"C" is for Corduroy Sewing Projects

Sew: corduroy sewing projects


Fine wale corduroy is a favorite fabric of mine and today I'm sharing a few sewing projects you can make using corduroy.

Save those worn out corduroy pants because you can repurpose them into a useful pouch.


Brown corduroy with an appliqued monogram, metal zipper and flannel lining make for a very masculine pouch that any man would appreciate.


Here I combined corduroy panels with drop cloth, another favorite fabric of mine, and added a cross-stitched monogram.

How to:
Step 1: Print the letters using monogram KK font.  Pin paper to corduroy panel and cross-stitch directly over paper.

Step 2: Carefully remove the paper.

Step 3: Prepare all pouch supplies.  (For a similar size pouch click here.)

Step 4: Press under raw edge of corduroy panels.

Step 5: Pin in place on drop cloth main body piece of pouch and top stitch.



This pouch was for a new baby.


Use bright turquoise corduroy (a favorite shirt of mine from high school), contrasting yellow metal zipper, bright pink single letter monogram and pink/white striped canvas lining.

For this larger monogram I used graph paper, sketched out the crosses and pinned it to the corduroy:
