In this video -------------------- Have you ever seen a quilt that seemed impossible to piece? If so, it might have been a Bargello quilt. This classic quilt is known for the way the fabric colors ebb and flow, creating beautiful movement. Hi, I'm Angela Walters, and I'm going to show that making a Bargello quilt block isn't nearly as hard as it looks. It just takes a little creative "unsewing" - and I'll show you exactly how to do it! To get started on your bargello quilt block, pick out some of your favorite fabrics that vary in color. I've narrowed my selection down to 10 gorgeous colors, but you could use more or less. To save time use precut 2 1/2" strips. Lay them out in the order you prefer. There is no one perfect way to place them, try experimenting with some different arrangements. For my bargello block, I am placing these beautiful batiks from lightest to darkest. Now that you have the perfect layout, stitch each strip together along the long edge until you have one big strip set. I sew them 2 by 2 as it's easier to manage the fabric that way. Press all the seams to the side, being careful not to distort the edges. Now make a tube by pinning and sewing fabric 1 and fabric 10 together, right side to right side. It probably goes against every quilting technique that you may have learned, but it will make sense in just a moment. Move the tube to your cutting mat and crosscut the tube into strips. First, straighten up the left edge and then begin cutting the strips. You can cut them all the same size, or you can vary the widths to give the quilt an even more stunning look, which is what I am going to do. I am going to cut the first strip an inch wide and add 1/2" to every cut. For straight stripes ensure that the top and bottom seam are parallel while you are cutting Once you cut the strips, don't let them get out of order. This will help prevent mixing them up. In fact, you may want to label the strips so you don't forget what order they are in. I am speaking from experience! This is where the magic happens! The bargello effect happens when you remove the stitching between different fabrics. Starting with the first row, remove the stitching in the seam at the top. Open it up and lay it out flat. Do the same with row 2 by removing the stitching in the second seam. Repeat with all of the rows, changing the position of the removed stitching each time. Counting the seams will prevent you from removing the stitching from the wrong one! Remember, the number of the row is how many seams you count down. When the strips are all laid out, you can see the stunning effect. Now, all that is left to do is sew the strips together! To make sure that all the points match, carefully pin the strips together. Perfectly matching points aren't necessary, of course, but it does help the overall effect of the bargello. Removing the pins as you go, sew all the strips together using a 1/4" seam allowance until you have the finished block. I'm using my fingers to manipulate seams so that they're nested into each other. Again, I sew the strips 2 by 2 which also helps me keep them in the right order. Pay special attention to the placement of the strips. I can't tell you how many times I have accidental flipped one around on accident. Once they are all sewn together, press the seams and admire your stunning bargello block. Now that you can see how easy it is to make the bargello quilt block, just imagine all the fun possibilities you can create by adding more fabrics or combining them in different layouts.

How to sew an invisible zipper step-by-step | Sewing Tutorial with Angela Wolf

Join more than 10 million passionate makers on Craftsy, where you can access expert instruction, supplies, patterns, and endless inspiration to help you make more of what you love. In this video ------------------------------ An invisible or concealed zipper can really give your garment a professional edge. And it's easier to sew than you think! Hi, I’m Angela Wolf! Let me show you my foolproof way to sew an invisible zipper. Here I have an invisible zipper 2, two pieces of fusible interfacing and the skirt pieces. Choose a zipper that's 2 inches longer than the opening. First, stabilize the seam where the zipper is going to be inserted My fusible interfacing is cut about an inch longer than the zipper opening and is wide enough to cover the seam allowance and another half of an inch. I'm trimming one side of the interfacing with pinking shears to prevent it from showing through on the right side of the garment - that's an especially good tip for lighter weight fabric. Line up the interfacing along the top and side raw edges, and press by holding the iron for about 3 to 5 seconds, lifting and pressing. Next, prepare the zipper by pressing the zipper teeth away from the zipper tape. Make sure your iron is at a lower setting, (you don’t want to melt the zipper! ) And just quickly press, see how this fold opens? – this make it much easier to sew! Now - take a look at this handy line here on the zipper tape - that will be good guide for you to follow with the needle when you come to sew Here are both pieces of fabric - and my zipper. Start with your zipper closed, this will hopefully stop you from sewing it in backwards. Flip the zipper with the right side facing the right side of the fabric. Insert one pin to keep the zipper lined up and now unzip the zipper all the way Line up the zipper tape inside the edge of the seam allowance. You want those zipper teeth to land right on the seam. So if your pattern calls for half-inch seam allowances you would line up your zipper right here. This is an invisible zipper foot, which makes it real simple to sew. / See these grooves underneath the foot? ...they line up with the zipper teeth and glide right along that edge as your needle goes through the hole. you can also use a standard zipper foot, the difference is the foot will glide along the edge of the zipper teeth like this. Line up the standard zipper foot with the needle right next to the zipper teeth, using that handy line as your guide and stitch. This snip represents the bottom of my zipper opening, back-stitch and one side is finished. Zip up your zipper and find that snip - now with a fabric marker make a mark across from the last stitch - this will show you where to end your stitches. Well done! Take a bow! - or take a break - then start on the other side! Now turn the edge of the second piece of fabric right side toward the right side of the zipper, pin it in place, and open the zipper all the way past the last stitch. Flip the fabric, remove that pin and start pinning the tape in place Pushing the finished side of the zipper out of the way, you're now going to stitch down this side. Just put a couple pins in here Change the zipper foot to the other side, line up the needle right next to the zipper teeth, and stitch. When you get to the the mark representing the last stitch, back stitch It is very important that the stitches on each side of the zipper tape are even right here. If they're not, go back and stitch a few more stitches on the shorter side close the rest of the seam. Place a pin along the seam allowance underneath the zipper tape, push the zipper tape out of the way as much as possible. Add another pin. Back at the sewing machine line up your needle here, starting a quarter of an inch above the last stitch, just on the inside of this stitch line. Push the zipper tape out of the way, back stitch twice and stitch. Switch to a standard presser foot and starting on that last stitch, sew the rest of your seam closed So let’s take a look at our finished zipper! See how neat the seam below looks? And on the right side you can hardly see the zipper teeth, which is perfect since it’s an invisible zipper! That’s how easy it is to insert one!

In this video -------------------- Strip quilts are so fast and easy to make! They are the perfect go-to pattern when you need a cute quilt, quick. Hi, I'm Angela Walters, and I want to show you how making a quilt out of strips, from start to finish, is oh so easy. First, pick out some fun fabrics. I'm using flannel which means my quilt is going to be so cozy. Don't worry about finding fabrics that match perfectly. The more variety, the better! You can choose as little as 4 prints or as many as 13! Decide which fabric is your favorite, this will be the most prominent color in the quilt. Cut it into four 3" strips. Cut a total of eighteen 3" strips from the coordinating prints. Pair a strip of your favorite fabric and three strips of co-ordinating fabric and / pin and sew with right sides together to make a strip unit. Don't forget to press the seams to the side. It'll make cutting the blocks much easier. Rotate the strip unit, straighten the left edge, and carefully subcut into three 10 1/2" blocks. Repeat with the rest of the fabric, making more strip units and more blocks just as you did with the first set of fabrics Once you have the blocks, this is where the design comes to life! Lay out the blocks in a row, rotating every other block. Rotating the blocks creates a zig zag effect. It really gives a basic block a fun look! Now you can pin and sew the blocks together in rows And then do the same to sew the rows together. Don't sweat matching up every seam - close enough is good enough! Press it and just like that you have a fun, fast and easy strip quilt top! But it isn't a quilt until it's quilted. Don't let the thought of machine quilting deter you from finishing your quilt. I promise it's easier than it looks. Here I am going to use a smaller quilt made of 4 blocks. But all the steps are the same, no matter the size of your quilt. Pick out a fabric for the backing of your quilt and cut it so that it is at least 2" bigger than your quilt top on all sides. Place a piece of batting, roughly the same size on top of the backing. Again, make sure that it lays flat. A wrinkle in the batting is no fun to deal with while quilting, trust me. Place the quilt top on top of the batting. Using safety pins, baste the layers together. This helps ensure that none of the layers move while machine quilting. For this quilt top we're going to quilt straight lines. A walking foot, if you have one, is your best bet for this type of quilting. Starting from a corner, quilt a line diagonally to the opposite point. See how the walking foot feeds all the layers through evenly and helps prevent tucks? Continue quilting onto the next block, going from corner to corner until you reach the edge of the quilt. Repeat in the next row of blocks and continue until all the blocks are quilted with the same parallel, diagonal line. I like a lot quilting in my quilts, so I like to repeat the diagonal lines in the opposite direction. Keep quilting until your happy with how it looks. Once that's finished, all you have to do is trim it and add the binding.

Paper piecing made simple | Quilting Tutorial with Angela Walters

Join more than 10 million passionate makers on Craftsy, where you can access expert instruction, supplies, patterns, and endless inspiration to help you make more of what you love. In this video -------------------- What do you do if you want to make intricate quilt blocks with points that match every time? Try paper piecing, of course! Hi, I'm Angela Walters. I'm going to show you how paper piecing can help guarantee perfection when it comes to complex, and not-so-complex, quilt blocks. Let's start with a few tips for getting started. First, you need paper! For this project, I'm using thin foundation paper. Any type of paper will work, but a thinner paper will be easier to rip out later. You'll also need to print out your paper-pieced quilt pattern. You'll need a copy for each block or portion of the block, depending on the pattern. It will have numbers depicting the order the fabrics should be sewn on. The lines are your sewing lines. You will be sewing directly onto the paper. Place fabric 1 so that the wrong side of the fabric touches the underside of the pattern. The fabric should overlap the section marked as #1 by about an inch. Holding the paper and the fabric up to a light will help ensure that it is placed correctly. Pin the fabric to the paper to keep it from moving. Pick a scrap of fabric for section number 2. Make sure that it covers the section and extends past the sewing lines. Place fabric for section 2 on top of fabric 1 so that the right sides are touching, re-pin on the paper side, holding both pieces in place. This will keep them from shifting during sewing. Remember shorten the stitch length on your sewing machine, 1.0 will make it easier to rip out the paper later on. With the paper on top, sew carefully along the line between section 1 and 2, beginning and ending a few stitches beyond the line. On your cutting area, carefully fold the paper back along the line you just stitched Using a rotary cutter and ruler, trim the fabric 1/4" from the paper This is an important step, I left this out the first time I paper pieced and it was a mess! Flip the block over so that the fabric is on top. Using a dry, hot iron press the second fabric into place. Rotate the block again so that the numbers are showing. Crease the line between #2 and #3. Trim the excess fabric, adding the ¼" seam allowance. Take your third fabric and align the raw edge with this cut edge, making sure it overlaps into the next section. Sew on the line between the 2nd and 3rd section Repeat the previous step of folding the paper back and trimming the fabric away 1/4" from the seam. Press as before. Continue sewing the fabrics onto the block in the order shown in the pattern. When all the sections are filled in, it's time to press and trim the block. I like to spray the block with starch and iron it with a dry, hot iron. This helps prevent distortion when removing the paper. If you decide to use starch, be sure to let the block dry before trimming Once dry, it's time to trim the block - including the 1/4" seam allowance. Before you start cutting, check to see if the 1/4" seam allowance is on the pattern or not. Trust me, it's heart-breaking to piece the whole block, only to trim it incorrectly! To sew the blocks together line them up, pin and sew. Once you're sure the block will not be sewn to another unit or paper pieced block, it's time to remove the paper. This is the perfect chore to do while watching your favorite tv show. Once you're sure the block will not be sewn to another unit or paper pieced block, it's time to remove the paper. This is the perfect chore to do while watching your favorite tv show. If the paper is tough to remove, you can lightly spritz it with water. Or use a seam ripper to get the paper out of tight corners. Whether it's a simple quilt block or a more complex one, knowing how to paper piece will help ensure perfect points every time.

Join more than 10 million passionate makers on Craftsy, where you can access expert instruction, supplies, patterns, and endless inspiration to help you make more of what you love. In this video ---------------------- Making curtains is a quick way to update a room, and they are so easy to make! Hi, I'm Angela Wolf! I'm going to show you how to make these curtains with stylish grommets. Start by measuring your window. Measure from the curtain rod down to where you want the curtains to end.  Take this measurement and add 16 inches - I will show you what that is for in a minute. Next measure the width of the window. Double this measurement if you want a nice full curtain. In this case, these unlined curtains are more for decoration, so I simply used the fabric right off the bolt, in one long piece with a width of 44 inches from selvage to selvage. Trim off the selvages first.  The fabric is woven tighter in the selvage area - these would spoil the drape of your fabric - so get rid of them! Starting with the sides of the curtains, turn the fabric under 1" toward the wrong side and press.  Use a clapper if you have one to get a crisp crease. Then turn the fabric under 1 more inch and press again.  Now you are ready to stitch the fold in place. Three layers of thick home dec weight fabric is pretty thick, so I'm using a #14 denim jean needle, which will stand up to the task! Line up the needle about 1/8" in from the fold and stitch using a stitch length of 3.0. To keep things on the straight and narrow remember to use the seam allowance guide. Do the same down the other side of the curtain. Now for your curtain hem. The weight of a larger hem allowance will help your curtains hang better.   Measure and mark 3" from the bottom and mark with tailor's chalk. Turn up and press. Then turn the hem over another 3" and press again. To start stitching you'll have to get your foot over this hump of fabric. One option is to place a piece of folded fabric behind your foot to make it more level. Or, if your presser foot has a black button like this, you can use that to level it up. Stitch along the folded edge, the same way you did on the sides. OK, let's move to the top of the curtain!  Mark your pressing line with chalk, 5" from the top to leave enough room for the grommets. Turn under toward the wrong side and press. Fold the edge over another 5" and press. And stitch closely along the folded edge the same way you did the hem.  Now for the grommets!  I'm spacing out the markings for my grommets 2 and a half inches from the top and sides, with a 9 inch space between them. Use the templates that come with the grommets and trace around the circle. Do this for each grommet and then carefully cut out the holes. The grommet bottom piece of each has a raised center - place that in the hole from the right side, just like this. On the other side, position the other half of the grommet over the center. Then simply use your hand to press down and close the grommet. See how professional that looks? And that's it! Slide the curtain onto the curtain rod and you are all set!

Join more than 10 million passionate makers on Craftsy, where you can access expert instruction, supplies, patterns, and endless inspiration to help you make more of what you love. In this video ------------------------------ Want to make a cute top in an afternoon? I'll show you how easy it is! I'm using the Scout Tee pattern from Grainline Studio, but you can use any similar style t-shirt pattern. I've already cut out my pattern pieces in a woven cotton fabric. A woven fabric won't stretch out of shape when you sew. With right sides together, pin each front shoulder to the back shoulder. Then pin the front to the back at each side seam. At your machine, line up the fabric edge with the seam allowance marking for a half inch seam allowance. Insert the needle at least 1/8” away from the edge of the fabric. Back stitch once or twice, and stitch. When you get to the end of the seam don't forget to backstitch. I'm using a contrast thread so you can really see, but you'd choose a matching thread of course! Move to the side seam and stitch down the side the same way. Repeat this process on the otherside of the garment, and then finish the seam edge. I finished those frayed raw edges with an overlock stitch on the sewing machine but you could zig zag or serge the edge. Now it's time for the neckline. You can make your own matching bias tape out of your main fabric or if you want to save time, buy 1/2" double folded bias tape like I have here. Here's a tip for sewing the neckline - be careful not to stretch the bias tape over the shoulders or you could end up with puckers. But you do want to stretch it at the center front and back to prevent your neckline from gapping open. Leave about 3" free at the back of the neckline, then Iine up the first fold on the bias tape with the neckline, and pin. Stitch right in this first fold - I'm using a contrast thread but you'd use a matching color. Stitch over the shoulder area - it's very important to avoid pulling the bias tape! You want both layers to feed evenly or we will end up with puckers.   OK, we're at the curve of the neckline. Start to pull the bias tape slightly as you stitch. Once you're at the other side let it lay evenly once more. "Back around the shoulder, and we have to close the bias tape. I am not going to stitch straight across, because this can cause the back of the neckline to gap. Now, here's the neatest way I know to close bias tape - Cross the ends of the bias tape like this, pin and draw a straight line from here to here. See how neat this will look from the right side! Stitch across the diagonal line. Trim off the excess like this and then finish attaching the bias tape by stitching along the fold - take care to hold those seam allowances flat. With the help of an iron, fold the bias strip over the seam allowance, tuck under the other pressed edge and pin, making sure to cover the seam allowance and catch the back fold of the bias tape. Work your way arond the neckline, folding, pressing and pinning. You can really see how nice that seam looks at the back. Starting at the center back, stitch one more time around on the edge of the bias tape. Keep checking as you go to make sure you are stitching through both side of the bias tape. Okay, let's move on to the sleeves. This is a set-in sleeve so I need to prepare the sleeve cap before inserting it into the garment. Sew two rows of basting stitches across here. A basting stitch is just a straight stitch with a stitch length of at least 5.0. Pull the end of each of the threads to gather the sleeve head. If you have a tailor's ham like this you can use it to help steam press the sleeve to a nice rounded shape. With right side to right side and the seams lined up, match the front notches and pin the sleeve in place Match the back notches and do the same thing. This notch should line up with the shoulder seam.  See how I'm easing the sleeve cap into the armhole.   Starting at the side seam, stitch the sleeve in place - making sure you're sewing through the two layers. Then finish the seam allowances with an overlock, zigzag stitch or serger. The final step is to hem the sleeves and bottom of the top.

In this video -------------------- Want perfect points every time? I'll show you how, as we complete this playful patchwork quilt project! Hi, I'm Angela Walters, a quilt designer and an instructor on Craftsy dot com and I am going to show you how to make perfect patchwork points every time. The secret to getting perfect points starts with prep. Pay special attention to your cutting to ensure that you start with the correct size blocks. This is where the old advice, "measure twice, cut once" comes into play. Cut slowly and pay attention to the ruler, making sure that the cut stays consistent. Next, let's make some half square triangles. Cut two squares that are the same size. Place them right sides together and pin. Sew a line a 1/4" from the edge along all 4 sides. Pivot at the corners with the needle in the down position. Using a quilt ruler, cut from corner to corner twice to make 4 half square triangle blocks. Then press the blocks open and trim the corners even. See how easy that is? Use pins to hold your blocks together as you piece, it will prevent the blocks from slipping or moving out of place. Be sure to remove them as you go. When sewing the quilt blocks together, make sure that you have an accurate 1/4" seams. measuring the seam on a test block is a good way to ensure that you are accurate. You can also use a 1/4" sewing foot or a piece of tape to ensure that your seams stay consistent. Use a scrap piece of fabric as a leader before sewing your blocks, this will prevent the edge of the block from getting warped as you sew. Ironing also plays a large role in perfect piecing. Use a hot iron and press the seams ....don't iron back and forth vigorously, or you may warp the block. Be sure to press each seam before moving onto the next one. Using spray starch will help the seams lay nice and flat. Nest the pressed seams to ensure that the points line up when assembling blocks. It will guarantee matching points. There you have it, perfectly pieced points every time!

How to sew pants: Elastic waist wide-leg style | Sewing Tutorial with Angela Wolf

Join more than 10 million passionate makers on Craftsy, where you can access expert instruction, supplies, patterns, and endless inspiration to help you make more of what you love. In this video ------------------------------ Taper and Wide Leg Pant pattern from Christine Jonson Patterns These pants are super-easy because there's only one pattern piece to work with! Take a look at the grainline on the pattern piece, I've lined this up with the grainline on the fabric - the grainline is typically parallel to the selvage. This will mean the drape of your pants will look its best. Here's the pattern piece all cut out with the notches and hem markings transferred. These will help us match the pieces up later on. You can see on the pattern that this is the inseam, and there is no outside leg seam. Something to remember - if you're using a woven fabric that has no stretch like I am, choose a waist size that's large enough to get over your hips otherwise it's going to be a real struggle to pull them on! We're going to start with the inseam. With right sides of the fabric together, line up the notches and pin the front leg to the back leg. Line up the seam allowance with the 5/8” marking, back stitch and stitch all the way from the crotch to the hem. I'm using a contrasting thread, but you'd choose a matching color. Finish the seam allowances: I am going to trim the seam allowances with pinking sheers. You could use an overlock stitch, zigzag stitch, or a serger. Whatever you prefer. Look for the triple notches on the crotch seam - this is the back of the pants. Press the seam allowance in this direction. OK - one leg down - one to go! Just follow the same steps again for the second leg. Once you've done that, you'll join the two legs together at the crotch seam. Have one pant leg with the wrong side facing out in one pant leg with the right side facing out. Insert the leg with the right side facing out into this pant leg - line up both inseams and pin. You can see both of these sides are wrong sides now. Line up the notches - one notch refers to the front of the pant, place a pin and these triple notches refer to the back. Pin all the way round this crotch seam. Next, you'll stitch along this entire crotch curve. Starting at the top edge, back stitch once or twice and stitch all the way around. When you get to the inseam make sure both the seam allowances are facing the back of the pant legs. "Again, you’ll finish the seam edge just like before and then press the crotch seam to one side. / A sleeve board or a full size ironing board is perfect for this job." attach the elastic to the waist line. Start by measuring the elastic around your waistline to determine how tight you want the elastic. Cross the elastic pieces, lining up the marking and zigzag stitch back and forth. Now with fabric marker make marks on the elastic Line the elastic up along the wrong side of the fabric, matching up the center front seam with the center front marking on the elastic and the center back marking with the center back of the pants. Stretch the elastic and add a few pins - this will help to ease the elastic in evenly all the way around the waist Stitch the elastic to the fabric with a zigzag stitch of 1.4 length and 3.5 wide. As you do this, make sure to stretch the elastic to match the length of the fabric. Finish your edge and then turn under the elastic toward the wrong side of the fabric. Pin at the center back seam and the center front - and lets just add one pin to each of the side seams Line up the edge of the presser foot with the edge of the elastic and topstitch the bottom edge of the elastic to the fabric with a slightly bigger zigzag of 1.8 long and 4.5 wide. Make sure the elastic butts up to the fold and stretch the elastic to match the length of the fabric. Stitch over the first stitch just a little and backstitch - and the waist is finished. The final step is hemming your pants At the machine check to make sure your needle will just catch the folded hem allowance edge. On the right side of the fabric, topstitch the hem in place with a straight stitch of 3.5. To keep that line of stitching straight use the guidelines on your throat plate. Give the hem one more pressing and the pants are finished! You have made a great pair of pants in a couple of hours!

In this video -------------------- This is a no-bake cheesecake - it uses gelatin instead of eggs and a fridge instead of an oven! This quick and easy strawberry cheesecake is perfect in summer or when your oven is busy doing other things! And if you want the free recipe in full - just click this i in the top right corner. Here's everything you'll need for the crust... In a food processor grind up the graham crackers, then add the melted butter, nutella, brown sugar, salt and cocoa powder and blend. Press the graham cracker crust into a springform pan and refrigerate for at least ten minutes. Now here's what you'll need for the strawberry sauce topping: In a saucepan add the berries, sugar, vanilla bean and water and heat until they are soft. Puree the fruit. I like to use a hand held immersion blender for this - it's one less container to clean. In a small bowl, add cold water to the gelatin, stir and allow it to sit until it "blooms" like this, which can take up to 2 minutes. Transfer the gelatin to the hot strawberry mixture and gently stir over a low heat, just until the gelatin melts. Reserve 3/4 cup of the strawberry sauce for the top of the cheesecake. Allow all the sauce to cool slightly, but not too much or it will set up. Now here's what you need for the cheesecake batter: Combine the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract and mix on medium low speed. We don't want too go too fast or we'll incorporate too much air and the cheesecake won't be as smooth. Add the strawberry sauce, and mix. In a separate bowl, whisk the cream to form stiff peaks. Gradually fold the cream into the strawberry cheesecake mixture. Pour the cheesecake into the refrigerated crust. Pound it on the counter a few times to flatten it out. Allow the cheesecake to set for about 2 hours in the refrigerator. Once it is set, pour the remaining strawberry sauce over the top - another bang will ensure it's smooth! and return to the refrigerator for another 30 minutes. Run a hot knife around the cake, before popping open the springform pan. This wonderful no-bake cheesecake can be made a day ahead, and in fact, it tastes even better with a little more time in the refrigerator.

In this video ------------------------------ One of my favorite seam finishes is the French seam, simply because there are no raw edges inside the garment. It's great on slinky fabrics like this silk charmeuse Hi I’m Angela Wolf, let me show you how easy it is to sew a French seam. If you use a plain seam you'll need to finish these raw edges of the seam allowance to avoid fraying. But a French seam's seam allowance is already finished as part of the process! Check your sewing pattern to determine what the seam allowances are. I find it easiest to change my seam allowances to 1 inch. / Say my pattern has seam allowances that are 5/8 of an inch - I'll add 3/8 of an inch to each seam allowance before cutting out my pattern. Unlike a plain seam, you'll start with the wrong sides of the fabric facing each other and stitch with a half-inch seam allowance Trim the seam allowance to about a quarter of an inch Press the seam allowance to one side - it’s a good idea to press from both sides of the seam just to make sure the fabric lays nice and flat Now fold the fabric along that stitch line, enclosing the seam allowance, and press again. Use a tailor’s clapper if you have one for a nice crisp crease. Next, stitch right along this pressed edge with a half-inch seam allowance, to encase the raw edges. Press the seam allowance towards one side. Remember if you’re using this seam in a garment you'd press towards the back of the garment... See how nice this looks, and it’s super easy!

Join more than 10 million passionate makers on Craftsy, where you can access expert instruction, supplies, patterns, and endless inspiration to help you make more of what you love. In this video -------------------- Give a new life to your favorite T shirts by turning them into a T shirt quilt! I'll show you how easy it is in this step-by-step video. Hi, I'm Angela Walters! To get started on your t-shirt quilt, gather tee shirts that have sentimental value. Don't worry if they don't all match in color--the memories they represent are the most important part of this quilt. Sixteen shirts is the perfect number for a small lap quilt, it will give you four rows with four shirts in each row. You could use more or less depending on how many shirts you have or how large you want the quilt to be. Roughly cut out the front of the shirt with scissors. The cuts don't have to be smooth, we will straighten them out later. Since tee shirts are usually made out of knit material, they can be stretchy and a little tricky to work with. To help make cutting and sewing the shirts easier, we are going to use fusible interfacing. Use an iron to bond the interfacing to the back of the shirt. Be sure to read the manufacturer instructions for specific iron temperatures. Now that the shirts are stable and easier to work with, it's time to trim the shirts. / It doesn't matter what size they are as long as they are all the same, and the graphic or design is as centered as possible and doesn't get cut out of the block. For my quilt, I am going to cut the blocks 12" square. Using a t shirt ruler like this, or a clear plastic template will help you see where the design will be once the shirt is cut. I'm using a rotary cutter and ruler mat to carefully cut out the block, but you can use scissors. Once the blocks are cut, it's time to decide how you want to layout the quilt. Arrange the blocks in rows until you are happy with the design. You could order them chronologically, or by color. There is no wrong way to make your t-shirt quilt. HERE I'M JUST USING FOUR BLOCKS (ON CAM) Line up the edges of your blocks and pin them together to prevent any of the layers from slipping while sewing. Sew the blocks together with a 1/2" seam allowance. If you have a walking foot for your sewing machine, be sure to use it. It will help feed all the layers evenly as you sew. Press the seams open - ironing them flat will make the quilting process easier. Now line up the seams so that all the points are matching, and pin. / Take it to the machine and sew, again with a half inch seam allowance. Make those seams are sewn open. / Press everything nice and flat and your quilt top is finished!. Now we have to turn those blocks into a quilt by - guess what - quilting it! Pick out a fabric for the backing. Cut it at least 2 inches bigger than your t shirt quilt top on all sides. With the backing face down add a layer of batting and then place the t-shirt quilt-top face-up. Baste the layers of the quilt together using safety pins. Now it's time for my favorite part, the machine quilting. Grab a walking foot and lower the feed-dogs on your machine. (use SF014, lesson 9, shot 9-4 for feed dogs) (use SF018, lesson 5, shot 5-22 for walking foot) Place the quilt sandwich under the needle and begin stitching - I like to start in the center of the quilt and work outwards but you can start wherever you like. See how the walking foot helps feed the thick layers of fabric through the machine. Stitch your way back and forth across the quilt, avoiding thicker emblems or heavy paint. Quilting through those areas is no fun. Continue until you've quilted the whole thing. You are almost done, all that's left is to bind the raw edges of your quilt. First, trim the edges of your quilt sandwich so that they are straight. Choose your binding fabric and cut it out into strips using a rotary cutter and ruler or scissors. I cut mine to 2 1/4" wide. Then connect the strips together. One the end of one strip draw a 45 degree angle from one corner to the opposite side. Then at the machine lay that strip face down on a second strip to form a right angle.

In this video -------------------- As light as air, with just a hint of richness, nothing says French pastry like the macaron. /The secret's in the way you whip them up! Hi! I'm Zoe Francois - let's make macarons together! They're way easier than you think, and if you want the full recipe for free - click the i up in the right hand corner just there... Here's everything you need: First - prepare 3 baking pans with parchment. In a food processor mix together the almond meal and powdered sugar. Combine the egg whites and a pinch of cream of tartar and whip until it's foamy, and then slowly add the sugar and continue whipping until you get soft peaks. If you want to add color, this is when you'd do it. I like to use gel color for the best results. Continue whipping until you get to a stiff peak like this. Fold one third of the almond mixture into the whites, and the next third and then the last third. It's easier to manage when you do it this way. So right now, the macaron batter will be too thick to pipe; you'll need to continue folding until it starts to slump down the side of the bowl. Then it's ready to pipe. Using a pastry bag, fitted with a large round tip, pipe out equal-sized mounds of batter. It is helpful to have a template, so they all end up the same size. This will help them bake evenly and look pretty. (but remember to remove your template before you bake!) Once you have a tray piped out, bang it on the counter 7 or 8 times until the macarons are flat. Repeat with all the trays, until all the batter is used up. Let them sit at room temperature until they no longer look shiny and they've developed a skin on them. Bake, one sheet at a time, in the middle of a preheated oven for about 12 minutes. Check that each macaron has a "foot" like this - if they're stable when touched, then they're done! Once the shells are cooled, fill them with ganache or buttercream. They are perfect right away, but are equally as good a few days later if wrapped and refrigerated. I like to make a range of pretty pastel colors and serve them on a dainty dish!
