pipingstripedpillowIf you are a regular reader, you might have noticed that I love classic linen with bright, bold piping or serging. This pillow utilizes the piping not just around the edges but also as stripes across the pillow front. It’s simple to do. I made this pillow cover with an envelope opening on the back, which is my favorite pillow cover closure.

tagblanketYou may be wondering what a tag blanket is. It’s a blanket-like plaything for babies that utilizes soft fabrics and interesting ribbons, cords, lace and other things to stimulate babies visually and tactilely. This one is owl shaped because I was inspired by the owl fabric, but you can easily make one that’s a simple square or rectangle. Use short ribbons, long ribbons, lace, piping, cording, ric-rac — whatever you want! I braided some, twisted some, looped some, doubled some of them up. Just make it interesting however you can. Most sewers can probably find enough scrap items in their cabinet to whip something like this up for a nearby baby. Any baby will do.

car seat bagsIf you have a small child in a car seat, you have probably found yourself wishing there was a way to safely store things within their reach. One thing I regret is buying one without good, solid cup holders. At least having a little bag will provide a place to slip a sippy cup within reach. These dual bags can also hold books, toys and snacks. Best of all, they can easily be removed for washing. Cargo-style pockets allow for expandable space.

special-augEvery month we offer a fabric at a deep discount. For July, we have this fun frog and sports print that’s fantastic for kids!

Normally $7.47/yard, through July 31, 2014, it’s just $3.98/yard!

This is a Premier Prints cotton duck fabric with frogs playing various sports and sports-related terminology. Lots of fun for kids’ totes, aprons and decor.

pipingpillowsI love the simplicity and earthiness of linen, and adding a punch of color is really fun. (See, also, these napkins.) In this post, I’ll go over how to make a piped pillow cover with rounded edges (and square pillow form) and envelope back. We’ll go over the other pillows in the coming weeks.

kidsapronThere are many ways for a toddler to get messy and many ways a miniature apron can come in handy. My preschooler loves to help cook, though he hates to eat. Anything. Ever. This is a very simple apron pattern that is great for even a beginner. It’s reversible (although one side will have the Velcro), so feel free to use different fabrics on each side. Velcro makes putting it on easy for little ones. This apron should easily fit ages 3-5. The little boy pictured is about to turn 4. Read the rest of this entry »

stoolRecover a stool the easy, and nonpermanent, way. My stool is still in great shape, but I wanted a new look. I use this one for sewing and just redid my sewing area. This one has a Velcro closure. It makes for a bit of effort to get it on the seat, so if you want to wash your cover frequently, you might want to do an elastic edge underneath instead (see below).

determining curtain yardageThere are a lot of factors to consider when calculating yardage for draperies. I’ve gone over a few individual instances in various curtain posts on this blog (See these grommet curtains, rod pocket curtains and pinch pleat curtains), but what if someone wants to make similar curtains for a bigger window, requiring several widths of fabric? Or how do they take into account different prints? Read the rest of this entry »
