My Grocery Bags Are Available In My Etsy Shop!

7 Aug

Do to numerous requests for my Grocery Bags already made, I decided I would give them a try. I had lots of fun trying these different waterproof canvas prints and solids.

Get ahead start on your Christmas shopping. Last year I gave all my adult children one with a grocery card…a perfect gift. I’m not keeping a large inventory, so I won’t be making more until I’ve sold out of what I have listed. You can purchase them here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/Pegsgottado

New Sewing Patterns For The College Student

6 Jun
College Dorm Laundry Bag Digital Sewing Pattern

My niece’s daughter, Hannah, just graduated high school and is going to college this fall. Boy, does time fly!

Wanting to sew her something, I came up with this Laundry Bag with a front pocket for holding laundry detergent and fabric softener sheets. Her college colors are red, white and black, so this red and white polka dot and black fabric was perfect!

To make it strong and easy to carry, I added grommets for the drawstring closure and 1 1/2″ wide webbing handle with a Dring for easy hanging. The finished bag measures 29″ X 12 3/4″ and holds A LOT…I stuffed it with a king size comforter for the photos, LOL!

I’m sure she’ll get lots of use from this!

You can purchase the sewing pattern HERE.

Closet Hanger Safe

You gotta be careful these days, so I thought I’d make Hannah this Closet Hanger Safe for her to keep her money, jewelry and other important items out of sight. It’s a quick and easy sew and uses scrap fabric or fat quarters.

This Clothes Hanger Safe has two zippered pockets, measures 16″ X 9″ open and has a Velcro closure to keep it secure on the hanger.

There’s also an optional ribbon/cording that’s attached to the back so it can fit all size hangers.

I made myself one, of course, but don’t tell my husband… don’t want him snooping around my closet, hahaha!

You can purchase the sewing pattern HERE!

My Warm and Cozy Fleece Cover Up

20 Jan
My Warm and Cozy Fleece Cover Up

Here in Ohio, we just got hit with an ice storm! It’s cold and blowing…perfect weather to wear my super warm and cozy Fleece Cover Up and relax and read a good book. For the FREE how-to tutorial, I posted the pdf file at the end of this post.

The Cover Up goes over your head, has side armholes, a large front pocket, on which I added a reverse applique, and mini pompom decorative trim.

The back hangs down 20″ and has a neck opening. The Cover Up is meant to be worn sitting or lounging, so there’s really no reason to have a long back…it saves on the amount of fleece you’ll need too:)

Here’s my grand daughter, Kinzley, in her “Princess” Fleece Cover Up I made her. I also made her mom one with three hearts (one for each child) on the pocket. She keeps it in their camper for sitting around the campfire…Great idea!

Goodbye Craftsy…Hello ETSY!

2 Jan

Since Craftsy cut most of my sewing patterns at the end of December, I decided to open an Etsy Shop. It saddens me that I have to start all over, but that’s how it is. I’m grateful for the 3 years I had with Craftsy.

I will be gradually adding the sewing patterns that were cut, so please bookmark my Etsy Shop and check back. HAPPY SEWING!!

Last of the grocery bag Christmas gifts!

18 Dec

Well, I just finished sewing the last grocery bag for Christmas! I had so much fun sewing them in the fabric each person had picked out…except for

My husband’s Cleveland Browns tailgate bag!

I added a pocket on each end, and filled them with cooking and eating utensils,  cutting board, knife, wipes and foil sheets.

This is for my son,

These are for my granddaughters mom and my sister.

My sewing is FINALLY done!

Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year!

Quick and Easy Christmas Gifts Sewing Patterns

Wintertime means cold hands and these two sewing patterns will help keep those cold hands warm!

The Ice Scraper Mitt will keep your hand nice and warm with its fleece lining, PLUS it’s waterproof too.

The Handwarmer will keep those hands nice and toasty.  Just activate a handwarmer and place it inside for hours of warmth.  Kids love these!

Both of these items are perfect for embroidering for a personalized gift.

You can purchase both these sewing patterns from my Etsy Shop for $3.00!

My Reusable Grocery Bag Set Sewing Pattern

27 Nov

I just finished sewing and posting these TWO reusable grocery bag patterns I made for my daughter for Christmas.  She and her family won’t be able to make it home for Christmas so I needed to get them done and shipped…along with a grocery gift card to help her fill them up with :)

 The larger grocery bag measures 20” X 14 1/2” X 10”, and can easily hold 5 -6 bags worth of groceries, which cuts down on the number of trips into the house.

The smaller grocery bag measures 18” X 13” X 8” and is constructed with a thermal lining to keep all your cold and frozen foods cold!

Both reusable grocery bags pictured were constructed from just 1 yard solid and 1 yard print waterproof canvas from FWDfabrics.com (the BEST waterproof canvas). 


The easy to follow step by step photo instructions makes these bags a quick sew. Perfect for gift giving!  You can purchase the pattern at my Etsy Shop.

Happy Sewing!
