|Saturday -We had a great time in this class talking about social media, smart phones, the quilts that we make, blogging, while we were making the signs below - The "social" sewing circle.
|Here is one of the signs that a student in the class made. Each student could choose the colors/fabrics that were cut out into letters and pre-fused. They ironed them onto wool blended felt and hand sewed the letters and decorative pieces into place.
