Last year, when I participated in a yarn crawl, I discovered Fabric Bliss, an adorable yarn and fabric store located in the Santa Fe Arts District in Denver.
I was only interested in Fabric Bliss' yarn back then, but now that I have a budding interest in sewing I decided to pop in and check out their fabric and their sewing classes. I'm so glad that I did!
I ended up signing up for their Intro to Sewing class and making the reversible tote bag pictured above. Isn't it awesome? It's so perfect for toting around my knitting projects.
I seriously loved every part of the class. I loved picking out my fabric because there were so many fun prints to choose from. I loved learning how to wind the bobbin and thread the machine so that I can be an independent sewist who knows how to do that sort of thing. I loved our teacher, Jackie, who was patient and nice and explained everything clearly. And I loved all my classmates who were just as eager and nervous as I was. Here we all are with our finished bags:
I had such a great time at this class and I learned so much that I can't wait to sign up for another one. I'm thinking about doing the Hem your Pants class because pants never fit me or maybe the Zippers Made Easy class so that I can start sewing more serious things like dresses.
If you could take a sewing class, which one would it be?
I still can't get over the fact that I made such a professional looking bag. It even has gussets! And I know what gussets are now! Nailing it.
