sewing class

Cocktail Napkins

I really am a class monkey (great site!) as I have signed up for yet another craft lesson. This time it's sewing again. I have taken sewing way back when and I loved it but then didn't follow through on my education. Hmmm that is become a reoccurring theme, uh oh. That issue aside I've been feeling like it would be helpful if I could just start creating some basic sewn pieces from my felt goods. I am thinking simply place mats, runners and scarves very simple straight line sewn goods. Then I'll see what happens from there. Since I forgot all I learned, and threading a machine and bobbin felt intimidating, I signed up for a ten week course at my local parks and rec center. So far it's going quite well, the teacher is knowledgable and charming. I think I'll walk away with enough know how to get the ball rolling — hopefully I'll even feel inspired! The above photo is the pin cushion I hand sewed on the first class and the cocktail napkins I machine sewed yesterday which are still in progress.
