I am a big fan of Jen at Workroom Social and all of the amazing projects she creates.  She is the force behind Camp Workroom Social which happens this fall and has a beautiful studio in Brooklyn where she teaches sewing and printmaking among other things. Such a talented lady. And, she has done it again. She teamed up with McCalls to create a series of quirky and interesting videos that help you customize their patterns and add your own personality to them. I think that McCalls has come out with some really cool patterns lately and videos like this can really help you look past the styling or fabric choice of the envelope that may be good for someone else, but make it more suitable for you own tastes.



So far she has talked about bias tape and sheer fabrics, both of which were full of fun ideas and inspiration, but today I get to share her video about creating your own quilted fabrics to add interest to your clothing. Quilted clothing is really big right now and I have had such a hard time sourcing fabric that was already quilted. Jen’s tutorial makes it simple and precise to create your own. I love the idea of quilting only small areas of an item for interest such as a yoke or pocket. I hope you enjoy it!
