When I got these gorgeous canvas fabric prints that look so awesome together, I knew I had to make a bag that showed off two prints at the same time. This is a big sturdy tote bag that's perfect for taking to the beach, yoga class, or just to the grocery store. There are pockets on the inside and lots of room too.

It's finally here... the first Monday in April and time for our next Classic Blocks: Fresh Fabrics post! Last month we had a little vote for which block I would show you how to make and the winner was the churn dash. I love all the blocks we voted on, but I think this one is particularly special. A lot of the classic quilt blocks have their names rooted in history and this one is especially so.
It's been ages since we've had a Sewing 201 post, hasn't it? Well I've been sewing lots of knit binding on little knit tee shirts and dresses lately so I thought I'd show my process.
You can sew knit binding if your pattern calls for it, or as a substitute for facing or a typical ribbed neckline. If you are substituting it for a different edge finish, trim away the seam allowance.
