Canvas Loose-Leaf Paper

 {2012 Craft Books}

Improv Sewing: A Freeform Approach to Creative Techniques; 101 Fast, Fun, and Fearless Projects: Dresses, Tunics, Scarves, Skirts, Accessories, Pillows, Curtains, and More by Nicole Blum and Debra Immergut

What you need to know:
  • 101 projects! including doodled stitching and stacked appliqué 
  • Many of these projects can be completed in an hour
  • Add photos of your completed projects from the book to the Improv Sewing Projects flickr group
About the project I made, Canvas Loose-Leaf Paper:
  • Quick, easy, instant gratification project 
  • All it takes is a small piece of canvas fabric, red and blue thread, and a sewing machine
  • This would be a perfect project for teaching a child how to use the sewing machine for the first time, to learn/practice sewing straight lines (In fact, I'm going to use this project to teach my 9 year old how to sew on the sewing machine very soon)
  • You really can 'write' on this 'paper', either with hand embroidery, little alphabet rubber stamps, or a disappearing ink marker
