Vinyl Pouches Workshop Finishes

Last Saturday we had a wonderfully productive day in the studio making Vinyl Pouches.     For most of the ladies it was their first time negotiating the petulant vinyl through their machines (after taming it on the cutting mat!).   Tissue paper was our secret weapon, placed under the vinyl when sewing.  This helps […]

Easy Peasy Pouches Workshop

Next up on my series of Summer Workshop posts are my Easy Peasy Pouches!     It's funny how often I come across folks with an inherent fear of zippers!   I remember my own fear of them once upon a time. But oh, the wonderful freedom I experienced once I faced my fear, able […]
