Make the most of your outdoor living opportunities with a super tote designed for the ultimate summer excursion: the picnic! You simply cannot let the season slip away without at least one day of dining al fresco! We've had several requests for picnic carryalls and think this is one everyone will love. It's lightly insulated with thermal batting to help keep your food warm or cold. There are plenty of interior pockets, in a variety of sizes, all in easy-care PUL. And the inset zipper across the top provides a secure closure so even if the tote tips, your picnic doesn't spill.
Handy. Who doesn't want or need things to be handy? Have you ever heard anyone say, "No thanks, I'd prefer everything be just out of reach" ?! There are so many devices these days for our entertainment, it can be a challenge to keep them all corralled. It's hard to relax if you spend all your time popping up and down to fetch a remote, phone, tablet or book. This sofa arm caddy is designed to hold the items you need close at hand. Use the caddy's five pockets to organize what you want and keep it all where you want. Thanks to the beautiful fabric by Hawthorne Threads, our caddy is both functional and fabulous!
This is our second brush caddy design, the first one having held a firm place on our Most Popular list for several years. To change things up, we added a zippered pocket on the inside, allowing you to keep small tools, like tweezers or sharpeners as handy as all your brushes. Or, tuck in pocket-sized cosmetics or perfumes. A secure compartment is particularly great for traveling.
This jaunty brief-style bag actually falls into the "satchel" category, which makes it seem even more vintage and unique. Satchels sound as if they should be carried through the English countryside by a group of clever school chums, possibly on their way to Hogwarts! We took the sophisticated styling of an adult carryall and scaled it down to kid-size. Feeling like kids have all the fun? Want your very own mini-satchel? Simply lengthen the strap and you're good to go.
As more and more stores up their recycling commitment (some entire cities have banned plastic bags), it's becoming pretty common to have to bring your own shopping bags. Fabric bags are the go-to alternative and widely available, particularly the heavier, structured bags. Lightweight, flexible bags that would best replace plastic can be harder to come by. Luckily, you're a clever sewing person and can make your own... with a little help from your friends at Sew4Home.
It's true... the "fanny pack" is back. It's showing up alongside other flashback fashions from the seventies and eighties at Forever 21, Old Navy, and H&M. Of course, we felt a slightly new spin was in order for this favorite on-the-go storage solution. Our Mini Waist Pack version has been jazzed up with cool colors and a contrasting zipper, and it's slimmed down for a sleek look and feel. We offer a pattern download so you can get the perfect bottom curve.
It's a fabulous fifties flashback with a modern twist. Our Diner Bucket Bag is retro cool but with current features that make it easier to construct and stylish to carry - even without the perfect sweater set and pearls. This bag has a great structured shape thanks to a brand new product by Pellon: Flex-Foam™. We're excited to be able to showcase this cool, new product, which is a "just right" sew-in stabilizer consisting of a layer of foam sandwiched between two layers of soft fabric.
We originally designed this clever little storage solution for the frequent travelers out there. It's perfect to slip onto a hotel hanger, fill with your valuables, then cover up with a hanging garment. But it works equally well in your own closet. It's also a great way - when you're traveling or even just when planning your daily work wardrobe - to collect all the accessories that go with a particular outfit. Put lingerie, jewelry, scarves and belts into the zippered and slip-in pockets, then hang up the outfit itself over the Safe. Everything you need for that day's outfit in one handy place! Even with double zippers, clever pockets, ribbon ties and more, our Hanger Safe is surprisingly easy to make.
This year's most popular color for summer fun seems be to Aqua! We're on board with that. We found a beautiful cotton/linen blend canvas in aqua with striking metallic copper accents and paired it with natural canvas duck. It's a super stylish combo for our on-the-go beach tote. Rope handles add a nautical touch and make it easy to open wide so you can load up plenty of towels and other important beach gear. Don't forget the sunscreen.
So nice, we made them twice. Not just as two sample options, but as two coordinated pouches designed to clip together. Take one or take both. Turn them into a mini shoulder bag or ditch the strap and toss one or both into a larger tote. Stash money and cards in one, make-up and extra necessities in the other. So many options – it's the ultimate in mini-pouch flexibility. They're precisely matched in size and shape so they clip together perfectly. All this, and as a ScrapBusters project, you can make a set from the great fabrics lurking in your scrap bin.
