Upcycle Classic Women's Shirts
A very useful upcycle sewing project is to take a classic women's button-down shirt and re-fashion into a new trendy shirt, one that may fit better, be more in line with contemporary fashion and satisfy a creative urge to transform something old into something new.

Sewing Denim
Instantly familiar, endlessly versatile, at once old and new, the fabric we know as denim and the many clothes, accessories, and home items it has so readily adapted to, has enjoyed steady popularity since the mid 1800s.

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.

Serge It!
In an almost perfect marriage of practical function and elegant efficiency - the sewing machine and its machine sewing companion, the serger, combine to give the home sewer the best of all possible sewing worlds.

Sewing as Art
Together the sewer’s stitch and the weaver’s cloth results in more than the sum of its parts; culture is passed on, traditions preserved, the sewer’s skills remains intact. Textiles and their manipulation by sewing tell the story of the ages and reveal the very real and beautiful fabric of our lives

Applique for Embellishment
Applique designs, those smaller pieces of fabric overlaid onto a larger fabric background, are often seen on quilts however they can be used as whimsical decorations on clothing, elegant patterns on curtains or artistic expressions on throw pillows, totes and fabric purses.

Wide-leg to Skinny Jeans
The stiff, cuffed dungarees of the past used by cattlemen and miners, the 1950s and 60s youth subculture that adopted denim jeans in defiance, the bell-bottoms of the 70s and onto today’s boot-cut and skinny fashionably ripped jeans, these popular slacks experience never-ending fashion adjustments.

Simple Window Coverings
Unless the private unfettered view when looking out from a window is one of contemplative serenity - a serene pastoral scene, perhaps rippling waves at the edge of a pristine lake or of majestic snow-covered mountains, most windows benefit from some type of covering or enhancement.

Sewing, Personalized
Personalizing or claiming ownership of an item by an identifying mark has a long history with beginnings obscured in antiquity. Adding a monogram emblem originally was a way to claim an artwork, imprint a coin, identify an organization or guild, proclaim status, or certify a document’s authorship.

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.
