Monthly Giveaway

I’m going to borrow an idea from one of my favorite people, Jaimie from Because of Leah. I love hearing from the people who purchase and use my tutorials. I especially love seeing what you create. So starting now, every month I will give away one TFS tutorial to a lucky person. All you have to do to enter is comment, post or like something on Tenderfeet Stitches Facebook wall or BLOG. Obviously, the more times you communicate with me the higher your odds of winning. I will randomly select a winner each month and that winner can select any tutorial in my Etsy shop free of charge. I look forward to hearing from ALL of you! p.s...the Malibu Mega Ruffle Dress could be yours for free, it debuts by the end of the month!

Make me Petti Please

It’s a proven fact, pettiskirts make people happy, they make people smile. Every girl needs one, whether young or old. So, if you’d rather make one than buy one, you may find the included information and links very helpful. The most basic things required are:
Other than those two essential things, Martha Steward and Kandi Lightner of Kaiya Eve Couture do a fabulous job showing us how to make the world a little bit fluffier. When selecting your chiffon, you need to obtain nylon chiffon, as it does not fray when cut. I suggest purchasing it in rolls to eliminate hours upon hours of cutting strip after strip. You can find these rolls here. I have never purchased from this company, but this is what you are looking for.
Be sure you watch the video on the left hand side of Martha’s page. If you have any questions about shirring, please visit this page and watch the video as well. I have also known people to use regular gathering techniques or a ruffling foot. So, shirring is not the only way to gather for this skirt.
Good luck and have fun with it. If not, go buy one! If you're looking for some thing beautiful to compliment your new petti, visit my shop and take a look at my princess dress patterns.
