This week I went way outside of my quilting comfort zone, and made a tunic for my daughter. I was very glad to have the Point 2 Point Turner on hand. This handy gadget is one of the 10 Sewing Notions You Need to Know About.
Then, the Stick n’ Stitch Guide and I had a little reunion party in celebration of 3/8″ seam allowances.
Before my Point 2 Point Turner could get jealous, I used it to push out the long seams around the neck hole.
I omitted the bottom band and the sleeve bands, adding their length onto the main pieces because I didn’t have another fabric I wanted incorporate. To finish the bottom edge and sleeves, I turned them over 1/2″, then 1/2″ again using the Hot Ruler, before top-stitching.
Next week, I’ll be presenting the last of the 10 Sewing Notions You Need to Know About. You won’t want to miss it, especially if you’re sick of turning fabric tubes with a safety pin.
