Studio Happenings!

24 Oct

Last week in the studio was so much fun!

Several worry pets made their appearance!

We had a cross stitch finish and huge progress on another project by a different student!

And a really fun and creative tote bag for a special mom made by this student.  This bag has so many extra details!!  Button eyes, a mouth with lips that is actually a pocket (things like keys can be placed in the mouth and go in the pocket that’s attached), “MOM” labeling, and there is also a cup holder inside for his mom’s coffee or water.  What a thoughtful and uber creative finish!!

Third Week Camp Highlights

1 Jul

We are currently entering out 5th week of camp!! I am really behind on the blogging front, but we are having a fantastic time at camp!  Here are some of the highlights from sewing camp during week three:

There were lots of tote bags made.  Each one turned out so well!

Lots and lots of pillows were made.  Some were quilted and some had embroidery on them.

Stuffed animals, pillow cases, and freeform dolls with their own set of clothes!

This sewing camp decided they wanted to weave so we set up the looms for them!!  What a fun time we had!  Lots of scarves, table runners and even a pair of wrist warmers!

Head bands and scrunchies!

And so much more!!  Our sewing camps are so much more than just sewing.  They are about exploration, friendship and fun!

A zippered pouch start and finish!

Monday Studio Time

15 May

Monday was a fantastic day in the studio!!  Our students asked to listen to the soundtrack from “High School Musical” so we were rockin’ out to that.  I couldn’t believe how sweet it was to hear them all singing along as we worked on our projects!


We finished a colorful panda.

After finishing the panda, this student started a pillow as an end-of-year teacher’s gift.


Ooops! A little bit of ripping out stitches going on here. No worries!! After ripping, she almost finished her jammie pants!

There was also weaving, cutting out a new project, hand sewing and machine sewing happening in the studio.  WHEW!!  So much done in one class!

Tuesday Adult Class

I can’t wait for next week – finished projects and new starts!
