Let's Get Organized/August - Bernice Duffy

We’re joining with ByAnnie to bring you a monthly pattern series based on the theme “Let’s Get Organized!”  Not only will you have useful projects to organize your home, work space, and car, but you’ll learn useful skills and techniques to increase your sewing skill repertoire.  Learn how to make your own bias binding, create zippers of any length by adding zipper pulls to zipper tape, cover strapping with fabric to coordinate with your projects, sew with vinyl, make mesh pockets, and so much more!  Our second project will be the Nesting Baskets (August).
