How to Personalize your Tailgate Teammate Tote

Today we are going to share with you many different ways you can embellish your Tailgate Teammate Tote. Even if you do not have an embroidery machine there are tons of methods you can use to give your bag a center accent.
Use Heat N Bond to create your own design, 
like the Bird Appliqué
Iron a Team patch, we found iron on patches for every team at Football Fanatics.
Use team flowers, we found this one on Etsy but you could even make your know!

Classroom Cozies Tutorial

The classroom cozy is a wonderful way to organize your classroom or even your child's room at home. This pattern is also great because if you flip and turn the cozy it will look the same on the opposite side therefore you will be able to use it longer!

Quilting

Yesterday was a perfect day to quilt! The high was 75, so I opened all the windows, kicked off my shoes and enjoyed the breeze as my sewing machine hummed along. 
We went with purple binding to match the center embroidered, Judy Moody patch.
I really enjoyed quilting. I have so much respect for the art. I would love to attend a quilt show. Might have to see the quilt show at the State Fair this year. Do you quilt? What are some of your favorite blocks or designs?

Char's Beads 4 U

I love ordering from different Etsy shops. I have never had an issue with any of them and people there are so nice to work with. Recently, I ordered from a shop called Char's Beads 4 U. She had 1.5" swivel hooks, I needed for making lanyards. Lanyard Tutorial available here. I placed the order and waited for the mail.
Then in the mail I received this!
A beautiful bag with swivel hooks and something else.
When I opened the bag up I found...
a smaller second bag and a musical note zipper pull charm!
When I opened the second bag I found...
These beautiful musical note earrings! I love them! I am a music teacher too, so these will be perfect on the first day of school! If you need any beads, zipper pulls, charms or swivel hooks please visit Char's Beads 4 U. She has a wonderful Etsy shop. This was one of the best experiences I have had on Etsy yet.

Sew Spoiled Quilting

I started to make a small throw quilt for my daughters. We love to read together and I thought this could be our reading quilt. It is still warm here in the Carolinas but we used these summer months to gather quilt blocks and sew it together. 
All of these blocks are little memories for us. Of course the Judy Moody embroidery block is in the center.
Here we are sewing the topper together. 
Placing the topper onto the batting and backing material we measured out what we needed.
The fun part, quilting all three pieces together. The girls enjoyed this part the most. We haven't started on the binding yet. Can't wait to share more.
Happy Sewing,
