Hoy les traigo un tutorial para hacer una bolsa de regalo para las botellas de vino. Quedan con una presentación muy elegante.





.
¡Me gusta mucho el resultado!
 Hace unas semanas estaba navegando a través de una revista y vi a estos vinos en unas lindas bolsas de regalo. Pensé que era una gran idea y decidí hacer mi propia bolsa. 
.
.
Supplies:
- felt (if you use sheets from the craft store, you will need two per bag)
- button, or button cover kit and fabric scrap
- contrasting thread
- scissors or rotary cutter and straight edge
.
Cut the following pieces:
.
.
{Note that the pieces labeled 3" x 8" in the photo are actually 2-1/2" wide.  I tried that size first before deciding that 3" x 8" was the right size}
.
Use a rotary cutter or scissors to cut pieces to size.
.
.
For the 4" circle I found a mug that was 4" wide and traced it onto the felt.
.
.
At this point, decide if you want to add a monogram or another decorative feature to your bag.  In my first version, I didn't add anything.  But in the other versions I did.  To add an monogram, print out a letter on your computer and trace on to fabric and cut out.  Stitch your letter to the bag or use Pellon Wonder Under and and iron on to one piece of the 6" x 8" felt.
.
Next, pin the two 6" x 8" pieces together (RIGHT sides out; you want to see the seams) and sew along the two edges.
.
.
.
Next, pin on the bottom and sew.
.
.
.
Now your bag looks like this:
.
.
.
Take the two 3" x 8" strips and pin together.  Sew along three sides.  You do not need to sew the fourth edge because you will be sewing that to the back of your sleeve.
.
.
After sewing around three edges:
.
.
Now you need to cut out the area that will fit through the top of the wine bottle.  The opening should be 3-1/2" long x 1-1/2" wide.  I used a roll of tape to trace the half circle on each end.  Start the half circle 2" from the top of the rectangle (the top is the edge that you didn't sew along).
.
.
.
Cut out the area you just drew.
.
.
And sew along the edges.
.
.
Almost finished!
.
Pin the rectangle to the back of your bag and sew.  Make sure to only sew to the back of the bag and not through both layers!
.
{In the next version that I made, I sewed the rectangle on to the 6" x 8" piece of felt before I sewed the front and back together and it was much easier.  Does that make sense?}
.
.
Use a fabric covered button kit to cover your button.  Put a wine bottle in the bag and determine where your button hole and button should be sewn.  Cut the button hole and sew edges on your sewing machine.  You could also use a button hole function on your machine but I thought it was easier to just sew with a straight stitch.  Sew button to bag.
.
.
That's it!
.
I ended up using Wonder Under to iron on a "n" to the front of the bag.
.
.
Here are a few photos of the wine sleeves I made:
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
Aren't these cute?  I think it's an easy way to dress up a bottle of wine.  And inexpensive too.  I think I made each one of these for about $1.00 each

Tutorial: Diadema o Vincha en fieltro



Hola chicas, hoy les traigo otro tuto para hacer una guapisima diadema o vincha en fieltro( en inglés).
Espero les guste.
Un beso.



A few months ago I bought some beautiful wool felt in colors that reminded me of the peacocks roaming our backyard when I was younger. Project after project came about from the felt, but I knew I was going to have to pay tribute to those vain little birds.


For Halloween my daughter was a can-can dancer and as I made her headpiece I got excited about feathers, they looked so cute in her hair. This headband is a little less dressy and a little more playful than real feathers.


You need: felt scraps, a headband, ribbon wide enough to cover the headband, and a glue gun.  Click "Read More" for full directions and down-loadable pattern.


Hot glue ribbon to headband, wrapping around bottom edge. 


Cut the shapes from the felt, I used a disappearing marker to trace the shapes first.  Download shape pattern here.

Stack the shapes and trim, if necessary. Glue pieces together.
Arrange on headband and carefully glue in place.

Tutorial: La capa de Superman



Hola a todas! hoy les dejo un tutorial que encontré para los mas chiquitines, les va a encantar, las capas de superman!!!
Un trabajito fácil, rápido y muy resultón.

Que aprovechen!



I am “super” excited about this little tutorial!!  This Father’s Day, we will be celebrating in super-hero style!  One of our silly traditions is to dress up and celebrate Father’s Day in some goofy way.  So this is how we will be celebrating Father’s Day… each of us with our own superman capes!

I did a few quick measurements on the hubs (top secret, of course!), Little Man, and myself.  I measured neck circumference (for the hole of the cape), width across the shoulders, width across the back, and the length from shoulders to end of back.  I added a few extra inches to all my measurements to make them extra big.  I folded my felt and cut it to the appropriate length.  Then I cut snips at my bottom and top (using my measurements for back width at bottom and shoulder width at the top).  I cut a straight line between my two snips to give it a cape shape.

Using my neck circumference, I cut a hole (still folded) for the head.

Because I wanted our capes to be double thickness for extra durability, I used the first cape as my pattern and cut out a second!

I printed off a superman logo and cut it apart so that I could use it as a pattern.  I made a smaller pattern for Little Man’s cape and a larger pattern for the adult capes.

I pinned everywhere and sewed the 2 layers together.


Sewing around the logo was a little tricky, but if I can do it, so can you!

Last thing!  I snipped the neck apart and added 2 velcro squares so it could attach easily.

I just had to see Little Man in his cape!  So tonight, he strutted his stuff in super-baby style before going to bed.  Doesn’t he look adorable in his Elmo slippers and Superman cape??  One thing is for sure, this is one SUPER kiddo.

And that’s it!!  This was the easiest thing I have made in a long, long time.  And I know Little Man will only enjoy it more and more as he gets older!  I can’t wait to surprise Super- hubs with our cheezy-ness on Father’s Day!
