My mother has a whole slew of germaphobic-based suggestions including:

I could go on for pages. Some of her advice I take to heart and other bits of it seem like irrational mom/germaphobic suggestions that I simply don’t want/don’t have time to add to my daily routine.

However, when she made a set of shoe bags for traveling for me, I was hooked. I hadn’t given much thought to the fact that I was packing my ‘dirty’ shoes in a suitcase with my clean clothes. I hadn’t really thought about the fact that the soles of my shoes had touched the surface of so many streets. As my mom handed me the shoe bags she’d made for me she asked mefunny pillow cases, “Would you rub your dress or your underwear for that matter on the asphalt of a parking lot?” OF COURSE I WOULDN’T! And…there began my love for shoe bags.

Aside from keeping the items in your suitcase clean and organized, these shoe bags are super simple and quick to sew. Plus they’re a great way to use smaller cuts?of fabric sitting around your sewing room. I can’;t wait to pack up my shoes in my new shoe bags for our Craftcation: Business Makers Conference in the spring!

1. Fold your fabric in half with the right/printed sides facing in and measure and cut an 18 inch x 14 inch rectangle.

2. On one side measure and mark about 1.5 inches from the top. This will be the opening where your tie comes out.

3. Starting at your mark for your tie, sew around the length of the shoe bag leaving the top (one of the shorter sides) open. I used the edge of my presser foot as my seam guide allowance meaning that the edge of my fabric was at the edge of the presser foot.

4. At the top where your tie will be fold over the edge of the fabric in a skinny pie shape then fold it again. Sew it down.

5. Repeat step four for the other side of the tie area.

6. Fold over the top of the bag about ? of an inch then iron the fold. Repeat this one more time so that you have a nice hem with the raw edge of the fabric folded in and not visible.

7. If you’re using bias tape: fold it?in?half and sew down the length of it.

8. Place your sewn bias tape or ribbon inside the fold of the hem at the top of your bag.

9. Start on one of the side where the tie comes out and sew the fold down with the tie inside the channel until you reach the other end of the bag where the other side of the tie comes out. I used the edge of my presser foot as my seam guide allowance meaning that the edge of my fabric was at the edge of the presser foot.

10. Turn your shoe bag right side out.

Years ago when I first got back into quilting, I did it because I wanted to learn how to make a baby quilt. I think that making a baby quilt is one of the main reasons that people pick up quilting. They are great quilting projects for beginners since they are small and relatively quick to sew.

We already knew we loved Philadelphia studio Edgewood Made after carrying their stunning Black Wood Board, Cheese Cutter and Cheese Knife, but then we saw their mirrors.

For all of you who followed us on Facebook the last four days, I hope you enjoyed the inspirational breeze from Ventura, California, where the second DIY conference Craftcation was held. As the photos speak for themselves, you can tell it was a blast!
