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 !
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: PARKERONTHEPORCH and save 10% everytime!
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. www.facebook.com/groups/parkerontheporch You can find my designs at www.parkerontheporch.com
Hey gang! Tonight we shot a live video in our Facebook group. If you are a member you can re-watch itHERE. 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 theSeashell snaptab. A simple design and versatile for the summer.
Our second design was one of our very popularfilled mermaid snaptab. A touch different then the first, but just as simple to make.
