Catnip Baby Snakes Kitty Toys

Wednesday, 08 November 2017 1:00

Make A Snake – I think that should be a bumper sticker. Our baby snakes are too silly to be scary, and they're filled with catnip to make them wonderful little toys for your playful puddy tats. We've done a number of kitty toys here at Sew4Home mostly because we have a number of kitties wandering the various S4H studios, and it's a good way to keep them occupied rather than watching all our thread spools disappear under the sewing cabinets. 

Message Pinboard with Three Handy Pockets

Tuesday, 07 November 2017 1:00

People in general, and kids in particular, generate lots of bits and pieces of stuff: important forms, special coupons, lucky tickets, keys to long forgotten locks... there really isn't another word for it. In fact, if you look up "stuff" in the dictionary, there's probably a picture of the top of your desk or your kitchen counter! Keep those counters and other work surfaces tidier, and everything more organized, with our pretty framed pinboard, featuring three handy, stuff-collecting pockets. 

Fleece Scarf with Zippered Pocket

Friday, 27 October 2017 1:00

Fall is cranking into high gear, and according to the weather forecasters, winter is more than ready to jump into action very, very soon. Seems like it's the perfect time for a totally toasty project that's also a great gift idea. Today's fleece scarf is super fast and easy thanks to edge-binding with Dritz® Fold-Over Elastic. We also added a lightweight zippered pocket on one end. Use it to hold essentials so you can keep those jacket or pants pockets free to stuff your hands. Brrrrrrrrrrrr!

ColorBlock Poncho in Woolies Flannel: Fabric Depot

Friday, 20 October 2017 1:00

The trees are turning here in the Pacific Northwest, and although we’re well known for our stately evergreens, there are all kinds of amazing gold, red, and brown leaves swirling in the wind right now. We were inspired by these gorgeous fall tones when designing our Color Block Poncho. Made entirely from soft, smooth flannel, it has the weight and drape of wool but without any of the scratchiness, so it’s perfect to wear around your face and neck. We selected seven amazing herringbone colors from the Woolies Flannel collection at Fabric Depot.

Yoga Mat Strap Wrap

Tuesday, 17 October 2017 1:00

We’ve done several yoga mat totes here on Sew4Home (links are included below), but sometimes you don’t need or want a full bag. You’re dressed and ready, and your minimalist spirit says all you really need is to sling your mat over your shoulder and go. This style of mat wrap is easy to find on retail shelves, but we’re willing to bet none of them are as lovely (or as clever) as ours. We’ve used gorgeous jacquard ribbon from Renaissance Ribbons on one side with standard polyester webbing on the other. All the brain-twisting wrapping, turning, and securing challenges have been figured out, so you can put it together in a snap. 

Accent Rug with Little Sunshine Appliqué

Wednesday, 04 October 2017 1:00

The majority of nurseries we reviewed for our original Little Sunshine series opted for wall-to-wall carpeting to keep things soft and help muffle sounds, such as mom and dad trying to sneak out of the room and back to bed. Whether you have hardwood or carpet, an accent rug adds a great splash of color and helps protect the floor in the high-traffic, spill-zone directly in front of the crib. We feature the same pretty sunshine appliqué as is featured on our Little Sunshine Hanging Diaper Stacker, but in a jumbo size.

The Dead Roses Witch Hat: Sew4Home Halloween Classic

Tuesday, 03 October 2017 1:00

One of my favorite characters in the Warner Bros.® series of cartoons was Witch Hazel, who debuted in the 1954 short, "Bewitched Bunny." Disney® had previously created a Witch Hazel, and she was kind of cool too, but not nearly as sarcastic or quite as much the fashion victim as the Hazel created by Warner Bros. animator, Chuck Jones. A major part of his Hazel's signature style included a wonderfully crumpled black hat. We think she would approve of our Dead Roses Halloween Witch Hat with its scrunched top, wilting flowers, and stowaway spider. Hauntingly hideous haute couture and one of our most popular Halloween projects ever – a true Sew4Home Classic!

Plaid Flannel, Double-Sided Fringed Scarves

Monday, 02 October 2017 1:00

There's power in plaid! It's a fashion staple that never goes out of style. Dress it up or dress it down - it's fabulous in every way. We used a double layer of cozy plaid flannel for our classic fringed scarves. It's a great alternative to wool plaids, which can be itchy to wear around your face and neck. Here's a bit of fun flannel history: it was originally made of carded wool or worsted yarn. Today, the coziness comes from cotton. 100% cotton flannel is super soft; with two layers, it's super-duper soft. We picked out our flannels from Fabric Depot where there are enough choices to put together dozens of powerful plaid pairs.
