Lazies, Join me for a whole new type of stitchy fun with my four new patterns and pre-cut squares of Stiff Stuff! Think of this as fabric construction paper. We are going to fuse a little, cut a little, stitch a little and done! Meet the new Stiff Stuff Crafts. All four of these designs use the same recipe, working with 10? squares, to create a ‘sandwich’. Cut shapes, stitch the edges, then finish. These new Lazy Girls are quick, easy, and addictive. Perfect for year-end crafting, stitching and gifting.
- Each pattern uses one 10? ‘sandwich’ composed of fabric, Fusi-Bond Lite and Stiff Stuff.
- One sandwich makes one project – sweet!
- Layer cake friendly!
- Patterns available soon! Early November-ish, truly.
Button Boats #LGD138, $10
Oh my goodness, I love this design. Cut and stitch three planks, tie ends together and set sail for stitchy fun. Organize your life, then untie to store flat.
Prezzies #LGD139, $10
A sweet, delicate and simple wrap for little-ish things. Wrap a treasure in beauty for gifting, or hold small things in a beautiful way. For gifting, the recipient can gift again. Wrap a handwritten note with a small gift. More personal than a box for jewelry. Pack delicate items for travel or in your purse. I adore the simple elegance of this fabric wrap.
Tray Chic #LGD140, $10
Get ready to fall in love with these elegant, simple, stylish trays in three shapes. I already have these all over my studio, holding supplies while I work. Perfect valets for your goodies: keys, phone, eye glasses, etc. Don’t tell the Hexi or Square trays, but the Circle is my fav.
Gifty Card Holders #LGD141, $10
Easily personalize or wrap a gift card with these two sweet styles. The Keeper style wraps closed like a little envelope. The Tag style looks great tied to a package or as a tree ornament. They are my new essentials in gift card giving! One 10? sandwich makes two Keeper style or four Tag style holders. Love!
New Stiff Stuff Squares, #SLG107SQ, $8
The unique properties of Stiff Stuff from my Sew Lazy line bring these designs to life. Stiff Stuff is like the perfect hybrid between stiff/crunchy/thick interfacings and foam. Stiff Stuff has structure, but is forgiving, lightweight and thin. They are ready to go for any of the new patterns. Each pack includes four 10″ squares. That’s enough to try all four new patterns.
You are also going to need some of my Fusi-Bond Lite #SLG101 adhesive web to tie everything together. Fusi provides an amazing bond with the feel of ‘cush’, like a gel insole between your fabric and Stiff Stuff. It’s quite interesting and nice.
Button Up! #JABC8+color number
Get ready for a whole new line of amazing buttons from Just Another Button Company! These Snack Packs of gorgeousness are small-batch, hand-dyed buttons, in 35 custom colors to fit today’s fabric and crafting trends. One Snack Pack will make all of our new Girls. Oh my goodness! I want them all! More about these beauties in an upcoming post.
All colors are also available in two other packaged sizes: Smoothies, round buttons with a matte finish are perfect for primitives; Party Packs are loaded with different shapes, sizes and finishes for more fun.
Floss, Ribbon or Yarn Pearl cotton embroidery floss from Weeks Dye Works
The new Girls use a combo of buttons and ties for closures. I love the hand-dyed pearl cotton embroidery floss from Weeks Dye Works shown on the pattern covers. I use size #3 which comes in 10yd skeins of scrumptious colors.
Each pattern uses templates. Check out my handy tutorial for laminating your own paper templates. Tutorial: Slicker Templates
