In my video below I demonstrate how to create pleats in a basic t-shirt top to make it a ‘designer top’. I have taken this video right out of my online sewing workshop – Designer Top No.2. It’s just one of the many sewing tutorial videos in the course.

The full course includes all videos required, photographs, download instructions and requirements to complete each designer step for this top.

I hope you enjoy watching this video segment!

Watch out at the 2min 30sec point where my special sewing assistant appears in the right hand corner of the video!

If you are struggling with slow download speeds and your video is stopping and starting, simply click play and then pause, wait approx 5mins for the full video to download and click play for a continuous video stream.

Please leave me a comment below, I would love to hear what you have to say and so would many of my other subscribers! I know this because so many of you told me in my sewing survey that you would like to hear from other sewers on my blog!

How to extend the life of your Ironing Board Cover while sewing!

Monday, October 10th, 2011

Hi Everyone,

As a sewer you will know there is always a lot of ironing and pressing to do while sewing. Pressing during sewing is an essential part of the sewing process to help make your garments professional.

Yet when it comes to pressing iron-on interfacing you can run into some challenges regarding your ironing board cover! It can become sticky and you can risk ironing on bits of fabric, dust and glue onto other pieces of your garment which is less than desirable!

So today’s sewing tip I share with you a fantastic tip to help keep your ironing board clean and extend the life of your ironing board cover.
