ScrapBusters: Dresser Top Coin Catcher & Jewelry Minder

Thursday, 21 February 2019 1:00

The bedroom dresser top. In catalog and magazine photos, it's always so clean – a single rose in a vase adorning one pristine corner. In reality, this is one of the most cluttered, easy-to-lose-things-on surfaces in the house! Scatterings of coins, broken jewelry, forgotten notes, safety pins, missing buttons, dusty photos, watches in need of batteries... you name it, it's likely to end up on the dresser top. We've come up with a beautiful way to help you organize at least some of it. We're not promising miracles; you are still going to have to take those watches in for batteries one of these days, but at least you'll have a place to collect a few things. We call our cute fabric basket a Coin Catcher & Jewelry Minder, but you're welcome to let it catch and mind whatever you'd like.

Ribbon Wrapped Bucket Bag with Drawcord Top

Tuesday, 19 February 2019 1:00

Simply. Stunning. Of course we love all our bags and totes here at Sew4Home, but every once in awhile, one of the designs turns out so fabulously, it becomes an instant all-star favorite. That’s the case with this Ribbon Wrapped Bucket Bag. If you’re a regular Sew4Home visitor, you know we are big fans of ribbon embellishment – especially Renaissance Ribbons. Their woven jacquard ribbons are the brightest, most beautiful ribbon we’ve ever found. Our tall drawcord duffle is the perfect project to showcase a merry-go-round of color.

Slim Crossbody Shoulder Pouch: Dritz Belting and Hardware

Monday, 11 February 2019 1:00

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.

Heart-Themed Gift Bags in Burlap & Cotton

Friday, 08 February 2019 1:00

We know you love fast and easy projects, and we also know Valentine's Day is creeping ever closer. But we also know this doesn't mean you want to skimp on cute or stylish! We have you covered with these sweet little sacks. First off, they use just tiny bits of fabric and ribbon, so other than a little bit of burlap, you're likely to already have everything you need on hand. If not, the amount of fabric and notions required is small – or buy in bulk and set up a gift bag assembly line for all your Valentines. The finished bags are as cute as the proverbial button with a rustic style that works for young and old... and in between.

Fold-over, Zippered Clutch with Circular Decorative Stitching

Thursday, 07 February 2019 1:00

We love looking for ways to use decorative stitching. It can add just the right pop of embellishment to a project. This striking oversize clutch provides the perfect large, solid surface for concentric rings of stitching applied with the Janome Circular Sewing Attachment in a bold, 9mm stitch width. Vary the fabric palette, the coordinating print, and the thread colors to create your unique look.

On-the-Go Diaper Case & Changing Pad

Tuesday, 05 February 2019 1:00

Sometimes you just need the essentials for a quick trip out with baby: a few diapers, wipes, and a changing pad will get you through most situations. Better still if those essentials can be packed in a clever case that looks great... like a trendy little bag instead of a bulky carrier with giant cartoon animals that screams, "Baby stuff in here!" 

Drawstring Bonnet Basket for Valentine's & More

Thursday, 31 January 2019 1:00

Structured on the bottom, soft on the top. Sounds like the making of a comfy mattress, but it's also the clever construction that creates our adorable Bonnet Baskets. The walls and base of the basket use a combination of fusible foam and rigid interfacing to form a perfect round shape that stands up on its own - even when filled to the brim. The drawstring top is soft and flexible, creating a billowy cap to cover and secure the basket's contents.

New Year’s Resolutions here we come, looking sleek and stylish as we tackle those fitness goals thanks to our S4H Fast and Easy Gym Tote! This bag opens wide to be able to carry a pair of shoes as well as a change of clothes and all the extras you need for your workout routine.

A magnetic snap holds the top closed and you can choose your carrying style: either a shoulder strap or handles – both in tough decorative belting.

WordPlay Messenger Bag

Thursday, 10 January 2019 1:00

Got something to say? This bag lets you make a statement in style. It’s a messenger bag with a real message! We used Dritz® iron-on letters to create the FACT - FICTION phrase on our WordPlay Bag. Read on to see five other word pairings we thought were fun or brainstorm to come up with your own. Three muted colors of solid canvas work together with classic metal Dritz D-Rings, a swivel clip, and metal button studs to give our bag a hardworking, good looking feel… and that’s a FACT! 

Vintage-Style Kid's Book Satchel

Monday, 07 January 2019 1:00

This jaunty little bag actually falls into the "satchel" category, which makes it seem even more vintage and unique. Satchels sound as if they should be carried through the English countryside by a group of clever school chums, possibly on their way to Hogwarts. We took the sophisticated styling of an adult carryall and scaled it down to kid-size. Feeling like kids have all the fun? Want your very own mini-satchel? Simply lengthen the strap and you're good to go.
