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.
Here's how I made a narrow (but still scrappy!) dog leash for our new puppy... It's so much fun to make your own pet accessories!
All that’s required to make this beautiful sunglasses case (or glasses case) is a few supplies and an embroidery machine with a 5x7 or larger hoop!
When I first showed you this cute little pouch last Saturday, one of you commented about it, calling it a ‘nappy pouch’ since that’s what you call baby diapers in the UK. I think that’s adorable!
So that’s what I’m naming it and I hope it doesn’t cause any confusion here in the U.S. - I’ll be sure to always be clear what it’s for, lol.
I love to have little sketchbooks or art journals handy for when inspiration strikes, so that's what I decided to make. These little journals are so pretty that I'm sure they will inspire me all by themselves. Read on for a tutorial so you can make your own.
Make a strip quilt and quilt it as you go (QAYG) so by the time the quilt top is done, the back and quilting are done too, and you are ready for binding!
Sew up a cute little bag to fit inside your purse - voila! Organized purse!
Can you guess which project won the vote?
I know, I know... you probably think that I am oblivious to the fact that it is summer because I have been posting so much about Christmas! It is much more likely that I am trying to wish away our 90 degree Florida summer weather, he he.
Here are some of the latest projects that readers have sewn up using my free sewing patterns. I hope they inspire you as much as they inspire me! I’ll link each photo to the sewing pattern or tutorial for that project.
