Ric Rac made this tutorial for a little tape measure pouch to carry her sharp scissors in to class. This is one very talented lady. She has several tutorials on her site and freely admits to an obsession with fabric selvages. In an earlier post I gave you her link to make a selvage quilt. Her other tutorials include a bucket bag…very cute. You can find it here. Finally, here are instructions to make her one hour bag.

Carla’s Feathered Fibers has a tutorial on how to create ‘inchies’. Inchies are one inch quilts that are fast and fun to make. What can you do with these? Lots of things. You can frame them as a set and hang them on your wall, you can use them to embellish a quilt or other project, or add an eyelet and make your own necklace or bracelet. You can take part in a swap or a challenge where a coordinator will give details such as size, color, theme, etc. This is a basic tutorial, but Carla encourages you to expand as you learn, especially when it’s time to embellish your inchies. If you find the one inch size too intimidating then try making double inches (two inches) or inchies plus (one and a half inches). Carla has several other tutorials that you can find here.

Until next time!
