Seed Storage Pocket - Project for Thermoweb

Hello! I’m excited to share my first project tutorial with you to celebrate Spring – a handy dandy Seed Storage Pocket. This is a cute way to store your Springtime seeds for yourself or it makes a lovely gift for a friend or two! You can also use it to store other things such as a small notebook, pen, and much more! For this project, I used Heat N Bond Iron on Vinyl in Matte for the front and HeatnBond Craft Extra Firm Non-Woven Fusible Interfacing for the body and pockets to give it a nice sturdy finish. Head over to the Thermoweb Blog here to access the project tutorial. Enjoy!


Warm regards,

Hot Wheels Monster Truck - Multifunctional Laptop Case

Hello! It's Karen from Creamcraft Goods, sharing my latest project for licensed Hot Wheels Monster Trucks fabric by Riley Blake Designs - Multifunctional Laptop Case. If you are looking for the perfect boy fabric, this is it! The fabric is vibrant, fun, and has perfect images of these spunky trucks! When I saw this collection, I was so excited, more so for my little boy Jack. He is a Hot Wheels Monster Truck aficionado and I had no trouble at all collecting props for my photo spread! Jack carries his laptop with him to school and he was in need of a sturdy case that could be placed in his backpack.

I added outer pockets so he could keep organized with his school supplies. I created a clear and mesh pocket so he can easily access his supplies. It opens and closes with a snap button. I added sturdy cotton webbing handles so he can place the case it in our out of his backpack.

The opening for the laptop case is easily accessible with a zipper. I also made an inner pocket inside so it can hold loose papers and such. The case is fully padded so his laptop stays nice and secure while inside.

I hope you enjoyed my project for Hot Wheels Monster Trucks! The collection is coming out soon, so check your favorite fabric or quilt shops to see if they will carry it.

Happy Sewing!

Art Journal - Tri Fold Journal Folio and Journaling Tote


Hello! It’s Karen from Creamcraft Goods. Today I’m sharing my project from Janet Wecker Frisch’s of Great Joy Studio newest collection – Art Journal. This collection is right up my alley as I’m an everyday journal writer, ephemera collector, and junk journal maker too. This collection combines Janet’s signature vintage style using vintage prints, text, and images which are simply beautiful!

I used the Flower Press Patch Panel and the Journal Ledger Records print in the collection and made a Trifold Journal Folio that opens up into thirds. The first pocket can hold tools, pens and pencils, or a small notebook. For the second pocket, I used clear vinyl and made smaller pockets to hold small things like ephemera, stickers, small scissors, and other things. The third pocket opens to where you can place a journal into or you can put loose papers, art, or more ephemera. I added a leather button closure to hold it all together.

I used a neat tool to stabilize the front cover of the journal in an oilcloth finish – Heat N’Bond Liquid Vinyl from Thermoweb. It makes the journal cover more stable and and studier as I’m sure I will be tossing this journal around in my studio or tote bags when I’m on the go. You simply paint it on and wait for it to dry, iron, and sew!

I also made a Journaling Tote to go along with the Journal. I added multiple pockets inside and out to store all your journaling tools such as pens, ephemera, scissors, and more. I added leather handles to keep it held together nice and sturdy.

I hope you enjoyed my projects for Art Journal and that it inspires your sewing projects. Art Journal is arriving into stores now, so check your favorite quilt or fabric shops to see if they carry it!

Happy Sewing!
