New Kits and Buttons

It took me just about all week but I have loaded up the shop with new buttons and new kits. I have been working on both of these for awhile and so I am super excited to show you. 

There are lots of new buttons including birds, a new style of flowers, bees, toadstools and more. They are in the shop along with new stock of your favorite buttons.

And kits... You'll find Otis, Rhubarb, Three Okey Dokey Owls, Okey Dokey Owl and Friends Applique Quilt, Modern Flowers Skinny Applique Quilt, Sew Happy, Pin Cushions...whew, is that all? I don't think it is, you'll just have to go and see.

These kits are all in my new fabric line that is in stores now called Hoopla and Everyday Fun. If you are looking for yardage of the fabric google Hoopla and Everyday Fun and I am sure you will find an online or brick and mortar store that is selling it. Theres a cute little letters panel that can be used to appliqué names, etc. You can see it here.

Have a great day,

 Hey Hey,  I have been so busy lately behind the scenes at Jennifer Jangles. It's nice to take a break and do a little blog post. I bought a an old Sixxix cutting machine on Ebay a few weeks a long with some dies. I have been wanting to try one out to see if it was faster or better than just using scissors. I am still undecided on that one. It's fun to use and in just a bit I had a bunch of shapes to stack ad layer. I just wish they looked like they were cut by hand, you know a little wonky.

Pretty sure wonky wasn't a term I learned in art school. But anyway, after cutting out all of those shapes it was so much fun to spend and evening sewing the stacks together. 

And now I have a basket full of embellishments. I am calling them my emergency embellishments, because they are ready to go when I need them.

Have a great day,

Jennifer Jangles New Website!

My new website is up and running, yippee! The look is very similar to my previous website because I was happy with the look. The part I am super excited about is my new shopping cart. It is so fancy compared to my old one. First of all, my PDF patterns are in the shop and second everything is in stock just like my Etsy shop. Actually it is linked to my Etsy shop so you can shop on my site or Etsy and find the exact same items. For you wholesale folks, you'll find a new PDF catalog with all of my items as well.

Go check it out and let me know what you think.
Have a great day,

New Email and Web Problems

Hi there, For some reason my e-mail abruptly stopped working yesterday. Of course, I wasn't expecting this. So I am scrambling to keep things running smoothly here. I have always had another email and you might just already have it. If you are trying to get a hold of me and you can't. My e-mail is jenniferheynen (at) There are also some re direct problems with my site. I am in the middle of a big update and I am guessing this has something to do with my email disappearing as well. But no fear...I'm working on it and hopefully Jennifer Jangles will all be back to normal soon.

You can always contact me through my Facebook page, my blog, or Etsy shop.

Thanks so much!

Love Note Valentine Project

Hello, Valentines Day is just around the corner. I made up this little heart door hanger. It's got a pocket for you to tuck a love note to someone special.

Here's what you will need to get started;

1/4 yard heart fabric
3" x 6" pocket fabric
Assorted Trims
Fabric and Felt scraps
Heat n Bond Fusible Spray

1. First using the pattern here, cut out two hearts from the fabric and set aside.
2. Cut 2 squares of fabric measuring  2.75" x 3". These will be your pocket. Turn 1/4" down at the top of each piece, press and sew to hold.
3. Place right sides together and sew the three remaining sides together. Clip the corners, turn right side out, and press.

4. On one of of the heart pieces, arrange the pocket in the top left hand corner. Choose your trims for embellishing and cut to desired size for the heart.

5. Sew the trims and the pocket onto the heart. I like to hold my trims in place with Thermo-webs fusible adhesive. I spray the back of any of the flat trims and press them in place. They are held securely while I sew. I use this spray on my Happy Scrappy Scarf Trims as well.

6. Next, cut trims for the hanger measuring approximately 12" in length. Pin the ends to the top of the heart. 

7. Gather the tulle and pin it around the edges of the heart and pin into place. At this point it should look like the image below. I cut my tulles width to 3" wide for pinning. Once the heart was filled and sewn shut, I went back around with scissors and trimmed it to the desired length. 

8. Pin the second side of the heart to this heart making sure right sides are together. Leave a gap for turning and stuffing towards one of the bottom sides.

9. Sew around the heart, clip the curves up to the seam and turn right sides out.

10. Fill with fiberfill and hand sew opening closed.

11. I made my flower embellishment with a yo yo, some felt and a button. You can find the flower and leave pieces on the pattern piece printout if you would like to do the same. Sew the embellishment onto the heart and you are finished.

12. Fill out your love note and slip it into the pocket. If you want the same note paper as I used, you'll find a printable one on the pattern piece page as well.

Have fun!
