Because one of Teresa’s favorite things is s’mores by the campfire on her “on the road” tour, this week’s episode of Sew Together Tuesday is all about making a little s’more zipper bag by Parker on the Porch!
The embroidery-based design is made to be done in-the-hoop (ITH). This means that no sewing machine is needed, as this entire project can be completed with an embroidery machine.
We’ll be joined by the expert herself — Jen Chesnick, the designer behind Parker on the Porch — LIVE from her local quilt shop, Tomorrow's Treasures in Crofton, MD. She’ll share her inspiration behind the idea and tips for making the process as easy as possible.
