There's just nothing like the warmth that handmade touches give to a home, is there? Sweetwater's Simple Home book offers 35 lovely projects that are beginner as well as experienced stitcher friendly and simply quick to make. Designed by Sweetwater's creative mom and daughters trio, you'll find practical, yet pretty projects for every room. Come with us on a sewing journey!
To start our journey, we love the organization projects in this book! If you live in a 'no plastic bags' zone, you'll make good use of the Market Tote Bag shown above. Totes are great for organizing projects at home, too. Make several, add a peg rack to your wall, then put everything you need in cozy handmade totes and hang them up so they're ready to grab and sew. Now you've created Home Decor and sewing inspiration, too! For more bagging delight, check out the Drawstring Bag with pockets.
Moving on around the house, for your office or sewing studio, there's a fabulous handled stand-on-it's-own tote for your Office Accessories, a really nice Notepad Cover and instructions for a Covered Office Chair. A little something for every spot that needs cleaning & brightening!
Now that you're organized, make some handmade pretties for your kitchen including this adorable Newsprint Apron above, Embellished Towels, sweet Circle Potholders and . . .
these beautiful Scallop Placemats! We love the scallop on the wide edge. So perfect for adding a bit of color to a print or using a solid for the mat and a print for the scallop or combining two prints as you see here. Your kitchen will be ready to show off in no time. That's just a little taste - you'll find lots more in the book!
Now that you've warmed up the whole house with beautiful handmade yummies, it's time to tuck you into bed under a charming Master Suite Quilt. Warm reds and beiges combine to give this cover a lovely vintage look, but you can use brights, batiks or any print you please. Sleep tight, you've earned a good rest in your cozy new Simple Home!
