I have been lax in posting, as this happened almost a month ago now. It's amazing how fast the time goes by nowadays! I work less at my job, but I feel like I'm just as busy, even when the baby sleeps most of the day.
I need to schedule another sewing night as there were a few friends who weren't able to make it. Hmmm, when's a good night for you?
Everyone went home with a brand new, gorgeous shopping bag and a little more sewing knowledge. One of the girls even came with having never sewn before in her life and she did a fabulous job!
(She also discovered that her baby fit perfectly in her bag...why didn't I think of that!?)
We also got a quick tutorial on how to make Baby Legs--which we were super excited about! I've been keeping a lookout for inexpensive knee-high socks. It's a very easy, 10 minute project and keeps your baby's legs nice and toasty.
(Come to think of it, I have a pair that I was just about to throw away because they have holes in the toes...Baby Legs!)
It was a great night of food, friends, fun & sewing! I love setting up a couple extra tables in my dining room, pulling out the extension cords, my boxes of thread and accessories, piling snacks, wine and juice on the buffet table and enjoying a project with friends.
It made me think I would really enjoy teaching a sewing class. I wonder how I would set something like that up?
Thanks to everyone who came and participated! I had a blast and I hope you did too!
How's next month looking for you? I could have some working on a grocery bag and come up with another project as well...
Just a quick note to keep on the look out. I know you all are wanting one of these great bags--they are amazing to use for shopping as you can fit tons in them and they will last a very long time without breaking.
I'm going to be making a bunch of them next week and hosting a giveaway so be sure to stay tuned!
