I have started sewing these towels and never want to go back to my old ones. Not only are they functional but also super pretty in your kitchen.

This is a simple project you can sew using your sewing machine at home, only straight stitches are needed for this project.

Gathering with your serger

If you love all things peplum and ruffles then changes are that you are doing tons of gathering in your sewing endeavours.

While there are many different ways to achieve a beautifully spcaced ruffle or gather, the serger method is my absolute favorite one.

In the video instructions we have used the Baby Lock Victory serger and Madeira Serger threads but any serger machine can do this!

It's fast, it's easy and it looks amazing.

Enclosing a Neckband on Your Knit Garment

Looking for unique ways to elevate your handmade garments?

I love the added detail that enclosing the neckband on your knit top gives.

It’s a fun way to add extra design elements, use a little scrap of precious fabric or highlight a special selvedge edge.

It is also a quick way for the wearer to easily tell which is the back. Using this technique also encourages the seam allowance to lie flat without topstitching the whole neckband.
