How to sew pretty much anything
Do you want custom clothing, or the perfect backpack, or a matrix screensaver print slipcover for your bitcoin mining rig? Do you want to make it yourself? After this talk you'll know enough to go practice your sewing skills, design your own patterns, and generally make stuff!
This session will share the basic skills and principles I use to sew items ranging from custom clothing to hiking gear to plushies of my favorite programming language's mascot:
* Identifying different types of fabric and choosing a good one for the project at hand
* Best and worst ways to attach materials to each other
* How to make your own sewing pattern
* How to turn a self-made paper pattern into a cloth item
I'll provide you with the tools and materials to practice these skills on a simple sewing project.
