Today was a Make and Take class at Tiny Stitches. We had seven wonderful women who came to the shop at 9 am to spend the day making small projects that are perfect for gifts. We started the morning with bagels and cream cheese – also coffee. Our first project was a baked potato bag. You know, the kind you put potatoes in for the microwave. I know there are a lot of patterns out there, but this is one I made up. We have pre-quilted potato fabric in the shop. It even has Warm Tater batting in it. A couple of hems, a couple of seams and the bags were made.
Next we made a rice bag, the type you heat in the microwave and put around your neck. This was made from a commercial pattern and involved flying geese.
The next project was a pet screen zipper bag. Mary made some bling for the zipper pull for everyone.
After the zipper bag, we had lunch. I brought potato soup in the crock pot and Mary brought quiche and salad. Yummy lunch!
Mary then taught a scissor case, made from a quilt block. This project took a little more time since the block had to be quilted and bound before turning it into the scissor holder.
After this we had dessert/snack. I made brownies and we had them with ice cream, hot fudge and whipped cream – definitely not the low cal special.
The last project was hexagon pot holders. They are a variation of the table topper, using Insul-Brite and only two fabric strips.
Here is a photo of all the projects.
All in all, it was a wonderful day.
