In the spirit of #sewnwithhart, Harts Fabric is spending the month of February making and collecting blankets and pillows to donate to our local SPCA! We put together a quick and easy blanket tutorial perfect for our four-legged friends! This blanket is super quick to sew and it a great size for fur-babies and human babies alike! Let’s get started!
Hello, Hart’s Fabric friends! I’m Alina from Alina Sewing + Design Co. I’m excited to share a pattern hack I’ve been envisioning and loving lately. Color blocking can be very trendy, but it can also look very classic. It’s also an easy way to give some personality to basic shapes. I’m using my Panama Tee Dress pattern in this tutorial, but you can apply these instructions to any pattern!
Ever since Coco Chanel incorporated nautical stripes into her 1917 collection, Breton-striped tees and dresses have been iconic. Often made up in navy, white, or black stripes, this look stays fresh and classic.
For a more fun and modern take on color blocking, you can also pair colorful stripes and polka dots or colorful solids. I’m going to show you how to color block the shoulders, but you could also do a section along the hems.
Let’s jump in!
You’ll need the front bodice, back bodice, and sleeve pattern pieces. I recommend tracing off a copy of each because we’ll be cutting the pattern apart.
First, decide where you want to color block. For this look, I drew my line just above the bottom of the armscye. Match the length of the seam line of the bodice and the sleeve to make sure that they will line up when sewn together.

Hi, everyone! Today we are back talking holiday entertaining. Could your table use a festive makeover? Greet your guests with these quilted placemats and sparkle napkins for a perfect holiday dinner or gift them to a special someone.
For our holiday decorating series, I wanted to deliver quick projects could easily be turned into gifts. When I started searching for inspiration, I saw many adorable ready-made options that I knew I could make for a fraction of the cost!
Today we are bringing you a super cute and functional dog bandana. Not only does it look adorable, it makes the perfect gift for your furry friends! The best part is, it slips right on your dog’s collar, easy peasy!
Have you always relied on store-bought piping for your sewing projects? It’s actually quite easy to make, especially if you want control over the color or texture of your piping.
This quick tutorial will show you how to make piping for your next project, as well as how to sew it on a curved seam. I’m using our newest pattern, Rue, as an example. Rue features these great style lines that gently curve down and across the bodice, and it’s the perfect occasion for a vintage touch. Piping really helps these seams pop!
Hello, fabric enthusiasts! I’m Tanya from the sewing blog, Mrs. Hughes. I love vintage fashions and wearing retro dresses, but I tend to stick with the “fit & flare” silhouette. I stepped a little out of my comfort zone with the Colette Phoebe — a 1960’s style shift dress/jumper. I wanted to add a detail to this dress without changing the pattern design and its retro style, so I decided to sew a button-on-belt and share how I made it with you.
