GRACE FRAGA: Chantelle is sewing. So, how–what
technique do you use to sew? What kind of sewing ’cause there’s different patterns,
right? CHANTELLE TIBBS: Yeah, there’s different patterns. I mean, you could go–right now,
I’m just going in and out. It’s a basic stitch. GRACE FRAGA: Okay, let’s see. CHANTELLE TIBBS:
You’re going to want–that’s the basic stitch like that. GRACE FRAGA: Oh, wow! Okay. CHANTELLE
TIBBS: Yeah. So, you’re going to want to choose your stitch. Also too, if you want to go by
it a little bit faster you can have–’cause there are different kinds of sewing machines
that you can go about getting and might make your life a lot easier but for the sake of
the show I’m just going to hand sew so… GRACE FRAGA: Well, and it’s also–if you don’t
have a sewing machine then you can just go ahead and do it this way. CHANTELLE TIBBS:
You can do it this way. You’ll notice that I keep–I’m sewing in the middle of the design
and I’m keeping a certain amount of distance from here so we’re not sewing too close to
the edge. You don’t want the edge to come away from the thread. You want it to actually
be what’s holding it down there. So, this is like–it’s not so close to the edge. Also
too, if you don’t want stitching and this isn’t your thing and you’re like, “You know
what? I’m not going to sew. I don’t feel like it.” That’s cool too. You can also use fabric
glue. There’s a number of them that are good out there. GRACE FRAGA: Really? Where can
you buy those? CHANTELLE TIBBS: Same place you buy the fabric paint. It’s just fabric
glue. GRACE FRAGA: And how do you apply it? CHANTELLE TIBBS: You’re going to apply it
just the same way that you would paper on top of paper. You’re going to put it on the
back of here. GRACE FRAGA: Okay. CHANTELLE TIBBS: And then you’re going to out it there.
And then you know what? I use a dryer when I use fabric glue just to make sure that…
GRACE FRAGA: they’re there. CHANTELLE TIBBS: Uh-huh. So, again, I’m up on the edge and
I normally have a seamstress for this so… GRACE FRAGA: Yes, which is mom, right? CHANTELLE
TIBBS: Yeah, mom and then there’s another girl. There’s another girl as well so… GRACE
FRAGA: You’re doing very well. CHANTELLE TIBBS: Thank you. But–yeah, so that’s–I mean–and
you know what I think? I think this color was a really good choice. I think it’s complimenting
everything. [OVERLAPPING] GRACE FRAGA: It really does compliment the orange. CHANTELLE
TIBBS: So, yeah, that’s how to sew.
