Some Digital Card Inspiration and Something that can Travel with You


The above class started today and I’m already inspired—see!


I used Crystal Wilkerson’s You Are Awesome Mini Kit.  Clicking the above picture will take you to the exact item at

I get a lot of inspiration by visiting blogs and finding new tutorials.  Recently, I was inspired by this lined zippered make-up bag tutorial by FlossieTeacakes' blog and could not wait to try it.  I’ve done quite a few make-up bags in my little time of sewing, but this one was different—see the covered ends to the zipper—in the tutorial?  Well, I tried the tutorial, but I didn’t get it exactly right—I’m thinking my zipper was not exactly 8-inches, which was recommended in the instructions, so I will try it again.  Below is how mine turned out the first time.  Not too shabby.  Also, I put a spin on it.  I printed one of the papers from the The Queen of Quirk’s Sitting Pretty Paper Pack onto Fabric-Stick and used that for my fancy fabric in the tutorial.  I’d been keeping my eye out for a tutorial that would use that particular print.  Clicking the below picture will take you to the exact item at

TIP:  When using Fabric-Stick, I like to iron fusible fleece on the back as my interfacing—I love how the finished piece feels.  

This little bag will be going places . . . right into my purse and along for the ride.
