the night before the first class, i (tried to) reacquaint myself with my sewing machine. but it was like running into someone you've only talked to once, then you see them again and you're forced to make (awkward) conversation. it was uncomfortable and i treaded very lightly around the threading mechanism.
during the first class, i was still a little nervous, but in the end, i walked out with a little (lopsided) pincushion. i practiced some more the next day (after a trip to hancock fabric in murfreesboro, where once again i had to sort through 90% crap to find the 10% awesome that store has to offer).
friday night i made this pillow (this is a good tutorial), and after doing so, i felt WAY more confident on my sewing machine.
we made wallets during saturday's class, and i was excited to use this super adorable bear fabric i bought at textile fabrics (unlike hancock, textile is 90% awesome and i have a hard time restraining myself).
tonight, i used this strange fabric (butcher & the baker!) to make the mister a wallet:
next week, zipper pouches. then a tote bag & an a-line skirt. huzzah!
