We’ve never seen so much helpfulness and handiness in just 2” square inches of space! This new Thread Cutter Caddy from Dritz® is cute and compact, but still offers three different functions for cutting, carrying, and catching. Read on to see this mighty mini in action and enter to win one of your very own.
We always get compliments on our custom duffle patterns, but we realized the one category we hadn’t tackled was a smaller size bag that would work for kids or anyone who wants a space-saving, on-the-go option. We created a soft, quilted exterior so the duffle can gently expand and mold to better fit its contents. And we used Dritz hardware and polyester belting to pull it all together, adding a fully adjustable and detachable shoulder strap plus Double Cap Rivets to strengthen the pocket tops, and a handy Swivel Hook key lanyard on the inside. It’s true what they say, good things do come in small packages!
Whether you’re heading back to school or just heading across town, this dynamic fold over backpack is deep enough to hold everything you need and is super comfy to wear. We used the new 1½” Dritz Belting in a bright red for both the backpack straps as well as the straps that hold the front Swivel Hook and D-Ring closure. Pick an eye-catching print and put your fussy cutting skills to work for the most striking finish. The Dritz 1½” Belting comes in 13 colors and 4 stripe combinations so its easy to coordinate with your fabric selection. We matched ours to two bold fabrics from Premier Prints.
Dead center. Center of attention. Front and center. Being smack dab in the middle of the action is as important in sewing as it is in life. The new Omnigrip Centering Ruler from Omnigrid® makes finding your center point and measuring from it in either direction faster and easier.
This project is a unique one for Sew4Home as we are using someone else’s pattern to create the final design. You might have heard the industry news this spring that Prym Consumer – the parent company of our sponsor, Dritz – acquired Amy Barickman’s Indygo Junction, allowing Prym to enter the market with clothing, apron, home décor, and craft patterns that naturally align with their existing options and tools. Dritz asked us to pick an Indygo Junction pattern to alter with our own Sew4Home Spin, a “pattern hack” if you will. Read on to see the changes we made.
Is there a guy in your life who should be crowned King of the Kitchen? We love Dad Chefs, and this apron is specially designed to suit their style. The body of the apron is made from tough canvas and features a full coverage outline. There are plenty of pockets because we know Dads like to tuck away their tools. And, we used flexible Dritz 1” Belting with hardworking Dritz hardware accents to make sure stress points are reinforced and the apron is easy to get on and off. Both the neck loop and the waist ties are adjustable to fit most sizes.
We’ve done totes and we’ve done yoga mat carriers, but – until now – we hadn’t combined the two in such a stylish way. Collect all your gear into a generously sized tote, then use the handy wraparound straps to secure your mat to the front of the bag. All-in-one and ready to head to class and back again. Pulling it together for both fashion and function is 1½” Dritz Belting for the handles, accent straps, and wraparound straps.
Spring is upon us, and summer is waiting in the wings, ready to jump into action. It’s the time of year my family calls, “biggin’ out.” Stormy days are good for puttering around with little projects, but this is the season for biggin’ out with makeovers, home and yard remodels, wardrobe updates, and décor freshening. If you’re tackling a sizable project, you need a terrific tote. This amazing Feed Sack Big Bag is here to help. We turned once again to the wonderful new 1½” Belting and Hardware from our friends at Dritz to fashion a versatile carryall with room to spare. We took some inspiration from the heavy duty feed sack fabric of the early 1900s to create a look that’s nostalgically trendy and eye-catching but in a hardworking modern canvas substate.
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 mark a milestone birthday. The featured element that makes our boxes unique is the stunning Dritz Campaign Hardware at each corner.
We all seem to love the little things: kittens and puppies, babies in tiny baby gear, even mini muffins are cuter and more irresistible than their full size counterparts. So it goes for smaller pouches meant to hold just the necessities when you’re out and about. It’s one of our most popular project categories! We continue to have a blast with the new Dritz Belting, using it this time in the colorful 1” width to create an adjustable strap for a handy crossbody shoulder pouch.
