Clever Links: february 19, 2013

Originally this post was meant to air almost a month ago. Due to someone forgetting to publice it, that never happened. So without further delay:

Luckily there's always something like Pinterest and I was able to regroup part of my Clever Links links - that I lost last time.

Tricot-Biais
For starters I've found this really, really, REALLY handy tip on how to make your own biais-binding out of tricot. No more sides rolling to the inside and instandly you'll have the correct and exactly the same width. What do you need? Masking tape and fabric scissors! That's it! Wonderful, isn't it? Go and check it out at Miss P's. You'll have to scroll down a bit, but it's there.




Draped Collar
Have you ever wonderd how you could make a draped collar out of an ordinary one? Like before's link, this one isn't hard to figure out. You'll be suprised that you didn't think of it yourself! Just reed Eva's tutorial and before you'll know it, your very first selfdrafted draped collar is a fact. Really simple and it makes such a difference!




Fabric covered buttons
This handy tutorial shows you how you can put fabric on a button without the help of a buttonset. I don't know about you, but I don't owe such a thing and this is a way to bypass buying one and still having fabric covered buttons! It's also a great way to get rid of those extra bits of scrap fabric! The things you need are simple: fabric (scraps), needle and thread.
