Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

A felted thrift store find turned into a beautiful rose embellished bag:

The sweater was purchased from a thrift store and was a mens X-large that is felted (washed in hot and dried on hot twice until it shrunk to a large child’s size sweater).
You will know it's felted when you can no longer see the stitches and the sweater will not unravel when cut.

The roses and stems were all made from the scraps and hand sewn on. Nothing went to waste. You can also use this technique to embellish t-shirts, dresses, skirts, etc.

Learn how to make one of these bags
