Back to School!

On Friday I had the opportunity to go back to school, sort of! Mrs. Bird from the Springville Jr. High asked if I would come show some of her sewing classes the fabric flower that I have been making. The girls made me feel very welcome. Being there took me back to my Jr. High sewing days. This is where my love for sewing started, I was the same age of these girls. I have learned so much more since then but every bit of basic sewing I use everyday I owe to a wonderful teacher, Mrs. Manwarring. These girls had alot of fun learning something new and making something that they can use to finish the look of the projects they are completing. Here are some ways to use the fabric flower. How 'bout flip flops, the girl's loved this idea and now that spring is on it's way they were jumping up and down for some flip flop weather. By the way, Shopko has all of their flip flops buy one get one free right now, this would be a good time to stock up.
I've used this flower on baby headbands, bags, made them into pins, hair clips, hats. The fabric flower seems to be all the rage right now, you see them everywhere. And there is such a variety of patterns out there. Go wild with flowers, use your imagination.

Now let's get started, should we?

Just about finished, that's it I think you've go it.

Me and my fellow classmates with their finished flowers, I bet the other students in the school were wondering where all these lovely blossoms came from.
