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 3rd and shows the bias binding prep and sewing. You have one week to complete this step. 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 add any tips and hints or tell us how you are progressing.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS FIRST.
You will be making this handbag/tote bag with me....
use fabric paint to paint your design on the bag.
paint hightlights on the leaves and add dots.... and leave to dry for 24 hours. (this is according to the Jacquard fabric paint guidelines - if you are using a different brand of fabric paint follow instructions on packet)
Glue Fabric flowers together... with fabric glue (or you can hand sew together. Which ever method you are comfortable with.)
You can use Fray Stoppa if you wish to stop fraying fabric but this does howeve washout when fabric is washed.
I put rain dots in the middle of my flowers to finish them off but you can use anything you have at hand.... brads/rhinestones etc ..... But if you are going to use a sticker based product like rain dots you will have to use fabric glue to adhere them to the flowers or they will eventually flick off.
Now let the glue dry. after that fill your bag and use it with pride!!!
Thank you so much for following this sew-a-long! Hope you have had as much fun as I have.
And I do hope your bag gives you many months of use.
You have one more week to finish your bag. The 7th March is the due date.
Email us your pictures of the finished projects and we will put you in the draw for a prize!
