Yoga Mat Tote

You can't sit and sew home decor projects all day long. Sometimes you need an exercise break ... but not a break from style. We fell head-over-heels for Amy Butler's Love fabric collection, and knew it would be perfect for our yoga tote. We then calmly meditated on the easiest instructions with the most stylish details. The result guarantees good karma for all who tote this tote to class.

If your favorite teen were granted three wishes from her/his own personal genie, what would they be? Twelve fingers to allow for faster texting? A school day, which started at noon and ended at 1:00 with an hour for lunch? That all days would be good hair days? The options are likely as endless as a late-night phone call. Whip up a few of these darling tufted and tasseled genie pillows and see what wishes come true for you.

Welcome your guests to their seats with a stylish place card and a little surprise. These favor bags are so easy and quick to make; it took only one hour to make and finish enough for six place settings. This is a great fabric scrap project. One bag uses just a 6" x 13" piece of fabric. Use up leftovers from our Thanksgiving Arts & Crafts style napkin tutorials or try contrasting fabric.

Pretty Prints Please: Butterfly Pillow Shams

Pillow shams are a pretty way to keep things tidy up top. Bigger than a toss pillow, they not only contain a regular size bed pillow inside, they're large enough to cover up other pillows in regular pillowcases underneath. Our four-patch shams mirror the design of the Pretty Prints Please Butterfly Duvet. But of course, you can create your own design to match your room, someone's favorite colors, or even to celebrate a favorite hobby or animal or school: patchwork ponies or volleyballs or team mascots.

Pretty Prints Please: Patchwork Butterfly Duvet

Tuesday, 27 October 2009 9:00

The biggest item in most bedrooms is the bed, therefore, it ranks as star-of-the-show in our teen room makeover. Plus, as anyone who knows a teen understands (or anyone who remembers being a teen); many, many hours are spent in said bed. In fact, I think most of the day would be spent there given Mom's permission and a nearby bag of Doritos® for sustenance. Our patchwork duvet is made from a dozen different fabric cuts, but they're cleverly sized into just three simple panels.

Monogram Week: How to Monogram a Plush Towel

Monogrammed towels lend a lush and elegant accent to any bathroom. And they make fabulous gifts for newlyweds or an anniversary. The only problem is they're often far too pretty to actually use. I've gotten past this problem by pretending my bathroom is really part of a luxury suite at a five-star resort. This image is usually shattered when my teenage son wanders through the door in his boxers looking for toothpaste. If monogrammed towels keep me close to my dream ... I'm usin' 'em!

The neighborhood ghosts and goblins are sure to be impressed.

Your choices for Halloween treat bags are many and varied: paper pouches, hard plastic pumpkins, even the old-standby: a pillowcase. But none of those is as cute as our reversible fabric tote. The easy patchwork pattern is bright and fun, but still filled with your favorite Halloween icons, like bats and spiders and moons. The heavy-duty webbing handles mean your little goblins can fill up with lots of tasty treats. And, it's a Green Halloween alternative to all the traditional throw-away decorations.
