    Beach Tote Pattern with Machine Embroidery

    Beach Tote Pattern – Reimagined from the Aurora Bag A beach tote doesn’t have to be fussy or complicated. But it does need to be roomy and easy to wear. The Aurora pattern, designed by Sallie Tomato in partnership with Sulky for our 2021 New Year’s Eve Sew-Along event, is a large bag that has strap options and a zipper closure, with plenty of space on the front for added embellishments. So it lends itself well to a beach tote “remix.” We’ll start with this pattern but change up a few things and add a beach-themed embroidery design. Then, we’ll have the perfect beach tote to bring to the boardwalk,…

    Fifth Avenue Fanny Pack Pattern Review

    Fifth Avenue Fanny Pack by Sallie Tomato Pattern Review & Strap Variations The Fifth Avenue Fanny Pack by Sallie Tomato is really more of a “belt bag” than a fanny pack, as it is worn across the shoulder rather than over the “fanny.” However, it’s versatile with an adjustable, wide strap that allows you to wear it either way. Using Sulky Poly Deco Thread is recommended on the pattern, and we couldn’t agree with that choice more! The Fifth Avenue Fanny Pack is currently a free pattern (with video!) on the Sallie Tomato site. It can be made from almost any type of fabric, which means it is stash raiding…

    Pillow with Yarn Couching

    Yarn Couching Pillow for Spring Experiment with yarn couching and create a springy pillow that literally says “hello.” The lettering is couched onto the pillow fabric using Sulky Invisible Thread, which allows the fuzzy yarn texture to take center stage. The pop of pom-pom fringe brings all the colors together with a fun accent for your couch or outdoor dining set. WHAT IS YARN COUCHING? Couching is a decorative technique whereby a fiber (yarn, in this case) is laid over a fabric and stitched in place. Many machine brands offer couching, sometimes called “braiding,” feet and/or attachments for your sewing machine that make the process even easier. There are several…
