Guess where I'm going today?

After asking the question 'what do I do now' once I'd bought the Amy Butler 'In Stitches' book, it dawned on me that it might be a good idea to see if I could find a sewing class to take! There just so happens to be a sewing shop about 15 minutes from me. I used to walk past it every week when I took Kristen to Little Gym and I would head to Barnes and Noble to browse around for an hour while she played. I never thought much about it, cos I never really sew, and I never really enjoy sewing when I do try it. That's because I've never really been taught how to.

I'm excited today because I signed up for a sewing class last week (another spur of the moment thing) and it so happens the class is today AND for 6 lovely long hours! Lunch is even provided. And guess what they will be making today (or I will be making) pajama pants! Isn't that a nice coincidence because that is what I was going to try and make from the Amy Butler book.

I will update you all tomorrow on how the day went. And ya never know, I may be modeling some very cool lounge pants ;-)

Oh, and on a knitting note, I've been speeding along with Jaden and nearly finished the front. Just two short sleeves to go and I'll have something else to model too!

I hope you get on well today Denise, how serendipitdatious for it to be making jim jam bottoms when that's what you wanted to make!
I looked at AB fabric on ebay, as I'd not heard of her or her fabrics before, very, very nice. :O)

Hope you enjoyed your sewing day. I've never been able to get on with sewing machines, I always get in a tangle. That's why I do it by hand, for me it's easier!

Oh fab! Hope you enjoyed your day. I think you were just meant to sew this week. It must be fate for you to have those pyjamas. :)

Now Denise, there is a big difference between pajamas and "lounge" pants. I have completely convinced my children of this, and they no longer think a thing of their mother hanging out all day in her "lounge pants." ;-)

Can't wait to see your new bottoms!

That is very cool. You are so fortunate to have a sewing shop offering classes so convenient to you! I think you were wise to take the time to learn properly. It will make all the different to your enjoyment and the quality of your projects.
