Harem pants (or Pirate Pants)
Carrier Bag Holder
and Hosting a Halloween Party
Some of these have a fair bit of sewing involved, others have less but here is our totally Sewing Free Cushion Cover. Perfect for those new to crafting, and something you don't need a well stocked sewing room for. This can be done sitting on the floor watching television, or on the kitchen table. This project exploits an interesting property of Fleece. It does not fray. Thus we can cut a fringe of strips into the fleece without fear of it unraveling. Some fun furs have this property as well however the wrong side of fun fur would be on display and is unattractive.
You will need:
a cushion to cover (or a pillow, or a pillow sewn in half)
Cushions pads suitable for this project can now be found in your local Fabric8 Shop
This is a quick, cheap and easy way of making a cushion to match a room, and of pulling together different colours in a room. You could make these as a gift for a sports fans using the teams colours. This is also a fantastic project to introduce textile crafts to the kids if they are stuck at home during the holidays. Being able to make something for their room in colours they like (for example, to match a football team) can give children a real sense of achievement
