Scrolling through Tasha Moss’s Instagram feed, you might just feel like you’ve taken a step back in time. Tasha’s iconic vintage style — see it all documented on her blog, By Gum, By Golly — mixed with her no-fear approach to sewing makes her the perfect person to test out our newest fabric, Dogwood Denim™. If sewing with heavyweight fabrics like denim, Celosia Velvet or Eco Canvas have you running out of the sewing room, we think Tasha’s top tips will be just what you need to get started!
Zipper pouches require only a little bit of skill and a fat quarter of fabric, but they go a long way in showing off your personal style. Make one in Satin or Celosia Velvet as an evening accessory or whip one up in Dogwood Denim™ to wrangle travel essentials in your car or corral pencils in your kid’s backpack.
Whether you go functional or decorative, these make an easy (and fun!) way to get organized.
There are so many reasons to be excited about Spoonflower’s newest addition, Dogwood Denim™ – it’s durable enough for a variety of projects that take a lot of wear and tear, but softens up in the wash just like your most-loved pair of jeans.

However, we know the idea of sewing with such heavy fabric can be a little intimidating to the novice sewist. That’s why Spoonflower staff members Meredith, Alexis, and Gina have teamed up to create the Dos’ and Don’ts of Dogwood Denim: 5 tips and tricks to ensure that your next (or first) Dogwood Denim project is a breeze.
