You SEW girls!

On Tuesday night I taught my Simply Sewing 101 class, what a fun time we had. These ladies are getting better and better each time we get together. I'm really proud of all of them. A couple of my regulars were not there and we missed them alot. I hope they will be feeling better by next month. We did pick up a couple of new ladies and I think they had so much fun they will be back for more. We made self binding receiving blankets or table toppers. It's fun to see the different fabrics and combinations they come up with. Take a look at my girl's in action! Both Nyla and Amberlie did table toppers, they were so cute. And Shanna was doing receiving blankets for her friends babies.

Sewing wasn't going to be on Jan's list tonight, she was just too tired. She came to see how they were made, and then she was going to do them at home. Get rested up for the next class Jan 'cause we have something fun planned and you won't want to miss.

Did you know sewing and chit chatting can be done all at the same time? We do alot of laughing along with our sewing.

Here are some of the finished projects. Aunt Dale, Dondy, and Shanna. DeeAnn and Lou Ella are our new comers. Amberly, Me, Amblerlie and kids, and Nyla. Where was Erin and Angela? Hum, I think they were still sewing! Oh Caralissa must of snuck out before pictures.

After everyone finishes their project they get to put their name in for a drawing, this helps keep them motivated to finish the night of class. I made these cute little boxy pouches for the drawing that night. These were fast and simple, they work really well in your purse or diaper bag for the small stuff that gets lost in the bottom of your bag. They all loved them, and want to learn to make these in a future class.
I'm getting a little more comfortable with this new under taking. I'm having alot of fun with these ladies. They are such a joy to work with, just seeing the smiles on their faces when they have completed a project makes it all worth while.
