National Sew a Jelly Roll Day!

Pjr_keep-calmSeptember 16th is National Sew a Jelly Roll Day!
You can find more information here but I'll have a post of a pile of free jelly roll patterns here on the 16th.
So many people don't know what to do with their jelly rolls and just collect them. This will help you bust into one.
It's my favorite precut and I am excited for an excuse to use one of my hoarded ones.
You can look at #jellyrollproject on Instagram to see what people are picking so far.


No Drama Llama

I've been making some zip pouches lately with the holiday only a few months away and some other events.
This one was too cute I love that little sparkly llama.
I lined it with some pink damask fabric that I can't remember what line it's from and added a cute little tassel.

I backed it with this pretty floral another print I can't remember what line it's from.
(Hey I'm using my stash at least)

I'm going to be making a bunch of these and debating making some pieces of fabric with just the little iron on already adhered to sell on Etsy. People can make their own pouches, bags, pillows, or whatever with them. :)

I've been obsessed with heat transfer vinyl so be prepared for a lot of posts featuring that coming up.



I got some cute fabric from Fat Quarter Shop yesterday!!

Menagerie is amazing in real life. Above is a canvas print I'll be making a bag from and I also got a 10inch square pack and 2.5inch strips. The precuts are hard to find in Cotton & Steel I've come to find out but luckily can always count on FQS to carry them. :)

Here is the bright colorful side with the fun prints.

and here are the blenders with Metallic!

I'm working really hard on de-stashing and clearing out fabric from when I had a quilt shop and hopefully once the clutter is gone I'll be able to have some sew-jo again.
I'm already looking for a good pattern for these though!
