1. Use the glitter glue to color in your charm. Set aside to dry while you are creating your bracelet.

2. Create a Double Bead Ladder Bracelet. Watch this video to see how.

3. Before you start creating your bracelet, layout your beads in the order they go. Make sure to have all your alphabet beads facing the correct direction on the table so you know how to place them on the loom.

4. When you are finished with your design, place your charm on the jump ring and add it to the middle of your bracelet!

A big thank you to Brietta for all of her Frozen inspired bracelets! Happy looming and we will see you next week with another rubber band bracelet design!

Fabric Wine Gift Bag

Create this simple wine bag to bring along to your next fall dinner party! Use our new fall or Halloween fabrics to make your hostess gift even more special! 

Add chalk labels, trims, or ribbon to give the bag a personalized look!

Fabric Holiday Wine Gift Bag @craftsavvy #craftwarehouse #sewing #gift #bag #diy


1/3 yard each of a main fabric, lining and fusible fleece. (If you need a little wider bag, purchase
3/8 yard of each. You will have enough fabric to make 3 bags but only enough fleece for 2 bags.)
½ yard ribbon to tie bag closed
Optional: trims, chalkboard cloth, duck cloth, iron on letters and designs

Fabric Holiday Wine Gift Bag @craftsavvy #craftwarehouse #sewing #gift #bag #diy


All seams are ¼”.

1. Cut each piece-main, lining and fleece to 18” x 12”.

2. Fuse fleece to main fabric.

3. If adding a label on the bag, add it to the main fabric now. I cut my labels 4”x4”. Position it about 4” up from the bottom and 1 ½” from the side edge. Stitch or fuse into place. With right side together, sew the lining to the main fabric along the top edge. Fold the main fabric and lining in half lengthwise and stitch this long side.

4. Leaving this tube inside out, place your bottle on each corner and trace around it. Trim the excess fabric.

5. Sew the curves and bottom seam on the main fabric. Turn right side out. By hand or machine, stitch the lining bottom closed. Push the lining inside, press the top of the bag opening. If desired, top stitch ¼” from top edge. Insert your bottle and tie the top with a ribbon, raffia or piece of coordinating fabric.

* All Fall and Halloween Cotton Prints 30% off from October 2nd - October 14th, 2014

Frozen Inspired Snowflake Rubber Band Bracelet

Last week I shared a new Frozen inspired rubber band bracelet that I loved by our "rubber band bracelet guru', Brietta, from our Salem Craft Warehouse store! Today, she has given me another and I have to say this one is my favorite by far!

Frozen Inspired Snowflake Rubber Band Bracelet #loombands #rubberbandbracelet #rainbowloom #flowerpower #frozen

I love how she adds beads around the snowflake charm. Each snowflake sits into the design of the bracelet almost looking like it is a part of the whole loom process but it isn't! All you need to do is create a the bracelet and add the charms and beads afterwards!

Frozen Inspired Snowflake Rubber Band Bracelet #loombands #rubberbandbracelet #rainbowloom #flowerpower #frozen


Loom Bands (Light blue, Blue, and White)
3 Snowflake Charms
Strand of Crystals (in the color of your choice, this one is done with white)
Clear Elasticity Beadalon Elastic Beading Thread

Frozen Inspired Snowflake Rubber Band Bracelet #loombands #rubberbandbracelet #rainbowloom #flowerpower #frozen


1. Create a "Flower Power" rubber band bracelet.

2. Thread your beads on to the Elasticity thread making sure there is a knot at the end of your thread. Place the other end on a needle.

3. Place charm in place on bracelet. Do steps 4-5 for each charm.

4.. Holding the charm in place, start using the needle to help you weave the beads in and out of the motif on the bracelet. Make sure to use the needle to weave the beads around the charm so that it will stay in place.

5. Knot the thread several times when finished in the back. A great tip to keep that knot in place is by putting a bit of clear nail polish on it to seal. When dry, cut the threads ends.

Join us next week with our last "Frozen" inspired rubber band bracelet!
