Course Description

Jeans and a t-shirt make up about 85% of my wardrobe. Denim is comfortable, it can be dressed up or down and is very durable. Denim may be a wardrobe staple for most of us but it can be intimidating to work with.

In this class I'll share my tricks and tips for working with denim all while making a reversible headband.

The headband pattern is included at no extra charge.

I'm going to cover:

  • fabric care
  • thread
  • needles
  • machine set up
  • proper stitch length
  • The correct machine stitch

By the end of this class you'll be sewing denim with confidence!
