Library Tote Fabrics

First things first.
I started teaching sewing classes this semester.
I should have told you sooner.
I have no excuse.

Okay, so now that you’re in the know, the girls in my Monday class are starting on their library totes this next week. And I wanted to show you the fabrics they picked out.  Each student does a great job selecting fabrics.  They always amaze me with their design combinations.  My photography, on the other hand…

I think they are really excellent! And I just LOVE watching the process of them choosing. Pulling down this and that, comparing options, getting opinions of friends and moms. It’s really really fun. And I love seeing the prints they gravitate towards.

We all are like that, aren’t we? We have certain prints that we are drawn towards. A special way we go about deciding on the fabrics for our project. Some use a color to start with, other focus on a print they love first. Sometimes we have a project in mind first, but other times we love a fabric and just have to seek out the perfect project for it.  And sometimes, we have to force ourselves out of the comfort zone!

Anyway, these classes have been wonderful! And I need to do a better job of sharing the progress with you here. 🙂 (And get my class calendar up online! Seriously, has anyone figured out how to add more hours to the day yet?!?!?)

Alright, I have more to share with you this week. And get this…I’m even blogging AHEAD and scheduling the post. WOAH! Aren’t you impressed? (Don’t get used to it. Ha ha ha) Okay, one last picture of the girls with the pillowcases they made last month!

    You’ve got some girls with great eyes for design! Have fun ‘ya all. Wish my little gal could be there with you, but alas – she has to learn from mom!! Bless her heart, she says she wants to sew like me when she grows up 🙂
