I’m soooo excited for next week because Dana of MADE and I have had a little project a’cooking for a while now! It’s called Don’t Fear the Fabric! This series will take TWO tricky/fun/unique fabrics and give you the complete run-down of how to, why to and what to use it for! We are focusing on oilcloth and leather this time…in such pretty colors and prints!
Beginning December 3rd (one week from today) we’ll have projects on each of our blogs including giveaways, tutorials and free patterns! Dana is the oilcloth queen and she’ll be sharing some bright and colorful projects to make with the slick fabric! I’ll be sharing leather projects throughout the series! Leather, suede, pleather and everything in between! A few of them make perfect holiday gifts and all of them were really fun for me to dream up!
So each day you’ll get one oilcloth project on MADE and one leather project here at See Kate Sew!
Through this series, we hope to demystify these two fabrics. Oilcloth and leather are both such great materials to use in sewing but maybe a little daunting at first. So, together with our Babylock sewing machines, we want to break down the fear barrier and share that love of these two useful materials with you! I hope you love it!
There are leather scraps alllll over my sewing room! And a few cute finished projects. Here is a little peek:
So if you want to know what else became of all these fabrics and scraps…come back next week!
And we’ll make sure you DON’T FEAR THE FABRIC!
Oooh! That’s exciting! I’m one of those persons who fear these fabrics and would love to tackle that fear! I live in the Middle East and don’t know if these fabrics are available around here! But still can’t wait for this series!
Can’t wait for the new series to begin. Both oil cloth and leather are two frightening fabrics for me to sew on and work with. Have a granddaughter that needs a rain coat and of course some leather trim on her wool coat.
Looking forward to this series…..always on the lookout for tips and suggestions on sewing with a variety of fabrics!! Thank you for hosting it!!
fabulous! really looking forward to learning more about sewing with leather!
I really like the ‘smashed’ fabric concept…looks like a lot of fun…could be used with other things as well…fun post.
