Altered Book Halloween Mini-DCWV

Welcome DCWV fans! It’s Jenifer from the DCWV Social Media Design Team!  Halloween is right around the corner and with the new Halloween Stacks I went to work creating this super cute altered book mini album.  This mini has tons of pockets and tags, ribbons, strings and charms.
The Halloween stack has beautiful copper foiling and it can be hard to get a good picture of it.  I layered the spiderweb paper with some tulle and string and a beautiful Blue Moon Bead Spider.  I love how the cover turned out.

Here are a few of the inside pages, as you can see there are tons of tags and pockets for journaling and pictures.  I love how interactive and fun this mini is, my little ones had a great time going through all of the little pockets and compartments

Blend Quilt and Pillow-TOW

Hi there this is Jenifer here with you today to share this Christmas quilt and pillow that I made using the I love Christmas fabric from Blend.  I am so excited to be getting started with my Christmas decorating early and this quilt is the perfect touch.
The quilt is a free pattern from AGF called Palisades and it is perfect to show off these beautiful fabrics.

As you can see I used one of the beautiful reindeer's from the panel fabrics, he was just too cute to not showcase.  

For my pillow I used the Santa from the big panel and a section from the smaller panel from the back to tie everything in.  This pillow is large measuring 24"x 24" I didn't have a pillow form in my stash this size so of course I decided to make my own with supplies I had on hand.

Step 1: cut a piece of StitchNSew Pattern material and StitchNSew Sew in Fleece in your desired size + 1", to cover your 1/2" seam allowances.  I cut mine at 25"x 25".
Step 2: layer the fleece and pattern material on top of each other and sew, leaving a 5" opening on one side.
Step 3: Turn your pillow form right side out and stuff with stuffing.  I used 3/4 of a large bag of stuffing to fill my pillow form.  Once stuffed then sew opening. 
Step 4:  Enjoy your new pillow form and enjoy making your own in any size you may need.

Fall Floral Wreath-DCWV

Welcome DCWV fans! It’s Jenifer from the DCWV Social Media Design Team!  Have you see these new Lia Griffith/DCWV stack "Fall Paper Flowers" that DCWV have recently come out with?  They are beautiful!!  I don't even have the words to tell you how absolutely beautiful these flowers are. 

I have chosen to use my flowers in making a fall wreath for my front door.  These beautiful flowers come together pretty quickly.  All you have to do is punch out the shapes and then using scissors or a tool you shape your flowers, this can be done while watching TV.

A little bit of hot glue and your flowers are ready to go.  Just imagine everything that can be done with these lovely beauties.

This stack is a definite must have and I just hope that the partnership continues and we see a winter, spring and summer stack from this match made in heaven.

Supplies used :
hot glue
floral wire

Pretty as a Peacock Pencil Pouch-TOW

Hi there this is Jenifer here with you today to share this little back to school pencil pouch.  This is a simple project that can be customized to fit the personality of each individual.  Lets get started.

Other Supplies used:
Ribbon-May Arts
Oliso Iron

Step 1: Apply the Deco Foil Liquid Adhesive using a scraping tool or even a used gift card and scraping it over the stencil making sure you get into all of the little nooks and crevices.

Step 2:The adhesive will be pretty shiny, wait for it to dry clear and then you can apply the foil.  I like to use a brayer and another used credit card to really make sure I get the foil into all of the little spaces.

Step 3: Print out the desired image using the EZ print Inkjet sheets cut around the image and Iron it onto the fabric following the directions on the package.

Step 4:  Sew up the pouch.  Sew the zipper along the top and then sew the sides together. 

This project comes together fairly quickly and you will be sending happy kids off to school with their very own custom made pencil pouch.

Bathing Suit bag-TOW

Hi there this is Jenifer here with you today to share this little wet bag to put your bathing suit in so that everything else in your bag doesn't get wet.

Have you ever been on a trip or at the water park or whatever and you change out of your wet suit and don't know where to put it without getting all of your dry items wet.  Well here is a fun little zip up bag that will keep your wets and drys separated.

These are the supplies you need.  I used just some scraps from a project that I had already completed and it worked out perfectly.  I cut out 2 pieces of fabric each measuring 10"x 20".

Step 1:  Cut out the letters you want to use in the Hot Melt Adhesive.  Iron it down onto the front of your bag.  I don't have a fancy machine so I trace around a font that I printed out in word.   While this is cooling go to step 2.

Step 2:  Following the directions apply the Iron-on Vinyl to the other piece of fabric.  This will be the inside of the bag.

Here are the 2 fabric pieces.  The one on the bottom has the Vinyl and the top piece has the Foiled lettering.

Step 3:  Sew the zipper along the top of the "sun" piece and sew along the bottom and the side using a 1/4" seam allowance.  Sew the bottom and the side of the Vinyl piece using a 1/2" seam allowance.  The larger seam allowance will help the bag keep its shape when you put the 2 pieces together.  With wrong sides together insert the vinyl piece inside the "sun " piece and stitch along the top, making sure you leave enough room so that the zipper will close.

For a little extra you can use a scrap of ribbon as a zipper pull and another scrap piece of ribbon along the side so you can hang it on a hook :)
