Easy Dorm Room Decorations star
Late summer and early fall are exciting times for first time college students moving into a dorm room or campus apartment. Here are some easy to sew DIY projects to try out that reflect a personal style.

Fall Prims to Sew star
Prims are a form of folk art - handmade decorative crafts assembled from fabrics of muted gingham, plaids, natural linens, tea-colored muslin, and burlap. Often accented with weathered boards, punched tins, and tied with twine of jute or raffia - prim crafts suggest a nostalgia for times past.

Festive Fabric Wreaths star
Purchased wreath frames of foam, straw or wire and decorated with fabric trims are easy to create and display. Using bits of leftover fabric and ribbon, trimmed with hand stitched ornaments or folded fabric flowers are charming to make and provide a seasonal or celebratory home decoration.

Harvest Mantel Pennants star
The familiar colors of autumn displayed on a fireplace mantel can evoke the beauty of fall. Sew triangular shapes of fabrics chosen in the golds, yellows, oranges, browns and reds that remind us of the seasonal transition from the intense warmth of summer into cooler autumn days.

Sew Alphabet Letter Pillows star
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.

Sewing and Rag Rugs star
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 Closet Organizers star
Whether called a hanging wall or door organizer, closet organizer, or closet caddy these terms are all synonymous for serious storage solutions and organization. Clothes closets seem to get messy quickly no matter how initially organized. An easy solution to closet clutter is to sew organizers.
