A sewing class ??
Yes, it's true I did sign up for a sewing
class even with my very limited sewing skills I was able to produce this.
I have been eyeing up this class since the beginning of December but was not sure whether or not I could do it as really my sewing skills are less than beginner level. I kept looking though at the class
description and saw some people who are teachers in the art world were taking this class just go on and on about how great it was. Finally I contacted the teacher of the class Mary Ann Moss and got some great encouragement. She sent me to someone else's blog who claimed to have the same kind of sewing skills as me and she did a great job making her journal. So I bit the bullet and signed up. As I do not sew I really did not have any fabric scraps so went out and got some fabrics I liked and started the project.
So this is the journal ready to be filled. I did have a few
little mistakes along the way but I am lucky that my
husband can sew better than me and came and helped
me and encouraged me to continue.
I have now got to make the inside pages for it and then
sew those in, it may take a while as I have to watch more
of the great video's that Mary put together for this class.
If you want more information on it go to Mary's blog and
look on the right side of the screen for "Remains of the
If you have lots of scrap papers, fabrics, trims, ephemera
etc then this journal is for you. From what I have seen in
our Flickr group the rest of this project promises to be fun
as we get to use up all of those scraps to assemble the journal.
