Pink Frill Yarn Container

Pink Frill Yarn Container!

I promised to be stitchin up a storm with my eBosser this week and feel I have lived up to my word. One of my favorite things is sewing and I love making different things .  I don’t always sew traditional items. This week I decided to try out my new Accuquilt GO! Rag Square-5 1/4". I love my Rag Quilt die so much!


I used a sandwich consisting of a “D” plate on the bottom and an “A” plate on top.  I placed eight layers of quilting weight cotton on the die and very quickly had sixteen pieces.  I only needed 14 sections and I have a top fashion fabric and a bottom liner in pink solid.  So I will save the other two for a later project! I love how fast I was at the sewing machine. The eBosser is wonderful for those Go! Baby sized dies!


I was so impressed with be able to cut my project out in less than 15 minutes. Then  I could get to the important part putting my project together.


So much fun using my vintage machines. It is funny that I used the state of the art Ebosser to make my time with my old girl so much fun!



Now I have a cute “bag container” for my magazines, yarn or other items. I love the frills and it makes organizing fun.

Have a great weekend and remember comment below and let me know what your eBosser is up to!

Heart Shaped Box

Heart Shaped Box

I a so very lucky to have both of my machines. I used my eCraft on this one. I love SVGcuts their files are easy to use in my eCraft software. I used their “For My Valentine” SVG kit. There is a simple heart box with cut out in the set and that is what I chose to make.


I decided to go a step further and add petals to the box sides. I used 3L Adhesive Crafty Power tape to attach them. I love the way that they look.


I used some silver colored wire to lattice the top of my box and some great trim. I really feel that this will be a great one of a kind Valentine’s Day Gift.


I am having so much fun with this Valentine’s Day. I wonder what else I can come up with. I need a sweet gift for a sweet person. Well maybe next week’s project will be right for him..

See you next week,
