Totes Big and Small. Totes Big and Small is an easy sewing project that you won't want to stop making. Whip up different sized bags in fun cotton prints. Carry around your lunch, books, or craft projects, or you could use a tote as a gift bag!
Couching is simply sewing a heavy thread in place with a finer thread. Its a retro technique, too, that was originally done by hand, but it works beautifully by machine as well. I use a zigzag stitch to secure the heavy thread in place.
