Fabric Manipulation

I have a subscription to threads magazine and I love the thought of bringing couture details to crafts. This month they had a tutorial on notched tucks which I thought looked really cool. Here’s my last, and I think successful attempt to copy the technique using linen.

The above sample is the sewn method as shown in the tutorial but I tried another technique which involved fabric glue below.

First attempt

I also thought about trying this technique with colour so I sewed together a bunch of jelly roll strips to create a gradient.

Second attempt

The plan is to make zippy pouches with these though it took me longer than expected because of all the pleating. What do you think?

    • Thanks Candy, I like it too, maybe it’ll become a cushion cover? Or maybe it’ll go into the experimental drawer to be resurrected at some other time. 😀

  1. Those are crazy!! You do such amazingly detailed work. I envy your precision.
    I need another sewing date with you! 🙂

  2. They look amazing, you have been very busy with your time off. You look like you have been emptying out all your fabric stashes over the last couple of weeks. Now you are going to have fun finding places for all you great projects you did.
