mother daughter sewing classes

Ever since I taught the little group of girls how to sew by hand, their Moms and some others, began asking me to teach them to sew. They have also asked to do a sewing class with their daughters. Such a sweet idea.

The girls at The Tin Thimble were up for the idea. And we have set dates for three classes. All on a Sunday. March 27, April 3, and April 10 from 1-3. By then, there should be gorgeous spring days.
I wanted to share with you here two of the projects I have finished already. The first class we will be making a reversible placemat and a napkin. This great fabric I bought at the Tin Thimble and had enough to make extra napkins for my home!

For the second class I used a new technique for creating pillowcases. I've heard that you will spend more time picking out the fabric then sewing up the actual pillowcase. And once I made it for myself, I believe it!

The third class will be a reversible bag. Which is so fun and easy. Perfect for taking your books home and back to the library. This is the project that I am sewing up today. So you will have to wait to see the pictures. But each class is perfect for the beginning sewer. So I hope to see some new faces in there!

I also wanted to mention The Vintage Sheet blog. You must visit them each day of March. She is having a daily giveaway. And if you love vintage and the fresh pretty patterns of vintage linens, be sure to stop by.

What a great idea! I wish I had something like that here in my town. My daughter would love it and mommy needs a refresher course.
