Karen Betts writes: I just finished sewing the coolest project! I saw the pattern, “Classmate” by Atkinson Designs, at my local BERNINA store, Nancy’s Calico Patch in Newport News, VA. This was the first time I’d sewn with clear vinyl – and it was amazingly fun and easy!!
I made these great zippered pouches using a pattern from Atkinson Designs called “Bridget’s Bagettes.” They will make great Christmas gifts for the grandkids with personalized little gifts inside. I can even coordinate the fabric with the gift!
Sometimes it is rewarding to just take your time and work on a project that can’t be done in a day, such as this leather jacket. Thank goodness BERNINA has special presser feet that are great for sewing on leather!
Join us on January 19th for a FREE Just Sew It! webinar on Textile Textures – exploring easy ways to create texture on fabric using speciality threads and presser feet, changing plain fabric from flat to fabulous!
If I could only choose 3 accessory feet to work with, you know, if I was stuck on a desert island with my sewing machine and only a handful of accessories to go with it, these are the 3 that I just couldn’t live without!
