They may be small, but a fat quarter is perhaps the mightiest cut of fabric. During this week’s challenge, create your very own cut-and-sew project for a fat quarter of fabric.


Overview

From dolls to pencil cases to DIY ornaments, the real question is what can’t you make with a fat quarter of fabric? To help you get started, Spoonflower designer Ceri Staziker– cerigwen in the Marketplace—is sharing seven design tips for successfully creating a cut-and-sew project.
