Sew, Lisa, Sew

Something about fall makes me nostalgic for school, so in addition to my drawing classes, I’ve been taking a sewing class once a month at The Needle Shop to work on my skills and use up some of my fabric stash.

So far I’ve had a review sesh on how to make a pillow and I’ve learned how to make a tote bag!

My dogs, Ian and Harlow, love a comfy pillow to rest their heads on, so I made this one just for them using Peter Horjus’ Doglandia fabric in Ruff Bunch Brown.


Here they are, resting their cute little heads.

A few years ago I fell in love with this owl fabric and bought it intending to make a messenger bag, which I never got around to, since I wasn’t sure what I was doing. It’s canvas, so it’s a great heavy duty tote bag for someone like me who’s always lugging books around and the fabric is adorable. Can’t wait to make another one!


I have some more projects in the works, so check back soon for updates!
