These are the pictures of items brought to our last 3 meetings. Pictures can not show all the detail of their beautiful work. You do see several of the mystery crochet afghans that were worked on this past year. 2017 we will bring back every other month classes. Look for the blog post for the classes to see if there is one you can’t wait to do.

We had our meeting last night and everyone was working on a different type of project. Crochet, plastic canvas, quilting, drawing and hairpin lace. Though I did not do much hairpin lacing during the meeting and did not take a picture of what I was working on.

This first group of pictures are from 2014

I’ve decided to make mine reversible so I picked 2 different fabrics that go with my bias tape and bought a little extra so I could put pockets on both sides.

The pattern has been decided: Simplicity 4282 E

The one in the middle

The pattern calls for 1 1/8 yards of 45″ fabric, but I’m going to get 1 1/2 yards because I want more pockets and I think I’m going to get 2 different fabric (1 1/2 yards each) so I can make it reversible. It also calls for 3 1/2 yard of 1/4″ wide Double Fold Bias Tape. That will have to be a coordinating color that works with both my fabrics for me. The pattern also calls for 3/8 yard of 1″ wide flat eyelet. Not sure I’m going to do that until after I pick out the fabric I’m going to use.

The back of the pattern shows what the apron looks like laying flat:

Remember you will be bringing in your sewing machine for that class. So please practice using it before then. Bring whatever thread you want to sew with along with your fabric, bias tape, scissors, etc.

It will be exciting to see what fabric everyone brings and how the same pattern will look different on each of us.
