“There are a lot of different ways to make fabric flowers and I have tried many of them. This one is my favorite. To make these flowers you first need to make fabric sandwiches. Any scrap fabric will do but you need fabric bond to put in between the front and back piece of fabric....that makes your sandwich!  Then you can cut out your flower pieces and construct your flower,  Evelyn”

Every sewing machine comes with a few standard presser feet that will suffice for nearly all sewing projects. But there are so many other feet that allow for more creativity than what those few standard feet will allow. Korinne explained and demonstrated several presser feet that are specially made for embellishment sewing.

Sep 15: Kraft-Tex Paper-Fabric demonstration with Jann

 

Jann Silverton will be presenting projects made with Kraft-Tex. 

Per Jann, "Kraft-Tex is a fun, fairly new paper-fabric that cuts and sews like cloth!

In addition to a presentation, I hope we’ll have time to sew some

simple woven coasters.

You’ll need some Kraft-Tex (an 8.5”x11” sample pack would be good),

and a #70 needle (#80 will work).

And Kraft-Tex is absorbent, not waterproof so you can back the

coasters with clear iron-on vinyl or adhere a cork backing with Steam-A-

Seam 2… or any other non-absorbent material you have on hand.

To get Kraft-Tex shipped quickly probably use Amazon.

Etsy, Joann.com and C&T Publishing also sell it online, but probably do

not ship quickly.

Michael’s and Hobby Lobby do not sell Kraft-Tex.

I highly recommend buying the dyed pre-washed in general. But for

coasters it doesn’t matter."
