The other day I bought a lime green jelly clip frame, not knowing what I would do with it. When I laid it next to my handwoven leftovers from my table runner, I knew they belonged together.
Next I set out to make Sotak Handmade's Foldover pouch from another of my handwoven. This time....
Perfection! Of course Svetlana's pattern is perfect, as always. The fabric was bulky and the final turning was a challenge but it adds just the right bulk to this little bag. Yay!
I'll be making more of these for sure! Tips for working with handwoven fabric:
I traced my pattern pieces onto SF101 (my favorite interfacing), Ironed in onto the back of the fabric. Next I zigzagged just inside the cutting line to prevent my fabric from unravelling and cut the pieces out on the drawn line.
Any time I needed to cut a piece of handwoven, I zigzagged on either side of the cutting line.
It worked out great! Now, what to try next....
