This week you can watch another brand new program in the fall lineup of Sewing With Nancy. It’s the second program of the 3-part series, Sew Simple with Rectangles & Squares. Learn to sew modern projects that take one or maybe two hours—no longer—to create.
The Hold-it Sacks are my first sew-simple projects for this episode. Prop up your cell phone or electronic tablet in the cradle area of a Hold-it Sack. Made from laminated fabric, they’re ideal to use throughout your home or office. The unique finished shapes appear as if they were made from complicated patterns, but not these gadget holders. They’re all made from rectangular shapes.
Mini Fabric Sacks
Toss them in a game or use them to hold down pattern pieces, these mini sacks can be both fun and functional. You can easily make three mini sacks in an hour or less.
Don’t settle for tan or black bins for your shelf, customize fabric bins to accent your home décor by selecting coordinating fabrics. Make from, you guessed it, rectangle and square fabric pieces. The sewing is enjoyable and the end result is as fresh in appearance as it is useful. Grommets serve as both handles and a focal point.
What’s good for the shelf is good for the wall! With a little tweaking of the instructions, fabric bins turn into wall pockets that provide organization and style to any home or work office.
