Here are pictures of the projects I made at the Martha Pullen Beginning Sewing II Licensing Class. There are at least six more that I have kits for that I didn’t get done, and around five more that I got directions for but not kits. It’s amazing how much I can get done when all I do is sew for six days straight.
This is a reversible bag. G1 claimed it when she saw it. Good thing it’s pretty quick to make. It’s a good size and very sturdy – it could even be used as a grocery bag.
G2 claimed this fleece scarf and hat. The hat wasn’t part of the pattern, but I made it with the leftover pieces.
I really like this purse. The holes on the top are made with grommets and the scarf is threaded through. It seems like a very versatile pattern.
This zipped case could be used for pencils, make-up or whatever you want. Someone may have claimed this already as well.
This pillow case was quick and easy. It would be a great first project, and there are a number of variations. It can even be made into a drawstring bag. I made a matching set for G1 and G2.
This is an adorable little backpack. I don’t know if it will be big enough for anyone to use for school, but it would be great for taking pyjamas on a little trip.
This set of placemats and table runner are very interesting.
The border is a linen frame. The inside panel is removable, so you can change the look completely. You could have a whole set of different mats to use with the same frame. I will definitely make these again.
Here is a set of linen napkins to go with the placemats.
The edge is stitching done with a wing needle. This is the first time I used a wing needle, and I loved the effect. These were really quick and easy.
This is a jacket made with a linen-cotton blend.
Technically it is reversible, but I don’t think I will ever wear it this way. The pattern is a bit busy and it feels weird with the linen on the inside.
