You can use these printed rubber bands to sew a skirt in a jiffy! Just cut two rectangular pieces of fabric to size, ensuring that they are approximately 40 cm longer than your hip measurements, close the side seams, hem and then top-stitch the upper edge to the stretched rubber band. The basic skirt is ready! This is so quick to make, you can sew a number of them at once.
You can use cute buttons to make sewing projects for your little darlings even more unique. Embellish a lovely cardigan with little bow-shaped wooden buttons or sew the buttons on as accents on a cuddly toy. However, you should never use buttons for baby clothing, since the small parts can be easily swallowed. And, of course, we don’t want that!
With some embellishments, sewing by hand is the best option, a case in point being the pearl cord.

Although this is a little laborious and can take some time, it can also be very relaxing!

You can use faux leather ribbons to fashionably embellish an outfit in no time at all. As well as wide ribbons, we also have bias binding and piping in faux leather. All you need to do is to decide whether you’d like to trim the edges of your new poncho with shiny, silver-coloured bias binding or in a simple black. It’s essential that you insert a leather needle in your sewing machine to work the faux leather ribbons and that you select a somewhat larger stitch length.
