According to Pantone one of the top colors for Fall 2017 is Shaded Spruce.

PANTONE 19-4524 Shaded Spruce

This is a green you might see in the forest – sheltering and protective as evergreen trees.

Members of the Etsy Christmas In July Team have been inspired by the color Shaded Spruce! They have created items in their shops reflecting this inspiration! Here are a few!

Barbara from MermaidsHatbox says:

This hat is handmade of a warm boiled wool fabric in Shaded Spruce. Shaded Spruce is one of my favorite colors for accessories during the cold seasons. It’s a warm autumn and winter color and it fits perfect with other colors like brown and black.

Desert Dabbler from DesertDabbler says:

The green stones in this bracelet are Moss Agate. The color is a great match for Pantone’s Shaded Spruce. When I made the bracelet it reminded me of a day at the creek. Walking along a tree lined creed is so relaxing. The agate is hand-knapped, which gives it a rustic boho look.  The earrings are glass beads in the same shaded spruce color.

I saw this yarn in my yarn store and I couldn’t resist. I love the color range from the warm Tawny Port to the light pink. It made much fun to knit, and to see how the colors evolved.

Tutorial: Travel Utensilo – #CIJParty 2017

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

Tutorial: Travel Utensilo by Barbara of MermaidsHatbox

What is your Christmas Inspiration?

This is a very simple sewing tutorial for a Travel Utensilo. It’s a perfect tutorial for a handmade gift. It is suitable for sewing beginners, and also for children who want to make their first steps at the sewing machine and would like to give something homemade.

Introduction

A truly quickly to sew and super-practical gift is this travel utensilo. It can be folded small and fits in every suitcase and in every travel bag. Whether in a hotel, on a visit or for example in the hospital, your things like jewelery, glasses, climate change, cosmetics etc are stored on their own place.

Materials Used

For three different sized utensilos are required: 3 solid colored fabrics and a patterned fabric, sewing thread, fabric clips or pins, an iron.

Tutorial Directions

1. The patterned fabric is cut: 1x20x20 cm 1x22x22 cm 1x24x24 cm 1. These squares are placed on the right to the right on the solid colored fabrics and cut out. The squares are clip together and sewn together with a seam of approx. 7mm, please let an opening of approx. 4 cm for turning on the other side.

2. At the corners, cut off a small triangle near the edge.

3. Turn the square. The corners nicely work out, which folds quite well with a thicker knitting needle, crochet hook, spoon pin, or similar.

4. Iron the seams, adjust the turning opening to match the overall seam.

5. The turning opening need not be closed further, that happens at a later time.

6. Now begin the Origami folding. The solid-color fabric will be inside the finished utensilo, the patterned is outside. The solid color fabric is below, the patterned fabric above. Now fold the fabric across the diagonal and iron over the pleat. Fold out, turn 90 degrees and fold again to the diagonal, iron. Unfolding this and see a cross along the diagonals.

7.  The solid color fabric is again below. Now fold the corners towards the center. And iron.

8. To mark the ground turn the fabric so that the patterned bottom is now below. Fold the sides towards the middle and iron. When ironing, make sure that the pleats are not flattened again.

9. Now start folding. For this, the corners must be united and fixed with the fabric clips or pins. I always start with one corner, then the next until I have all four corners. Then I correct corner by corner until I have a straight edge down which hits the bottom.

10. Now sew around the upper edge, thereby also closes the turning opening. The utensil is now sewn. The threads can now be sewn or cut off.

11. The sides can now be folded. To get a sharp edge again, iron the whole thing in the folded condition.

Conclusion

If you like, embellish your work with buttons, beads, ribbons or anything you love!

My shop name is MermaidsHatbox.

The best inspiration I get in the fabric stores. I see a fabric and have the vision, that it can be this or that.

2. How has your shop evolved over time?

I always develop new models. The greater the diversity, the more interest is growing

3. What do you love most about your work?

The work is very creative and I trying out new model’s. As well the wishes of my customers are also challenging me, and level up my skills.

4. What motivating music do you listen to? Share your playlist that gets and keeps you going!        

I love the music of the Singer/ Songwriter of the 60th 70th 80th. nothing special.

Thanks to the music streaming, I can gently dive into this time and am happy when I hear a long forgotten song that I loved as it was popular.

5. What book are you reading right now and where is your favorite place to read?

Emily Brontë- Wuthering Heights is the book I read. I see movies from this book, but the book is much better.

I read most in my bed.
