At the risk of sounding a little cheesy, don’t you love it when you re-discover a been-around-forever kind of product that is inexpensive, natural, re-usable, and super versatile? May we re-introduce you to: Dritz Cheesecloth. This time of year, it’s a super fun Halloween decorating material, but it’s also a year-round option for cooking, cleaning, crafting, and more.
Eyes on the road! Municipalities are cracking down on distracted drivers, making it a perfect time to create a caddy for your car that can keep important items within reach yet enough out of the way so they don’t interfere with the task at hand: driving! We used a clever combination of Dritz® hardware and elastic for ease and flexibility. This would be a great organizer for anyone who spends a lot of time in the car. Add a few of auto safety products to make it an even smarter gift idea.
The most basic of box bottom bags becomes a top-notch Halloween Treat Bag thanks to three Frightful Faces made from Dritz Products and Notions as well as a few bits and pieces from your own scrap stash. Iron-on Lettering personalizes each bag and a sturdy 1” Dritz Belting handle means your little ghosts and goblins can load them up with lots o’ loot.
September is National Sewing Month, so we are celebrating all the things that make sewing great. A lot of those "things" are the fantastic notions and tools that make our project construction fast, easy, and fun. But there are so many… everywhere… all over my work space. Time for a bit of tidying up with our Multi-Pocket Table Top Sewing Caddy. Our sample caddy is not only filled with incredible Dritz® notions, tools, and more; you’ll see within our instructions below how we used many of them.
THIS GIVEAWAY CLOSED 09/26/19. THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED.
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.
