Camera Lens Wrap

DIY Camera Lens Wrap

Protect those expensive camera lenses with these cute wraps. They use old neck ties filled with polyfil quilt batting to make the ties soft. I used old silk ties found at the second hand store. The silk is so soft and the lens can be stuffed into a bag for travel and I have peace of mind that they will be protected. These would make great gifts for all the Camera Bugs in your life.

Sew a Wrist Pincushion from scrap fabric! Tutorial at

DIY Wrist Pincushion tutorial at

I love to sew things that I will actually use. This wrist pincushion not only uses up a little scrap fabric, but it’s also a necessity for any sewer. While you can buy your own wrist pincushion, there’s something so fun about having a cute print to brighten your crafting experience. These little elephants help me smile while I pin away (one of my least favorite parts of sewing, I’m too clumsy and stick myself at least once every time).

DIY Mug Cozy with Insulated Lining - Tutorial at

I always need a cup of coffee to start my day. But sometimes, I’m too busy and end up with half a mug of lukewarm coffee after forgetting to drink it. For those days, I decided to create a little something extra to keep my coffee warm enough to drink when I finally get a chance. Now, I can get distracted, and still come back to a piping hot mug of my favorite morning pick-me-up. Perfect for those busy days when you need all the caffeine you can get.

The International Quilt Market in Portland!

Crafts, Needlearts, Quilting No Comments

Last weekend, here in Portland, quilters and manufacturers from all over the country had the opportunity to meet up and share what they love. Here are some of the highlights:

Poppy Quilt

Right when we walked in to the quilt market, there were so many beautiful quilts hanging up around the booths. I absolutely loved the watercolor appearance of this quilt, with the intricate floral stitching. It’s absolutely gorgeous!


We very quickly started to notice a theme with all of the lovely quilts hanging up, lots and lots of color! There were bright neons and rainbow quilts everywhere!

Colorful Quilt

This quilt quickly caught my eye. It is so colorful and I love the pointillism effect used with the background. I also love the fact that quilts don’t necessarily have to be about piecing together blocks of fabric anymore. You can create a scene and really tell a story with them.

Once we got into the booths, we had a lot of fun trying out the Sizzix Big Shot  and AccuQuilt Go Die they make cutting your fabric so easy and precise!

Cheep Trims

A lot of the booths had more fun notions and products than imaginable. It was so fun to look through all of the ribbons and trims that Cheep Trims has to offer.

Fairfield Batting

The award for booth creativity definitely goes to Fairfield Batting. All of the decorations are made entirely from quilt batting!

 They dyed, felted, crimped, and ironed everything together to create this beautiful forest scene. It was really inspiring to see a creative way to use batting outside of quilting. Fairfield carries natural cotton batting, which they said was the easiest to dye. It’s so hard to believe those flowers are made from felted and dyed batting.

After many hours spent looking at new products, playing with new tools, and chatting with quilters, I think this photo best sums up how we felt when we left:

This decal was too cute!
