Maggie and Quincy Bear Applique Quilt with Jennifer Jangles


Hey, Hey!

I am back today with another fun project you can make with my new line of Sizzix Dies. This quilt is made with the Large Quincy and Maggie Die

It's nine blocks, each with an applique bear. I used Kona Solidas for the solid blocks and went to town using up all of my scraps from previous fabric lines. Ther's some Extraordinary World, Strawberry Festival, and Everyday Fun all in this quilt.


Cutting the bears out is a whiz when you are using a die.


It's a lot of fun mixing and matching the fabrics to get those scrappy bears.


Once they are ironed on I stitched around the edge uaing a blanket stitch, it's my favorite for applique. You could always use a zig zag stitch as well.


You could always cut out another bear and make a matching softie along side, because that would make a super cute baby gift. I gave one of these just the other day.


Enjoy!

Boo Boo Helper Bear with Jennifer Jangles


Hi, Hi! I am back today with another project you can make with my new line of Sizzix Dies. This project uses the Small Maggie and Quincy Die. There's not much of a tutorial for this one because you follow the same instructions for making a bear. The only difference is that you fill the bear with rice.

The rice can be heated or frozen to help with your little ones boo boo's.  Wouldn't these be fun to stitch up for a craft fair or holiday bazaar? 


Enjoy!

Holiday Coloring Tags



Every year I enjoy giving you a new printable gift tag to use with your wrapping. This year’s tags are coloring tags. Have fun with your markers and pencils filling in the tags. Make it a family affair and get the whole family coloring tags while you drink hot chocolate.



Once the tags are colored, cut out around the outer line and punch a hole for string. Another option is to print them on full sheet label paper, and then when you cut the tags out, you’ve got stickers for your packages.




I would love to see what you make, tag me on Instagram or post your project to my Facebook page will ya?

Enjoy!

DIY Animal Christmas Ornaments with Jennifer Jangles


I've been on a bit of an ornament making kick around here. That's no surprise because this happens every year about this time. Maybe you heard that I have designed some new dies for Sizzx? You can read about it here on the blog. I knew I had to turn the Bear/Bunny/Cat die into ornaments.



The animals are made just as the softies are so you can follow along with the free project that comes with your die. There's a video here. Before you sew the two bodies together, add a string loop. If you forget you could always tack stitch it to the top of it's head later. 


For the scarf, take a piece of fabric approximately 10" x 3" and fold the long sides in a 1/2" and press. Fold in half again and press. Stitch across each short side 3/4" in from the raw edge. Clip the end to make fringe. Tie the scarf around the neck.

Enjoy!
