Project

Nubby Grey and Black

What was your source for this sewing project? Improvisational What are you most proud of? This is my second project using this beautiful grey and black upholstery fabric. The first project was a laptop tote. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Some upholstery fabrics are quite sturdy and require a stronger sewing machine needle. I use 16/100, and adjust length of stitch (longer). Experiment on a scrap piece of fabric to get the right stitch length. Two minutes time spent adjusting the stitch length will give you effortless sewing and confidence!

Q&A with Shoestring

4bird2 asked:
Hello Shoestring, I love all the polymer buttons and beads that you make. Do you have a place where you sell them? I looked on Etsy, overwhelming, too many. I'm interested in buying, do you sell?
Shoestring answered:
I'm so flattered you like my polymer beads, and buttons. Some clients buy my buttons in pairs for mittens they make and sell. What a great idea, eh? Leave me a message on my website and I'll give you my email address. I'd love to correspond with you, and give you some of my handmade items. http://www.1893victorianfarmhouse.blogspot.com
