Have you ever wanted to create these fun little twister projects but have been too intimidated to try???  Lisa has partnered with The Fat Quarter Shop to do a great tutorial on YouTube to help you along your way!!   Lisa’s YouTube video shows you all the ins and outs to make sure your project turns out perfectly!! There are helpful hints on how to piece accurately, the correct way to press your seams and how to cut your twister carefully!

You are first going to want to start with your Twister or Pinwheel selection, you can do anything from the smallests Pinwheel tool which uses the 2.5″ mini charms to the Large Twister which uses Layer Cakes. There is a wide variety of Pre-Cuts available depending on which Twister or Pinwheel project you would like to do.  

Below I am going to show you the tools and products that you will need to create the project Lisa is making in this video. Lisa has used the Snowman Gatherings II line of fabric, and your in LUCK, all of our Pre-Cuts for this line are 20% off! You will also need to select a 1/2 yard of fabric for your border.



You will then need to have your pattern and tool ready. Lisa is doing this tutorial with the Itty Bitty Pinwheel pattern and template. 



After sewing and pressing your project, you will need to start cutting. Lisa uses the 18mm Rotary Cutter. You do not want to over rotate your cutters so this one does the job perfectly! 



Let us know how you enjoyed the tutorial. We will be doing a give away of the 18mm Rotary Cutter AND the Itty Bitty Pinwheel and Template to our favorite comment. 

Happy sewing,
