“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” – Mother Teresa. We are welcoming 2020 with a gorgeous set of Peace Pillows. Our custom embroidery designs highlight the amazing stitch precision of the new Janome Memory Craft 550E embroidery-only machine, and they are offered below as free downloads thanks to our sponsorship from Janome America.
It’s a digital world out there, and in this world lives a whole lot of cords and accessories and add-ons and jump drives… and, and, and! Keeping track of everything, especially when you need to bring your digital devices with you to work or play, can be a challenge. We created our pretty Tech Rollup Pouch to hold all the essentials.
There are so many great little tools for sewing. But you can't take advantage of them if you can't find them! Our sewing spaces can quickly start to look like the famous kitchen "junk drawer" – a jumbled mess of stuff. How many times have you bought new supplies because you've misplaced the originals? I know I have! We've created a handy wall caddy with fourteen pockets to keep all your favorite notions organized and available to be used.
Stash it. Store it. Hide it away! We all love to get organized… or at least we love to have pretty boxes, baskets, and bins that allow us to dream about how organized we could be. These gorgeous fabric boxes are a generous 13” square, which means they can organize a lot! The cool Dritz Faux Leather Handles make them extra easy to use – acting like a drawer pull when the boxes are used in a storage unit or along a shelf.
This wonderful little caddy came about thanks to your requests on our You Asked 4 It list! Many of you had suggested we design a purse organizer. What are these brilliant little carriers? By loading up all your essentials into one multi-pocket pouch, all you need to do when you change bags is to switch the organizer from one to the other. It also makes it much easier to find those essentials – no more digging around at the bottom of your purse to locate your headphones!
The New Year is in full swing, which means many of us are dusting off our resolutions to “get organized!” We have a full week of projects you can make to pack, stash, and store your stuff, kicking off with these cute curved zipper cases. We’ve asked it before and we’ll ask it again: "Can you ever have too many zip pouches in various shapes and sizes?" We think not!
Our trio of travel necessities can be made as a matched set or you can create each one individually. Start off your set with this roomy, hold-everything tote. We chose two coordinating canvas prints in tones of oatmeal and rose – a color combination that works year ‘round. And, why rely on designer logos when you can be your own brand? A subtle bit of gorgeous embroidery is the finishing touch that really makes a project your own.
Warm up to the new year with one of our ultra cozy flannel and faux sherpa scarves. Sherpa is one of the “it” fabrics for cold weather accessories, and today’s faux fur and fleece sherpa options make it both easy and economical to add this thick and bundle-y texture to your winter warm-up projects. We paired our sherpa fleece with another perennial winter favorite: plaid flannel. The bouncy finishing touch are the jumbo poms at each end of the scarf, because fluffy pom poms make everything a little bit happier.
You can't sit and sew home décor projects all day long. Sometimes you need an exercise break ... but not a break from style. We paired a décor weight exterior with a standard weight cotton lining, both in vibrant colors and prints. Then we calmly meditated on the easiest instructions with the most stylish details. The result guarantees good karma for all who tote this tote to class.
The ultimate softness of luxury plush fabric originally hit the scene as an ideal choice for bundling up babies. We doubled the cozy quotient of ours by mixing the Shannon Dimple Cuddle with an extra soft flannel. You'll love this blanket's easy binding. It's formed by wrapping the larger flannel backing square around to the front and over the Cuddle square to create a wide, continuous border. We also show you a clever way to stitch the rick rack in place for a perfect reveal along each edge and into the corners.
