Double Tier Half Apron with Rick Rack Details

Monday, 09 July 2018 1:00

Double tier means double the fun. We used a killer combination of quilting cottons from the Hank & Clementine collection for Michael Miller Fabrics – courtesy of our friends at Fat Quarter Shop. The scrumptious sherbet colors give this flouncy little apron just the right blast of summer sass. There are two layers, both fully lined, with a wide waistband and generous ties. And check out that jaunty diagonal pocket!

The Quick & Easy Angela Bag

Friday, 06 July 2018 1:00

This cute tall and narrow tote is named after my very favorite Angela, my oldest daughter. She designed the bag with a bit o' help from her very favorite aunt. Together they created a simple yet stylish shoulder bag, using Angela's own stash of fave fabric scraps and cotton webbing for the strap. We thought it turned out so well, we asked the designer's permission to share it with you. She graciously agreed to let us re-create the bag, and even let us pick our own fabric. I guess the whole 'designer thing' hasn't gone to her head yet, causing her to throw scissors across the room and shriek, "Tell that Klum woman and Tim what's-his-name to get me some fabric I can work with!!! " If you want to make your very own Angela Bag, you get to pick your own fabric too... and no one will throw scissors at you – I promise.

Land Noodles in Cozy Cuddle

Thursday, 05 July 2018 1:00

We’ve all seen those long foam pool noodles. They’re the fun and colorful floats in the world of water. We’ve invited them inside with our exclusive Land Noodles™. Thin, soft, and flexible, they're made with rolled batting wrapped in cozy Cuddle luxury plush fleece from Shannon Fabrics. We picked five combinations in a variety of prints and textures. With Land Noodles™, you’ll still be floating, but it will be on a cloud of softness. 

Closet Hanger Safe for Travel & Home

Tuesday, 03 July 2018 1:00

We originally designed this clever little storage solution for frequent travelers. It's perfect to slip onto a hotel hanger, fill with your valuables, then cover up with a hanging garment. But it works equally well in your own closet. It's also a great way – when traveling or when planning your daily work wardrobe – to collect all the accessories that go with a particular outfit. Put lingerie, jewelry, scarves and belts into the zippered and slip-in pockets, then hang up the outfit itself over the Safe. Everything you need for that day's outfit in one handy place! Even with double zippers, clever pockets, ribbon ties, and more, our Hanger Safe is surprisingly easy to make.

The S4H Boho Bandana Bag

Monday, 02 July 2018 1:00

The quintessential bandana. It can be a head scarf or a neck tie. It can protect your nose and mouth in a dust storm. It can decorate a straw hat. And now… it can be a pretty sack-style shoulder bag! This fast and easy project is excellent for young kids or anyone just learning to sew. The panels are simply layered and secured with an X Marks The Spot quilting seam. All exterior seams and the top of the bag are bound raw edges! It just doesn’t get any simpler than this. 

Beach Duffle Backpack

Friday, 29 June 2018 1:00

It’s a duffle and a backpack in one! The drawcord top looks great and makes it fast and easy to load and unload the bag’s contents. Then, slip it on as a backpack for hands-free strolling to the beach (or river or park or....) and back again. We love all the clever fussy cutting we were able to do with our three Neptune and the Mermaid fabrics. Front and center is the vintage diver plunging into the ocean waves of the pocket panel. A bit more hidden, but nonetheless clever, are lining panels with their hints of a sly octopus. 

Bib and Burp Cloth Matched Set

Thursday, 28 June 2018 1:00

It’s the perfect “protection pair.” A bib for baby and a burp cloth for the person holding baby! And, who says keeping clean has to be boring? We used two coordinating designer cottons with a layer of soft cotton batting in between. It’s extremely washable and extremely beautiful - and just a wee bit more fashionable that slinging a cloth diaper or dish towel over your shoulder. Cute and clean – that is a perfect pair. 

Shoe Bag & Lingerie Bag Travel Set with Appliqués

Wednesday, 27 June 2018 1:00

These days, packing to travel can be a challenge since bringing more than one smallish bag can cost a pretty penny. Being a smart organizer has become more important than ever. Everything needs to go into one suitcase as neat and tidy as possible. This makes our shoe and lingerie bags a travel necessity. Both are lined, and both feature cute appliqués to identify the contents. 

Oilcloth Pillows for Patio Living

Tuesday, 26 June 2018 1:00

Oilcloth, that classic shiny fabric from grandma’s kitchen, is back in a big way. The bold designs and super bright colors are a perfect combo to add a blast o' happy to any room. How could you look at giant red chili peppers against a field of sunshine yellow and not smile?! Plus, because oilcloth is water resistant with a wipe-clean surface, it’s ideal for patio living. With a few of our helpful tips and techniques, you’ll find that sewing with oilcloth is easier than you might think. For one thing, there’s no edge finishing because it doesn’t ravel (yay!). Turn up the fun-o-meter to 10, and add a little happiness to your outdoor décor with these reversible pillows.
