Video: Sewing + Blogging Tips with Pellon Designers

I’m so excited to be back today sharing our second installment of the Video Chats at Craft Buds series! Last month, we chatted with bloggers Jessica, Andrea and Heather about their tips for writing sewing patterns as a business.

Today, I’m excited to introduce a chat on Sewing and Blogging Tips with my friends Sara Lawson, Kim Niedzwiecki and Erin Sampson. Through no fault of her own, Kim wasn’t able to connect with us during the video chat (we tried and tried!), but she is a super-fun and fantastic blogger, and you should definitely check out her site as well as her projects she’s designed for Pellon.

A Little Background:
I first met Sara and Kim at Quilt Market in Kansas City last spring, and I almost got to meet Erin then, too. I can tell you all now that they are fabulous, inspiring women, and I really think you’ll enjoy getting to know them!

In the 25-minute video (suggestion: go ahead and open in another window while you surf Pinterest…we won’t tell!), we chat about:

– Tips for blogging and how to connect with your readers
– Finding a balance between work/family life and your creative goals
– How you can become a Pellon projects designer
– And more!

What would you like to learn about blogging, writing patterns, etc.? If you have any questions for Sara, Erin or Kim, you can ask in the comments section!

Video: How to Write Sewing Patterns

If you heard the big announcement, you know that we’ve been working to launch the new Video Chats at Craft Buds series! We are excited to kick off the series today with a chat on How to Write Sewing Patterns with our fun and informative panel of experts.

How to write sewing patterns with an expert panel
Jessica Abbott, SewSet and Me Sew Crazy
Andrea Pannell, Go To Patterns and The Train to Crazy
Heather Valentine, The Sewing Loft

In this Craft Buds Video Chat, I interviewed Jessica, Heather and Andrea on the basics of designing sewing patterns, including:

-How to find and record inspiration
– Sewing a prototype
– Design and formatting of patterns
– Marketing and selling your patterns
– Legal issues and more!

Just a little background: I met these ladies in Salt Lake City this October while I was in town for Sewing Summit and the Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores Girl’s Night Out Blogger Get Together, organized by Jessica. It wasn’t long before I learned how each of them is a true master of their craft, writing fabulous sewing patterns for children’s wear, women’s wear, accessories and home decor.

In addition to having truly great and inspirational DIY blogs, Andrea and Jessica have each developed online communities for sewing pattern creators, which you’ll hear more about in the video. I love what these ladies are doing to help celebrate and support independent pattern makers!

Heather’s background is in pattern drafting in the fashion apparel industry, and you can watch the video to see where her patterns will appear next. She would hate for me to say this, but she’s kind of a BIG deal! I definitely learned a lot from these ladies, and I know you’ll love what they have to say.

The video chat is about 40 minutes, so feel free to turn it on and let it play while you’re in the sewing room or while browsing Pinterest in the next window. We don’t mind. 😉

If you have more questions that we didn’t cover, please leave a comment on this post, and I’ll be happy to reach out and get you an answer from one or more of our experts.

Announcing Video Chats + Giveaway!

I’m so excited to be participating in Margot Potter’s Shameless Self Promotion Blog Hop!

Not only is this a fun event to celebrate an e-book for crafty entrepreneurs, but everyone participating in the hop is taking some time out to practice that fine art of shameless self promotion. Easier said than done, because it can be a little difficult to toot your own horn. But, I’m going to give it my best shot with the tips I’ve learned from Margot’s e-Book.

Margot Potter

One of my favorite parts about the creative business is how generous other crafters are. Whether it’s the willingness to teach a new technique or let you in on their business savvy, I’m consistently impressed with the helpful attitude of creative individuals.

When I visit crafting events, conferences or trade shows, it’s such a bonus to connect with other crafters in person, and to have an actual conversation. I’m sure you agree that face-to-face is often much more rich than “speaking” with your blogging friends via comments or even instagram (although that can be great, too!). I’ve decided that I absolutely have to connect with more crafters on a regular basis, and decided that if face-to-face isn’t an option, I’d focus on the next best thing.

About The Book

Now that I’ve let that cat out of the bag and got you thinking, let’s chat about this great new book!

The Fine Art of Shameless Self Promotion is workbook geared toward creative entrepreneurs of all types, from craft bloggers to TV personalities. Author Margot Potter shares how she very smartly developed her brand, The Impatient Crafter (TM), and learned to promote herself, including her many books and the products she’s aligned herself with. Along the way, she shares sage advice about time management, dressing for success, online marketing and being your own cheerleader.

The book is filled with exercises so you can get out a pen and paper and journal your own thoughts, fears and plans on the spot. It’s an excellent way to capture your own creative journey and help reign it in. Some of my favorite quotes from the book are just chock full of wisdom:

It’s so easy to start giving away little pieces of your freedom, and before you know it, you feel like you owe everyone so much, there’s nothing left for you. It’s okay to say, ‘No.’

Who can’t relate to this advice? And then there’s the inevitable comparison game. I know from talking to many craft bloggers that they struggle, as do I, with feeling guilty when they compare themselves to other creatives who make more, blog more, and do more than they are able. Margot has an answer for that, too:

“Competition is a myth. Let it go. It’s a big one to which most people fall victim…. What if we all woke up and realized that the only person we are in competition with is us?”

Book Excerpt

The book gets very hands-on, such as this workshop in logo design. Margot asks some great, pointed questions to get you thinking about your logo, how it represents your brand, and more! Check out this free book excerpt, about your logo and branding.

Giveaway!

One lucky Craft Buds reader will get a chance to win this new e-book. To enter to win a copy (open worldwide):

DIY Acoustic Speakers For Your Mobile Phone

iPhoneSpeakers_1

Audio has become increasingly important in mobile phones. A decade ago, when smartphones were just emerging, we didn’t expect much in this area. We could play songs out loud from phones (even before smartphones, in some cases), but we never really expected quality sound. That has gradually changed over the years, to the point that we’ve come to expect decent quality audio when we play music from our phones. And the improvement hasn’t reached a ceiling yet! According to early rumors, the iPhone 8 believed to be coming this fall will be upgrading its speakers for “dual speaker stereo sound.”

That’s a promising development, and is even more meaningful when you consider the fact that we no longer rely on mobile phone audio just for music. We also count on it for other forms of entertainment. Perhaps most importantly, we need good sound whenever we stream video content from our mobile phones without headphones, and this is an increasingly popular activity. Platforms like Netflix, Hulu, HBO Go, Amazon Instant Video, and countless others all allow us to watch high quality video content from devices that fit in our palms. And it’s always best if the audio can match the video quality.

The same is increasingly true of gaming. While some games utilize only the most basic sound effects, others employ audio as a means of making experiences more immersive. Something like a poker or blackjack app can now go as far as providing live dealer feeds, so that users can actually visualize casino environments as they play. This experience is further improved through the addition of quality audio that helps to heighten this sense of reality. It’s only one example, but a good illustration of how audio content in gaming can be as important as it is in streaming content or music.

The improvement of mobile phone speakers is terrific news in relation to all these needs, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money for louder sound. You can still significantly enhance the sound of your phone with some creative DIY. This kind of solution is mostly useful for playing music, but can come in handy for video too. It even works for slower paced games like casino titles and puzzle games. The idea is to build an acoustic speaker that your phone can slot into, magnifying the sound for a truly impressive result.

Photo via Make It Love It

How is it done? There are all kinds of designs out there for homemade, acoustic mobile speakers. But somewhat surprisingly there’s actually a fairly standard design that’s emerged as the favorite, and all you need to build it are a few woodworking tools and 11 small pieces of wood.

Your first piece should be about 12″ x 6″, and about half an inch thick. Your third piece should be the same dimensions, but from the center on the top you should cut out a hole the size and shape of a little over half of your iPhone. Think of this hole like a dock, where your phone will be resting while it’s placed in the speaker. Cut out nine smaller pieces from the middle board, half an inch thick in all directions, to trace the border of your third piece, including around the hole you made for the phone. You should leave only a tiny gap at the base of that hole wherever your phone’s speaker is.

Once you’ve cut out all your wood, glue the smaller border pieces on top of the solid 12″ x 6″ board, in the exact shape of the identical board that you cut. The result should be a 12″ x 6″ base with a border protruding from it, so your phone can sit in the space you’ve allowed. Then you should take the remaining board (the one we called the third piece) and measure to the exact center of each side. There you should cut a 2″ hole on both sides. At that point you’re ready to glue this board on top of the border pieces you already attached to the 12″ baseboard – and once it dries you’re done!

You can find more detailed instructions here, but the basic project is pretty straightforward. And you’ll be stunned at how much the audio improves, whether you’re watching a movie, playing a casual mobile game, or just listening to some tunes.

Bonus Project! Hope Throw Pillow

Hope Applique Throw Pillow

I hope you enjoyed my Home Sweet Home mini quilt project for Baby Lock’s Sewlebrity Love of Sewing Challenge. I’ve decided to share a bonus project that I came up with, using the same fabrics leftover from my original quilt. The background on this is a blue feather print designed by Simple Simon & Co. for Riley Blake Designs, and I chose a mustard yellow solid for my applique.

This pillow reminded me of the famous quote by Emily Dickinson: “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul – and sings the tunes without the words – and never stops at all.” It’s a reminder to all of us that it’s okay to stop and breathe, and wait for tomorrow. Because there is always hope around the corner.

To make this project:

  1. Download a free PDF of the applique! Print out page 3.
  2. Follow the basic tutorial on how to use the Baby Lock Destiny II’s IQ designer to scan in your design. I’ve used a running stitch for my placement stitch and outline stitch, and a 1mm satin stitch for the outline, which gives it a shabby chic look. Use a thicker 2mm or 3mm satin stitch if you’d prefer to cover those raw edges.
  3. Need help stitching out your design on the Destiny II? I’ve made a video for that, too! Or, just use your favorite method to raw-edge applique the design onto your pillow front. I’ve used Steam-a-Seam double-sided fusible web.
  4. Add fusible fleece to the wrong side of your pillow front. Quilt if desired, or just leave it as is.
  5. Measure your pillow front, and create an envelope pillow back to fit using the method of your choice, or follow my envelope pillow back tutorial here.
  6. Before sewing the front and back together, add piping if desired. Here’s a great piping tutorial by Christine Haynes showing how to do just that.

I’ve left the dimensions off this project on purpose, so you can customize it to fit your desired hoop size, applique design or pillow form. Once you’ve made an applique throw pillow, you’ll be a pro and won’t need these directions the next time around!

Free Pattern for the “Home Sweet Home” Mini Quilt

Baby Lock Destiny II and Home Sweet Home mini quilt

Today I’m sharing the next video for my Sewlebrity Love of Sewing Challenge project, plus the free pattern for my “Home Sweet Home mini quilt. It’s a darling little mini quilt to hang in your living room, entryway, or even your sewing room! Because, let’s face it, most of us feel at home when we’re in front of the sewing machine.

In this video, I’ll demonstrate the full process I went through to make my own applique using the Destiny II’s IQ Designer, a feature which allows you to scan your own image into the sewing machine and sew it. Amazing, right?! If you are still considering whether or not to get the Destiny II, this may be a game changer for you!

I’ve included a free downloadable PDF of the appliques, so you can use your favorite method to applique the word home and the house outline onto the quilt, even if you don’t have an embroidery machine to do the fancy stitching for you! Below, you will find the complete project instructions:

Home and Hope Applique Sewing

Project: Home Sweet Home Mini Quilt

Materials:

  • 1/2 yard each* of 5 fabrics (I used assorted Riley Blake prints and solids)
  • Tear-away embroidery stabilizer
  • 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of double-sided fusible web for applique, like Steam-A-Seam 2
  • Free applique pattern print-out (3 pages)

* You’ll have enough extra fabric to make my Hope Throw Pillow bonus project, which I’ll share next week! A fat quarter will work for the yellow, turquoise, and gold stripe fabrics.

 

Cutting:

For applique block:

  • Cut (1) 14.25″ x 11.5″ background (or start larger for hoop, and trim down)
  • Cut applique fabric and double-sided fusible into a rectangle larger than the PDF pattern, for each the word home and the house image

For house blocks (cut 1 each in different fabrics: gold stripe, turquoise, yellow, and blue):

  • Cut (4) 7.5″ x 4″ for flying geese roof
  • Cut (4) 6″ x 5″ for house

From background (cream dot) cut:

  • (8) 4″x4″ for flying geese roof
  • (8) 1.5″ x 5″ for house blocks
  • (2) 1″ x 8.25″ for sashing between house blocks
  • (2) 2.5″ x 26.5″ for left and right borders
  • (2) 2.75″ x 18.5″ for top and bottom borders

For prairie points (gold stripe):

  • Cut 12 squares 3″ x 3″

Mini Quilt Assembly:

All seam allowances are 1/4″ unless otherwise noted.

Embroidery Hoop house

1) Hoop the stabilizer and background fabric into the 8″ x 12″ embroidery hoop. Follow along with the video for directions on using the IQ Designer to make your appliques. Remove the tear-away stabilizer and press. If you aren’t using an embroidery machine, you can use the PDF pattern to make an applique in any method of your choice. However, it won’t be nearly as fun!

Flying geese roof

2) Make the flying geese roofs. The Destiny II’s needle beam works great for this! I also fold the squares diagonally and press to mark my diagonal line before stitching.

House Blocks Tutorial

3) Add 1.5″ x 5″ sides to the house bases. Attach the roof pieces to the house blocks. Trim the blocks.

4) Add a piece of 1″ x 8.25″ sashing between the house blocks in each row. Press the seams toward the center. Then, attach the house rows to the top and bottom of the center applique block, referring to the quilt assembly diagram above.

5) Add the left and right borders.

Prairie Points

6) Make a prairie points by folding a 3″ x 3″ square in half diagonally. Press. Fold in half diagonally again and press. Space 12 prairie points evenly on the top and bottom borders, according to the quilt assembly diagram. Baste in place 1/8″ from the edge, then sew on the top and bottom borders. Press the prairie points away from the house blocks.

7) Make a quilt sandwich. Quilt as desired (I used a wide meandering design) and bind your quilt!

Sewing an Applique on the Destiny II

Home applique design

I’ve made many applique quilts in the past, but I’ve never used an embroidery machine to do so. Let me tell you, I’m in love with the Baby Lock Destiny II for machine applique and embroidery projects! Applique in particular is so versatile, especially when you realize that you can create your own designs quickly and easily on the Destiny.

Later this week, I’ll show you how to design your own applique pattern right on the Baby Lock Destiny II, using the amazing IQ Designer. But, perhaps you’ve never sewn an applique before and need a little primer. I’ve prepped a short video to show you the basic steps needed to sew a machine applique design on your embroidery machine! I hope this gets you excited to try and create some of your own applique patterns in our next lesson!

On Friday, I’ll be back with full instructions for the Home Sweet Home mini quilt. If you’re already familiar with the IQ designer and want to get a head start on making your applique, here is a free PDF pattern to print and use for this week’s projects! Print out pages 1 and 2 for the mini quilt and page 3 for the hope throw pillow project.

Delivery Day! Meet the Sewing Machine of My Dreams

Baby Lock Destiny 2

It seems like just yesterday that the Baby Lock Destiny II showed up at my doorstep, but I already can’t imagine my life without it!

I made this fun little video to show you how excited I was to open my machine and start sewing with it.

 

Here are a few of my favorite features on the machine. Really, I’m blown away every time I turn it on! It has a full-color touchscreen, like a tablet. It’s so easy to use. There are videos built into the machine giving you a tutorial on how to perform certain stitches.

The IQ Designer allows you to scan in your own designs and turn them into embroidery! For my project next week, I’m going to show how this works in a video tutorial. You’re going to be amazed.

There is a large throat space with 11.25″ to the right of the needle! For quilting large or small projects, it’s like a dream come true.

The Baby Lock Destiny II has a NeedleCam™ digital camera that allows you to see your how your project will look with the applique or other stitches on it! Just pull up the camera, and you’ll see your fabric or project pop up on your screen, placing the design wherever you want it.

There’s an awesome Sensor Pen that you can use on the touch screen to edit your designs really precisely. And, get this…you can also point the sensor pen on your project to tell the Destiny where you want to start sewing!

Baby Lock Destiny II and Home Sweet Home mini quilt

If you’d like to sew along with me this week and make the Home Sweet Home mini quilt, I’m including a supplies list below. I hope you’ll join in the fun! The full pattern is coming later this week.

Home Sweet Home Mini Quilt

Supplies List:

  • 1/2 yard each of 5 fabrics for quilt front (I used assorted Riley Blake print and solid quilting cottons)
  • 1/4 yard of binding fabric
  • 5/8 yard backing fabric
  • Tear-away machine embroidery stabilizer larger than your 8″ x 12″ hoop
  • Double-sided fusible web for applique, like Steam-A-Seam 2
  • I used the Destiny II and the included 8″ x 12″ embroidery hoop

Note: You’ll have enough extra fabric to make my Hope Throw Pillow bonus project, which I’ll share on Friday! If you only have fat quarters, you can probably get by with

Baby Lock Destiny II sewing machine

Today, I have something amazing to share! My new sewing machine. It’s the Baby Lock Destiny II embroidery machine, and it does absolutely everything a sewing machine should do, and more!

  • Sewing
  • Quilting
  • Embroidery (that means machine applique, too!)

 

Sewlebrity Love of Sewing Challenge

I’m taking part in the Sewlebrity Love of Sewing Challenge, and that means I’ll be back next week with a free mini quilt pattern that was inspired by my love of sewing. One of the things I enjoy most about being a creator is the chance to teach others how to learn new techniques and make their own projects. This project will show you how to make your own applique with an embroidery machine, as well as piecing patchwork blocks and making prairie points.

My project is called “Home Sweet Home,” and I can’t wait to share it with you. Here’s a sneak peek!

Sewing Easy Patchwork Bags + Baskets

Today, I’m excited to share a project I made from a brand new Craftsy class called Colorful Patchwork Bags & Baskets! It’s a sturdy patchwork basket that can be used to hold a variety of things, and I think I’ve decided I’m claiming it for my sewing room. :)

Patchwork Basket - Craftsy review

Colorful Patchwork Bags & Baskets (affiliate link) is a taught by Craftsy instructor Caroline Fairbanks-Critchfield, who you know from her popular website and newsletter, Sew Can She. I had the chance to meet Caroline a few years ago at QuiltCon, and she is totally awesome. She’s smart and creative, and very passionate about teaching quick and easy projects that you can make for yourself, as well as sharing the creative work of others.

Patchwork Basket - Craftsy review

The class itself focuses on three types of projects, all made using Caroline’s secret weapon: gridded fusible interfacing. By fusing patchwork squares of any size (seriously… 2″ to 10″ squares… whatever is in your stash!), you can make patchwork panels and turn them into a 1) basket, 2) tote bag or 3) zipper pouch. My first project was the basket, but I’m going to have to try the cute tote bag next!

Patchwork Basket - Craftsy review

Aside from the gridded fusible interfacing, I used a square of Peltex sturdy sew-in interfacing on the bottom and Pellon Thermolam fusible interfacing on all sides. Instead of making fabric handles, I substituted my own canvas and leather handles salvaged from a thrifted tote.

Patchwork Basket - Craftsy review

The basket has these really cute corners which fold out and then over on two of the sides, giving you a peel of 9-10 different fabrics at once, so you can really have fun with your patchwork! Use all of your scraps… mix it up. I had fun picking out some of my favorite fabrics, like Essex linen and those Cotton + Steel apples, and mixing them with my go-to scraps and some neutrals I had on hand. Oh… the bottom is patchwork, too!

Craftsy Colorful Patchwork Bags + Baskets

 

Want to learn more? Head over and check out the video to learn a little more about Caroline’s Craftsy class! You’ll learn a lot about interfacing, drafting a custom bag pattern, and customizing your project to any size, from a teeny tiny zipper pouch to a super large beach tote or basket!

Craftsy Colorful Patchwork Bags + Baskets

My take on the class: It’s great for beginners and perfect for someone who has time to make a small project here and there, but may not want to tackle a whole quilt. You probably have many of these materials in your stash, so what have you got to lose?!

Congrats to Caroline on this new class. I hope you get to check it out! Caroline has provided a special link so you can get the class for 50% off, and best of all, this deal never expires!

Check out the rest of the projects in the blog hop here!
