Leftover Potholder Tutorial from Mixed & Stitched

Today, we’re so excited to introduce you to a book that combines the things we love here at Stitch Craft Create: sewing and crafting!

In Mixed and Stitched, author Jen Osborn combines some basic mixed-media art techniques with sewing, to create unique projects that are more than just pretty—they’re useful!

In Mixed and Stitched, you’ll learn great techniques (including a stovetop fabric dyeing technique), some innovative sewing techniques, and methods that show you how to incorporate your own unique, artistic voice into your sewn creations.

Easy fabric dyeing technique.
