Back-to-School Family Movie Night

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Snyder’s-Lance, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #Pop4Captain http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Hello there makers! We have had such a busy first week back to school, how about you? I thought we would celebrate the completion of the first week with a Back-to-School Family Movie Night, complete with fun snacks and some simple decorations. With the pre-order of Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, we can hardly wait to get our movie watching on!

We are all so excited for the new Captain Underpants movie DVD release. Not only is it the perfect movie for family movie night, but two of my favorite comedians, Kevin Hart and Ed Helms, are the voices of the main characters.

So we decided to theme our family movie night Captain Underpants style, complete with red caps and white underpants. 

We decorated the kitchen table with red pompoms, a table cloth, some white paper clouds, and a couple of fun signs. We also picked up a couple of our favorite movie snacks, Pop Secret popcorn and Lance cracker sandwiches. 

I made red paper capes and white paper underpants and glued them onto small paper bags to hold the Pop Secret popcorn. They were really simple to make and turned out so cute.

We love Pop Secret because it’s a delicious, high-quality snack that people can feel good about sharing with their family… not to mention the great butter taste! Yum! What’s family movie night without the popcorn?!

Lance crackers are one of our go-to snacks.  They have been making little sandwiches for over 100 years with two awesome crackers on the outside with incredible spreads between. Two of my favorites are Peanut Butter Honey and Grilled Cheese! With real peanut butter or real cheese between crispy baked crackers, up to 5 grams of protein, and no high fructose corn syrup, Lance provides a variety of sandwich crackers that are a tasty and satisfying snack solution for your family’s busiest school days. 

To make these crackers even more fun, I added salami capes and pepper jack cheese underpants! They made my daughter giggle quite a bit and they tasted great… mission accomplished. 

After a long week, cuddling up with my favorite snacks and favorite people to watch a fun family movie is just what we needed. 

Want to have your own back-to-school family movie night, too? You certainly can! We bought our Pop Secret popcorn and Lance crackers at Walmart. Plus, the Captain Underpants DVD is will be available in Walmart stores 9/12! Be sure to reserve your copy now by pre-ordering today! While supplies last.

How do you celebrate the first week back to school? Does your family like movie nights? I’d love to hear about it!

Must Have Sewing and Embroidery Tools

This post contains affiliate links. For more information, refer to the policies page.

Happy Friday! We’re gathering up our favorite craft supplies this month and today it’s my turn to show off my must have sewing and embroidery tools!

My two big loves in the craft room are sewing and embroidery – so I have to share my go-to materials with you! Let’s start with embroidery!

(Some of these links are affiliate links – that just means if you purchase from these links we’ll receive a tiny commission – but there’s no extra cost to you!)

For transferring embroidery my favorite pens are these iron-on transfer pens from Sublime Stitching. They have super fine tips so you can really get those details transferred perfectly!

Fine Tip Iron-On Transfer Pens

You know I feel strongly about my DMC Embroidery Floss and this new Popular Colors pack is a great bundle of threads. I adore these colors!

One of other must have’s when stitching is the DMC Color Book. This book has little swatches of every thread so when you’re choosing colors you can go to the store with a plan – and easily see what colors come in floss, pearl, and more.

So now that we’re all set for stitching, let’s start sewing!

For most projects I cut them out on my oversized Fiskars mat and yes, when it comes to cutting mats – size matters. ;)

Seam ripping is yucky, so I’m all for making it easier! This handy seam ripper has a little cap that you can use to make removing threads super easy – they just kind of “stick” to it!

I absolutely cannot resist cute embroidery scissors – and these little unicorn scissors are my faves (right now!). They work really well too so they’re cute and useful – always a must. :)

Gold Unicorn 4" embroidery scissors - small unicorn sewing scissors - for cross stitching, needlework, quilting

This is such a little thing but soooo useful, especially with all the bags, pillows and quilts I sew! This little point turning tool makes it so you have nice crisp points on all those seams and corners. And it’s super cheap too!

I keep this handy bottle of Best Press with my iron all the time and use it on pretty much every project I make! It works like a starch without all the gummy mess that usually comes with starch. It’s really light and it smells great – and you don’t have to worry about it discoloring the fabric! She has other scents if lavender isn’t your thing.

And speaking of irons – I know this is pricier than the usual irons you can pick up at any store, but I got this little beauty last year for Christmas and it is my favorite thing ever. It is a Rowenta Iron and it’s perfect for sewists. It’s nice and hot, heats up quickly, has a good sharp point on the top and just all around works so great. Gushing here, I know, but I seriously love this iron!

Cute sewing supplies are a must! I’m loving this little floral measuring tape from Riley Blake! I like to take this kind along in my bag for measurements in the wild too.

I’m pretty much blind as a bat so good lighting in the sewing room is a must for me! This Ottlite Desk Lamp is perfect for right by my sewing machine – plus it has a handy caddy for scissors, seam rippers and marking pens!

Washi Tape! I know – these aren’t sewing supplies – but I use washi tape in the sewing room all the time! It’s perfect for marking seam guides on your machine and you can remove it without a big mess. I also use it in embroidery to wrap around the edges of fabrics that will fray! This cute measuring tape washi has the added bonus of the ruler on it too!

I hope you’ve had fun looking at my favorite sewing machine supplies! I didn’t include my machine because it’s being a little wonky and I’m on the hunt for an upgrade! But I’d love to know what your favorite supplies are!

Make sure you come back next week for more fun must have craft supplies!
