Designer Lisa Shepard Stewart demonstrates functional covers for tablets made from exotic placemats.
Make your sewing functional and practical. You can solve problems in your very own home and business with projects you design! On today's show, function is foremost but we never forget style! Designer Lisa Shepard Stewart is first with functional covers for tablets made from exotic placemats - these are beautiful as well as practical. Then, it's Sarah McFarland with a lesson on reading a pattern. We take this for granted, but selecting the right size, choosing the correct fabric, and cutting and sewing a garment is on or within the pattern envelope. Sarah shows how to decipher the terms and symbols on the envelope, guide sheet, and pattern tissue to put you on the right track to great results. We finish up with a return visit from Pearl Krush and a cuddly pet bed - practical can also be pretty when you add iron on appliques and boxed corners to make the perfect bed for your favorite pet.
