Does your pulse get faster when you get to the home decor fabrics at the fabric store? Do you pin home decorating ideas on Pinterest every time the season changes or a holiday approaches? You can pay someone to sew custom accessories and decor or you can have the fun of doing it yourself — once you learn, you can change up key decor items like pillows, slipcovered furniture, window treatments — Roman shades aren’t hard — as many times a year as you’d like, all the while prepping your dinner in between running seams!
Velvet pillows can be easily slipcovered with bright spring fabric, heavy draperies changed out with color-blocked and airy fabrics, and lampshades refreshed with new fabric designs. Smaller projects like table runners, placemats, and napkins and other customizable accessories can deck a home out for warm weather holidays or the cozy holidays of fall and early winter. A change of seasonal quilts draped over great room furniture makes a dramatic statement. Can’t you see a Christmas quilt on your favorite overstuffed chair?
Then, you can use any left over home dec fabric — or remnants on sale at the fabric store —and make a purse. Check out more ideas here, here, and here, and if you need to get your machine serviced before you start or if you'd like to invest in a new sewing machine with more features to sew, gather, and embellish your home decor projects, then come in and let us show you how to take your sewing to a new level.
