We’re back today with a Fashion Friday! Today’s project shows you how important it is to keep on hand our NEW HeatnBond® Soft Stretch to finish out those hems perfectly! Designer Jenifer Cowles has created a fun Kimono that she finished off the hem with our HeatnBond Soft Stretch.
I knew when I received these awesome knits from Girl Charlee that a kimono was a definitely on my list with the left over polka dots. Please check out the cute deer top that I made that is under the Kimono here. The knits are super soft and a dream to work with along with our new HeatBond® Soft Stretch. The HeatnBond® is the same product you know and love but now made for fabrics that stretch..perfect with this fun Girl Charlee Bolt Fabric!
Fashion Friday – Easy Kimono Top Featuring Girl Charlee Knits
Planners and Travelers Notebooks are all the rage right now. I love Travelers notebooks and I love Cori Dantini’s Mermaid Days by Blend Fabrics, so I thought I would combine them and get the best of both worlds. I am so happy with how this turned out that I am going to be making several more. These would make great gifts.
Erasable marking pen, Iron (Oliso Pro), sewing machine, sharp scissors, other general sewing supplies, Elastic, ribbon and kam snaps.
Mermaid Days Travelers Notebook:
Assemble the cover as desired and trim to 8 ½” by 12”. Be aware that the cover of the notebook is on the right. Fuse the Fleece to the cover and quilt as desired.
Once you have your cover quilted adhere the vinyl. This will help keep our journal clean and make it last longer.
Hem the top of your pocket add ribbon now if you choose. Sandwich the cover to the inside and the pocket and bind like you would a quilt.
I added a ribbon closure by sewing the ribbon to the back and inserting a Kam snap to the other end. I love how this really keeps everything in place. You can put charms on the spine and decorate as desired. Throw this in your purse or bag and you now have a special place to jot down notes and dreams or even grocery lists.
