Quilt Addicts Anonymous founder, Stephanie Soebbing is the host of SIY Sew it Yourself video tutorials. SIY is a new video series created by Jaftex, the owners of FreeSpirit, Henry Glass, Blank and Studio E. It is aimed at helping new sewers learn the skills they need to take on more challenging projects, and give longtime quilters fun projects that can be created quickly.
The second pattern and tutorial released in the series is the eco friendly Grocery Totes! These are reusable shopping bags that fold up super small and compact so you can slip them in your bag when you go out to the store. There are so many fun skills you can learn as you make them.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
- How to fussy cut
- How to work with digital templates
- How to sew smooth curves
- How to create darts
- How to top stitch
- How to box stitch the bottom of the bag
- How to turn skinny ties
- How to insert a lining
