We’re back today with a Fashion Friday! Today’s project shows you how important it is to keep on hand our NEW HeatnBond® Soft Stretch to finish out those hems perfectly! Designer Jenifer Cowles has created a fun Kimono that she finished off the hem with our HeatnBond Soft Stretch.
I knew when I received these awesome knits from Girl Charlee that a kimono was a definitely on my list with the left over polka dots. Please check out the cute deer top that I made that is under the Kimono here. The knits are super soft and a dream to work with along with our new HeatBond® Soft Stretch. The HeatnBond® is the same product you know and love but now made for fabrics that stretch..perfect with this fun Girl Charlee Bolt Fabric!
