Nancy Zieman and Guest Mary Mulari Sew Gifs-Make Memories on Sewing With Nancy

Shop outside the big box stores and make your own gifts from new or upcycled fabrics. In the Sewing With Nancy series, Sew Gifts–Make Memories, you’ll learn how to sew gifts that will be appreciated by kids and adults –  and the projects are enjoyable to make. Mary Mulari is Nancy Zieman’s guest for this favorite series—Mary always amazes us with her clever approach to sewing.

In Sew Gifts–Make Memories Part One, Nancy and Mary start with Mary’s December Countdown Calendar. Mark the days of December by moving vintage or contemporary buttons from the strip to a dot on the tree. The pockets at the bottom of the calendar can be used for letters to Santa or for small notes promoting acts of kindness for others.

Next in Sew Gifts–Make Memories Part One, Nancy and Mary show how to sew a Two-Pocket Shoe Bag. Carrying shoes to the gym, school, travel, and work is an everyday event. Why not make these clever bags just for that purpose? Choose new fabric, or recycle a shirt and tie. Either way, this is a useful gift to make and offers many opportunities for personalization.

Mary’s third gift idea is a Noodle Lounger! Using mesh fabric and grosgrain ribbon, create a lounge-style seat that fits over a swimming noodle. Make one for yourself and another for a friend, and then share lazy afternoons seated and relaxed in the water—making more memories. Tune in and watch Sew Gifts–Make Memories, and learn Mary’s convenient way to fold and store your lounger. How to Sew a Noodle Lounger as seen on Sewing With Nancy

Next up in Sew Gifts–Make Memories Part One, Mary shows how to make Seat Belt Wrappers. Add comfort to children’s car seats with plush wraps that pad the straps near the neck. A little bit of stitching, small strips of hook and loop tape, a touch of ribbon and lightweight quilt batting are all you’ll need.

Then, watch as we turn one beach towel into two hooded bath towels for babies or toddlers. This practical, quick-to-sew gift easily wraps around little ones with ease—it’s sure to be a welcomed gift and a wonderful surprise.

Mary’s sixth gift idea is a Girlfriend’s Shopping Purse. Celebrate your friendship by making a purse for your girlfriend or sister. These bags are perfectly sized for a day of shopping, lunch, and travel. All the essentials—phone, keys, credit cards, cash, and tissues—fit in this compact and lightweight bag.

    Currently I am working on several quilts that MUST be done soon. Other than that, I have a table runner for my sister in progress. If I’d get off my lazy butt and get busy I’d get a lot more done… As soon as i saw the book it interested me because I love making gifts for friends and relatives. Thanks so much for the chance to win.

    I had lots of 1.5 inch wide strips leftover after taking a quilting class so I used them to make a log cabin table runner for my daughter’s coffee bar. I think Mary Mulari’s little shopping purse would be a great project for young 4-Hers learning to sew.

  • Janet
