LOVE BeeBee's BLOCK for MAY!!!
It's on it's way to you today! (Kind of hard to let this one go!)
Since we've had some new people join recently,
I thought I'd do a quick refresher on:
The Key elements in MAKING FABRIC is:
A small STITCH LENGTH and a HOT iron!
2 or under on your stitch length works best.
Why? So when you sew your MADE FABRIC and cut it later,
your seams will STAY TOGETHER when you tug on them.
Tight stitch length a must!
** A LARGE stitch length, will pull apart when you cut your MADE FABRIC...
You don't want this to happen. Messy Messy!
TRIM your seam allowances evenly...
and PRESS each time to add a piece with a nice HOT IRON.
Your back of the fabric will look as fabulous as the front and it will lay flat!
LOOK at your MADE FABRIC.
You find GLORIOUS Discoveries...
For instance... Making BeeBee's May Block today, I made a bunch of MADE FABRIC.
Pink, orange, lime green Red and blue...
Weird combo! But LOOK how ZINGY that red is!
How scrumptious that GREEN is!
Then the Magical thing happens...
Idea's start to POP!
And then you have this:
Which may lead to THIS...
And well... you see my point... right?
Thank you BeeBee for starting my creative juices today with your
Beautiful BLOCK for MAY!!
