You Rule Zipper Bag & Snaptab Combo!

Good Morning! We have a new bag and snaptab combo for you today.  You Rule! Ruler zipper bag and School Glue Snaptab.  The bag comes in 2 sizes, 5x7 & 6x10.  The 5x7 bag will hold pens, short pencils & mechanical pencils.  The larger 6x10 file is meant for #2 pencils, which are much longer.  The bag includes exposed and enclosed seam options.  I made one of each for the samples.  

School Glue snaptab is free with the purchase of the bag.  Add both items to your cart and use code SCHOOLGLUE at checkout.  Sale will run 8/11/17- 8/13/17@Midnight EST. 

For the tab I used white glitter vinyl from Punkbroidery.  You can find that HERE.  The yellow vinyl on the bag is also from Punkbroidery which can be found HERE. Zippers are from Zipit! Use code PARKERONTHEPORCH and receive 10% off your order.  Lastly some misc links. Kam snaps &  Lobster clasps

What kind of felt is that?

Good morning! I am constantly asked where I buy my felt from.  I exclusively use Benzie wool blend felt. If you are in the Chicago area she also has a brick and mortar store!  You can find her on her website HERE.  She also has an etsy shop HERE
I first found Benzie searching color palettes. I love that the have pre-coordinated sets!
You can also buy it by the sheet,  half yard, yard and bolt AND it's a great price. 
Stop by her website.  If you order tell her Parker on the Porch sent ya !

Our Supply List

Our Supply List

Good morning friends. It has been about a minute since I've posted on my blog.  I am dusting it of to share tutorials and handy links to my shop Parker on the Porch. So for today I am going to go over my supply list with links.  Most of these are affiliate links.  Affiliate links help me earn money when you use them to purchase supplies. The money from these purchases help keep my business going.
I recommend software for everyone.  It will help you place names, customize your items and see the stitch outs before you sew. I suggest EMBRILLIANCE it's a great program that will grow with you!
I shop vinyl almost exclusively from My Punkbroidery.  Amy is great, please check out her website! 
I use Kamsnaps for all my snaptabs, cord keepers and ITH projects.  You can buy directly from KamSnap.  I highly recommend using a table press for your snaps.  Especially if you will be selling the items you make.  Size 20 snaps are the standard. 
Amazon also has a good selection of starter kits with a hand press.  You can find some HERE
I get my zippers from Zipit on etsy.  She is great and FAST to ship!  Use code: POP10 and save 10% everytime!
I have 2 machines I use.  The Janome 400E and the Brother PE770.  Both fantastic Machines.  The 770 is great for beginners and the 400E is a good next step! 
 
I buy a lot of my general supplies straight from Amazon.  Here are several that I get the most questions about.
If you have any questions for feel the list needs some additions let me know! I will gladly update my post. Join us on Facebook for videos and chitter chatter.

How to make an in the hoop Snaptab (Key Fob)

Hey gang! Tonight we shot a live video in our Facebook group.  If you are a member you can re-watch it HERE.  If not scroll down to our YouTube link to the video.  We discussed how to make an in the hoop (ITH) snaptab.  Also known as key chain or key fob.  In the hoop items are super popular and sell very well at craft shows and are just super rad gifts!!!

 

 

Tonight we ran two designs.  First up we ran the Seashell snaptab.  A simple design and versatile for the summer. 

 

 

Our second design was one of our very popular filled mermaid snaptab.  A touch different then the first, but just as simple to make. 


Here is a list of supplies you will need.  I encourage you to watch the video and get started! Some of these links are affiliate links.  Affiliate links help me earn money when you use them to purchase supplies. The money from these purchases help keep my business going.
