Holy Super-Sized Spooky Sweetpea!

Sunday, August 6th, 2017

Giant Sweetpea PodsJust one 18″ square of vinyl mesh and some rick rack, ribbon, a zipper and two zipper pulls made these Spooky-Sweet Treat Pods of Deliciousness.

You’ll need to use Sullivan’s Make-A-Zipper On A Roll  and cut it a few inches longer than the longest side of your triangle (see pattern for cutting instructions).  Also keep in mind– if you’re going to swap out the zipper pulls to a different color than your zipper tape–you must be sure to use the SAME BRAND and SAME SIZE pull as the tape. Test your zipper tape and pulls for compatibility BEFORE using in your project.  Not all zipper brands will work.

It’s SEW FAST and SUPER EASY to make this super-sized babies because you omit the interfacing and lining steps! For the zipper pull strings, I used thin strips of recycled bicycle tube. If you don’t have the LazyGirl Sweetpea sewing pattern yet, get it ON SALE NOW. Click here and order yours today.

Gifty Tags: Quick & Cute Gift Card Holders and Ornaments for Your Holiday Tree

Sunday, August 6th, 2017

Last year I had SO much fun whipping up these adorable Gifty Tags that I need to get busy and have a new slew of finished tags and card holders on hand:


Using mere scraps of leftover fabric, some thread, some Stiff Stuff and some buttons, I created colorful ornaments and gift card holders using the Lazy Girl Designs Gifty Card Holder sewing pattern, ON SALE NOW at SewThankful, click here to order yours.  You could use this style as a package gift tag as well. And the recipient of the gift can recycle it for future giving…it’s like a 2fer.

NOTE:  Stiff Stuff is currently sold out and unavailable from the manufacturer.  They expect to have it available again in mid-late October this year (2017).  I suggest substituting Soft & Stable until Stiff Stuff becomes available again.

December 2013 Ornament Sewing Pattern

December 2013 Ornament Sewing Pattern

This PDF file requires a RECENT version of Adobe Acrobat Reader, available for FREE at Adobe.com

I thought I had posted this pattern on our blog last year after I sent it out in our FREE eNews, but apparently not.  🙂 Holiday haze, I guess.

These are very quick and cute and make excellent use of small denim pieces!  They look great on the tree (or decorating a package) and as always, because they are fabric they don’t BREAK.   They look great embroidered, beaded and blinged out! Use your imagination to make truly customized ornaments. AND…if you’ve got colored denim scraps laying around…YES…that works beautifully too!

Here is the link to the PDF pattern/instructions.
