How to Make An In-the-Hoop Zippered Accessory Bag

Ever wish you could press a button on your sewing machine and it would sew a zipper for you? Or better yet, how about insert a zipper, line a small accessory bag in just one hooping, and stitch the whole thing together? Well, you can!

Do you ever wonder where designers get their inspiration? Everywhere! The trick is to leave your mind open to possibility.

Month 6 – Holly & Poinsettia: 3D Flowers

In this lesson I'll use customizing software to repurpose embroidery designs to create a 3D effect.
