Need some more tips on how to make the sewing life easier. Although I don't sew apparel anymore, there are many tips I can adapt to my Buckets Gone Wild! patterns. One good tip is for the shank for buttons. That would work great for the buttons on the Mug Bucket. The tips for hand sewing a straight line over a long basting stitch would be good for embellishing the Jitter Bucket or the Go Bucket. I hope you can find something useful here as I did.
