I had three classes resume this week - this term, I have four classes all following the same programme and it is a zakka inspired Sew A Long. I so enjoyed taking part in the first online Zakka SAL last summer that it sowed the seeds of this plan for my classes.
There will be eight projects taking everyone up to Christmas (sorry, the C word again).
We started off simply with a Stitch and Flip mug mat - although some of the projects might at first seem simple, I am hoping most of the ladies will pick up tips, tricks & techniques along the way. After just one project lots of ladies are saying how good it feels to make something small and to take it home finished.
I didn't capture everything but did snap a few samples.........
I also managed a little sewing for myself - I did this week's project from Ayumi's Patchwork Please SAL. I hadn't tried a zipped pouch like this before with the zip going round the bend and it was ok, I didn't end up going round the bend - the instructions were straightforward and I am pretty pleased with the result.
The contrast fabric was a textured plain which tends to fray a bit so I did stabilise it with some interfacing.
Summer continued here right up to yesterday. But last night the temperature took a dip and I reckon we might have slipped into Autumn.....ah well, I am rather fond of Autumn.
