DIY Pin Tucked Duvet Cover

DIY Pin Tucked Duvet Cover
A New Year brings new things. For me, it was a duvet cover. I made an impulse buy of a beautiful Paisley Duvet Cover at TJ Maxx just the other day. I brought home my treasure, dropped everything and put it on my comforter. After admiring my bed for about a day, I slowly started to realize that I had purchased something that I had not budgeted for, spent too much money on($40 is a LOT of money to me), and, of all things, that I could easily make myself. So, sadly, I returned my beautiful Paisley duvet and started researching on the internet. The price for this one was way out of my budget, and this style is no longer available through Anthropologie. I also found that Target carries a line called 'Kissing Pleat" for $70-$80 and Wal-Mart's Better Homes and Gardens line has a pleated comforter in-stores, or at least the one by me, for about $60-$80. So, I went out on the town... First, I went out and bought some PLAIN flat sheets from -GASP- Wal-Mart. It should come out looking like this. Related:  sewing

Sewing: Heirloom Cut Chenille Baby Blanket I first saw a blanket like this at a baby shower for a friend's first baby boy. Our mutual friend, Joyce, gifted it and I was so amazed she had made it! I hadn't seen anything like it and thought it had such a beautiful vintage feel. As I was composing my nesting list I thought about including a cut chenille blanket like this. I chose Amy Butler's home decor fabric, August Fields, in Tangerine/Wild Poppies. The blanket is 45"x45", a generous size for using as a play mat and transitioning to a nap or lap blanket when she is older. I couldn't find a tutorial online for a blanket like this so I've created one here (click below to jump). Link to the Tutorial below by clicking on "Read More." If you make one of these cut chenille blankets I would love to see photos! To make an Heirloom Cut Chenille Baby Blanket you will need: Select three cotton flannel fabrics that coordinate with your primary print. NOTE: YOU MUST SEW AND CUT THE FLANNEL ON THE BIAS FOR IT TO FRAY PROPERLY.

It’s nice and heavy-weight, the perfect size for all my stuff, annnnd…… It’s reversible! Yay! It’s good to have options. Here are the TOTE bag versions we’ve tried so far…. This time around we’ll make it: • reversible (similar to having a lining) • color-blocked on the outside with heavy Duck Cloth (read more about duck cloth and other fabrics in my book) • DIY handles Summer, Summer, Summer time. Let’s get started. Start by cutting all your bag pieces. The reversible bag is basically two separate bags, sewn together at the top. Decide what size you’d like for your bag. Start by sewing the handles. If you’re using lightweight fabrics, place right sides of the fabric together and sew down each side. However, with heavy duck cloth it’s very difficult to pull the fabric right-side out. Now piece together the bag fronts and backs…. Now your bag pieces are ready to assemble. Then Box out the bottom of each bag, about 2 1/2 inches on each side.

Sewing with Knits...It CAN Be Fun! January 6th, 2009 Email 3 users recommend Use a fusible knit interfacing on the wrong side of your knits before sewing buttonholes. Shannon Dennis Use ballpoint or stretch needles when sewing knits to avoid skipped stitches and crooked-looking seams. Using twin stretch needles to topstitch not only secures your stitch but also reduces the bulk of heavy knits and gives a professional-looking finish! Photo: Shannon Dennis Knits encompass everything from Polarfleece to T-shirts and from "slinky" to sweater fabric. First, use the correct needle. For seams, I have found that what works best is creating the seam with the appropriate seam allowance then topstitching or edgestitching. Stitch length is an important component as well. Sewing buttonholes on knit requires one simple step. The perks of sewing with knits are, to me, endless.

Learn How To Sew A Rolled Hem A rolled hem is a very small hem made up of two folds. It can be really tricky to sew since each fold is teeny tiny. Many sewing machines have a rolled hem foot that curves and folds the fabric as you sew, but I find that way of sewing it to be very fussy and difficult to control. This is my personal preferred method for a rolled hem and I find it works perfectly every time. Step 1: On the hem of your garment, stitch a straight line 1/4″ smaller from the desired hem allowance. Step 2: Fold the stitch line to the wrong side of the fabric and press with an iron. Step 3: Return to your sewing machine and stitch directly on top of the first stitch line. Step 4: After stitching, press the entire hem with the iron again. Step 5: Trim off the extra fabric from the hem, cutting right up to the stitch line. Step 6: Fold the hem again, rolling the stitching from step 5 to the wrong side and leaving a clean unstitched seam on the right side of the fabric.
