If you’re interested in sewing, chances are that the creative process fascinates you. Yet, sometimes it’s helpful to have inspiration on adding details to make a style your own! Amy Barickman, of Indygo Junction, has mastered the art of personalizing patterns. She joined me on Sewing With Nancy for a 2-part series, One Easy Pattern—Six Terrific Looks.
This blog post features three of the inspirations. Here’s a preview:
Look #1—Showcase the Fabric
The first version of the featured jacket highlights the fabric. The swing silhouette with the mandarin collar lets the fabric be the focal point. We’ll then use this easy-sew style to add our creative touches.
Look #2—Button Art
For our second terrific look, make a statement with a framed, super-sized covered button. Needle Felting was added to the covered button fabric—an accent that can be completed in mere minutes. Then add framing, a rectangle of fabric behind the button—it’s now Button Art!
Look #3—Fleece & Felting Combo
Easy-to-sew fleece is the perfect palette to showcase two terrific techniques. For our third option, we started with a free-form needle felting design—it adds great impact. We enhanced the jacket even further with a whip stitched edge. You’ll enjoy learning the magical tip that ensures all the stitching will be perfectly even!
The pattern, book, and DVD are available as a terrific combo: One Easy Pattern—Six Terrific Looks.
