Posts Tagged ‘Hand Sewing’

On Saturday, September 13 I taught an intimate sewing class for Trade School LA at reDiscover Center. We went over invisible and visible mending. We hemmed skirts, sewed on buttons, practiced hand stitches, and even set up the foundation to machine sew our own reusable t-shirt bags! I will definitely be teaching this class again. Keep posted for dates. And feel free to let me know what you would like to learn and/or review.

There was a male sewing student, facilitator and photographer (we were all busy sewing that I forgot to take a picture of Richard!). All images by Richard Heaven.

It’s been a little over a year since I first made a felt bird. And it was beyond time for me to make another. Well really a flock. It may be a small flock, but like nature they are a multiplying and I know there will be more to show you in the future. I especially love the yellow one and have a special project in mind for him/her.

Here are a few images. Notice the tiny one. I will definitely making more tiny ones!
