personalized teacher signs NEW! Video Sewing Tutorial Series customized gifts for mom

Updated: 2020-04-27 01:17Font Size: LMS

Today I’;m excited to share with you something that I’;ve been working on for a long time! ?A video sewing tutorial series featuring my Retro Travel Bag! It’;s the next best thing to me coming to?your home to help you while you sew the pattern. Keep reading to find out a bit more about the project.

Several years ago I got the idea to make a Retro inspired travel bag. Ihad seen some cute Pan Am bags in a store and thought they would be great to use as a jumping off point for a bag pattern. I made the bag and posted it on the Riley Blake website and it totally took off! I had no idea it would do so well. In the years since that first bag tutorial, I’;ve gone through and completely re-thought how to construct the bag (all while keeping its initial charm). I changed the construction enough that I actually took down the tutorial to avoid confusion for anyone who was making the pattern.

Last year Riley Blake approached me about teaching an online sewing class and asked if I had any thoughts as to what would make a good project for a video series. I immediately thought of the travel bag. It’;s an intermediate sewing patternand I understand how it can be intimidating to someone who’;s somewhat new to sewing. I mean the bag has LOTS of piping and TWO zippers *gasp*! The video tutorial format seemed perfect for this bag. That way I could walk you through step by step each part of making the bag.

In the class I share:

-LOADS of sewing tips and tricks for working with piping, zipperspersonalized teacher signs, and even laminate fabrics.

-How to make your own piping.

-How to put in an inset zipper

-Design suggestions to help you pick out fabric for your own bag.

-How to attach3 different types of handles for the bag; fabric, leather and pre-made bamboo.

-How to work with interfacing. (I also explain why I like work with each type of interfacing)

-Working with bias tape.

As you can see from the list above, I really tried to think of EVERYTHING you’;d want to know while you make your bag.

I’;m really excited to announce?that the class is live now, on ?Riley Blake’;s new tutorial channel Imagine!

UPDATE!!! Imagine with Riley Blake is being transitioned to YouTube. You can watch the Riley Blake YouTube page for the videos from this bag to be posted. I will update as soon as they are up on YouTube.

You can also find online classes from some of your favorite people on topics from quilting to clothing construction.

There isa kit available too if you’;d like to make a travel bag that is exactly like the one in the video.

The bag shown is made using my Wonderland Two fabric line, to find out more about the line CLICK HERE.–; The mini quilts in the photos above are “;coming soon”; …; just keep an eye out for them.

Here are a few other photos of the Retro Travel bag to give you a good idea of how it looks stitched up in different fabrics:

Who said that sewing with knits is scary?

Now that we are well into October, are you already feeling overwhelmed with the amount of craftiness arriving home every evening? Aubrey & Owen create at least one project, if not more, every single day. Some of their projects are super cute or they are super proud of the day’s gluing. Either way, our home quickly becomes an overwhelming mess of artwork. We needed a plan to contain the art– and still let the kids proudly show it off. Are you feeling the crush of art everyday, too? Let’s make you a super easy artwork hanger, too!

Your taste for interiors is who you are, your touch is what mark you make and texture is what helps many of us expressively feel what you feel. Being creative by nature I am always intrigued not only by images that are very visual and connective to new ideas and inspiration, but also to textures and natural surface pattern’s that can be discovered in objects we come across day to day . Recently I found my creative curiosity had led me to a blog article written by the Roving reporter of My friend’s house titled Textures You May Have Missed In the article the anonymous roving reporter curiously expressed the odd characteristic of an old chum who as a way to describe an awkward situation holds a palm up to the air strokes the other hand and whispers the word “Texture”. Now moving on from the whole waving of arms and feeling socially awkward as it was put, where the real interest lies is in the true meaning behind the article to uncover and rediscover our own admiration for textures that can simply go unnoticed.
