Protective Cat & Dog Pet Throws for Furniture

Wednesday, 21 August 2019 1:00

If you share your space with a pet or two (or three...), you also share a certain amount of fur, dirt, and other messes we won't go into here. Fluffy and Fido know they're supposed to stay off the special chair, but that's only when you're watching. Thanks to YouTube, we know what really goes on when we leave the room. Protect your favorite furniture with an easy-to-launder pet throw. Yes, of course you could use an old sheet, but you sew and fabric companies make adorable pet prints. Shield your surfaces in style. 

Picnic blanket with Carry Wrap & Wind Spike Grommets

Monday, 24 June 2019 1:00

This double layer blanket is so fast and easy, you could start it after lunch and be using it to dine al fresco by dinner. And, because this is Sew4Home, you know we’d never be satisfied with just a blanket! Ours features reinforced corners with grommets. Use these to spike the blanket into the ground to keep it from blowing away. Plus, there are instructions for an optional carry handle.

Button Quilted Layer Cake Throw

Tuesday, 18 June 2019 1:00

Thanks to the pre-cut 10" squares of a pretty layer cake bundle, we whipped-up this cute and cozy lap blanket in a single afternoon. If you are brand new to sewing or are teaching someone to sew and/or quilt, this is a very beginner-friendly project. The patchwork is about as basic as you can get, and the quilting is done with hand-sewn buttons.

Extra Cushy Square Pouf

Wednesday, 28 December 2016 1:00

A pouf is the ottoman's casual cousin. Where an ottoman is all about traditional structure and tautness, a pouf is laid back and soft around the edges. Kind of like a sleek business suit versus your favorite pair of comfy sweats. We pushed the slouchy style even farther, taking a cue from poufs we spotted at West Elm and Pottery Barn that were almost more like a square bean bag (not to mention being insanely expensive!). That type of filler didn't seem very functional to us, and we think you'll like our foam and batting solution, which allows the pouf to take on both sitting and footrest duties as well as being able to hold a tray as a substitute table. 

Cozy Faux Fur, Pelt-Cut Chair Throw: Fabric Depot

Monday, 14 December 2015 1:00

Transform a plain wooden, plastic or metal chair by covering it with some instant softness and warmth. Our faux fur and suede throw is cut to resemble the natural, hourglass shape of an animal pelt. The gentle curve gives it a lovely drape from back to seat. We show you how to use an ordinary bath towel to create a custom pattern for your chair. These beautiful fabrics are from the amazing selection at Fabric Depot. You'll find shopping details for our choices as well as several other equally gorgeous pairings.

Extra Cushy Square Pouf: Waverly World

A pouf is the ottoman's casual cousin. Where an ottoman is all about traditional structure and tautness, a pouf is laid back and soft around the edges. Kind of like a sleek business suit versus your favorite comfy pair of sweats. We pushed the slouchy style even farther, taking a cue from poufs we spotted at West Elm and Pottery Barn that were almost like a more like a square bean bag (not to mention being insanely expensive!). That type of filler didn't seem very functional to us, and we think you'll like our foam and batting solution, which allows the pouf to take on both sitting and footrest duties as well as being able to hold a tray as a substitute table. As part of our Waverly World series, we were thrilled to work with this delicious 100% linen home décor fabric called Lightfoot Garden in Cinnabar from the Waverly Williamsburg collection.

Skirted Sewing Machine Cover

Thursday, 18 September 2014 1:00

In honor of National Sewing Month, maybe you should do something sweet for your trusty sewing machine, like make it a little outfit! Many sewing machines come with a cover; some are hard plastic, some are soft vinyl... none are particularly pretty. Since we believe all our sewing machines have their own personalities, we think they deserve their own personalized covers to keep them protected from dust and sun exposure when not in use. Besides, these hard-working machines make so much stuff for us, the least we can do is make a little something for them! Our sample cover was created for a Janome Memory Craft 5200, a very standard-sized machine. This Janome is one of our mid-range models and a real sweetie-pie. She deserved a cover with a kicky bottom ruffle and a bright turquoise ribbon accent. 

Easy Ironing Board Cover

Thursday, 11 September 2014 1:00

Did you know the modern ironing board was invented and patented by African American former slave, Sarah Boone in 1892? It's true. Although hers was not the first ironing board on the scene, it was completely unique in its narrow, contoured design, which allowed sleeves to be drawn up over the board. We'd like to think Ms. Boone would be pleased with our cheery ironing board cover. Just about all sewing projects require a fair amount of time spent staring at your ironing board. Why force yourself to look at those gawd-awful striped covers they sell at the local Target®... I swear those things must have been designed by someone with his eyes closed and both hands tied behind his back! You deserve a pretty cover.
