How’s it going!? You must be prepping all your holiday sewing! I love this time of the year because it’s filled with tons of inspiration. It makes me want to make everything I see! Last month, we had a huge dose of inspiration from a few makers that tested their creativity with our newest substrate: Rayon.
From funky garments to quilty projects (who knew you could make quilty things with rayon?!), these talented makers showed us their tips to sewing with this substrate along with tons of possibilities. Check out all 10 projects made with rayon during this fun blog hop hosted by Sarah from Sariditty Handmade.
- Double Layered Wrap Skirt
Can this skirt be anymore perfect for Fall? Our hostess with the most, Sarah made this stylish wrap skirt with Heritage and Arizona After fabrics by April Rhodes and the Simplicity #1164 pattern. From the colors to the length and everything else, just imagine wearing it for any Thanksgiving get together. Check out her blog post for all the details.
- Flowy Tunic
Sarah also invited her mom, Cynthia to join the blog hop and she made a coordinating tunic with Arizona After fabrics. Her look was comfy yet fashionable! Since Cynthia is an experienced garment sewer, she gave some valuable tips on how she handles rayon. See her guest post on Sarah’s blog.
- Rayon Plus Quilt
Who said you can’t add a little rayon to your quilts?! Nicole from Modern Handcraft showed us that this substrate is great for adding a little texture to your quilts.
