Apron Sew Along

Apron Sew Along

An apron is such a fun accessory to wear in the kitchen, at work, while dyeing fabrics, gardening, you name it!  I thought it would be so fun to sew an apron and each day have guests on the live show showing how to embellish with embroidery, quilting, applique, and more. 

 

I will be using Molly Madison’s Apron Pattern, but feel free to use any apron pattern you might have on hand.  Molly is a friend of mine and I just love the variations on her pattern as you see above.

Here is the schedule of live shows and I will include links to the live shows each morning:

It has been so fun taking over the Brother Sews Facebook and YouTube channel during this stay at home mandate!  I always like to find the positive and this has been the best, being able to hang out with you all virtually.  Many have asked where to find the replay’s, so I will be sure to post them here on my blog at the end of each day. 

So going back, we had an entire week of making pillow cases, embroiderying ideas, BES 4 Lettering tutorial, and more!  Here are all the replays:

 

Now that was fun!  I hope you are inspired to dig into your stash and make a few pillow cases 🙂  Next week the theme is spa and pampering, which we all need a little of right now.

Let me know if there is a specific lesson you might like in the upcoming live shows. 

Cheers,

DIY: Refashion Jeans with Trim

DIY: Refashion Jeans with Trim

Refashion Jeans with Trim 

You might have noticed some of the fashions of the late 60’s and 70’s making a comeback on the store shelves, from floral fabrics to embellished jeans. How about adding crocheted ribbon trim along the outside leg!  This is so easy!!!

Supplies:

  • Jeans
  • Measuring tape
  • Pins
  • Ribbon or trim (check that the trim is washable)

PREPPING

  1. Measure the outside of the jean leg from the bottom edge of the waistband to the hem.

2. Add 6 inches to the outside leg measurement and cut 2 pieces of trim that exact length.

3. Starting at the edge of the waistband, center the trim with the outside leg seam. Fold under the raw edge of the trim about ½” and pin.

4. Continue to pin the trim along the outside leg seam. Be sure to look for metal rivets or other hardware! Here I have a rive and I will make sure to mark this spot as to not break the sewing machine needle.

5. Pin the ribbon/ trim all the way to the hemline. If you plan on folding up the jeans, measure 4 inches below the hemline and cut the trim.  If you are not going to fold up the jean hem, measure 2 inches and cut off any excess ribbon.

6. Turn the jeans inside out. Center the ribbon on the seam allowance, fold under the raw edge ½” and pin in place.

7. Follow these steps on both outside leg seams.

 

SEWING

Depending on the style and size of the jeans, it can be challenging sewing all the way down to the narrow hemline.  To make is easier we are going to utilize the sewing sideways feature!

8. Set up the machine for sewing a straight stitch and move the needle all the way to the far-right position. Slide the jeans under the foot starting at the waistline. To read the full blog post, head over to my post as a Brother Expert Consultant on the Brother Stitching Social.
