Sew Alphabet Letter Pillows
Whether fashioning fabric alphabet letters as a nursery wall decoration, or as fanciful throw pillows for a child’s or teen’s bedroom, or even as living room decorative pillows, there is something delightful and whimsical about seeing the A, B, C’s crafted in an colossal size.

Sew for Baby
Soft fabric sewn together with love can make an enduring gift for any baby. Most baby items are quick and easy to make to show you care and to welcome a new little one.

Sew Green
As we sew today, consider sewing ‘green,’ mindful of a concept of sustainable sewing – one that is heedful of and practical for our planet.

Sew Plaids
Sewing with plaids need not be frustrating. Simple matching of horizontal and vertical lines at every seam opening - side seams and the front notch on the arm scythe, for any patch pockets, pocket flaps, and welts, plus pinning and hand basting every seam, every time, ensures great results.

Sew Trendy Colors
Pantone® Color Institute gives us 10 trendy colors for spring 2017 after having surveyed talented designers and found a preference for bright colors and those that surround us naturally in springtime. The colors provide us the fashion equivalent of a riot of spring blossoms.

Sew with Summer Tropical Flair
Sewing for summer weather with airy and breezy cottons, linen types, hand-dyed batiks, Swiss batiste, and brightly colored tropical prints with vibrant coordinating solids all bring to mind those visions of barefoot living and dreamy seaside cabana suppers.

Sewing and Color’s Influence
Color subtly influences our perception of the world around us. Sewers may use this influence in fabric choices to evoke a desired response - blue tones are identified as cooling whereas reds are considered warming. Perceptions and reactions to color are myriad across age, gender, and culture.

Sewing and E-Patterns
E-patterns or online sewing patterns are convenient for a home sewer, often offered free or low-cost. However, a small stack of standard size 8.5 by 11 inch computer printing paper, printing ink, a reliable home printer and much clear tape for assembling a printed e-pattern are cost considerations.

Sewing and Rag Rugs
With rustic hospitality assembled into stunning folk art or unstructured design, unassuming strips of wool fabric, thin thread-worn bed linens, denim jeans and shirts made soft by much wearing, today’s modern t-shirts and more are economically transformed into humble and functional floor coverings.

Sewing and Reupholstering Basics
What has reupholstering got to do with sewing? Actually, everything! From choosing fabric type, determining how much fabric yardage to acquire, batting wraps, measuring, cutting, and some stitching there are many commonalities with sewing to consider when attempting a modest reupholstering project.
