I think the classes are priced so reasonably so you can spend your money on the tools needed to create the custom patterns.
I am not complaining I think everything was very reasonably priced. This is what I purchased just the rulers and pattern paper. But we were given an order sheet and I would like to order the two sewing attachments that were demonstrated. If you have the opportunity to attend one of these classes I HIGHLY recommend it. Carolyn had a post awhile ago where she said she had attended a 2 1/2 hour class years ago that forever changed the way she fit her patterns, I wonder if this is the same class because I know it has changed the way I will sew from now on, I wish I had gone 20 years ago. I'm going to try the make the pants pattern first, I'll let you know how it goes but I really think this was the best $7.00 I've ever spent. You can order the DVD and tools from the website I started watching the DVD, (it's the same guy but he's about 15 years younger) but didn't finish it, it looks like it's the seminar so you could just order the DVD and then decide what tools you want to purchase.
It was funny in the seminar the presenter asked when was the last time you had fun sewing and I answered last night because I stayed up late making this for my little protege. I wanted to make her, her own crochet bag to keep her hooks and projects.
This is the crochet hook case I made. The outside is more of that fake leather that I've had forever, I use to have leather furniture and I covered those cushions more times than I care to remember but I still have a lot of that fabric left. It's what I used to cover my sewing table. Initially I tried to use a snap for the closure but the fabric was too thick so I went with plan B and used velcro, and when closed the snap adds a little decoration.
Here's everything that I put in it, I made this hat and scarf last year and it's for a young girl, didn't give it away at Christmas so I'm going to give it to her, she was very concerned that she wouldn't have her's finished before Christmas. I just printed a copy of basic how to crochet instructions so she can practice at home and wouldn't you know the game was rained out so I will give it to her at Tuesday's practice.
I'm off to make my pants pattern, I might wait until tomorrow and just sew the blouses I have cut out, whatever I decide to do, you'll see it here soon after.
Almost forgot KnittingMachineQueen nominated me for the Attitude of Gratitude Award. Thank you so much, I will post the award and my nominations tomorrow, hopefully with some sewing pics.
