If you have never been to one of these schools, let me just say, if you have the chance to come, don't miss it! I will warn you though, they can be addicting.
I thought I would share a few pictures of my class projects.
Pinwheels & Pockets
2 day class
The colorful Square Yoke Top features halo sleeves, Whimsy Pinwheel flowers and cute hem flounces. The pants are my Heirloom Cargo Capri from the More Sewing from Whimsy book, trimmed to match the top.
Pinwheels shown here are made from the Hex-A-Wheel, as in a 6 sided hexagon, so the pinwheels will have 6 points or petals. So the Pent-A-Wheel will make 5 point/petal pinwheels.
Optional yoke trims feature pinwheels that are made to look like pinwheel toys instead of flowers.
Creating Bullion Whimsies
3 hour evening class
The yoke features bubbly fish stitched in my favorite hand embroidery stitch - BULLIONS!! Stitched using DMC cotton floss.
Trim with ruffles and twisted rickrack. If you prefer machine embroidery, this yoke is the prfect place to showcase a pretty motif.
