Crafty Little Thing to Sew

Hi all!  I am so pleased and honored to be part of Caroline’s new book, Crafty Little Things to Sew.  YAY!  Caroline is amazing- from her beautifully curated blog, Sew Can She, to her fabulous classes on Craftsy (I have tried both and love them!) to her adorable sewing patterns, she is really making waves in the sewing world!

9781454710455_int_00i-xxx.inddMy contribution to the book is this really fun lunch box pattern.  The project is called the Lunch-in-a-Snap Tote on pages 89-93.  It is great for the working girls because you can fit your salad containers and leftovers (my favorite lunch!) as well as a sandwich, pretzels, fruit, etc.  Plus, it is so cute

I made another version so I could re visit the project.  Book publishing is a long process and I created this a few years ago.  Yup, I still love it and I think you will too 🙂 . Here is the version I made today…

So fun!  The fabrics are from Joann Fabrics- they are the Cloud 9 organics line.  So pretty, right?

Be sure to check out some of the other contributors to the book who are blogging about their projects too!

  1. I have been working on some quilted (folded) Christmas ornaments. They are a joy to make and so pretty when complete.

    • Hi Anne Marie! Great to hear from you. Are you making the stars? I want to try those out!

  2. I love that lunchbox. I didn’t think lunchbox, I thought holder of “things” for my 4 year old Grandson. I haven’t been too crafty lately, I have been busy with an open heart( the 4 year old,, He is fine now) the 16 year old ( just being 16) and my radiation treatments( breast cancer, but I, too, am fine now.) I am looking forward to starting to sew again. Thanks for the chance to win.

    • glad to hear you and your family on the mend Patty! You are right- it doesn’t have to be a lunch box at all!

  3. I have a marine blue vinyl mesh beach bag underway that I’m going to love because the sand will just fall right through! I will have to make one for each of my grandies, too, for seashell collection! (A Florida must-have collection of beach-y things is on list) I would SO LOVE to have Caroline’s book, as I LOVE to make crafty little things for my family! Your lunch kit is darling, and I know my brand new kindergartener granddaughter would adore it!

    Holy cow is this ever hard to read. I hope I didn’t make any typos. 🙂

    • HI Barbara! You are making me jealous with beach talk since the weather is changing fast toward winter here! Your beach bag sounds very clever! good luck with the book!

  4. I would love to win this book. I love to sew small little projects. I have been working on making hexagon potholders to give to coworkers as gifts.

  5. Been a while since I’ve made anything. I believe it was a small crossbody for my granddaughter.

  6. I love the lunch box. Too cute.

  7. I’ve been working on some quilty projects. Want to start sewing wallets again

  8. My most recent finish was a rainbow clutch from Anna’s book, Handmade Style. I am now torn between making another to keep or working on a seasonal pattern I’m designing. ;o)

    Love your lunch bag design! So cute and so practical – I would want one or two for my own use and think they’d make great gifts!

  9. Working on items for my women’s group craft fair including woven star ornaments and travel trays. This book looks like a lot of fun, thanks for the chance to win.

  10. Still working on my daughter’s back to school pencil pouch. Ready for Christmas? 😉 1/2 the school year left!

  11. I made a zippered canvas bag for my husband. He has a new gps to take hiking. This will give home a safe place to store and find! everything that’s goes wit it on his hiking trips.

  12. I went crazy and built my daughter a raised bed in the shape of a house… it turned out so cute and im really proud of myself… I had a heart attack a few months back at 34 so it took alot of energy but it really helped my mental health!
    Im usually a seamstress I was suprised it went well lol! X

  13. I made a travel tissue pouch cover. Cute lunch box!

  14. The projects in this book look great! I’m just starting on my first quilt. It’s slow going, but that’s all my fault.

  15. Working on some paper pieced quilt blocks! This looks adorable!

  16. I love the lunch tote. But again it would get used for snacks when we travel!

  17. I have a dozen makers totes prepped and ready to sew. One of my favorite patterns even though I hate binding.

  18. Oh, love this! The book looks fabulous…sew can she is the bestest

  19. I’ve been sewing a variety of things-zipper pouches, clutches, trying out a few ornaments, some English paper piecing, and some custom orders.

  20. I’d love to win a copy of the book! Lots of cute bags.

  21. I’ve been enjoying sewing clothes lately rather than crafts. My last crafty make was the Vacation Tote from your pattern shop! I use mine all the time and totally love it. I also made one for my daughter and she uses hers constantly. Totes are really useful and a fun way to use up fabric scraps. I know I would use that cute lunchbox if I had the pattern!

  22. I have been making drawstring bags and potholders for an upcoming craft market.

  23. I just made clear Frozen zipper pouch for my little one to hold all of her Frozen dolls….she loves it!

  24. Last week I made tote bag for a friends’ birthday. I also made several folded pouches from the book Abbeygale Sews, they are so pretty and I filled them with stationary for Christmas presents. This week i am making Christmas bunting. Thank you for a fun giveaway. x

  25. Thanks for a great giveaway. I have been making some Christmas ornaments for bingo prizes at the annual family party. I’m amazed at how much time you can spend on these!!

  26. This is so cute- I’m actually in need of a new lunchbox so this project might get bumped to the start of my queue.
    I’ve been slowly quilting a single girl quilt for my cousin’s kid. slowwwwwly being the operative word!
    Hope I win!

  27. I recently made my mom a zippered shoulder bag. I will be starting on some cushion covers for my couch pretty soon. So…nothing exciting here, but functional. Thank you for your contribution to the book. Have a great day!

  28. I am finishing a halloween quilt– i probably will just finish on the 31st

  29. It’s been awhile since I was crafty! Thinking some fun projects will help the winter blahs

  30. I ❤️ making small quick projects. I’m currently cleaning my sewing room and I keep finding small bags of coordinated fabrics from other projects. I use these to make tiny quilts for babies who pass. Keepsake for the family.
    I’d love to try some of the projects in this book!

  31. I am working on Halloween costume an then on to a few quilts!

  32. I’ve been sewing bags – zipper bags made with some pretty vintage fabrics a friend gave me, and Halloween trick or treat bags and pillowcases for some great nephews 🙂 I love making bags, and am always on the lookout for fun new designs. Your lunch bag looks like it would make a good “grab it and go” bag for the greats for car trips!

  33. I’m making a wallet with multiple zipper envelopes that can be used with the Dave Ramsey budgeting system.

  34. Currently searching for gift ideas to start for Christmas.
