congratulations on your lessons! Are you adding any fringe or trim to the shams too? Can't wait to see the final product!

I need to also take some sewing classes, i would be such a better person!

Good luck with your sewing class. I took a look at your new sewing machine and it looks like it would be fun to use. I bought a new machine three years ago and as of yet I have not used it. Shame on me!!!

I admire your gusto when it comes to learning how to sew. I have a brand new machine too and it scares me. My mother-in-law is a seamstress on top of it, so I have an added insecurity of being such a newbie on the thing. I'll be anxious to follow your progress for some inspiration!

Oh how fun, and what a beautiful pattern!

I have been wanting to take a sewing class too! Haven't found one yet. I did take it in HS I think (but that was 21 years ago) I could relearn on my own, but a class would be so fun! ;) Good Luck and can't wait to see the finished product. Love the fabric.

Oh please show the finished product. Your sewing teacher sounds great. May as well learn from someone who really knows what their doing.

sewing. the lost art! I know how to sew little, can hem my own jeans, curtains, make pillows and simple dresses. I think sewing is the most useful thing, especially for decorating! Make sure to check out Amy Butler's books / websites. I'm not into her fabrics, but her projects rock.

How fun! I can't wait to see the finished shams.

Congratulations on your sewing lessons! Can't wait to see the things you make:)

YAY for you!!

I just bought fabric to make my own euro pillows and shams, too. I can't wrap my brain around why they should cost so much more than other sizes of pillows.

Can't wait to see your finished project!!

The shams are going to be wonderful...and very special, because you made them yourself. I can't wait to see!

At 2:30 PM, Blogger Sadie Olive said...

Lol.. I bought a machine too, and I don't yet know how to sew. :) I need to find some classes, so I can learn. Yours sounds fun.

At 5:29 PM, Blogger Southern Sugar said...

oh, how wonderful! i would love to have a teacher like that. you can't beat experience. you'll probably learn alot more from her than just sewing. have fun!

Sewing is like potato chips...once you start you can't stop!
Enjoy the classes!

At 8:06 PM, Blogger Libby said...

Oh, I would love to take a class like your sewing class! Can't wait to see your work in progress. :)

At 3:20 AM, Blogger Lallee said...

What a great thing to do. I'm looking forward to seeing your shams. Love the fabric!

Sounds like so much fun! Some day I need to take a class, too, because sewing frustrates me so now, hehe.

At 4:42 AM, Blogger Jen @ The Cottage Nest said...

I'm glad you are enjoying your classes and I hope you are inspired to sew many beautiful things.

Good luck with the classes. There is a bit of math involved, but the most difficulty I have had with sewing is understanding directions on the patterns. Sometimes they just don't make a lot of sense. Let us know how the shams turn out. Love your blog. You have great style. I added you to my blog list, if you don't mind.

I love your blue and white too. You have a great knack for decorating and I find that inspiring. Where did you get your pedestal coffee table..I'm in the market for one.

I would love to be able to sew a straight line!

At 6:22 PM, Blogger ~~Mikki Jo said...

Good for you! Goodluck and it sounds like your having a wonderful time!

At 1:41 PM, Blogger HeatherJ said...

Sewing does involve math sometimes, but it's usually not that bad. My challenge usually is understanding what the directions on patterns mean. I'm sewing a slipcover and I have had to ponder what I'm doing now and then.
