How To Make A No Sew Fabric Bookmark

I love using up fabric scraps and can never have enough bookmarks, so this fast and easy craft shows you how to make a no sew fabric bookmark! It’s hard to find ideas to use up knit fabric scraps (I have a huge list of them in this post!) but this craft perfectly uses up those weird long strips you end up with after cutting out clothes. Most craft stick ideas are for kids, but I think these would be a perfect gift for an adult. They kept my place in the embroidery book I was looking at; I think I’ll make a few more and slide them into my purse for when I’m reading on the go.

Quilted Family Grace Placemats

Sentimental sewing project - a family grace printed on fabric and used in quilted placemats. This is a sweet gift idea for anyone who has lost a loved one or has strong family dinner traditions!

Excited to share what might be one of my longest running UFOs (unfinished object) ever, a quilted family grace placemat. While I’m not religious and wasn’t raised in a religious house, my Grandpa said his grace at every meal we ate with them. He passed away when I was in college, and I knew that my Mom had his handwritten grace framed in her dining room. I asked my Aunt to help me get a copy of it, and then uploaded it to Spoonflower, printed it out, and let it sit in my sewing room for 3 years while I waffled back and forth on what to do with it.

Simple EPP Hexie Pincushion Tutorial

 

Interested in EPP (english paper piecing) but intimidated by making a whole quilt? With only 17 hexies, make a simple pincushion with this easy pincushion tutorial! This is a great first quilting project and scrap buster tutorial. The post was sponsored by Maker Mountain Fabrics, where you can find this adorable Cotton + Steel Kujira fabric!

If you’ve admired EPP (english paper piecing) projects from afar, I have a great beginner tutorial to make a simple pincushion! Maker Mountain Fabrics sponsored this post, which means she sent me the fabrics in addition to compensation for creating the tutorial. This pincushion only takes 17 hexies, and while I think calling it a one-night project might be a stretch, you can definitely do it in a weekend. EPP is done by hand, which makes it a great hobby for parents who are running after small children. Similar to embroidery, you can stop and start a million times without messing anything up or losing your place, which I love! All of these hexies were sewn with a minimum of one child hanging on my arm, and they loved playing with the placement of each design. The last EPP project I had on the blog was a while ago, but my son still uses this tote bag all the time.

I’m sharing how to make felt coasters, no sewing required, in an ode to how SnappleĀ® fits into my day. I’m not a coffee, tea, or soda drinker so I love having a Snapple Kiwi Strawberry to grab during my afternoon break and after a long morning. In the past, I’ve shared how Snapple got me through the roughest parenting day I’ve had in the past 4 years. I’m happy to share again about the current rollback price at Walmart, along with this easy felt craft tutorial!
