Sew Home / Custom Sheets & A Giveaway

My dear friend Erin Scholosser of Schlosser Designs wrote a book! Yay! And, it’s awesome. It figures out all of those home decor projects that you may think are cool but, can’t quite figure out how to do. Roman shades? Check. Bed Skirt? Check. Shower Curtain? Check. Light Shade? Check. The book includes over 30 different projects and many project have several variations so there’s a project for everyone!

Custom Sheets? Yes, please! Erin mentioned that she had a project with customized sheets and I knew that was the project for me for this blog tour.

Of course I wanted to use my fabric line Grafic with it. I did change a few things. But, the instructions are so clear and well written that small changes were easy to make. One, I didn’t want my band being quite as wide so I made it a bit smaller. Second, since Grafic is ALL directional fabric and I wanted it to be in the proper orientation I did piece my band. Erin smartly suggest that you make it from one piece of fabric so that you don’t have seams. But, I sacrificed a seam to use my fabric. 🙂 And, I’m in love! Now, I need to make pillow cases and shams too!

The best thing is that you can customize sheets in JUST three seams (Well, four if you are a rebel like me). The construction is brilliant. And, in just an hour or so you can have something custom and personalized for your home.

  1. WOW the sheet idea sounds neat! But first I have to do something for our bedroom windows!
    Thanks for sharing! MERRY CHRISTMAS!

  2. What fun ideas. I have fabric for a shower curtain and fabric for custom sheets….the book would help me in tackling these projects!

  3. Oh goodness; that looks so clever in your own fabric! I love it! I would really like to make my own sheets. I know there is some gorgeous linen for sale and this may just be the right project for it! Thanks for the chance to win and for providing some great inspiration!

  4. Wow! Love your sheets and pillow! I’d love to make a roman shade for my bedroom.

    Thanks for a chance to win.

  5. So many things…but first on my list are cafe curtains for the kitchen, to front a cupboard that doesn’t have doors–does that make sense? I think some cute little curtains would be just the thing, but I keep putting off making them.

  6. I have had fabric sitting for years now to be made into Roman shades, so this book would be the kick in the pants I need! Plus custom sheets just sound awesome!

  7. Of all the things you mentioned that are in that book, custom sheets are probably the only thing I haven’t made. After making them, I’d donate this book to our MQG library. Thanks for the chance to win!

  8. I’m Always earmarking fabric for napkins and placemats, maybe getting this book would be just the push I need!? But then again, I’m loving these custom sheets!!!!!

  9. The spider web pillow cover made from selvages would make a great project for me! I have a pile of selvages that need to be used up and I love that design!
