It’s time for the Crafty Little Things to Sew blog hop! I’m so excited to share with you a closer look at the projects in my new book! Crafty Little Things to Sew has just been released – and at the perfect time for holiday sewing. This book has you covered with sewing gifts for just about everyone on your list.
When I seriously decided to make Crafty Little Things to Sew (the book) happen, I asked a bunch of my favorite bloggers for their most clever ideas. I sorted through all the emails that I got and picked 12 amazing projects. Then I set to work designing 8 more that would round out the perfect sewing book of crafty and useful items.
So now I get to start off this blog hop by sharing the 8 sewing projects that I designed.
The Circle Zip Shopping tote folds up and tucks into it’s own (attached) zipper pocket when you’re not using it!
The Crafty Biz Apron has pockets all around – plus a hidden zipper pocket under the waistband for cash or receipts.
This Easy Wallet has a ton of pockets for cards and cash too!
Sew beautiful (and reversible) barstool cushions for your kitchen with my easy to follow instructions.
My Zip Flat Lunch Tote (probably my favorite project of all!) unzips on the sides to make a handy lunch mat. Eat anywhere!
And iron anywhere with my fold-up iron mats. They have insulated batting inside to protect your counter or table – and I share how to make 2 different sizes.
This kid sized backpack is super easy – plus it unbuttons on the sides to get just a bit bigger on the inside when needed.
An apron is the perfect gift! Use my simple pattern and 2 of your favorite fabrics to make this easy and sweet apron with pockets. I even show you how to make your own bias binding for matching trim and ties.
Sew an organizer covered with pockets that you can hang in your closet! This easy sewing project is great for organizing sewing and craft supplies, fashion accessories, bathroom necessities, gift wrappings, and more. There are pockets on both sides plus a big interior pocket so every bit of space is used. I’ll show you easy step by step instructions for sewing this organizer and putting it to use in your home. Get sew organized today.
At my daughter Chloe’s high school (can you believe my baby started high school???), the lunch lines are so long that she has been skipping lunch! She’s always starving by the time she gets home because she doesn’t want to carry a big lunch bag as well as her heavy backpack – poor girl!
I am so in love with the beautiful look of simple patchwork quilts with lots of squares. This is the perfect way to use up fabric scraps like I did, or you can make a beautifully coordinated quilt with pre-cut 2 1/2’’ square fabric pieces that come in mini-charm packs.
I’m also in love with the process. If you feel like quilt making is your escape from the world and sitting down to sew for a few hours makes your troubles fade away… this is the quilt for you!
Sew an easy beautiful apron with this free sewing pattern that only uses one yard of fabric! Whether you are sewing for yourself or for a friend, an apron always comes in handy and makes a great gift. This blog post includes a link to a free template that I digitized for you.

Sew a cute clamshell bag just the way you like it! Without anything fancy, this zipper bag is just right for holding supplies, cosmetics, or small things when you travel. But if you add exterior pockets and handles it makes a darling handbag.
I debated whether or not to blog about my beautiful turquoise painted chairs… because I didn’t sew anything on them (yet). But this was a project involving fabric and it turned out so amazing, that in the end I just have to share.
I love this sewing little things! These little pouches are so totally adorable and fun to use. Kids love having their own little portion of goodies and I love to save money by buying big packages of things instead of the ones that they put in little packages for you.
I would love to win this book
