Download the Treat Bag Topper Pattern from link in the materials list above. Cut out all of your tag templates.
Use scrap pieces of fabric from Fabric D and E， and cut strips of fabric big enough to fit your inside template pieces. Also cut Steam-A-Seam for each piece but cut slightly smaller. Fuse Steam-A-Seam to wrong side of fabric. Trace your inside template on the right side of your fabric with a fabric pen. Cut out pieces.
Repeat this same process for your outer tag cutting two of each template with the remaining fabric.
Cut out one of each outer template in Kraftex or cardstock paper.
Peel off backing of Steam-A-Seam and fuse to the middle of all your outer tag pieces， centered in the middle. Next peel off the backing of your outer tag pieces and fuse to Kraftex.

For our To/From Tag we wanted to add a fun decorative stitch with Aurifil pumpkin color thread. We used stitch #66 on my machine.
For the Pumpkin tag we stitch around and around in a oval shape and stitched back and forth to create the steam. Be creative making any design you want. Using the Open embroidery foot #20 may help for you to see your work a bit better as you are sewing.？Next fuse your back fabric tags to the back of your tag. Make a small hole punch big enough to fit your eyelet. Using your eyelet setter， set eyelet.
Cut string， ribbon or cord at your desired length， and thread through hole. Tie a knot and clip excess string.？And voilà! It’s time to attach it to your gift !

Happy Spring, machine quilting fans! I am Lori Kennedy from LoriKennedyQuilts.com.?They say you can’t count your chickens before they’re hatched, but you can count on the baby chicks motif to add charm to your next quilt! Stitch one baby chick in the center of a square block or stitch a row of chicks to create a fun border. For a more whimsical design, add a few flowers and an eggshell or two. Doodle the motif several times to develop the muscle memory for smoother stitching and to determine the best scale for the chicks in your project!
Obviously, lighting is a pretty important factor in every room. But we say the bathroom is where lighting matters most. After all, it’s where you apply your makeup and where he shaves. It’s also where you see yourself in the mirror every morning and again in the evening before bedtime. At the sake of sounding vain, don’t you want that image to be its best? Well, then you really need the right lighting.
