Tracing and cutting your pattern and Blind hemming

May 13, 2013

We stay so busy in the sewing room, that I barely have time to post! Here are some pictures of one of the recent classes at Hobby Lobby in Richmond. DSC_0002Before we even begin tracing, we have to cut the pattern pieces apart. Then we press them! We use Dritz spray adhesive to stick the patterns to the fabric. NO, we don’t pin to the fabric unless it’s not a washable fabric, anyway. DSC_0003 DSC_0005

Tracing paper doesn’t leave a strong image behind.  DSC_0012 DSC_0013We increased the size of some patterns DSC_0019 And the job was nearly done by the end of this night of class. Some folks had more homework than others. That’s always the case. DSC_0021Sometimes tracing paper and chalk aren’t enough and a good fabric marker is also a good idea.

I still have openings in the Wednesday evening sewing series beginning this Wed night, 5/15, at the Hobby Lobby in Chesterfield. Cost is $150 and we meet from 6-8 pm, each week for 5 consecutive weeks.
