Fast Fridays: Embellished Ribbon Bookmarks

Friday, 14 October 2016 1:00

At Sew4Home, we save all the beautiful ribbon scraps from our projects, which gives a great stash to pull from for projects like these beautiful bookmarks. Most of our samples were made using the gorgeous jacquard ribbon from our friends at Renaissance Ribbons. Because of their intricate designs and rich colors, jacquard ribbons are ideal for making bookmarks. Many kinds of ribbon, however, would be suitable; you may have just what you need in your stash. Velveteen ribbons with vintage rhinestone embellishments make beautiful bookmarks and require no sewing. Grosgrain ribbons in school or team colors are a fun way to personalize, plus you can embellish with custom mascot charms and beads. Fast Fridays are all about whipping out something wonderful in no time at all. These ribbon bookmarks are very fast and easy to make, especially if you do a bunch at once so you'll have plenty for gift giving.

Pillowcase with Closed Overlap Ends: You Asked 4 It

Thursday, 13 October 2016 1:00

You may have seen these type of pillowcases in luxury hotels or fancy spas. Rather than an open end, the pillow itself is enclosed in an overlap. Many of you have asked how to do create this type of finish in order to keep the stark white pillow from showing along the end of a pretty pillowcase. An envelope style closure also helps keep the pillow from slipping out the end. “Make it stay and hide it away.” Sew4Home’s got you… and your pillow covered. 

Slightly Soft Storage Baskets in Burlap & Cotton

Wednesday, 12 October 2016 1:00

"Stand up straight!" That admonition rang in my ears throughout my childhood. And, while I am grateful for my excellent posture, there are times when I like a little bit of a slouch. These cute round storage baskets are designed with three types of interfacing to help them hold their slightly soft shape.

Insulated Baby Bottle Sleeve

Tuesday, 04 October 2016 1:00

Babies and their entourages (sometimes referred to as parents) are always on the go: to the store, the park, the playgroup, the zoo, anywhere and everywhere. When they're out and about, they like to have their favorite drink nearby. Mom gets her 'Bucks venti half white mocha, half cafe vanilla, ez ice, 2 shots pour appigato style with whip and caramel drizzle frappachino (actual order overheard at one of our local Starbucks®)... baby gets his/her bottle - nicely warmed or chilled, thank you very much. It's an easy request to fill thanks to our baby-on-the-go thermal baby bottle carrier. There's a water resistant PUL lining, a layer of insulating batting, and a super trendy fabric exterior with a handy Velcro® strap.

Sweet Half Apron with Piping and Flap Pocket: In Handmade by Bonnie & Camille

Monday, 03 October 2016 1:00

As sweet as…? You fill in the blank! For our part, we’re going to go with: as sweet as a fresh batch of birthday cupcakes with extra sprinkles. When we saw the new Handmade collection by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabric, we knew it was as sweet as that and more! The gorgeous soft colors and quilt-inspired motifs are perfect for a pretty apron. It’s such a wonderfully blended collection that we couldn’t stop with just one, making two matching samples so there’s sweetness to share.

Walk into any store selling clothing or accessories this season, and right there in the front display you will see it: faux fur! It is everywhere, especially these adorable sets of faux fur scarves and gloves. Super trendy: check! Super easy: double check! With a little bit of fur and a little bit of time, you can create beautiful matching scarves and cuffed gloves for yourself and anyone else you know who needs to bundle up. 

Dead Roses Halloween Witch Hat

Thursday, 29 September 2016 1:00

One of my favorite characters in the Warner Bros.® series of cartoons is Witch Hazel, who debuted in the 1954 short, "Bewitched Bunny." Disney® had previously created a Witch Hazel, and she was kind of cool too, but not nearly as sarcastic or quite as much the fashion victim as the Hazel created by Warner Bros. animator, Chuck Jones. A major part of his Hazel's signature style included a wonderfully crumpled black hat. We think she would approve of our Dead Roses Halloween Hat with its scrunched top, wilting flowers and stowaway spider. Hauntingly hideous haute couture and one of our most popular Halloween projects!

ScrapBusters: Rainbow Zippered Pouches in Two Sizes

Wednesday, 28 September 2016 1:00

Designed to be the perfect size to drop into a larger bag or tote, these little pouches are really too pretty to hide! They’re long and slim with a full 12” opening. We combined a bold stripe with a pretty floral and topped them off with a striking rainbow zipper. Follow our design or create your own unique combination of fabric and hardware. It’s a fun and easy project – perfect for experimenting with unusual pairings of color, texture and motifs. So dive deep into your stash pile and pull out something new and different.
