The Future's So Bright...

It's Spring Break and Sewing Club is ready for some sunshine.  What better way to prepare than to make a simple Eye-See-You Case from Sewing School?  For a more individualized version, we forwent the little glasses applique shown in the book for stick on felt shapes and fabric marker embellishments.  I loved the button closures and ribbon handles that were added by some.  Everyone was successful and made their cases within the hour.  Bonus, you got a cool pair of shades to fill up your case when you finished. 

Happy Spring Break!  Stay cool and we'll see you later this week.

I've been following your website for some time now....years(?) Love it!!! I work with kids and admire what you do. Actually considered offering sewing as an afterschool activity but realized how much work it would be!!!! I was excited to see your book and wanted to support you and your efforts. Today I bought your book at the local book store so I was able to support the local store and show my appreciation for what you do too.

Thank you

Gail, Thanks for buying the book - I hope you enjoy it! You should try sewing with kids. Once you get it going, it takes on a life of its own.
