Sleep Mask - DIY Tutorial!

Hey hey makers!

How are you doing today? I hope you are all feeling great because I'm feeling happy and excited! Today, I will teach you how to make a sleep mask. I found this project very useful and fun because every girl needs her beauty sleep! The best thing about this projects is that it's not hard to make. Since I'm a beginner, I always try to look for cool and useful projects that are not that complicated. I think this one was a success! 

Well, let's begin with this fun adventure!

 

Supplies:

  • 2 pieces of cotton fabric (12'' x 6.5'') each

  • 1 1/2" x 34'' strip of fabric

  • 10" Elastic band

  • Batting (12'' x 6.5'')

  • Glue gun

  • Scissors

  • Sewing machine

  • Sewing needle 

  • Rik rak trim (you can use any trim for decoration)

  • Safety pins

  • Template (click here to download)

1. Print the template, cut it and then pin it to both pieces of fabric you'll be using.  


_MG_9249

2. Proceed to cut the fabric around the shape that you have pinned. It will look like this.


_MG_9255

3.Pin the fabric to the batting and cut out along the edges of the fabric (follow the same shape).

_MG_9263

After cutting it should look like this!


 

_MG_9251

4.  Pin your 1 1/2" x 34" strip all the way across and sew the right sides together on the edge.  This will be the strap of your mask.

_MG_9274

5. Once you have sewed the edge of the strip turn it inside out. Pin a safety pin to a elastic band and insert it . Pin a safety pin to a elastic band and insert it into one of the ends of the fabric tube. Start moving the elastic through the tube, letting the fabric bunch along it. Keep doing it until you get to the other end of the tube. I suggest pinning the other end so the elastic doesn't move. 

_MG_9281

6.Sew the elastic to the fabric at both ends of the tube. By doing this you will ensure that the elastic stays spread across.

_MG_9286

_MG_9289

7. Now, it's time to start sewing your mask! Place right sides of your mask together with the batting on the back of one of the fabrics. Also, make sure to place the elastic tube in the middle of the fabrics (like a sandwich). Then, pin the edges together. Sew a straight stitch all around the edges of the mask. Make sure to leave a 2.5" open hole to be able to flip the fabrics.


 

  _MG_9297

_MG_9301

8. This is how it should look after you sew the mask. 


_MG_9307

9. After, sewing all around the edges, you will flip the mask right side out. Then, you will sew the open hole by using a needle and thread with an invisible hand stitch. 


_MG_9302

10. Make sure to iron your mask when you finish. This will give it a smooth and nice look.



Tutorial blog

And VOILA! This is how the sleep mask will look! I added some decoration to it so it will look fun and cute. You can do the same. Just cut two 3'' rik rak trim ( or any other decorative trim) and hot glue them in the middle of the mask and they will look like sleepy eyes. :) Oh! In case you guys loved the fabric, I used Hello Ollie Fabrics by Bonnie Christine.

 

I hope you all enjoyed!

Hey Everyone!

How are you all doing? Here at the HQ we’ve been revealing our upcoming fall 2016 collections and it has been tons of fun. As we release new fabrics and the seasons change, one of my favorite things to do during my free time is to decorate my house in festive themes to match the season. There’s always something so nice about giving your living room a face lift with a few cute pillows, a nice rug, and a cozy quilt.

Let's continue having fun with Grey fabric prints

Hello, beautiful crafters!

We hope that you love our selection of fabrics for October Color Fun! Today we want to share with you some projects made with a couple of featured grey fabric prints. We hope to inspire you even more with this cool, muted and elegant color! Pay attention to the colors that were combined with grey in these projects. As you remember from our previous Color Fun blog post, we explained how to mix match grey with other fabric prints. Take a look at the subtle addition of bright yellows, greens, or pastels in those projects. What a great way to add a little pop of color without taking away the beauty of grey itself!

1.“Humingbird” Tunic

What girl doesn’t love owls, right? I know my niece is crazy about them and she would jump to the stars if I made her this knit “Humingbird” Tunic with this grey owls fabric print. The Heartland line, designed by Pat Bravo includes more grey fabric prints that perfectly match yellow and pink prints. Stay tuned for the release of the look book for tons of sewing ideas!

Nocturnal Beauty Comes to Life with Nightfall Fabrics

Hey Everyone!

No matter what part of the world you live in, we can all agree that there is something peaceful about gazing at the night sky while the stars twinkle at us. But most people don’t realize that there’s much more to the night than stars.  As the sun goes down to make way for the moon’s smile, nocturnal critters appear to start their day.  

The hoot of owls fill the air as the hymn from crickets crescendo in the distance. Fire flies dance in the darkness and small creatures jump from the trees and rejoice in the delicate moonlight, until another day comes by. This nocturnal beauty is brought to life in Maureen Cracknell’s newest collection, Nightfall.

Nightfall_banner_600px

Maureen plays homage to the creatures and wonders of the late hours in this striking collection! She shows off prints filled with moons, owls, and cute night critters while showing off her bohemian style.

Fabric swatches

I personally think, that the concept of this collection is beautiful because many times we overlook all the natural wonders that occur at night. Plus, it simply feels mystical! When I look at some of these prints I can imagine myself as a gypsy roaming through the forest…but I digress XD

Observer Fabrics: The Beauty of Textures & Surroundings

Hey, Everyone!

Lately, I’ve been thinking how in today’s society it’s so easy to live life on auto-pilot. We wake up, drink our coffee, get the ready for work, come back home, try to take five minutes to sew something (if possible), go to sleep, and then start all over again. Sometimes we get stuck in our routines and we don’t realize how beautiful our surroundings can be. We forget to admire the glistening morning dew on our gardens or how cute the buttons on our favorite shirts are.

I know it sounds silly, but we have to stop and “smell the flowers” because life is short and we should enjoy every bit of it. One of our designers, April Rhodes really put this into perspective with her new collection Observer. This fabric collection, is inspired by the many man-made and naturally occurring patterns that surround us. Whether it’s the chipped paint on a dingy wall or a birds eye view of the city at night, they are little details that make our world beautiful.

Observer_banner

What’s great is that you can incorporate this amazing world or textures and patterns into your sewing. Observer is filled with minimal prints combined with artistic motifs such as, subtle paint splatters and edgy tie-dyes. Some of my favorite projects that were made with this collection were trendy totes and bags because they reminded me of products you can find in stores like Anthropologie and Free People.

ArtGalleryFabrics_Observer_Handbags_1

The colors of this collection are also great for home décor! The warm mustard yellows combined with the dusty blues and navy are nice accents without being overpowering.

ArtGalleryFabrics_Observer_Mini&Pillows_1

If you’re loving these projects already, feel free to check out the look book. It’s filled with tons of garments, quilts, and home décor ideas. Plus, some of the projects have links to the patterns!

 

One project you have to download is this “Inward” FREE QUILT PATTERN! Its unique design combined with the muted color will look great in your home.

If you’re looking to mix and match a few blenders into your projects, we’ve prepared a curated selection of AGF elements that coordinate with this collection.

Sewing DO's and DON'Ts - Ola Makes a Clutch: Part 1

Sewing-dos-and-dontsHello AGF friends!

Do you remember last quilt market ? Who doesn't right? It was so much fun and there was tons of excitement around the new AGF collections. I spent most of my time in the AGF Studio booth where we presented gorgeous clutches among other cute projects sewn with AGF denim and a variety of collections. I have to admit, I could sit there all day long and admire the clutches. They were simply delightful! Meli - one of our product designers noticed how amazed I was and she kindly offered me a sewing lesson, so I could make one of the clutches I had been swooning about! Thank you Meli!

From that time I couldn't stop thinking about it! Recently Meli and I finally found some time to make my dream come true!

ArtGalleryFabrics_AGF-studio_18

I am going to share with you the process of sewing my very first clutch and all the sewing DO'S and DON'TS I have learned throughout the process.

 So here's how the story goes:

  1. Choosing the fabric

As you can read in one of my blog posts : "Fabric Prints inspired by birds",  I exceptionally like birds in fashion. I associate them with freedom and I feel like wearing prints with birds makes me feel like I'm flying through the day. ;) That's why my choice for the main print of the clutch was going to be no other than Aves Chatter Dim from Winged by Bonnie Christine. Meli liked the choice and she asked me to choose the fabric for lining.

Digging through the piles of AGF prints, I was looking for fabric that will just make me happy whenever I open the clutch. And there it was! Striped pink fabric known as Streakly Business Blush from Pat's Bravo Collection, Essentials II.

I was happily ran back to Meli to show her my choice but she was not enthused by my choice. This completely surprised me because in my head: 

  1. This print is simple and pretty.
  2. Only I was going to see the inside of the clutch so why did it need to match the outside? ;p

She explained to me why I should consider a different print for the lining, and these were her tips:

  • "Even if you don't see the lining because it's inside the bag, DO keep it cohesive with any element (color, design, texture, etc.) from the the outside of the bag."
  • "DON'T use busy prints for the outside and inside of your clutch because it will clash with the look of your project."

I was in awe when Meli told me this because I always underestimated the process of choosing fabrics. I reconsidered my choice and realized she was right. If I want to achieve beautiful aesthetics like professionally made clutches, I have to really find a good match for the lining!

So she helped me to choose the rest of my fabrics, and here are my choices:

 

Fabric-choice

from left to right:

a)Linen fabric -for front pocket (DEN-L-4000 Soft Sand from the Denim Studio by AGF)

b)Lightweight dark denim - for the handle (DEN-S-2001 Indigo Shadow from the Denim Studio by AGF)

c)Light brown solid fabric - for the lining (PE-440 Macchiatto from Pure Elements by AGF)

d)Textured dark denim - for the front pocket (DEN-T-3000 Bluebottle Field)

c)Birds fabric - for the front of the clutch (WNG-2026 Aves Chatter Dim)

 

2. Choosing the pattern

I really like the adjustments that Meli did to the Jessy clutch pattern from the Hello Ollie Lookbook. I love the front pocket with snaps and I knew that it was something that I wanted to go for! So I decided to make the exact same clutch.  

ArtGalleryFabrics_Hello,Ollie_Clutches_3
 

 3. Cutting the fabric

After I had chosen my fabrics and pattern, it was time to cut all the fabric pieces and prepare all supplies for the project.

Besides the pieces of fabric I needed:

  • 9" zipper
  • snaps for the front pocket
  • clasp for bag handle
  • zipper foot
  • blind stitch foot

All the dimensions (besides the front pocket) are in the clutch pattern. I marked the dimensions of the pocket on the picture below. 

Here is what I have learned when cutting my fabric and preparing supplies:

  • DON'T ever leave the rotary cutter blade exposed when you are done cutting the fabric.
  • DO iron your fabrics before cutting. 
  • DO measure your pieces very precisely before cutting because your projects depends on it.
  • DO align your rotary cutter to the ruler and press firmly to the mat to make sure that you cut the fabric correctly.

 

Supplies-for-clutch

Uff I've survived through all the prepping. Now its time to start sewing! Wish me luck!

I hope you're curious to see how the final result will look! I can't wait to show you my first clutch! Let me know in the comments if you have any DO's and DON'Ts of your own that I should follow. 

Stay tuned for the next part of my sewing DO'S and DON'TS :)

 

All the best

Ola


AGF Elements: Blenders You Will Love

Hey there, fabric lovers!

I would like to start this post by asking you a very simple but interesting question.

 

What do you know about the AGF Elements? 

IMG_1923

Today you will learn everything about the blenders a.k.a AGF elements. We have a huge variety of hues just for you to get the exact color you've been looking for! With our blenders you will be able to match and color coordinate your projects with ease! Lets get to know the seven different blender collections known as: round elements, squared elements, prisma elements, pure elements, floral elements, nature elements and oval elements

We know that sometimes it's hard to combine certain fabric prints or you just can't find the right color. That's when blenders come to save you from stress and fear! Blenders are perfect for any project whether you want to make it look bold or simple. Also, my favorite thing about blenders is that you can just use them on their own or in combination with a any collection. Either way your project will turn out perfect and beautiful!

Oh, oh! And before I forget, we have another collection of solid blenders in knit fabric! How awesome, right? Imagine combining printed knits with solid knits. WOW! just by thinking about it, I got the urge to run to the sewing room and make something for myself! 

Take a closer look at all the blenders AGF offers:

Round Elements Bolts

Round Elements

Get ready to make your world go 'round with our collection of Round Elements! A classic organic shape surrounded by different colors that will bring unique dimensions to each of your projects. You can use it by itself or combine it with your favorite collection! What's awesome about this blender is that some of the colors come in knits. Imagine a sash on a dress made with this blender or even the backing of a quilt.

IMG_7423

Prisma Elements

Let's talk about Prisma Elements! The Prismas are one of my favorite AGF blender collections because they are very simple yet elegant! If you love saturated jewel tone colors, these are the blenders for you. A fun fact about all the colors of this collection is that they are all named after precious stones. In addition, some of the prints have the triangles printed in metallic to add a little sheen to any project.

IMG_8375

Square Elements

If you're looking to add a little contrast to your projects or you're looking for a simple small scale fabric, Squared Elements are ideal. These elements will give any project visual depth because the print consists of squares in different sizes on white or colored backgrounds. I think this blender is awesome because it reminds of a funky gingham pattern. 


IMG_3505MOD

Pure Elements 

Now, let's move on to our Pure Elements a.k.a Solids! Solids are the most common among everyone. They are perfect to mix and match with any kind of prints and they come in a variety of colors. No matter what mood you're in, Pure Elements will add that extra pop of color you might be looking for or will give your project subtle accents. Plus, they're so pretty look at! 

Nature_fabrics

Nature Elements

Nature Elements are funky, artsy, and bold! The design of these elements shows off the abstract idea of little leaves with a twist of stripes, hence the "nature" part of their name. They are perfect to use by themselves or as a unique accent. 


Floral elements with flower

Floral Elements

If you love incorporating florals in everything you make, Floral Elements will be your favorite blenders. They let you add the femininity and classiness of flowers without overpowering the design of your project. Like all of our other blenders, these elements come in a variety of colors for you to choose from. I simply love the pink ones because they look so girly.

IMG_1606

Oval Elements

And last but not least, these are the oval elements! The multi colored ovals in this blender give the print a unique take on dotted fabrics. What I love about this blender is that from a distance the ovals enhance the bold colors of the fabric but up close you can see the unique color combinations that make up the print. It's like having two different fabrics in one!


After playing with all of our blenders and looking at all these pictures, I'm craving to sew something! It's not only the colors or prints that are alluring, but the softness of our fabric is simply incredible! Every time I walk around the office and see a quilt I just want to snuggle in it!

To share my love for the AGF elements with you, I'm hosting a GIVEAWAY! Have a chance to win this beautiful bundle of blenders by filling out the form below.

5 Bag Patterns for Back to School

Hi everyone!

Summer may not be over yet, but a special time of year has begun. Can you guess what it is? It’s that time of the year most kids dread and crafty mommies love because they get to make time for sewing. It’s Back to School season! For some, school has already started but for those of you who still have some time, we bet you’re hurrying up to make everything perfect! Don’t worry, AGF is here to help!

Bag Patterns Graphic

A backpack is one of the most important school supplies any kid can have. So, we’ve put together a list of our 5 favorite bag patterns that are great for back to school. Check them out!

ArtGalleryFabrics_Pastel-Thirft_Backpack-Bibliomania-Antidote_3

1. The Milla Bag

First, let’s start with one of my favorite backpack patterns designed by the girls here at the AGF HQ. Makers, I’m happy to introduce to you the Milla Bag! This spacious bag was first featured in the Millie Fleur fabrics by Bari J. look book as a messenger bag. The pattern is so versatile that it was then slightly modified to have backpack straps (picture above) for the Pastel Thrift fabrics by AGF studio look book. I simply love its vintage inspired design and the unique look the front straps give this backpack.

ArtGalleryFabrics_Artisan_Handbag2_1

2. The Reflected Bag

If you have a daughter that’s a fashionista, this Reflected Bag designed by Pat Bravo is perfect to arrive the first day of school in style! We decided to make this bag with Artisan fabrics by Pat Bravo since it’s a feminine yet artistic collection. If you would like to experiment with different fabrics, I can totally imagine this bag being made with Nightfall Fabrics by Maureen Cracknell.

ArtGalleryFabrics_Playground_Backpacks_2

3. Pack the Back 

Another great pattern designed by the girls here in the AGF HQ is the “Pack the Back” pattern. This adorable backpack is great for any of you that have kids in elementary school. This backpack is spacious, cute, and simple to make! I’m sure you’re little one will love it as soon as they see it. For the version you see above, we decided to use Amy Sinibaldi’s sweet and youthful collection, Playground.

ArtGalleryFabrics_Sketchbook_Handbag3_3

4. The Study Haul Bag

For those of you who prefer making something more classic, you’re going to love the Study Haul messenger bag designed by Sharon Holland! This bag is sturdy, stylish, and will look great throughout the school year. To make it extra durable, we decided to make it with “Outburst” canvas fabric from Sharon’s Sketchbook collection.

Agf_denimStudio_backpacks_2

5. The Slouchy Backpack

Last but not least, we have the Slouchy Backpack pattern designed by our designer Bonnie Christine. As you can see we loved this pattern so much, that we had to make it every color of our textured denim fabric. This pattern is unique because it has a relaxed look yet is spacious enough for tons of books, snacks, and anything else your kids may need. My favorite one is the blue one made with the “Bluebottle Field” denim.


I hope you enjoyed our selection of bag patterns for back to school. Feel free to download all the patterns and make one of each! Let me know in the comments what your favorite bag is and what collection you would use to make it.

 

Happy Sewing!

Pandalicious Blog Tour Re-Cap

Hello wonderful makers!

First off, I just want to say that we are super thankful to be surrounded by so many creative people like yourselves! Here at the studio, we always get excited to see on social media all the beautiful projects that you make with AGF. For me, it’s even more exciting when I’m able to meet makers who love AGF in person.

During Quilt Market in Salt Lake City, I had the opportunity to meet Karly from the blog Paisley Roots. Since it’s always nice to talk to someone face to face (especially since technology is changing the way we interact), I was really happy to chat with Karly about her love for Pandalicious by Katarina Roccella. Hence, we both agreed that it would be great if she hosted a Pandalicious Blog Tour!

Pandalicious_blog tour banner

So, Karly gathered some talented makers and the blog tour began as soon as we released the collection! Here’s a list of everyone who participated:

I’ve prepared a little video for you that shows off all the projects featured in this tour. Check it out!

I love how everyone’s unique style was showed off with the cute children’s garments that were made. But the garments weren’t the only cool projects in this blog tour! How about that backpack made with the “Pandalings Pod Assured” canvas fabric and the mini quilt made with a variety of prints from the collection? I know, it’s really hard to pick a favorite…

To read about their project ideas and how their little ones were involved, make sure to visit all of the makers’ blogs! Feel free to let me know in the comments, what projects you loved from the blog tour and what you have made with Pandalicious.

As always, stay creative and thanks for inspiring!

Xoxo,

Stephanie
