my daughters. It’s a DIY that I found on the
JO-ANN Stores’ app; Click here for instructions and video tutorial by Jessica Abbott for
JO-ANN Stores.  I posted pics of the bag before and after handles were added. Enjoy!




New Beginnings . . . Week 16

Thirty-seven weeks to go . . . Where will my creativity and the Internet take me this week?!

I didn’t make it in time! I’m sixteen minutes late, but I did finish my project for week 16. I made another One Hour Basket; mine took much longer because I made a scrappy quilt as you go exterior (front and back). You will love this quick and easy project. 1 Hour Basket Tutorial

Lately, I’ve been making tote bags, purses, and even Ipad/Tablet cases; which sometimes requires you to box the corners. A nice even corner makes your bag look great. I know and use two of the methods for boxing corners, but I found a video by Deby Coles from So Sew Easy ( that shows a third method. You may have seen the third method on a market bag or a large beach bag. Anyway check out the video!
