September is National Sewing Month, so we are celebrating all the things that make sewing great.

Thursday, 19 September 2019 1:00

Hold it together! On particularly busy days, I mutter this under my breath repeatedly. And on those days, sometimes it seems like the only thing keeping everything together is spit and baling wire. Thank goodness we can rely on Auriful thread to keep our sewing projects together, which means we should always have it at hand. Solution: this adorable carry case, perfectly sized for Aurifil's 12-spool Designer Thread Box and including a custom fold-up flap with pockets to hold your most important on-the-go sewing tools.  

Penny Saved Suspender Strap Apron

Wednesday, 18 September 2019 1:00

Unisex in style, tone, and fit, this apron welcomes the rosy mornings of the season with a vintage, slightly distressed palette that echoes the warm browns, taupes, and reds of a gorgeous fall sunrise. Our final measurements are shown below, but it's easy to size the pattern up or down since the main panels start as simple rectangles. We provide the armhole template as a free download. Wouldn't this apron make a wonderful host/hostess gift wrapped up with some natural wooden spoons, handsome metal skewers or even a vintage cookbook find?! 

Round Six-Pocket Bath Caddy

Tuesday, 17 September 2019 1:00

Thanks to the tiny house movement as well as more efficient living spaces overall, bathroom storage can feel like it has shrunk to the bare minimum. And then, there are the communal living challenges, like dorms or other situations where lots of folks are competing for one bath. Our great looking, super functional round caddy keeps bath necessities together in one handy organizer that's easy to tote back and forth. We selected a mid-weight oxford cloth in a fun dot pattern; it reminded us of happy little soap bubbles. The pretty exterior is paired with a water repellent rip stop nylon for the lining.

Toby the Terrific Turtle with a Hidden PJ Pocket

Friday, 13 September 2019 1:00

Turtles get a bad rap. They are the go-to metaphor for all things sluggish and slow. Cartoons depict them as dull-witted and sleepy. But as one of the animal kingdom's oldest species, they deserve a lot of respect. We're proud to share our favorite turtle, Toby. He's not only as cute as they come with his shy smile (made with darts!), he also has a job: holding his owner's PJs in a hidden pocket on his bottom shell. Thanks, Toby!

How to Turn Corners with a Decorative Stitch

Wednesday, 11 September 2019 1:15

Did you ever have one of those cute little wind-up toys? It's so fun to watch as it tick-tock walks across the floor. But what happens when it comes to a wall? Can it turn left or right or even stop? No! It just keeps going, ka-wonking its little toy head against the wall over and over and over. It's a little like the decorative stitch. As long as you're going straight, all is well. The pattern is pretty, the thread is colorful, it's adding an amazing accent to your project. Then the corner approaches. If making a turn with a decorative stitch has you ka-wonking your own little head against the wall, we're here to help with several ways to take a turn for the better. 

Sewing Machine Cover with Decorative Stitch & Button Embellishment

Tuesday, 10 September 2019 1:00

During National Sewing Month, doesn't your trusty machine deserve a brand new outfit?! A cover keeps your machine protected from dust and sun exposure when not in use, and a custom sewn cover in gorgeous fabric can be a very pretty alternative to what may have come with your machine. Decorative stitching in multiple colors plus button accents add a bit of flair to our design. Have fun with your fabric selections to best match your décor; we recommend coordinating two prints with one solid – a solid is the best background for the decorative stitching. Read on to see how we measured our Janome Skyline machine to determine our cuts. There's also a pattern download provided for the curved side panels.
