Sandra Betzina on The Bathing Suit Project

Bathingsuit-blog_medium

Making a bathing suit is not a quickie project because you cannot fit as you go. I’m a fearless sewer and make almost everything I own (including leather jeans), but making a bathing suit I love has proven to be a challenge.

Crafting Apps

With the new iPod pre-sales starting last week, it got me wondering what sorts of crafty apps are available for the new phone:

Want to know the fabric lurking in your stash? The Fabric Stash inventory\organizer will keep all your goodies right at your fingertips. Not only is it a great way to see what you have on hand, but you’ll always have a fabric swatch available while your out shopping.

100610bscmountainviewca_medium

While attending the recent Maker Faire in California, we were so excited to meet some of our super-special BurdaStyle members, including BSC Mountain View, CA leader MrsKirko. MrsKirko, better known simply as Hannah, came with her little baby in tote, and was just as wonderful in-person as she seemed online. She also came well-prepared to promote her growing sewing club, complete with sign-up lists and information tags! It was great seeing her initiative and excitement, so of course I had to ask her to give us the rundown of her club:

Renegade-nl100614_medium

Last weekend BurdaStyle was deep in the heat of Brooklyn, NY. at the Renegade Craft Fair. With over 300 amazing vendors, our tent was whirring away teaching dozens of people how to sew. We had four year-olds learning how to sew next to established designers and all of them creating these amazing bags on the Singer sewing machines.

Check out our photo slide show with action shots from the event.

2. What was the 1st thing you made? How did you start sewing?
I sewed a lot of my own clothes in college just because I was short on money and really longed for some things I could not afford.

Bob Martin on: Behind the scenes

Blog11_medium

Hey everybody! I hope your enjoying my posts and video blogs here on BurdaStyle.

I wanted to share with you a little behind the scenes of my last video. While preparing to make that post, I was printing the moth out for my collages and to save on paper and time, I duplicated the image of the moth and arranged it in such a way that I could fit as many as possible onto one page, yet easily cut around them for my collages. That way I would get the most out of each page of paper.
