I am so excited. In just three weeks I am headed to the Sewing Summit. Although I was at first disappointed when I did not get my first choices of classes, I am feeling better now. I still do not have what I want but it seems like I will be able to learn a ton at the after hour sessions. I am bringing fabric for every class I wanted to take just in case I have the opportunity to get my hands on some of the teachers. The only fabric I did not buy and prep is the fabric for te Maxi skirt. I think that I could probably learn from someone and then come home and make one if I really want one.
I am currently trying to get everything prepared and make a few more things before I leave.
I did get most of the fabric cut this week for the classes, a badge made, and a pouch started. I am still working on quilting a Christmas present for my step mother.
Here is my badge. I wanted to do it in vintage since I have fallen in love with vintage sheets.
I also wanted to show you the great mug rug and sweet little pouches I received this week in Flickr swaps.
JennygoLightly from Flickr made me the two little pouches to go with my purse I made this summer in the handstitched class.
Natalie made me this awesome mug rug to match my house!
Here is the pouch I will be bringing to swap. I drafted my own pattern using this tutorial. I am still getting the hang of the zipper tabs... I love this fabric and thought it would be fun to enter into the swap, since everyone is so into text fabric these days.
