WIP Wednesday #88: Ruler stickers & zipper foot questions answered!!

In this WIP Wednesday episode Vanessa is answering presubmitted questions about:

– how to cut a lot of the same fabric pieces out without messing up
– how to mark your rulers so you know where to measure and cut
– how to work around different zipper feet
– zipper foot seam allowances

We also now carry Sew Hungry Hippie’s Soft Vinyl! We sell this buttery soft fabric in 10+ color ways and have sold out several times already. So, if you see something you like, order it while you can here: https://craftygemini.com/product-category/fabric/

This soft vinyl is heavier than quilting cotton but softer and lighter than cork fabric. It’s amazing to work with and can be fused to different interfacings or quilted to make fun bag projects.
