Ribbon Wrapped Bucket Bag with Drawcord Top: Renaissance Ribbons

Monday, 18 September 2017 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 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.

This colorful mini bolster is a great start to your happiness project. It looks fancy with its ruched center panel, piping accents, and pony tail ends, but it's easier than you might think... and easy makes us happy!

Reversible Knit Baby Blanket featuring Coats Eloflex Thread

Wednesday, 13 September 2017 2:00

Soft and sweet describes this easy to assemble knit blanket. Made from 15 wide and narrow panels in three coordinating knits, the blanket layers together in a snap. We used the brand new Eloflex stretchable thread from Coats, which kept our seams and hem flat and pucker-free. The blanket’s panels are cleverly sandwiched and topstitched so all the horizontal seams are finished front and back. 

Plump Pillows with Charm Pack Ruffles

Tuesday, 12 September 2017 1:00

Charm squares are just that: charming little chunks of fabric, 5" x 5" squares from all the patterns and colorways within a given fabric collection. A standard charm pack usually comes with approximately 42 pre-cut 5" x 5" squares. They're a real time-saver and can make patchworking projects a delight. We used a charm pack in a unique way for this very quick and easy pillow project. The pillow front and back is made with just two simple yardage cuts. Then, you'll stitch charm squares end-to-end to create the ruffle strip. Fast, fun, and with a fantastically colorful result. 

Quilted Accordion Pouch for Jewelry, Lingerie & More

Monday, 11 September 2017 1:00

This unique expandable pouch is based on a vintage silk stockings holder. Yep! But, since most of us are a little low on silk stockings we need to store, its five pockets are also excellent for jewelry, small lingerie items, make-up or other special trinkets. Accordion out to drop things into the pockets; accordion in, and snap closed. Okay, admit it, you just made a little opening-and-closing sound effect when you read that, didn’t you? And maybe a little wavy motion in and out with your hands? It’s alright; I did too. Accccccoooordion! 

DIY Wedge Espadrilles

Friday, 08 September 2017 1:00

Think espadrilles are just for summer? Think again! With a closed heel, a stacked ribbon toe in fabulous fall colors, and a matching ribbon ankle strap, your new shoes are just hours away. Dritz® Espadrille Wedges are DIY magic. Don’t you dare roll your eyes! Making your own shoes is easier and more fun than you might imagine. We were skeptical at first too. I mean… shoes?! Cobblers do that, right?! We have no business in the shoe business. But, Dritz® has thought through all the hard stuff, like providing the soles and the best construction tools, and figuring out the patterns; leaving you the clever, creative part. Very chic, very simple. Make a pair for all your favorite outfits.

Mesh Laundry Bags in Two Sizes

Thursday, 07 September 2017 1:00

Mesh laundry bags to collect your washables are certainly readily available in stores and online, and they can be relatively inexpensive to purchase. However, they usually aren't as well-made as you'd like, or maybe you need a special teeny-tiny size for baby socks, or want a fun color to tempt an otherwise messy teen to pick up his underwear. Time to bust out a few of your own. They're super easy; we made our two samples in nothing flat. 

Hot Pads with Ribbon & Decorative Stitch Accents

Friday, 01 September 2017 1:00

Hot pads provide a great small surface to experiment with some embellishment. Obviously, since they will be around a heat source, you can’t go wild, but subtle touches are a nice way to inject a little style into these kitchen necessities. We used ribbon and decorative stitching. Remember, natural fibers are best as you don’t want to mix in any substrates that could easily melt. We selected linen and cotton for our fabrics and cotton twill tapes for the ribbon.

Our Classic Safari Duffle

Tuesday, 29 August 2017 1:00

Can't you picture Harrison Ford slinging this amazing duffle over his shoulder as Indiana Jones?! We blended heavy canvas and faux leather with webbing and brass zipper accents for the dashing exterior. Inside is a tough rip-stop nylon lining. Even if you're not a world-renowned archeologist and adventurer, this bag is is great way to pack your stuff, whether you're heading across town to the gym or getting away for the weekend. The holidays are coming up, and this would make a very nice gift for your personal action hero. The combination of fabrics, colors and textures has the perfect feel – a little bit retro and a whole lot cool.
