If any of my long-time local students are reading this, you may remember a similar project I demonstrated eons ago. I still have "my own towel in a tote" sample where I embroidered the words Splish Splash, time for a swim on the outer pocket.
As always, Emily provides good instructions for her show projects. CLICK HERE to find her file for this segment.
If you own one of the Brother ScanNCut digital cutting machines you could print the pattern halves, tape them together, scan, and then cut them all out on the ScanNCut mat. You’ll see how easy it is on the show. Rebecca always has lots of tips. I love her trick for fusing two pieces of fabric together to give it more body. I’ve done that multiple times myself.
Speaking of pouches, if you missed my August Brother Free design blog post, you can CLICK HERE and view or download instructions for yet another type of zippered pouch. This one sports a golf theme but you could easily change out the design and fabric to make something else that suits your style.
I don't know about you, but when I experience cold shoulders the rest of me gets throughly chilled. That's why I'm such a fan of wraps. I often wear a Polar Fleece wrap over my coat for an extra layer of cozy comfort. When cooler weather arrives, I promise to take a photo to show you. My favorite (easy to make) fleece wrap was featured on a previous It's Sew Easy TV show. You can watch this fleece wrap segment HERE on my YouTube channel.
If you've been following Angela on the trench coat journey you are well on your way to finishing the coat. If you're in the process of making one for yourself or already have done so, I’d love to hear about it in the comments. Send me some photos via firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll post it in the grand finale blog post for the ISE1800 series!
