Raise your hand if you have a fabric stash.

You know.

The one that falls out of the cabinet when you open the door.

Stacks and stacks of fabrics just waiting for their day in the sun.

Guess what?

The sun is shining.

Project time is HERE.

I have 12 fabric craft projects. Some you sew. Some you don’t.

But all of them are amazing.


1. Pom Pom Pillow from Tassels

Hello pom pom pillow.

I’m looking at you.

This is the EASIEST NO-SEW pillow in Texas.

Fall is just around the corner.

This simple no-sew fabric project is made from recycled sweaters.

First you felt the sweater.

And then?

You turn it into a pumpkin like this.

3. DIY Fabric pumpkins

A long time ago in a land far away I had a fabric line.

Guess what I did with it?

I made fabric pumpkins.

4. Stamped Recipe Towel

This is such a fun no-sew fabric idea.

And they make the perfect hostess gift.

You can stamp a simple flour towel with location coordinates.

5. No-Sew Dropcloth Hydrangea Pillow

I painted the stripes on this pillow cover.

And then?

I’ve had this pillow at my house for years and it’s still just as cute as the day it showed up.

All you need is a pillow cover and fabric scraps.

9. DIY Dropcloth Curtains

Dropcloth makes the best curtains.

I have instructions for no-sew and sew curtain options.

It’s such an affordable option for larger windows.

    Karianne, I was wondering where you found those farmhouse bistro chairs? I had not noticed them before. I need to replace my wooden chairs on my farmhouse table and those would be perfect. Thank you so much for all you do for us.

    Missing your 'What I bought Wednesday' this week. I introduced a friend to it when she was visiting me last week. You brought us much JOY! Our new special saying now is "Let's GO!" and we both think of you.

    Love the recipe towel idea. I must have missed that one when you first posted it. It would be a great housewarming gift if you added in the baked good and perhaps a cutting board!

    Hi Karianne: Is there an episode of "What I Bought Wednesday for 8/11? If so can you please send the link? It's so helpful when they're linked right on your blog page, hard to find on Youtube, they aren't in order and not all there according to the numbers. Thanks so much, Jan
