Panels are an essential part of some of our collections! They are designed to make DIY super easy and fun, as they come with simple instructions in Spanish and English so you can get your hands on scissors and sewing machine right away, no extra patterns needed. 

This can be a new format for most of you so we will try to compile some tips and tricks to sew them. Not that you absolutely need them, because, as I sad, they’re very simple. But some can help you understand the structure, cuts, sizes, sewing allowance, etc. 

Things you need to know:

  • When we started to print panels, in our very beginnings, we used the popelin cotton substrate. This was a plain, no stretch, fabric. But we wanted to use a ticker fabric. So we went with cotton canvas with a very soft touch. This material has a 3% elasticity (because of its extra soft touch). Now, this is important, because, when it is being printed there can be some extra tension on the machine and little “distortions” can occur. You may find that sometimes (in very punctual situations) the designs don’t fit 100%. This is not a terrible and not soluble situation!! Remember that the fabric has elasticity and you can stretch to match the design. Once turned and filled it will be just perfect, we promise!

  • Always cut in the dashed line! Our designs are thought to be cutted by that line and already include sewing allowance of 1cm.

  • Sometimes, specially if it’s cushion projects, we design little labels to go along. You can chose to use them or not. If yes, you have to prepare them in the first place: Cut, fold with the help of an iron the lower and upper sides and sew as close to the limit of the fabric as possible (so that you don’t stotch over the letters). You then fold in half, iron and reserve.

  • Always leave the hole to turn the project in the most flat area, avoiding round areas. Straight areas are easier to close by hand with impeccable finish.

  • If there is round areas, or sharp corners, don’t forget to cut the tips or make small cuts along the round side (without cutting the seams!) so that when you turn everything looks smooth. You can use a zig zag scissor to do this.

  • Fill with special cushion/doll filling, spreading out evenly on every corner and surface. Don’t be afraid to fill!! This will contribute to a better shape of the project.

  • After filling, if you feel the cushion, or other project, is too rinkle, you can always iron (no steam) and it will be perfect.

  • We recommend you close your cushions by hand with invisible stitch.
