Courses at the Swedish Quilters Associations annual meeting!

I had the great honour of being invited as a teacher during Rikstäcket's annual meeting this year. It was a lovely event held in Kalmar, Sweden. I held two classes, one 6 hour class for the Denver Double Zip Bag spread over Friday and Saturday, and one 6 hour class for my Bring the Basics Bag on the Sunday. We had so much fun! We laughed so much and so many stunning bags where born!

This photo really sums up the whole weekend, we had such a WONDERFUL time!

Me explaining how to make the zipper pocket for the Bring the Basics Bag, making sure we're following along in the pattern so it's easier to remember when one gets home:

A pretty Denver to be during construction.

More hard working students.
A few of the pretty Denver Double Zip Bags that where made:

Therese and Tiina with their lovely Denver Double Zip Bags, two of my amazing students who's been to one of my classes before, that's the best one can hope for right, that one's students return? =)

This is how happy one can be after making a brand new handbag for oneself! Beaming Charlotte with her beautifully matching Denver!

Here's a few of the gorgeous Sunday's Bring the Basics Bag's that where made, this pattern will be re-released in a few days with the bag in 2 sizes and a brand new description and pattern!

Tova Has Finished Elementary School!

My sewing student Tova, who's become a really talented little seamstress during our 3 years together is finished with elementary school. But sadly for me, this means that our sewing classes also have ended. I couldn't be prouder of her and we've learned so much together!

She finished with a bang and we made a really cool sweater for her and of course the final thing we made for her class was a sami bracelet. =)

The Jacket

Tovas super cool jacket, made from this Simplicity Pattern: 1940 Misses' Jackets Designed with Love By Sara :

We decided to skip the shoulder decorations as we felt it would be too much, and I'm really happy with the outcome. Look at those pretty seams! I couldn't possibly be prouder of her work! =D

Sami Bracelet

 Then she also made a sami bracelet which turned out beautiful!

Needless to say, she got the top grade, an A in her sewing class! I couldn't be prouder Tova, keep on creating! <3

My fantastic student!

My friends daughter is being home schooled and I'm her sewing teacher. She'd never touched a sewing machine when we started this fall and I just had to brag a little about her because she's such a fantastic student! We have so much fun during our lessons and she's quick to learn and to my big delight equally picky about stuff as as I am.

Our latest assignment was embroidery (her initials) and then preferably incorporating the embroidery in something sewn. So we made a fabric case for her pencils and pens for school. We wanted to shine a little so she made it sort of triangular with lining, zipper and everything, really impressive work!

Embroidering for her first time ever, cross stitches in the shape of her initials, her stitches are so neat!

Since she's attending my "classes", we're cutting the fabric when possible, not clipping with scissors =) Also, since she like me is a night owl, this particular class was taking place about two at night, hence the dark pictures.

Adding the embroidery to the front of the case, I just love how she choose a green text on the grey main fabric and coordinated the lining fabric with the embroidery.

And the result, one super luxurious pencil case!

She's just the best student!  Next up in our classes are knitting and soft toy from stretch fabric, we'll be making a sock monkey, stay tuned =)
