You may remember that in this post I mentioned going to Cleveland, OH to film two segments for It’s Sew Easy, the PBS sewing tv show. Well, the episodes haven’t started airing on tv yet and our local PBS station doesn’t air this show anyway. Boo-hoo. The good news is they did upload parts of the show to YouTube today! AH! I freaked when I watched it! I don’t think I will ever get tired of seeing myself on camera. Especially on a professional set with hair & makeup done. A B-I-G difference to my self-run production in my studio. It’s always nice to have professionals doing the producing, filming, lighting and audio for you so you can just focus on teaching. One day I’ll be able to afford my own crew.
In this video I teach you how to make a fold up play mat that doubles as a pillow for a child. These are fun projects to make with kids because they can choose fabric from your stash, help you with the design and theme idea and even sew some of it themselves. I use the Brother Scan N Cut machine to create the fun appliques on my daughter’s play mat. Super easy to do and the Scan N Cut really shines in this video. You will see how easy it is to use and how versatile it is when it comes to both built-in designs and scanning in your own images.
