Navy and Blush Key Wristlets

 If you're needing a quick and easy gift packed with charm, look no further! These little key wristlets work up so fast! I made these particular ones for the secretaries at my sons' school today for "Administrative Professionals Day". I bought some lanyard hardware in bulk to have on hand for such occasions. I really am a hoarder, it's true! Neat and tidy, but a hoarder! LOL!






 These are the fabrics that I chose that fit the color scheme of my entire project. I just love how they work together, even though I found them on opposite sides of the fabric shelves. I really would love putting collections together! 







I made two each of the three fabrics. The cute little tags were made using some stamps and paper that I have had for years, but the sentiment worked perfectly for this particular project.




 If you'd like to find out more about the rest of the project you can read it about it HERE. Each wristlet was made using a 4 inch wide strip of fabric. I used the entire width of fabric which makes at least 3 wristlets. You can make yours longer or shorter depending on what you like better.
 Fold the strip in half and press. Then fold each end in to the middle crease line and press. Then fold that in half. Stitch along the loose edge. I just use the inside of my presser foot as my guide. Repeat on the closed edge as well. Thread your lanyard hardware onto the fabric, wrong sides out. Sew the end shut. Turn the fabric out, line the lanyard hardware up into the two cut ends and stitch shut. So fast and easy!








You can see the entire gift here. Super fast and so sweet! Thanks for stopping by today and visit again soon! Follow me on Instagram @kellylunceford

Dots and Damask Rag Quilt

As promised, here are the photos of the rag quilt that I made for my baby. It has been sitting here done for over a week now, but the sky has been so hazy that getting a good photograph has proven to be tough. Today, the sun has peeked through for a while so I took the opportunity to snap a few photos.
I have a bajillion blankets from my oldest, but of course the new baby needs new things that are just for him. I had a lot of fun sewing this and picking the fabrics. I asked the sales lady at the quilt shop if the patterns looked too girly and she assured me that they didn't. Now that it is done, I don't think it looks girly. They had the same fabrics but with pink and brown and I am itching to make a girl one as well. I don't know of anyone who is having a girl, but I could always make it and save it for the next baby girl.
This particular quilt is 8 squares across by 8 squares down, rather than the 9 that I normally do. I was one square off from having enough to do 9, …

Corduroy Rag Quilt

I can't believe it has been over a year since I have posted anything here. The funny thing is that the project I am sharing today is also a rag quilt. My SIL is having a baby girl in the next week or 2, so I wanted to get some things made for her before I began on my own baby projects. I am hoping to post a bit more here since I have some fun projects lined up to make. I don't know what it is about babies that gets me motivated to sew. I also have a few Holiday projects that I am hoping to get done as well.

I purchased this baby wale corduroy a couple of months ago at Hobby and Lobby and fell in love. I wasn't sure how well it would work up into a rag quilt, but the results were fabulous. As I mentioned in my previous post, flannel has a tendency to pill, which drives me nuts. The corduroy is just as soft and perfect as it was prior to washing. The only "complaint" I have with the corduroy is the mess that it makes. I was covered in tiny pieces of fabric, my craf…

Handmade Handwarmers Tutorial

Hello and welcome to Thimbles and Thread, where today, I will be sharing a quick tutorial on a fun wintertime craft I enjoy making for family and friends. To start off, you will need to gather your supplies: Fun and festive fabric, rotary cutter, self-healing mat and quilting ruler, scissors, sewing machine, coordinating or matching thread, funnel and rice. I always like to have some Christmas music playing while I'm crafting, but that step is optional! Ha ha! 








You will want to cut your squares to your desired width. This year I cut them into 4 1/2 inch squares. I've made them 4 inch squares in the past.






The red warmers on top are 4 inches versus 4 1/2 inch warmers underneath. I thought I would show you both so you could choose which size you'd prefer. 4 inches is perfect size to clasp in your hand, but I ended up liking the bigger ones in the end.







Here you can see the difference between the 2 sizes before they are sewn.






Once you have your squares cut, you will need to place t…
