The Best Blogger Crafts: No-Sew Fabric Flower Bag

the-best-blogger-crafts-banner

This month we’re celebrating our bloggers and their creativity. In January 2014 at CHA, bloggers gathered at our CHA Networking Event to meet companies and to work more with us here FaveCrafts. After getting a bunch of crafty swag from the event, they set out to make projects out of the materials they were given. We’re featuring these projects all month with giveaways so you can make your own versions of their wonderful crafts.

No-Sew Fabric Flower Bag

No Sew Fabric Flower BagSave up those fabric scraps and breath new life into a plain bag. There’s no need for a needle and thread when you’re working on the fabric flower pattern used for this No-Sew Fabric Flower Bag. Instead, grab some fabric adhesive and paint and start bringing your flower to life. This project is perfect for beginners and best of all, you can make a bunch in one sitting.

todays-winner

Thank you all for participating in yesterday’s giveaway! Congratulations to Jeanne K. who answered “With arthritic hands at 70+, almost everything is hard to cut, so good scissors like Fiskars is most important and more than one pair is of equal importance because of having a “senior moment” when one places them down somewhere or other.” We know the feeling and we love Fiskars too. Enjoy your prize!

FaveQuilts Giveaway: Fiskars Amplify Shear Set

At FaveQuilts, we often talk about how important choosing the right materials is when it comes to working on a quilt. You deserve the best of the best when it comes to the tools of the trade in order to make the quilting process even easier, and who better to produce the most top-of-the-line quilting products than Fiskars. Their new Amplify Shears Collection includes a series of quality scissors designed to adjust according to you and your fabric. Just within the Amplify Shears Set, you can see just how much these products can do for your quilting.

Fiskars Amplify Shears Set

What makes the scissors included in the Amplify Shear Set so unique is the way they adjust. Nothing is more frustrating than having to hack away at your fabric because you can’t get a clean cut. Fiskars is making this struggle a thing of the past, as each of their scissors is designed with a torsion bar and floating blade tang which work together to control the amount of energy used throughout the scissors, as well as the angle at which the blade is positioned. This means when your fabric is thicker, your scissors will be able to adjust accordingly so you can make a clean cut immediately. Just imagine how much cleaner your cuts will look now that you don’t have loose threads and jagged edges due to repeat cutting.

The Amplify Shears Set provides you with not one, but three of these quality shears with a soft-touch grip and stainless steel blades perfect for making smooth cuts. You’ll have a 6″ blade for when you need to make more intricate cuts, a standard 8″ size that’s sure to come in handy in your crafting and daily life, and a large pair of 10″ shears for when you need to tackle a large piece of fabric or thicker material.

You can always trust Fiskars to provide quilters with the latest technology to make even the smallest steps seem that much easier. Even if you’re just an occasional crafter, these scissors are sure to make any prep work you need seem like a breeze. We want to help you get started by giving away a free Fiskars Amplify Shears Set. You can enter to win on our site through September 24th!
