Jo-Ann + Kollabora | Insta-Cation Magnets

Wednesday, July 8, 2015


I'm in the throes of nesting (only about 4 more weeks to go until my due date!) and haven't done any crafty projects in what feels like forever. Unless you count hemming curtains as being crafty. I do not. Anyways, this simple photo magnet project by Kollabora and Jo-Ann was easy and quick enough that I was able to get it done between cleaning projects. I really love the result! I am terrible about not getting photos printed and at least now I have a few of my favorite images up on the fridge. The kiddo loves them as well. They're kind of addicting and I want to make more. I just went through my IG feed and picked out some images that stood out to me and went with those. 

You'll find the step by step tutorial and supplies needed here and there is also a video below you can watch. I made a photoshop template with clipping masks to insert my photos into for printing and cutting - feel free to use it if you like. Download it here

The London Backpack

Wednesday, May 20, 2015


I finally finished up another sewing pattern! This backpack has been in the works since last year so it's a huge relief to finally have it out in the world. It's part of the newest Willow & Co Patterns collection and you can find it here. The London Backpack is a medium sized bag - not too big and not too small. It works well for both kids and adults. It features two zipper pockets - one larger outer pocket and a smaller inner pocket. It also has adjustable straps and closes securely with a drawstring and magnetic snap. There are about a million ways you could personalize this and have it work for you!

My super talented friend Hayley of Welcome to the Mouse House has recently released her first fabric line, Color Me Fabric; in collaboration with Michael Miller. She designed this fabric  specifically to be colored on!  Basically it's the perfect kid project fabric. There are four prints in the collection and you can see more details on those here. I let the kiddo choose which print she liked best and she chose 'Space Adventures'. The hard part was deciding what to make with the fabric!

Looking for a fun project to do? The Lumi Photo Printing Kit is a new alternative to screen printing. Using sunlight, you can print your own textiles, t-shirts, and more. Kollabora has teamed up with Create and Craft USA to put together a video tutorial sharing how to make a cool New York themed wall hanging. I'm looking forward to trying out Lumi Inkodye - printing my own fabric is something I've always wanted to do!

This would be a perfect project to do this summer so make sure to check out the kit as well as the tutorial!
