Sweet December

I’ve been a bit MIA lately trying to finish up this semester of school & interning. Now that school is finished for the holidays I can finally get back to my lonely sewing machine.

This weekend I had a chance to hang out with the family & relax a bit. I took 3 history classes this past 8 weeks and whew! It was a bit of an over load for someone who doesn’t typically focus on that subject. I do have to say that I had some fun professors & learned a lot! And after my Latin American studies class, I am wanting to go venture around some of those countries.

Fall is in full swing here & Bella is loving the leaves blowing around. She can’t get enough of chasing them all over the place!

Fall Love
On Wednesday, I had a chance to sew a random project, other than for tutorials or bees. I’ve been trying to be very good about focusing on my studies instead of spending all my time at my machine the past few weeks so it felt really good to whip up these two stockings for my mom & her co-worker’s office. Not to mention, I always love start & finish in a few hour projects!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! #christmas #stockings #handmade #bluprinttextiles #chevrons
I found those cute green & red chevron prints at Hobby Lobby. They are a light weight home dec & sewed up perfectly for the stockings! I kind of wanted to keep them at home!
As for the weekend, it was spent eating tasty treats, looking at amazing Christmas lights strewn in trees for miles & gorgeous decorated houses, & supervising the construction on a weekender bag! Can’t get much better!

Isn’t that weekender looking gorgeous!! Look at that Heather Ross! I kind of want to steal it from my stepmom. haha But on that note, I am about to make another weekender…for someone 😉 so I’ll be sure to get some pictures posted along the way!
How is everyone doing with their Christmas projects? Mine are slowly coming along, but right now I am still feeling confident they will be finished by Christmas! Crossing my fingers!

Fabric Gift Bag Tutorial

Week 11: Fabric Gift Bag Tutorial

What you’ll need:
-[1] piece of exterior fabric 10.5 x 25″
-[2] pieces of interior fabric 10.5 x 12.5″ each. (I used cotton duck so the bag stood up nicely)
-[2] pieces of cording 10″ long each (or however long you would like)
-[4] sets of grommets/eyelets 
Photobucket 

Photobucket

—————————————————————————————————————
Step 1:
 -Sew your two interior pieces to your exterior piece of fabric, creating one long strip, one piece of interior fabric on each end of the exterior.
 Photobucket 

-Next fold the whole piece in half, lengthwise, pretty sides together.
Photobucket

-Mark a 4-5″ space at the bottom raw edge, to keep as an opening to be able to flip the bag inside out once sewn.
Photobucket

-Sew around  all of the raw edges, back stitching & leaving a space open, where you marked.
Step 2:
-Once you’ve sewn around the raw edges of the bag, you’re ready to create your boxed corners.
-Take your first corner & pull the fabric, creating a flat point, until the seam in in the center.
-Measure aprox. 1.5″ up from the point and mark straight across, I marked with a pen first then pinned it.

Photobucket 

-Follow these same steps on all four corners.
-Sew across the line you marked for the boxed corners.
Photobucket
-Once all four corners are sewn, measure 1/4″ (closest to the point of the corners) and trim the corners away.
Photobucket
-Repeat on the remaining corners.
Step 3:
-Through the hole you left earlier, turn the bag inside out.

Photobucket
Photobucket
-Sew the hole closed.

Photobucket
-Then stuff the interior into the exterior.

Photobucket
Step 4:
– Cut your holes for your grommets/eyelets. I measured aprox. an inch down from the top and 3.5″ in from each side and marked 2 dots.
Photobucket
Photobucket
-Attach your grommets/eyelets.
-Take your two pieces of cording and create your handles by pushing them through the grommets/eyelets and tying knots on the inside of the bag.

Photobucket 

& voila!! You’re finished with your cute & reusable gift bag!!
I hope you enjoy! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact me! And be sure to check back next Tuesday for our last project for the 12 weeks of Christmas!
