Elizabeth is mentoring this young girl in the art of sewing. Here she is proudly displaying a very fancy sleep mask and her1st project the apron with a personal and unique pocket design.
It's a good feeling isn't it to see the smile that only making something yourself can bring. Good job Elizabeth for sharing your skills with someone else.
Check the schools where you live to see if they also offer a mentoring program. You too could be sharing your sewing skills with an interested youth. 4-H also provides the opportunity for volunteering to teach sewing.
Seeing as how Paula works out everyday I can only imagine how much of a work out these pants will get.
She is back from LA and looking forward to sharing her new fabric purchases with us. That will be something else to look forward to.
The skirt appears to be a linen color here, but its actually a silvery grey. It has some lovely seaming to it which is reminiscent of a 30's bias gown, and its that seaming which provides the gracful sweep to the skirt. We did have to alter the length of this skirt which was a bit tricky because of the circular shape of the pattern piece, but it looks like it turned out nicely.
Peg is headed off to Daytona for her annual trip. She made this bag for her knitting projects...its quite the satchel! She modified an existing pattern adding the zippered closure, the dowls at the top, and the exteriour pocket. She free motion quilted the canvas
Great work to one and all!!
Saturday's class is sure to provide more inspiration and hopefully some additional pictures.
