Quick and Easy Machine Wrapped Cords - A simple sewing machine project! [NOW LIVE]

Welcome to my Skillshare class.

In this class we will be making our own machine thread wrapped cords.

We will be using a standard home sewing machine.  Any basic home sewing machine with a zigzag stitch is suitable for this project.

Suitable for any skill level, however you should be able to thread your machine and select the correct stitch and alter length and width, (refer to your machine manual if in doubt here).

The completed cords can be used in any number of craft or sewing projects.

Basic supplies needed for the class;

  • Sewing machine in good working order with a zigzag stitch.
  • Machine sewing threads in varying colours (polyester or machine embroidery thread).
  • Wool / Yarn or string.
  • Small Scissors.
  • Piece of scrap fabric or felt.

Once you have learnt to make these cords, they are great to use in your home craft projects.

Here are a few ideas;

  • Sewn on as an edging to a piece of fabric.
  • Couched or sewn down onto a piece of fabric as decoration.
  • Used in varying thicknesses as handles on bags etc.
  • As cord tie closures for decorative notebooks etc.

Please join me for this Skillshare class. Its a great way to use up odd coloured reels of machine thread you have lying around and make something useful in the process!
