Sewing on the brain

Last night I had a dream I was a contestant on Project Runway. Actually, it was kind of a nightmare even though I was chosen as someone who was "safe." We were making hats out of an article of clothing we owned. Everyone did a terrible job, including Heidi Klum, who was also a contestant.

I mentioned I have been teaching a sewing class. I think more people should learn to sew. I want to teach an adult class too. Here are some shots of a few of my lovely students with their first projects. In case you can't tell, they made their headbands. And they did a great job!




Also, I have decided to sew myself something this week. Stay tuned for the finished product!

How nice Jamie! You are bringing up a new generation of sewers! It's good since schools don't teach it any more. Girls should at least know how to use a machine.
