Mid Century Modern Foot Stool DIY

Mid Century Modern Foot Stool DIYA Mid Century Modern Foot Stool DIY using geometric fabric that is a good Saturday afternoon project.  This was the first piece I have ever made that was fitted and round.  Normally if I make something round I make it my way and how ever it turns out is how it was meant to be.  But this piece required good measurements and accurate sewing.  I was surprised at how well it turned out for my first piece and all it took was a learning to baste first and take my time.  I have never machine basted before and now I don’t know why I have never done it before.  It seriously made everything easier and when I did make  mistake, because we all know I made a few, it was so much easier to rip out.

Materials for a Foot Stool DIY:

  • Tuffet 
  • 3/4 yard Robert Kaufman Canvas 
  • 3/4 yard Robert Kaufman Geo Pop fabric
  • Rope Trim
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • Sewing Machine and thread
  • Serger (optional)
  • Zipper Foot
  • Seam Ripper (optional)
  • staple gun
  • staples
  • scissors
  • flat head screwdriver or  staple lifter (optional)
  • Power Drill with Phillips Head bit
  • Wood disk and wood feet ( Home Depot)
  • Paint brush and DecoArt PaintMid Century Modern Foot Stool DIY

Instructions for Foot Stool DIY:

  1. Place the cushion in the centre of the fabric, and trace the circle 2 inches bigger than needed.  I surged the edge but you do not have to.Mid Century Modern Foot Stool DIY
  2. Cut your rope trim to size and add an extra two inches.
    Better to have more than enough than to cut it too close. Line up its raw edge along the raw edge of the top panel. You will be attaching it to the right side of the fabric. Start sewing about 2” down from the start of the piping.
  3. Pin the two together and set your machine to baste stitch. At this point, you are just basting, so there is no need to get too close to the cord.
  4. Cut fabric for side panel and surge one edge.  Again, you do not have to surge the edge but I do.
  5. Line up the side panel with the edge of the top panel. Start sewing with a basting stitch about 2” down from the top. You will be sewing a 5/8” seam.  This will hide the basting stitches from earlier.

  6. When you’ve sewn around the perimeter, remove the pieces from the machine and line up the edges for a custom fit. Do this by marking a straight line on both ends of the panel where they should be sewn together and pin them in place. (Make a test fit as shown in the image below.) Mid Century Modern Foot Stool DIY
  7. The zipper foot allows you to get close to the piping-use a regular stitch to sew the pieces together.
  8. Trim off the excess seam allowance, iron open, and sew along the piped edge to ensure that it’s completely closed
  9. Place the fabric over the cushion. Pull taught but do not distort the shape. Place the wood base on top of the cushion. Pull fabric up over edge firmly but not so much you pull the pattern out of shape. Place three staples approximately two inches from outside edge.
  10. Place three more staples on the opposite side of the first three then do the same on the left side and the right side
  11. Pull firmly on the unstapled sections, smoothing as you go and staple in place after one section is stapled and smooth.
  12. Repeat step 11 until all the fabric is smooth and stapled into place. If you make any errors remove the stapled area and rework.
  13. Cut off excess fabric up to about 1/2′ from staples
  14. Add the brackets for the feet and then add the feet.   You can add the brackets before or after you staple the fabric.  Your choice.
  15. I painted my feet the day before I started the project and coated it with polyurethane to protect it from chipping.  How you finish the feet is your choice.

  4. Now it’s time to make the heart “charm.” To make the stuffed heart, trace a heart shape on the wrong side of the fabric. Double the fabric over and cut two shapes out at once. Sew the shapes together with the sewing machine and thread leaving a 1/2″ open for stuffing. Lightly stuff the heart with Polyfil and sew the heart shape closed. fabric scraps 5
  5.  Use a needle and thread to sew a 5″ piece of black cord to the center. Use the fabric glue to adhere an embellishment to the center “front” of the heart.  fabric scraps 6
  6. Fuse a 5″ square of muslin to the Stick fusible webbing. Cut out into 2″ squares.  Use the alphabet stamps and ink to stamp sentiments to each square.  Use the iron and pressing surface to adhere the square to the bookmark. This will also heat set the ink. Now it’s time to assemble the bookmark. First, sew the edges of the stamped square to the bookmark to secure.  Sandwich the Smooth the fabric strip and wool felt. Sew the edges together.  Then, sew the end of the cord to the bookmark as shown with several stitches.  fabric scraps 7

Materials and tools for pinwheel pillow:

Basic Supplies for the pinwheel pillow:

  • scissors, fabric marking pen, pencil, sewing needle, iron and pressing surface

Instructions for pinwheel pillow:

Use rotary cutter and mat to cut two 17”x13” rectangles from wool felt.

For templates, use circle cutter to cut circles measuring 3”, 2-1/2”, 1-1/2”, and 1” from cardstock scraps.

Follow manufacturer’s instructions to apply fusible webbing onto fabric scraps using iron and pressing surface. (Note: You will need approximately 45 circles of each size to cover front of pillow.) Trace circles onto fused-fabric scraps using fabric marking pen; cut out. Trace three 3” circles onto wool felt scraps; cut out.

Layer fused-fabric circles on wool felt and fabric circles; fuse together using iron. Pressing cloth or wax paper can be used between the layers.

For best variety, vary sizes of circles layered together. Use sewing machine and black thread to freeform sew around edges of circles.Thread sewing needle with black thread. Insert needle through back of circle and through button hole; pull through to front of circle to attach button on center of layered circle. With needle still on circle, place circle on wool felt rectangle; insert needle through other button hole and pull thread through wool felt rectangle to attach circle on pillow front.

Fabric Flower Baby Bib Tutorial

baby bib fabric flower rosette
DIY Fabric flower rosette tutorial. A great stash buster for a shabby chic baby look.

My friends are having babies left and right.  While looking for easy handmade baby gift ideas I came across a Sizzix die cut for a baby bib.  I have the Sizzix Pro and it will fit the large die.  This was the solution to my shower gift dilemma.  With this die I could make everyone bibs and any future babies will get bibs too.  Win/win.  The first baby on my list is a girl and her mom is kind of frilly so I decide to add a flower to her bib. This is one of my go to flowers and it works great with fabric scraps.  For a while I put a rosette on everything. Normally I make the flowers and embellish them with gems in the center but since this is for a baby and I thought it would be safer to leave small bits off.   Be ready to see several versions of this bib.  My creative juices were flowing. 

Materials for Fabric Flower Baby Bib:

  • Sewing Machine and basic sewing supplies
  • Iron and ironing board
  • Smooth Fusible Fleece  (received as a sample and I LOVE it.)
  • 2 fat quarters or fabric scraps to make a patchwork piece 9×12 for each side.
  • coordinating thread
  • bias tape or twill tape 1.25 yard
  • Dritz Babyville plastic snaps and snap setting tool

Instructions for baby bib:striped baby bib

  1. Cut fabric to fit the size of the die cut approximately 9×12. Fabric face up, iron the fabric to the textured side of the fusible fleece following manufactures directions. smooth fleece for baby bib
  2. Run the fused piece through the die cut machine following manufacturers directions.
  3. fabric baby bib coral and greyDie cut the back side of the bib.  Make sure you place the fabric the correct side up to match with your  front.  I cut one backwards. IMG_2870
  4. Pin the pieces together.  Use as many pins as you need to keep the pieces aligned. how to layer pieces for baby bib
  5. I sewed the pieces together before I added my binding so that it would not slip or shift as I went along.  I did not do this on the next bib and my results were not as nice.  twill tape as binding
  6. Add the binding or twill tape to the edge of the bib and sew on.  In the future I will use larger tape.  This was too small and took forever to go around because I went so slow to avoid it shifting.how to set a plastic snap.
  7. Add a plastic snap.  The tool makes the job so easy. Use the awl that comes with the tool to poke a hole for the pieces.  Place the pieces though the hole and squeeze.  It really was that simple. dritz plastic snap tool

To make the fabric flower:

  1. Cut or tear one inch strips of fabric.  If you are using scraps like I was you will need several strips as long as possible.  You are aiming for 24 inches of fabric. fabric strips
  2. Starting at one end of strip make a knot, twist tightly and begin to roll into spiral shape.
  3. Use thread to secure edges every 2”-3”. I used a contrasting thread so you could see it.  Try to use a coordinating color.IMG_2889
  4.  If you are using scraps, adhere one end of the fabric to other end to make larger fabric flower.  Adding stitches as you go along.fabric rosette tutorial
  5. Adhere the fabric flower to bib with several stitches. Use coordinating thread and try not to go through both layers.IMG_2893

Color Sort Busy Activity for Children

color sort busy activity 365 days of crafts

Color Sort Busy Activity for Children in rainbow colors and in neutrals can both be made in 15 minutes or less.  I came up with the popsicle shape, cut, sewed, colored and labeled all 10 colors in 32 minutes from concept, gathering materials, to completion.  You can do yours in 15 minutes and make half or take a half hour and make them all.  The materials list is very short.   The activity will keep little ones busy and it can help them learn too.  I colored the bottom of the craft sticks solid.  This is to help them learn to match their colors and I also wrote the name on it for when they are ready to learn sounds and letters.  The popsicle sticks can also be used for creative play.

OlyFun can be purchased in the craft isle at most big box craft stores in sheets or craft packs.  It is also available via bolt in the fabric section.  I really like this material because it dos not fray so you can treat it like paper or fabric.

Country Chic Valentine decor

Country Chic Valentine decor – My littlest child thinks we need to have decorations for every holiday and I tend to agree.  I love to create and decorate and make our house a home.  She is old enough to help and definitely has a great sense of what she likes.  She posses a huge amount of creativity for a preschooler and it makes my heart swell with joy.  The option to color the hearts red or pink was given to her.  She declined because hearts come in all sorts of colors and sizes and she wanted to make the hearts pretty with all the “stuffs”.   This artistic mom could not have been happier with that statement.  We made these with a the box of Christmas craft supplies that were never quite incorporated back into my craft stash and were sitting in the corner of my room patiently waiting to be sorted and put away.  The bits of twine, ribbons, buttons and fabric were all left over from a craft night before Christmas.  Even the straws were left over from another festive occasion.  I keep a large box of Poly-Fil on hand so we did not have to purchase anything to make this decorative trio.   Making the decorations from leftovers made me happy and we created something that can be displayed for many more Valentine’s Days to come.
muslin heart trio - country chic valentine

Supplies for Country Chic Valentine decor:

  • Duck Cloth or Canvas
  • Pencil
  • Fabric scissors and utility scissors
  • Sewing machine and coordinating thread
  • Embroidery floss and embroidery needle
  • Iron on letters and Iron
  • Paper Straws
  • Bamboo Skewers
  • Fairfield Processing – Polyfil fiberfill
  • Adtech Pro100 Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Paint brush

  • DecoArt Metallic Luster –  Gold Rush, Iced Espresso
  • DecoArt Dazzling Metallics – Gold
  • Washi Tape
  • Misc. buttons and trim in neutral colors
  • shredded brown paper
  • rocks 

Country Chic Valentine decor Instructions:

  1. Gingerly paint the terra cotta pots with a coat of white paint.  If you go too heavy on the paint you can remove excess paint while it is damp using a cloth or use sandpaper after the paint is dry.  Allow the paint to dry then wrap the washi tape around the lip of the pot.  Use your finger or a cloth wrapped around your finger to apply the metallic paint around the edges and along the rim of the terra cotta pot.  Start with the Gold Rush then layer on the Iced Espresso.
  2. Trim jute and ribbons to size and hot glue on bits of old doilies, rickrack or other natural colored embellishments.
  3. Draw one large and two small hearts on canvas and then cut out the shapes with scissors.  Water down Gold paint and drizzle over fabric randomly.  Let the paint dry.  Add hand embroidery details around the hearts.  Place right sides together and sew the pieces together leaving a small opening at the bottom for the Poly-Fil and to place over the straws.  Iron on the sentiments of your choice to cotton ribbon remnants.  Hand sew or hot glue on the decorative embellishments.
  4. In the bottom of the terra cotta pots, place a few small rocks and generously add hot glue into the bottom to adhere the rocks..  While the glue is still warm insert a bamboo skewer into the glue.  Then place the straw over the skewer and hold in place until the glue cools.  The skewers provide stability.  Add the Poly-Fil to the hearts.  Add a small dot of glue onto the top of the straws and place the hearts on the straws through the opening at the bottom.  Let the glue cool and close off the opening with embroidery floss applied in a decorative fashion.   Add in brown shredded paper.  I run leftover cardstock through the home office paper shredder.

Tip: Hot glue a few rocks in the bottom of terra cotta pots to weight them down and to keep objects centered.  Use an old credit cards to smooth the washi tape ripples.

Easy sew sling tutorial

Easy sew totes are perfect for a kid on the go.  My kids are a pretty active  and as a family we are always on the on the go.  Being on the go with kids means that someone is always hungry or thirsty.  One way I have tried to teach the kids independence and individual responsibility is to have them prepare their own snacks and drinks.  I made each kid a sling that will hold a refillable water bottle and a small snack and maybe a piece of gum or two.  The kids like them and it is one less task I have to manage.  They know that at the 5 minute warning their bags need to be pack or they go without.  It might sound strict but I hear so much less complaining than before.

The material I use is  Oly*Fun from Fairfield.

Directions to make the easy sew tote:

Cut a piece of the Oly-Fun material to 9×5.

Sewing stool update


Sewing stool makeover collage

The sewing stool update is part of the Fab Furniture Flipping Contest.  I purchased the piece last year and could not decide what I wanted to do with it.  When I heard the theme for this months contest “Geometric” I knew exactly what I wanted to incorporate.  I have been working on “half squares”  in non quilting speak they are called triangles.  They were going to be the geometric aspect.  I requested a quart of black glaze and white milk paint.  I was so pleased with how smooth the white milk paint went on that I decide to save the glaze for another project.  If you want to learn how to make the half squares that is a different post that I have to write up.  I have not perfected them YET!  so stay tuned for tips.sewing stool before
