I've been playing around with fabric over the past few days - fabric that I don't work with too much. One is Cuddle (from Shannon Fabrics) and the other is faux leather. I've been able to get a handle on the Cuddle, but the faux leather was a different story.
I like working with different textures because it adds dimension and a sense of style. I'm still tweaking the pattern - I want more faux leather to show. Once I'm done with this, the pattern will be posted on Shannon Fabric's My Cuddle Corner.
BTW, the faux leather wasn't difficult to work with! So don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and try something different. What sewing fear have you overcome?!
