I realize that 3 posts in a two week time frame about a sewing project may seem over the top. But now that the big reveal of the finished product is here, I think you will agree that all 3 are completely warranted.
If it's not the cutest darn thing you have ever seen please feel free to let me know. As long as you provide photographic evidence of the thing that is cuter.
Here are some of the ones "completed" in class today.
I adore the orange and blue combo that Laura chose for her color scheme. Not to mention the embellishment she did on the outside. How fabulous is that beadwork and stitching?
Johanna's bag with that sweet fabric with little girls in dresses was just plain darling.
Kathy had this partially constructed sample available so we could visualize each step along the way. So helpful.
I love her use of all the polka dots, and that Kaffe Fasset binding is to die for.
This was one of the best classes I have ever taken. Extremely helpful instructor and a great classroom space with excellent tables and lighting.
I learned some skills that will come in handy in future projects and there is a finished product I love so much I am going to take it to bed with me tonight. In case I wake up and need to look at it again.
If this project doesn't make you want to sew, nothing will.
P.S. Thanks to the folks at Sarah's Fabrics in downtown Lawrence for the great experience.
