Welcome to the Fiskars Craft Sew-a-long!
So glad you could join me in this sew-a-long where I show you step by step on a weekly basis on how to make something. You are sewing along with me!
This post is the first and lists the supplies you need. You have one week to complete the gathering of supplies. This post however will be up for the duration that this blog exists so you have plenty of time to do this if you don't have time this time around.
If you have ANY questions please ask. I am here to help you.
There is also a prize to be chosen for one participant! So comment in the below thread to say you are participating with me.
You will be making this handbag/tote bag with me....
Supplies you need will be:
Canvas (or apolstery fabric, or some denium fabric) 38" x 28" (97cm x 72cm) - this is found in fabric stores or artist stores on the roll.
White sewing thread & sewing machine and machine needles 100/6 (Ones that sew denium or thick fabric) and Pins. And an Iron.
Sew in velcro (some places call it hook and loop) - do NOT get stick in stuff it messes up the needle when sewing. Believe me I have tried this.
Fiskars Titanium Rotary cutter and Fiskars quilt cutting mat (found at spotlight stores)
Fiskars microtip scissors (found at spotlight stores) - cuts loose threads nicely and cuts shapes out of fabric well.
Optional will be a handy 12 in 1 sewing tool. Has an unpicker, thread cutter, tape measure and more in it. very handy when sewing.
needle and DMC thread for decorating - Fabric paint (i like using jacquard fabric paints but there are plenty on the market) and paint brush/water container to rince and wash brushes. Pencil or pen for marking fabric.
optional: Various fabric flowers (you can find these in second hand stores or cheepy stores - $1 and 99c or under $10 stores - for next to nothing and pull them apart for alot of crafts)
Well see you next week sometime. I'll try to post on the same day.....
We will start cutting out the pieces we need.
See you then!
