Little did these students know when they arrived for class on Saturday morning that they were helping me with gifts for Christmas 2012.
Here are some of them in the
sweatshop classroom, hard at work. The best trick? They all brought their own fabric!
Sue was the first one done. She was thinking of this for a gift, but I think she may decide to keep it herself. (Wait, I thought I was getting it!!!)
Check out Phyllis! Black always makes a stunning background.
Susan got her center done, using civil war fabrics.
Judy D. had her center together, to be bordered with a dark brown and then the background fabric again. I think the print looks like an overhead view of a garden.
And Gale, bless her heart, made a smaller version after a mix-up with fabric amounts. But you have to admit it is too cute for words!
Can you believe they did all the cutting and sewing in six hours? It's a fun class and we had a blast from beginning to end. But...they refused to give me the finished tops when they left!!! So I am still at zero for 2012 gifts. Oh, well....
That's it for now. I have several things to share over the next few days. Stay tuned.
