Handmade with Love Super Bundle + My Makes

Craftsy

Finally it’s here!  I’ve been so excited about this bundle since I first saw it on the bundle list this year.  I love almost all of the bundles from Ultimate Bundles but this one is my jam!  I’m going to tell you all about the Handmade with Love Super Bundle {great name!} & show you what I’ve already made from the bundle.  And yes, I downloaded everything from this bundle – a first for me!  : D

This will replace my Monthly Roundup post for November.  Most of my extra makes are for Christmas presents & I don’t want to spoil the surprises!  Some of these makes will be for presents too, but it’s not as obvious who they are for!  ; )  This Friday will be a Teadoddles Talks from a special friend of mine!  Yay!  Okay, let’s dig into this bundle!

P.S. This is a really long post, so you may just want to look at the pictures & then check out the bundle on your own.  I’ll never know!  ; )

Handmade with Love Super Bundle

First I’m going to give you the important details – sale dates, price, free Craftsy class bonus!  Yes!

Now, I’m going to break down what’s in the bundle.  Usually I just touch on certain things in a bundle, but as a maker, I’m all into the details!  I felt like other makers would be too, so I’m listing all the things in the bundle.  Then I’ll have show & tell about what I’ve started & what I’m going to start.  Of course there will be pictures since makers are definitely visual people!

Embroidery

I haven’t had a chance to start making all the things I want to make – sound familiar?  Most of the things I’ve started have come from the embroidery section, since I’ve recently had a resurgence of “hand sew love”.  Some of the pictures will relate back to this group but I’ll be sure to note where it came from!  : )

  • 23 Easy-to-Make Christmas Ornaments: Three eBooks in One! by Erica Hite ($14.00)  {these are made from felt & whip up quickly}
  • Embroidery Pattern Set by Pumora ($94.00) {so many awesome patterns!}

These are 9 of the ornaments in the 23 Easy-to-Make Christmas Ornaments: Three eBooks in One! by Erica Hite.  I stitched up most of them on the drives to Atlanta this past week.  They still need the backs & hangers!

  • Lovely Liberty Cushion: A Needleturn Applique Project by Emma Jean Jansen ($10.50) {Australian based fabric & quilt designer}

This is my Lovely Liberty Cushion all cut out & pinned down.  Now I thought I may try needleturn applique, but I’m just going to stitch this down on my machine!  I used 3 Tilda fabrics sent to me from some sweet Australian friends.  The fourth is one that was in my stash & I don’t know what designer it is, but it blended in well.
