Framed Fiber Art

Have you ever bought fabric that ends up sitting on a shelf because it’s just too perfect to use? Or maybe you bought it for a project, then switched gears and went with a different color scheme instead, leaving that fabric to collect dust and go out of print. This week’s tutorial is perfect for those precious pieces that we love but don’t have plans for! Follow along as Rob shows us how to embellish and machine quilt a piece of fabric to become Framed Fiber Art!! Enjoy!

Drawstring Bag Toy Playmat

I often wonder why humans have such sensitive feet! You would think they would be tough, especially since they carry us from place to place! Maybe it’s just me but when I stub my toe,  my vision is instantly blurred with watery eyes and my vocabulary is a little more bold than usual. Have you ever stepped on a lego? Oh gosh, it’s game over when that happens!! Someone might as well amputate my foot because my feet are just so sensitive!! Stepping on things is definitely a common problem in a household with kids! That’s why I am so jazzed about today’s tutorial! In this video I’ll teach you how to make a Drawstring Bag Toy Playmat! It’s an easy sewing project that will help a bunch when it comes to keeping things tidy! Because I used denim to make mine, it’s going to handle the wear and tear of the kids! My mom would sometimes say, “This is why we can’t have nice things”, after I would break something while playing and just being a kid! Well have no fear because when these bags are made with the right supplies, they are going to last a lifetime!!

Ballistic Beach Bag

ballistic beach bag blue

Let’s be honest here, a person can never have too many bags! My wife has so many that she has a bag to hold all her bags! It’s a little ridiculous but it’s okay because I love her. It’s also okay because I’m an enabler of the bag craze! Today’s tutorial is a great example of that!!

We live in California and go to the beach a lot! So this bag was a necessity for my families’ bag collection! We use this one for grocery shopping, days at the park and just about any time we have to carry things! (Except for sneaking snacks into the theatre… it doesn’t work too well for that!)

This is my son using his bag while on duty as a Junior Lifeguard!

Coming Home Quilt

There is something majestic about seeing an eagle. Whether it’s flying overhead, your favorite team’s mascot or even on a quilt, eagles are beautiful creatures. Eagles are especially beautiful if you live in the US like me! They represent freedom and the birth of our great nation!

Coming Home Quilt

This fun quilt was originally made for Quilted In Honor. Quilted In Honor (QIH), led by Island Batik, is a fund raising initiative for Operation Homefront, one of the top military fund raising organizations, and is intended to harness the collective power of the quilting industry to give back to the ones that need it most. I was so happy to work with such a great organization and help those who have protected our freedoms.
