On September 6th we celebrate Read a Book Day and on September 8th we celebrate International Literacy Day. Reading can help prevent Alzheimer’s, enhance memory, boosts your analytic thinking and so much more! Starting kids while they are young can make reading fun and a pleasurable activity rather than a chor. Our new book panels coming in this fall are perfect for gift giving and encouraging the little ones to read! These book panels are new this season and will be available late September!
Whether you are looking for a mat to avoid your machine slipping or need some accessible storage, this sewing caddy is perfect for any sewing room! It’s easy to make and will leave you feeling organized and ready to sew.
Upcycle an old backpack with some fun appliques! Let the kids pick out their appliques and use one of our four methods to attach.
Heat n Bond Ultra (optional)
606 Adhesive Spray (optional)
Embroidery Thread & Needle (optional)
Use heat n bond ultra to create a stronger bond between the applique and backpack. Trace your applique on the heat n bond and cut out. Press your applique to the heat n bond and peel off the paper backing. Cover with a pressing cloth and hold and press for 20 seconds or until adhered.
Use a piece of cardboard or newspaper to protect your work surface. Place your applique face down and spray with 606 Adhesive Spray. Place onto your backpack, cover with a pressing cloth and hold and press for 20 seconds or until adhered.
If your applique has a good border you can embroider it onto the backpack with a blanket stitch.
You can use the natural adhesive from the applique also. On rough or thick fabrics it might not adhere as well.
