and it was actually kind of fun. While I sewed, both kids worked on art projects in the room with me for 2 hours. And it gave me a taste of future “creative hangouts” with them, as they become more immersed in their own artwork and ideas. I loved it!
But why the 25 pillows?
They’re for the Design Camp class on Saturday.
Here’s a preview of the projects we’ll be making…
– Simple tote bags
– Stencil painted pillows.
I kept the projects simple since we only have 2 hours for the class, and the sewing-skill levels may be all over the map. I’m sure we’ll have fun with it.
So the past few days were spent prepping/gathering 10 yards of fabric….
….25 pillow shams, 40 yards of twill tape, 30 bottles of paint, 15 spools of thread, and lots of other odds and ends…
And miraculously it all fit in my suitcase, plus other fabrics, books, and goodies.
I haven’t opened the suitcase yet to see if any paints exploded. Fingers crossed on that.
But I did land in SLC last night, along with hundreds of Sundance Film Festival goers. Felt like I was back in LA (and I’ve never seen so many black puffy jackets and boots. What is it about Sundance and black coats? I brought my bright orange one).
Okay, I’m off to the conference.
Have a great Weekend!
Here are a few pics from the conference. Sewing in-action.
