The art and craft of sewing is one that many people associated with making traditional items such as quilts, clothing, furniture covers and even bedding. You can also use sewing as a way to create some truly unique items that are ideal for showcasing in your home or even giving as handmade gifts to others.
One way to use sewing to add a touch of style to an ordinary object is to take basic pillows and transform them in to works of art; simply by adding the right stitches in the right mix of colors. You can use a plain white throw pillow and adorn the edges and center of the pillow with various designs using nothing more than a needle and colored thread. This can create truly customized pieces that can be made to coordinate with any couch, chair or even bedding set.
Though sewing is associated with making clothing, you can use the craft of sewing to take personalizing clothing items on step farther. By sewing names, designs and patterns on to clothing items not typically embroidered or sewed by hand, you can make traditional items look brand new and unique. Sewing designs on the back pockets of blue jeans, sewing names to the labels of jackets and even sewing patterns on hats and scarves will make everyday items seem all the more special.If you like what you see, keep going: Sewing FO – Throw Pillows!
