This week, I started working with some ‘alternative’ sewing materials. Recently, I took this material in my garage and cut it down to a manageable size… I’m sure my neighbors were once again wondering what I was up to. However, it wasn’t until the other day that I actually got to ‘play’ with it in my sewing room – where I learned some great tips on working with this fabric: like it sews nicely, but turning it right side out is a PITA.

Now that I’ve had a chance to see how this material behaves, I’m ready to turn it into a new tutorial for The Sewing Republic! I’m very excited to get to work on this project because I think this material will really make it stand out. I’m intending on adding a slew of tips on working with this material as well – that way if you chose to make this item for yourself (you also have the option of using ‘standard’ fabric as well), you won’t have to spend a lot of time trying to figure it out and struggling with the material. I’ll also be sure to put up a teaser of the finished project once I’m done!
