March 2015 Schedule of Classes
Scrappy Mini Mug Mat
Monday, March 16, 1-4pm
Turn your tiniest of scraps into these adorable mug mats. Using this method, fuse 1” squares of fabrics onto a special interfacing. Then simply sew on the lines printed on the interfacing. It is extremely accurate and eliminates handling each individual piece and the frustration of trying to sew small pieces and having them drawn down into the bobbin area of your sewing machine. This is a technique that can also be used to make many more items including whole quilts. Class fee: $15.00
