Like most of us that love to sew, many of my sewing projects are made for others (or for shop samples), but occasionally I get the urge to have a party in my sewing room and I'm the guest of honor. Something else that I rarely do is to take a class. And I love learning new things. So when Sarah Overton offered a weaving class at my shop I clocked out and sat in!
So everyone in class finished successfully with Sarah's instruction using the Wefty Needle from Tara Curtis. What a great tool this is! Weaving has become very popular, and with lots of different patterns offered by Tara, the results can leave you with a plethera of woven chunks to sew into just about any project you can dream up. Now we just needed to decide what we wanted to do with our beautiful woven masterpieces! I decided on the Prima Diva Wallet pattern from Sew Many Creations. Sarah had made this bag and I just loved how it looked both practical and gorgeous! I found the pattern directions well written, with plenty of extra tips for guaranteed success.
The inside pockets were made using a variety of Art Gallery Fabrics, including a new print from Pat Bravo's line, Heartland. Just look at all those pockets! I count 9 in all, with 12 more sized for credit cards! I can fit my cell phone, lipsticks, etc. all in this one handy little bag.
