Make and Take

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. Smile

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.
