Just look at my beautiful hat!  I love everything about it; probably because I made every decision even down to the little curve underneath the button.  This hat class was one of the best classes I have ever taken.  I can’t begin to give it the justice it deserves or recommend it enough.  Being able to design and bring to fruition my own hat was incredible.  My friend designed a completely different hat...

Yesterday I started a sewing class offered through PCC.  I have a great sewing machine, but I don’t know how to use it well.  So when my friends said they were going to take a sewing class, I jumped at the chance to take it with them.  I brought my machine with me since this is the beast I need to tame.  The first class was all about learning the different parts of your machine, threading it and sewing...

My first hat class last Tuesday was amazing.  My friend and I are the only two people in the class.  It’s really great to have so much one on one time with our instructor.  The class is about designing hats.  After a bit of talk about what our possibilities were, we jumped into figuring out how we want our hat.  Since there are only two of us in the class, I figured this was the perfect time to tackle...

This weekend I was going to spend lots of time cleaning my art room.  But, I was easily distracted and instead I started a new embroidery project.  I found this image on the web, printed it out, taped it to my sliding glass door and traced the image onto my fabric.  I love the freedom of embroidery.  You can use pretty much any image you can find.  This will be done mostly in a deep red with a few...

When my oldest friend’s baby turned one year’s old, I knew I wanted to do something special for him.  I embroidered his name and birthday to commemorate his birth.  This is probably the biggest embroidery project I have done to date.  It’s about 7 inches by 14 inches total.  I really liked how it turned out. I found this flower image on the web.  I put a flower on each side of his last...
