Amy Barickman Introduces her course: The Gingham Primer! We're so excited that she is joining us as a guest instructor here on Sewing With CInnamon & Friends!
The course will kick off next Tuesday with a sew-along project to make a drawstring bag with your selected gingham fabric. We encourage you to find something to upcycle, like a vintage apron, mens dress shirt, or a keepsake dress!
If you don't have those items on hand, we also have a Pixie Pack kit ready to ship right to your door! Find it here: https://www.pixiefaire.com/collections/pixie-packs/products/pixie-packs-sewing-with-gingham-course-kit
In it you'll find 2 gingham fat quarters, 4 skeins of embroidery floss, a hand sewing needle, and 4" embroidery hoop! Each kit includes the supplies to make both the drawstring bag featured by Amy and the doll-sized apron featured by Cinnamon using the
Love U Bunches Retro Apron in the final installment of the course!
