Learn To Sew: Farmer's Market Tote Bag Class

Have you been lurking, thinking that you might want to learn to sew? Do you have a machine sitting around, and you aren't even sure if it works? Join class on Sunday for the Learn To Sew: Farmer's Market Tote. I will look at your machine and make sure it works. If it doesn't, you will have time to get the machine serviced before the second week of class, which is when we start sewing!

In the first class we will work on cutting out the bag from the pattern and fusing the iron-on interfacing. Does interfacing fascinate and frighten you? Come learn the little tricks to make your interfacing look fantastic!

Class meets three times: Sundays April 11th, 18th, and 25th.

Bias cut camisole and tap shorts

Sign up now for the Sumptuous Knit Top Class at Modern Domestic!
Class starts tomorrow, April 6th!
If you've finished any other sewing project, you are ready to sew knits!

And once you take the knit class, you can sew the knit camisole, which is taught in the same class as this bias cut camisole (the similarities between knits and bias cut wovens might surprise you!)

This camisole is made from a lovely cotton lawn that I got over at Fabric Depot last week. The trim is stretch lace.

The cami and the tap shorts are cut on the bias.

The back of both.

Soft enough to sleep in.
Pretty enough to wear under a light robe when you have coffee on the veranda with your sweetie.

Class starts May 16th.
