1 Panel – Multiple Sewing Projects!

By using one “No Place Like Home” Fabric Panel, you can sew a Hanging Door Decoration and Garden Flag with our free step-by-step instructions! These uplifting banners celebrate the special kind of love and happiness that can only be felt at home. The vibrant colors and inspiring artwork are perfect for decorating your home and garden.  

To create the door greeter decoration and garden flags featured in this tutorial (approximately 12 ½” x 21” each), you will need one “No Place Like Home” Fabric Panel, three 13 ½” by 22” backing fabric pieces, 2 yds of lightweight fusible interfacing, cotton thread, and your standard sewing supplies.

 

Supplies: You will need one “No Place Like Home” Fabric Panel, three 13 ½” by 22” backing fabric pieces, 2 yds of lightweight fusible interfacing, cotton thread, and your standard sewing supplies.

Preparation:  All seam allowances are a 1/2” unless otherwise noted. Press frequently. Cut out each panel leaving a 1/2” seam allowance on all sides. Apply lightweight fusible interfacing to the back of panel pieces and backing fabric pieces.

Step 1: Measure 2” down from the top of your panel on both sides. Mark a small ‘X’.  Turn fabric under ½” and sew from the top to the ‘X’ using a ¼” seam allowance. This will be the channel used to hang your project. Repeat on backing fabric.

Step 2: Place the panel and backing fabric wrong sides together. Sew together along the top edge.

Step 3: Sew remaining edges together starting at the left ‘X’ and stopping 2” below the right ‘X’. This extra 2” allows you to turn your project right sides out more easily.

Step 4:  Turn project right sides out. Topstitch ¼” along all sides, skipping the channel openings. Topstitch across the width of your project to finish the 1 1/2” channel.

Step 5: Display your new project using a Wall Quilt Holder (with dowel) or garden flag holder. Repeat steps 1-4 on remaining panel pieces.

I’m confused. Step 2 says to place the front panel and backing WRONG sides together, sew, and turn them right sides out, but the graphic clearly shows the pieces with their RIGHT sides together, wrong sides facing out. I think the graphic is correct but your text description is not.

My bobbin case won’t stay in the part of the machine that it and the bobbin should be in. I have a Euro Pro X, model 390H.

Hi! Are you using the same bobbin you’ve always used? If you’re not doing anything different, you likely need a new bobbin case. I don’t have any immediate information on your machine, but we may be able to call around. Would you mind please calling us at 888-824-1192 or emailing us your question and a picture of your bobbin case to info@sewingpartsonline.com?

I thought I placed an order with you more than a month ago and haven’t heard anything yet. I probably did something wrong. I had ordered a drive belt for an old White super zig zag machine along with a new foot and some needles. Can you check to see what went wrong? Thanks

Hi, Jim! It’s my pleasure – do you have an order number I can reference?

In step 1, am I sewing across the top (folded under 1/2″ and using 1/4′ seam allowance) or down each side but only for 2″? Very confused

I’m so sorry that part is confusing. Those two-inch sections create the channel from which you will hang your door greeter. Essentially, you’re hemming just those 2-inch sections so that the raw edge isn’t exposed when you go to hang your finished project. I hope that makes sense. If not, please send us an email to info@sewingpartsonline.com and I will send you a close up of my door greeter.
