We’re busy planning September’s Sewing for the Home projects and resources! Would you like to contribute? Do you love to sew for your home? Are you itching to use the latest home dec fabrics in fun ways? Do you have time to create a great tutorial in the next three weeks?

Contributors with original content get lots of fun traffic to their blog, some beautiful fabric (which doesn’t have to be used in your Sewing for the Home project) and our endless appreciation! Below are the types of new projects we’re looking for, or you can proprose one of your own.

  • Gussy up a lampshade
  • Recovering chairs
  • Hanging organizer for beds (to stash books, notebooks– hangs down from between mattresses)
  • Pillow variations (ruffles, tie backs, using thrifed shirts for button backs, reverse appliqué top, cording, etc.)
  • Fabric bulletin boards
  • Appliance covers (sewing machine, mixer, TV, etc.)
  • Innovative coasters
  • Unique table runners
  • Curtain variations (adding ribbon, ties, appliqué, etc.)
  • Fabric organizers
  • Patchwork potholders

Send us your proposal by Monday, August 18th. Tutorials need to be completed before September 8th. *Projects need to be new (never published)!
