Quilted Stocking Workshop 1

These stockings are very addicting!   As you finish one, you’ll already be      planning the next one, and who couldn’t use another stocking??

I think one in every room to coordinate with the decor would  add just the right touch of Holiday Spirit throughout the house!!  Stripes of fabulouse prints ( I love the new black/white that just arrived) stitching in contrasting threads and stitches-gold & silver, too!  And a touch of Santa fur to top off the toe!  December 7th, 6-9pm, supply list includes embellishments of your choice(bits of ribbons, buttons, trims, etc).  Can’t fit it in??  Schedule a private lesson and make one, or two, or three….

Nice pants

IMG_0684Meet Brian and Justin, star students of Stitch Cleveland.  They just finished their first apparel sewing project.  Completing a muslin first, with all the detailing, then moving on to their fabrics, thest pants are stitched so meticulously–well, you could almost check them with a magnifying glass!!  But, I’d check with the guys first.  

These pants were made from a Burda pattern, detailing includes a back welt pocket, waistband with belt loops.  Each seam is securely back-stitched, (they did this very well),  the hems are carefully blind-stitched by hand (every single stitch!)and the pant has a flattering tapered fit.  After completing the construction, they also learned additional tailoring methods to make them fit just right.  Don’t they look great??
