Rainy days are the best for sewing aren’t they?? Saturday morning we were thinking just that. Check out these awesome baskets made in this weeks Soft Basket class. We had a great time sewing & watching the rain through the front windows. And it did help that Blackbird had sticky buns and fresh coffee!!
Coordinating some old fabrics from fabric stashes and new fabrics from our store, ducks, birds, flowers and prints-they each have a personality of their own, don’t they?
In this class we learned an easy technique on how to insert a round bottom, channel quilting, how to apply a band, and handles. The handles are pre-made of heavy duty canvas with contrast topstitching to give a utilitarian look to the basket, you could also make the handles of a contrast fabric to give it a different look-all these options are discussed in class.
Warm summer evenings are also great for sewing!
Check out these students and their projects from last Thursday nights Quilted Cosmetic Bags class.Can you tell we had fun? We learned how to quilt, insert a zipper, made a loop handle and a cool zipper pull accent, too!
I was so inspired I made another one the next morning using Amy Butler home dec fabric to match my laptop cover.
Look for these classes on the schedule for August
