What did you do this weekend?

I made all these cute, adorable and fun pacifier clips out of the NEW Patty Young's GRAND BAZAAR RIBBONS. The best part about these ribbons and why they are so great for pacifier clips are that they are REVERSIBLE... I love that fact...

There are 6 reversible ribbons in this collection and pacifier clips are just the beginning of what you can create with these.

Do you need one? These are available for purchase in our handmade shop HERE.

So what did you do this weekend?

Weekend beach bag

My friend found this great beach bag tutorial HERE and was able to get a hold of some great stripe canvas fabric from Ikea. I wasn't so lucky but did have some blue Japanese elephant fabric hanging around. I made me up one, a afternoon before we headed out to Hawaii. And I love it! It also looks great on the beach, huh?

My friends bags (all 3 of them) turned out so awesome! I am so loving the stripe look right now and will definitely pick some up the next time I'm at Ikea.

She couldn't decide on which fabric she loved more so she made one out of each color..

Enjoy making this awesome, spacious beach bag. Thanks to Elle Apparel for posting this tutorial.

update: go here for our latest beach bag!

Easy purple elephant nylon picnic blanket TUTORIAL

Yippee! Summer has definitely arrived for us here in Vegas. Time to break out the sunscreen, water bottles and picnic blankets.

As soon as I got in this Japanese purple elephant nylon fabric in, I knew a picnic blanket was in it's future. The great thing about this fabric is that its extra wide so it's perfect for a picnic blanket.

Here is what measurements I used, yours would change if you want it longer. Also make sure you choose a dark print for your top fabric so it won't show dirt as fast.

elephant nylon: 1 yd 42" found HERE
coordinating fabric little shorter than nylon: 1 yd 40" I used Tiny town in black found HERE
Coordinating thread
straight pins
sewing machine, scissors etc.


First thing you want to do once your fabric is cut and ready to go is on each side ( 4 sides) find the middle and mark with a pin.

Now do this again to your top fabric and set aside. Take the elephant fabric and lay on a open space with the WRONG side up.

Take your top fabric and lay on top of your elephants with the RIGHT side up, like so.

Make sure to match up your pins from both fabric sides

Once it's all lined up, start from the middle of each side and work your way around the sides bring over the nylon fabric and turning it under 1/4 inches and pin

When you get the the corners, just tuck them in like so, squaring it off.

Once all 4 sides is pined, your ready to sew. Use a open foot and just sew right next to the edge.

That's it, YOUR DONE!!!!

ready to enjoy!
