Video: How to Mix Cotton and Cuddle® Minky Plush Fabric (SEW Gnome Tutorial)

This week’s episode of Sew Together Tuesday is going to be a fun one — our National Educator Teresa Coates will be joining Sam Hunter of Hunter’s Design Studio in her home studio! They’ll talk about her festive gnome patterns and why they’re the perfect projects for mixing cotton with Cuddle® appliqué (they are great Cuddle® scrap-busters for the leftover bits from other STT projects, too).

They’ll also talk with Sam about her inspiration and her pattern design process, and demonstrate how easy it is to mix substrates/fabric types on these adorable banners with the right tools, notions and techniques. 

If you’re looking for more, we used Sam’s Bloomin’ Too pattern at KC Maker last year to talk about paper piecing with Cuddle®.
