Clear glass vases… we all seem to end up with a cupboard full of them in various sizes. They can be quite lovely individually, but it can be difficult to use them in a grouping. In addition, because they are clear, you can see through to the floral arrangement’s stems and leaves, which may not
At Sew4Home, we save all the beautiful ribbon scraps from our projects, which gives us 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
Did you ever wonder where "Christmas In July" came from? It turns out this summer celebration of Yuletide has been around for years. In the early 1940s, relief groups planning to send presents to soldiers or missionaries overseas, would gather everything together in July in order to have it ready to ship it off in
We use traditional tassels often as a fun embellishment for linens, cushions, bags, and more. But in true Sew4Home fashion, we weren’t content to settle for traditional. So we have two unique tassel styles for you: the Broomstick Tassel with a sleek, floss-wrapped hanging loop, and the fantastical Yarn Chubbies, which we think look like
This project definitely falls into the Great Gift Idea category. It also falls into the No Sew category! A personalized shadow box is a wonderful way to commemorate a special occasion. Our samples celebrate a new baby and a wedding. You could also create one for an anniversary, graduation, to memorialize a trip or to
My grandmother, an immigrant from Lithuania, was an unbelievably talented seamstress. She did everything by hand, including free-hand embroidery, tatting, and crocheting. She never needed a pattern; you could just sketch something and she would create it. It was the sewing equivalent of the musician's 'hum a few bars.' Her vividly artistic creations seemed to
“Up against the wall.” “We’re stuck on you.” “If these walls could talk.”  The introductory lines came fast and furiously for this article about the new designer wallpaper from Hawthorne Supply Co.. But what it finally came down to was: Wow. Just. Wow. We’ve always loved wallpaper – just not putting up wallpaper. In fact,
These handy energy savers are great for both winter and summer. Right now, when ol' man winter is beating down our doors, they keep the heat in and the drafts out. In the summer, they're just as handy to help keep the cool air inside and the heat and humidity outside. They can also help
The name is due to its similarity to the wide, ornate straps musicians have always used to hold their guitars. By changing how the ends attach, they are now also a fun way to update any bag that uses a removable strap. We created ours to show off the decorative stitch package on our Janome
Did you have a diary as a kid? I did. I just wasn't ever very good at it: "Dear Diary, School was boring today. When I got home, I ate crackers and watched TV. It was a good day." Yep, pretty scintillating stuff. However, if I'd had something as lovely as this Classic Fabric Journal
One week and counting… it’s officially the Festival of the Last Minute. We’re right there with you and have put together a set of four nearly-no-sew projects that use Dritz hardware and tools to make the steps easy and the results outstanding.

Cute toss pillows in interesting shapes are a great way to interject a bit of playful zest into children's décor (although, we will allow you to make this for grown-up types as well). Our ukulele pillow tutorial certainly qualifies as an interesting shape, and we include a free downloadable pattern for it.  Can’t you just

We are in awe of Elaine Schmidt, secretly referring to her as "the ribbon whisperer" because we're so amazed by what she can get ribbon to do. The best part is, she's always ready, willing, and able to pass along her skills so the rest of us can tame our ribbon into beautiful trims, rosettes, sculptures,

These cute stuffables are a fantastic ScrapBuster project – especially for kids! Follow our steps to make a basket of super-soft decorative eggs in bright, patterned fleece with ribbons, rick rack, mini-poms, and felt flower accents.
