It is always advisable to wear protective eyewear when sewing, especially when using appliqué, free-motion, and embellishment techniques.

Notes: All fabrics should be 100% Cotton and prewashed. Lining may also be a coordinate to your strata or yoke print. Strata fabrics should be solids, balis, hand dyes, marbles, etc…these all work well. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Decorative threads to use are rayon and metallic. Polyester decorative threads also work well. Care should be taken when ironing.
