You can watch It's Sew Easy show 801 online from June 26 to July 3.
In part one Angela gives a short lesson on taking a basic pattern and turning it into what I like to call a “topper.” In my book a topper is the type of garment that serves dual purpose, adding a little bit of warmth and a whole lot of style to an otherwise ordinary outfit. You’ll see that you can you can make one with anything from sheer fabric to sweater knits.
The next part of the show features Kathy McMakin putting together a baby bonnet with nothing less than tender loving care. Heirloom sewing projects often involve lots of TLC, and include everything from simple bibs and bonnets to delicate dresses that can take weeks or months to complete. If you love the art of heirloom sewing you’ll enjoy every minute of this segment.
Make a point to visit the It’s Sew Easy and download the instructions provided for this segment. Kathy put together a detailed guide sheet that will help you master the art of heirloom sewing.
Have you ever struggled with decorative stitching on thin, soft, or even stretchy fabrics? Watching the show reminded me of a couple favorite specialty stabilizers. Click on the image on the left to download my tip sheet for using liquid, “disappearing” stabilizers.
