‘Resource Center’ aka Fabric Stash Additions
- Of COURSE…cut on the bias for great 1) bindings – or any width 2) Create matching fabric chenille strips as I taught on the new PBS sewing show: It’s Sew Easy making use of this awesome Chenille Brush which PERFECTLY ruffs up the bias edges. Read HERE for all the details of my technique as taught on the It’s Sew Easy – Techniques page there to support/reinforce what was aired on PBS! If you don’t get this show in your area – Call and Tell them about it! REQUEST it! P.s. If you’re a supporter of that station with your $ – they will listen to you better! 🙂
- I LOVE this brush SO much – SEW much better than your fingernail, a toothbrush, and safer than a stiff wire brush too, that I’ve made a new COMBO of my DVD for embellishments called ‘Refined Embellishments for Creative Sewing’ that INCLUDES this brush FREE with purchase of the DVD for a limited time.

- Re-Create Fabric – by cutting and/or stitching the stripes in different configurations. For example, on the brown/aqua piece – I could create a ‘fabric’ of just the narrow aqua and cream stripes for an area on a jacket. I could cut out one of the narrow aqua stripes and piece it down the center of one of the wide brown stripes – couching yarn along each of the raw edges. ….
- Use stripes themselves for embellishment…by cutting a stripe out and applique it on top of the fabric itself at an angle…
