DIY Curtains

We spend a great deal of our time looking at our curtains. Now that we are all spending time indoors, it is rather important that we enjoy what we are looking at. If you are a keen sewist looking to make a change to your living room or your bedroom, look no further. 

These DIY rod pocket curtains are the perfect project for anybody advanced in the craft. 

Here is a list of what you will need: 

  • Drapery fabric of your choice 
  • Thread to match
  • Matrical Scissors
  • Pencil (or a fabric marker) 
  • Measuring tape
  • Pins
  • An Iron

Now that you have all your bits and pieces, click here to see the whole DIY breakdown of how to get started on your lockdown project.

DIY Fabric Floor Mat

Another part of our house that we might be constantly looking at is the floor. Maybe your rug is a bit old, or you have just been looking at it for so long that it is about time for a change. Luckily as a sewist, you have the skills to make that change. 

Here is everything you will need for this new project: 

  • 1.3-1.8 meters of fabric (canvas or outdoor depending on your preference). You can alternate the measurements depending on the mat that you want. 
  • Cheap yoga matt (to act as the structure within the mat) 
  • Thread to match the colour of your fabric

A good idea would be to choose a material that is water or stain-resistant, especially if you are placing it under a coffee table.

Now that you have everything that you need, it is time to get started on your project. Click here for all of the steps.

DIY Reversible Pot Holders

Pot holders are a great accessory for any dinner set. This is especially true if you have some scrap material lying around that needs to be put to use. Not only will they protect your dinner table or kitchen cabinets, but these pot holders are also 2-sided. That means that you can match 2 different dinner sets with only one pot holder.

Ready to start decorating your kitchen or your dinner table? Here’s everything you will need:

  • Sewing machine 
  • Heat resistant fabric
  • Cotton batting to help hold structure
  • Cotton fabric to match your dinner set 
  • Bias tape 
  • Thread to match each side of your chosen design

Now that you are ready to start improving your dinner set, click here to follow the steps. 

DIY Cirrus Duvet

Another activity that we cling to when staying indoors, is lying on our beds. Paid this with a great book or a movie and you might as well be in heaven. The only thing that could make this scenario better is a cirrus duvet. 

Cloud-like, there is almost nothing more comfortable. Here is everything you need to get started:

  • 2 king-size flat sheets in the colour of your choosing 
  • Queen size flat sheet for the reverse side
  • Thread to match your design
  • Double-needle 
  • Lace, buttons or any other sorts of closure
