Monday was my third sewing class at The Sewing Studio. This week's project was a drawstring bag (aka - shoe bag). I had cut my fabric really crooked but I am pleased with how it turned out.
Now last Friday when I had to prep (wash, dry and iron) all the fabric I bought, I decided to cut the fabric and iron on the interfacing for a little project I had my eye on...little baby slippers. I found this pattern online early this year but didn't have access to a sewing machine to make it. When my instructor told me that because I am a student at the studio, I could take advantage of some free studio time to do some sewing. Because on Wednesdays, fee studio time is only from 2:45 to 5:00 pm, I asked to leave work early and was able to get in an hour and a half. I made the cloth shoe in an hour (and that's because I did all the cutting, interfacing and pinning at home). I was a little ambitious thinking that I would be able to make two pairs today. So, here is the final product - the practice (or test) one. I am quite proud of it and hopefully, I can find some time to make more. What I love most about this shoe is the rubber sole fabric a salesperson at Fabricland showed me. Don't they look like little baby Toms shoes?
