Another Drawstring Bag.

Another proud student with her drawstring bag.  This little project is proving to be an fun and very useful little bag!


The students pick out their own fabrics from a variety of pre-cuts and they seem to enjoy that as much (or more) than sewing the bag! More workshops to come in the future!



More Finished Aprons, Drawstring Bag Workshop, A Quilt to Donate and 100 Hexagons.

There has been so much going on lately in my sewing room that I really haven’t had much time to post.  Besides, I can hardly hear myself think in here over the hum of the sewing machines, which is a very good thing in my world.  I have a few things to share today.  First off my Friday night girls finished their aprons.  They of course were very proud and didn’t mind posing for the camera.  They did an awesome job!



Also, I held a Drawstring Bag workshop on Saturday that went really well (other than me hitting my thumb with the hammer, don’t ask!)



I also finished a quilt that has been sitting in my cedar chest waiting for binding for quite some time and it is finally complete.  I am going to donate it to the girls school for a fundraiser this month.  Thanks for helping me finish that one up mom!



I also finished piecing my 100 hexagons for my Modernology quilt that I ordered from Hawthorne Threads.  I got it as a kit with the pattern and Pat Bravo fabrics which are my new favorite fabrics!  Now I just have to border each block and put my 100 hexagons together!


I will keep you posted on my progress with that quilt.  I am already brainstorming how to quilt it!
