Since neither of us can draw, we took advantage of some large foam stencils that the teacher offered. You start by tracing your shape with a disappearing marker, the same kind that we use in quilting.
|Marion chose a flower.|
|I chose an octopus.|
|I attempted to draw some starfish but they didn't quite come out... luckily the ink will disappear!|
|Marion's scarf in progress.|
|My octopus in progress.|
|Marion's final flower. She opted to keep her background white.|
|I've got a heavy hand with paint and couldn't resist covering the entire surface of my scarf with color.|
I was energized by the class and I decided to do some sewing when I got home. I finished seven projects! Before you get jealous, it was five pillowcases and two boxy pouches, and all of them were in progress. But I was thrilled to spend some time in my Studio and to have something to show for it.
|Two Christmas penguin pillowcases for the divine Miss Linda B. and three pillowcases for our (mine and Marion's) Etsy Shop.|
|The infamous Boxy Pouch. Original size on the right and super size on the left (cut your fabric 10x12 instead of 8x10).|
Thanks for visiting!
Pugs and kisses,
