How lucky am I? Two lovely classes in one week. This one I had been looking forward to for some time, and was one I organised for the shop where I work. Our wonderful tutor today was Natalie Bird from The Birdhouse - a gorgeous, generous lady and an amazing designer and teacher. I didn't want the day to end. Here's our group - many of them holding their finished project (not me alas).
A display of Natalie's beautiful work.
Our project was a beautiful zippered sewing purse big enough to hold fabric scissors, rotary cutter, etc and a pincushion to match. Now I am not one for zips but Natalie's method was easy peasy.
My stitchery front is nearly done.
Of course, it goes without saying I had to purchase a couple of Natalie's new patterns - thought they would make great gifts. Stitch n' Chat is a small zippered purse big enough to hold needles, thread and a small pair of embroidery scissors. Good value as this pattern also includes a very cute drawstring bag to hold your coffee mug. The other pattern is holder for all those necessary sewing bits and pieces and folds into three to purse size.
