Now, onto today’s giveaway and sneak peak at Sew it All TV season 7. I was lucky enough to shoot an episode with the always delightful Ellen March. We used a fabric painting technique that involved crayons, sandpaper and heat. You’ll have to catch the episode to get all the details or visit sewitalltv.com after March 1, 2014 to read about this exciting technique.
Today I am giving away some of my favorite sewing tools and items that came in handy when sewing the coasters I made for the show. There were several layers of fabric, and one was vinyl that I didn’t want to pierce with pins. While it is possible to just pin in the seam allowance, it was exceptionally helpful to use the Getta Grip Clips to hold all the layers together while I stitched. Additionally, the Sewline Aqua Eraser is a fantastic tool to use when erasing marks from fabric. Discovering a way to safely remove pencil marks keeps me worry free when prepping a project.
These awesome tools could help you make the pillow I created for season 6. I am so proud to be in two episodes and love both the projects I have made. Check out the pillow I made for episode 612: Deco-Stitched Decor. You’ll find full instructions to make your own pillow.
