MAKING SWEATPEA PODS AND CLASS CHANGE

During Craft Day at the Attic Window Quilt Shop, Diana (above) told us not to throw away the half square triangles left over from when we made our Bendy Bag.  She told us we could use those triangles to make the little Sweatpea Pods.  Since Rosa and I didn't have time to make those during Craft day, Diana graciously said she would show us how during Happy Scrappers.  We were grateful and traveled through our first snow to make it to the shop on Saturday.
Above, Rosa shows us her two SweatPea Pods that she made that day.
 Diana worked right along with us and above she shows us the four pods that she made.
Above are the Pods that I made.  They are small but will be great for traveling.  I like how you can fit a spool of thread and bobbin into the Pod.  The other one will be filled with Candy nutritious things for my trip.   What is even more important, they were basically free since they were made of left over fabric which would have probably been tossed.  We did have to buy one zipper and an extra pull, but that was practically nothing.  What a fun project.  I bet little kids would find a use for them too.  You can get the pattern at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.
A special thank you to Diana for her excellent teaching.  BTW, Diana's Ornament Placemat Make It Take It class which was scheduled for Monday, Dec. 11, has been moved to Thursday, Dec. 14th.  So you still have time to make this placemat/table topper/wall hanging.  Call the shop to register.

HAVE YOU TRIED THIS ORNAMENT?

 Melanie and 
Lois joined me last Wednesday in Marilyn's Ornament Class at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Don't their ornaments look great!
 These ornaments were fun to make, but there was a lot of sewing and cutting involved.
 And some turning and sewing.
 And some folding and sewing.
And more folding and sewing.  All in all, it was a fun class and I loved the ornaments we made.
This is the ornament I made.
Marilyn is such a great teacher and made the class so much fun that I had make another one when I got home.  The pattern is Holiday Stars by Poor House Quilt Designs.  It includes directions for both a 6 and 8 point stars for decorating gifts and your house.  You can get it at the Attic Windows Quilt Shop.

DON'T FORGET: Chris has another Make It Take It class on Friday, Dec. 8th.  Join her in using your 60 deg. ruler to make a Christmas Table runner and Table topper.
