Home Dec Projects
Look around your home and be inspired to make it your own. Even a beginning sewist will see plenty of things to create.
Garage sale finds and basement treasures are a great place to start. Many items can be recycled into more interesting things than you can buy new. A quick coat of paint and a fun, fresh new fabric and you are on your way. It feels great to save a few dollars and make it yourself!
For example: This was a one day project - after finding the pieces at garage sales.
