I made a pillow!
My last sewing class was last night. And holy cow! It’s a pillow, bitches!
And not just a lame, sew two pieces of fabric together pillow—although that would have been a pretty amazing feat 4 weeks ago—but a pillow with a ZIPPER and PIPING.
And a zipper hidden behind the flap.
I gotta say, if you live in Atlanta and want to learn how to use a freaking sewing machine I highly recommend the classes at Whipstitch. They aren’t cheap, but I loved our rad teacher Theresa and I learned so much over 4 weeks. Things I never would have figured out with online tutorials alone. But, I’m also a class person. I like doing things in a group and with someone to answer my questions, fix my problems, tell me I’m pretty, etc.
Here’s the class with our finished pillow cases.
And some close ups of the fab creations.
Another thing I dorkily liked was the Knitting Circle aspect of things. Chatting, gossipping, talking about reality TV and 50 Shades of Grey. (Haven’t read it. Yet.)
So that was sewing class! I’m already thinking of what to take next.
