All About Denim

Reading in the Vogue patterns Magazine October/November 2013 all about Denim - as there seems to be so much 'out there in our sewing realm' lately about sewing  your own jeans.   Though I'm not personally inspired to spend my time doing this - my friend/assistant Carol always amazes me with her wonderfully-fitting, various color personally created jeans!  I admire it all - just no time in my 'to do' list to spend time on it.  However, the entire textile aspect of it all certainly interests…See More

Long Genesis Too Jacket on Sweatshirt Base

one!  Here is my newest jacket – from my very basic popular Genesis Too pattern design where the lower ribbing is used for the neckline finish.  The extra long length is a result of using polar fleece to create yokes in the front and the back, thereby yielding more sweatshirt ‘fabric’ from the 2XL sweatshirt for the length.  My technique for this can be seen and heard at t…See More

Sometimes...it's Better to BUY clothing & Pressing Hints

Posted on January 22, 2014 at 10:00am 0 Comments

K – so DD gave me a Groupon for $50 for Christmas (for which she paid just $25) at Coldwater Creek.  So yesterday I ventured out there before making my final packing decisions for my upcoming trip to the Northwest to present at 2 stores.  Searching through the store, I eyed this nice ponte knit pant in one of my SWAP colors:  Teal.  They fit just pretty great actually, so since the deal was $79.99 marked down to $49.99 and then 40% off that made these pants come to just $29.94!  At $12.99…

Put Pressure Foot PRESSURE to Work!

Posted on January 11, 2014 at 4:01pm 0 Comments

As I stitch, and continue to learn how to really utilize the awesome features of this Brother Quattro 3, a feature I'm falling in love with - and have never had before - is presser foot PRESSURE. Hitting the notebook icon in the lower left corner of the screen, it is normally 3 - which when attaching Lastin Clear Elastic as a stay in a shoulder seam as shown in the lower piece in the photo - really puts too much pressure on it,…

Adorned Sweatshirt Jacket - Bobbin Work and Shelltucking

Posted on December 11, 2013 at 10:48am 0 Comments

On this grey jacket, I did less embellishment (FAR less) than on the Chili Red Adorned Jacket. This jacket features creative use of sewing machine capabilities like Bobbin Work and creating a Shell-tucked edge. This jacket took approximately 8-10 hours to execute. I used the Brother Quattro 4 machine - on which…

Londa, you seem to know a bunch about sewing, and I need expert advice! I'm trying to see a comforter and the problem comes in when attaching the thick braided cording. I can't get it close enough to just show the cord on the right side. I have pictures of it on my page. Can you help me??

Hi

Have just watched the You Tube video you did on trying Texture Magic as I have been researching it to do an article on it in the Bags Channel.  I went and looked on your website to see if there were any examples of you using it for collars etc but just found the product itself.  I am posting the article this Friday and would love to add pictures if you have any.

Not exactly given the reins over. My daughter thought she would like to try and create a new Sew Whats New and did so with my blessing. Everything is her work and ideas. I visit to see what's new.

Hi Londa, it's Mary from the "old" Sew Whats New. Your picture is great, and a second wedding gown too. What an undertaking. I remember the lovely job you did on the first one.
