    I love the idea of a needle case. I am a quilter as well as a knitter, so will enjoy your tutorials. I am enjoying your beautiful fabric. Thank you again for something new to look forward to.

    Your backing fabric on the placemat should be in a accommadating colour to the front. It will look much nicer and you can turn it round.

    I would think you should pre-wash (and thereby pre-shrink) and iron your fabric before cutting and sewing?

    Instead of the muslin I would use one of the coordinating fabrics for the back. Than you can use both sides of the placemat.

    You’ve made my day here in chilly southern Australia. You’re sewing machine looks to be exact same model as mine which I love and have done since 1976! To make beautiful articles you have confirmed it is up to the task and I don’t need a fancier computerised model!

    Don’t worry about including inches or our barbaric method of measurement used in the US. Our rulers almost always have cm and inches both! In 5th grade we studied the metric system expecting to switch….but it didn’t happen, I’m over 75. Love you guys!

    Dear Arne and Carlos
    Love your material, you were asking for ideas for what to make, one suggestion I have are covers for dining chairs, I have them on mine as the seat part is light in colour and it keeps the chair clean. the cover I have at the moment is a complete cover that fits over the entire chair and there are loops attached so that ties are threaded through and tied nicely at the back of the chair to enable it to fit any size. I wish I could send a photo to show you as the covers I have at the moment are getting a bit shabby after washing and are only plain. There was no other choice of colour when I purchased them and I think it would look a lot smarter in a lovely material.
    just one suggestion but I am not sure if this will be a popular idea with your other followers your fabric is lovely and there must be many more ideas.Thank you so much for your lovely tutorials.

    True. As Laurel mentions it is important to wash both muslin and fabric before sewing. Then ioning and sewing. That way you can avoid shrinking (the two fabrics might shrink differently). However, wonderful fabric designs you have made.

    Hi Arne & Carlos! I would love a pattern for a good eyeglass case. The choice is usually between a rigid bulky version or a very lighter version that doesn’t hold the glasses securely. You both wear glasses so here is a challenge for you 🙂

    Your fabric is gorgeous :). I enjoyed the video about sewing and would like to sew more sewing videos (when Carlos is well again). Perhaps matching napkins, coasters, hot pot pad, needle cases for straight and circular needles, project bags for knitting. So many ideas! Thank you for the video.
