Our newest fabric, Chiffon, is making its center stage DIY debut today with the help of longtime blog contributor and talented designer, Ceri Staziker (aka Cerigwen). This blousy and ultra-sheer fabric is a dream for projects that require a material with a light touch and beautiful drape. Today, follow along as Ceri shows how to sew this gorgeous ballet wrap skirt in our new Chiffon using her free PDF pattern. For Ceri’s daughter (and maybe even you!), when its time to hit the dance floor, she’ll be twirling in style thanks to her custom Chiffon ballet wrap skirt for under $25.
Today’s tutorial comes from our creative friend and textile designer Ceri Gwen. She shares how to stitch up the sweetest hand strap clutch using an engineered design she created that fits perfected on a fat quarter of fabric. Whip one up for an upcoming holiday party or make a few as gifts for friends!
Ceri: Recently I’ve been seeing more and more clutch bags with hand straps and think they look so good–what a neat and practical idea it is! I wanted to try and make my own version and came up with this quick and easy pattern. It’s a compact clutch but easily accommodates all of your essentials.
