 I love making simple totes, they are so easy and come together quickly-which let's be honest, we all like quick projects!  The best part of all is that you don't have to cut out a pattern for this, so it makes it that much easier!

 I just started getting into embroidery and needed somewhere to keep my stash of embroidery thread. It would also be a great little case to organize smaller items like buttons or scrapbooking goodies. Here are the details on how to make one of your own.

Today I’m sharing a tutorial on how to make a dance duffle bag, or as I call it, the “Dance Duffle Ruffle Bag Tutorial.” My daughter’s current bag is cute, but its too small, has no closure, and is just meant for something else.

I seem to now be an expert in fashioning bow ties for Derby, weddings, and…dogs?!

Here is the groom’s bowtie from a wedding this summer.

Here are the bow ties I made for a wedding last year:

How to make: DIY Bow Tie Tutorial and Free Pattern

Since these are so IN right now, thought I would give you a tutorial on how I make them!

Bow Tie Tutorial


First, print out the bow tie template here. Tape them together using the marked overlap. This size seems to fit most people, but its easy to add extra if you need it a bit longer.

How to make: DIY Bow Tie Tutorial and Free Pattern

1.) Use your pattern piece to cut out 4 bow ties from your fabric. Then, cut out just enough fusible interfacing (my fave is Pellon ES114 or 931TD) to cover the bow tie piece, and NOT the neck piece.  It’s way too difficult to turn it inside out like that; plus, all of that is under the shirt collar, and doesn’t need to be super crisp.

2.) Take 2 pieces and put them right sides together. Mark a hole for turning inside out. This is the best place to put it; at the thin end, you smash your bow all up getting it through. Starting at one pin, sew with a 1/4″ seam all the way around, stopping at the other pin.

3.) Clip the curves bowing outward, and pizza-slice the seams turning inward. Grade the corners of the ends of the bow tie as well, as shown. This will give you smooth curves and sharp points!

4.) Turn them inside out, push out all the corners and curves, press the you-know-what out of them, then hand stitch the hole closed. I do this little stitch that runs under the fold of the fabric on one side. Then, right where it comes out of one side, I insert it into the other side, run under that fold for about 1/4″, then pop out, and back over to the other side. This makes your seam invisible.

5.) Hang them on a cute chair and take a photo. I really have no explanation for this photo aside from it is cute. 😉

6.) Sew about 2 inches of velcro to each end. Yes yes, this is cheating a bit, but the groom does NOT want to fumble with this bow tie 10 minutes before the ceremony.  He still has to TIE it, so he gets the full experience, but this way he can do it nicely the night before. And the velcro is under the collar, so no one will ever know!

Yay!  Now GIT TO WORK!

Beach Bag FREE Tutorial

Beach Tote Bag FREE sewing pattern & tutorial

 I have decided to ignore the fact that it's getting a little late in the summer, and I am going to do a tutorial on how to make a VERY SIMPLE laminated cotton beach bag, in two sizes!

I know that some of you like a really BIG beach tote, and some of you would rather carry something a little smaller. Therefore I have suggested two sizes for the bag I am going to make. But you can make it any size you want!
