Modern Qaspeq Tutorial

I finally created a modern qaspeq tutorial. I did my best with what I had. My sewing room might have been too sunny and I could have prepped better for the tutorial but I had the time and wanted to create a video to share with you.

I am the worst with technology and it took me two days to figure out how to work iMovie and paste clips together but I finally got it.

When I make modern qaspeqs I typically use:

2 yards 100% cotton fabric

1 yard of knit rayon spandex

The knit that I like to use is from Joann’s is a 4 way stretch and I will include the link:

As well as a shop called Made of Love I will include the link for the rayon/spandex knit that I like to purchase:

1 package of extra wide double fold bias

& 1 package of ric rac, piping, or single fold bias for the trimming

Like I said this video might not as easy to follow if you have not taken my class before but if you have any questions or are stumped with what to do you can always email me at sewyupik@gmail.com or send me a message on Facebook.

Good luck and if you are able to whip out a modern qaspeq with the help of these instructions please post a photo on my Sew Yup’ik Facebook page or tag me on your instgram post @sewyupik

Another busy last couple days sewing! I got some Mother Day gifts in the mail ๐Ÿ™‚ I treated myself to a nice new rolling bag for my fancy machine! And I upgraded my cottonwood buds in a nice new big jar so they can steep away nicely in the extra virgin olive oil.
