NEW PATTERN: The Popcorn Pouch


I've got a brand new pattern being released today, the Popcorn Pouch!

These super easy to sew bags come in 4 sizes, can lie fat or expand up to 2.5" in depth, and have seamless linings! They really are great for all sorts of things and are easy to store or travel with.

I hope you'll checkout this beginner level pattern and consider making one (or a bunch! lol). You can search for #popcornpouch on Instagram to see what myself and others have been making with the pattern :)







Sunflower Tote by Aneela Hoey

Today I'm popping in to share with you yet another pattern I recently tested for the wonderful Aneela Hoey!


This one is called the Sunflower Tote and it pairs one of Aneela's beautiful embroidery patterns with a simple but large tote bag pattern thats perfect for the market, the library, or quilt shop and so much more!


I started off by embroidering this tote with some Aurifil floss and 12 wt. threads in a range of berry shades (with a little orange thrown in). One of the embroidery designs was knew to me, but luckily Aneela includes helpful instructions and illustrations for each stitch. Everything is very easy to understand and the tote pattern itself is super simple and straight forward.

As you can see here, I've got a quilt in this tote... a TWIN SIZE quilt... and there's still room to spare! It's very roomy but also light weight and easy to fold up and store.


I'm relatively new to embroidery, I definitely would say I'm an expert but I did pick it up quickly and throughly enjoy it.  Hand stitching was something I never thought I could master!

Do you like embroidery or have you ever thought of trying it?

Thanks for reading and I hope you'll checkout Aneela's new pattern :)
