Easily add 1/4" seam allowance to curved seams

The "In the Pantry" pattern set includes one pattern with some gentle curved seams. A great beginners pattern if you've not sewn curved seams before.

To help you along the way, I've created a short video to guide you when cutting your 1/4" seam allowance around curved seams. This method is much easier and faster than using a seam guide to mark around the pattern piece, then cutting from dot to dot around the pattern.

Go ahead and try it, it really is as easy as it seems!

In the Pantry Set available

Kerry and I are no strangers when it comes to Kitchen-alia. It's our favorite thing to make patterns for so it's probably no surprise to you that's what our latest pattern set is all about. It's called "In the Pantry" and is a bounty of patterns which is full of options.

Mama's Pyrex includes an introduction to curved seams, which is a first here at Sew-Ichigo.  (Find a short video here on how to easily cut your 1/4" seam allowance for these curved seams.)
This pattern can be modified to a stack of two, three or four bowls.

The Storage Jars are full of options as well. You can mix and match lid handles, labels, and include a gift tag on your jar.

Then there's the knife, spoon and fork which you can bejewel or not. You choose!
