    “How do you handle sewing stretch/slinky/textured fabrics?”.

    It's not a straightforward answer, so Janelle Santner of Seams Come True decided she would do her best to walk you through her favorite techniques and tips when working with tricky fabrics! She will demonstrate these with her current make, a rainbow-striped 2-piece outfit made out of stretchy, metallic Bodre fabric.

    Bodre is a lightweight fabric with irregular pleats that drapes beautifully but tends to slip around when being cut and sewn. When she saw this fabric, she immediately thought of all the gorgeous flowers at Biltmore House in Asheville, NC, and knew she wanted to make an outfit to wear there on her next visit!

    Hola! It’s Fran from Cotton and Joy back with the fourth and final pattern of the holiday pillows series! If you missed the first three, you can find them here, here, and here


    I’ve loved sharing these quick and fun projects with you all over the last year! The fourth and last pillow in this series is a Patriotic inspired scrappy pillow. The romantic in me can’t help but love Valentine’s and adding little touches of Valentine’s inspired decor to my home so it doesn’t look so sad after all the Christmas decorations come down. And it’s perfect to use up some of those scraps we all have in our sewing rooms!


    Download the PDF pattern here!




    For quilting I decided to do my go-to quilting - straight line quilting! I used the walking foot on my Janome 9450 and quilted lines one inch apart. I marked my quilting lines with my trust hera marker and then got to quilting


    For this whole series, I have been loving the look of binding on pillow covers. For this one, I used one of red for the binding to complete the red, white, and blue look.





    One of the things I love about this classic Sawtooth star design is how easily it can be brought into other seasons with a change in fabrics! Below is a mockup of the same design, with different colors - isn’t it so fun?


    I hope you enjoyed this project and don’t forget to come back for more projects!


    Fran, xo

    Do you ever feel there is a pressure to have something new? To come up with something different? Well Meradith Daniel feels the same way! Sometimes, when she is thinking of projects to share, it's easy to get too caught up in the novel, and forget that spicing up the everyday is really a stress free, and easy approach to exercising creativity and adding beauty to the world one stitch at a time. 

    Follow along on the Everyday Applique project she created by following the links below.

    This next incredible project comes to us courtesy of  Duy (@cafededuy on Instagram) and he is  here to help you recognize your Yuzuru Hanyu dreams. In case you haven’t heard of him, Yuzuru Hanyu is the ice skating prince of Japan and two time Olympic gold medalist. He is most famous for his grace on the ice and his immaculate outfits. 

    One of his famous outfits is the blue ombré shirt he wore while skating to Chopin’s Ballade No. 1 in Korea. Today, we’re going to recreate that shirt, but somewhat more tangible for us than a professional ice skating shirt.
