Can you believe that our next Lock-In is this Friday, March 26, 2010? Time does fly when you are having fun! In fact, to help me get ready I enlisted the help of my young friend, Brooke, to test sew our next Lock-In project.
Brooke describes herself as being an inexperienced sewer, but has gained a lot of confidence after completing the Smart Bag with me. Those of you who attended club saw what a wonderful job she did! Her bag is on display at the studio. She is letting us keep her bag until the Lock-in is over to inspire all who attend to use different embellishment methods to the cover. I think she did a fabulous job, and it is hard to believe that she is inexperienced when you see her work.
The Lock -In Project, the Julie Smart Bag, is a basic vinyl bag, that you can create mulitple, reversible covers for. This is a great bag for those who work in secure locations that allow only see through bags in, or for those of us who carry things in our bags that tend to spill. With the reverisble cover option, you can match your bag to any occasion.
In this Lock-In we will help you:
- learn some basic bag making techniques
- give hints and suggestions for working with vinyl
- examine different embellishment opportunities for the cover
- and give you directions for a bonus inside pocket!
Of course, since this is a Lock-in there will be a pot luck that you can bring a guest to before we get started. If you have never been to a Lock-In before come ready to learn and have a great time! Who knows, you may end up on facebook or YouTube!

See you on Friday!
