Custom Tool Roll-Up Video with Amy Tangerine

Thank you so much for sharing!

Hey Everyone!

Last week, I had the privilege of heading down to Amy Tangerine’s studio to film some videos.  She has a YouTube channel as well as a great blog and online presence where she specializes in paper arts like scrapbooking and even has her own line of papers and stickers!  We got together and she helped me learn the basics of scrapbooking, what I should buy and how to get started.  I seem to have lots of piles of school photos, printed pictures, certificates etc. that don’t have a home and I am worried they will get lost!  I was glad she was able to walk me through some steps to get me started!  After we filmed that video which went up on her channel, we filmed the tool roll-up video for my channel.  I have had this on my list of tutorials to make for a long time and she loved the idea since it applied to so many different areas of creativity whether it’s make-up brushes, crochet hooks or scrapbook supplies.


Here is what you need to make the tool roll-up!


2 fat quarters (18 x 22 inches)
1 piece of interfacing (I am using Pellon 987)
coordinating thread
grosgrain ribbon

Attach your interfacing to your outer pieces of fabric
Place right sides together and sew around using a 1/2 inch seam allowance, leaving a 2-3 inches opening halfway up on the 22 inch side.
Clip corners, turn right side out and press
Place 18 inch strands of ribbon in the opening and pin in place
Top stitch all the way around using less than a 1/4 inch seam allowance
Fold up about 5 inches and determine pocket sizes, marking with a pin
Sew a straight line down the pocket back stitching at the beginning and the end
All done!
