And I swear it might have been the most satisfying thing I’ve done in a long while. My friend Deja and I took a class at The Urban Craft Center in Santa Monica (right behind the Peets on Main Street) and it was so fun.
Adding to the list of things I need…
New sewing machine that does fancy stitches with the twist of a knob. I’m pretty sure I was more excited about our test stitches than the final product.
I made a pillow. Wheeeeee! I think I will make pillows for everyone for Christmas this year. Forget about jam and other canned goodies. 2009 is the year of the pillow. Unless I learn to make something else in the next few months.
Also, even if you are a proficient seamstress, they give classes in every sort of craft you can imagine. And they have a great little supply shop that sells all sorts of essentials and really cute fabric.
I even bought a few pieces. For “research” as I’m calling it. Poor Brock. He is such a good sport.
