Sew Many Projects Caddy with Bonus Applique Embroidery

To Purchase my newest pattern, SEW MANY PROJECTS CADDY, click HERE to go to my Etsy Store.

 

As with most sewers, I am always working on multiple projects at the same time.  I get bored with one and then I begin a new one.  I try to be organized by putting everything I need for the first project in a box or bag to keep it all together but then when I want to go back to that project, I normally can’t find it without looking through all the boxes or bags I have loaded with other projects.  One day after getting frustrated searching for a particular project for what seemed like hours, I thought, if I could only see what’s in these things it would make my life easier and I wouldn’t waste so much precious time searching for what I’m looking for.  Then it hit me, PET SCREEN!  You can see through pet screen!   And so it began, the Sew Many Projects Caddy was born. 

My favorite part of the Sewing Caddy is that it has two outer zippered pockets to hold thread, scissors and sewing notions (or whatever else the project requires).  Then behind each zippered pocket is an additional pocket that is perfect to hold patterns and notes while storing the fabric or heavier materials in the main part of the bag.  Using the pet screen allows you to see exactly what project you have in the caddy and all its compartments,  while keeping  your things organized so when you’re ready to work on your project, everything you need is right there and you can identify it easily.  No more wasting time by searching through all the boxes for the project you were working on a month ago!

Don’t let the zippers scare you away from making this adorable caddy!  I understand that most of us are visual learners and I cater to that by including lots of pictures (over 25 in this pattern) to guide you step by step in making your own Sew Many Projects Caddy.  My method of installing zippers (with zipper tabs to make it look professional ) is super simple and is explained in detail with pictures to help you conquer this fear! 

In addition to the 12 page eBook, I have included my much loved Sewnopsis to save you time and money on printing.  What is a Sewnopsis?  It is a single page reference guide that has the supply list, cutting instructions and the most important steps to the pattern on ONE SHEET.  It’s handy to keep by your sewing machine to refer to when making your Caddy.   It is also a lifesaver to have with you when you go to the store to get your supplies so you don’t forget a thing and have to make the dreaded trip back to the store.

This pattern DOES INCLUDE BONUS embroidery designs.  The Sew Many Projects circle applique’ frame is included with each letter of the alphabet and then a blank applique’ frame in case you want to incorporate your own lettering.  The embroidery design fits the 4″x4″ hoop and is available in JEF, PES, HUS and EXP formats.

An adorable Mini-Screen Tote Bag made by Kimberley Gavrus

Kimberley sent me pictures of her version of my

Mini-Screen Tote Bag Pattern.

It is just adorable Kimberley!

This is what she had to say:

“Hi Michelle, I recently purchased your pattern instructions for your cute little tote. I made this tote featuring Whimsical Roses Monograms by Santi from Hatched in Africa embroidery designs.  I want to compliment you on your instructions…they are really nice…love all the pics. Also, I really liked working with the type of screening you suggested. I have never heard of it before, and a few Walmart employees had not either….LOL My husband and I wondered around the store until he spotted it in the hardware isle. This is one tote, you are seeing both sides. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to use the K or the G (for my last name)….so I decided to use both.  Thanks for creating this little cutie. Kimberley Gavrus.”

Kimberley, THANK YOU for sharing your adorable creation!

You did a fantastic job!

If you have made a project using one of my patterns, I would LOVE to see it and share it on my blog.

Please send me a picture or two to my email SewMichelle@outlook.com.

Introducing The Mini-Screen PDF Pattern

Below are some samples of my newest pattern, The Mini-Screen.   The PDF pattern is loaded with over 65 pictures to guide you step by step in making your own adorable Mini-Screen tote.  The PDF also includes a Sewnopsis.  What is a Sewnopsis?  It is a single sheet reference guide that has the most important steps of the pattern listed along with mini pictures.  It is like  a cheat sheet to keep near your sewing machine.  Genius right?  I designed this sheet to save time by not having to run to and from the computer to see what step is next.   It also includes a supply list making it super handy to take with you to the fabric store.   To purchase my pattern click here and it will open a new tab to my Etsy Store.  

This versatile tote is petite but still roomy enough to hold all your necessities and look adorable while doing it!  

What girly girl wouldn’t want to carry the turquoise Mini-Screen pictured below?

You can personalize the bag with monogramming if you choose.

It could also function as a lunch tote.

I am constantly working on new patterns and hope to have more available in the next few weeks.  

 Thanks for your support and I hope I have inspired you to want to go and sew something :>)

Screen Cosmetic Bag Tutorial

I told someone that I would get a tutorial out on using the pet screen to make this tote bag many months ago and I feel terrible that I haven’t done it yet!  It’s too complicated to go into the reasons why it is taking me so long, but I thought I would give you the screen cosmetic bag to try and make up for it…..so Tara, this one is for you :>)

You can find the instructions under the tutorial tab at the top ~ Enjoy!!

Pet Screen Lunch Tote

This is my latest creation using vinyl coated pet screen(working on a tutorial for this project).  It’s smaller than my other screen totes ~ wouldn’t it make an adorable lunch bag for a teacher?  The cute apple is from Sew Inspired by Bonnie’s fruit appliques.  I used her strawberry applique on one of my Ziploc baggie covers.  The designs are perfect for these projects and stitch out very well.
