There’s something about a fresh cut of fabric that makes me way happier than flowers ever could. Maybe it’s the possibilities of what it could become, or the pretty color, or a fabulous pattern… I don’t know, but I do know that I love a good sewing project. I’ve shared quite a few of them over the years here, so today we’re taking a look back at 20 sewing projects for all around the house.
Anytime I need to add a little something new to any of my spaces, I make a new pillow cover. It’s like the equivalent of buying new shoes, but cheaper! If you know how to install a zipper, you can make a new pillow cover in less than 15 minutes.
Want to up the fun factor? A bunting pillow cover will definitely do the trick. It’s a little more time intensive, but you can customize it with any colors and patterns to fit your room. Perfect for a kid’s room!
I sold about a bajillion of these pillows on Etsy – the dahlia pillow. They’re so pretty – and super simple to make with a handy dandy glue gun!
If you want to up the cute factor, adding pom pom fringe is the way to go. It’s super easy with my step-by-step tutorial.
Want to customize your fabric? Well you can do that, too – with a stamped pillow cover tutorial.
If you want even more control, make your own wood block stamp to make fabric exactly what you want.

Love it all! My sewing machine has been in the closet since December! We are moving in a few weeks, and I get to have my craft room…yay! So, pinning this for later!
Thank you as always for an awesome blog post.

Gina, I absolutely love your dahlia pillow – it is gorgeous! I wish that I had paid more attention to my mother when she was sewing all the time, but I wasn’t interested in sewing when I was younger. Now I am interested and my mother is now stuck with “teaching an old dog a new trick” 🙂 I’m learning – slowly, but learning 🙂
Can I ask you what make and model of sewing machine you own/use? Also, did the ruffler come with the sewing machine or it is a separate attachment that you had to purchase? I need to purchase a sewing machine and didn’t really know what to get. Thanks!
Love your pillows! I have sooo many now decorating my house.. but I can do some more:)
Thanks for great ideas!
