Baby Onesie Trim & Applique

Posted on July 28, 2017 at 4:57pm 0 Comments

Check out my final trimmed and sewn ‘Onesie’ for granddaughter Kenzie’s Aug. 7 birthday!  It’s been ‘in process’ for some time since we live 7 hours away.  Of course you’ll get to see it ‘all together’ on the beautiful model, but we’ll both just have to wait.

Today, I finished the Onesie – and I must say, I think it’s pretty darned cute – but it will be even cuter on our baby!…

How to Stitch Knit Hem

Today, I’m sharing my techniques for hemming a knit garment.  There are many ways to ‘skin the cat’, in this case the ‘cat’ being a knit hem.  What I CAN tell you is that the ‘way’ instructed in most patterns will NOT work!  Simply turning up a knit hem and stitching WILL yield a wobbly mess.  Give this technique a try and I think you might just LOVE it!

That means put a knit fusible interfacing the…

Know the Designer?

Sewing Guild friend, Linda brought this delightful T-Shirt Throw that she made with T’s belonging to her son.  Though I’d love to give appropriate credit to the original designer of the idea, Linda did not know – “other than on…

Will try it! Do I need to adjust my tension a certain way? I seem to be having excessive bobbin issues if the foot doesn't meet the feeders

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.
