Bobbin compartments are like the dungeons of sewing machines, but they're not as scary as they used to be. If you're going to sew, you're eventually going to have to visit the dungeon to clean it out. A build up of thread and lint can lead to MAJOR headaches.
Look at how easy it is to get in and get out...

Cotton + Steel's Fruit Dots Dotties Blue
I fell in love with this cotton print the very first time I saw it! The ladies with their bouffants and afros are classically beautiful and the cherries add the perfect "pop" of color.
I'd definitely have some fun with this playful print. It would be quite the conversation piece as a cropped blazer or bomber jacket. I can also see it as a large clutch purse. It's a very versatile lightweight cotton, so your only limit is your imagination. It can be ordered here.
What would you make or like to see made with this adorable print? Leave your ideas in the comments.
I'm so excited to announce that I'm officially teaching sewing workshops! It's so rewarding to teach others the craft of sewing!
The objective of my workshops is to give my students the tools they need to continue sewing for themselves and others. The series of workshops will cover everything from threading the machine to more complex techniques like sewing from a pattern, installing zippers, and adding pockets.
Students are encouraged to bring their own sewing machines if they have them, or they can use one of the machines provided.
Classes are being held throughout the summer, the schedule can be found here. I can't wait to see y'all in class! Are there any specific techniques you want to learn? Post them in the comments and we'll see if we can cover them in class!
