2020-03-30 00:47:18 custom gift for housewarming

First we had the Cute Crib Sheet Tutorial which was a really easy way to make a crib sheet using your sewing machine. Then we had the Crib Sheet Tutorial: Part 2, a more finished end product for gift-giving, featuring encased elastic all the way around the edge. Now here is the Serger Crib Sheet. This version is the simplest of them all with the help of a serger. It’;s not the prettiest but it’;s definitely the fastest way to turn a few yards of lovely fabric into a crib sheet for your babe.Start a piece of fabric 42/44″; x 66″;. I used Aneela Hoeysofa pillow cases, Walk In The Woods which is on sale right now! If you are gifting the sheet and would prefer to not pre-wash the fabric, keep the length at 68″; instead. Quinn’;s awesome boots are c/o Boggs.

1. From each corner, cut away an 8″; square.

linen sheets

2. Keep the selvage (existing edge) on the two long sides, It’;s a ready-made finished edge! On the two short ends, finish on the serger.

3. Fold the corner so that the? 8″; sides of the corner line up with right-side-facing.

4. Serge the 8″; sides together.

5. Stitch about 1/2 inch then pull the thread “;tail”; around from behind and across the stitching path to secure the thread ends from unraveling.

6. Repeat on all 4 corners.

You have the basic shape of the sheet. Now we just need to add elastic.

7. Cut 4 –; 10″; lengths of 1/4″; elastic and pin the center of each to the seam of a corner.

8. Move over to the sewing machine to sew on the elastic with a basic stretch stitch. A zig-zag will also work. With the elastic stretched to the max, sew it to the very edge of the corner, starting and ending with a few back stitches.

Repeat on all 4 corners. It’;s not the prettiest finish but it’;s so easy and you’;ll never see it!Pop it on your favorite crib or toddler bed and tuck in a sweet baby!

Hi, my name is Kari Carr from New Leaf Stitches and I’m here today to tell you that I’m…partial to partial seams. As a designer and teacher I often hear people say they are intimidated by new techniques such as this. My wish is that after this project, you’ll have the confidence to tackle any project, whether the partial seam is used with a square, rectangle or hexagon. Learn how to make this variation on a Quartered Star block that includes partial seams.

Here’s another in our series of Made to Create pillows, this one by Amanda Whitlatch. Don’t you just love her steampunk design? In addition to two assigned accessories –?the BERNINA CrystalWork Tool and Circular Embroidery Attachment #83 –?Amanda also used the PaintWork and CutWork Tools.

We’re totally smitten with thehappy shade of Spice you’re seeing all over the pages of our Fall 2015 catalog. It feels warm, fresh, unexpected, and it coordinates beautifully with any neutrals you may already have in your home (like grays, beiges, blacks, and even navy!).
