This week the show has a simple and straightforward theme - Get comfortable! Traveling for work, going on vacation, or just traveling from point A to point B, comfort makes the journey more pleasant. Comfortable clothes and great travel accessories are presented throughout this entire series.
This week's show begins with Donna Babylon demonstrating a cute and super useful lingerie bag. Her Ooh-la-la appliqué letters fit with the fabric theme she selected and will surely bring a smile each time you tuck away your lingerie! Be prepared to jot down some notes while you watch this segment. Donna shares lots of helpful tips while making this zippered bag. You'll want to repeat these techniques on future projects.
Next Donna squeezes another item into this segment, a neck pillow made from super soft fabric. I purchased a similar pillow a long time ago and practically go into panic mode if I neglect to pack it for a trip. It's great for home use too, providing extra neck support while reading in bed. Cuddle® fabric from Shannon Fabrics is an ideal choice for a pillow like this. It's easy to sew when you follow Donna's tips. She has provided complete instructions and a free pattern for the neck pillow. CLICK HERE to download a copy.
Take a look at the big bold appliqué letter on the pillow! What a great way to identify your own personal pillow or customize it for a special gift. Visit Donna at www.sayitwithapplique.com to see more fusible letter kits and a variety of projects to use them on.
In the second half of the show Angela shows you how to make a lovely lacy top.
Using her versatile Evelyn pattern, watch as she guides you from prepping the pattern to finishing the neck, sewing the seams, and hemming this flattering top. Novelty fabrics like this can be challenging to construct but Angela demystifies the process.
The end result is something you can wear as a swimsuit cover-up or as a blouse with a tank top underneath. It's perfect for summery days at home or away!
In the last few minutes of the show you'll learn how to dial your way to a smooth serger stitch! Learn more about the controls you see on the serger and how small adjustments can make a big difference in the end result.
Personally, I can't imagine sewing without a serger. I could sing its praises all day long! Not just for garments but also for crafting, quilting, home decor, and most anything that involves a piece of fabric. In fact during the month of April I've posted a few miscellaneous serger tips on the letsgosew Facebook page. You can CLICK HERE to take a look.
