DIY Face Mask Lanyard and Accessories



With face masks becoming a part of our daily life, I wanted to share some simple DIY hacks and projects with Dritz products that will make wearing masks a bit less complicated. From DIY lanyards to a handy Carabiner these projects also help with the kids as they head back to in-person school.

Lately I've been using this free mask pattern from Dritz. I love the level 3 version. I did a couple for my kids for school and myself. It's my new go-to style.

DIY: Sashiko Embroidery



I was browsing Embroidery Online and came across this new collection: Sashiko Reflections. The collection features traditional Japanese folk embroidery but with a modern twist. Sashiko uses a running stitch for decorative purposes when sewing to repair worn places or tears with patches. "This collection combines these traditional patterns with iconic florals, birds, butterflies, and fans." I used these designs to create a Sashiko Tea set and to repair some old jeans. I love how they turned out. Get the details below.

Shopper Bag with Snap Closure


Lately I've been doing a lot of bag sewing these days because they're practical (never-ending grocery store runs is my new job) and easy to sew. I have been enjoying testing out the different innovative snap closures Dritz offers from magnetic to sew-on there is a list of them to try for your sewing project needs. I wanted to shared a couple of my new favorites that I recently tried out and share the simple application process.

DIY Applique Sweatshirt




With more days spent at home and outside, I found my "momiform" is a lot of comfy clothing these days. Of course I need a good sweatshirt in the mix for cooler mornings and evenings. Being a designer I felt inspired to customize the sweatshirt with cute wording like "LOVE" and "COOL MOM" using applique letters. I really liked this collection from OESD Floral Alphabet Appliques and they have plenty of other options to choose from. This is a great way to add a design to a sweatshirt and great gift ideas too. Get the details below to make your own.

Elevate your accessories with these fashionable (hands free) belt bags. I look at these as an updated version of a fanny pack. Make a removable belt and now you have two custom accessories. Add Dritz Double-Cap Rivets for an edgy detail. These supplies now come in bulk packages so I can embellish as much as I need. Get the details below on how to make your own vinyl belt and bag.
