Quilt Fabric Car Diddy Bag

My 18 year old daughter, who is currently attending college and working 2 part time jobs,  set her goals to buy her very own VW Beetle.  After about a year of saving and searching, she found a 2000 VW Beetle in bright yellow that was in good working order and in her price range.  She is so proud of this purchase and I couldn’t be prouder of her for creating a goal and achieving it.

car2

There are a few minor things that need to be addressed, but nothing that presents a safety hazard.  In addition, she wants to “trick it out” with the VW daisy accessories, such as light covers, seat covers, wheels, etc.  She has even named the car Daisy.

vw2

As her proud mother, who is also a quilter, I wanted to make something for her car.  But what could I possibly make for an 18 year old, that would be appreciated and not looked at as “dorky”?  I started thinking and looking for ideas and I happened upon a free tutorial online for a Car Diddy Bag by Sew Can She and I knew that’s what I had to make!

Luckily, I had the perfect fabric in several color choices and used all of them.

Bright Daisy Yellow     Bright Daisy Green     Bright Daisy Pink

I made a few modifications along the way to suit my project, like adding an embroidery to the front pocket, but the directions and pictures couldn’t be any clearer.

I had never attempted a zippered pocket in a bag previously and when I reached that part, I just decided to jump right in and figure it out.  What I figured out is that it’s not really that scary or difficult, and I love the idea of a zippered pocket!  I think all my totes going forward will have a zippered pocket.

car6

My daughter is going to love the zippered pocket as well, once she opens it and finds the $20 I put in there in case of emergencies!

I put a small hand sanitizer in one of the front pockets and a matching tissue holder in the other.  Click here for our FREE tutorial for the tissue holder.

My daughter loves her Car Diddy Bag and I’m so glad she doesn’t think it’s dorky!

Dear Doggie Delight Fabric Quilt

This quilt features the Dear Doggie Delight panel from Loralie Designs.  I fell in love with this panel as soon as I saw it.  It reminds me of the song lyrics – How much is that doggie in the window?  These dear doggies are anxiously waiting by the window.

doggie1

We love the Dear Doggie Delight coordinates, Doggie Dots and Dinky Dots, just as much as we love the panel!  This quilt is made from a panel, strips, squares and half square triangles.  This went together very quickly and here’s how we did it.

doggie3     doggie5     doggie2

Finished size:  38-1/2” x 56”

Fabric Requirements:

Dear Doggie Delight Panel – 1 EA – Trim to 21-1/2” W x 42” L

Dear Doggie Delight Silver Dinky Dots – 1/4 Yard – Cut 2 strips 3” x 42”

Dear Doggie Delight Tan Dinky Dots – 1/8 Yard – Cut 2 strips 1-1/2” x 42”

Dear Doggie Delight Doggie Dots Black – 1/2 Yard – Cut ten 8” squares

Dear Doggie Delight Doggie Dots Bone – 1/2 Yard – Cut ten 8” squares

Dear Doggie Delight Tossed Doggies Bone – 1/4 Yard – Cut four 7-1/2” squares

All seams are 1/4″.

ADDING STRIPS SETS TO THE SIDES

Sew one silver Dinky Dots strip to one Tan Dinky Dots strip.  Attach to one side of the panel.  Repeat for the other Dinky Dots strips and attach to the opposite side of the panel. Set Aside.

doggie1

MAKING THE HALF SQUARE TRIANGLES

On the wrong side of the Doggie Dots Bone squares, draw a line diagonally from one corner to the opposite corner.

doggie2

Place one Doggie Dots Bone square right sides together with a Doggie Dots Black square.  With the lighter fabric on top so you can see the line you drew, stitch 1/4″ on either side of the line.

doggie3

Cut on the line, then press your squares open.  Each 8” square will give you 2 half square triangles.  Measure and trim as needed so these half square triangles are 7-1/2” square.  Repeat for all ten 8” squares of the Doggie Dots fabric.

doggie4

CONSTRUCT THE QUILT TOP

Layout your half square triangles as shown.  Sew 6 half square triangles together for the side.  Attach to one side.  Repeat for the other side.

doggie5  This picture shows 4 half square triangles sewn together.  For the sides add 2 more HST’s for each side.

Sew four half square triangles together for the top of the quilt.  Add one of the Tossed Doggies 7-1/2” squares to both ends of your row of 4 half square triangles.  Repeat for the bottom.  Attach one row to the top and one row to the bottom.

Quilt as desired, bind and enjoy!

Bowl Bonnet Love

Our Bowl Bonnet was inspired after using and throwing away paper towels every time we put something in the microwave.  My thought was that cotton fabric breathes, so why not make a re-useable bowl cover.  We made this Bowl Bonnet reversible and also with a cute ruffle.  The ruffle is useful as something to grab onto to pull the bonnet off the bowl to avoid steam burns.

We used a 6” diameter bowl, but you can modify the sizes below based on your custom bowl size.

12-1/2” square of Orange Polka Dot Fabric

12-1/2″ square of Black Polka Dot Fabric

1/2″ elastic circumference of bowl minus 1” (measure around the outside of the bowl, then subtract 1”)

hbb1

Place bowl face down and trace on the wrong side of one of the fabrics.  Add 3” all the way around the circle.  To do that, keep measuring and making marks 3” from the traced line.  If you make enough marks, you will be able to connect them to make another outer circle.

hbb2

With RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER, pin the 2 squares of fabric, then cut on the outer line.  With a 1/4″ seam, sew around the edge leaving a 2” opening.

hbb3

Turn the circle so right sides are facing out.  Smooth around the edges and press.  Do not stitch the opening closed yet.

Using the same technique as above to mark the outer circle, by taking multiple measurements and making a mark, then connecting the marks, mark a casing for the elastic at 1-1/2” from the edge and then another mark at 2-1/4” from the edge.  Hint:  Use a heat erasable pen, like Frixion, so you can iron these markings completely away later.

hbb4

Stitch on both of these lines leaving a 1” opening on the line closest to the edge making sure this opening is lined up with the 2” opening at the edge.  This is where we are going to insert the elastic.

Using a safety pin, feed elastic all the way through.  Stitch the ends of the elastic together with 1/4″ seam.  Stitch the casing opening closed.

hbb5

Press the raw edges of the first opening inside 1/4″ then topstitch 1/8” around the bowl cover, or if you prefer hand stitch opening closed.

hbb6

IT’S REVERSIBLE!  WE LOVE THE RUFFLED EDGE!

hbb7

The Bowl Bonnet is also perfect for covering food prior to serving.  Since cotton breathes, this is not an airtight seal on your bowl.  If you need an airtight seal, we suggest using your favorite plastic wrap under your fabric bowl bonnet.  Also makes a lovely hostess gift to present with your favorite goodie!  This one will be used to cover our Halloween treats while we wait for our trick or treaters!

This is also a great project for novelty prints such as Italian Vineyards by Elizabeth’s Studos or Maine Attraction by Benartex.

Plastic Bag Dispenser made from Quilt Fabric

Depending on where you live in the country, your area stores may or may not allow plastic shopping bags to be handed out when shopping.  The trend is going away from plastic shopping bags and instead having the consumer bring re-useable bags to hold purchases.

We embrace this practice for the positive effect elimination of plastic bags has on our environment.  However, in our area, plastic bags are still provided by the retailer.  This blog post is to inspire recycling the plastic shopping bags rather than just throwing them in the trash.  But what do you do with them until you are able to re-use them?  They can get quite messy if they are stored loose, so this project is for a plastic bag dispenser to keep all your plastic shopping bags neatly stowed until they are needed.  Stay tuned for a future blog post to make a re-useable fabric grocery shopping bag.

bags

One of the great re-uses for a plastic shopping bag is for bagging pet waste.  We used Puppy Paws Black from the Dear Doggie Delight collection by Loralie Designs for our plastic bag dispenser.

puppy paws black     doggie6

Fabric Requirements

Puppy Paws Black 14″ x 20″

1/2″ elastic 8″ – 2 Each

Optional hanging loop 1-1/2″ x 12″ (trim length later to suit your needs)

On the two short ends, fold over 1/4″ and press.  To create the casing for the elastic, fold over one short end 1″ and press.  Stitch close to the first folded edge which leaves a small casing for the elastic.  Repeat for the other short side.

Dispenser6

Dispenser5

Using a safety pin on one end of one piece of elastic, feed the elastic through one casing.  Once the elastic is all the way through, clip both elastic ends together.  Repeat with the other piece of elastic through the casing on the opposite end.

Fold the fabric lengthwise right sides together, pin and make sure to keep elastic at ends even with end of fabric.  Stitch along this edge using a 1/4″ seam making sure to capture the elastic.  It’s a good idea to back stitch at both ends.

Dispenser8

If you wish to add an optional hanging loop, take your 1-1/2″ x 12″ fabric to your iron, fold in half lengthwise and press.  Open the fabric and fold so one raw edge lines up with the pressed line in the center and press.  Do the same for the other raw edge.  With both raw edges in the center, fold this in half lengthwise and press.  Stitch along the length with 1/2″ seam.

Dispenser1

Dispenser2

Dispenser3

If you prefer not to have the optional hanging loop, zig zag the seam allowance to reduce the amount of pesky unravelling threads from use.  If you want the optional hanging loop – skip to the next section.

OPTIONAL HANGING LOOP

Fold this piece in half, decide if that length works for you or trim as desired and clip in place on the seam allowance of one edge of your plastic bag dispenser, with the loop sticking up out of the bag dispenser.  Zig zag into place going back and forth a couple times, then continue zig zagging along the seam allowance.  This will help reduce the amount of pesky unraveling threads from use.

Dispenser10

Fill with your bags and hang for easy dispensing.  Fill from the top and pull them out from the bottom.
