I needed 1/2" binding for my skirt class, so decided to try to make some. I bought the little gadget from Clover, sliced up some skirt fabric & you can see the result in the photo, above.
I was also in our basement & came across some paper inside an Ikea box...I think this is the paper others were recommending buying to use as pattern paper, so I rolled it up & will take it along to class, too...though we might be making our patterns on muslin instead.
The fabric is a wax print that I bought in Ghana. Wax prints have a strange and wondrous history, all based on shipping routes & trade. Find out more here!
