5 Tips For Sewing With Burlap & An Easy Pillow Tutorial

burlap pillow 500 5 Tips For Sewing With Burlap & An Easy Pillow TutorialBurlap, also known as Hessian cloth has always been a utilitarian type of fabric. In the past, burlap was more known for its uses in sandbagging, wrapping exposed tree roots  for transportation and for shipping coffee and tobacco. More recently, lowly burlap has completely reinvented itself into a shabby chic fabric used in weddings, home decor and accessories.

The latest burlap designs are bright and cheery and perfect for crafts, and easy sew projects. A burlap pillow is easy to make and even easier to embellish.  Wrap lace, ribbon or vintage fabric pieces around the pillow for a quick way to add color. If a more permanent finish is required, audition the embellishments on the front pillow piece and stitch in place prior to construction.

Use burlap to make the Petite Planters as seen in the Apr/May 2014 issue of Sew News. Download the pattern and herb label designs for FREE at sewnews.com/web_extras!

herb 500  298x300 5 Tips For Sewing With Burlap & An Easy Pillow TutorialA few tips for sewing with burlap

  • Use a liquid seam sealant to prevent edges from fraying.
  • Use a lightweight interfacing such as a fusible knit interfacing to prevent excessive stretching of the burlap.
  • A serger can be used when making items with burlap, and gives a clean finish. If there’s no serger available a zigzag stitch on a sewing machine will finish the edges sufficiently.
  • When ironing burlap use a cotton or wool setting with light steam for removal of wrinkles.
  • Lightly spot clean any soiled items, don’t wash burlap projects.

Here is an easy project to update an outdoor living area, a sunny living room or a guest bedroom.

Materials

  • 1 yard of burlap (See “Sources”)
  • Coordinating thread
  • Needle: 80/12
  • Fusible knit interfacing (see “Sources”)
  • Serger (optional)

Enter To Win Cloth by Cassandra Ellis!

Cloth91096J Enter To Win Cloth by Cassandra Ellis!I had the treat of getting an advanced copy of the book Cloth by Cassandra Ellis. I am in love with it’s gorgeous photos and simple beauty of the projects.

Please read below for a review and make a comment as to what is your favorite textile to use or maybe one that you’ve always wanted to make something out of. One lucky winner will be picked to win Cloth by Cassandra Ellis.

Plus, stay tuned to the Sew News blog for a Meet the Designer interview next week with Cassandra Ellis and get another try at winning this book.

Cassandra Ellis is a designer and maker of high-end quilts and home wares. Originally from New Zealand, she now runs her own design studio where she teaches contemporary craft and interiors workshops.

This is a beautiful book. Not an ordinary DIY, craft/home dec book with spare, white back drop photos and cheeky text. Cloth is lush with rich, dreamy photos by Catherine Gratwicke and intelligent, thoughtful text (how may craft books open with a poem by Yeats?) It was a visual pleasure to look through the book. And, easy to image that I could and more importantly, would make the projects Ellis offers. Cloth is broken down in five sections: Cotton, Wool, Silk, Hide and Linen. There is a brief introduction to each textile followed by a short history, making this book part textbook, but in no way written in a dry, dull manner. Ellis tell the reader of the individual textiles production, current and past uses and as in the case of silk the different types. Of which there are many.

The projects are all relatively easy, from bags, to oven mitts, sachets, pillows, aprons, bedding and more. Many of the projects focus on reclaimed, vintage or thrifted fabric and textiles. But, all the projects would work well with modern fabric with clean, bold lines.  Patterns are included in the book and the instructions are written in a clear and uncluttered tone. Measurements (for the advanced copy) are in metric. Each project ends with “Design Thoughts” with tips, ideas and ways to further embellish the project.

Also included is a helpful dye and tool kit section. Listing items needed to make the projects as well as equipment needed to dye textiles.

The sections are layout according to fabric type

Cotton

Screen Shot 2 Enter To Win Cloth by Cassandra Ellis!The section on cotton has eight projects. Tote bag, gauze tent, rug, apron, Furoshiki a Japanese carrying device, chair cushion, pillow, bedding and small purses.

Wool

Screen Shot 3 copy Enter To Win Cloth by Cassandra Ellis!Projects include hand dyed guaze panel, overnight bag, wool blanket pillows, pet bed, a pouffe (not a chair, not a cushion but a pouf!) and oven mitts.

Silk

Screen Shot21 Enter To Win Cloth by Cassandra Ellis!The lovely silk projects include the following: silk wheat bags, sachets, kimono silk quilt, sari curtains, tea stained drawstring bags, and a shawl.

Hidecloth leather screen shot  Enter To Win Cloth by Cassandra Ellis!The Hide section is particularly nice bringing attention to working with leather and sheepskin. There are five projects here; a journal, 3 bags, and a covered ottoman.

LinenScreen Shot 4 Enter To Win Cloth by Cassandra Ellis!Headboard or curtain panel, hand dyed cushions, slippers, duvet cover and pillowcases, Hemp napkins, and how to reupholster chairs.

All the projects in the book make the most of the textile being highlighted. The instructions are easy to follow and there is a wonderful resource guide that contains links and addresses to further research textiles, antique fabrics and sources to find extraordinary fabrics to use for your own projects.

Cloth would be a welcome addition to any sewing or home decor library. If you would like to be entered to win a copy of Cloth please make a comment on what your favorite textile to work with is. One winner will be picked and announced next Friday.

Good Luck!

Learn to Sew a Zippered Cosmetic Bag with Jessie!

Tomorrow, our editorial assistant Jessie is hitting the road and heading to Original Sewing & Quilt Expo in Atlanta at the Gwinnett Center! Jessie will be in Make-It Center Thursday through Saturday. Here’s Jessie in Fort Worth, TX last year with one of our visitors to the Make-It Center. As you might be able to tell by the photo below, Jessie is a ton of fun to sew and hang out with!

At the Expo in Atlanta, you can come and stitch up a mini version of one of our favorite projects from Sew it All, Season 7. In Episode 704, “Box Bag,” Stacy Schlyer of the blog Stacy Sews shows how to make an adorable zippered bag with a clever handle that lets you hang up the bag on any hook or doorknob. (Find the FREE tutorial here!) DSC 0409 1024x685 Learn to Sew a Zippered Cosmetic Bag with Jessie! It’s such a quick and fun project that also makes a wonderful gift. Depending on the fabric you use and the recipient, it makes a great travel make-up bag, shaving kit, pencil bag or portable bag for your sewing supplies (my favorite use!). It also takes less than a yard of fabric, so it’s a great stash-buster too!

Today Jessie got some teaching practice by showing me how to make the mini version of the bag that we’ll be sewing in the Make-It Center. It’s fun and easy and sews up quickly. Here’s my finished masterpiece in very elegant and sophisticated doughnut-print fabric! boxbag 1024x986 Learn to Sew a Zippered Cosmetic Bag with Jessie!

finished 2  300x283 Fun With Cuddle Fabrics   Infinity Scarf Tutorial & Giveaway!

First a few tips when sewing with Cuddle Fabric.

  1. Cuddle fabric does shed. Shake the fabric out once you get it to free loose ‘fur’. If you have a hand vac for your sewing room use it to pick up excess fur around your sewing area or use a lint roller to pick up fibers.
  2. This fabric does shift, but takes well to pinning so don’t hesitate to pin to keep layers from shifting.
  3. Use a ball point needle when sewing Cuddle fabric.
  4. Don’t use an iron without a pressing cloth, if you do use an iron keep the temperature low.

For more great tips on sewing with Cuddle fabric check out the Cuddle Tips and Tricks page from Shanon Fabrics, and find more tutorials for this super fun fabric!

Supplies for an Infinity Scarf

Long Scarf – finished, scarf measures 47″ around and 14″ wide

  1. Fabric – 15″ x 84″ of Cuddle Fabric
  2. Straight pins
  3. Matching thread
  4. Removable fabric marker

Sew It

  1. Fold fabric in half, with right sides of fabric facing each other and matching long cut edges. Pin together.
  2. Beginning 2″ from one end, stitch long edge in a ½” seam. Stop stitching 2″ from other end.
  3. Turn scarf right side out.photo7 225x300 Fun With Cuddle Fabrics   Infinity Scarf Tutorial & Giveaway!
  4. Open short ends of scarf.
  5. Place short ends with right sides together, lining up cut edges. Pin.
