One of my favorite aspects of teaching classes in my home is adding all the little details that make it extra special. Here are pics of previous SEW LOVELY classes, just to give you a taste.

We begin the class with the basics–tools, sewing terms, reading a pattern.

All three of the projects we do build on one another, beginning with simple straight seams.  We go through the projects together, helping you with issues right along side you.

The rice pillow project is a perfect start. We also make a cover to go over it. You can take these skills and pattern home and alter it to cover any throw pillow in the world.

We tackle a small tote bag next. This helps you master lining bags, different handles, etc. This project can also be taken home and reproduces on many, many levels. By adjusting the size and materials, you can make book bags, shopping bags, purses and more.

The last project is a half apron. You learn how to sew with bias tape, create an inverted pleat, buttonhole and pocket.
