Does anyone have a specific area in their home that brings them bliss? For me, it’s my backyard where every time I need to relax or make important decisions, it’s the first place I go to. And over time, I’ve curated it to be my own little sanctuary, where I started my garden a couple of months ago and so, I placed a chair right in the center surrounded by some solar powered string lights and it’s the special part of my home that I can call mine. I bring this up because when I read ...

The Prettiest and Strongest Seam: The Flat Felled Seam from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello my fellow makers!

Today we will talk about the Flat Felled Seam, a seam that lays flat on the right and wrong sides of your project. It is famously known for its strength and beauty. You can find it in your daily life on the sides of your jeans, in men’s shirts, and even in outdoor gear like camping tents. Also, you can find it in a more sacred place like the Pojagi patchwork, a Korean artform that uses improvisational piecing joined by hand sewn flat felled seams. Pojagi pieces are used to wrap special presents, protect sacred ...
