Eclectic Elements Blog Hop and Giveaway

This Giveaway is over!
The winner is Stitchin at Home
If you click on my blog header above it will take you to my latest post!
Thank you for stopping by! Lisa

Welcome to
In The Boon Docks
for the Eclectic Elements Blog Hop!
I have used Tim Holtz's products for years!
He has created everything
from scrapbooking paper, ink, to fabric!
So once I started sewing and realized
he was designing fabric
I bought a 10" layer cake of Eclectic Elements and kept it.
I knew one day I would make something
for my husband or grandson.
It is a unisex fabric making it great for boys and men.

When Nicki contacted me about this blog hop
I just had to say "YES"!
Then I started thinking what could I make
my guys for Valentines Day!
It has to be useful so it doesn't get tossed
into a drawer, never to be seen again!

Thank you Nicki @

Sunshine Reflections
for inviting me to participate and organizing
this hop you have done such a great job!
I cannot wait to see what everyone has created!


For my Grandson,
I decided I would make a pouch for his headphones!

With a little Velcro to close it!

I think it will work out great instead of just throwing them in his backpack! These are great headphones for kids! We went through 5 sets of earbuds before I found these Sony ones on sale!

I quilted each bag with batting,
using a decorative stitch
and Aurifil 50 wt. #1154 (Dusty Orange),
I love this color!
I used Aurifil 50 wt. #1158 (Med Gray)
to sew both projects together!
I love Aurifil threads,
they always have the color
I want to make a project "POP"!

All Fabric: Eclectic Elements, Tim Holtz, Coats
Quilting Thread: Aurifil #1154 (Dusty Orange)
Sewing Thread: Aurifil #1158 (Med Gray)


For my Husband,
I made this great pouch
for his beard trimmer things
(I hate to call them things
but it has a lot of little parts and they all fit)!
