Sewing Card Class

There is just something about sewing and everything sewing related that gets me excited.  So I've decided to teach a class using sewing icons as our theme next Friday afternoon at China Phoenix 2. 

Besides making beautiful cards, I will teach you how to take an old pattern and turn it into a fabulous flower using a Tim Holtz die!  I have so many old patterns that I keep hanging onto.  How can you through them away?  I made clothes for my children out of them!!  Then there are the patterns that were purchased for .99 each but never used. Well, these patterns are out of hiding and getting a new life that I can feel great about! Feel free to bring your old patterns and die cut away at class.

I wish they really did make dress forms with hips like this Tim Holtz image.  Maybe I would have bought one......

This sentiment is FAB!!

Here is our third and final card that we will make.

I just finished making this card.  It took forever for it to come together, but now I love it!  This pad of Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl paper has been calling to me to get pulled out and used.  We will make a pleated, paper ruffle as we construct this card!.  Something about folding and messing around with beautiful paper......felt really good.  Look out!!  I may be obsessing with this technique in days to come.

Class will be next Friday afternoon from 1-4p.m. Hope to see you there!!
