Spring 2021 Sewing Class Update

Hi friends!  I have a very long list of things to do today, but I had to swing by quickly to share something with you.  I'm so excited at the progress I'm making in sewing class! 

This morning in sewing class, I pinned and sewed together the dolphin body, nose, tail and tummy pieces!  The fabric doesn't line up correctly on one side, but it's the same location that I have to hand sew after turning it and stuffing it, so I'm hoping that I can manipulate that part by hand.  Regardless, I'm so proud!  It looks like a dolphin!

This week, my instructor brought in her plush dolphin that she completed last night so I could see what it'll look like when it's done.  It's super cute!  I can't wait to finish mine!

Hopefully, mine will be done after my next class.  I have a few small tweaks to make next week, then I can turn it and put the stuffing inside!

After I finish my dolphin, I'm planning to join the class project to make pillow cases.  I don't think it'll take me two classes to complete them.  While they're moving ahead to another project, I'm hoping to work on the valences for our living room, kitchen and dining room before class is over.  My fabric actually just arrived in the mail from overseas yesterday.  After putting off ordering it for three years, I finally have it in hand!

Hopefully by the end of my spring sewing class, I'll have a plush dolphin, pillowcases and some valances to share with you!  I've only got three classes left so it's time to put it into high gear in order to get everything done!  °o°
