About This Show

Three hip young female hosts show a homeowner and you how to completely transform your homes using nothing but fabric (and a touch of paint when necessary). DIY's "seam team" is made up of an interior designer Cat Wei, upholsterer Kelly Keener and seamstress April Eden. Instead of emptying each room and starting from scratch, the Material Girls work with the elements that are already in the room. Using only fabric, scissors, staples, needles, thread and help from the homeowners, they will turn the room into a redecorated masterpiece. And we're not just talking about curtains and bedspreads here. The Material Girls will use their skills to create floor coverings, padded headboards, slipcovers, lampshades, room dividers, and more. You name it, they'll make it out of fabric on Material Girls.
