An Inspirational Fourth of July

We'll be getting patriotic this week at the Highland Sewing center as Joan holds her "No Pole Required" Class this Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday---plenty of class times available for you to sign up for this popular class.

And there is still plenty of time to sew casserole covers, flags, and picnic d├ęcor for the holiday. So here's just a sampling of  inspiration and ideas from around the net to make your fourth sparkle:

Need a casserole carrier? We found this tutorial here.

Decorations are great and the Aesthetic Nest Blog has a great Fourth of July post covering napkin rings, table runners, and garlands to sew and hang for your fourth picnic.

And for a whimsical set of placemats how about these from A Spoonful of Sugar Designs made with the pockets off of old blue jeans for cutlery holders? Be sure to have some denim needles on hand for this project and make sure your machine is set for heavy fabric! 

We also have a limited supply of these Old Glory designs in the Highland store---what a great hostess gift this little angel would make for that fourth of July picnic host!
