Sewing as Practical Artistry
Learning to sew is a useful skill. Whether economics is a factor - saving money, or the satisfaction of self-reliance, or even a need for an outlet for creative self-expression, the knowledge that sewing skills can bring can satisfy many reasons for acquiring this most ancient of practiced crafts.

Spring and Summer Wreaths
Easy to make and cost-effective, a front door wreath beckons "welcome" to visitors. A home facade is instantly updated with lively color and a nod to the change of seasons. Placed on a mantel, a wreath is a time-honored festive focal point.

More Spring Sewing Ideas
"Oh, spring has sprung, the grass is riz, wonder where the flowers is?" This lovely rhyme reminds that winter stubbornly clings to northern climes amid fleeting hope for the first warmth of spring. No matter, fabric stores and online sellers let us know that spring is here with gorgeous fabrics.

Motherís Day Gift Ideas to Sew
Motherís Day is approaching and kids (of all ages) want to present a special heart felt gift to their moms. Simple and inexpensive handmade gifts are especially cherished by moms everywhere.

Sewing Room Budget Organizing
A designated sewing room or a space in a room dedicated exclusively to sewing is one of lifeís pleasures to those who sew. Along with this treasured space comes the task of keeping all things related to sewing tidy and accessible to allow for inspiration, creativity and productive sewing efforts.

Shibori Tie Dyeing
Shibori is a Japanese hand dyeing technique that involves folding, twisting or bunching cloth, binding it, then dyeing using an indigo dye. Different than the multi-colored tie-dyeing psychedelic creations of the anti-establishment youth of the 1960ís, Shibori uses indigo dye on light colored cloth.

Easy Decorative Pillows
Just as winter gives up its chilly grip and fades into the first hints of warm breezes and tentative new growths of spring, so too can simple changes in the fabric colors and patterns that cover our cushy decorative pillows promote the new seasonís sensibilities.

Repurpose Jeans Back Pockets
Repurposing old denim jeans, particularly their wonderful back pockets, is a sustainable way to make use of once favorite jeans. Old jeans can be cut up and refashioned in numerous ways for sure, however the back pockets can be incorporated into so many functional and creative sewing projects.

Thread Types and Uses
Thread is thread, right? Practically any continuous spun twisted thin filament can be used as thread when needed. Since thread, of whatever kind, literally holds everything together it is important to try and match the sewing thread to the specific sewing project.

Test Drive Your Ready-made Paper Pattern
Using left over fabric pieces designated as scraps, an ignominiously undeserved title for usable fabric pieces, or inexpensive cotton muslin can test if a ready-made paper pattern will yield the desired results before committing to cutting what may be very expensive or one of a kind fashion fabric.
