On Tuesday Natalie will be showing you how to make quick and easy café curtains. These curtains are a great way to spruce up your home! Plus they don’t require a lot of sewing knowledge, so they are a great beginner project!

Then on Thursday we’ll have an easy piping tutorial! Creating your own piping is great way to really step up your home sewing projects. Perfect for pillows, box cushions, chairs, couches, and more! It only takes a little extra time to make your own piping, and it really adds an extra special professional touch to your project!

We hope you’re having fun sewing your Hart out! Don’t forget to send us pictures of your projects! We’ll be giving away $50 every week, you might win!

HI everyone!  We have another project for you during Quilting Week as part of our Sew Your Hart Out month here at Hart’s Fabric.

To make two standard placemats, we started  with one yard of Interweave Chambray in Brown.  Our chambray fabrics are woven using two solid colors resulting in a deep dimension of color.  We chose the brown because it is perfect for an Autumn table.  You’ll also need cotton batting.  We used the Quilter’s Dream cotton batting for this project; two pieces cut to 15″x19″.  Also needed are Schmetz Topstich needles size 12 and Aurifil Varigated Thread in Marrakesh.

Victory Patterns is an Independent Pattern company out of Toronto Canada run by one lovely lady named Christine. After many years teaching sewing lessons she quit her job as a costume maker to become a pattern maker and has put out 10 wonderfully different designs that we here at Harts, just love.  We have made many of her patterns and love they way they are laid out, and are very easy to follow. Some of her designs are really easy, and some are more difficult so there is a pattern that can full fill every sewists needs, plus they are all adorable.
