I love sewing and the Ecraft machine makes embellishing fabric so easy! I love to use it for creating one of a kind gifts! I love using it to create quilt blocks and mug rugs.
My project for this hop is a wristlet! I know that monograms are so hot right now and I needed a bag of my very own! So here it is! I am celebrating Sewing as this is National Sewing Month! I am so excited about all of the wonderful projects that the eCraft is helping me make!

I decided to make a Monogrammed Wristlet this time! It was very easy but looks sharp!I am just excited to share how easy it is to cut fabric with an Ecraft machine. I love it so!
Here we go:
I chose my fabrics first. I needed four different ones for my project as well as a ten inch zipper. I also used fleece batting to make it quilted. I cut two pieces of fabric for the cover 9.5 by 9 inches, I also cut the same size for my batting and lining. I used a ten inch zipper. I also made a wrist loop for carrying it.
First I found that using my Ecraft was a joy to complete this project. I was able to produce sharp letters for my applique. I made two layers of my initials, so I could fray the shadow color. I love the effect. Well to begin with I used freezer paper and also "Heat-N-Bond" light to stabilize the fabric.
I decided to use temporary basting spray to place the letters on the cover so I could straight stitch them on my "bag".
I was able to place the letters on my cover and then straight stitch without fear of the letter moving.
I sewed two small tabs to the end of the zippers
I then sewed the cover to the zipper.
I then sewed around the outside, keeping a seam of the lining open so I could turn my bag right side out easily.
I hope you enjoyed my project and would love to share my methods with you. I hope you feel free to leave comments. I would love to share my method with you!Please come back and see what else I have to offer you!
Good luck and keep on Hopping!
