Home Decor sewing projects are a way to infuse your personality into your home. They give guests a peek into your personality as they help you turn your house into a true home. You can take this concept to another, one-of-a-kind level by filling your home with some of your own hand-made sewing projects. Here, we will take a look at 8 easy options to get you started on creating your own hand-made sewing decor.
1. Framed Flowers
The first sewing project on our list is great if you like embroidering. You’ll want a white background to work on, an embroidery needle, and a few different colors. Yellow works well for flower centers, green for leaves, and your favorite colors for the petals. You might also want some black thread for outlining the flowers.
For the background, you might want to keep things in a rectangular shape to make it easier to frame later. This piece of decor with simple flowers is a great addition to children’s rooms especially.
2. Hanging Moon Decor
Moons and stars are a great way to add a whimsical touch to any decor. Even better than a simple moon, though, is one that you make yourself and is entirely unique. That’s why instead of simply sewing a stuffed moon for your home, a patchwork moon can be even more intriguing.
The best way to start this project is to sew small patches of fabric together into one large piece. Then, you can cut the larger piece into two shapes of a crescent moon and sew them together. Don’t forget to add stuffing to give your piece some shape!
3. Make Your Own Tablecloth
One of the easiest topics on our list is to make a tablecloth. Making your own tablecloth has a clear benefit in the fact that you can choose whatever fabric fits your fancy. You can use something that is bright and colorful or deeper and more sophisticated. If you want to take an extra step to create something rare, you could always use the same patchwork idea from the moon project.
When you are making a tablecloth, you don’t necessarily have to do any sewing, but it can be helpful to sew the edges to prevent fraying.
4. Decorative Coasters
With a custom tablecloth in your dining room, it only makes sense to have your own do-it-yourself coasters for your coffee table.
Unlike a tablecloth, though, you’ll want to use layers of a thicker fabric to ensure that moisture won’t just leak through onto your table. You can simply sew them together in squares for an effective coaster.
Since these are fabric coasters, it is important to remember to throw them in the washer from time to time to keep them looking like new.
5. Patchwork Table Runner
If a tablecloth isn’t exactly what fits your dining room’s style, a patchwork table runner might be just the thing. A table runner doesn’t cover the entire table as a tablecloth does. Instead, it covers a portion – usually the center – of a table.
To make a patchwork table runner, you would follow the same steps you might take to make a patchwork quilt. The biggest difference is the size and possibly the shape if you don’t want a standard table runner.
6. Hanging Hearts
A big part of any home is love. What better way to show that than to make heart decorations to hang in your home? For these, you’ll need felt, thread, a ribbon, and stuffing. Cut out two heart shapes of the same color felt and start to sew them together. Before you seal them up completely, make sure to add the stuffing into them. You can then add a ribbon loop onto the heart for hanging.
7. Easy Sewing Curtains
Sewing curtains is a great way to add a little character to a home without too much hassle. You can use sheer fabric to allow more light in your home. You could also use heavier fabric like satin to make the perfect darkening agents in a bedroom, for example.
8. Envelope Pillow
Envelope pillows are a little different from the sham cases you might use on your bed right now. Instead of having a completely open side, these pillowcases have an open side with a fold to keep the pillow secure in the case. You can create these in much the same way as you would a standard sham pillow case. The biggest difference is that you’ll want to make sure you leave enough fabric for the fold of the envelope. These can be decorated any way you want and made for full pillows or smaller throw pillows.
That’s the end of this roundup of home decor sewing projects. Hopefully you’ll find some inspiration and ideas for adding a little of your personality to your home. And remember, if you’re looking to decorate your table and you don’t have the sewing skills for any of these projects or if you simply don’t have the time to create them, Bright Settings has you covered. They can make any size or shape tablecloth you want from any of their 300+ fabrics.
