25 of my Favorite Gifts to Make Using Cricut


Christmas is looming ever closer and I am so ready! I mean, I'm really not....I don't even have our tree up, but I am so ready for school break and the coziness of everyone being home with lots of hot cocoa and mini marshmallows, a good movie to watch, and no where we need to go!
Although I do have the majority of presents bought (not wrapped, lol) I do have a few I have to finish up for teachers, neighbors, and white elephant gifts. So if you're like me and still needing some idea's for those last minute gifts, here's 25 (plus a few) of my favorite DIY gifts you can make easily using the Cricut Machine! First project is my Christmas Pajamas. My girls still wear these shirts!

Easy Knit Jersey Block Throw Quilt

My kids love snuggling up in little throw blankets and quilts and with Christmas just around the corner, I figured this would be a perfect little gift for each of the kids to go along with their Christmas Pj's! Especially when I can use my knit scraps to make it too!

Riley Blake Designs - Dream World


Guys! I literally think this is my FAVORITE quilt EVER! This line is just stunning and I wanted to make sure to do it justice! The line is called Dream World and is by the insanely creative and talented Emily Winfield Martin for Riley Blake Designs. It is just so magical and fun. I'm really wanting to buy the art prints that go along with this line to hang up!

Michael Miller Fabrics - Living in the Wild Log Cabin Mini Quilt


Thanksgiving is quite literally just around the corner! This time of year we always try to reflect on what we're most grateful for and one thing I am very thankful for is when we were able to get into a program to build our house and become home owners. It was life changing for us, and although it definitely held many challenges, I will always be so grateful that we were able to get in. We moved from that home a couple years ago and my family has so many good memories of it! Because of that, I decided to make a Log Cabin mini quilt pattern featuring Michael Millers, Living in the Wild, line!

Riley Blake Designs - Pemberley


I have been totally crushing on all of Citrus and Mint Designs lines for Riley Blake. Her newest line is no exception! Pemberley is so sweet and has the most gorgeous hues of green and blue and pink.
The print my girls were most excited about was the Violins.

Riley Blake Designs - In The Forest


We're to the very crazy, busy time of the year and I am just that: crazy busy! With school, before school activities, and just life in general I haven't felt like I've been able to have nearly as much sewing time as I'd like. Also, the weather is so amazing right now. I know there are plenty of places that it's freezing, but It's just cooled off from our high summer temps and has been absolutely perfect. So the idea of staying indoors has not been a popular choice right now.

I am so excited about Little Lizard King's first fabric line, Little Sewists for Michael Miller Fabrics. I've loved their patterns for years and a fabric line is just perfect!
I ended up making two things for today's post. First is a peek at my first quilt pattern that I'm working on called Sporadic Snippets, and the second is a tutorial on how to make the Brighton Mini Quilt into a pillow cover.
So lets get started!

Riley Blake Designs - It's the Berries


I know I sound like a broken record, but I really can't believe how fast time is flying by. Each year feels like it goes by a little faster than the last. We only have 11 days of Summer truly left and the crazy part of the year is just a blink of an eye away.
No matter my attempts at trying to beat the holiday rush I always seem to get caught up in it. That doesn't stop me from continuing to try every year to stay on top of things though!

Which brings us to today's post! It's the Berries by Riley Blake Designs is out in stores and it is the PERFECT holiday line!
