Christmas Pin Wheel Table Runner

This is the first time I have ever done pin wheels and even though not all of the points match up I think it is very cute!

I used some Moda Figgy Pudding Fabric for the pin wheels and a cheap white on white print that I got from wal-mart for the front. The backing fabric is from Hobby Lobby. It is a super cute brown and blue Christmas print. I got it half off because I bought it so close to Christmas time!

I got the idea from the blog Pleasant Home and also used their tutorial for Prairie points. I love the points. They are very easy and so cute!

Cold Feet!

Well, yesterday at 5:30 am the snow started. It didn't stop until about 8 this morning. Twenty Four inches of the white stuff fell over one day. So, Yes I do have cold feet but that is just because we went out and shoveled for quite awhile this morning. We are supposed to be on our way to Florida right now but Mother Nature had other plans for us.
Here is a tutorial on how to cure those cold feet issues!
This tutorial is so easy and so warm! I how ever made one small change to the first one that I made. I use feed corn in mine instead of the rice. I have been told that it retains the heat better. I warm mine in the microwave for 3 minutes on high and out come a bag that is nice and toasty!
I have also made these in a few other sizes. They come out great no matte what!

Art Tote

Over the last 3 days I have been working on a new sewing pattern that I bought about a month ago! It is an art tote pattern!
When I first saw the pattern, I knew I had to have it! It was just so adorable!
It is a PDF pattern and it was emailed to me within 24 hours! It was only $6! That part made me very happy!
First off, let me say I was extremely happy with the final turn out of the bag! It is super cute and it is very sturdy! The pockets look great and using the 3 different fabrics makes it even prettier!
The pattern however at times is confusing! Make sure you read through it first! I read through it and still made a few mistakes in cutting the pieces! You have to print the patterns from your computer and tape them together before cutting your fabric. Make sure that when you cut your pocket pieces you cut 2 of patterns pieces D, E, and F. The are labeled when you print them out and they say cut 1. I was very frustrated when I was finally to the steps of sewing and realized I had to go back to cutting.
This bag is made of several different layers of stabilizer. It has the outer and inner fabrics but it also has a layer of interfacing, a layer of batting, and a layer of heavy weight fusible interfacing. At two different points during the sewing process you are told to clip your seams to a 1/4 of an inch. This is very difficult because you are cutting through 2 layers of batting, 2 layers of interfacing and the layers of fabric. My hands were sore after that!

I was excited to work with the heavy weight fusible interfacing. Both of its sides are fusible! One side is rough with the glue and the other side has a peel off plastic covering. It was easy to work with. It comes with its own instructions and the pattern also gives instructions on using this. With this tote you add this stabilizer after the outer portion of the bag is constructed.

Overall, I am super happy with the tote. The little problems with the pattern are easy to overlook after you see your finished product! And they even let you sell your finished product.

My Favorite

This blog is all about my favorite bag! It is my ACU Pleat Bag! I made it about a month ago! I am an Army Wife and I just love to see spouse carry around their support for their husband! One of my favorite parts about this bag is the yellow bow! It is completely removable! It is a french barrette that fits right on the strap! You can take it or leave it or wear it in your hair! I also love the pleats on the front! They just add a cute little gathering puffy look! The bag also had 2 Velcro fuzzy tapes! This is so that you can attach your family members name tape! I like to do the name tape on one side and the army tape on the other side!
The bag closes with a magnetic snap! I love this snaps! They are so easy to add to the bag as you are putting it together! The lining is so pretty! Yellow means support, so support your family and support your country!

This bag is for sale in my Etsy shop right now! It is only $32 and that even includes the bow! Shipping is only $3! If you are interested in looking at more pictures go to joliejunebugboutique.etsy.com !

Welcome To Jolies's Junebug Boutique

Hi everyone! You are now reading the blog for Jolie's Junebug Boutique! We are a small business specializing in hand sewn creations! We have an Etsy Shop and we also take custom orders!
This blog is going to be used to show you what I am working on, what I want to work on, and what I have made!
First off alittle bit about me! My name is Teresa Satterwhite! I am a stay at home mom of one with one on the way! My daughter is Jolie and she is 2! She is quite the little spitfire! Our family has one more on the way. The next baby is due March 8th. We are very excited. My husband, Dean, is in the army. He has gone through 3 deployments and finally gets to stay home for awhile. We also have one dog and one cat!
I started sewing when I was in high school! I took home ec., home ec. 2, and then I was the teachers aid for a home ec. class. Before my husbands last deployment, I went out and bought a sewing machine. At that time our daughter was barely a week old and I really need something to keep my occupied during the next 13 months of his deployment! That is when I started Jolie's Junebug Boutique. Purses are my favorite item to sew, followed by little girls clothing! We also make quilts, scrubs, shopping cart covers, crayon rolls, art purses and many other items!
During the period of this blog I hope to meet new people, find new customers, and maybe even write my own tutorial! I hope that everyone enjoys this blog as much I do!
