Tuesday sewing class

Tuesday, May 05, 2009

Every Tuesday I have a sewing class for a few little girls, it is so much fun and it reminds me how glad I am that my mother taught me how to sew. As a child being able to sew meant being able to make my own clothes, first for my dolls, then for me, it also meant I could sew gifts for my family. I suspect there were more failures than successes, the fun was in the process.

This week with Mother's Day fast upon us, we are making linen hand-towels with appliqued spots of them. Inspiration was taken from Cath Kidston's MAKE book which is bursting with great ideas for beginner sewers.
