  • Make a Bottle Cozy

    December 10, 2010 by Britex Fabrics

    Are you looking for a last minute gift project? Brett from DesignSpongeOnline designed these easy-to-sew wine cozies. They are sewn using under ¼ of a yard of fabric, making them an ideal project to splurge on fancy-schmancy fabric, or to utilize your tag end stash scraps. Make one up as an alternative to a gift bag when presenting your pal with a bottle of wine or sparkling cider! As Cleopatra knew, everything looks more handsome when wrapped carefully in gorgeous textiles!

  • Baby Kimono Shoes

    homespun-threads.com designed these elfin slippers. These adorable wee shoes are perfect for the newest member of your family or community. You can make them as wild or as sweet as you’d like by varying the fabric. I can imagine them in rockin’ flames and coordinating Day of the Dead fabric, or maybe periwinkle stripes and coordinating silver stars & moons.
