Another You Asked 4 It survey request crossed off the list. Several people asked about structured fabric baskets. We're guessing there must be a lot of Sew4Home fans out there with a lot of stuff they need to organize in some terrific totes. We've come through with not just one but a pretty pair: a large basket measuring 10" wide x 8" tall x 6" deep and a small companion at 8" wide x 7" tall x 5" deep. The two nest perfectly together. Wouldn't these make an awesome wedding shower gift filled with kitchen or bath goodies?!
Dear ol' Dad, his special day is coming up, and there are so many things you love him for. But, he can be so dang hard to shop for, let alone sew for. Most projects tend to lean more to the feminine than the masculine... unless you landed here at Sew4Home where we have whipped up four fantastic Father's Day gifts to delight Dad. We start our gift-giving ideas with today's sleek iPad case; it features a bike-bag style crossover strap in cotton webbing, tough pockets front and back, and a soft fleece lining.
It's April 25th... do you know where your Mother's Day present is?? No worries if you don't. Sew4Home has you covered with four fast, easy and very pretty projects for your mommy. Today, we start it off with our Market Tote. It's a simple lined, box-bottom bag, featuring fun double-ruffle ribbon accents. But there's nothing simple about the result – it's a truly beautiful bag that Mom (or sis or auntie or grandma or....) will love.
"Where did I put that...?!?" You fill in the blank with any of the myriad of items that seem to go missing on any given day. Sew4Home friends and fans seem to never get enough of our clever storage solutions, so we have a new one for you: pinboards with pockets! We've created a companion set. One is large (a full 24" x 48") and simply wrapped; the other is smaller (16" x 20"), beautifully framed and finished with a decorative hanging bow. Both designs feature the wonderful new Silent Cinema fabric collection by Jenean Morrison for Free Spirit Fabrics. And, here's the best part... well, maybe not the best part - the best part is probably the beautiful Silent Cinema fabric, but equally cool: these are super-duper lightweight and easy to handle and hang, because the inside is construction-grade rigid insulation foam board.
What are gypsies often known for? Traveling. And what do you need for traveling? A beautiful bag. Our soft and slouchy boho bag blends seven different fabric designs into the ultimate dramatic statement: color, pattern and texture combine from all sides. Lightweight batting between layers keeps keeps the shape without losing the cush. And a row of perky pom poms along the top edge marks this as one super creative carry-all.
I've worn glasses since I was about eight years old, which means I have absolutely no memory of what it is like to wake up and be able to see across the room. It also means, I'm a big fan of the eyeglass case because it's the best way I've found to keep track of my eyeglasses or sunglasses. Plus, it protects them when I need to toss a pair of into my bag. This fast and easy project would also make a perfect gift or a craft fair/boutique item to sell. I say this since everyone I showed my sample to wanted to keep it! We added a cute dangling fob made of of leather and beads
Why must Halloween totes only come in the shape of big plastic pumpkins? Surveys say ghosts, ghouls and well-dressed witches overwhelmingly prefer a beautiful bag. Whether you're carrying magic pumpkins and eye of newt, a few spell-binding books, or oodles of Halloween candy, this tote is the perfect choice. Raw-edged ruffles made from Jelly Roll strips decorate both sides along with a bright strip of reflective tape to catch the beam of a headlight or flashlight. Fully lined, it's just as pretty inside as out.
