    A major reason to fully line your curtains: lined drapes block out way more light than their unlined counterparts, meaning your room stays nice and dark — and you (or your kids!) get plenty of zzzs. But that’s not all: lining also protects the main fabric of your curtains from fading in the sunshine, and adds an extra touch of elegance that makes the whole curtain look more polished.

    Even for an advanced sewer, sewing a hoodie is kind of intimidating. It's not overly complicated, but there are many steps, many pieces and, of course, there's all the hardware.

    We dare you to watch He Sewed She Sewed — our hit series featuring Mimi G and Norris Dánta Ford — and not be inspired to make your own clothes. The two newlyweds (that's right, they just got married!) clearly know how to vibe with one another, and that camaraderie has resulted in some seriously genius designs.

    Unless you're a circus contortionist, you may need to unzip, unbutton, untie or otherwise open a fitted garment in order to wriggle in and out of it. And while closures have an important function, they're also a fun way to give a garment a little personality. Here's a short guide to the five most commonly used garment closures, and what each one can do for you.

    As you dig around in your stash of quilting fabric, do you ever stop and think: Hmm, could I make a dress out of this? Or do you ever eye a quilting cotton at the store and wonder: Wouldn't that look cute as a shirt? Makes total sense — but wait, can you even make clothes out of quilting fabrics?

    If you're looking for a quick and gratifying sewing project, knitwear is an excellent place to start. After all, knit fabrics are pretty easy to fit and usually don't need fiddly closures. With knit fabrics there's not a lot standing between you and a garment that's so comfortable you may never want to take it off.

    Sure, you've been gifting dad a tie since you were, oh, four. While it may feel a little been-there-done-that, making that tie yourself — in a fabric that pops and totally channels his personality — changes the game completely. And if you're really feeling the love, you can go the extra mile and make two or three!
