Welcome to our Show Off Saturday Linky Party! This week I decided not to show off something I've made, but something my sister Beka made instead. Isn't this bag the cutest? My boys are CRAZY about legos right now. Lego Movie Legos, Chima legos, Ninjago, whatever. So when Beka sent my son Connor this personalized Green Ninja messenger bag, he was over the top happy. In case you're not familiar with the story, this funny applique is the Lloyd character from Lego Ninjago.
Beka used Zaaberry's famous kids messenger bag tutorial and re-purposed some jeans. So clever, huh?
And check this out: she used the jeans belt loops and some of my snap clips to make a fun closure. Besides the green ninja face and his own name, that is Connor's favorite part. :)
So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
Introducing the Easy Ruffle Shrug! This pattern belongs to me, I once sold it as a .pdf pattern, but now I'm offering it to my SewCanShe readers as a free download from my Craftsy Shop.
Read on to see my girls' Easter outfits.
You know what that means, there is something new today at This Little Light.
The third Tuesday (like today), is when new journaling pages and other printable are released so members of my sewing support circle can keep on planning, journaling, and more.
I'm so excited to show you the classic quilt blocks that I've been working on for July. As soon as Blend sent me this fabric, I knew that I would make the sailboat quilt block. Isn't it perfect?
In case you are catching this blog series for the first time, we're spending a year making gorgeous quilt blocks using the classic patterns and fresh modern fabrics from Anna Griffin and Blend Fabrics! So far we've made the Dutchman's Puzzle Block, the Churn Dash Block, the Friendship Star, and the Snowball and Nine Patch blocks together!
I have been wanting to sew something like this for so long! I guess I'm just really lucky that you voted for it for our March Un-Tutorials project. I'm not sure where this style of boxy tote came from, but it sure is cute, isn't it?
Finish your Chubby Lunch Tote.
My 7 year old son Connor has been nagging me for ages to sew him something for his bike. His sister's bike came with a little zipper case to carry things in, but alas, his did not. I did not feel particularly inspired by this request for a long time so other things got in the way. Finally I realized that I needed to make his bike bag pretty quick or feelings would be hurt.
It’s always so much fun for me to scroll Instagram and see something you made with one of my patterns.
Today let’s have fun checking out all the Fat Quarter Sized Fold Up Baskets that you have been sewing up!
A sewing machine cover is an obvious place for this lovable applique...but my mind is going crazy with all kinds of other ideas of where to use it:) A T-shirt, throw pillow, hand towels...basically anywhere!
Sew a quilt top in a day with my super fast new method!
Did I mention that this is a strip quilt?
That means you’ll cut strips, sew them together, cut, sew again, and be done!
By the way, the seams will nest at every single intersection. I’m an OCD quilter and I didn’t use a single pin so that might be my favorite part, lol.
