It’s Just Sewing is a video based blog with tutorials dedicated to the beginner! We were talking the other day about how there are a ton of sewing blogs, but not many about the basics for the beginner. And that is why she started her blog. Be sure to check it out for some really fun projects!

GiveawayDay-Bundle1-ImFeelinCrafty

I don’t think we’ve ever done a holiday bundle! I was feeling the holiday spirit when I went to pick out fabric and this is an awesome bundle with a combo of modern holiday fabrics and solids! Oh, never mind, maybe I won’t do the giveaway and keep it for myself! Just kidding! It’s for one of you!

GiveawayDay-Bundle2-ImFeelinCrafty

 This giveaway is a fat quarter bundle of seven different fabrics!

The snowflakes are a mix of Folk Art Holiday prints by Gina Martin
And the solids are from American Made Brand Solids

A Ghostly Pillow and a Giveaway!

I’m so excited about 2 things! One, I made a new Halloween pillow! And two, I got to review a fantastic pillow from Pillowcubes!

PillowCube-MainGhost-ImFeelinCrafty

First, What do you think about the ghost? Like I’ve said, I love Halloween. Last year it was bats…This year ghosts… I’m going to tell more about the quilt block this weekend, so stay tuned!

PillowCube-Pillow-ImFeelinCrafty

And now… I’m so spoiled! When I usually buy pillow inserts they are not fancy from a big box store that I won’t name… But I don’t know if I can go back! The pillow that Pillowcubes sent me is the 90/10 Down Feather pillow and it’s AMAZING! So different from those others that I usually get! It’s just soft and cuddly. Perfectly made. And it looks perfect in my pillowcase!

PillowCube-HandMade-ImFeelinCrafty

I recently posted about the American Made Brand and how it’s made in the USA. Well, so are Pillowcubes. They are made by real hands right here in the US in Tennessee! So cool!

PillowCube-Pillow2-ImFeelinCrafty

When I first started talking to Pillowcubes, they only shipped by the case. I don’t know about you, but I don’t typically make that many pillows at once. But the super cool thing is that now you don’t have to buy by the case! You can order just one if you want just one! And I recently priced it out to those other big box stores and to order the same pillow online was a couple of dollars less then buying at the store. And to be buying handmade from a real person…. Can you guess where my next pillow form is coming from?

PillowCube-HandChop-ImFeelinCrafty

I always see design shows where they hand chop the pillows. You know what I’m talking about right? With the hand chop? Most of mine don’t really take the hand chop well. But this one does! Oh, yeah!

PillowCube-Last-ImFeelinCrafty

Now the fun stuff! You can enter to win your very own pillow from Pillowcubes and feel as spoiled as I do! (the giveaway is for the pillow only, not the pillow cover!) And you can order your own pillows right now with the coupon code FeelinCrafty10 to receive 10% off your purchase! Oh, yeah! That’s for everyone!

And if you missed the No Sew Lap Desk Tutorial, check it out here!

No Sew Lap Desk Tutorial with a Speed Sew Giveaway!

When we go most places the kiddo leaves with a handful of legos…. Then he drops the legos in the car…

NoSewLapDesk-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

So I wanted to make him a lap desk to hold those legos so they don’t end up all over the car! And that’s what we did!

NoSewLapDesk-Playing3-ImFeelinCrafty

I kept looking for a fun lap desk with sides, but I couldn’t find any since they are mostly made for laptops. Then I was wandering through Goodwill one day and noticed a tray! Oh, yeah! It hit me, I can make it myself. Hello? WHy hadn’t I thought of this before???

NoSewLapDesk-Materials-ImFeelinCrafty

Want to make one? It’s super easy! Of course, I got the tray at our local Goodwill. You’ll also need poly fill microbeads, cardboard or foam core, fabric, speed sew, hot glue and some trace paper.

NoSewLapDesk-Step1-ImFeelinCrafty

First, you’ll want to trace the outline of your tray and then cut it out of your cardboard or foam core. I used the foam core just becuase it’s what I had closest to me!

NoSewLapDesk-Step2-ImFeelinCrafty

Cut your fabric. I cut mine about 3 1/2 inches larger than my foam core on each side. In hindsight, I’d probably go a bit thinner, maybe 2 1/2 inches.

NoSewLapDesk-Step3-ImFeelinCrafty

NoSewLapDesk-Step3a-ImFeelinCrafty

Next, pull up the corners so that you have a triangle of fabric like in the picture above. Pin along the long side of the triangle. Do it for each corner.

NoSewLapDesk-SpeedSew-ImFeelinCrafty

And in comes Speed Sew! Have you used this stuff? It’s little blurb is, Don’t sew it, Speed Sew it!’ You put this glue on the fabric, hold it for a minute and it’s like it’s been sewn together! I love it! I’m trying to figure out how to make a no sew quilt for those readers out there that want to make a quilt but don’t sew! Not sure if I’ll be able to do it, but I’m working on it!

NoSewLapDesk-Step4a-ImFeelinCrafty

NoSewLapDesk-Step4-ImFeelinCrafty

Unpin your triangles and glue along the line between the two right sides. Put the glue on a piece of paper or cardboard and use some sort of spreader to apply the glue. I didn’t have great luck with getting the glue where I wanted it when I applied directly to the fabric. Other people might be better at this than I am, but until you know, stick with a spreader!

Don’t cut the rest of the triangles!

NoSewLapDesk-Step5-ImFeelinCrafty

NoSewLapDesk-Step5a-ImFeelinCrafty

NoSewLapDesk-Step5b-ImFeelinCrafty

Center the cardboard back in the middle of the fabric. We’re gluing the fabric to the cardboard. Start with the corners and gather around. Then do 3 sides. Not all four! Just three! Then go around and make sure you have a nice border of hot glue all around.

NoSewLapDesk-Step6-ImFeelinCrafty

Use a funnel to fill the lap desk with the micro-beads. This can get messy! They kinda fly around…. So SLOWLY fill the funnel. I tried to speed it up and pour directly into the lap desk. But it made a mess! So I recommend the funnel!

NoSewLapDesk-Step7-ImFeelinCrafty

Once the lap desk is filled, hot glue that side closed too! Then push on the lap desk and if you have any holes, micr-beads will start flying! Fill in the gaps if needed!

NoSewLapDesk-Step8-ImFeelinCrafty

Lastly, hot glue the lap desk to the tray! i had to work fast, before the hot glue dried!

NoSewLapDesk-Playing2-ImFeelinCrafty

NoSewLapDesk-Playing1-ImFeelinCrafty

Then give it a test drive! The kiddo was very pleased with it and it ready to take it out on the open road!

NoSewLapDesk-Last-ImFeelinCrafty

What do you think? Would your kiddos like one? I bet they would!! I want one for when I’m crafting in the car on road trips! hmmmm… I might have to make another one!

NoSewLapDesk-SpeedSew-ImFeelinCrafty

And now for the giveaway! 2 tubes of Speed Sew! It dries in minutes, doesn’t wash out and can be used for crafts and fabric repairs. I bet it would be a great way to hem things if you don’t want to sew it! I just thought about that!

When you check out their website, you’ll see a bunch of red icons. Click on these for some silly tutorials with Owen Clark and Josh Rimer.

And their FB page has tons of links to other tutorials! I just had even more ideas!!
