Saturday wrapped up Part 2 of the zippered bag class for kids. The girls left with finished bags, all different fabrics, all with different experiences to remember. Hannah learned how to change a machine needle, as hers broke on a zipper. Natalie, who'd never sewn before this project, finished Saturday and went on to make an apron for herself - no pattern, just an idea in her head. Aline, a very experienced sewer, patiently waited at times as I helped the newbies, and took the time at the end to hand-stitch a spot where the zipper end showed through her bag (this greatly impressed me....her attention to detail) Cambree learned that sometimes, the backstitch function on a machine just DOESN'T work!! Emma finished her bag and was so excited to keep sewing that she whipped up a mini pillow, stuffed and all.
So here they all are, with finished bags:
In the meantime, fabric that's on it's way to the store:
I ordered 7 bolts of my very favorite colors and patterns from this collection.....I didn't love ALL of it, but it was hard to narrow down what to select. I hope it will be here by end of week!
Hope to see you at the shop soon!
