Every time I walk by my sewing table today I just have to smile.
I made these two zipper pouches in my class last night at The Workroom.
I have been wanting to take a class at The Workroom for YEARS! My friend Ludgera has been raving about them and I am certain she has taken all the classes. Every time I got their email announcing the next month of classes I would review my calendar. This month I was going no matter what. With an advance list of items needed, I came to the class prepared to use these fabrics from my stash.
After about an hour and a half, my first zippered pouch was done! The pattern was amazing. We actually worked on two pouches at the same time. Happily, my zipper sewing skills were good.
I used two different panels to create my first pouch. I was so impressed with how this turned out I couldn't wait to work on the second sample.
Each pouch is something I could use.
I wasn't done one sample before I was planning out the next 20 I'll be making.
I can easily change the pattern to create different sizes.
The best part? The pouches are lined!!! How super is that? I had no idea I could sew up something this pretty and professionally finished in one class.
I even had time to shop.....yes I know, I need more fabric like a hole in the head.....but who can resist fat quarters like this?
Finally, I am in love with the studio dog. Any place that creates an atmosphere that is good for humans and a dog is wonderful in my book. I hope to take a second class soon!
There are several sewing schools in Toronto. I am hoping to visit them all as a summer project.
