Ahhh... Sewing class has started again! I have missed the challenge of trying to sew a straight line. And, oh, how one would think that curved lines would be a breeze. Not sew! ~grin~
Since Alicia was still suffering from pink eye yesterday, Justin joined me for sewing class. That was okay because the project for the day was a bit more suited to him. We made snowballs! (This was especially fitting since we have had very little snow this year.)
Our instructor had cut out circles of cheesecloth-- two layers thick. They were about 6-7 inches in diameter. We learned a new basting stitch that we did around the edge. This new stitch made it a breeze to gather the edges all together.
At that point, Justin had a ball filling each "bag" with flour. Once it was full, we wound the remaining string around the opening until it was all wrapped up.
Wa-laa... springtime snowballs!
Imagine Wayne's surprise when he got home from work and got pelted with "snowballs!"
Fun project. Fun day. And a new stitch learned. What could be finer?!?
